Error “INFO This iFix is not for your current DocsConversion version.” when installing IBM Docs 2.0 CR3 iFix001

In another blog entry I had been asked by Kenneth if it is an expected behaviour, that when installing CR3 iFix001 you get the message “INFO This iFix is not for your current DocsConversion version.” if you installed the Linux version of the Conversion Server.  After checking back with developement this is indeed a defect.  To go around this and also deploy the fix for the conversion server please follow those instructions: 1. Login the server on which DMGR is running, change directory to DMGR_INSTALL_ROOT/config/cells/CELL_NAME/IBMDocs-config, for example 2. In the file conversion-config.json, search “build-info”, and add one line — “ifix_version”:…

Introducing the Visual Update 1 for IBM Connections (Project Periscope)

With the introduction of the IBM Connections Customizer it is now possible to customize the end user interface of IBM Connections 6.0 without having to touch the actual code, since it acts as a proxy between the End Users device and Connections and renders the required changes on the fly. This is a great feature for an on-premises Connections environment. But it is even better for our Connections Cloud, because here we cannot have each customer customize “our” environment by placing files in “our” Connections installation. With the Customizer customers can now even change the UI of Connections Cloud to…
