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.

Beginning with Cisco WebEx Social 3.1 SR2, a configuration page appears the first time that a user clicks the Sign-in button to access voice messages via the Visual Voice Mail portlet. On this page, the user must enter the log in credentials that are required to access voice messages. The system saves this information so it is not required for subsequent sign-ins to the Visual Voice Mail portlet.

The following know issue applies to email notifications: If you are subscribed to a Cisco WebEx Social community category, then subscribe to a discussion in that category, then unsubscribe from that discussion, you continue to receive email notifications for replies to that discussion.

With the introduction of support for Sametime 8.5.2 IFR1, the configuration under
Integration > Chat Proxy in the Director no longer used is for the Sametime chat server. Instead, use the options under Server > Common Configuration > Chat on the WebEx Social App node.

Beginning with WebEx Social 3.1 SR3, the WebEx Social clients (end-users browsers) require network routing access to the Sametime proxy server for Sametime chat to be operational. The new implementation does not proxy Sametime requests through the WebEx Social Apache server.

For successful operation of the Sametime chat integration, apply this IBM recommended Sametime 8.5.2 IFR1 Hot Fix: 8521-ST-PROXY-IF-AGRE-94AF9F. In addition, Sametime chat requires the WebEx Social domain be added to the domainList in the Sametime proxy server.

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.
