    Affected Users: All Users
    
    Requisites:
       pre-requisite Portal Component: WCM 6.1.0.1 GA build 119.2
       pre-requisite interim fixes: None
    
    Platform Specific: No
    
    Fix pack: This fix will be integrated into WP v6.1.0.2
    
    Installation Steps:
    
    NOTE: YOU MUST FIRST DOWNLOAD THE UPDATE INSTALLER TOOL IN ORDER
    TO INSTALL A FIX.
          The Portal Update Installer can be downloaded from the
    following link:
          http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg24006942
    
    -- Do not apply this cumulative fix at the same time as another
    cumulative fix.
    -- Do not apply this cumulative fix at the same time as any
    interim fixes.  Apply interim fixes after the installation of a
    cumulative fix.
    -- Only apply this cumulative fix on a system which does not
    have a newer cumulative fix installed.
    -- If you have installed the updated editor you must re-deploy
    the editor after installing the cumulative fix. Please read the
    editor installation guide for instructions on the re-deployment
    process.
    
    Install:
    
    - Create a temporary "fix" directory to store the jar file.
    - Copy jar file to this directory.
    - Shutdown WebSphere Portal.
    - Ensure the pre-requisite fix(es) are installed.
    - Follow the fix installation instructions that are packaged
    with the Portal Update Installer on how to install a fix.
      NOTE: If a pre-requisite fix is not installed, the Portal
    Update Installer will fail and will list the missing
    pre-requisite fix(es).
    - Restart WebSphere Portal.
    - Backup any files (e.g. custom JSPs) which have been copied to
    the deployed WCM EAR or portlet WAR directories
    - Run {WAS_PROFILE_ROOT}/ConfigEngine/ConfigEngine.sh|bat
    update-wcm -DPortalAdminPwd=<password> -DWasPassword=<password>
    -Restart Portal
    - Update the deployed remote rendering portlet:
       - Backup any files (e.g. custom JSPs) which have been copied
    to the deployed remote rendering portlet WAR directory
       - Log in to Portal as the Portal Administrator
       - Navigate to: Administration / Portlet Management / Web
    Modules
       - Find and select the remote rendering portlet web module
       - Click the Update Portlet Icon to the right of the selected
    portlet
       - Select the updated portlet WAR file located in:
    [PortalServer]\wcm\prereq.wcm\installableApps
       - Click Next and Finish
    - Log out of Portal for the changes to take effect.
    
    Refer to the clustering section of the Portal Information Center
    (typically 'Clustering -> Performing Upgrades in a 24x7
    cluster') for additional information on installing interim fixes
    in clustered environments while maintaining continuous
    availability of your Portal.
    
    APAR configuration:
    PK74353 (Add utility to allow bulk removal of drafts)
    
    A new DraftDetectionModule with optional 'remove' mode
    (remove=true) has been developed to automate removing drafts.
    The module must first be configured in the WCM configuration
    file (like similar modules such as the
    MemberFixer/LibraryDelete)
    before it can be used. To configure the new module, perform the
    following steps:
    1) Edit the
    \wcm\shared\app\config\wcmservices\WCMConfigService.properties
    file
    1a) Add the following three lines underneath the
    'connect.businesslogic.module' property:
    connect.businesslogic.module.draftdetection.class=com.aptrix.plu
    to.workflow.DraftDetectionModule
    connect.businesslogic.module.draftdetection.remoteaccess=true
    connect.businesslogic.module.draftdetection.autoload=false
    1b) Add 'draftdetection' to the end of the
    'connect.businesslogic.module' property
    connect.businesslogic.module=<existing entries>,draftdetection
    2) Restart the server To run the new module in report mode,
    hit the following URL in the browser:
    http://[HOST]:[PORT]/wps/wcm/connect/?MOD=draftdetection&library
    =[LIBRARY]
    To run the new module in remove mode, hit the following URL in
    the browser:
    http://[HOST]:[PORT]/wps/wcm/connect/?MOD=draftdetection&library
    =[LIBRARY]&remove=true
    
    Search (included in CF7 and above) a new field called
    ControllableID has been added to the seedlist attributes. After
    applying the cumulative fix, if the Search Component is
    accessing a collection crawled using the old seedlist, it will
    fail to return any results, because the ControllableID was not
    stored earlier. In such cases the Content Source will need to be
    re-created or re-crawled as follows:
     -Edit the Site and uncheck the "searchable" box.
     -Save the Site (This will remove the content source for the
    Site).
     -Edit the Site and enable the "searchable" box
     -Save the Site.
     -Go to Manage Search -> Collections -> Content Source created
    for this Site and run the crawl again.
    Un-Installation Steps:
    
    NOTE: FIXES MUST BE REMOVED IN THE ORDER THEY WERE APPLIED.
          DO NOT REMOVE A FIX UNLESS ALL FIXES APPLIED AFTER IT HAVE
    FIRST BEEN REMOVED.
          YOU MAY REAPPLY ANY REMOVED FIX.
    
    - Shutdown WebSphere Portal.
    - Follow the instructions that are packaged with the Portal
    Update Installer on how to uninstall a fix.
    - Restart WebSphere Portal.
    - Backup any files (e.g. custom JSPs) which have been copied to
    the deployed WCM EAR or portlet WAR directories
    - Run [WPS_ROOT]\config\WPSconfig.bat|sh update-wcm
    -DPortalAdminPwd=password
    
    
    Refer to the clustering section of the Portal Information Center
    (typically 'Clustering -> Performing Upgrades in a 24x7
    cluster') for additional information on uninstalling interim
    fixes in clustered environments while maintaining continuous
    availability of your Portal.
    
    DISCLAIMER:
    
    This fix has received limited testing only and has not undergone
    IBM's complete quality assurance process. It is therefore
    recommended that it be tested in a testing environment before
    applying it to a working (authoring, production/live) system.
    You should always backup your data before installing a fix or
    fixpack.
