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”:…

IBM Connections Docs 2.0 CR3 has been released

Today IBM Docs 2.0 CR3 has hit FixCentral! Aside from fixes the two biggest things in my point of view are: Support for the Conversion Server on Linux: This way you can know deploy all of Docs one platform of your choice: Windows or Linux. No need for a mandatory Windows server at customers, that run a Linux only strategy. Important note: currently the Linux Conversion Server does not, yet, support the Graphical Installer. So if you are planning on deploying using it on Linux, install all needed components except the Conversion server first in version 2.0, then upgrade them…
