Upgrade Lotus Domino 8.5.0 to 8.5.1 FP2 semaphore errors
Fri, Sep 14th 2012 8:09p   Levin Purba
We wanted to upgrade our IBM Lotus Domino 8.5.0 HF23 to the latest version and fixpack in one shot but it didn’t work as expected with the server never coming back up after the upgrade. Turns out that applying the FP2 immediately after applying the 8.5.1 incremental install was a bad idea. The message that we saw on the server console complains about constant semaphore errors and rendered the server inaccessible to our users. Luckily we have a cluster mate that takes care of email, calenda [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus lotusscript notes notes client protector email enterprise security server

IBM Sametime Chat Notification pauses Windows Media Player

While playing music in the Windows Media Player running on Windows 7 64-bit playback would suddenly pause whenever I got a chat notification from IBM Sametime. Each and every  time I had to push play to get the music going again.  Very annoying!The problem turned out to be with a setting in Windows Control Panel that controls the behavior of the media player.  To fix the problem follow the steps below: a) Click on Start b) Click on Control Panel. c) In control panel select the option [read] Keywords: ibm sametime sametimelotus applications skype

I was trying unsuccessfully to install the IBM Worklight Developer Edition. I noticed that it was hanging while “fetching org.apache.derby.core_10.5.1.1_v20120213.jar.pack.gz“. At first I thought the problem was with the mirrors timing out as it kept trying to fetch from different mirrors unsuccessfully. However, I then noticed that it was actually partially downloading the archive, but before it could finish the download the connection appeared like it got “reset” and th [read] Keywords: ibm archive bug eclipse java mobile

I was a little late in the game to try to get Lotus Traveler to work on the Kindle Fire since I only purchased the tablet in the middle of March of this year (2012).  I didn’t even bother to check whether Lotus Traveler on the Amazon Kindle Fire was even supported or not.  Only after purchasing the device did I find out that the official word from IBM was that it was not supported.  I really wanted a smaller format, easy to carry tablet for my upcoming travels (I already have the first [read] Keywords: domino ibm ldd lotus notes traveler application applications email linux security server wifi

Does it make sense for SMBs to make the switch from Lotus Domino Enterprise to Lotus Domino Collaboration Express?
Mon, Jun 6th 2011 6:13p   rgesteland
I’m told that IBM frowns on companies switching/downgrading their licenses from Lotus Domino Enterprise to a “lesser” license. I don’t really know if that is true, but it is perfectly understandable that IBM would prefer that a client continues its Software Subscription and Support with an Enterprise-level product versus purchasing a product targeted to SMBs. Therefore, it comes to no surprise that there is no “downgrade” path from a IBM Lotus Domino Enterpris [read] Keywords: collaboration domino ibm inotes lotus notes enterprise integration server

I was confronted with two issues when installing Sametime Entry 8.5.1 after the BES Express server was installed on the Domino 8.5.2 FP2 server. When I installed Sametime Entry 8.5.1 over Lotus Domino 8.5.2 FP2 today I got an error message stating: “Xsp Initialization error – Could not get JVM environment”.  After a little bit of searching I found out the following: The problem turned out to be that the BES Express installation was effectively setting any JVM to be disabled i [read] Keywords: domino lotus notes noteslotus sametime sametimelotus bes enterprise java server

Disk corruption causes Lotus Foundations Start server CPU to spike and become inaccessible
Mon, Oct 11th 2010 8:07p   rgesteland
On 2 separate occasions and on 2 separate Lotus Foundations Start IBM servers, we experienced a problem where the server became inaccessible remotely and even on-site. Even the handy LCD panel buttons were unresponsive when pressed. Furthermore, since the server is used as the network’s main router, none of the workstations were able to access the Internet anymore. The only solution was to turn the server off and then back on again. However, this only fixed the problem temporarily. Within [read] Keywords: foundations ibm lotus network server
