Documentum 8.1 Release Script Question

Documentum 8.1 Release Script Question

Postby Roman Powidajko » Mon Jul 20, 2015 10:48 am

We are upgrading to Documentum/WebTop 7.2 and require to upgrade the release script from 8.0 to 8.1.
The release script documentation mentions that DFS must be installed beforehand. Currently, the 8.0 script uses DFC, how different is the DFS install?
Thank you.

The Kofax 9.0 install currently has the DFC (6.5) and the release script (8.0) installed. The Kofax release script connects to the DFS (Method Server http://servername:9080) and the available repositories appear!

My new test environment has a Content Server installed (with Method Server).

To test the new release script will the following work...
1. Take a snapshot of the current test Kofax install.
2. Uninstall the 8.0 Kofax Relese script.
3. Uninstall the 6.5 Documentum DFC.
4. Install the 7.1 Documentum DFC.
5. Install the 8.1 Kofax Release script.
6. Setup the release script per batch class.
7. Test......

Thanks.

The Documentum Export Connector 8.x does not require any client side components, like Documentum Foundation Classes, (DFC). Older versions of this Export Connector, (i.e. 7.5), required DFC to be installed at the client.

Documentum Foundation Services, (DFS), is a server side web service implementation. The Export Connector communicates with this service using the DFS API via SOAP protocol.

You will want to install the very latest 8.1 version of this Export Connector, as version 8.0 implemented a version of DFS that did not support larger file uploads.
If they are going to hate you anyway for what you do, then you might as well put forth your best effort.
