D2 ETA for Read-Only Operations

There is an interesting new ETA for D2:  ETA 208101: Documentum D2: Attempts to run content operations with read-only permissions may result in potential data loss.  It seems that a previous Content Server security patch (v7.1 P18 and v7.2 P02) shored up the security of the dmr_content object but disabled the following operations in D2:

  • Sending documents to workflows.
  • Creating new content based on templates.
  • Restoring objects from the D2 Recycle Bin (D2-Bin).
  • Applying Virtual Document templates.
  • Applying inheritance when creating new content.

Opps!  I’m guessing some of these operations are important to a lot D2 implementations.

If you are running D2, EMC advises NOT to install Content Server patch  v7.1 P18 and v7.2 P02 (or later) until a patch is available for D2 v4.2 or v4.5.

I have been implementing Documentum solutions since 1997. In 2005, I published a book about developing Documentum solutions for the Documentum Desktop Client (ISBN 0595339689). In 2010, I began this blog as a record of interesting and (hopefully) helpful bits of information related to Documentum, and as a creative outlet.
