I started a new project on OpenNTF for the collection of scripts we created to speed up and simplify WebSphere and Connections Administration.
Link to this project: Administration Scripts for WebSphere
In the moment most of documentation is only as comment in these scripts. Descriptions can be found in Github and Slideshare.
- J2EE Security Role Backup and Restore
- Set initial Security Roles for Connections Applications (Author: Klaus Bild)
When you want to start with this collection, copy the jython script to your Deployment Manager bin-folder ($WAS_HOME/profiles/Dmgr01/bin) and call the scripts with wsadmin.sh -f scriptname
I will create more documentation in the next days. Please use the slideshare documents and icon uk presentation to begin using and coding jython.
I will presentate some of these scripts on 50. Dannotes on Thursday 28th November in Korsør.

This week i attended the Admincamp in Gelsenkirchen. It was a awesome event, where i met lots of friends and other cool people.
I made two sessions, you can find the session slides here, in this special case in german.
- Security and Administration of IBM Connections
- Save the mice – Scripting in WebSphere, Connections and DB2 (Online Version)
I have extended and translated the session slides from ICONUK.
You can download this Slides as ZIP:
- index.html is ICONUK Version
- index-ac.html is german AdminCamp Version
Here some of my impressions:
Oping session with Rudi Knegt
Very interesting, but sometimes hard to understand was the second evening:
Rudi live on stage and speaking in *rudisch *about geographic things of the Netherlands and flying dutchmen. Ulrich promised he has a video, i will link it here, when i have found it.
Resume: i enjoyed it very much and i’ll come back next year.
IBM finally released CR2 for IBM Connections 4.5
You find more details and download links here.
One fix is the hard coded wikis toc strings. Will test it.
You have to update FNCS to 18.104.22.168-FNCS-IF001. Document contains a short description of the update procedure (Do not forget to read the whole document! Backup the files, because you have to restore them later).
Cognos and Metrics Database needs some changes.
I added several plugins to my Eclipse, so i can access the scripts on GitHub and edit through an IDE:
Jython and Python Development
Markdown (Documentation within Github)
