Available on Fix Central and containing the following fixes:
A document upgraded from 8.2 which displays as an Upload in Connectors changes to a Page icon when checked out via the Connectors.
With a customer specific place, searching the place resulted in either no results found or garbage was displayed in the search results.
When using Tivoli Access Manager (TAM), Pages with attachments are not being saved giving the message "Page was not saved due to an error".
When a member of a Place is also a member of a large number of LDAP groups, that user does not see any members listed in the Members page.
Policies to Warn or Lock places based on inactivity of the place do not trigger if the server is part of a cluster with the following qpconfig setting enabled: <always_update_using_master_cluster_server="true"/>
If a user modifies a List and that user is different than who created the List, the Last Modified information isn’t updated with the current modifier’s name.
Unable to edit or save imported Microsoft Office documents in a wiki place after upgrading to Quickr FixPack 25.
When Quickr is set up with Domino Native Authentication, searching for names in the Add Members page does not respect the Person or Group radio button.
If a member of a place copies the URL for a preview and then logs out, that URL may still display the preview. (see fix DTRR8RKLCA in “Additional Information for special fixes” section)
'qptool changemember' does not update the user's display name after being run.
If a imported Microsoft Office document from Quickr 8.2 was replaced or renamed using Quickr 8.5.x before FixPack 25, after upgrading to FixPack 25, that imported document may not be available in connectors and may not have it's preview shown in the browser client.
When editing Microsoft Office document checked out via Connectors and from the Office application choosing "Save As" and saved to a different name but within the same directory as the checked out document, you can no longer access the document from Connectors.
In a customer specific environment, not all of the customer's places were being shown in the "Add Place" Connector dialog.
When a List item contains an ampersand (&) a document using that List will not load.
In a customer specific place, the customer cannot remove a version of a document.
Custom HTML forms are not mapped correctly when publishing to FileNet. (see fix DWHN8NEGEV in "Additional Information for special fixes" section)
Wiki response page links within Search Results cannot be opened when searching the place.
Using a Custom Form with an Options control, if you create a document and select an item in the list and then later modify the Custom Form to not include that item. The document will have the wrong item selected.
An email sent from Lotus Notes to a Quickr Mail In database displays as text but also displays html attributes.
When importing a file via ActiveX, if you replace that file, the preview will display both the old and new file previews.
Customer does not want qptool upgrade to add Anonymous to the ACL if they have removed it. *please note: this fix requires notes.ini setting QuickPlaceDoNotAddAnonymousToACL=1
If a Quickr 8.5 place is not listed in the PlaceCatalog, cannot load the place with a direct URL.
When using the SOAP / REST APIs, creating a draft of a Page and adding content to the body of the page and checking in resulted in the body not to be saved.
So Domino and SHA2.....There’s a SPR for that
Wed, Aug 20th 2014 7:20a Darren Duke As some of you know, SHA2 support in the native Domino HTTP stack has been a bit of a fire starter of late. As IBM like to say "we've not heard that from our customers", here's your chance to change that. How do you do that? Simple, if you are able to create a PMR against Domino (if you're on support for Notes and Domino you can) and mention that you want SPR # ABAI7SASE6 (APAR LO48388) addressed. Here's link to the IBM support portal, so head on over there and create an PMR via an Elec [read] Keywords: domino
My customers don’t want Mail.Next
Tue, Aug 19th 2014 11:30a Darren Duke I have customers ranging from names you have heard of, to a few hundred seats, to 5 or less. I’m pretty sure that most customers I come into contact with are not on IBM’s radar. A few maybe, but most? Not so much. Some of them occasionally ask about “mail.next” but none are excited. You see, these customers are not cutting edge. They are not chasing the next shiny ball of tinfoil. They cherish stability. Not constant change. Not constant “vaporware” demos of stuff that most think f [read] Keywords: administration
How did I not know this feature of Windows existed? AKA - a useful tip
Fri, Aug 8th 2014 8:13a Darren Duke With a little over 18 months since I've had to produce weekly tips, you've most likely missed my gems (OK, some weren't gems, but you get what you pay for).... Anyway, this one is a gem, and I'm sure most of you know this but I surely did not. On any Windows folder, hold down the Shift key and right click you get these additional options added to your context bar: If you do anything with Websphere on Windows this will no doubt save you a ton of time, Again, how did I not know [read] Keywords: websphere
Addendum to my Domino DBMT post (well, a correction)
Tue, Apr 8th 2014 5:50a Darren Duke I'm also going to update the original post, but it appears there was an issue with the command in that original post: -compactThreads 0 -updallThreads 2 -stoptime 5AM You will see something like this in the notes.log on the server: use this one instead: -compactThreads 0 -updallThreads 2 -stoptime 5:00AM Yes, the ":00" makes all the difference.

ATLUG Day of Champions - a who’s who of smart people all in one place
Mon, Mar 24th 2014 11:15a Darren Duke So it has happened....yours truly is going to be a [non-IBM] Champion.....well for a day ;) The Atlanta User Group (aka Atlanta Lotus User Group) is to host a pretty unique one-of-a-kind event on April 7th, 2014, that being the "Day of Champions". Each of the 11 "champions" gets a TED like 18 minutes or so to entertain, bedazzle and hopefully educate the attendees in all manner of things, technical or not-so-technical. Add to that a Connect-like Gurupalooza and speed-geeking and [read] Keywords: ibm
On Domino 9? Have a cluster? You’re using DBMT right?
Wed, Mar 19th 2014 7:43a Darren Duke So with the release of Domino 9, IBM added the Database Maintenance Tool (or DBMT). This new tool is a bit like a Swiss Army knife of server tasks. It can run compact, updall and full text index tasks all from one command. But for some server environments (I'm thinking clusters using archived transaction logging here) all you really want is to have view indexed rebuilt so that is a user if failed over (or 100's of users fail over) then there is no delay while all these mail file view indexe [read] Keywords: admin
iNotes and IE11 - yes it is supported
Tue, Mar 18th 2014 8:39a Darren Duke IE11 has been out for a while and with the likes of Google saying IE9 will no longer supported on their stuff, more and more organizations and people are moving to it. The thing with iNotes is that fixes may or may not be in a Domino Fix Pack. They may be in a completely separate download. You have to select "iNotes" as the product in Fix Central. To support IE11 with iNotes you need to be at Domino 9.0.1 with iNotes fix 9.0.1 IF1 or higher (IF2 is now available to go with that). Anyway, [read] Keywords: domino
When installing ESXi be sure to get your server’s customized installer
Tue, Mar 18th 2014 7:59a Darren Duke I do a lot of VMware. Seriously, a lot! A common thread I see with virtualization deployments is that soon-to-be-virtualizers download the ISO from VMware and rock and roll. But wait. There is a better way! No, really there is. But for most folks it's unknown. Until now..... Almost all server hardware manufactures have a customized version built specifically for their iron. Usually this involves adding drivers and monitoring stuff, but if you've ever tried installing a CIM package, then yo [read] Keywords: ibm
