Configuring IBM CM8 Connector

eViewer server connector using IBM Java CM8 beans would search for “cmbicmsrvs.ini” and other supporting “.INI” files which are deployed with the IBM Content Manager 8 pClient/eClient or ICN installation.
Step 1: The path to the connectors folder needs to be pointed within eViewer server component deployment.

Step 2: The “Connectors” folder consists of multiple files for configuration settings of IBM CM8 with eViewer 7. IBM CM8 reads the file “cmbicmsrvs.ini” at runtime.

Step 3: Go to the eViewer 7 application server folder, and locate the property file named cmbcmenv.properties. Open the file in an editor application.

Step 4: The cmbcmenv.properties file contains the concrete path of the “connectors” folder for making the connection between the CM8 application with eViewer 7.

Step 5: Set the values in the application property file for making connection with IBM CM8 and save.
