Important Notes

This section describes limitation, restrictions, and other important information that applies to this release of Cisco WebEx Social.

Although the CAS tab appears in the Account Settings > Portal > Settings > Authentication window, Cisco WebEx Social does not support Central Authentication Service (CAS) and the fields in this tab are not used.

When using Show & Share release 5.3 with Cisco WebEx Social, do not install Show & Share patch1.

If SSO is enabled in your network, make sure that the Enable SSO box in the Notifier area of the Configuration window in the Director is checked. This configuration ensures that user accounts are not locked if a password lockout policy is configured in your Active Directory.

In some cases, the auto-generated e-mail aliases for Communities and Discussion Forum Categories are not generated when upgrading from Quad 2.5(2) to Cisco WebEx Social. To work around this issue, contact the Cisco Technical Assistance Center TAC to obtain an updated migration script. For more information, use the Bug Toolkit to access the defect number CSCuc00380 (see the "Using the Bug Toolkit" section).

Preventing community owners from binding discussion categories to mailing lists—In earlier releases of Cisco WebEx Social, community owners and community administrators were allowed to bind discussion categories to mailing lists by default. In release 3.1, this feature can be enabled or disabled by using the following property. Set this property to true to disable the mailing list binding feature for community owners and community administrators. This way, only the Cisco WebEx Social Administrator is able to create discussion category to mailing list bindings.

communities.mailinglists.ui.adminonly

For information about how to set advanced portal properties, see the "Advanced Portal Properties" section in Cisco WebEx Social Administration Guide.

Disabling outbound email notifications to mailing lists—By default, Cisco WebEx Social sends email notifications to mailing lists each time a new discussion is created in the category. You can enable or disable this feature by using the following property. Set this property to false to disable the outbound notifications for all communities in Cisco WebEx Social.

outbound.email.mailinglists.enabled

For information about how to set advanced portal properties, see the "Advanced Portal Properties" section in the Cisco WebEx Social Administration Guide.

Installation and Upgrade Notes

This section provides important information that you should review before you install or upgrade Cisco WebEx Social.

When you perform the procedure in the "Installing Cisco WebEx Social 3.1" section in Cisco WebEx Social Installation and Upgrade Guide, Release 3.1, do not configure settings in the Notifier area in the Configuration window of the Director when you configure settings as described in Step 4 of that procedure.
