There has been some confusion about how BES10 will access Domino based mailfiles.
A couple of customers asked me to explain how this is going to work.
The following abstract describes briefly on high level how both will work together.
The current BES server uses a C-API based solution which access the Domino Mail-Databases via Notes protocol (NRPC).
With BES10 there is no native access any more and BES 10 only support devices with the new BB OS.
All communication between BES 10 and Domino will be over ActiveSync to a IBM Notes Traveler Server which will use native NRPC to access user's mailfiles.
So the communication is BES10 -> Traveler via ActiveSync
Traveler -> Domino via NRPC.
BB10 devices will normally connect to the BES10 server using the infrastructure that you already know.
So the same security and encryption applies for BB10 devices. You can use policies in a similar way you could use in previous BES releases.
The BES10 server will control the "business" part of the device.
For other device types like iOS and Android the connectivity will be directly from the device to the Traveler server using ActiveSync.
But the mobile device functionality of the BES10 server can be leveraged. So for iOS devices you can install a profile with a payload containing the ActiveSync account needed for Traveler and all sort of other settings.
BES10 and Playbook devices can also be connected directly to a Traveler server using ActiveSync.
When using BES10 and Playbook devices or the BES10 Server leveraging ActiveSync access you need Traveler 9 running on a Domino 9 server.
Both are planned to ship end of March 2013.
I hope this clarifies a bit how this new offering from Blackberry will work together with IBM Notes Traveler
Taking full benefit of RAM for File-System Cache with Domino on W64
Thu, Mar 13th 2014 6:10a Daniel Nashed A long time ago I already blogged about the changes IBM introduced for the file-system cache. And I ran into this in customer situations many times. I have described it in my IBM Connect session but because I got questions about it again, I think it makes sense to mention it again. The default settings they implemented might impact you when you add a lot of RAM to your Domino server. We have seen dramatical reduction of read I/O when adding a lot of RAM to the Windows machine because Wind [read] Keywords: domino

Custom Commands in Domino Start Script
Fri, Jan 17th 2014 5:12a Daniel Nashed Most of the new functionality in my start scripts is based on my own ideas and requests I get from customer projects. For each of the request for new functionality I am trying to find out a way to make it as customizable as possible to make it fit for different customer environments. On the other side there are still requests which are very customer specific which I cannot build into a standard script. But I also would like to keep the script in a maintainable mode where you have only to sw [read] Keywords: domino
