We had a really good demo of i2 yesterday, a couple of IBM'ers came in and walked us through a lot of demos of the products functionality and how it all fits together over a three hour period.  Really interesting stuff that I'm very much looking forward to using.

Thinking of a few useful use-cases for the software at the same time.

Just downloaded the software so time to get on and install it for a bit of sandboxing now!

I'm looking forward to my first real opportunity to play with i2 next week, some enablement training!

Hopefully I'll have some questions or thoughts to share after this.

Is there anybody out there actively using i2 at the moment?

I'm back working on a long-running issue one of our customers is experiencing.  Their Content Manager server has been running at 100% CPU for months on end now.

We've tried rebooting servers in various orders, applying fix packs, bringing up individual servers to see if any other machines are causing an issue, we've even completely reinstalled the Content Manager server having cleared out all traces of the prior install.  Still the issue persists.

Today I'm exporting their Content Store and after that I will be deleting the CS database and creating a new one, so will see if that makes any difference.

Has anybody else had a similar issue in the past?

Ugh... IBM!!! Sort out your website bandwidth!!! Always getting such terrible download speeds which wouldn't be so bad if your software wasn't all so bloody massive!

Those times when you finally raise a support ticket, only to be asked the sort of questions that you've obviously thought of yourself.  Because you're a technical person yourself.  And you can think of all the obvious things, otherwise you wouldn't be calling right?  #FML #SupportDesk

I've just introduced a jobs section, partly because I have a role to advertise so it's very self-serving.  However, please keep this to roles you're recruiting for within your own organisations.  No job agencies please, this should be a useful group for members and not a spam-fest.

If the feed becomes a flood of job adverts then I'll need to review this and remove the section.

Thanks!
