Component Pack 6.0.0.6 has been released

Just in time for Social Connections 14 in Berlin the Component Pack 6.0.0.6 has been released (and yes, it’s a coincident, but certainly helping me on my session on this release). Releasing it was a major step as it now removes the hard wires to IBM Cloud private. It is now more open allowing you to use a management platform of choice, while of course still being able to be used with IBM Cloud private, if your company is using it already for other solutions as well. For those who are wondering what the Component Pack is – this is…

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”:…
