Migrating Traveler

We've all come across it.nbsp; There comes a time in an admins life when you have to move a server instance from one piece of hardware to another piece of hardware.nbsp; Usually it's an EOL situation, hardware upgrade or even for DR testing purposes.nbsp; Moving Domino is usually an extremely easy task.nbsp; Shut down Domino on the old server, install the application on the new server to match your old server, copy/paste, rename servers, reboot, smoke cigar.nbsp; But when another Domino based add-on into gets in the mix, things could get a little tricky.nbsp; Or at least, a heightened paranoid level.nbsp; But as I found today, moving Traveler to a new server because the old one was EOL, was really pretty straight forward and simple.nbsp; And didn't require the users to have to do anything.nbsp; Here's my steps:nbsp; (Mind you, YOUR mileage may vary so test or have a good backup on hand, just in case.)br /1.nbsp; Shut down old Domino server, not the hardware.br /2.nbsp; Copy/paste all Domino .nsf's from old server to new server.br /3.nbsp; Copy over the servers .id and .ini br /4.nbsp; Don't forget the .kyr and .sth files too!br /5.nbsp; On the old server, access the folder LotusDominoDatatravelerbr /6.nbsp; Copy all of the folders that exist there.br /7.nbsp; Paste the folders to the new server under the same folder structure.br /8.nbsp; Finish renaming and readdressing the servers as needed.br /9.nbsp; Don't forget to disable the Domino service on the old server before you reboot!br /10.nbsp; Reboot servers and launch Domino on the new server.br /That's it.br /Once the server came back online, I did a sync with my iPod touch and whamo-o!nbsp; Instant sync.br /Earlier in the week, I had opened a ticket with Lotus support, and they had informed me that move to a new server was not a problem, but the users may have to resync all their data and that could take a while.nbsp; That's when I got to thinking and found that all of the current sync data exists in the above folder structure.nbsp; Copying those folders to the new server made the first sync to the server appear like it hadn't missed a beat.nbsp; I love it when Lotus makes things nice and simple.nbsp; Time for that cigar.div class="blogger-post-footer"img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/5685203-6330562409650138340?l=blog.macian.net' alt='' //div

I've been feeling it coming for a long time now. The eventuality that my days as a full time Domino Administrator coming to a close. I've known for some time at work, (past couple of years), that there has been a lot of conversation about migrating away from the Domino stack. At first I fought it. Nobody listened. Nobody cared. No help from IBM either. As far as I'm concerned, they gave up on us as a customer a long time ago. Haven't heard from my rep in months. So why fight it.

Back before the turn of the century, I didn't know what I wanted in the world. I thought I did and that took me down many roads. But most of the time, it was roads that others had already paved. I hadn't made any of my own. I was at a crossroads in life I felt. I was on the verge of making a decision to either sticking it out in Ohio, or move back to Michigan and live in my parents basement to start over. I was looking for answers on a direction in life and that's when I decided to look [read] Keywords: email

Sametime Video Calls on a MacBook Pro - not happening
Thu, Mar 27th 2014 9:10a   Andy Donaldson
Okay, blogosphere, I need your ear for a few minutes.The overlords here at the day job want to start support Macs. That's a good thing in my opinion. IBM has had a Notes client for Mac, (but not an Admin or Dev client), for some time now. But with rolling out new hardware, we have to make sure everything works of course. What's not working for me right now, and is reproducible on another like Mac, is that video calls in Sametime won't work. We have nice, shiny new MacBook Pro's with Re [read] Keywords: admin ibm notes notes client sametime mac macbook skype

Migrating Traveler to HA Error
Sat, Mar 15th 2014 6:48a   Andy Donaldson
Today was the day I made the leap to migrate our production Traveler server from running on the Derby database to an SQL database. While we are not taking full advantage of HA with multiple servers, I wanted to at least get us migrated to a more robust database. Having walked through the migration steps at this link in our test environment, I felt pretty confident with the task ahead. After the server restarted and Traveler launched, the migration process began. But not too long after the mi [read] Keywords: ibm ldd lotus notes traveler database google server sql

My time with the Surface Pro

One change I made this year to the tools I took with to IBM Connect was the computer I carried with me. This year I was fortunate enough to borrow a 1st generation Windows Surface Pro tablet with keyboard and pen. I have to say, I have fallen quite smitten for this device. Not just because it's a new toy to play with but because it is a fully functional laptop and tablet all in one! Since the announcement of the iPad several years ago, tablet computing has brought with it the promise of bei [read] Keywords: admin domino ibm notes apple applications desktop development laptop mac macbook microsoft office

Photo courtesy of John Roling. Back home in Ohio after a long week away in Orlando. This years Connect conference was different on many levels. For one, a lot of the normal faces that I've come to know over the years were missing. Another difference was the tone of the conference. It's no longer just all about us. This year, the merging of the Connect theme has truly taken over the Lotusphere themes that we were used to. To be honest, I'm okay with that. There was still plenty of sessi [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm lotus lotusphere notes notes client community microsoft outlook server taking notes wifi

The annoyance that is encrypted internet mail - Answers!
Thu, Jan 23rd 2014 1:10p   Andy Donaldson
If you read yesterday's post about enabling a Notes client user to send encrypted email from the Notes client to an Internet recipient, I got it to work, but, it did have some issues and unanswered questions. Today the good folks at Symantec got me the answers that were holding me up, and they were pretty straight forward. As I talked about yesterday, I was getting an error when trying to import the certificate from the Symantec/Verisign website to my Internet Explorer browser.

Okay. To other people in the Domino world, getting an IBM Notes client configured to send encrypted email over the internet to a recipient may not be a big deal. But to me, it has been a pain in my buttocks. A royal one at that. But this week, I was able to finally make some headway and get things working. How you say? Well, let me share with you my journey. It all started a while ago when our director of tax for the company told me that the IRS has a rule that they can only send email bac [read] Keywords: agent domino ibm ldd lotus notes notes client email firefox office outlook password security

It's that time of the year again, kids. January is upon us and for those that are involved with IBM Collaboration technologies, it's our favorite time of the year. It's the time when we get to head to Orlando from what used to be called Lotusphere but now is a part of the bigger IBM picture and renamed Connect. Connect incorporates both the old Lotusphere technical tracks that we have all come to rely upon over the years but also features sessions on the Kenexa family of technologies.
