iNotes and IE11 - yes it is supported

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, get the fix from Fix Central, here's a Windows Domino server link
:
http://www-933.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/swg/quickorder?parent=ibm%7ELotus&product=ibm/Lotus/Lotus+iNotes&release=9.0.1.0&platform=Windows&function=all&source=fc

There are three files on the ZIP file:
  • Run the executable, as you would a fix pack
  • Copy the CAB file to the /data/domino/html folder, replacing the one that is there (take a backup if you are)
  • Copy the NSF to the /data/iNotes folder, replacing the one that is there (take a backup if you are)
  • Restart the server, bask in the glow that is IE11 (alright, that was a joke).....

There is also an IBM TechNote that lists iNotes support by browser and Domino version, http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21426680 although it only goes up to Firefox 26.....surely we're up to 103 by now no? ;)

One would hope that Domino 9.0 and 8.5.3 would get IE11 support too......As the great Beyonce would have said "if you want, you should have put a PMR on it"

Domino NIFNSF update - you probably don’t want to enable it
Fri, Mar 31st 2017 2:33p   Darren Duke
In my last post about NIFNSF, Christian Hensler left this comment: I couldn't find anything on the internet, so off I went to the Design Partner forum. Now this is a NDA'd so I'm maybe skirting the rules here, but there is indeed an IBM reproduced issue with performance with NIFNSF. So this AM I did some testing and I was able to reproduce the issue. Base on my testing, on average, the current NIFNSF implementation is twice as slow as non-NIFNSF databases. So you many not want to impl

Moving Domino NIF indexes out of the NSF
Wed, Mar 29th 2017 4:16p   Darren Duke
New in Fix Pack Feature Pack 8 is the ability to move the view index files out of the NSF. NIF is the technical term for these index files and end with the file suffix of NDX. Doing this has several advantages including: Make the NSF smaller, so better backup times Help get more out of the 64GB limit....if 6GB of your NSF is NIF index, that's a logt of space Move NIF's to better performing storage, for example SSD's Allows concurrent access to to databases and views, so theoretically better

2016 the annus horribilis review

Firefox started at 43, ended at 50 (they are slowing down....) Chrome started at 47, ended at 55 (they are speeding up....) IE....you know what? F**k IE. Still using Chrome as my primary browser, although Vivaldi is slowly taking over Didn't go Connect 16. Won't be at Connect 17. I already know what's going to happen....IBM is going to tell you about all the products that they promise * cognitive* is being added too. Like Verse (2 years ago?) and Toscana.

Renewing LetsEncrypt SSL certificates automatically with NginX
Fri, Dec 9th 2016 4:06p   Darren Duke
A while back I blogged that I switched the SSL on this blog to Let's Encypt, the free SSL provider. I even linked to the Crontab post I used to renew the SSL certificate (they are only good for 90 days, so need to be renewed regularly). Except mine would not renew. Hum.... I eventually got around to looking at this before the certificate ran out on Dec 20th and it turns out I needed to do a few more steps. If you manually run the renew.sh on the server without these additional steps thi

WTF? A new podcast? If you liked This Week In Lotus, you should (at least) like ’WTF Tech’
Mon, Oct 31st 2016 10:14a   Darren Duke
A long time ago, before IBM came down like a hammer, there was a podcast. We really enjoyed doing This Week In Lotus, but it became a bit untenable as IBM threatened all kinds of stuff (including revoking *my* Champion status.....) so we stopped. But IBM kept doing "WTF?" kinds of things.....canceling 9.0.2, going to fix packs only, spreading Java 8 out over a year (from now). After getting together at MWLUG, Stuart and I started to reminisce and we started thinking about saddling up again.

Switched to Let’s Encrypt for the blog SSL certificate
Wed, Sep 21st 2016 12:25p   Darren Duke
I had switched the blog to SSL a while back (mainly due to Google threatening that non-SSL website will take a hit in searches). At the time Let's Encrypt (the free, yes free, CA SSL issuer) was just getting started and didn't have roots published to most of the browser root stores. Because of this I went with free certificate available from Start SSL. I'm not disappointed with StartSSL, it's just time to try something else when the StartSSL certificate expired. In fact if you need anything

iNotes and IE Standards mode now seems to work in 9.0.1 FP7
Wed, Sep 14th 2016 10:28a   Darren Duke
I had praised, then lamented the new-ish iNotes forms templates that allow you do copy and paste images from the clipboard into IE. Well, with FP7 IBM (so far) seem to have addressed the issue search issue that forced me to disable this again. It's now back on for my servers. Let's see how long before I lament this again. It is probably work pointing out that Ulrich Krause is reporting issues with the "normal" iNotes forms9.nsf shipped in FP7. I have not seen the issue he reported in t

9.0.1 FP7 and how to enable the new port encryption settings
Wed, Sep 14th 2016 4:59a   Darren Duke
9.0.1 FP7 has shipped. It's not all we hoped (only three new features, and no Java 8) but yet again the Domino security team has added stuff, this time the oft requested update to Notes client port encryption. But (at the time of writing) all the technotes on how to enable this either go to the wrong page (ICCA) or a nice looking, but still pointless 404 page. So how do you enable this? We'll after scouring the design partner forum I found a post from the lovely Dave Kern that outlined thi

Using Hawthorn gold code? Want IBM to add SQL Server support? Here’s the SPR you’ll want to add your name to....
Mon, Aug 29th 2016 2:09p   Darren Duke
Hawthrorn 2.0, AKA IBM Mail Support for Microsoft Outlook, AKA IMSMO has recently been released. One of the main install differences between GA (2.0) and LA (1.0) code is that GA requires use of IBM DB2 as a state store for the IMSMO Domino server (whereas 1.0 had no such requirement). Most organizations can count on the fingers of no hands how may DB2 servers they have, so you'd expect IBM to support MS SQL server right? You'd be wrong. You along with me are a moron, and no one's ever ask
