A Lotus Traveler upgrade issue - Self-inflicted
   

Let's face it.  Lotus Traveler has been the true gem in the Lotus software portfolio.  All of us who are Admins of the server know, it just works.  So going into today's upgrade of my production server from beta to the full 8.5.2 version I didn't think it was going to be a big deal.  But then the problems started. But as I came to find out, they were self-inflicted.
After upgrading to the latest 8.5.2 code and applied FP1, I saw that there was a hot fix available for the server to resolve an SSL issue.  It's a manual install that requires copying a couple of files and then editing the VersionInfo.txt on the server.  Not a big deal, right.  Well, that's what I thought too.
After installing, I fired up Domino and made sure the Traveler task started, I went off testing my iPod Touch and my Windows Mobile 6 device.  Mail was syncing and all was working well.  I then went off to test the install on Droid.  As part of the upgrade from beta to full production version, you have to un-install and reinstall Traveler on the Droid.  Since I had the installer .apk in my Gmail, I ran the install from that.  When the install of the Lotus Traveler Installer finished on my Droid, it came up and asked for my server name, user name and password.  I entered all of the information required, but it wouldn't connect to the server. Error connecting to server was the message that kept popping up.  Tried EVERY combination that I could think of for user name and server name.  Nothing.  But I found out the problem.
You need to be VERY careful when copying in the new information for the VersionInfo.txt file.  Turns out that when I copied over the information from the readme, I didn't do it correctly.  Instead of the lines reading:
#Lotus Mobile Installer - Android
Lotus Installer.Android.filename=LotusInstaller.apk
Lotus Installer.Android.version=8.5.2.1 201012142159

it looked more like

#Lotus Mobile Installer - Android
Lotus Installer.Android.filename=LotusInstaller.apk Lotus
Installer.Android.version=8.5.2.1 201012142159

So after correcting that, it worked right away.   So be warned.  While copy and paste can be your best friend, it can also be your downfall ;-)

Another one bites the dust.
Mon, Jun 9th 2014 7:09p   Andy Donaldson
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
Sun, Feb 2nd 2014 1:39p   Andy Donaldson
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

All good things..... My week at IBM Connect 2014
Sun, Feb 2nd 2014 12:56p   Andy Donaldson
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

Andy's Guide to Connect-o-sphere 2014
Sat, Jan 4th 2014 10:39a   Andy Donaldson
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.
