IBM DB2 Content Manager 8.5 Export Connector

Hi

Current Kofax CM Export supports CM 8.3-8.4 but not 8.5. I have already taken this discussion with local kofax rep. and support but wanted to ask whether someone (partner/specialists) has found some solution?

Does existing export connector work with 8.5 eventhoug it's not officially supported?

All help welcome :)
Sami

It's worth a try. Usually APIs do not change significantly with minor versions so you have a good chance of using 8.5.

We are in the process of upgrading from 8.4.3 to 8.5 also. We consulted with a vendor about the upgrade and Kofax. Below is their reply.

First, yes, the existing connector can export to CM 8.5, but as noted in the table you copied below, it uses the II4C (Information Integrator) 8.4.3 API (which go out of support along with CM 8.4.x). So it does function, but uses a technically unsupported API layer to communicate. The patch I’m referring to isn’t listed on the web site, but we got it from Kofax support. The patched connector supports import to CM 8.5 using the CM 8.5 APIs… so that all the components in the chain would be fully under support from IBM.

So, sounds like there is some kind of patch available from Kofax.

We are using Kofax 10 with CM 8.5. our kofax server has the CM 8.5 admin tool installed - which provides the necessary connection for the release script.
