Library Widget cannot be added / Filenet
it`s been a while … I was on parental leave for 2 months. I became father for the third time 😉
But as you can imagine also during my time being away from work IBM software did not stop challenging us. This time we had to deal with another Filenet problem that the libraries widget could not be added to a Community (existing libraries were functional):
If you try to add the widget you see the following error in the log:
The user or group with ID $IC-T-I-a and security ID S-1-98-759384356-759770452-50331745 was not found in the domain ICDomain
Okay… Group ID… from LDAP. Strange…
I was in contact with Christoph Stoettner some weeks ago who had exactly the same problem. He was able to workaround this issue by creating a group with the name “$IC-T-I-a” in the LDAP. This did not work in my environment.
We ended up in opening a PMR and then after some time the problem was found:
"FNCS is not handling the ID $IC-T-I-a correctly -- it doesn't convert it from a waltz ID and, therefore, CE can't look it up."
As you may know, you need to update the waltz and sonata jars manually after applying CR2 (–> described here – section 3.4.10) . Well I`m sure we did that after installing CR2. But after that we installed IBM Docs with the CMIS component. I have the feeling that this updat overwrites the waltz / sonata jars (I cannot prove it right now 😉 – it is just a guess). After adding the updated jars again to the “Filenet Content Engine application” everything started working!
In order not to run into this trouble (in case you`ve applied IC5 CR2) you need to find the following Waltz / Sonata versions displayed (https://SERVERNAME/FileNet/Engine):
Hope this helps someone of you outside there
