Luminis IV Calendar

Submitted by admin on Tue, 08/28/2007 - 08:32

I've finally gotten the calendar to show up on the pop up after logging in, but not consistently. Seems to be a time out issues or something. I can click on the calendar, it will pop up and show me the calendar. I close the window and reopen it several times. Logout, login again, click on the calendar icon and I start getting a blank window. Sometimes it will stall at the vip, sometimes it will stall at the vip:8008 and sometimes it will give me an error message. I can logout again, login, click on the calendar and the calendar window will pop up and display the calendar.

Channel titles html

Submitted by baumli on Mon, 08/27/2007 - 10:55

Titles within channels in IV are limited to 150 before wrapping due to an html template.
It looks like right before this channel code:
span id="p_chan_title_txt" class="uportal-text"
There is this code that is limiting it:
td width="150"

Has anyone found where this code is located so this can be changed? In IE6 all the channel titles are wrapping if they're too long.

I've included an channel example to show how the titles are wrapping.

Cisco 11503 load balancer configuration.

Submitted by dfernelius on Thu, 08/23/2007 - 14:01

Would anyone be willing to share their Cisco load balnacer configuration with us. It seems that ours is not configured correctly but we are not sure what is wrong.
We have a two machine cluster, with only the resource machine running we can access Luminis through the load balancer but if I start up the second server ( Portal Tier ) we see the following error message
"Server Failed
The server that was managing your session may have been brought down for maintenance."

Please help!

Below is our load balancer configuration.
We are using a Cisco 11503.

LDAP to LDIF backups in RHEL

Submitted by suydam on Thu, 08/23/2007 - 10:40

Sungard recommends backing up LDAP on a regular basis.
The script they sent me to do this appears to be written primarily for Solaris.

I wrote the attached script to be used on our RHEL AS 3 box.
It runs in the cpadmin user's crontab and does the same things that the Sungard one did, namely:

  1. Open a log file
  2. Set Hotbackup on
  3. Export LDAP dbs to LDIF text files
  4. Compress the files
  5. Set Hotbackup off

Your mileage may vary, but our backup script is attached if anyone cares to see or use it (at their own risk, of course).

Customizations in a PDO environment

Submitted by dukekoch on Wed, 08/22/2007 - 12:14

We're implementing LPIV as our first portal, and I'm confused about where to make any layout modifications in our PDO environment. We had to change the login page on each of the portal machines individually, but the tutorial file was in the shared directory of the portals, and channel changes go on resource.
Now we want to customize the calendar & email icons. Where do we make these changes?

Severe lag issues - need help

Submitted by baumli on Mon, 08/20/2007 - 13:17

I'm posting this in hopes that someone else has heard of this or has had similar problems. We are running Luminis on Solaris 10, single deployment. We did have the .0.1.5 patch installed, but we took it off to test the .0.1.10 patch.

We are getting severe lag issues when logging in and while navigating and working in the portal. The login and lag may be 2 separate issues, we aren't sure.

Changing URL

Submitted by csilveri on Mon, 08/20/2007 - 10:08

Does anything have any experience in changing your URL for your portal. We're on Luminis III.3.3.
We are changing to University Status and need to change our url from to
SCT said we may have to do a full upload. We really don't want to do
this. All we're looking for is changing the cmcentral reference to emu.
I've sent a request to the Luminis Listserv also. I've had one great response, however, it looks like this is not an easy thing to do.
Any help would be appreciated.

Installing a patch?

Submitted by baumli on Fri, 08/17/2007 - 09:32

This is my first time installing a patch, the other patches were installed by the installer. Having a bit of trouble getting it to run so I thought I would post it here to see what I'm doing wrong.

We're on a solaris 10 system and had installed. I need to install the .0.1.1 patch, so I uninstalled the .0.1.5 patch by running "patchcp -u" and then the version. Worked fine. Now I need to install the patch.
