Integrate Sametime Proxy 8.5.2 IFR 1 in IBM Connections 3.0.1.1

The last days i used to integrate Sametime in IBM Connections. I did this a few times the last two years, but i used ST 8.5.1 and older Connections Versions.

First of all, it is much easier to apply now. You mustn’t add Proxy entries to your IHS (IBM HTTPServer) or activate awareness lookup in profiles-config.xml – BUT you have to install exactly the right versions.

I mapped the wc_defaultport of Sametime Proxy to 80 and 443, so i mustn’t have special thoughts on firewalls. Now i checked out uiextensions-config.xml and added the URL of my Sametime Proxy Server. A good description can be found in Connections Wiki.

When you only install IFR 1 for IBM Sametime 8.5.2 the integration is working only 30%! The chat window appears, but awareness lookup is missing. I traced a lot and get error messages like: “Script is still running: http://webchat. mydomain.com/stbaseapi/proxyLoader.js?ver=STSU8.5.2.120111105.1050:8557 do you want to stop this script.”

On this point i got a hint of KBild, because he had a other build number of Sametime Proxy 8.5.2 working. So i found Sametime Proxy Server 8.5.2 IFR 1 fix for IBM Connections 3.0.1.1 and IBM WebSphere Portal 7.0.0.2 support and mobile enhancements, which told me to download the fix OBEN-8SRQTP from IBM Fix Central.

After applying this 870 MB fix everything is working fine. Awareness lookup and chat window appear.

FP01 for IBM Connections is available (Update)

The new fixpack for IBM Connections 3.0.1 is available. You can download the nearly 1 GB sized file on IBM Fixcentral.

Fixlist and installation instructions are linked on Fix Central.

Update

Some details of the Readme:

Prerequists

  • WebSphere Application Server fixes: PM56596 and ​PM51310​ to WAS 7.0.0.x. Please contact IBM WebSphere Application Server support to obtain the fixes.​
  • Integration with Sametime 8.5.2 requires Sametime hotfix OBEN-8SDLGS. Please contact IBM Sametime support to obtain the fix.​

So no direct download of the prerequists! You have to contact IBM Support for these downloads.

Update 21.03.2012

IBM changes the Readme for this Fixpack. They deleted the prerequisted WAS Fixes. So you can install without PM56596 and PM51310.

The required fix OBEN-85DLGS for IBM Connections 3.0.1.1 is available for download at IBM Fix Central now.

Installation instructions
Prerequisite: The Sametime System Console must be at version 8.5.2 IFR 1. If not, then you will see a failure message during the fix install noting an incorrect version level. Refer to Installing Sametime 8.5.2 Interim Feature Release 1 on the Sametime System Console to get started.
This fix must be installed on top of a Sametime Proxy Server 8.5.2 Interim Feature Release 1 (IFR 1). If the server is running 8.5.2 (without the IFR 1 fix), then the IFR 1 fix will be automatically installed.
