IBM Docs CR1 iFix002 has been published

It has been way to long since the last update, but I will be more frequent in the future. Having said that, iFix002 has been published with the following fixes:

Besides fixes from iFix 001, iFix 002 contains the following fixes:

  • In single editing mode, removed the “Saving” message to display the “All changes saved” message only.
  • Fixed the issue that a user cannot see the highlight of co-editors if the unique user id of the LDAP contains letters that are not in the scope of [A-Za-z0-9], such as email address.
  • Fixed the “unable to find WEB-INF/web_merged.xml” error after updating to CR1, for example, when you change entitlement for IBM Docs in WAS console.
  • Fixed the incorrect error message when viewing large files by changing “cannot be accessed” to “cannot be displayed” and adding download suggestion to customers.
  • Fixed the issue of not being able to run Docs Viewer on Linux when having no access to the tmp folder.
  • Fixed the issue of not being able to view .pdf files in iNotes with IBM Docs integration.
  • Fixed the incorrect displaying of the editor initial name after changing her or his first name.
    Note: You have to restart the Connections Server and Docs server to make the changes effective. Refer to the instructions about how to restart the Docs server: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21994694
  • Fixed the “com.ibm.wdp.bss.provisioning.EndpointServlet class not found exception” issue in SystemOut.log during IBM Docs startup.
  • Fixed the issue that cannot scroll to view all sheets while viewing a spreadsheet file that contains multiple sheets.
  • Fixed a security issue that if given a document editing link, any user can open the link and edit the document even if they are not editors of the document.
  • Fixed the problem that right and bottom borders of merged cells in a spreadsheet cannot be shown in Viewer.
  • Fixed the issue of failing to edit a document when meta.json is corrupted.
  • Fixed the issue in IBM Docs and ICN or CCM integration environment that some editors cannot see the edits of the other editors while co-editing if you have more than one Docs application server running.

iFix LO64399 for Mobile Support in Connections does not work on Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition

Some may have noticed that even after installing the iFix LO64399 September Update for IBM Connections 3.0.1 the mobile Applications on iOS and Android don’t work, even though the iFix Installer says it has been sucessfully installed.  Sjaak Ursinus found the reason for it: This problem only occurs on Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition and is due to a missing support line for this OS in the iFix.

There are two solutions to it:

1.  As found by Sjaak:  Add the line for Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition (“Windows 2008 R2”) to the MANIFEST.FM text file in the iFix (located with the fix: LO64399\efixes\LO64399\components\mobile\update\META-INF\MANIFEST.MF) and install it again.

2.  As found by Brian Ocs:  Run the Update Installer you use to install the fix with in Windows 2003 compatibility mode.

 

Once you have done that you should be able to access IBM Connections using the free apps in the App Stores of iOS and Android.
