  • 3. Introduction This document ● Describes how to implement, in a very fast way, the infrastructure for a small deployment of a IBM Connections 4.0 Server. ● It is designed for a Proof of Concept, Proof of Technology or a small test pilot deployment only. ● It does not contain information how to implement a high available infrastructure. ● You can start with this document just to "make your bosses happy". But to make the system available for a larger number of users, it is recommended to invite IBM Services to plan and implement a clustered IBM Connections infrastructure in your organization that is fully supported. ● The Author has tested this scenario with the hardware specification and software components described in this document. ● You can use the official IBM support channels for any issue you raise when you use just this document to install your IBM Connections server. All instructions in this document are based on the official documentation wiki. ● You need IBM Connections licenses to download the code from Passport Advantage and to install and use this software. WARNING: Do not use this document to install a production environment. This single server installation is not supported in a production environment.Social Business 3 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 4. What is IBM Connections?IBM® Connections is social networking software that consists of these applications: Activities,Blogs, Bookmarks, Communities, Files, Forums, Home page, Metrics, Profiles, and Wikis.Use the IBM Connections applications to accomplish the following goals: ● Activities Collaboration tool for collecting, organizing, sharing, and reusing work that is related to a project goal. ● Blogs Online journals that you can use to deliver timely information with a personal touch. You can use a blog to present your ideas and get feedback from others or learn from the expertise of others who blog. ● Bookmarks Social bookmarking tool for saving, organizing, and sharing Internet and intranet bookmarks. Discover bookmarks that have been created by others with similar interests and expertise. Note: The application was previously named Dogear.Social Business 4 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 5. What is IBM Connections? (cont) ● Communities A website where people who share a common interest can interact with one another, share information, and exchange ideas. Community members can participate in community-specific activities and forums, and can share blogs, bookmarks, feeds, and files. ● Files A common repository in which you can upload files and share them with others. Store versions of a file, view who has downloaded a file or commented on it, and see highly recommended files. ● Forums A place to brainstorm and collect feedback on topics that are relevant to you and your colleagues. Statements and comments are collected in a format that captures the exchange of ideas and presents them as an ongoing conversation.Social Business 5 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  • 13. IBM Connections 4.0 Server Prerequisites For this pilot deployment you need ● a LDAP directory server that is supported (see system requirements) in this example we use Domino LDAP ● a Windows Server 2008 64Bit box for the installation ● Network and DNS configuration ● to download the required installation files from Passport Advantage and Fix Central ● several administrative user accounts ● a trusted certificate (optional) ● A IBM Lotus Domino 8.5.3 FP2 Server for Domino Mail integration (optional) ● A IBM Sametime Proxy Server 8.5.2 IFR1 for the Sametime awareness and BIZ- Card integration (optional)Social Business 13 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 14. Hardware required for this Pilot Example Deployment ● 1 Server that will host the following applications: ● IBM DB2 Server ● IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator ● IBM Connections 4.0 Server ● IBM HTTP Server ● Cognos Business Intelligence Quad CPU, 16GB RAM or more, 100GB disk space or more, 64 Bit OS 1 GBit Network Interface with 1 IP addresses and a DNS Alias entry. ● Supported OS for the IBM Connections Server components are: - Windows Server 2008, 64 Bit - Linux Enterprise Server RHEL or SLES - AIX This document describes how to install the components on a Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 64 Bit Service Pack 1 platform. A 32Bit Windows OS is not supported with this IBM Connections 4.0 Server components.Social Business 14 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 15. OS and Network requirements ● Make sure that all servers you want to use can be resolved in DNS. ● If DNS is not available then list all full qualified server names and IP addresses from all servers in the hosts file and publish this file to all servers. ● If your machine has multiple NIC and / or multiple IP addresses and / or multiple hostnames and / or multiple aliases in DNS then this can cause issues that we have not tested. We recommend to have a machine with only one NIC and one IP address, a full qualified host name in the OS network preferences and if required one DNS Alias for example “connections.renovations.com” if the machine name is cryptic and you dont want to use it as access point for your users. ● If you use Windows 2008 as Operating System, then you need to start all installations and configurations in „Administrative mode“.Social Business 15 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  • 22. Required technical users for IBM Connections 4.0 IBM Connections requires some technical users for components to communicate in an authenticated mode. All of this users should be configured so that the password never expires and never needs to be changed. db2admin This user is created during installation of the DB2 server in the Operating System. Do not create this user in advance. It is the user for all IBM Connections related components using DB2 to access their databases. Be sure to match the password policy requirements of the OS. LCUSER This user is created manually after installation of the DB2 server in the Operating System. Do not create this user in advance. It is the user for all IBM Connections related components using DB2 to access their databases. Be sure to match the password policy requirements of the OS.Social Business 22 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 23. Required technical users for IBM Connections 4.0 LDAP Bind This user is to send authenticated requests to your LDAP directory server. This is required to get back all required information from the LDAP. wasadmin This is the user to access the IBM WebSphere components and to administer the system. This user must not exist in your LDAP directory. It is created during WebSphere installation in a local file repository. You can use the same user name and password for all components (makes it easier) or different names and passwords. But again, it does not work when this user exists in the LDAP. ihsadmin This is the user to access the IBM HTTP Server components and to administer the system. This user must not exist in your LDAP directory. It is created during IHS installation in a local file repository. But again, it does not work when this user exists in the LDAP.Social Business 23 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 24. Required technical users for IBM Connections 4.0 Cognos Admin This user is required to administer the Cognos Business Intelligence and Transformer components in your Connections installation. This user must be created in your LDAP directory and the password should never expire as all technical user accounts. Take note of the shortname of this user. This shortname is required later in the post install tasks for Cognos.Social Business 24 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  • 26. Deployment optionsInstall IBM® Connections in one of three deployment topologies to achieve optimum scaling,load balancing, and failover.A network deployment can consist of a single server that hosts all IBM Connectionsapplications or two or more sets of clustered servers that share the workload. You mustconfigure an additional system with WebSphere® Application Server Network DeploymentManager.IBM Cognos® Business Intelligence is an optional component in the deployment. If used,Cognos must be federated to the same Deployment Manager as the IBM Connections servers.However, Cognos servers cannot be configured within an IBM Connections cluster.A network deployment provides the administrator with a central management facility and itensures that users have constant access to data. It balances the workload between servers,improves server performance, and facilitates the maintenance of performance when thenumber of users increases. The added reliability also requires a larger number of systems andexperienced administrative personnel who can manage them.Social Business 26 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 27. When you are installing IBM Connections, you have threedeployment options: ● Small deploymentInstall all IBM Connectionsapplications on a singlenode in a single cluster. Thisoption is the simplestdeployment but has limitedflexibility and does not allowindividual applications to bescaled up. All theapplications run within asingle Java™ VirtualMachine (JVM).Note: The diagram depicts atopology with up to 8servers. If you install theservers on shared systems,you do not need to deploy 8separate systems.Social Business 27 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 28. ● Medium deploymentInstall a subset of applicationsin separate clusters. IBMConnections provides threepredefined cluster namesshared among all of itsapplications. Use this optionto distribute applicationsaccording to your usageexpectations. For instance,you might anticipate higherloads for the Profilesapplication and install it in itsown cluster, while otherapplications could be installedin a different cluster. Thisoption allows you to maximizethe use of available hardwareand system resources to suityour needs.Social Business 28 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 29. ● Large deploymentInstall each application inits own cluster. IBMConnections provides apredefined cluster namefor each application. Thisoption provides the bestperformance in terms ofscalability and availabilityoptions but also requiresmore system resources.In most cases, you shouldinstall the News andHome page applicationsin the same cluster.Social Business 29 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 30. Different ways to a IBM Connections 4.0 Server deployment As you could see in the previous slides, you can install IBM Connections on one box and have up to nearly unlimited number of boxes for a really large high available deployment. The largest customer environment that I know is of more then 50 boxes where all 10 IBM Connections components run on a cluster of 3 servers and a high available dedicated IBM HTTP Server in front. Everything between one box and many boxes is possible. For your production environment a detailed architecture design and sizing is urgently recommended. In this pilot we use just one box for the IBM Connections Server and we assume you have a already existing Domino LDAP with user data. To make the installation easier, this document describes how to install the Cognos components on the same box as the IBM Connections server. It is known that this scenario can cause performance issues. But for a small test environment, a POC or POT, performance is not the main factor. We now will install one large box that will contain the DB2 Databases for all the IBM Connections Applications, the TDI to move personal data from the LDAP server to the People database, the Cognos Components, the IBM Connections server by itself and the IBM HTTP server for caching and SSL security in front.Social Business 30 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  • 36. STEP ONE: Prepare your machine and the network Summary Before you can install your IBM Connections Server environment, some things needs to be checked and prepared.Social Business 36 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 37. The machine that you run the IBM Connections 4.0 Server and the DB2 Database Server can be a virtual machine or a hardware box. Both work. It is possible to use Linux as OS, but this document describes how to install on Windows. If you use Linux you can use most parts of this document and most installation instructions and screen shots are identical. Mostly the paths are different. In Linux it is recommended to have the graphical system installed for this installation and then use a x-server on our client. These instructions work with Windows Server 2008 in 64Bit only. You can use the R2 Version of the supported OS. Be sure that your Firewall Admin has opened all ports in the firewalls. Test all connections using the telnet command in a CMD line window. Be sure the used host names or DNS alias is listed in the DNS and can be used and resolved in the internet and in your intranet.Social Business 37 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  • 39. STEP TWO: Prepare your LDAP Before you begin Ensure that you have installed a supported LDAP directory. For more information about supported LDAP directories, see the IBM Connections detailed system requirements topic. To ensure that the Profiles population wizard can return the maximum number of records from your LDAP directory, set the Size Limit parameter in your LDAP configuration to match the number of users in the directory. For example, if your directory has 100,000 users, set this parameter to 100000. For more information, see the documentation for your LDAP directory. If you cannot set the Size Limit parameter, you could run the wizard multiple times. Alternatively, you could write a JavaScript™ function to split the original LDAP search filter, then run the collect_dns_iterate.bat file, and finally run the populate_from_dns_files.bat file. Note: For information about a limitation in environments with a Turkish locale, see the Base entry comparison for Turkish locale external link technote.Social Business 39 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 40. The LDAP Server In most environments a LDAP server is already present. If you use Domino it is simple to just enable LDAP on one of the Domino Directory Servers. If you use an existing LDAP Server other then Domino, it is important to use a V3 compliant LDAP. Make sure you have all relevant data from the LDAP system. (use ldapsearch, Apache LDAP studio or another LDAP browser to get the relevant LDAP information - an LDIF extract of a user and a group) A security related recommendation is to have a Bind DN. This means a user record in the LDAP that can be used for authenticated access to the data in the LDAP server. We use the „LDAP Bind“ user in this example. This is a technical user. His password should never expire. Otherwise the systems can not connect to the LDAP server anymore when this password is expired. The LDAP connection can be configured with SSL encryption. To configure your Connections Servers connecting to LDAP with SSL (LDAPS), additional steps are required. Make sure that you have access to the required certificate. But we recommend to start without SSL and when all components work, start implementing LDAPS.Social Business 40 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  • 43. STEP THREE: Install the IBM DB2 Server, add the license and create users Summary This step installs the IBM DB2 Database Server release 9.7 and the FP6 update, installs the license key into the server and then creates a user for IBM Connections to connect to the databases.Social Business 43 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 44. You need to check your local password security policy that the users can be created and the passwords you want to use can be used. In your Windows 2008 server click on “Start” - “Administrative Tools” - “Local Security Policy”.Social Business 44 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  • 250. STEP TEN: Create the Cognos Administrator Account Attention: The Cognos administrator account must reside in the same LDAP directory used by IBM Connections. If you will use an existing LDAP account, take note of the user name and password. For example, if your organization already has a Cognos deployment, you might choose to use the same administrator account with Connections. If an acceptable account does not exist already, create it now; again, note the credentials for use later. The short name of this user needs to be used during the Cognos installation.Social Business 250 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 251. STEP ELEVEN: Create a WebSphere Application Server profile for Cognos B e fo re y o u b e g in This documentation assumes you are deploying Cognos Business Intelligence before you install IBM Connections. If you choose to deploy Cognos later, you can ignore any Cognos-related validation errors during the Connections installation process and then return to this section later for instructions on deploying the Cognos components. Even if you are not deploying Cognos now, you can create the raw Metrics database and install the Metrics application so that Connections can immediately begin capturing event data for later use.Social Business 251 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 252. About this task IBM Connections requires a customized version of Cognos Business Intelligence, which is installed using the provided script. You cannot use previously deployed Cognos Business Intelligence components with the Metrics application. For best performance and in a production environment, use a separate computer for the customized version of Cognos Business Intelligence. In this small pilot we use the IBM Connections server to host the Cognos components. It is known that this scenario can cause performance issues during creation of metrics data in IBM Connections. The WebSphere node hosting the Cognos BI and Cognos Transformer server will be federated to the same dedicated Deployment Manager as your IBM Connections deployment. Do not use a WebSphere node that has already been federated to a different Deployment Manager. In this example we will use a server where the appropriate version of WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment is already deployed. You do not have to install it again; just create a new Application server profile for Cognos Business Intelligence as follows:Social Business 252 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 253. Open a CMD line window in administrative mode and navigate to the Deployment Managers binary directory with the command “cd IBMWebSphereAppServerprofilesDmgr01bin”. Now you can create the profile with the command: “manageprofiles.bat -create -templatePath C:IBMWebSphereAppServerprofileTemplatesdefault -adminUserName wasadmin -adminPassword passw0rd”.Social Business 253 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 254. The profile “AppSrv02” was created successfully.Social Business 254 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 255. STEP TWELVE: Install the Cognos Business Intelligence and Transformer Server B e fo re y o u b e g in The following conditions must be satisfied to ensure that the Cognos Business Intelligence components installs correctly: ● The Cognos Content Store database must have been created on the database server, and that database server must be running (see Creating databases) ● The current server must reside within the same domain as the IBM Connections servers so you can enable SSO (Single Sign-On) as required for generating reports. ● The user running the Cognos installation script must have permissions to use the database client.Social Business 255 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  • 626. Connections 4.0 on Mobile devices You can use the web browser on your mobile device to access the mobile version of IBM Connections. The mobile version optimizes the applications for use from a mobile device. It makes it easier for you to perform tasks with a minimal number of clicks. Instead of using the web version from a mobile device, you can also install native applications on the following devices: Android devices Apple iPhone Apple iPad Apple iPod Touch BlackBerry OS6 devices Search for the IBM Connections application from the Apple App Store, Android Market, or BlackBerry App World.Social Business 626 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 627. How do I enable the mobile version? Before you begin Note: While it is possible to access IBM Connections by using the browser on your mobile device, IBM recommends that you use the IBM Connections native app instead. The native app is available for following mobile devices: Android Apple iOS BlackBerry Establish how mobile users will remotely and securely connect into your enterprise for IBM Connections mobile access from a device. If your enterprise requires the use of a VPN for mobile device remote access, Lotus Mobile Connect is a recommended option.Social Business 627 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 628. How do I enable the mobile version? If you use signer certificates that are not already trusted by the web browser, install the SSL signer (trust) certificate on the mobile device. Standard certificate authorities, such as VeriSign, for example, are trusted by most web browsers, so you would not need to perform this step if you are using a certificate from a standard certificate authority. To install the SSL signer certificate on the mobile device, complete the following step: ● Apple iOS: Send an email to your users with the certificate provided as an attachment. Ask your users to open the attachment from the device. When they do, the device recognizes and installs the certificate. ● Devices that run on the Symbian operating system: Refer to the documentation for the device to find out how to install certificates. For example, to install a certificate on the Nokia S60 device, go to the Nokia website. When you install IBM Connections, select the option to install Mobile. Note: If you already installed IBM Connections, but did not select the Mobile application at the time, you can rerun the installation wizard in Modify mode.Social Business 628 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 629. How do I enable the mobile version? Instruct your users that they can access the mobile version of IBM Connections by completing the following steps: 1) Log in to your intranet from the mobile device. 2) Go to the following web address: http://hostname/mobile in this example we can use “http://connections.renovations.com/mobile” where hostname is the same server host name from which users access IBM Connections in a standard web browser.Social Business 629 © 2010 IBM Corporation

Be aware that all people using this system must agree to show their phots to others. The following task demonstrates an easy way to import a small number of user photos (no more than 50) into profiles for a IBM Connection Pilot. However, if you have more people and want an automated process for maintaining photos it is recommended to invite IBM Services to develop a solution that will fit your environment.Social Business 764 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 765. Setting up your development environment About this task When you install IBM Connections, a set of Tivoli Directory Integrator (TDI) components are installed on your system. These components are used by the population wizard and other TDI tasks, such as the synchronization tasks, to populate and update the IBM Connections user directory. They are stored in a compressed file referred to as the TDI solution directory (tdisol.zip or tdisol.tar). With the CR2 fixpack you have downloaded the file 4.0.0.0-IC-Multi- TDISOL-CR2-LO72170.zip. Unzip this file first and use the tdisol.zip from there. The solution directory includes a set of connectors, which are standard TDI components that you can use to build your own TDI assembly lines when the assembly lines in the solution directory do not suit your needs. Your custom assembly lines can: ● Use an available plug point, such as an alternate source for profiles data or custom delete processing ● Create a stand-alone program to interact with the profiles, photos, pronunciation, or code sections of profiles through the available connectors. This section describes how to set up a development environment in which you can write your own assembly lines using the Profiles TDI connectors provided in the IBM Connections installation package.Social Business 765 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  • 797. About this task When you enable presence awareness using the Sametime Proxy server, a persons online status is indicated by a set of icons and an associated status message that is available from the persons profile and business card. Presence awareness tells you whether the person is available to chat, busy in a meeting, or away from their computer. In addition to seeing a persons availability, you can carry on a chat with that person even when no Sametime client is installed. SSL support: If you have configured the product to send traffic over SSL, presence awareness can be retrieved over SSL. For more information about enabling SSL for Sametime, refer to the documentation provided with the Sametime SDK, which is available from the following web site: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/lotus/downloads/toolkits.html Note: After downloading the toolkit, the documentation can be found in the sdk/client/connectWebApi/doc/ConnectWebApiDevguide.pdf directory.Social Business 797 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  • 806. Configure your Sametime Proxy Server to use Connections as the business card server Overview There are two potential areas of integration where Connections features can be surfaced within Sametime: ● Photos stored in Connections profiles can appear in Sametime web client instant message headers and Sametime business card. ● Connections business card can be used in place of Sametime business card. Note that both of these require that email addresses are enabled on the Connections server. This is the default setting in a Connections deployment but to verify whether this has been disabled check LotusConnections-config.xml. There is a setting in this file called exposeEmail enabled which needs to be set to true for the following integration points to work.Social Business 806 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 807. Displaying Connections profile photos in Sametime web client instant messages The following steps are required in order to display the photos stored in Connections profiles within the Sametime web client. Note that this configuration does not affect the Sametime Connect client. ● Add a photoURL to the LDAP person records. ● Configure the photoURL in the Sametime Community server.Social Business 807 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 808. Add a photoURL to the LDAP person records The example environment uses the Domino directory as the LDAP. By default, person records contain a field named photoURL which is displayed in the Miscellaneous tab of the person record.Social Business 808 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 809. Complete this field with a URL in the following format: http://Connections_hostname/profiles/photo.do?email=user_email_address For example, in the example environment the URL: “http://connections.renovations.com/profiles/photo.do? email=sametime.guru@renovations.com” when typed into a browser displays the photo associated with the account that has that email address.Social Business 809 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 810. Configure the photoURL in the Sametime Community server The contents of the Sametime business card is controlled by the userInfoConfig.xml file that is stored in the Domino program directory of the Sametime Community server. In order to use the photoURL field to generate the photo to display in the Sametime web chat headers and business card: Append the following line to the Details section <Details> <Detail Id="MailAddress" FieldName="mail" Type="text/plain"/> <Detail Id="Name" FieldName="cn" Type="text/plain"/> <Detail Id="Title" FieldName="title" Type="text/plain"/> <Detail Id="Location" FieldName="postalAddress" Type="text/plain"/> <Detail Id="Telephone" FieldName="telephoneNumber" Type="text/plain"/> <Detail Id="Company" FieldName="ou" Type="text/plain" /> <Detail Id="Photo" FieldName="jpegPhoto" Type="image/jpeg" /> <Detail Id="PhotoURL" FieldName="PhotoURL" Type="text/plain"/> </Details>Social Business 810 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 811. Add PhotoURL as a parameter in both lines in the ParamSets section <ParamsSets> <Set SetId="0" params="MailAddress,Name,Title,Location,Telephone,Photo,PhotoURL,Company"/> <Set SetId="1" params="MailAddress,Name,Title,Location,Telephone,Photo,PhotoURL,Company"/> </ParamsSets> Save and close the UserInfoConfig.xml file. Then restart the Sametime Community Server.Social Business 811 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 812. To verify the configuration: 1)Login to the Sametime web client (either using the Sametime 8.5.2 Proxy server or the Sametime 8.5.1.1 Proxy server) using the credentials of one of the LDAP users. 2)Using a separate browser, login to the Sametime web client as a different LDAP user. 3)From one of the browsers add the other user to the contact list (if not already added). 4)Hover over the users name and the Sametime business card should be displayed with the Connections profile photo. 5)Start a chat with the user and the users photo should appear in the header of the instant message.Social Business 812 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  • 813.
