The following are the known issues and limitation of the Portal Server software.
Portal Server Secure Remote Access component cannot be configured after Portal Server is configured. It has to be configured along with Portal Server.
Deployment of Portal Server on two different instances of Application ServerTM 8.1 within the same domain is not supported.
Existing Application Server 8.1 domains which requires master password interactively during stop-domain and start-domain is not supported. The configuration will fail if an existing domain requires master password during start-domain operation. For Application Server 8.1, deal with master password by creating a new domain using the following command:
asadmin create-domain --adminuser userid -passwordfile PasswordFile --adminport AdminPortNumber --instanceport InstancePortNumber --savemasterpassword=true domain_name.
For Proxylet, JWS mode is not supported on Mozilla 1.6. However, it works fine in Mozilla 1.7 browser with JVM 1.5.
Template loaded by shared events and tasks is not accessible through psconsole.
Calendar and Address Book channels do no support Microsoft Exchange 5.5 because it is unsupported by Microsoft.
When creating a search database, double byte characters are not allowed in the database name.
For Registry functionality to work on Portal Server node apply patch 119189-04 for Sparc and x86, and 119190-04 for Linux.
Newly deployed portlets are not listed under WSRP unpublished portlets. (See bug #6350283).
Portal Server management console does not work on WebLogic and WebSphere containers. (See bug #6295109)
Repeated Directory Server searches slow down Portal Server. Apply the appropriate patch 20051207patch1.1.qa.
Changes in Access Manager causes a slowdown in Portal Server throughput and an increase in Directory Server utilization. So, add the appropriate patch (120954-01 for SPARC, 120955-01 for x86, or 120956-01 for Linux) to Access Manager and modify the Logging Service buffer size from the Access Manager administration console. To modify the Logging Service buffer:
Log in to the Access Manager administration console and select Service Configuration > Logging > Buffer Size.
Enter a value of 50.
Secure Remote Access crashes due to too many requisitions. Do not deploy Secure Remote Access software without the patch.
The psadmin create-instance does not deploy portal.war on the managed server. (#6375532)
Searching for a discussion throws desktop error on WebSphere. (#6375526)
Documentation needed for redeploying patched portlet application. (#6379302)
