Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
Thu, Feb 5th 2015 8:21p   Andy Donaldson
(And now it's time for some rambling thoughts) Prior to this year, every January for 12 years I have spent a week of my life away from work and the family and traveled to this place. And in that time spent there, I learned a great many things. I also met a great many people. Many of which I consider good friends. These are people from all over the world that normally I would never have met otherwise. We all come from different backgrounds and and have differences that possibly may have neve

At 2 PM today, this appeared on my Facebook messenger I won't go into the details here about what the next couple of hours had in store for me, but suffice it to say, a lot of incredible happened. Yes Virginia, I will be in Orlando this year. At least for a couple of days. I won't be attending ConnectED as an attendee, however. I will be down there to fulfill client request for headshot photos. Aside from being a Domino Admin at a local Fortune 500 company, I do after all have a photogra

Does Traveler have an issue with the Domino Domain?
Fri, Jan 16th 2015 11:02a   Andy Donaldson
This blog post is going to serve two purposes. First, to give a heads up of something I ran into this week. Secondly, if someone has seen this before, to give me a smack on the back of the head and and tell me that this is a known issue. So here goes. This week we were in the process of adding new mobile users onto our MDM system where Traveler is the endpoint for their mobile mail. Like most other organizations I'm sure, we use groups to secure who can and cannot access the Traveler server

Unable to find where I am in Sametime

Had an issue crop up this morning that is worth a share. For some oddball reason, I noticed that my geographic location was not working in Sametime. Normally haven't noticed it, but with working from home today I thought it would be nice if someone was looking for me. I went into the Sametime-Geographic Location section of the Preferences menu and tried to adjust the settings there. Wouldn't take. When I looked at the "Show Advanced View" option of the screen, I noticed that The Subnet

Every year about this time, I sit down in front of my computer and bang out my guide and tips for making your yearly journey to the holy land of collaborative awesomeness, Lotusphere. (You can click here to see all of the past years write-ups.) Well, it used to be called Lotusphere, but over the past couple of years it's had a bit of an identity crisis. This coming January it has once again had a change of name and is called ConnectED. Okay, no problem. But this year for the first time sinc

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. My

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

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

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
