@GetMachineInfo: New macro for probing user's workstation
Wed, May 2nd 2012 8:10a   Bodek Frak
I came across a new @Function that I was always always hoping to see added to Lotus Notes one day. @GetMachineInfo has been been introduced in 8.5.3 and can be very useful to both administrators and developers. Administrators can use it with policies to distinguish between different workstations that any given user is running Notes on. As per IBM's Technote 1501673, "in prior versions of the Notes Client, and policy control, an administrator could target an individual, but not a [read] Keywords: admin domino ibm lotus lotusscript notes notes client policies application applications desktop development laptop mac macintosh properties

RoamingUserUpdateFlag Mystery
Wed, Apr 11th 2012 9:11a   Bodek Frak
When roaming is enabled by the administrator on the existing Person in Domino Directory, several fields with names starting with "Roam..." are being populated with data. While most of them are well documented or their purpose is easily understood, among them is the one mysterious field called "RoamingUserUpdateFlag". Coincidentally, this is also the name of the notes.ini parameter that gets added to the client's notes.ini at the time roaming was enabled.

'ImapDb' object has no attribute 'notify_folder_emptied' - Issue with IMAP on BlackBerry Playbook
Mon, Mar 26th 2012 12:12p   Bodek Frak
We are experiencing intermittent outages of IMAP on BlackBerry Playbook. Much of the time, Playbook is unable to connect to the Domino IMAP server and displays this error message: "'ImapDb' object has no attribute 'notify_folder_emptied'". Both IBM and RIM Tech Support have no idea what is causing this. It seems that removing the IMAP account from the Playbook and adding it back solves the issue, but only temporarily. The error eventually comes back. the strange thing is that at the [read] Keywords: domino ibm blackberry email rim server

IBM Lotus Traveler on BlackBerry Playbook
Mon, Mar 26th 2012 10:10a   Bodek Frak
IBM does not officially support Traveler on the new BlackBerry Playbook OS 2.0, but our testing shows that for the most part Traveler works great on it as an integrated app (ie. added as an account through the settings screen). So far, we only run into two issues that I described below. To successfully add a Traveler account to your Playbook, you have to use Advanced Setup, select Microsoft Exchange ActiveSynch (ironic, isn't it?), leave domain empty, and instead of just typing the serve [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus notes traveler blackberry exchange exchange microsoft password server

Manage private views in Lotus Notes database
Fri, Jan 6th 2012 1:11p   Bodek Frak
I just discovered that you can now see and manage all private views inside NSF file using Domino Administrator client. Not just your private views, all private views including those that belong to other users as well. I'm not sure when this functionality was added, I must have missed this announcement. In the past, we used to have to use some tricks, (like creating new view and saving it without any name), or scripts to extract info about other user's private views. Now, you just ne [read] Keywords: administration domino lotus notes database server

Wed, Jan 4th 2012 1:09p   Bodek Frak
I just LOVE to try all the new stuff that gets added to each maintenance release of Lotus Notes. It makes me feel like a kid opening Christmas presents. I savour and enjoy each one of them. And I appreciate the effort that the IBM put into improving their product and listening to the feedback from their customers. I really do. But I also hate when I discover that some things that were available in previous versions are no longer working properly, or worse, have been removed purposely with [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus lotusphere notes notes client sametime bug microsoft

Tweak The Auto-Populated Groups Feature In Domino 8.5.3
Tue, Oct 18th 2011 1:09p   Bodek Frak
Back in 2008, we found this great blog post on eknori.de on how to "Tweak The Auto-Populated Groups Feature In Domino 8.5". It describes a very elegant solution that does not require any modifications to the existing design elements in pubnames.ntf. Although most likely not supported by the IBM, this works great and we have implemented it in our environment with great success. By the way, I'm still unclear why IBM does not include this in their template..., maybe someone knows the reas [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus ntf server

Warning: DAOS object minimum participation size = 4096, which is below the minimum recommended value of 64000
Thu, May 5th 2011 10:10a   Bodek Frak
Help file in Domino Administrator 8.5.2 says: "Minimum size of object before Domino will store in DAOS : The minimum total size, in bytes, of any attachment to be consolidated (the default is 4096 bytes). Enter a number. Consolidating attachments of very small size is not worth the processing effort because it does not yield much disk space saving." 4096 bytes is 4 Kbytes, and that's what we have used to configure DAOS on our servers from its introduction in release 8.0.

Moving users to new server occasionally corrupts location document.
Mon, May 2nd 2011 9:08a   Bodek Frak
Recently, we had a serious failure of one of the three Domino servers in our cluster. We had to move people to another server using "Move to Another Server" tool in Domino Administrator 8.5.2. Later, we had to move them back, and we took this opportunity to split all our user's population evenly between the three servers in the cluster. In the end, we used this tool on every one of our 2,917 users. Once I updated their home server assignment using Domino Administrator, the next tim [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus notes server

Synchronising groups between Notes Contacts and BlackBerry
Thu, Jan 27th 2011 1:20p   Bodek Frak
I always assumed that when BlackBerry gets connected to a BES server running in Lotus Notes/Domino environment, it will synchronise both contact and group documents between the device and Lotus Notes address book (aka Contacts database/application). Just recently, I became aware that this is not the case. Unless your BlackBerry uses device software version 5.0.x or greater, the group documents will not synchronise between your desktop and your device at all. Even with 5.0.x, and the latest [read] Keywords: admin domino ibm lotus notes application bes blackberry database desktop enterprise rim server

Return Receipt feature still not supported in BES 5.0 for Domino
Wed, Jan 26th 2011 5:14p   Bodek Frak
Recently, we have deployed a new BES server with the latest available version of BES, that is 5.0.2. While I was ecstatic about all the improvements that RIM put in there (compared to the BES 4.1 that we have been using up until this point), I was disappointed when I realised that some key Lotus Notes and Domino features that have been around forever, are still not supported in the latest version of BES. Some of these were not very obvious, and in case of the Return Receipt, I actually go [read] Keywords: domino lotus notes bes blackberry desktop email exchange exchange profile rim server
