The following feature was deprecated in a previous release and may be removed in a future release:

  • Access Manager

The following features have been removed from Instant Messaging 9 (deprecation was announced in Instant Messaging 8.2):

  • Instant Messenger Client - The Java client that is used to access the Instant Messaging server has been removed. As a result, the following client features are removed:

    • Moderated Conferences - This feature enabled the moderator to moderate private messages that are sent to conferences.
    • Alerts - This feature enabled you to notify users of time-sensitive information, either in individual messages or as broadcasts to multiple users. You were also able to specify routing of alerts received when offline.
  • Redirect Server - This feature enabled you to balance the load between different servers in a server pool.
  • Communications Channel in Portal Server - This was the channel that was used to launch Instant Messaging in Portal Server.
  • Portal Server Archiving - This feature enabled you to archive chat content in the portal server.

Requirements for Oracle Communications Instant Messaging Server

See Requirements for Communications Suite 7 Update 2 and Requirements for Instant Messaging.

Instant Messaging Installation and Uninstallation Notes

This section contains important information about installing and uninstalling Oracle Communications Instant Messaging Server software. If you are using Sun Java System Access Manager with Instant Messaging, install the Legacy (version 6 style) Access Manager by using the Sun Java Enterprise System installer. This version of Instant Messaging is not compatible with the Realm (version 7 style) Access Manager.

If you use Access Manager to store policies when configuring Instant Messaging, the following policies are created:

  • Ability to administer Instant Messaging and Presence Services
  • Ability to change your own Instant Messaging settings
  • Ability to watch changes on other Instant Messaging users
  • Default Instant Messaging and presence access

Instant Messaging Compatibility Issues

Although the Instant Messenger 8 client might work with Instant Messaging Server 9, it is not supported.

Known Problems in Instant Messaging 9

This section contains a list of current known issues for Instant Messaging 9.

12264906 (SUNBT6817064) RESUBSCRIPTION IS NOT HAPPENING BECAUSE YAHOO USERS ARE NOT GETTING

If you rename a Yahoo contact then remove and readd the Yahoo Transport, the renamed contact reverts to its original name.

12255248 (SUNBT6778222) ISSUES WITH CALENDAR REMINDERS WITH INVITEE

After installing Instant Messaging and configuring with Messaging Server and Calendar Server, creating a new event in Calendar Server and inviting users does not always generate an alert message to invitees.

12300723 (SUNBT6982246) EVENT/TODO REMINDER COMES WITHOUT FORMATTED INFO. WHEN EVENT IS CRE

If you configure Instant Messaging to send a reminder as content type "text/plain," then create a reminder event or todo with an attachment, the reminder arrives on time but the content is unformatted. Also, no attachment is sent.

12301733 (SUNBT6988580) TLS FOR SERVER/MUX CANNOT BE ENABLED WHEN SECCONFIG DIR IS SPECIFIE

Trying to enable TLS with the following commands fails:

./imconfutil set-prop -c /opt/sun/comms/im/config/iim.conf.xml iim_server.secconfigdir=/opt/sun/comms/im/config/certs/
./imconfutil set-prop -c /opt/sun/comms/im/config/iim.conf.xml iim_server.usessl=true iim_server.sslkeystore=example_com.jks iim_server.keystorepasswordfile=sslpassword.conf

Please set the iim_server.secconfigdirectory to the directory where the
Keystore file is found
Or provide the absolute path to the keystore file
example_com.jks is not a valid value for iim_server.sslkeystore
Please set the iim_server.secconfigdirectory to the directory where the
Keystore file is found
Or provide the absolute path to the keystore file
sslpassword.conf is not a valid value for iim_server.keystorepasswordfile.

The command fails as well when specifying the iim_server.secconfigdir property to the Instant Messaging instance directory.

Workaround:

  1. Specify the full path to both the keystore and keystore password file.
  2. Copy the keystore files to the instance directory and specify the relative path.
    The instance directory is recognized as the secconfigdir by default.

12303175 (SUNBT6995649) MSN GATEWAY PORT NO. TO BE CHANGED IN ALTROOT /MULTI-INSTALL SCENAR

When performing a multi-installation or altroot installation, set the MSN gateway port listed under File Transfer Settings (ftJabberPort) to a unique value per installation. The default port is 8010. For each installation, make sure that the port value is different. Failure to do so can cause the MSN gateway to not start correctly.

12303239 (SUNBT6996044) FGBW : IT TAKES SOMETIME FOR THE PRESENCE TO GET UPGATED

When a users log in to the Facebook gateway, their contacts' presence is not immediately seen. This is a limitation of the Facebook Server.

12305842 (SUNBT7009061) NO COMMAND TO GET-DEFAULT-MUX-THREADPOOL,GET-DEFAULT-SERVER-THREADP

When you run the imconfutil -u command to check the supported list of commands, get-default-server-threadpool is listed twice.

12306153 (SUNBT7010220) SHOAL PEER DISCOVERY DOES NOT WORK IF IIM_SERVER.POOL.PEER.DISCOVER

If you configure Instant Messaging on two hosts and enable peer discovery on both (by setting the iim_server.pool.peer.discovery_topic property), the peers fail to join the server pool.

12306417 (SUNBT7011495) SMF SERVICE CREATION USING IMADMIN OR USING THE CONFIGURATOR SHOULD

Use one of the following methods to enable SMF for Instant Messaging 9:

  • Run the Instant Messaging configure script and choose the selection to start the SMF service.
  • Run the imadmin smf-register command. (You must first stop services before running the command.)

When upgrading to Instant Messaging 9, the SMF service is not enabled by default, even if it was enabled in the previous installation. You need to manually run the imadmin smf-register command to enable the SMF service again.

12310076 (SUNBT7031535) SIP USER CANNOT SEE XMPP USER CHAT STATES

When an XMPP user and a SIP user, both of whom have subscribed to each other's presence, start chatting, the XMPP user can see the SIP user's chat states (for example, typing), but the SIP user cannot see the XMPP user's chat states.

12310265 (SUNBT7031960) PUB-SUB: INSTANT NODE CREATION IS NOT SUPPORTED

The current Pub-Sub implementation does not support instant node creation.

12310276 (SUNBT7031977) PUB-SUB:A OWNER COULD NOT SET THE AFFILIATION OF A USER TO "PUBLISH

The current Pub-Sub implementation does not enable an owner to set a user's affiliation to "publish-only."

12621391 YAHOO GW: MULTIPLE SUBSCRIPTION REQUESTS RECEIVED FOR EACH CONTACT DURING LOGIN

When a Yahoo user logs in to the Yahoo gateway, multiple subscription requests are received for each user in the roster. Only one subscription request per contact should be received.

12690950 PUB-SUB : KNOWN ISSUES

The current Pub-Sub implementation does not support the following items:

  • Discover node metadata
  • Receive the last published item
  • Retrieve items for a node
  • Publish an item to a node for access model "roster" and "whitelist"
  • Delete an item
  • Delete a node
  • Purge all node items
  • Delivery of last published item
  • Automatic node creation
  • Payment required options for subscription
  • Anonymous subscriptions
  • Subscription pending
  • Too many subscriptions
  • Configuration required
  • Multiple subscriptions
  • Configure subscription 0ptions
  • Request default subscription configuration options
  • Item publisher
  • Publishing options
  • Collection nodes
  • Manage subscription requests
  • Presence sharer
  • Persistence of nodes and items (created nodes and items are lost after a server restart)
  • Server-to-server communications and server pool

12305156-SERVER NOT TRANSMITTING SUBSCRIPTION REQUESTS FROM THE GATEWAY

Resubcription is not happening because YAHOO users are not getting deleted from Gateway.

12222853

MSN user status "Appear offline" results in messages not being delivered.

12713942 SIP FEDERATION DOES NOT WORK IN SERVERPOOL SETUP

The current SIP federation implementation does not work in a server pool deployment.

12715195 SUBSCRIPTION RECD FROM A CONTACT WHO IS DELETED AFTER LOGGING OUT OF GATEWAY

12306573 (SUNBT7012164) IM_SCHA : COUPLE OF ISSUES WITH IM HA WHEN IM CONFIG FILE NAME CHAN

Some of the Instant Messaging HA agent files still refer to the iim.conf file instead of the new Instant Messaging 9 configuration file, iim.conf.xml.

Workaround:

For a new installation and configuration of Instant Messaging 9 for HA:

  1. Copy the Instant Messaging 9 configuration file iim.conf.xml to the iim.conf file with the same permissions.
    Note: Also copy the iim.conf.xml file to iim.conf after any future configuration changes as cluster uses the iim.conf file.
  2. To use the new 'GatewayConnector' service in HA, update this service configuration with the virtual host name or IP address and port number as follows:

    For example:

    /opt/sun/comms/sbin/imconfutil --config /DATA1/default/config iim_gwc.hostport=192.10.12.11:22222
    

For an upgrade to Instant Messaging 9 for HA:

  1. Upgrade the Instant Messaging software, from Instant Messaging 8 Update 3 to Instant Messaging 9.
  2. After completing the Instant Messaging upgrade, use the previous steps as described for a new Instant Messaging installation.
  3. Make sure that non-active node does not have access to the config directory, as it will be overriding the old configuration.

This section contains a list of current known issues for Instant Messaging Server 9 Patch 1.

14402962 - ENABLING S2S COMMUNICATION MUST SET IIM_SERVER.USEPORT=TRUE

S2S communication (Static pool, Shoal, and Federation) does not work because the iim_server.useport parameter is not set to true.
Workaround:
Set the iim_server.useport to true by using the imconfutil command, if you are using any of the following features, such as "Static pool," "Shoal," or "Federation."

14402678 S2S LISTENER PROPS MUST BE SET WHEN MANUALLY CONFIGURING HTTPBIND COMPONENT

Known Problems in Instant Messaging Server 9 Patch 3

This section contains a list of current known problems for Instant Messaging Server 9 Patch 3.

Server-to-server Whitelisting Is Not Supported after Upgrade from Instant Messaging 8 to Instant Messaging 9

SR number: NA
Bug number: 17155860

The server-to-server coserver configuration is migrated from Instant Messaging 8 to Instant Messaging 9 during an upgrade, even though the coserver-based system of defining whitelists is no longer supported in Instant Messaging 9.

Workaround:

After upgrading from Instant Messaging 8 to Instant Messaging 9, manually remove the server-to-server coserver properties with the following command.

Also, for server-to-server federation to work as previously, set iim_server.federation.policy=CLOSED and
iim_server.federation.exceptions=domain1.com, domain2.com where domain1.com and domain2.com were the whitelisted domains in Instant Messaging 8.

For information on configuring server-to-server federation, see Federating Instant Messaging Server 9 Deployments with External Servers on XMPP or non-XMPP Networks.
