Communications Suite: Week in Review
By joesciallo on Aug 24, 2007
Looking back through my email this week, here are a couple of things that I'd like to pass along to the Comms community:
- Another week, and still no official statement supporting ZFS. But stay tuned, it's getting close.
- Doc error in the Communications Express 6.3 Administration Guide, where it says, for the uwc-user-attr-icsExtendedUserPrefs-ceNotifyEnable attribute:
Specifies whether to send email messages (containing ical attachments) to internal invitees when new events are created. Valid values are: false, true. By default, uwc-user-attr-icsExtendedUserPrefs-ceNotifyEnable is set to "1" (true).It appears that in this case, the attachment is not sent with the email, but this is not a feature bug, but rather, a doc mistake. Per the expert:
This setting enables the Notification feature for a user in the server. In the server if Notification is enabled, an email is sent to that address when an invitation is placed in the user's calendar. It is just a notification of the invitation in the calendar and not the invitation itself. So no ical attachments are sent. ical attachments are sent only to external invitees or internal invitees who have not given invite permission to their calendar. Such invitations have nothing to do with the ceNotifyEnable setting.
- In Messaging Server, to remove messages (imexpire command) placed in some sort of junk folder based on how long they have been in the folder (say you want to get rid of messages that are older than 100 days), you need to use the savedays attribute, which was added in a patch. See the Messaging Server 6.3 Administration Guide for more details: http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/819-4428/6n6j4267s?a=view
Note: Use the store.expirerule file to configure expire rules with the new attributes.
- Another doc issue with configuring Calendar Server 6.3 and SSL. From our expert:
I successfully configured Calendar Server 6.3 in SSL mode, but there is a documentation error with the Calendar Server 6.3 Administration Guide. The certutil -f
command mentioned in the Administration Guide expects the password as a single word in the passwordfile itself. The example in the doc states: - - - The format of password file entry is as follows: Internal (Software) Token: password - - - Instead of "Internal (Software) Token: password" you use something like "password1234". - - - NOTE: You can also use the certutil command without the -f option and enter a password, which puts this password into the sslpassword.conf file as well.
- Log rotation in Communications Express: For Communications Express 6.3, you use the uwc.log.maxsize and uwc.log.maxfiles properties to configure log rotation. To have the same functionality in Communications Express 6.2 (Java ES 2005Q4), you need patch 118540-41.
