|Administrating and configuring IBM Connections system is a complex task which involves many different technologies. Configuration of IBM Connections requires the administrator to work with more than 20 different XML files which must be checked out from the server, manually edited by the administrator and then checked in to the server again. Administration of IBM Connections live objects on the other hand features a case-sensitive command line interface in which the administrator needs to use complex, and syntax dependent multilevel commands following the Jython script language syntax.|

Many IBM Connections administrators come from the Domino world and are not used to launch wsadmin in a terminal, load a python script file, save the return of selective commands into variables and convert from a hash to a vector only to be able to add a user to a community. This approach to IBM Connections administration can be seen as needlessly complex and uncomfortable.
