  • Hello, we have problems with the client connections since the update 4.0.8.4. Have you found a new client for win/osx in the package?

  • Hi Seloro,

    do the clients give the error message that the server is not a vibe server? If so, then the issue is a ReST endpoint. If you go to the URL

    <your vibe server>/rest/release_info/ 

    you can see an XML element "product_name". This will show "OpenText Vibe". The Desktop client expects "Micro Focus Vibe" or "Novell Vibe".

    I have done some code digging and found taht the server until 4.0.8.3 supports older Desktop Clients by using the property "product.name.legacy" given in ssf-additional.properties. Since 4.0.8.4 the rest-lib uses "product.name", which does not match the expectations of the desktop client.

    So to fight the symptom if you positively have to (at your own risk, of course Wink) you can go to ssf-ext.properties (the admin documentation shows you how to find it) and change the "product.name" property back to "Micro Focus Vibe". We have done some quick testing and have not seen issues coming from that change, but that does by no means say there can be none.

    I think preferrably we should either get a new desktop client (there are other issues I have with the current one, so that would be good), or the release-info endpoint should use the legacy-property again.

    HTH!
