Unable to change R_VERSION_LABEL using DFC

Until Documentum Foundation Classes version 22.4 using Java 17.5 it’s not possible using DFC to change/append to the R_VERSION_LABEL (and several other attributes) even as an superuser/administrator.

The only way to solve this is to go back to Java version 11.16.x.x or do an SQL injection into the DB.

I assume this is a bug in DFC but it seems like Opentext is closing the options for changing attributes in Documentum using DFC so it’s only internally in the Content Server you can do it like in lifecycle action, workflow etc.

Is it good or bad, I don’t know.

As a implementer in our company it’s a problem, as we don’t want complete control over all attributes and objects but want to define own way of security.

Security management is a heavy burden on someone who don’t need it.

I have been around IT for some time and one thing I have learned is: Have security on whats important!

Else you will manage yourself to death.

New Webhosting

I have shifted to a new webhosting provider.

The old one increased the price 4 times, so it goodbye and hello

First impression is it seems the performance of is much faster.

I like their control panel, it’s easy to use and there is lots of apps to install.

The transfer went smooth except I forgot to change the name server and had to create a support incident.

They were nice even when I complained that things wasn’t working and I had paid them to move the Web site.

They pointed out to me that I haven’t read the instructions and the mails they had send to me. During the move they didn’t change the name server because then my current Website would stop working and I should do it myself when I was ready to switch over to them.

They showed me how to change the name server and everything is working fine now.

It nice to know that the support is working when you need it.

We are up to a good start!
