So that’s how he did it – Luis Benitez tells all

Our favourite IBM Connections product manager is releasing a series of blog posts on what code and products were used in his Keynote / OGS demo at Connect.

I must admit I was impressed and only yesterday I blogged on my personal blog that I wished we knew more on what products made up the OGS demos.

Great post by Luis, can’t wait to read the rest of the series

ConnCtrl bash script for IBM Connections

My good friend Mr Tim Clark asked me this morning if there was a script available for starting and stopping IBM Connections on Red Hat (RHEL) – I know lots of people do have them, but wasn’t aware of one that was available to the community.

So we wrote one ..

The script has a bunch of variables to allow you to input the path to the WebSphere deployment manager and nodes, and a place to enter the names of your Connections servers.

Please visit Tim’s blog for all the information and to download the script.
