some useful file managing software

Application Designer read only access with Compare Reports

1. ensure that security related tables contains relevant data, during the setup after upgrading the environment. it was identified that object permission were empty in the permission list.This can be resolved by copying from existing environment or demo database the following tables:



2. create new permission list, the fastest way to do this is to perform a clone of existing permission list e.g. ALLPAGES

3. open the newly cloned permission list, click peopletools tab and ensure that application designer access is ticked

4. under application designer, select definition permission and click the read only(all) button

5. under application designer, select tools permission and click read only(all) button

6. save the updated permission list

7. create new role, same as permission list perform clone to existing role

8. open the newly created role, click the permission list tab and add the newly created permission list created in step 6

9. save the newly created role which can be added to user who requires readonly access to application designer.

working with nonVirtualbox environment for PUM

1. Unzip the .ova file to show the contained .ovf and .vmdk files

2. download the OVFTool to convert the ovf to vmx
ovftool -tt=vmx –lax <ova file> <vmx file>

3. OVFTool complained about unsupported devices(like sound card,etc)
so used the <Item ovf:required=”false”> tag for these devices.

4. On trying to upload the .vmx file using vmware standalone convertor
tool, .vmx was missing some critical references to scsi device and the
named .vmdk file – looked at a different server working .vmx file on
hand and substituted a few lines where needed to get the image to
load. Final edited .vmx file looked like listing at page bottom the
below for our setup.
