2018-03-12 07:09:57 GMT <digicat> morning all

2018-03-12 07:13:30 GMT <MorganP> morning guys

2018-03-12 07:35:57 GMT <yreg> Morning everyone !

2018-03-12 07:36:21 GMT <yreg> hello digicat MorganP !

2018-03-12 07:36:44 GMT <MorganP> Hi yreg

2018-03-12 07:36:51 GMT <digicat> hi yreg

2018-03-12 07:38:43 GMT <kkore> Help:How to create the new share header with menus??

2018-03-12 07:40:30 GMT <yreg> kkore, this doc page should provide you with a good intro to targeting the header for extensions with surf/aikau : https://docs.alfresco.com/5.1/tasks/dev-extensions-share-tutorials-custom-share-header-menu.html

2018-03-12 07:40:31 GMT <alfbot> Title: Customizing the Share header menu (Aikau) | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2018-03-12 07:42:11 GMT <yreg> kkore, it is usually good practice to search for your topic in the documentation / community.alfresco.com / google before asking your question on IRC

2018-03-12 07:42:33 GMT <kkore> yreg,alfBot: that is for already existing header

2018-03-12 07:48:32 GMT <twen> hello

2018-03-12 10:10:03 GMT <ayushi> I am exploring the addon GitHub - fegorama/alfviral: Alfresco Virus Alert

2018-03-12 10:10:12 GMT <ayushi> I am using the COMMAND mode to scan the files for virus.I have the following configuration in alfviral.properties file.

2018-03-12 10:10:29 GMT <ayushi> alfviral.mode=COMMAND

2018-03-12 10:10:37 GMT <ayushi> alfviral.command.exec=/usr/bin/clamscan

2018-03-12 10:10:45 GMT <ayushi> When the following code is executed

2018-03-12 10:11:54 GMT <ayushi> https://pastebin.com/6ngjDU2u

2018-03-12 10:11:55 GMT <alfbot> Title: ProcessBuilder pb = new ProcessBuilder(this.command); Process process = pb.star - Pastebin.com (at pastebin.com)

2018-03-12 10:12:07 GMT <ayushi> and uploaded a file of mimetype application/x-dosexec,I got the following logs

2018-03-12 10:12:19 GMT <ayushi> 2018-03-07 19:12:38,753 DEBUG com.fegor.alfresco.services.AntivirusServiceImpl: [Type: application/x-dosexec] com.fegor.alfresco.services.AntivirusServiceImpl: [Mode: COMMAND]

2018-03-12 10:12:30 GMT <ayushi> 2018-03-07 19:12:38,753 DEBUG [security.antivirus.CommandScan] [http-apr-8080-exec-10] ++++++the value of res is++++++++127

2018-03-12 10:12:39 GMT <ayushi> So,when I have done a little bit of googling,I have understood that 127 is a special exit code which means that the command is not found.

2018-03-12 10:12:48 GMT <ayushi> I am surprised that logs are showing that the command is not found because when I have directly run the clamscan on a file,it is working perfectly and showing that the file is infected if the file is infected and clean if the file is not infected.

2018-03-12 10:15:14 GMT <ayushi> see the command running here

2018-03-12 10:16:36 GMT <ayushi> can anyone tell me why it is showing that the command is not available although it is working perfectly manually

2018-03-12 11:55:03 GMT <kkore> in share header menus, what is targetUrl: "console/admin-console/trashcan".Here targeturl is not page url ??

2018-03-12 12:12:18 GMT <AFaust> kkore: targetUrl is dependent on the configured URL type. In the case you mentioned it is a page URL (dynamially prefixed with /share/page/

2018-03-12 12:51:14 GMT <kkore> AFaust: My page url is /simple-page and I mentioned in targetUrl like this targetUrl: "simple-page".If I hit that dropdown then facing error like Something's wrong with this page...

2018-03-12 12:52:18 GMT <jri> Hi all, is there something wrong with https://www.alfresco.com/google-auth-return.html ?

2018-03-12 12:52:45 GMT <jri> I've a 403 Forbidden when I'm trying to use Google Docs integration

2018-03-12 12:54:21 GMT <angelborroy> I reported this some time ago https://github.com/Alfresco/google-docs/issues/7

2018-03-12 12:54:22 GMT <alfbot> Title: oAuth token is sent to alfresco.com · Issue #7 · Alfresco/google-docs · GitHub (at github.com)

2018-03-12 12:54:52 GMT <jri> ah thanks @angelborroy !

2018-03-12 12:55:01 GMT <jri> I'll follow it

2018-03-12 12:55:47 GMT <angelborroy> You can bypass Alfresco server

2018-03-12 12:56:04 GMT <angelborroy> it looks like they have stop the proxy now

2018-03-12 13:41:59 GMT <kkore> AFaust: page is showing now it's missing aikau url type hdp/ws/simple-page thanks you

2018-03-12 13:52:47 GMT <douglascrp> morning guys

2018-03-12 13:53:03 GMT <douglascrp> just a quick question on alternatives to s3 to keep backup files

2018-03-12 13:53:14 GMT <douglascrp> do you use any alternative service?

2018-03-12 13:53:27 GMT <douglascrp> I know about ovh

2018-03-12 13:53:42 GMT <douglascrp> we are using it already for some projects, but I would like to know more options

2018-03-12 14:42:51 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, OVH is cheap but they had quite few incidents recently

2018-03-12 14:42:58 GMT <yreg> and a lot of data was lost

2018-03-12 14:43:08 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, really? I was not aware of that

2018-03-12 14:43:11 GMT <yreg> even those with SLA suffered from major incidents

2018-03-12 14:43:18 GMT <douglascrp> wow, that is critical

2018-03-12 14:43:41 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, links, please?

2018-03-12 14:44:07 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, I am not saying you should not use their services, just do not rely on it being the only backup

2018-03-12 14:44:08 GMT <douglascrp> I am not looking at prince only

2018-03-12 14:44:15 GMT <douglascrp> yes, I understand that

2018-03-12 14:44:23 GMT <yreg> will have to look that up

2018-03-12 14:44:27 GMT <douglascrp> no need

2018-03-12 14:44:30 GMT <douglascrp> I can search here

2018-03-12 14:44:37 GMT <douglascrp> it was just in the case you had it easy

2018-03-12 14:44:40 GMT <douglascrp> don't worry

2018-03-12 14:45:27 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, just googled OVH data loss, and there was already few results on the first page

2018-03-12 14:45:38 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, perfecty

2018-03-12 14:45:44 GMT <douglascrp> *perfect

2018-03-12 14:46:06 GMT <yreg> even though it is clear that they tried to make those results go down to pages >1

2018-03-12 14:48:43 GMT <yreg> douglascrp, but I guess hardware is always subject to failure whatever hosting provider you opt for...

2018-03-12 14:49:07 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, indeed

2018-03-12 14:49:35 GMT <yreg> it just happens that OVH got its reputation in the mud because of a bit too many incidents across a relatively short timespan

2018-03-12 14:56:48 GMT <douglascrp> yreg, tks for the information

2018-03-12 15:28:18 GMT <hi-ko> Since Alfresco's announcement for vers. 6 we got several requests to migrate content out of Alfresco EE (or at least to CE). I'm wondering if this is really necessary. Isn't it possible to run Alfresco EE after subscription lifetime or is it really going into R/O mode?

2018-03-12 15:30:49 GMT <fcorti> Alfresco EE will go into a real R/O mode, after the licence will expire.

2018-03-12 15:30:53 GMT <AFaust> It is really going into RO mode...

2018-03-12 15:31:37 GMT <AFaust> But it should be possible to "downgrade" it to CE by fiddling with a few nodes in the repository and updating to the next major CE version...

2018-03-12 15:31:38 GMT <hi-ko> ouh - one upon a time this was different ...

2018-03-12 15:32:00 GMT <AFaust> With the old license model, yes

2018-03-12 15:32:29 GMT <hi-ko> AFaust: we are pretty aware about the procedure to downgrade but I thought we could tell these componies just to kees the systems as they are ...

2018-03-12 15:35:54 GMT <hi-ko> I'm wondering if this is compatible with german law in case a german partner is involved - but anyway: thanks for the prompt feedback.

2018-03-12 15:35:55 GMT <AFaust> Well - technically you could.... it's just a bunch if Java classes, and the license check is not really that sophisticated. It's just dark-grey to black-ish when it comes to complying with licensing terms to continue using "as-is" without renewing the subscription...

2018-03-12 15:36:43 GMT <Loftux> AFaust: hi-ko: how can a repo be read only if you only run CE code? I understand that it will be as long as you still have Enterprise code, but once you switch to the CE code with same or higher schema number it should work?

2018-03-12 15:37:03 GMT <AFaust> For the old customers it would definitely not be compatible with German law, and for them there was still the rule in place that they could get an eternal license after ending their subscription when I left the Enterprise partner...

2018-03-12 15:37:04 GMT <hi-ko> AFaust: I would prefer the clean way if really required: migrate to CE

2018-03-12 15:37:24 GMT <Loftux> Or you meant that they continue Enterprise after expiry?

2018-03-12 15:37:32 GMT <AFaust> I believe everyone here would prefer "the clean way"...

2018-03-12 15:37:37 GMT <hi-ko> Loftux: You can't just replace EE with CE binaries and restart

2018-03-12 15:38:43 GMT <AFaust> With regards to the "old customer rule": This basically applies to customers that had an active subscription before the license model change in July 2014 (or so)

2018-03-12 15:38:51 GMT <hi-ko> Loftux: yes. It was possible years ago to run the same version unlimited even after subcription ended.

2018-03-12 15:40:21 GMT <Loftux> hi-ko: Have to look into that, is it because of additional data models? Different db tables?

2018-03-12 15:42:33 GMT <Loftux> Interesting stuff, have to go, will read chat logs later

2018-03-12 15:42:53 GMT <hi-ko> Loftux: it depends on the version. At least different schema versions. Additionally there is some edition/version specific stuff (encrypted) in node(s).

2018-03-12 17:01:00 GMT <naph-W> AFaust, is it OK if I PM you?

2018-03-12 17:01:38 GMT <AFaust> Always depends on the question... Go ahead and PM me to find out ;)
