I was using the Job Plans application in one of my test instances the other day and unexpectedly found one of the fields was read-only. Cross checking with two other Maximo instances I had access to, I confirmed that Out Of The Box the field should not be read-only, it should be read-write. The field in question was the Nested Job Plan field. Here it is: (NB: It is no longer greyed out - I have already fixed it - see below) Figure1: To correct this I had to export the application...

There are a few things to consider. Please note that IE 11 Enterprise Mode is being asked to emulate IE 8 which we support for this version of Maximo. It is not a very popular option and our testing on this version is not as comprehensive as some other browser tests we do. We do, however, expect it to function similar to IE 8. Some functionality does not function as expected in IE8. The list includes, but is not limited to: 1. Rich Text Fields (Rich Text editor is used in Long Description (LD) fields to format LD content in a rich... [More]

Hi Everyone, over the years we have found that troubleshooting ldapsync / vmmsync issues can be a bit confusing. I have found that creating a specific log file that only logs the sync information has been very helpful. This prevents you from sifting through the systemout.log to pick out the sync messages and errors. That can sometimes be like trying to find a needle in a hay stack. Follow the steps below to create a specific log ldapsync and vmmsync. Go to the Logging application. Go to select action drop down... [More]

Ever wondered if the Interim Fix you were sent for a specific APAR a while back and that you didn't get the chance to apply on your Maximo environment, is still up-to-date? Since those are cumulative, it might be worth applying the latest version and therefore include the more recent APAR fixes delivered for that specific fixpack level. You might therefore want to check out the " Maximo Interim Fixes " blog on IBM DeveloperWorks: https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/connect/maximoifix You can find the latest Interim Fixes that were...

Today, I'm going to go over step by step installing a Maximo 7.6 Feature Pack. It is very similar to the process for installing Interim Fixes, which I documented at Installing an Interim Fix in Maximo 7.6 . I thought that a post dedicated solely to Feature Pack installation would be useful. Feature Pack releases differ from older Fix Pack releases in that, in addition to bug fixes and compatibility notices, new functionality may be added. See Maximo 7.6 Maintenance Delivery Strategy for more... [More]
