Installing IBM Connections 5.0, CR2 and IBM Docs on Linux – Guides

My colleague Charles Price has created two guides covering the installation of IBM Connections 5.0, CR2 and IBM Docs on Linux. While I have created guides like that before, I have always done them on Windows, as Linux is, for me at least, a different kind if beast that I have so far avoided as much as I can. 😉

Here you go:

Installation guide IBM Connections 5.0 on Linux

Installation guide IBM Connections 5.0 CR2 on Linux

Installation guide IBM Docs 1.0.7 on IBM Connections 5.0 CR2 on Linux 

 In the last one I especially like the two topics of upgrading CCM for Docs as well as the description on how to configure either NFS or CIFS shares.

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).

Here the direct link to the guide:
