Problem with WCM on second node of cluster
Having built my WebSphere Portal / Lotus Web Content Management 6.1.5 cluster, I was sad to see exceptions in the SystemOut.log of the second node when I accessed WCM content. The errors included: -
Failed to login to repository
Requested Member does not exist.uid=wpsadmin,o=default organization

Once I'd done this, I ran the task as follows: -
and voila, we're good to go.
