Traveler 9.0.1.15 available with some important changes

Traveler 9.0.1.15 has been released with some important fixes and also changes. The Release documentation has some interesting details.

Here is the extract from the release documentation with some comments.

What's New


"Device wipe is no longer an option for iOS 10.x devices as support was dropped by Apple. You can still use the Wipe Traveler Data option."

For security reasons Apple disabled wipe over ActiveSync which is understandable. Before that change every server could wipe any device connected via ActiveSync.
With this Apple side change Traveler could not delete the device any more and the status from the device was not interpreted correctly by the server.
Traveler does now check if the device still supports the wipe (running iOS earlier than 10.x) and does only allow the Data Wipe over ActiveSync if the full wipe is not supported on the device.


"Yellow status message if the IBM Traveler server is not listed as a Trusted Server for an end user's mail server. This is required for future security and feature enhancements planned for 2017. The status message will include information about how to correct."

Sounds like IBM is planning a bigger change in 2017 for Traveler. I am curious what this higher security requirements are needed for. Trusted Servers are a quite high requirement which allow the Traveler servers to fully authenticate as any user on the mail server. It's much higher than just granting manager access to an individual mailfile.

I have removed the Trusted Servers entry on my mail-server but I did not yet see the warning.

"Database schema updates to improve data integrity.

Tablerepair tell command to support the above schema updates. A warning message will be displayed at startup if any of the schema updates were not applied with instructions to run the tablerepair command. The server will continue to function properly if no action taken.


NOTE: IBM Traveler 9.0.1.15 does include a database schema update. Action may be required if you manually manage your database schema (this is not common). If you use auto schema updates (default behavior) there is no action required. See Updating the Enterprise Database for more information (http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSYRPW_9.0.1/UpdatingTheEnterpriseDatabase.dita)"


So this is an important information. This new version requires a schema change. If you are running stand-alone that should not cause any issues.
If you have automatic schema update enabled the schema update should also happen automatically.
And if you are switching from manual schema update to automatic schema update you should be careful. There is one ARPA fixed for DB2 and you should be aware of the default schema name differences for manual and automatic schema configuration.

I guess with this schema change the issue has been discovered and the fix is that the NTS parameter with the schema name will be automatically set.
(See -> http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1LO90497 for details).


The fix-list contains some other important fixes! Check the fixlist link below for details.

My server is already updated but I had not much time to test.

After my post I got a couple of offline and online questions about details for JVM 1.8 in the Notes Client. The release notes will be update but here is the comment from Scott in case you missed it in the comments. Thanks Scott for this detailed additonal information!!! Java Upgrade to 1.8. The Java run time environment provided with Domino has been upgraded to Java JRE version 1.8 to provide you with access to the latest features. - This is actually both Notes & Domino.

IBM Notes/Domino 9.0.1 Feature Pack 8 Preliminary Release Notice

Today IBM released the first official information about Feature Pack 8 for Notes and Domino 9.0.1 The Preliminary Release Notice provides detailed information about the first feature pack which is currently listed with status "gold candidate". http://www.lotus.com/ldd/fixlist.nsf/8d1c0550e6242b69852570c900549a74/26aa7417bb60f7df852580b40072af2d Here are the release notes, with some comments from my side.

Notes 9.0.1 FP7 IF1 released
Thu, Dec 8th 2016 3:59p   Daniel Nashed
There is a new IF1 for the Notes Client. Now it begins to be more complicated. The client IF1 and the server IF1 for the Linux issue (see previous posts) have nothing to do with each other and contain different SPRs. The most important fix is the issue we had with ID vault when the new port encryption is used. Given that the SPR is fixed in the client this looks like a client issue and not a server issue. -- Daniel Notes 9.0.1 Fix Pack 7 Interim Fix 1 RGAUADUM59 Duplica

IBM Domino 9.0.1 Fix Pack 7 Interim Fix 1 addresses critical issues affecting Domino 9.0.1 FP7 for Linux64 & zLinux64
Fri, Oct 14th 2016 9:08a   Daniel Nashed
As reported before on Linux64 there is a issue with the cluster replicator which has been addressed with IF1 (SPR #KBRNAEMPX2). Because of a change in FP7 that needed a recompile of the whole core including all components (SPR# KBRN9Q7EZW) but some files where missing in the installations. IBM has fixed the issue with 9.0.1 FP7 IF1 which is already available for download. I got it already yesterday for testing thru our PMR and it replaces the missing files.

Domino 9.0.1 FP7 issue Notes User Id File Upload To Vault Failed If Port_enc_adv Parameter Is Enabled
Wed, Oct 12th 2016 6:45a   Daniel Nashed
Alex Novak mentioned another issue with FP7 which might affect you in my blog comments. We only have the public description of the SPR and I assume only the ID Vault server communication is affected. SPR # BBSZAEEK8C APAR #LO90429.: Notes User Id File Upload To Vault Failed If Port_enc_adv Parameter Is Enabled So for now you should not enable the new AES encryption on your ID Vault server until this issue is fixed. Given the 3 issues I reported in the last days in my blog (one is on

Cluster replicator hang with 9.0.1 FP7 on Linux64
Wed, Oct 12th 2016 6:32a   Daniel Nashed
There is another issue (SPR #RSOIAEME5L) that might affect you when running with Linux64 and 9.0.1 FP7. Due to the change in FP7 on Linux64 (SPR# KBRN9Q7EZW) all server binaries needed to be updated in FP7. It turned out that some binaries have not been replaced by the FP7 installer. In this case the cluster replicator task wasn't updated. Because of the change of internal structures this causes issues with older core servertasks in Domino (business partner applications using the public C-

CD to MIME Conversion Issue in 9.0.1 FP7 generating Javascript for sections
Mon, Oct 10th 2016 4:41a   Daniel Nashed
We ran into an issue at a customer on Friday. Today we got the confirmation that it is a bug and development is already looking into this. It looks like a low level issue when converting Richtext into MIME in mails on server side. In my test I have seen than probably all server based conversions are affected. Clients sending MIME message directly do not show this issue. When the server converts a message to MIME JavaScript is generated for collapsible sections (for example when you reply t
