Daily Log for #alfresco

2019-07-08 07:12:41 GMT <CptLuxx> someone online?

2019-07-08 07:13:03 GMT <CptLuxx> i need the alfresco.sh file for 5.2 ... any way i can download it without running the bin?

2019-07-08 07:17:20 GMT <alfresco-discord> <anghelutar> Hi all An update on my question from few days ago, whether sharded solr6 works fine via SSL Answer: yes, it does, provided the right certificates are generated But, one has to be careful about setting the right variable for the keystore type In solr's script solr/bin/solr there is the following section - with a typo in the variable name when adding it to the JAVA_OPTS: if [ -n

2019-07-08 07:17:21 GMT <alfresco-discord> "$SOLR_SSL_KEY_STORE_TYPE" ]; then SOLR_SSL_OPTS+=" -Djavax.net.ssl.keyStoreType=$SOLR_SSL_KEYSTORE_TYPE" fi

2019-07-08 07:20:20 GMT <AFaust> Yeah, typos. Nothing better than playing good old "hide and seek" when debugging an issue...

2019-07-08 07:21:51 GMT <AFaust> CptLuxx: Check the SVN project for the installer: https://svn.alfresco.com/repos/alfresco-open-mirror/alfresco/COMMUNITYTAGS/5.2.g/root/packaging/installer/src/main/resources/bitrock/

2019-07-08 07:21:53 GMT <alfbot> Title:alfresco-open-mirror - Revision 138279: /alfresco/COMMUNITYTAGS/5.2.g/root/packaging/installer/src/main/resources/bitrock (at svn.alfresco.com)

2019-07-08 07:23:13 GMT <CptLuxx> ah

2019-07-08 07:23:30 GMT <CptLuxx> thanks!

2019-07-08 07:23:37 GMT <CptLuxx> i was searching for this but i never used svn...

2019-07-08 07:46:33 GMT <alfbot> angelborroy: Sent 2 weeks, 2 days, 15 hours, and 33 minutes ago: <AFaust> No, that happens when I have accessed the file and then execute the Leave Session action from within the UI.

2019-07-08 13:52:04 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> Hi all

2019-07-08 13:52:25 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> I have an Alfresco Cluster setup & running properly (Platform part and Share part as well)

2019-07-08 13:52:47 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> I can see all members in the HZ Share cluster but there is no Session Continuity

2019-07-08 13:53:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> if I shutdown the tomcat containing the Share I'm currently using, I need to login again

2019-07-08 13:53:19 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> Is that expected?

2019-07-08 13:54:03 GMT <angelborroy> This is what happens when having no cluster

2019-07-08 13:54:09 GMT <angelborroy> So I think that is expected

2019-07-08 13:54:15 GMT <angelborroy> But I’m not sure

2019-07-08 13:54:42 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> What is the Share Hazelcast doing if it's not sharing the session details?

2019-07-08 13:55:16 GMT <angelborroy> cache syncrhonization?

2019-07-08 13:56:39 GMT <angelborroy> https://docs.alfresco.com/5.1/concepts/hazelcast-cluster-share.html

2019-07-08 13:56:40 GMT <alfbot> Title:Configuring Hazelcast between Share instances | Alfresco Documentation (at docs.alfresco.com)

2019-07-08 13:56:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> It does that yes

2019-07-08 13:57:09 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> I looked at Tomcat Clustering to be able to have the session replicated between the Tomcat

2019-07-08 13:57:23 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> I'm almost there but there is still something not working exactl

2019-07-08 13:59:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> From my LB URL, I have the automatic failover with session but only if I login manually first to the 2nd node it will failover to

2019-07-08 14:00:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> if I don't, my session isn't kept, if I do, then I don't need to login and I can continue to work on the 2nd node

2019-07-08 14:47:07 GMT <alfresco-discord> <LuisColorado> Someone may correct me here, but Alfresco/Hazelcast is not smart enough to transfer the session from one node to another (hence the need to enable sticky sessions in the load balancer.) If one node fails, the user will lose the session and will have to login again.

2019-07-08 14:49:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <LuisColorado> In Alfresco's implementation, the purpose of HZ is to propagate the caches across the clusters, but not the sessions.

2019-07-08 14:49:27 GMT <alfresco-discord> <LuisColorado> But feel free to correct me if you have observed otherwise.

2019-07-08 14:49:52 GMT <angelborroy> Yep, I think the same, but I didn’t read the source code

2019-07-08 14:51:14 GMT <alfresco-discord> <LuisColorado> Hola Angel! I hope the heat was merciful with you last week.

2019-07-08 14:52:39 GMT <alfresco-discord> <LuisColorado> I hear that air conditioning is not so prevalent in northern Europe as in the US, but I would think that most home have A/C in most of Spain.

2019-07-08 14:52:59 GMT <angelborroy> We all have A/C at home...

2019-07-08 14:53:08 GMT <angelborroy> … but I was on holidays last week ;-)

2019-07-08 20:33:08 GMT <AFaust> MorganP, angelborroy, LuisColorado: Alfresco Enterprise / Hazelcast does not do HTTP session replication at all, so if your authentication relies on HTTP sessions (password-based login or NTLMv1 SSO), then Enterprise clustering cannot provide transparent failover.
