Will the session be completely locked down? Who knows. Still after the furore of the last week or so I figured I'd get my questions out in public so as not to appear a "negative Nancy". For the record I think Lotus developers, managers and executives should use the exact same version of Notes that you sell.
When will I be able to invite others to a meeting that I'm a participant in? I occasionally have minions others I need with me on trips to client sites, conf calls, etc. Adding them now is a bitch.
Quickr Utility Express - or equivalent. Several (now rotated out) executives and PMs have promised this in the past. What is so hard to understand here? Do you guys not want to sell to SMBs? (my definition of SMBs, not IBM)
Sametime on a single box.
Sametime reflector. When? This is killing you. And I cannot recommend this product to my customers until you fix this long running over-sight.
Connections on a single box. I know IBM sells server, but really, should I have to buy all the IBM servers?
Websphere has socket licensing, why not Domino/Connections/Sametime et al?
Come on spill the beans.....Vulcan "is a product" and runs on Websphere right?
What is IBM doing to solve the Fubar'd LotusLive ordering process?
You never know, some of these may get answered well before the scheduled session on Thursday at 11:15 (ASK102). If not, I consider this fair warning of the types of questions that a PM should be prepared to answer.
POODLE and SHA2 support coming to Domino
Tue, Oct 21st 2014 9:02a Darren Duke Behold, the silence has ended.....the crescendo that is IBM has finally lifted the veil on some fixes for some very large security holes....AFAIK these are native Domino fixes. I'm unsure of the protocols supported, but my understanding is all of them, but only time will tell. These are not available yet, but should be in "weeks"... First up, fix POODLE outlined in Technote 1687167. This is coming to: 9.0.1 FP2 9.0 8.5.3 FP6 8.5.2 FP4 8.5.1 FP5 I think that is every supported Domino [read] Keywords: domino
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.
