  12. 12. Detailed system requirements for IBM ConnectionsYou can find the official IBM Connections System Requirements here:IBM Connections Mail 1.0 system requirements (for IBM Connections 4) (#7036069)IBM Connections 4.0 system requirements (#7035893)Social Business 12 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  13. 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 Active Directory 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 ● some special administrative user accounts ● a trusted certificate (optional)Social Business 13 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  14. 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 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 Server components.Social Business 14 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  15. 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 only with 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

  21. 21. 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 21 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  22. 22. 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. Here the Full Qualified Distinguished Name in AD is: “CN=LDAP Bind,CN=Users,DC=ad,DC=renovations,DC=com” 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 22 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  23. 23. Agenda ● Introduction ● Requirements for a IBM Connections 4.0 installation ● Architecture of a IBM Connections 4.0 Server deployment ● The 15 steps to a IBM Connections 4.0 Server deploymentSocial Business 23 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  24. 24. 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 24 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  25. 25. 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 25 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  26. 26. ● 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 26 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  27. 27. ● 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 27 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  28. 28. Different ways to a IBM Connections 4.0 Server deployment As you could see in the previous slides you can install 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. 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. Everything between one box and many boxes is possible. For your production environment a detailed architecture design and sizing is urgently recommended. 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 IBM Connections server by itself and the IBM HTTP server for caching and SSL security in front.Social Business 28 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  32. 32. 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 32 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  33. 33. 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 33 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  35. 35. 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 technote.Social Business 35 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  36. 36. 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 36 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  39. 39. 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 creating a user for IBM Connections to connect to the databases.Social Business 39 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  40. 40. 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 40 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  41. 41. If the Password complexity setting is enabled then the password must contain characters in upper and lower case and a number. If you want easier passwords the set this flag to “Disabled”.Social Business 41 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  246. 246. STEP TEN: Install the IBM Connections Server B e fo re y o u b e g in Ensure that you complete all the prerequisite tasks that are relevant for your environment. For more information, see the Before installing topic. A b o u t th is ta s k To install IBM Connections, run the IBM Installation Manager wizard on the system where the Deployment Manager is installed.Social Business 246 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  247. 247. If an error occurs during installation, IBM Installation Manager cancels the installation and rolls back the installation files. Installation errors are usually caused by environment problems such as insufficient disk space, privilege issues, or corruption of a WebSphere® profile. If your installation is canceled, complete the following steps: ● Identify and resolve the error that caused the cancellation. After canceling the installation, IBM Installation Manager displays an error message with an error code. You can look up the error code in the Installation error messages topic or check the log files. ● Restore the Deployment Manager profile from your backup. ● Delete the connections_root directory. ● Start this task again.Social Business 247 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  279. 279. The installer has installed the IBM Connections Server into the existing node. You need to start the node. First you need to start the nodeagent and synchronize the configuration. Open a CMD line window and navigate to the profile directory with the command “cd C:IBMWebAphereAppServerprofilesAppSrv01bin”. Then enter the command “startnode”.Social Business 279 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  280. 280. The nodeagent has started successful.Social Business 280 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  281. 281. In the task manager you can see that the process db2syscs.exe now uses much more memory and 2 java.exe processes are running. One is the dmgr and the other is the nodeagent. They are consuming a lot of CPU time in the next minutes because they are synchronizing the configuration from the dmgr to the node.Social Business 281 © 2010 IBM Corporation
  282. 282. The synchronization process is starting automatically. You dont need to initiate it manually. Tocheck that it works, open a File Explorer and navigate to the directory“C:IBMWebSphereAppServerprofilesAppSrv01installedAppsconnectionsCell01”. Youshould see that the synchronization creates this 16 directories. Wait until all of them arecreated and the 2 java.exe process in the task manager dont consume CPU time anymore.Social Business 282 © 2010 IBM Corporation

  298. 298. STEP ELEVEN: Reviewing the JVM heap sizeA b o ut th is ta s kIf you selected the Small or Medium deployment option when you installed IBM®Connections, IBM Installation Manager set the Maximum Heap Size of the JavaVirtual Machine (JVM) on each application server. This setting is designed to avoidout-of-memory errors.Review the heap size on each server to ensure that you are allocating enoughmemory for IBM Connections but also to ensure that you are not allocating morememory than the physical capabilities of the systems where the JVMs are deployed.Whether you installed a Small, Medium, or Large deployment of IBM Connections,you should review the JVM heap sizes in your deployment and make adjustments, ifnecessary.To review the JVM heap size, complete the following steps:Social Business 298 © 2010 IBM Corporation
