Find us at Engage Conference next Week
Thu, Mar 26th 2015 7:32a   Daniel Nashed
Next week many of us are travelling to Engage conference in Ghent. I am already looking forward to an interesting conference and hopefully will see many of you there. My presentation will be an updated version of the IBM Security Best Practices session Dave Kern and me presented at ConnectED conference in Orlando. I will speak about the current status and the new stuff coming in end of Q1 in the area of TLS, SHA-256 and related security topics. And as mentioned before I am working on R

Solution for Notes/Domino related process is still running when applying a Fixpack or Hotfix
Wed, Mar 25th 2015 3:53a   Daniel Nashed
The problem came up a couple of times and the solution seems still hard to find even it is listed in Kbase. When you try to install a fixpack or hotfix the installer reports that "Notes/Domino related process is still running" even Domino and NSD Service is stopped. It looks like that when the Notes statistics are registered on OS level the "Windows Management Instrumentation Service" (short WMI Service) keeps Notes DLLs blocked. The workaround is to stop the "Windows Management Ins

Fritzbox phone number lookup pre-delivery agent
Mon, Mar 9th 2015 6:03a   Daniel Nashed
There is a e-mail notification option in the Fritzbox which I am using for a while. But I did not find a nice way to sync my IBM Notes contacts to my Fritzbox yet. They offer just a connection to certain German e-mail providers. But since my mailfile contains all contacts, having a pre-delivery agent to do the lookup for an incoming call-notification was my "plan B". I build a view that ensures that the lookup can work against an international number format with +country code + area co

Domino Start Script systemd Support
Fri, Mar 6th 2015 7:54a   Daniel Nashed
Domino 9.0.1 FP3 IF1 also supports SLES12. So it is time to finish my work on systemd support which is the new service model used in RHEL7 and SLES12. Enclosed you find the current description of the changes in the start script for systemd support. Some parts really need to change to support the new model. But I am keeping the concept that rc_domino is the main entry point for all your operations. The following is a short description. I am currently writing the documentation for the n

SSL V2 HELO can be re-enabled with 9.0.1 FP3 IF1
Wed, Feb 25th 2015 3:45p   Daniel Nashed
As discussed before the security fixes introduced with the additon of TLS 1.0 removed V2 SSL HELO support. This caused issues with applications that still use the V2 SSL HELO for compatibility issues. Specially older OpenSSL Versions did use V2 SSL HELO unless explicitly specifying TLS 1.0. For most applications you can work-around it with updating the OpenSSL version to a current level. But specially when using the SMTP STARTTLS extension we don't control what the connecting server uses

SLES 12 support added in 9.0.1 FP3 IF1
Tue, Feb 24th 2015 1:19p   Daniel Nashed
There is a new section that you should note and regularly check: http://www.lotus.com/ldd/fixlist.nsf/WhatsNew/ This section will provide important updates to the fixlist. In this case the support for SLES 12 with 9.0.1 FP3 IF1! WOW! That was a fast response! Normally new major OS versions have to wait at least for a dot release! THANKS!!! As posted before there was a technical issue with restricted ports because bindsock did not work any more because of kernel changes in SLES 12. IBM a

Notes/Domino 9.0.1 FP3 - Java Console/Controller Incompatibility
Wed, Feb 18th 2015 5:35a   Daniel Nashed
As discussed before, it's not a good idea to completely disable SSLv3 too soon. Notes/Domino 9.0.1 FP3 ships with a newer JVM version that completely disables SSLv3. The Oracle team disabled SSLV3 by default but the IBM JVM team completely removed SSLv3. The Domino server controller and Server Console are based on Java and use the SSL/TLS stack for communication. Domino before FP3 uses SSLv3 only -- I don't want to start any theories about why ... The newer version with FP3 and highe

Planned Domino 9 SLES 12 Support
Thu, Jan 29th 2015 6:25p   Daniel Nashed
The question for SLES 12 has been raised during IIBM ConnectED. There is an issue with Domino on SLES 12 and SLES 12 is not currently supported (in contrast with RHEL 7). There is a SPR # YXYX9RA56Z "Error - Unable to Bind port 443 or 80" on SUSE12. I have checked in the Lab and got a similar info than what has been posted before on the web: "There is a known issue with SLES 12 where bindsock has issues. Before we can support SLES 12 and any other newer kernel with this issue, we will

ConnectED Session Slides posted BP102: Practical IBM Notes and Domino Internet Security
Tue, Jan 27th 2015 10:45p   Daniel Nashed
Today I had the pleasure to present with Dave Kern about Domino internet security. Now that the presentation is public, I can speak about all the details that we presented. See the slides for all details. We covered what is already available in 9.0.1 FP3 and what is coming after FP3 quite soon. In the session demo we had a the SSL Test website showing a A- up to A+ rating depending on the configuration. There is a lot good stuff coming up in a scheduled interims fix. This includes TLS

Notes/Domino 9.0.1 FP3 has shipped
Wed, Jan 21st 2015 11:09a   Daniel Nashed
Today Notes/Domino 9.0.1 FP3 has been shipped. Already installed it on my production server. There are new new "SSL/TLS" releated fixes in FP3. But there are updates planned after FP3. So updating to FP3 is the base and you should consider an update soon. It's always better to install a FP than a IF which is technically a combo hotfix. There are also a couple of other important fixes in FP3. When you look into the Fixlist you see a couple of database/DAOS releated fixes. The FP al
