Oops, that didn't work - Lotus Connections 2.5 - Perhaps an error message that's just too darned friendly

Things that make me go "Hmmmmmmmmmmmm".

I don't yet have a solution for this, but I'm seeing: -

I've tried applying the 2.5.0.2 cumulative fix pack, but to no avail.

Given that I'm running WAS 6.1.0.29, I figured that updating LC *might* be the solution, as I can't see anything immediately obvious.

For the record, I only have Homepage and Profiles installed, as I'm running this on a fairly low-end VMware image on my Thinkpad, alongside LDAP, DB2 and Portal.

Ah well, I'll crack it ......

More to come ....

Sorted, thanks to a Lotus Connections expert in Dublin ( Mr Kieran R ), the problem is now resolved.

Mr Stupid ( e.g. me ) forgot to run one fairly crucial SQL script - initData.sql - when I *MANUALLY* set up the DB2 databases for the Homepage feature.

This is what I had previously run, on the DB2 server, as db2inst1: -

db2 -tvf profiles/db2/createDb.sql
db2 -tvf profiles/db2/appGrants.sql
db2 -tvf homepage/db2/createDb.sql
db2 -tvf homepage/db2/appGrants.sql

However, I'd missed the fact that I also needed to run: -

db2 -tvf initData.sql

Of course, if I'd used the wizard, I wouldn't have had this problem, but, being a command line junkie, I like to do things the easy (!) way.

Grokking grep

A colleague was tinkering with grep  and, thanks to him, I discovered a bit more about the trusty little utility. I had not really explored ...
