Disable UAC in Windows when installing IBM Docs 1.0.7

I lately saw a lot of installations of IBM Docs 1.0.7 fail when using the new Graphical Installation Interface. Most of them failed while executing the remote jobs. The Remote Job Manager of WebSphere does the installation on the remote servers (the Docs installation is done centrally and distributing all components to the corresponding servers).  To do so, the User Account Control (UAC) of Windows must be disabled, since otherwise the installer will trigger the Windows warnings asking, if you really, really, really want to do something – except, that this pop up will not show up. Consequently the installation step will fail, as Windows does not allow this step to be done.

While this is very important it seems to be missed very easily.  Here you can find it in the installation instructions:


If you cannot disable UAC in your environment, then you will have to use the script based installation.

How to integrate IBM Docs 1.0.7 with IBM Connections 5.0 CCM CR2 (Filenet Libraries in Connections)

IBM Connections CCM integrates IBM Connections Communities with Filenet libraries, allowing users to store files hierarchically and add further features such as file types and approval process to it.  IBM Docs is able to integrate into those libraries to all user to view and edit files collaboratively. How to do this is unfortunately at the moment not very well documented in the IBM Docs knowledge center (this will be changed in the near future). Therefore I have created a Step by Step guide that will help you to install IBM Docs 1.0.7 on a IBM Connections 5.0 CCM CR2 system including the integration with Filenet Libraries.

You can find the guide on Greenhouse. Greenhouse is IBMs collaboration demonstration platform available to everyone, demonstrating solutions such as Sametime, Portal, Connections, Docs, Forms and many more (you will have to sign up, though).
