Targeted Content Channels

Submitted by carolhop on Fri, 09/14/2007 - 10:58

Hello everyone!
I'm finding that if I create a targeted content channel, then later modify the content (example: html) through "Managed Targeted Content Channels" .... that the change doesn't show up right away.
Does anyone else experience this, and if so, is there a way it can appear right away without stopcp/startcp?

If anyone knows where I would change the text of the message that appears on the "External Account Synchronization" prompt, I would appreciate some pointers. (This is the prompt that appears when a user tries to access a CPIP'd external system but fails the authentication.)

Nortel Load Balancer Configuration

Submitted by gmcaleese on Tue, 09/11/2007 - 12:28


We are in the process of setting up our Luminis IV parallel deployment installation. We are getting up to speed with the application switch we have, its an Nortel 2424-SSL running the alteon OS.

Has any other institution used this switch in either a Luminis III or Luminis IV environment (are there significant differences for parallel deployment between III and IV) and would be willing to share a sample config to accelerate our progress.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

SSO to OWA popup window for external acct sync

Submitted by mlee104 on Mon, 09/10/2007 - 12:01

Recently implemented SSO to OWA in test and production. When installed on production, received a popup window for the user to enter in external acct password and save this info to the secret store. This did not occur on our test system, is there settings that control this feature. What have other schools done to get by this popup sine we don't want to inconvience users with additional info to input? Please give me suggestions and/or let me know how your school implemented SSO to OWA and any issues encountered. See attachment for popup window details. Thanks.


cross domain sso with vista and luminis

Submitted by Dana on Thu, 09/06/2007 - 12:01

I am working with a college that has chosen to join a group of other schools to utilize a install of vista located at a location with a .org extension on the domain, everyone attaches to the .org for access to the vista url. however the school is .edu. I dont believe it is possible, but can you sso across domains? I get invalid secret, even after verification that they are correct. I have asked sct, and got a mixed response, and of course BB hasnt responded in 2 weeks. thanks for any input or tricks you might have for me to try.
