18 months ago EMC released an extremely buggy version of Documentum Content Server intended for development purposes, some of ECN members perfectly described the situation with it:
and EMC’s reaction for such critics was extremely eloquent (I do believe that nobody likes critics, but ignoring real problems perfectly describes your respectfulness to the customers):
Three weeks ago new version of Developer Edition got appeared on EMC’s ftp server:
What we should expect from new version?
- Networking issues are still not resolved (it is weird because I already mentioned a good receipt for that – it also must be accomplished by following shell scenario:
cd /etc/udev/rules.d rm -f 70-persistent-net.rules rm -f 75-persistent-net-generator.rules echo "# " > 75-persistent-net-generator.rules
- EMC decided to use weird lockbox feature, quote from readme file:
4. Run dm_crypto_create and dm_crypto_boot utilities to enable Lockbox.
4.1 Execute dm_crypto_create utility as below:
dm_crypto_create -lockbox lockbox.lb -lockboxpassphrase Password@123 -keyname
aek.key -passphrase Password@123 -check
4.2 Run dm_crypto_boot utility as below:
Provide the key store passphrase as “Password@123” when prompted.
, i.e. now you will need to run
dm_crypto_boot -all -lockbox lockbox.lb \ -lockboxpassphrase Password@123 -passphrase Password@123
upon every reboot
- xPlore still does not work:
- there is still no reliable installer
- and the real gem is EMC disclosed their regression tests (check /opt/Suites directory) – now you can get a real progress on developer edition 🙂
