Monitor database activity for application users with Guardium and WebSphere Application Server

Certain audit requirements mandate that specific database activity can be traced
back to the user who is responsible for the specific activity. This is especially challenging in
application scenarios where the pooled database connections are used and the application itself is responsible for authentication and authorization.
This article presents a generic approach for WebSphere Application Server applications that enables
database activity monitoring solutions like InfoSphere Guardium to reliably assign the application user to
the database activity without requiring changes to the respective applications.

Test drive SSO

This article shows you how to set up Single Sign On (SSO) on the IBM i
platform. SSO allows you to sign on to your primary workstation and then
access other systems and applications without having to sign on again. You’ll
learn how to set up all the required software and how to verify each step has
completed properly before continuing to the next. Soon you’ll be using 5250
Emulation, NetServer, IBM System i Navigator, IBM WebSphere® Application
Server and the Java™ Toolbox to access your IBM i system without having to
sign on to each. Please note that there are several different components that
all have to work together, so the time required to implement SSO will depend
on how comfortable you are with each of the components, but generally expect
to spend several days.

Moving WSS sites to a new SharePoint 2010 Foundation server

This existing question helps but it doesn’t answer all my questions.

I have WSS 3 running on Server1 (Server 2003) and its database is DBServer1 (SQL 2008). I have installed SharePoint 2010 Foundation on Server2 (Server 2008) with databases on DBServer2 (SQL 2008 R2).

SP 2010 Foundation is up and running ok and it already has one newly created Web Application. Now my goal is to copy all sites from Server1/DBServer1 to Server2/DBServer2 (and eventually retire Server1/DBServer1).

Could you please help me with a step-by-step list on how to accomplish this?

Thank you!

TAMeb and portals: Single sign-on concepts and considerations

The prevalence of portal products introduces interesting challenges to IT architects
requiring a single sign-on (SSO) solution that incorporates their enterprise portal and the enterprise
applications. One such challenge is determining the method of sign-on to both the portal and the
portal-managed content where access to enterprise applications is via an authenticating reverse proxy,
such as Tivoli Access Manager WebSEAL. This article outlines the architecture and concepts involved in
performing single sign-on from the browser, through the portal to the enterprise applications
