Note for Convergence 2 Patch 3
Any Convergence calendar customization example beginning with Convergence 2 Patch 3 is dependent on at least Calendar Server 7 Update 2 Patch 5.

For requirements specific to Convergence, see the Requirements for Convergence 2.

Convergence Installation Notes

See the Communications Suite Installation Guide for information on installing Convergence.

Running the Convergence Initial Configuration Program in Secure Mode

In some configurations, the Convergence init-config program fails when Convergence uses the secure=true option to run the Application Server asadmin commands. Specifically, the asadmin commands invoked by init-config fail in this situation.

Situation: This issue occurs when the Application Server is configured to run in non-secure mode, and the Convergence init-config program is configured to run the Application Server asadmin commands in secure mode. In the Convergence init-config program, the Secure Administration Server check box is checked by default.

Solution: If you are running Application Server in non-secure mode, when you run the init-config program, uncheck the Secure Administration Server check box in the Application Server: Administration Instance Details panel.

If you are running Application Server asadmin in secure mode, you can accept the defaults when you run init-config.

Convergence should indicate on event when invite has failed

12730121

Login Page's Language Drop Down Menu Shows English Even though the Browser is in a Different Language

Saves the Options/Language setting in a cookie named PREF (expiration 2 years). This cookie PREF is set (if necessary) every time a user logs in or when the user changes the language settings in the Options. When the login page is loaded, it first looks at this cookie to preset the language in the page. If the cookie does not exist, the login page defaults to English. By using this approach, it guarantees the Options/Language settings will be used as the login page setting, thus simplifying the login page and eliminating the need to choose from the language settings pull-down menu.

Known Problems: General and Authentication

GlassFish Enterprise Server 2.1.1 Patch 15 (v2.1 Patch21) (9.1_02 Patch27 with HADB) Causes Errors

SR number: NA
Bug number: NA

There are known problems when Convergence is deployed with GlassFish Enterprise Server 2.1.1 Patch 15 (128643-29/128644-29/128645-29). Therefore, do not to use this particular GlassFish patch. See also GlassFish bug: 13705971 - Recycle of Parametercount is Not Done, which causes Convergence user session corruption.

Beginning with Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server 2.1.1 Patch 16 (v2.1 Patch22) (9.1_02 Patch28 with HADB) (128643-30/128644-30/128645-30), the errors appear to have been fixed.

Configurator does not allow for ISS Proxy Authentication.

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12295290 (SUNBT6955552)

To enable ISS Proxy Authentication with Convergence, run iwcadmin with the following configuration parameters:

iwcadmin -u admin -o ISS.enable -v true
iwcadmin -u admin -o ISS.enablessl -v true  (if SSL is used)
iwcadmin -u admin -o ISS.host -v <FQDN of ISS host>
iwcadmin -u admin -o ISS.port -v <ISS port>
iwcadmin -u admin -o ISS.proxyadminid -v <uid of proxy user>
iwcadmin -u admin -o ISS.proxyadminpwd -v <plaintext password of proxy user>

If ISS Proxy Authentication is enabled in Convergence 1.x and you upgrade to Convergence 2, attachment search will not work until you set the Proxy Authentication user name and password when enabling ISS Proxy Authentication in Convergence 2 as shown in the above table.

Convergence cannot be used with Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0 if VLV indexing is enabled

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12293332 (SUNBT6947126)

VLV indexing causes crashes in Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition 7.0.

Note
With Convergence 2, use Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition 11g Release 1 (11.1.1), Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.x, or 5.x.
Refer to Additional Product Requirements for Convergence 2.

Creating a group saves the help text if the user does not enter any values

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12237920 (SUNBT6702002)

If pop-up windows are blocked in the user's browser, functions such as printing dialog, IM, timeout warning, and navigate away warnings do not work

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12237334 (SUNBT6699051)

From the user's perspective, it appears that these functions do not work. Convergence does not display a dialog telling users to enable pop-ups.

Timeouts are reported in dialogs as formatting errors

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12235184 (SUNBT6691137)

If you take an action such as creating a mail folder and wait until the action times out, the error dialog tells you there was a formatting error in the folder label. It does not say that your action timed out.

Pressing the Tab repeatedly gives usability issues in Create Contact

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12235075 (SUNBT6690719)

When creating an Address Book contact, click the work email field then keep pressing the Tab key. After the Notes field, if you press the Tab key, focus shifts to the Buddy List.

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12233759 (SUNBT6686064)

Known Problems: Configuration

No Known Configuration Problems at this Time.

Known Problems: Mail

While saving a .csv attachment from a Mail message when using Internet Explorer 8, the attachment is automatically saved as an *.xls attachment

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12351452

This scenario only occurs when the mail recipient is reading the message on a PC on which Microsoft Excel is installed and the message has been sent from a PC on which Microsoft Excel is installed. The .csv attachment is marked as Content-type: application/vnd.ms-excel in the message source.

Email subject search does not work when search string contains space

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12297417 (SUNBT6965282)

How search is enabled for Convergence may yield different results. The results returned by an IMAP SEARCH will differ depending on whether or not Messaging Server is configured with service.imap.indexer.enable to use the Indexing and Search Service. The IMAP specification states that a SEARCH operation should ignore white space. However, the search operation by the Indexing and Search Service is done as whole-word searches.

Attachment Search does not work properly with CCJ character set file names

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12275399 (SUNBT6863476)

This issue occurs only when there are 2 or more complete characters of the file name in the search.

On Internet Explorer, if you open a compose window and try to paste a list of addresses into the To: or CC: field that exceeds 4000 characters, the field is populated with blank spaces. If you highlight the field, you can see the addresses

SR number: NA
Bug number: NA

This is a known IE issue. It does not occur with other browsers.

Workaround: You can fix this problem with a registry modification. For details, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/240121

When you perform a mail function that takes time to complete, the dialog buttons that handle the function are not disabled, and the cursor does not change to a wait symbol

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12236181 (SUNBT6694440)

For example, if you select all messages in a folder, the related dialog button should be disabled and the cursor should become a wait symbol until all messages are selected.

An error message inadequate for end users is displayed when the Messaging Server goes down during a mail session in Convergence

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12235940 (SUNBT6693443)

If you are using mail in Convergence and the Messaging Server goes down, a pop-up error message states "Mail Service: connection refused" rather than displaying a user-friendly message such as "A temporary problem has occurred. We'll be back soon," or "Working on your request..."

A message being composed is not auto-saved if the only change was in message priority or receipt status

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12235562 (SUNBT6692400)

If you compose a message and make any change since the message was created or since the last save, the message will be saved automatically at the end of the auto-save period (by default, every five minutes). However, auto-save does not occur if the only change is in message priority or receipt status.

Agenda and invitations week print view shows events in the following week

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12800495

The agenda and invitations week print show events for Tuesday this week - Monday next week. The issue is also evident when there are events only on Monday this week and a print is initiated from Agenda/Invitations view. The print view shows "No items to display." The problem is seen only with the print view and not with the agenda/invitations calendar views.

POP: second time login password dialogue will not show unsaved user account passwords

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12850593

From folder dialog box, new folder creation creates under system folders

SR number: 3-5487263651
Bug number: 12876944

If user wants to create a new folder and set the 'Place a copy in:' option, Convergence creates folders under 'Sent, Trash, Draft folder.' Folder should be created in main folder tree.

Firefox 5 only: Saved draft opens in plain text instead of RTF

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12887902

Known Problems: Calendar

Even though Instant Messaging 9 provides support for event alarms in Calendar Server 7, Convergence does not support this feature.

SR number: NA
Bug number: NA

"Settings for" Label in Privacy Settings is Not Aligned Correctly for Japanese Locales

SR number: NA
Bug number: 13495595

If you login to Convergence with a Japanese locale and click Privacy Settings in Calendar Properties of the Calendar tab, the "Settings for" label is incorrectly aligned. The issue occurs on Firefox and Safari browsers only. On Internet Explorer, the "Settings for" label is correctly aligned.

A user is no longer able to send an invitation to a non-default calendar

SR number: 3-3345530321
Bug number: 12285898 (SUNBT6913955)

This functionality was removed. Users can invite people and resources, but not calendars or non-default calendars to meetings.

Calendar print functionality in daily and weekly views has changed between Convergence 1.x and Convergence 2

SR Number: NA
Bug Number: NA

If you print daily or weekly calendars, they print as an agenda-style format instead of a grid-style format. The agenda-style calendar is better at showing the details of an event, particularly when there are multiple events or overlapping events in a single day.

If you choose to print a month view calendar, it prints in a grid-style format.

Note
You are still able to view daily and weekly calendars in Convergence in both grid-style as well as agenda-style formats.

<, >, &, and " are shown as HTML entities in calendar name tooltips

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12298402 (SUNBT6969741)

If you create a calendar with a name containing special characters (&, ", <, >), the tooltip will display HTML entities when you hover over it.

Cannot Convert Recurring Event to Non-recurring Event

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12298131 (SUNBT6968391)

This issue is found in Calendar Server 7 (Oracle Communications Calendar Server), not in Calendar Server 6 (Oracle Communications Sun Calendar Server).

Anonymous Calendar Access in Calendar Server 7 Requires a minimum of Read Access for Calendar Sharing

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12307415 (SUNBT7016012)

A minimum of Read access for anyone is required when allowing anonymous calendar access on shared calendars in Calendar Server 7. If you do not enable Read access to anyone, you might see the following error when trying to access the calendar URL anonymously: Error 0020: Your account details could not be loaded.

Cannot save an attachment in a recurring task

SR number: 3-5837068171
Bug number: 12298718 (SUNBT6971242)

Unable to save Annual Events when setting recurrence with Advanced checkbox

SR number: 3-3901596101, 3-3937667251, 3-5038395141
Bug number: 12298201 (SUNBT6968766)

Logging in as calmaster might result in DavException "Recipient is on another internal server"

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12292410 (SUNBT6943472)

In Calendar Server 6/Calendar Server 7 co-existence setup, the Calendar Server 7 Administrator LDAP entry must have the davcore.scheduling.localuserattr attribute set appropriately prior to running Convergence Configurator. Otherwise, Configurator will not verify credentials. See 6943472 in the Oracle Communications Calendar Server Release Notes.

CalDAV redirect URL for availability info should always include a port number

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12287958 (SUNBT6925057)

In Calendar Server 6 configuration, the Convergence UI is unable to handle a redirect URL without a port number (default:80).

Workaround: The value for service.wcap.freebusy.redirecturl in ics.conf should always include the port number.

Quick Add Functionality Does Not Work Correctly in non-English languages

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12270149 (SUNBT6840464)

The Convergence calendar module enables you to quickly add and event by using the quick add event functionality. This functionality enables users to create an event based on the description provided in the quick add callout. For example, if the user provides the description 1pm lunch at the Counter in the quick add callout, the event attributes that are assigned to the time, location, and title are 1pm, the Counter, and lunch respectively. However, for non-English locales, the order in which the description is typed might change as the semantics of the language might differ from English. Users are forced to provide the event description in the English language order for the quick add function to work correctly in non-English locales.

If you select a subscribed calendar on which you have limited permissions, you cannot create events or edit your own user-owned calendar

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12256018 (SUNBT6780373)

This issue occurs when you select a calendar to which you have subscribed, when your permissions on the subscribed calendar are limited. When you then try to modify your own calendar by, for example, adding an event or editing event details, you are unable to do so.

In calendar, in the Next 7 Days view, the Refresh button does not work

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12245896 (SUNBT6737224)

If you open the Next 7 Days view in calendar, and an action modifies your calendar, clicking the Refresh button does not display the modification.

A recurring event specified to end "never" actually ends after 60 recurrences

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12222250 (SUNBT6645274)

If you specify that a recurring event end "never," Convergence uses the default value for the number of recurring events, which is 60. You can only find out about this limit by scrolling through your calendar, as Convergence does not indicate the limit.

When you add a new event in month view, using natural language to specify its duration does not yield the correct event duration

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12221257 (SUNBT6641358)

For example, if you add a new event in the Calendar, specify event details such as "Lunch at 1:15 tomorrow for 45 minutes," the event is created as one hour long (1:15 - 2:15) instead of 45 minutes.
Note that if you enter event details using a different format, such as "Lunch tomorrow 1:15 P.M. - 2:00 P.M.," the correct duration is created.

Workaround: Change the length of the event in day or week view, or edit the event.

In the address book, no contact is displayed when the wildcard search value is set to greater than 0

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12225061 (SUNBT6654530)

By default, the value of the ab.pstore.wildcardsearch property is set to 0. This enables the wildcard search function to begin returning results as soon as the end user enters the first character.

The feature does not operate as expected if you set ab.pstore.wildcardsearch to greater than 0. For example, if you set the property to 2, the user must enter two characters before the wildcard search returns results. That is, a value of 2 functions as follows: 2 - entry/displayname=aa*

Workaround: Reset the value of ab.pstore.wildcardsearch to 0.

The avatar properties widget should indicate the file-size limit or image dimension limit that can be uploaded

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12236828 (SUNBT6696906)

By default, a text message should indicate these limits, as in the following example: "You can only upload a file size up to 100KB & image dimension up to 2000 x 2000." Without this warning, users are more likely to try to upload oversized pictures for their avatars that will fail to upload properly.

Bug number: 12247522 (SUNBT6745772)

This issue occurs if you enable customization and perform the steps to add a custom language to Convergence, then log in as a user created in LDAP with a language preference set to the custom language (for example, Arabic). The UI displays text and aligns widgets left-to-right instead of right-to-left.

When adding a new language to Convergence, Convergence hangs if no resources.js file is directly under the allDomain directory

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12247514 (SUNBT6745757)

This issue occurs if you enable customization and perform the steps to add a custom language to Convergence, creating a directory structure as shown in this example:

/iwc_static/c11n/allDomain/nls/
/iwc_static/c11n/allDomain/nls/<new language>/
/iwc_static/c11n/allDomain/nls/<new language>/resources.js

In this situation, Convergence does not load the files; it does not bring up the UI.

Workaround: Add an empty resources.js file directly under the /iwc_static/c11n/allDomain/nls/ directory. Note that you still must create the resources.js file under the /iwc_static/c11n/allDomain/nls/<new language>/ directory. For example:

/iwc_static/c11n/allDomain/nls/
/iwc_static/c11n/allDomain/nls/resources.js
/iwc_static/c11n/allDomain/nls/<new language>/
/iwc_static/c11n/allDomain/nls/<new language>/resources.js

Known Problems: S/MIME

Cannot send signed or encrypted messages if a multiple user certificate is installed on web browser

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12279141 (SUNBT6882555)

When using S/MIME on Windows Vista with JDK6u1.1, the browser hangs for smart card users if the first message in the user's inbox is encrypted

SR number: NA
Bug number: 12256501 (SUNBT6781802)

After the user logs in, as soon as the inbox loads, it tries to decrypt the first message and tries to access the Private key of the user from the smart card. The browser hangs and the user cannot perform any further operations.

    Hi sshenoy,

    for this problem, the Oracle Support told me the opposite, to downgraded from patch 29 to patch 27. I don't know if the new patch 30 resolved this problem ?

    No Issue ID

    GlassFish Enterpise Server 2.1.1 Patch 15 (v2.1 Patch21) (9.1_02 Patch27 with HADB) Causes Errors

    There are known issues when Convergence is deployed with GlassFish Enterprise Server 2.1.1 Patch 15. Therefore, do not to use this particular GlassFish patch.

    Generic Note
    ------------------------
    Benoit;

    I would like to find out if turning off caching worked for the most part - i.e. most of the complaints have gone away. Or if the complaints are slowly returning to their previous volume? This latter would imply that it was the restart of the server that temporarily got rid of the problem.

    Finally, internally we are seeing quite a few problems related to GlassFish patch 29. So, I would ask you to consider backing out that patch and going to patch 27 (128643-27) instead.

    Best regards,

    Oracle Support

    1. Feb 22, 2012

      Benoit,

      The patch numbering is confusing; we are actually referring to the same patch. In other words: the GlassFish patch numbers (128643-29/128644-29/128645-29) are the same as GlassFish Enterpise Server 2.1.1 Patch 15 (v2.1 Patch 21) (9.1_02 Patch 27 with HADB). I will clarify this in the release notes.

      So yes, as Oracle Support suggests, you want to downgrade to the previous version (128643-27/128644-27/128645-27).

      Hope that helps.
      Shami

      1. Feb 24, 2012

        Just a follow-up to the previous reply: beginning with Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server 2.1.1 Patch 16 (v2.1 Patch22) (9.1_02 Patch28 with HADB) (128643-30/128644-30/128645-30), the errors appear to have been fixed.

  2. Feb 25, 2012

    Shami,

    Thank you for clarify the situation with the Sun GlassFish Enterprise Server 2.1.1 patches with Convergence 2.

    Thank you for your reply to my question for patch 128643-30 that appear to fixed some problem with Convergence 2 (Unexpected token, etc.)

    I will not try this right now because here at the Unversity, we are just in mid-term and it's not the time to do experience. I will try this patch later.

    Best regards,

    Benoit
