Using WebSphere Portal Express Content Libraries on WebSphere Portal Enable/Extend

In scenarios where WCM has been installed as part of a WebSphere Portal Enable / Extend implementation, these two useful content libraries are on-disk but not configured/available for use.


They can be configured using the commands: -

./ConfigEngine.sh configure-express -DPortalAdminPwd=passw0rd -DWasPassword=passw0rd
./ConfigEngine.sh action-express-memberfixer -DPortalAdminPwd=passw0rd -DWasPassword=passw0rd


( the latter command being run once the file: -

/opt/IBM/WebSphere/wp_profile/PortalServer/wcm/shared/app/config/wcmservices/MemberFixerModule.properties file

has been updated to reflect the correct portal administration user name ).

which provides these two new WCM libraries: -

Internet Web Content 6.1.0
Intranet Web Content 6.1.0


It's then necessary to test for membership problems etc. using MemberFixer via the following URL: -

http://portaldemo.uk.ibm.com:10040/wps/wcm/connect?MOD=MemberFixer&Library=Internet Web Content 6.1.0

which returns: -

...

and: -

http://portaldemo.uk.ibm.com:10040/wps/wcm/connect?MOD=MemberFixer&Library=Intranet Web Content 6.1.0

which returns

...
IWKCW1045X: SUMMARY INFORMATION
Library processed: Intranet Web Content 6.1.0
IWKCW1046X: Items Processed: 108

IWKCW1049X: Virtual Members requiring Update: 0
Errors Detected: 0
IWKCW1050X: Non-existent Members that have alternate Distinguished Names available: 6.

...

Given that these are non-existent members, we can remove them using the &fix=true and &alt_dn=remove commands: -

http://portaldemo.uk.ibm.com:10040/wps/wcm/connect?MOD=MemberFixer&Library=Intranet Web Content 6.1.0&fix=true&alt_dn=remove

This returns: -

...
IWKCW1045X: SUMMARY INFORMATION

IWKCW1047X: Items Updated and Saved: 2

IWKCW1048X: Member References requiring Update: 0
IWKCW1049X: Virtual Members requiring Update: 0
Errors Detected: 0

IWKPL1368X: Utility completed.

...

To be sure, we re-run the MemberFixer query, which now returns: -
...
IWKCW1045X: SUMMARY INFORMATION

...

Life is good ...
