Idea - I’m going to open a PMR asking IBM to release 9.0.2....and you are invited to take part

iNotes and IE11 - yes it is supported

The other day I was lamenting the inability of Internet Explorer in respect to being able to copy and paste an image from the clipboard into an iNotes email body. After all both Firefox and Chrome have been able to do this for a while.

Off I toodle to the web and I find this IBM document which indicates IBM may add it once IE supports it:

The ability to paste images from the clipboard works in both Firefox and Chrome in iNotes 9.0 Social Edition and Smart Cloud Notes Web. Safari 6 and IE 10 do not yet support this, but we are hoping they too will offer the needed browser APIs to do this in the future.


Huh. "I'm pretty sure IE11 now supports this", out intrepid hero says to himself (that's me for those not following along). Off I wibbly wobbly search again. Lo and behold, based on this Microsoft post I appear to be correct (and dear reader, if there were any doubt in you mind that I would, indeed be correct, I'm sorely disappointed in you):

With the new DataURI encoding capability in IE11, Web sites can automatically support pasting images from the clipboard, without requiring additional Javascript.


OK, ammo in hand. Time for the dreaded PMR.....basically along the lines of "IBM have these links that say this....what are you going to do it?".

After a back and forth support finally understand my question. And shocker. it was added in 9.0.1 FP5. "Really?" our intrepid hero asks (again, me for those not following along). But it's disabled by default (FFS IBM, really?). I was also sent a link to the 9.0.1 FP5 IBM document (are they not technotes anymore????) that has this titbit in it:

9.0.1 Fix Pack 5 adds support for IE Standards Mode for iNotes. An optional Forms9s.nsf for IE 11 Standard mode has been added in 9.0.1 FP5. 9.0.1 FP5 installs a secondary iNotes client file on the Domino server named Forms9s.nsf. This file is an optional solution to "Quirks Mode". Quirks mode was a run time option first introduced in IE 6 to provide backward compatibility for programs such as iNotes but can cause some limitations running in newer versions of IE such as IE11. Forms9s.nsf removes quirks mode and runs in Standard mode. This is off by default and can be enabled via setting these in the Domino server notes.ini
iNotes_WA_DefaultFormsFile=iNotes/Forms9s.nsf
iNotes_WA_FormsFiles=iNotes/Forms9s.nsf


Well, OK, but that doesn't say it will do what I want but support insist it will have the desired effect. Sure enough, I add them to the server, restart HTTP and (blue sky, angels singing) I can now paste images from the clipboard directly into iNotes when using IE.

Thanks to Andrea from support for help on this, but why on earth isn't this documented anywhere? "Standards mode" in no way translates to "copy and paste an image from the clipboard into IE". And the original IBM document I found (the first link in the post) was not updated to indicate this. This needs to be added to DCT (if DCT is still a thing?).

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

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
