Installing Ultimus Adaptive BPM Suite 8.2

Prerequisites:

The computer that will host Ultimus BPM Server must meet the following requirements:

CPU: Intel Pentium III or IV, 1.4 GHz or faster
RAM: 4 GB or more (3GB)
HD: 100 GB (20 GB)
Display (Suite): SVGA 1024×768 min)
SQL Server 2005 SP2

I’ve tested the installation on a Virtual Machine (VMWare) with these specifications:

CPU: AMD Opteron 880 2.4 Ghz (1 CPU)
RAM: 3 GB
HD: C: 10 GB, D: 20 GB (C: Operating System, D: Applications and Database)
Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition Service Pack 2

Windows Services and Components Configuration:

  • Internet Information Services (IIS) and Component Services (COM+)
  • Create a Windows Account for Ultimus Services. If you are on a Domain this account must be part of the Domain.

Important Notes:
If Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 or Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and Ultimus Suite will be installed on the same computer it is recommended that Ultimus is installed first, then install SharePoint. Otherwise SharePoint will not function properly and to repair it you must go to Start -> Administrative Tools -> SharePoint Product and Technologies Configuration Wizard.

Installation Order:
1. Operating System
2. IIS and COM+ Enabled (Add Application Role)
3. Go for Service Pack 2
4. Internet Explorer 8
5. Net Framework 3.5 with SP1
6. SQL Server 2005 Standard and SP2

Jolicloud

Definitively one of the very best advantages of the Linux operating systems it’s the specialized markets that are created. Jolicloud seems at least on their site to be one of the promising Linux for netbooks with an excellent support for the current configurations. I have to test it some weekend with a lot of free time. I’m using the Ubuntu desktop version, and it’s very pleasant and responsive but I’ll give a try to the “atom optimized” versions when I can.

Change MS SQL Server 2005 Windows Server Name

Yesterday I change my development computer name at work when adding to the corporate domain, then I had to update the new SQL Server 2005 default instance to SP3 and it does not work, complaining that can’t find ‘oldname’ server name.

I found a solution here thanks to Nick Berardi.

These was his steps (I just add one verification select statement)

— you’ll see your old name here
sp_helpserver
select @@servername
select * from sysservers

— I add the , ‘droplogins’ with the hope that fix te OLDNAME\ASP and so on
— accounts and schemas (doesn’t work, sorry)
sp_dropserver ‘oldname’, ‘droplogins’
sp_addserver ‘newname’,’local’

— then restart services (from console or services.msc
net stop mssqlserver
net start mssqlserver

— finaly check your changes
sp_helpserver
select @@servername
select * from sysservers

Then you have to change the Login accounts (and of course you have to rename some windows local groups)

to change the name of logins in SQL Server: (check here for reference)
ALTER LOGIN [OLDNAME\ASPNET] WITH NAME = [NEWNAME\ASPNET] and so on.

And then I found that I had to change the DEFAULT SCHEMAS also, so if you want to finish that way you can try that and find the registry keys, and so.

I my case I drop that solution and uninstall / install a fresh new database (’cause I had the advantage that my SQL Server was new anyway)

Intel 915GM Graphics Driver on Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty

I’ve got an old Compaq nc6220 Laptop and recently I had installed Ubuntu Jaunty. First all was working OK including Graphics, I don’t had any problem with advanced effects. But then automatic updates and no more advanced Graphics.

It seems that something screw up the xorg.conf and set all to Defaults, if this happens to you then you have to check if you have the correct drivers already installed:

aptitude show xserver-xorg-video-intel

if not install it…

then you have to add/change Driver to “intel”

/etc/X11/xorg.conf
