Some highlights: all scripts are moved to a subfolder with DMGR/bin (folder name: ibmcnx) tested in multinode environments added some classes everybody can use for his own scripts adding policies to libraries (personal and communities) are using search now New scripts: documentation of all jvm settings of each application server create a file with all documentation in one step create cluster members for additional nodes

The IBM Connections Product Documentation is only available as a set of Wiki Documents and in a accessible version (5 single html documents). I don’t like both versions.

I set StatementCacheSize, minConnections and maxConnections with this script. Download: changeDataSourceParameters Using this script Copy this script to your server and copy & paste it to a wsadmin-Session, or start wsadmin with

Klaus Bild provided two scripts for setting Connections Admins through jython and wsadmin. I want to add one detail, when you want to add multiple Admins, then you can use pipe | as delimiter. First line would be connwasadmin='wasadmin|conadmin' Thanks Klaus, i like to set the admins through a script, because fixpack installations often set the j2ee roles to default.
