Connections and Sametime Proxy Server 8.5.2 IFR1 fix OBEN-8SDLGS – RECALLED

I just got a mail from IBM support on the Sametime Proxy Server 8.5.2 IFR1 fix OBEN-8SDLGS that is mandatory for awareness between Connections 3.0.1 FP1 and Sametime.  It appears this HF was recalled (not sure what he exact problem is) which explains why I have not been able to get awareness to work with Connections – no mater what I do.

That there is no updated, specific documentation for Connections and ST awareness is not a good sign either but that is why I opened a PMR with IBM when I could just not get awareness to work correctly – and here I am a week later and still nothing to show for my efforts .

I will blog again once I hear back from IBM and a new ST HF is released.

    • Not fair – makes me cry about the nights we ave wasted … Which version of ST do you have deployed?


      • 8.5.2 IFR1 and OBEN-8SDLGS. But I use the proxy server url for lconnProxySvcUrl in uiextensions-config.xml and not edge server url.


      • We actually use the same setup, no proxy server for Connections. however, we have SPNEGO in the environment which is why I think things are not working correctly – there seems to be an issue how ST recognizes the LTPA token name of a user when the session is passed along …. we are working through it an inch at a time.
