2019-05-08 08:25:35 GMT <angelborroy> ~later tell AFaust Finally I’ve implemented your approach: when SOLR_USE_SSL env var is not set or is equals to false, then SOLR is using plain HTTP. When SOLR_USE_SSL is true SOLR is using SSL/TLS. However, default ZIP distribution is released with SSL/TLS, so some configuration is required to run it in plain HTTP. Thanks!

2019-05-08 13:50:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Spino> Hi everyone ! I'm trying to connecting to Alfresco through JMX on ACS 5.2.3, i have setted alfresco.jmx.connector.enabled=true inside the alfresco-global.properties and i have used the VM Option -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote to enable JMX Remote, but when i try to connect through JConsole using the JMX url service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://<hostname>:50500/alfresco/jmxrmi and deafult username and
2019-05-08 13:50:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> password, it doesn't work.
2019-05-08 13:51:29 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Spino> then... does anybody knows a deterministic way to configure Alfresco JMX on Alfresco 5.2.x? It seems to be not easy at all... 😅
2019-05-08 13:52:06 GMT <angelborroy> @Spino have you tried official documentation?
2019-05-08 13:52:07 GMT <angelborroy> http://docs.alfresco.com/5.2/tasks/jmx-access.html
2019-05-08 13:52:08 GMT <alfbot> Title:Connecting through JMX | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)
2019-05-08 13:52:55 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Spino> Yes , i followed it step by step but nothing..
2019-05-08 13:53:17 GMT <angelborroy> So you created an “alfresco-jmxrmi.password” file, right?
2019-05-08 13:54:24 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Spino> Yes
2019-05-08 13:57:04 GMT <angelborroy> And you are using controlRole/new_pw to access JMX?
2019-05-08 14:00:34 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Spino> Yes, in fact if i check with netstat, the port 50500 is listening, i have configured the alfresco.jmx.dir with the absolute path of the config folder that contains "alfresco-jmxrmi.password " and "alfresco-jmxrmi.access"
2019-05-08 14:01:32 GMT <angelborroy> Can you try JConsole from “localhost”
2019-05-08 14:01:33 GMT <angelborroy> ?
2019-05-08 14:03:04 GMT <angelborroy> Probably you need to declare your remote host
2019-05-08 14:03:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Spino> ?
2019-05-08 14:03:36 GMT <angelborroy> com.sun.management.jmxremote.host=<YOUR CLIENT IP>
2019-05-08 14:03:47 GMT <angelborroy> com.sun.management.jmxremote.local.only=false

2019-05-08 14:08:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <Spino> Priceless, thank you so much , it works.
2019-05-08 14:08:53 GMT <angelborroy> It’s a common problem with JMX
2019-05-08 14:09:04 GMT <angelborroy> I don’t know why we don’t include that on documentation
2019-05-08 14:09:20 GMT <angelborroy> Can you open a ticket on http://docs.alfresco.com/5.2/tasks/jmx-access.html with your problem?

2019-05-08 14:20:20 GMT <angelborroy> Ok, thanks
2019-05-08 18:53:10 GMT <gdeverlant> greetings
2019-05-08 18:53:25 GMT <gdeverlant> can someone tell me why it is so complicated to install alfresco 6
2019-05-08 18:53:42 GMT <gdeverlant> i followed the tutorial on the web site for windows with tomcat 8
2019-05-08 18:57:11 GMT <gdeverlant> im on windows 10 and i tried 2 times
2019-05-08 18:57:16 GMT <gdeverlant> it fail badly
2019-05-08 19:07:50 GMT <gdeverlant> there is no installer like 5.2 or is there one I missed?
2019-05-08 19:08:26 GMT <alfresco-discord> <douglascrp> gdeverlant, no, there is no installer anymore
2019-05-08 19:09:01 GMT <gdeverlant> it is so unclear the documentation is really bad
2019-05-08 19:09:22 GMT <gdeverlant> why do they write text they could do videos it is easier
2019-05-08 19:13:32 GMT <gdeverlant> did someone achieved the installation on windows
2019-05-08 19:13:36 GMT <gdeverlant> with version 6+
2019-05-08 19:28:16 GMT <gdeverlant> to be honest at least it should be simple
2019-05-08 19:28:50 GMT <gdeverlant> or they could deliver a ready to use naked zip with alfresco and tomcat 8
2019-05-08 19:29:00 GMT <gdeverlant> ready to just launch
2019-05-08 19:41:34 GMT <phaleth> gdeverlant: try docker
2019-05-08 20:13:03 GMT <gdeverlant> any link ?

2019-05-08 21:23:38 GMT <gdeverlant> i even tried with 5.2 installer and it doesnt work
2019-05-08 21:23:54 GMT <gdeverlant> im getting Cannot find Alfresco Repository on this server. (Does this application have access to alfresco-global.properties? Does this application have cross-context permissions?)
2019-05-08 21:28:25 GMT <gdeverlant> oh my bad
2019-05-08 21:28:37 GMT <gdeverlant> 5.2 works
2019-05-08 21:33:10 GMT <gdeverlant> damn i dont have windows 10 pro
2019-05-08 21:33:13 GMT <gdeverlant> so i cant use docker
2019-05-08 22:14:34 GMT <alfresco-discord> <jpotts> I have a customer that wants to use docker-compose in production for an enterprise clustered deployment of 6.0.1
2019-05-08 22:14:49 GMT <alfresco-discord> <jpotts> They have zero interest in Kubernetes and are moving away from AWS
2019-05-08 22:15:08 GMT <alfresco-discord> <jpotts> So this will run in their data center
2019-05-08 22:15:52 GMT <alfresco-discord> <jpotts> The question is this: What do I specify for the alfresco.cluster.interface?
2019-05-08 22:16:31 GMT <alfresco-discord> <jpotts> Oh, I should have also said that the two acs containers will be on different hosts
2019-05-08 22:21:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <jpotts> Maybe "*" will work?
2019-05-08 22:22:27 GMT <xkahn> Is that true?
2019-05-08 22:23:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <jpotts> xkahn: I have run scripts from the JS Console before that ran MUCH longer than 60s
2019-05-08 22:23:20 GMT <xkahn> Right now we have it configured to run only once (the query is simple: PATH:"/app:company_home") but it acts on other files.
2019-05-08 22:23:26 GMT <AFaust> jpotts: Oh yeah, clustering inside Docker without an overlay or Kubernetes-managed network across multiple hosts is "fun"...
2019-05-08 22:23:46 GMT <xkahn> jpotts: ! In the JS console the same thing happens. We're limited to 60 seconds.
2019-05-08 22:24:09 GMT <xkahn> jpotts: I wonder if it's the load balancer proxy we're using
2019-05-08 22:24:24 GMT <xkahn> jpotts: But that wouldn't explain scheduled actions
2019-05-08 22:25:03 GMT <alfresco-discord> <jpotts> AFaust: Yeah, I'm getting that impression. Right now I'm a bit frustrated with Alfresco's stance which seems to be "k8s or you're on your own"
2019-05-08 22:25:43 GMT <AFaust> So "*" for the interface is likely your best option. Apparently, using "host" network mode would also be the easiest with regards to dealing with the Enterprise cluster auto-discovery / self-registration bits, because otherwise I doubt it will work without specifying "initialMembers", as I do not believe Enterprise is capable of handling address translation from Docker internal to external
2019-05-08 22:26:34 GMT <AFaust> I mean from the private to public IPs and back
2019-05-08 22:26:46 GMT <alfresco-discord> <jpotts> AFaust: I'm trying it out right now, I'll report back
2019-05-08 22:27:18 GMT <AFaust> I can definitely say I had my own bit of fun dealing with address translation in my own clustering module...
2019-05-08 22:29:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <jpotts> I think 6 may be the point where all but the largest customers finally get fed up and say F this, it shouldn't be this hard.
2019-05-08 22:30:11 GMT <xkahn> AFaust: jpotts: Do either of you have any ideas why I might be seeing 60 second timeouts for requests? (I can test against individual nodes to see if I get the same limits...)
2019-05-08 22:30:33 GMT <xkahn> But I ASSUME scheduled actions are not run as a request back to the server
2019-05-08 22:33:11 GMT <AFaust> Yeah, 6+ and DBP is all about "we are only listening to what the large, phat customers want from now on"
2019-05-08 22:35:32 GMT <xkahn> AFaust: hmmm... Should be easy to test that.
2019-05-08 22:35:49 GMT <xkahn> AFaust: Oh! We have that version
2019-05-08 22:35:53 GMT <AFaust> (to be fair, I made that enhancement in 2014 or 2015)
2019-05-08 22:35:58 GMT <xkahn> AFaust: and we're getting the timeout issue
2019-05-08 22:36:04 GMT <xkahn> hmmmm
2019-05-08 22:36:06 GMT <AFaust> That should not be the case...
2019-05-08 22:37:05 GMT <AFaust> Make sure you pull 0.6 from Maven Central - don't use the latest release on GitHub
2019-05-08 22:38:51 GMT <AFaust> A scheduled action though always runs on the Repository and should never be affected by any of the Share -> Repository connection timeouts, or any other execution timeouts (provided it does not perform some timeout-based operations on its own)
2019-05-08 22:39:37 GMT <AFaust> Does your scheduled action maybe perform some SOLR queries and suffer from connection timeouts that way?
2019-05-08 22:58:06 GMT <xkahn> AFaust: No, not really.
2019-05-08 22:58:17 GMT <xkahn> The queries should all be quick.
2019-05-08 22:58:40 GMT <xkahn> I'm trying to run some long running scripts in the js console.
2019-05-08 22:58:50 GMT <xkahn> Got stuck trying to get setTimeout to work. :-/
2019-05-08 22:58:58 GMT <xkahn> I'll just do it a different way
2019-05-08 23:07:14 GMT <AFaust> jpotts: Any chance seeing you at the hack-a-thon on Friday, or too busy with projects to join?
2019-05-08 23:24:28 GMT <alfresco-discord> <jpotts> AFaust: I am too busy this Friday. I'm looking forward to seeing what new stuff comes out of it though
