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.

Notes Client 9.0.1 FP9 F1 released
Sat, Oct 14th 2017 5:31p   Daniel Nashed
There is also a client IF1 for 9.0.1 FP9 which fixes one part of the issue that I reported. Depending on your configuration MIME messages sent did show up with different fonts on Notes clients. It happened in edit mode or when the embedded MIME browser was disabled. What has been fixed is that the IF1 client shows correct fronts. But earlier clients still shows different fonts (for example if you send a mail with sans serif it will show up in serif). I don't know if that can be fixed at

Domino 9.0.1 FP 9 IF2 available with important fixes
Fri, Oct 13th 2017 9:09a   Daniel Nashed
Two of the issues fixed in IF2 have been discussed before in my blog. But there are also two other critical issues fixed. Some of my customers reported DBMT and updall hangs which have been fixed with TDOOAREP8W. And the Private on first use folder issue also has been reported before. If you have installed 9.0.1 FP 9 you should update to IF2! -- Daniel JPAIAQ5SKW PANIC: DbMarkCorrupt! (d:notefileadmin4.nsf Dbiid: 0x3D91E116 0x3C07FE17) JVEKAQSGCC S

Installing C-API Applications on Linux
Wed, Oct 4th 2017 11:51a   Daniel Nashed
When installing binaries on Linux you have to be aware of the directory structure for the files installed in the opt directory. For installing a servertask the recommended way is to copy it to the Domino binary directory and create a start link. For myself I created a script that handles installation of servertasks and extension managers because I don't want to do those steps manually and my script comes with a wrapper script that benefits of sudo when installing binaries on my developmen

Known issues with Domino 9.0.1 FP9
Wed, Sep 27th 2017 3:38a   Daniel Nashed
A couple of customers and partners asked me about current known issues with FP9 in my blog and offline. Beside the issue with the garbage chars fixed in IF1 there are 3 other issues that could prevent you from upgrading to FP9. There is an issue with private on first use views and folders on the server side which prevents those views and folders to be created. IBM has a hotfix for this as Sascha already reported in my blog comments. SPR# JVEKAQSGCC / LO92948: SHARED, PRIVATE ON FIRST USE

Fix Available: SMTP regression issue in Domino 9.0.1 FP9 can cause malformed headers
Fri, Sep 15th 2017 11:43p   Daniel Nashed
Finally we got IF1 for 9.0.1 FP9 for the issue I reported in an earlier blog post . The regression was introduced by a fix that IBM has removed in IF1 (and I got a hotfix earlier as mentioned in an earlier blog post). The root cause is an issue with malformed headers -- specially the from header that are generated at message itemization. Depending on your configuration this causes garbage chars in your headers. In any case some functionality like SMTPVerifyAuthenticatedSender=1 or capt

Domino Performance issue on some Linux Versions
Thu, Sep 14th 2017 10:13a   Daniel Nashed
When working on a larger Domino migration and consolidation project I ran into an new Linux specific performance issues that might hit some of you depending on your Linux version. I have tested with current RHEL 7 servers which are not affected. But on customer site we are using the latest patch level of RHEL 6.9 and I have also seen it with SLES 11 SP2/3. I did not yet test with SLES 12 (maybe someone volunteers to do some testing). There has been an issue in the 8.5.3 code stream which ha

How to resolve synchronization issues that start after upgrading to IBM Traveler 9.0.1.18 (or higher)
Sat, Sep 9th 2017 9:21a   Daniel Nashed
If you are running on Traveler 9.0.1.18 and higher you should read the following support flash technote in detail. http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg22005703 You must read this technote if you are running on 9.0.1.18 and higher. And with this new information it makes a lot of sense to move to this new version soon. As mentioned before, IBM changed the default security mode for Traveler. Traveler uses a run as user feature to ensure that all functionality is invoked in th

We have been waiting for Traveler 9.0.1.19 for some important fixes and also updates SQL server support and push certificate update: Support for MS SQL Server 2016 Enterprise Edition. Updated APNS Certificates with expiration 8/1/2018. Improvements for the Run as User Feature. But the most important changes are for the "Run as User" Feature which has been introduced in 9.0.1.18. Some of my customers and issues with Traveler profiles which could not be read correctly in some cases.

SSLV3 disabled by default since 9.0.1 FP9
Tue, Sep 5th 2017 2:18p   Daniel Nashed
This change has been discussed a while ago. Now it was finally time to disable default SSLv3 in Domino. The SPR did not make it into the fixlist. Thanks Thibaud Maes for your mail! The change addressed by SPR # DKENAKNSEG will affect all connection types that utilise the native Domino security stack such as HTTPS and secure DIIOP. If you still need SSLv3 you need this new notes.ini parameter ENABLE_SSLV3=1 There are not many applications left that need SSLV3 ... Daniel
