51 Oracle Universal Content Management

This chapter describes issues associated with Oracle Universal Content Management (Oracle UCM). It includes the following topics:

51.1 General Issues and Workarounds

This section describes general issues and workarounds. It includes the following topics:

51.1.1 Standalone Oracle Inbound Refinery Application Executables on Windows 7

On Windows 7, the standalone Oracle Inbound Refinery application executables are not automatically copied to the bin directory (Domain_Dir/ucm/ibr/bin). If you need to use standalone applications, you can copy and rename them from Idc_Home/bin. For example, to use System Properties, you should copy Idc_Home/bin/Installer.exe to Domain_Dir/ucm/ibr/bin/SystemProperties.exe.

Please note that Oracle Inbound Refinery is supported on Windows 7 in development environments only.

51.1.2 Folio Items With Content IDs Containing Multibyte Characters Do Not Display Correctly in Safari

If you use the Safari web browser to download content into a simple folio where one or more content IDs include multibyte characters, then these multibyte content IDs are displayed as '------'. To avoid this, you can either use Internet Explorer or Firefox, or avoid using multibyte characters in content IDs.

51.1.3 Site Studio Does Not Support Multibyte Characters in Site IDs, Directory Names, and Page Names

Oracle Site Studio does not support multibyte characters in any value that will be used in URLs, including site IDs, directory names, and page names.

51.1.4 Site Studio Publisher Does Not Support Multibyte Characters

Oracle Site Studio Publisher does not support multibyte characters.

51.1.5 Transferring Folder Archives Between Content Servers Fails If Server System Locales Do Not Match

If you transfer folder archives between two Oracle Content Server instances using the Archiver utility, then this will fail if these servers have different system locales. No folder will be created on the target server, and no items under that folder will be imported. To avoid this, make sure that the system locales of both content servers match.

51.1.6 Importing Folder Archives Fails If User Locale Did Not Match Server System Locale During Export

If you export a folder archive from the Folder Configuration page in Oracle Content Server and the user locale during export does not match the server system locale, then you will not be able to import that folder archive to the same or a different content server, even if the user and system locales on that server do match. To avoid this, make sure that the user and system locales match during the folder archive export.

51.1.7 New Folio Page Does Not Work in French and Italian Languages

If both the Folios and AppAdapterCore features are enabled, and the user language is set to either French or Italian, the New Folio page does not allow you to select a template and create a new folio.

51.1.8 UCM Servers and IPv6 Support

UCM servers are supported on IPv4/IPv6 dual-stack hosts, but not on"IPv6-only" hosts. The following topologies are supported:

  • Oracle Database on IPv4 hosts

  • Oracle UCM, Oracle URM, Oracle IBR on IPv4/IPv6 dual-stack hosts

  • Client (browser) on either IPv4 or IPv6 hosts

51.1.9 Large File Check-ins May Cause Timeouts

Large file check-ins often time out due to the amount of I/O that occurs. Database locks are held while the large file is written and this blocks subsequent check-ins. The IdcServerThreadQueryTimeout configuration setting can be used to lengthen the checkout time. The setting is expressed in seconds; to make the timeout 5 minutes, set IdcServerThreadQueryTimeout=300.

51.1.10 Content Categorizer Trace Log Settings Discontinued

The Content Categorizer-specific execution trace log settings are discontinued. Use the Content Server System Audit Information facility instead. To enable Content Categorizer execution trace, enter contentcategorizer in the Active Sections control of the Tracing Sections Information section of the Admin System Audit Information page.

51.1.11 Using Oracle UCM with OAM Server Under Single Sign-on

When Oracle UCM is used with Oracle Access Manager in a single sign-on environment, an entry to the config.cfg file must have the following lines added:

LogoutServerUrl=http://OAMserveraddress:port/ngam/server/logout?end_url=<$HttpBrowserFullWebRoot$>
RedirectHostsFilter=OAMserveraddress

51.1.12 Extra Lines Displayed Viewing Contribution Folders in Internet Explorer 8

When using Folders in Internet Explorer 8 with default settings, IE8 adds extra lines. This is solved by opening the Compatibility View Settings dialog and unselecting the Display intranet sites in Compatibility View checkbox.

51.1.13 WebDAV Connection Fails After Logout or Restart

In Windows 7 and Windows Vista clients, after logging out and logging back in or after restarting, the Network Place used to access UCM over WebDAV may no longer work. This is solved by deleting and recreating the connection.

51.1.14 LDAP Users Not Receiving Some Administrator Privileges

UCM inspects for the group "Administrators" on each user's login to grant UCM roles. If a user should have access to the UCM admin server, the UCM server requires that the user be a member in a group named "Administrators."

51.1.15 WinNativeConverter Requires .NET Framework

The IBR component WinNativeConverter requires the vb.Net libraries included in the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package for a Windows operating system. This package is available from the Microsoft Download Center at:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads Search for "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1" and download and install the dotnetfx35setup.exe on your Windows operating system.

51.1.16 Detailed Oracle OpenOffice Configuration Settings

When configuring Inbound Refinery to convert content using Oracle OpenOffice, additional configuration details can be found in the Oracle 10g release of the PDF Converter Installation and Administration Guide. The complete guide is available for download in either PDF or HTML format from Oracle Technology Network at the following URL:

http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E10316_01/ouc.htm

Oracle OpenOffice configuration is detailed in the "OpenOffice" section of "Installing Third-Party Applications" in Chapter 4, "Installing PDF Converter" and can be accessed directly at the following URL:

http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E10316_01/refinery/refinery_doc_10/pdfconverter/wwhelp/wwhimpl/common/html/wwhelp.htm?context=install_admin_pdfc_10en&file=page_04_19.htm

Oracle OpenOffice configuration is detailed in the "OpenOffice" section of "Installing Third-Party Applications" in Chapter 4, "Installing PDF Converter" and can be accessed directly at the following URL:

http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E10316_01/refinery/refinery_doc_10/pdfconverter/wwhelp/wwhimpl/common/html/wwhelp.htm?context=install_admin_pdfc_10en&file=page_04_19.htm

51.1.17 Clarification When Setting Classpath to OpenOffice Class Files

In the Oracle Digital Asset Manager and Conversion Administration guide, chapter 2 "Managing Conversions" under the section "Configuring Content Server and Refinery Communication," step 2 asks you to enter:

JAVA_CLASSPATH_openoffice_jars=<OfficePath>/Basis/program/classes/unoil.jar:<OfficePath>/URE/java/ridl.jar:<OfficePath>/URE/java/jurt.jar:<OfficePath>/URE/java/juh.jar

Note that the true value for <OfficePath> is likely to include spaces and care must be taken when setting this in a Microsoft Windows environment.

Ensure that the paths are not enclosed in quotes, that slashes (/) are used for path separators and not backslashes (\), and that any space in the path is escaped using a backslash (\). For example, a properly formed classpath in a Windows environment could look like this:

JAVA_CLASSPATH_openoffice_jars=C:/Program\Files/OpenOffice.org\3/Basis/program/classes/unoil.jar:C:/Program\Files/OpenOffice.org\3/URE/java/ridl.jar:C:/Program\ Files/OpenOffice.org\3/URE/java/jurt.jar:C:/Program\ Files/OpenOffice.org\ 3/URE/java/juh.jar

51.1.18 Oracle Inbound Refinery PDF Conversion May Differ Visually from the Original Content

Oracle Inbound Refinery makes every effort to maintain the visual integrity and formatting of content being converted from its native format to PDF, but Oracle cannot guarantee that the resulting PDF will be an exact visual replication.

51.1.19 Mismatching User and Server Locales Prevent Access to Oracle E-Business Suite and PeopleSoft Managed Attachment Pages in Oracle UCM

For the Oracle E-Business Suite and PeopleSoft managed attachment function in Oracle UCM, users are not granted access to managed attachment pages if their user locale does not match the server locale, which means they cannot view these pages.

51.1.20 Connection Issues with Windows to WebDAV

Supported Windows operating systems may have difficulty connecting to a WebDAV server running over HTTP and using HTTP Basic authentication in some situations. To correct for this, you must edit the registry of the client computer to enable Basic authentication. For detailed information, see Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 841215 at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/841215.

51.2 Configuration Issues and Workarounds

This section describes configuration issues and their workarounds. It includes the following topics:

51.2.1 Minimum JDBC Driver Version Required for Oracle Text Search Component

The Oracle Text Search component that is part of Oracle UCM 11gR1 requires a JDBC driver version of 10.2.0.4 or higher. The component will not work with older JDBC driver versions.

51.2.2 Manually Disabling 8.3 File Naming for Oracle Inbound Refinery on Windows 7

When running Oracle Inbound Refinery on Windows platforms, you may see this alert:

"The weblayout directory is on a filesystem with 8dot3 semantics. Legacy 16-bit 8dot3 filenames conflict with revision labels and will cause file loss. Disable 8dot3 semantics by running Installer DisableNtfs8dot3 and then restarting Windows."

On Windows 7, running Installer DisableNtfs8dot3 does not resolve this. You must make the configuration change manually in the Windows registry.

To change the Windows registry, go to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/FileSystem

Then, set the value of the NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation key to 1. You must restart Windows for the new setting to take effect.

Please note that Oracle Inbound Refinery is supported on Windows 7 in development environments only.

51.3 Documentation Errata

This section describes documentation errata. It includes the following topics:

51.3.1 Some Missing Information in Table 2-3 of the EDG for Oracle ECM

These four rows should be added to table 2-3 ("Used Ports") in the EDG for Oracle ECM (below the second "Browser request / FW0" row):

51.3.2 HTTP Frontend Port Setting in EDG for Oracle ECM

In the EDG for Oracle ECM, sections 6.14 and 8.19 state that the HTTP frontend port should be set to 80 only if no SSL is used. This is not correct. It must always be set to 80, regardless of the SSL status.

51.3.3 Incorrect Library Name in EDG for Oracle ECM

In the EDG for Oracle ECM, a library referenced in step 17 of section 8.3 ("Extending the Domain to Include Oracle I/PM") is incorrect. The library name is not oracle.soa.workplace.wc, but oracle.soa.workflow.wc.

51.3.4 Reversed Steps in Scale-out Procedure for Oracle I/PM in EDG for Oracle ECM

In the EDG for Oracle ECM, steps 13 and 14 in section 12.6.2.1 ("Scale-out Procedure for Oracle I/PM") should be reversed; in other words, Node Manager must be started before starting and testing the new managed server.

51.3.5 Incorrect Step in Scale-out Procedure for Oracle UCM in EDG for Oracle ECM

In the EDG for Oracle ECM, step 7 in section 12.6.2.2 ("Scale-out Procedure for Oracle UCM") is not entirely correct. It should read:

7. Assign the host name or IP of ECMHOSTn to use for the new managed server as the listen address of the managed server.

51.3.6 "Save As" Option Not Available in PowerPoint for Desktop Integration Suite

Sections A.10.1 and A.10.2 of the Oracle Fusion Middleware User's Guide for Desktop Integration Suite as well as the context-sensitive help pages for the Save dialog fail to mention that the Save As option is not available in Microsoft PowerPoint.

51.3.7 EnableOptimizedLatestReleaseQuerying No Longer Valid in Idoc Script

EnableOptimizedLatestReleaseQuerying is no longer a valid Idoc Script variable and should be disregarded.

51.3.8 Kofax Version Certification for Oracle UCM

Kofax versions 8.0 and 9.0 are both certified to work with UCM 11g.
