I will do a session on administration of IBM Connections and how scripts can help you doing this next week at BCCON in Hamburg with my good friend Christoph Stöttner. He is THE man on this topic and I managed to convince him that he needs me as a co-speaker. His only request was that I had to create a brand new python script, so here we go. Read more

I manage all our Sametime client settings through managed-settings.xml and I love the simplicity.
But recently I updated our IBM Sametime environment to Version 9 and the managed settings stopped working.
So I enabled the debugging parameters in rcpinstall.properties and looked at the trace:
"org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: Premature end of file."
Mhmh, not very specific, sounds like a prob with the xml but I used the same xml without any problems with version 8.5.1
So I checked to open the file via Webbrowser, worked. As this wasn’t my first issue after the upgrade I was just about to change my job and become a gardener. OK, I opened up my webbrowser for a last time and wanted to check the settings again when a green light enlightened me:
Oh man, of course, I enabled “Redirect TCP to SSL” after the upgrade but forgot to change the “Sametime update site URL” accordingly. The browser has no issue with the http link and just was redirected to https, but the Notes/Sametime client doesn’t like this and throws the error.
Guess what, changing the link to https solved the issue, happy bunny
