divLets cut to the chase... Go to a href=http://stweb.bleedyellow.comhttp://stweb.bleedyellow.com/a from your web browser or from an iPhone (see note below for Droid and iPad...). Then, login with your same credentials used in your Sametime client. Happy chatting - it can come in really handy in a pinch when you need to contact someone! I know that many of you have been wanting to use the BleedYellow Instant Messaging server for a while but corporate policies have prevented you from installing a client or adding another Sametime Community. Hopefully this will work well for you, and ping me once you get in! img src=http://www.bleedyellow.com/blogs/images/smileys/smile.gif class=smiley alt=:) title=:) /bbr //b/divdiv /divdivWe have also done a couple of slick things to make this easier for you to access. First of all, we changed the port from the default 9080 to just 80. This is easily done through WebSphere. Secondly, thanks to Frank Altenburg and his wonderful presentation a href=http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/stwiki.nsf/dx/Sametime_8.5.1-From_Zero_to_Hero-Next_GenerationInstallation and Setup of IBM Lotus Sametime 8.5.1 - From Zero to Hero - The next Generation/a, there was a note in there on enabling redirection of the root path. So I was able to get the proxy.server.root.war application to install on the server so that you dont have to go to a href=http://stweb.bleedyellow.com/stwebclient/index.jsphttp://stweb.bleedyellow.com/stwebclient/index.jsp/a (which is the default). br //divdiv /divdivAlso, the iPhone access works well, but there is a known issue that should be fixed with 8.5.1 FP1. In some discussions I was having with a href=http://www.linkedin.com/in/brianochsBrian Ochs/a, he stated that he was having some similar problems. After he modified one of the js files, he was able to have it work for him. After doing the same thing over here, this is working on BleedYellow now. Thanks Brian - gotta love community!br //divdiv /divdivbDroid and iPad Users:/b You will have to go to directly a href=http://stweb.bleedyellow.com/stwebclient/iphone_index.jsphttp://stweb.bleedyellow.com/stwebclient/iphone_index.jsp/a and bookmark that page as the redirection does not happen automatically as it does with the iPhone. I can confirm that it works on iPad, and I have heard that it should work for Droid users as well. As these are not really quot;supportedquot; by IBM yet, YMMV.br //divdiv /divdivbCOOL Notes Client Use:/b As some of you may not be able to add another community, you may still be able to create a sidebar widget and point it to http://stweb.bleedyellow.com/stwebclient/popup.jsp. This should even pop up a new Notes Client window when you get a new chat. A good alternative to keeping a web browser window open.br //divdivbbr /
Important Note:/b There is also currently a known quot;issuequot; with expanding
public groups. Since the YellowBleeders group has around
9,000 users, expanding it will timeout. I recommend that you go in
through a Sametime Client or web browser and create a personal group
with the people you may collaborate with most frequently or just use the
browser interface to search the directory for their name and add them to your contacts./divdiv /divdivHappy Mobile Chatting! br //div
Using Domino 9's DBMT For Failover Stability
Mon, May 13th 2013 1:50p Chris Whisonant I have encountered several large customers (usually running an IBM OS) who have had major issues with the stability of their cluster-mates during a failover scenario. My recommendation in the past has been using program documents with some updall tasks to keep the Inbox and All Documents indices fresh.* Usually, running this once per week helps. If you're still running Domino 8.5.3 or earlier, you may want to do this. After implementing this with one customer, they had no more issues with st [read] Keywords: domino
Less Log Clutter with Notes and Domino 9
Wed, Apr 24th 2013 12:19p Chris Whisonant As I was monitoring server tasks today with the Domino 9.0 Administrator Client, I saw something I haven't seen before. As you may know, when you are refreshing the Server > Status > Server Tasks section in the Admin Client, that output has historically been echoed back to log.nsf since show tasks debug is the background request sent to Domino. That generally amounts to multiple log documents created making it difficult to scan for the information you may actually need.
But now the 9 [read] Keywords: admin
Take Advantage of New Compact Options With Domino 9
Tue, Apr 9th 2013 1:30p Chris Whisonant I have blogged about new compact options with 8.5.x previously, and now I would like to point out some new options with Domino 9.0.
First of all, from what I can determine the options available with DEBUG_ENABLE_COMPACT_8_5=1 are now available out-of-the-box with 9.0. By setting that parameter to =0 and issuing a load compact -?, the options from that parameter are all still valid.
Another configuration parameter you should set is MailFileDisableCompactAbort=1. This will prevent the router f [read] Keywords: domino
Our session slides are available, and what I learned in our session at IBM Connect '13
Wed, Feb 6th 2013 7:23a Chris Whisonant Mitch posted the details about this, but I learned that we should not refer to Traveler HA Servers as being in a "traveler cluster" as this can be confusing. They should instead be referred to as "Traveler HA Pools." It definitely makes sense to refer to the Traveler HA Pool in this way. Thanks for the clarification, Smith!
Also, our slide deck has been posted at SlideShare.net. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. [read] Keywords: ibm

After 6 Years A Possible Answer to a Blog Post
Fri, Oct 26th 2012 12:08p Chris Whisonant Over 6 years ago I blogged about what I believed to be a bug in Domino SMTP routing. It is something that has cropped up for me randomly over the years as well, but without a real solution. Sometimes restarting the router would clear things up and sometimes just a tell router update config would do the trick. Back in 2006, I asked "Should mail routing not look up to the mail routing (MX) records for resolution instead of just looking up to the DNS A record?"
Today, I see that IBM is tracking [read] Keywords: domino

IBM Connections 3.0.1 Fixpack 1 Available
Fri, Mar 16th 2012 10:10a Chris Whisonant Looks like Connections 22.214.171.124 is finally hitting FixCentral! I'm hoping some oddities we've seen will be corrected.
Timely enough, I'm just finishing up a 3.0.1 installation and am loading this fixpack now!
The fixpack file (126.96.36.199-LC-Multi-IFLC3011_FP) is a 0.97 GB download. In order to actually install it, when you add it as a repository to the Installation Manager you have to add ".zip" to the end of the filename. Then it appears to know what to do and update properly.

Chrome Broken With IBM Connections
Mon, Jan 9th 2012 3:10p Chris Whisonant Recently, we've had some internal people receiving the following issue when downloading from Connections Files:
Duplicate headers received from server
The response from the server contained duplicate headers. This problem is generally the result of a misconfigured website or proxy.
As I started to dig into it further, I have found that with Google Chrome 16.0.912.75 (the latest stable release as of today), others are receiving the same error when using other non-IBM products. Of c [read] Keywords: connections
