Traveler 11 and ActiveSync 16.1 - What to expect after upgrade with iOS devices using Apple native apps  

By Detlev Poettgen | 2/12/20 3:02 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Andi Kress

After some discussions with the HCL Traveler team regarding seen issues after upgrading to Traveler 11 with iOS devices using the Apple native mail app, HCL published an detailed article. The article describes, what happens in the background on the device, when the Traveler 11 Server is started after the update and from then on uses version 16.1 for iOS devices instead of the previous ActiveSync 14 version.

Domino SMTP error limit before terminating connections  

By Daniel Nashed | 2/10/20 2:14 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Matteo Bisi

My friend Harvey and I noticed a lot of brute force delivery attempts on servers to figure out about email addresses. By default Domino doesn't limit the number of errors until a connection is closed. But there is a notes.ini entry and setting in config document to define the number of errors. https://help.hcltechsw.com/domino/11.0.0/conf_definingthemaximumerrorlimitbeforeaconnectionterm_t.html For larger servers you have to be careful, because that could also prevent newsletters from being delivered, if there are too many users which don't exist. On my own server I set the value now to 4 ;-)

Enabling Automatic Dead Mail Processing

We currently work in our production environment with a full Domino 10 environment. Both the server and the clients are currently running on Notes Domino 10.0.1 Fix Pack 4. We have also upgraded the Domino Directory to the corresponding 10 Template and have the mail running on the Mail 10 Template.

Traveler 11 HTTP/2 Push changes in detail - Review before updating

Detlev Pöttgen and I ran into this with the first deployments and we put together the details behind it (so you will find the same blog post on his blog and my blog). There will be a documentation update from HCL side. Here is what we found out in detail with the feedback we got from the Traveler team.

Verse on-Premises or iNotes? Default or option?  

By Ales Lichtenberg | 2/6/20 4:07 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Verse On-Premises (VOP) is already in version 1.0.9.A. Most users are still used to accessing mail from a web browser using iNotes. Do you want to set VOP as default or give users a option between iNotes and VOP? Upgrade your design or create a new iwaredir from the template included in the VOP 1.0.9 or 1.0.9.A package.

Domino Administration Back to Basics Part 2 - Networking  

By Stephan Wissel | 2/4/20 7:37 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Kenio Carvalho

Domino Administration Back to Basics Part 2 - Networking - In Part 1 we learned about the marvelous world of Notes Names, X400 and the perils of messing with certificates. One big difference to X509 is the (almost) absence of certificate Command Line tools that can be so much fun. Domino Networking - protocols as you like it Domino predates the rise of TCP.

Domino Administration - Back to Basics (Part 1) Certificates  

By Stephan Wissel | 2/4/20 5:44 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Domino Administration - Back to Basics (Part 1) Certificates - Domino is different, a lot of its concepts predate the internet and quite often inspired the standards. This is not an step-by-step instruction, but an introduction into concepts. The 'step by step' approach is another story for another time.

Quick Domino Tip: Error Failed with no Supported Ciphers  

By John Oldenburger | 2/3/20 9:47 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

On one of our Domino servers that we upgraded to Domino 10.0.1 last weekend we disabled TLS 1.0. After the upgrade to Domino 10 we performed as always an SSL server test (SSL Labs) from which the reference emerged that the overall rating would be downgraded to Grade B from January 2020. Reason for the downgrade was that TLS 1.0 was still supported by the server.

Sametime 11 – Enabling person photo in the client  

By Roberto Boccadoro | 1/31/20 9:23 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

If you want to enable photos in the Sametime client, there is documentation available, unfortunately it all refers to versions 9 or 10, where it was told to use the Sametime Console. Now in version 11 the Sametime Console does not exist, so how do you do that ?

Sametime 11 – What to do if file transfer is not working  

By Roberto Boccadoro | 1/28/20 10:39 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

I stumbled into a problem at one of my customers. In the client, the icon for file transfer was greyed out and the one for sending a screenshot was missing. I opened a case with HCL and the suggestion was to enable the setting im.3000 in the file policies.user.xml. By default the current-value is 0.

I installed a Sametime 11 server for a customer, everything was working, but the mobile clients could not access the server. Upon trying to login they saw this on their phones. I was not the only one with this problem, other 2 persons I know had the same issue with their installation.

As a follow-up to my previous blog post, Comparing Searches - Using the DQL Explorer, a few additions concerning the use of the DQL Explorer. Initially a number of settings are required for Domino Access Services (DAS). The Web application relies on Domino Access Services (DAS) being enabled on the dqlexplorer.nsf (default).

Feature Request: Trash for Folders. In many customer environments, restoring deleted folders is number one reason for restoring databases. For documents you already have soft-deletions and the trash (default 48 hours which can be increased). And you can restore the document to the original folder.

DAOS – JAR files in Java agents  

By Ulrich Krause | 1/24/20 12:50 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

If DAOS is activated on a database, in addition to the attachments from data documents, the jar files contained in a Java agent are also transferred to the DAOS repository if they exceed the set size. I have been able to reproduce the problem with Domino V11. I started with a freshly installed server, activated DAOS on the server.

Bringing a Notes Database Back Online  

By Chris Whisonant | 1/23/20 11:08 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

Often as an Admin we run into an error such as “database is being taken offline and cannot be opened“. This can be a pain to recover from sometimes, but with a few lines of code you may be able to recover without any server downtime. However, I have even seen times where this might not succeed.

SELinux Support for Domino  

By Daniel Nashed | 1/22/20 8:34 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

There is a AHA idea to have Domino support SELinux. My impression was that SELinux is already supported with current Domino releases. I asked HCL and it turned out that SELinux is not tested, thus it is currently not supported. It would be extra test effort for every distibution and version to run with SELinux.

HCL Domino V11 – Directory Synchronzation – Part 7

When you use Directory Sync, you can register Active Directory users in Domino to create mail files and Notes IDs for them. To register Active Directory users in Domino, open the Admin client and navigate to “People & Groups -> People“. Select the name of an Active Directory user to register. Right-click and select Register Selected Person.

DQL: What Is It Good For?

DQL has been at the forefront of my radar since Domino V10 over a year ago. If I remember correctly, documentation wasn’t immediately available in Domino Designer’s Help, but was soon published online. It’s been at the heart of sessions and advances ever since.

HCL Domino V11 – Directory Synchronzation – Part 6

In this part of the tutorial, we want to look at what happens when DirSync synchronizes objects from Active Directory. Let’s first take a look into the Directory Assistance document for the AD domain to find the BaseDN. Using LDAPAdmin, we can now navigate to CN=Sync under the root entry DC=ad,DC=fritz,DC=box.
