  • Walt A S3 SysAdmin Black Belts I am attempting to install the Lawson 9.01.13 environment on Windows 2008 Server using AD LDS. I am getting an error in the installation of the LSFCT.jar file on the screen to enter the Organization for the RMdata. I did not create the DN to hold the RMdata before hand. I created: the base DN: cn=lwsn,dc=methodisthospitals,dc=org a container to hold the RMdata organization object: cn=Metadata I changed the schema to set container as the superior to organization. When attempting to step to the next screen, I get the error: Failed LDAP parent DN lookup test. couldn't find 0=lwsnrmdata,cn=Metadata,cn=lwsn,dc=methodisthospitals,dc=org. Can someone give me the correct procedure to use so the installation can add the Lawson metadata to AD LDS? Thanks.

Business Innovation Lessons From NASA
The Saturn V moon rocket, designed to fly Apollo astronauts to the moon, was 363 feet tall and was one of the most powerful rockets ever built. Yet, just eight years before the launch, NASA's leadership and engineers were intimidated by President Kennedy's 1961 declaration that we would land Americans on the moon by the end of the decade. Later, they'd confess that in those early days, they "did not even know what they did not know."

Another Update on Alleged Patent Infringement

Back in 2011, Lawson responded to an Alleged Patent Infringement by replacing Requisition Self-Service (RSS) with Requisition Center (RQC). In the meantime, Lawson has been acquired by Infor, but the patent case still lingers. Here’s an update. Some of you might have received this notice from Infor, and are unsure how this might impact your […]

Time To Rename LawsonGuru ?

With Lawson S3 and M3 customers adopting integrated Infor products, is it time to expand and rename the LawsonGuru Letter and LawsonGuru.com? I thought it would be fun to ask the community for advice. Here are some ideas:Filed under: Infor, Infor Acquisition

Inforum 2013

I just returned from Orlando, having attended Inforum 2013. Last year’s Inforum, which quickly followed the acquisition of Lawson by Infor, was really just a combination of Lawson’s annual conference (CUE) with Infor’s name and logo slapped on for good measure. This year was quite a different story. Starting with the fact that I was actually […]
