AbstractCompiledPage, Missing Plugins, and MANIFEST.MF in FP10 and V10 

By Jesse Gallagher | 10/19/18 8:36 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Since 9.0.1 FP 10, and including V10 because it's largely identical for this purpose, I've encountered and seen others encountering a couple strange problems with compiling XPages projects. This is a perfect opporunity for me to spin a tale about the undergirding frameworks, but I'll start out with the immediate symptoms and their fixes.

Dynamic Indexing of High-Usage Views 

By John Oldenburger | 10/18/18 11:23 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Kenio Carvalho

This feature keeps busy views up-to-date and enables them to be opened more quickly. There is no need to manually identify and manage view indexing for active views. When the feature is enabled on the Domino server the Domino server regularly monitors the level of update activity for all views in all open databases and assigns them an update activity score.

Domino 10 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 

By Oliver Busse | 10/18/18 7:32 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

This is not a supported OS, I know. However, I always installed Domino on Ubuntu and it worked like a charm - for development machines, my homepage, test servers - no problems at all. With V10 things changed a bit. When using Ubuntu locally I always used the latest server OS which now is 18.04 LTS - and it worked without any problem.

Quick-Tip: Monitoring Domino V10 with New Relic 

By Oliver Busse | 10/18/18 7:30 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

One feature that was mentioned on slides months ago but wasn’t as prominent as it should be is the built-in monitoring feature of your server with a service called „New Relic“. This is by far the most simple setup I’ve ever experienced during my 18-year lasting Domino career. The server should start to send stats data automatically after a few minutes without restarting.

One week V10 - a brief summary 

By Oliver Busse | 10/18/18 7:28 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

The first week with the final V10 release is almost done. There was a lot of testing going on in the community and I also did some deep dive into some of the new features. I wasn’t that interested in those new admin stuff like streaming replication, auto healing or scheduled mail. I even don’t have a test environment for that to play around with that.

Notes 10 Notes 10 - Stay away from older XTAF Dictionary Pack for spell check 

By Daniel Nashed | 10/17/18 7:33 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

If you try to install the separate available dictionaries which are only available in a 9.0 version ("IBM Notes XTAF Dictionaries V9.0 for Windows Multilingual (CIF0EML)"), your Notes 10 client will hand in the splash screen! This appears not to be a new issue, but it did not impact most of use because we mostly installed the international versions including the MUI. We either installed the local language version or a MUI pack which always contained the right dictionaries.

nshDelLog - Domino Deletion Log Annotation and Backup V 0.9.0 

By Daniel Nashed | 10/16/18 4:40 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Finally I have a first version of my deletion log application. It took a while because I wanted to add some flexibility and make it configurable. I am not officially releasing it yet to everyone because I want some feedback and some beta testing.

Domino v10? 

By Martin Jinoch | 10/12/18 6:18 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Do not get me wrong, I still care about the platform I've spent most of my professional career with. But couple of years ago I've realized IBM is never gonna make any significant and much needed changes to make it relevant. I wasn't convinced the HCL taking over Domino development will be any different. And judging by the event today, it won't.

Domino 10 - New Administrator Feature to Push to Notes Clients: Set Limits for Sending Mail

Domino V10 Launch App Dev Demo of REACT App & Office365 Integration 

By Adam Brown | 10/10/18 9:59 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

We are pumped! Domino V10 is released in Frankfurt and today we are in Japan for the launch here. Check out the awesome video from the opening session. Reminds me of the Domino R5 launch! So leading up to the Domino V10 launch we have been working with the IBM Domino V10 team to create a demo of a heritage Notes App being modernised as a REACT App running on Node with Domino still in the backend as the database store. We also helped the team to integrate their Demo Domino 10 apps with Office365 in a seamless manner.

IBM Notes Application Running in Office 365 

By Hogne B. Pettersen | 10/10/18 6:33 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Yesterday IBM Notes/Domino V10 was unveiled to the world in the first of a whole series of launch events around the world. We in the Norwegian user group, in cooperation with IBM, is doing the Norwegian launch in Oslo October 23rd. One of the biggest features (among a whole list of cool features like auto repair, Domino Query language etc) is that you now can use Node.js to develop solutions for the Domino platform. And ISW has now done something awesome that can give your Notes app increased life, even if your company has moved to Office 365.

Domino v10 Premiere – A short recap from Frankfurt 

By Milan Matejic | 10/10/18 5:29 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

The optimism, high hopes and anticipation for the Domino v10 was clearly not missing at the Bleed Yellow Party, the night before the official Domino v10 Launch event. The party was fully booked, and I really liked the event. Having everybody, people from IBM, HCL and Domino Enthusiasts, under the one roof before a big event like this felt great. A big thumbs up to DNUG for organizing this.

Domino 10 for Developers 

By Jesse Gallagher | 10/9/18 12:18 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

So Domino 10 is upon us, marking the first time in a good while that Domino has had an honest-to-goodness version bump. More than anything, I think V10 is about that sort of mark. Its primary role in the world is to state "Domino isn't dead" - not exactly coming from a position of strength for the platform, but it's the critical message that HCL has to sell if they're going to be viewed as anything but coroners. Still, in addition to merely existing, V10 brings some changes that will help developers, particularly those - sadly - maintaining large legacy applications.

All the 10s, Let’s Make Things Simple 

By Gabriella Davis | 10/9/18 10:29 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Announced at the Domino 10 launch today: if you have let your licensing for Domino lapse you can renew it until the end of the year saving up to 50%, and if you have licensing and need more then IBM will discount new licensing by up to 20% until the end of the year.

Fixing problems with IBM Notes on macOS Mojave 

By Oliver Busse | 10/7/18 12:11 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

I am using Mojave for some months now. I never used the Notes client on macOS but since there is a special interim fix for Mojave I thought I give it a try. The installation process is usually simple. For some reason I wasn’t able to install the client on my Macbook Pro as there were files left from a previous installation - I can’t recall to have Notes installed, but hey, I use this system for more than one year without wiping it.

Domino V10 Deletion Logging explained 

By Daniel Nashed | 10/7/18 7:47 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

During the beta I have played around with deletion logging, gave feedback and had some questions. Now shortly before the Domino V10 Launch event I think it is time to share some more detailed information. As far I understood there are no changes planned between Beta 2 and GA. Deletion Logging is implemented on lower database level and is activated per database. The settings are stored inside the database and do replicate.

Quick Domino Tip: Log Session Parameters 

By John Oldenburger | 10/5/18 7:09 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

The NOTES.INI parameter LOG_SESSIONS specifies whether individual sessions are recorded in the log file and displayed on the console. The parameter LOG_SESSIONS has two values as mentioned in the regular standard documentation, 0 and 1. As an example as we look in the IBM Domino Administrator 9.0.1 Social Edition Help database, only the values 0 and 1 are documented.

What's New in Domino V10: LotusScript Profiling Extended 

By Paul Withers | 10/3/18 2:11 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

When I got my hands on the Domino V10 beta, I started applying new methods to ODA and cross-referencing with LotusScript to work out what the parameters are. The Java methods typically have parameter names arg0, arg1 etc. But LotusScript gives more usable parameter names, which can often help identify what needs to be passed.

Deletion Logs – What’s Coming In V10 

By Gabriella Davis | 10/2/18 5:13 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

So deletion logs.. currently (without custom code) we cannot tell who deleted a document and what document they deleted in which database. With v10 deletion logging is now a standard trigger on the database that creates an entry in a delete.log file in the IBM_TECHNICAL_SUPPORT directory detailing every deletion activity.

Countdown Domino V10 - Be prepared and join us for the Bleed Yellow party 

By Daniel Nashed | 9/30/18 4:02 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Being part of the beta program I have been working with Notes/Domino 10 for a while. As one of the lucky holders of the golden tickets invited to the HCL Factory tour in July, I had be quite early access and also actively worked with the later public beta giving feedback. But also for me the Notes/Domino V10 Launch in October will probably bring some surprises!!

Upgrading the Domino Directory Template on a Domino Server 

By John Oldenburger | 9/28/18 6:37 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

As indicated in my previous blog post, Programmatically Replace or Refresh Design of Local Databases, a number of new templates have become available at the release of IBM Notes Domino Feature Pack 9. One of these templates is the new Domino Directory template (pubnames.ntf) that extends Holiday documents through years 2026 or 2027 and also adds policy updates for both Traveler and IBM Mail Support for Microsoft Outlook (IMSMO).

If you have trouble installing Notes 9.0.1 on Mojave with the installer erroring with "File /Applications/Notes.app/Contents/MacOS/rcp/rcplauncher not found. Provisioning process failed to launch or was terminated before status could be determined." a very quick reminder for this error that occured first on the APFS file system using High Sierra - make sure you have downloaded…

Replication / Save Conflict of Itself 

By Paul Withers | 9/19/18 9:17 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

For a while now I’ve been niggled by a quirk that I couldn’t understand the cause of. In one application, which uses a lot of local replicas and has been in use for many years, I occasionally had calls about documents that had “disappeared”. In each occasion I tracked them down as conflicts.

Domino logging to Syslog 

By Darren Duke | 9/19/18 7:53 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

So you have Domino. And you have a syslog server where everything except Domino is logged to. You want Domino to play along with everything else. What can you do? For starters there is this event handler type in events4.nsf. But in typical IBM fashion the documentation for the above is practically non-existent on how this works.

There is a support flash for an issue with iOS 12 with the native mail app. Before this change in iOS 12 a wrong configuration did not impact the user for normal operations. There have been only issues when the password was changed. Mobile devices cannot handle forms based authentication.
