Windows 10 support for Notes - it’s supported on 9.0.1 FP4
Thu, Jul 30th 2015 12:49p   Darren Duke
I had asked IBM to get out a head for Windows 10 but alas nothing came of it. So then yesterday I went the public route (strange how that works but the "official channels" don't eh?): Again I ask, what is the official IBM stance on Windows 10 with regards to IBM Notes? @IBM_ICSsupport— Darren Duke (@darrenduke) July 29, 2015 So today the fine folks that run the @IBM_ICSsupport account responded: @darrenduke Here's an update about Notes & Windows 10 support - https

SOLUTION - Domino Directory Assistance to Active Directory when using SSL DOES NOT break with 9.0.1 FP4
Thu, Jul 16th 2015 7:33a   Darren Duke
In my last post I made a mistake. I made the mistake of believing that R9 changed something for the better that it apparently does not, and that when the product gets updated. so do the tools. My bad. Basically I'm moron. First the good news, Domino 9.0.1 FP4 does work with Active Directory 2012 with TLS1.2. Woohoo. I was under the impression that you could now cross certify an internet certificate into the Domino Directory and it would now be trusted. I could have sworn I read this some

Domino Directory Assistance to Active Directory when using SSL breaks with 9.0.1 FP4
Wed, Jul 15th 2015 8:07a   Darren Duke
DA and AD's....how could this not get confusing? Over the past few days I've been working to figure out why 9.0.1 FP4 can no longer connect to Active Directory when using a SSL connection for the LDAP connection from Domino. Specifically this is AD 2012 but I would guess the same issues hit 2012 R2. Not sure about 2008. Like this: Anyway, what worked in 9.0.1 FP3 no longer worked after an upgrade to 9.0.1 FP4. After much testing it appears that Windows 2012 servers really doesn't li

Do IBM test any of their stuff anymore? IBM Mobile Connect installation woes
Wed, Jul 8th 2015 8:26a   Darren Duke
IBM apparently have unlimited budget for renaming, re-branding products and acquiring analytics cloud companies, but as we all know if you put in a PMR and it gets routed to the Philippines then you basically give up They no longer value support. Now it seems as if basic testing has gone the way of Filipino support. While there have been some epic FUBAR's by IBM of late (renaming the Android Traveler app to Verse for example) this is a more basic problem. Installing their software. Now, I

MWLUG is less than 8 weeks away, your chance to see two of the best IBM presenters on the planet (and maybe a TWiL)
Mon, Jun 29th 2015 12:42p   Darren Duke
That's right, it's only eight weeks away. And it's in Atlanta, so it'll be very, very easy to get to. Not only do you get over 50 sessions for $50 (yeah, $50....not. a. typo) but you will get to see, in person, two of the best presenters IBM have (not to mention an OGS guest speaker who I can't name right now, but who knock your socks off). Richard has already mentioned he OGS IBM speakers, we've all seen Kramer (not to disrespect Kramer though), but the one of the two speakers I'm ex

I'd forgot about the LastPass hack until I read Mitch's post this morning. I also had this appear in my Twitter stream the other day: LastPass just got hacked, so it's time to change your password: http://t.co/w5uz4TCR24 pic.twitter.com/wZ8uFKQMtn— Mashable (@mashable) June 16, 2015 I didn't give it much though. I use a password manager but it ain't the famous ones. I don't like the idea of someone else storing my list of God-like credentials. OK, I use two services

Good news - Domino (at least 9.0.1) does not seem to be affected by the LogJam TLS vuln
Wed, May 20th 2015 2:23p   Darren Duke
Another week, another SSL/TLS security vulnerability. This one is termed Logjam (read about it here http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/05/20/logjam_johns_hopkins_cryptoboffin_ids_next_branded_bug). Luckily a site has already been created to test your web servers, it is available at https://weakdh.org/sysadmin.html. A quick test of a Domino 9.0.1 server with the latest IF and the perfect forward secrecy server-side notes.ini settings enabled (see this previous blog post for those settings) y

MWLUG rolls into the ATL - August 19-21 2015
Thu, May 7th 2015 11:26a   Darren Duke
I swear I voted for somewhere other than Atlanta.....no, really I did. Anyway, even thought it is technically called the Midwest User Group anyone can (and should) attend. So if you are in the Southeast you have no rational reason to not attend. If you use any of the IBM collaboration technologies this a conference you should have on your schedule. "But Darren, I can't get $1,500 approved to attend a conference". That's fine. It's only $50. Yes Fifty. I didn't miss off a zero. So now

Do you subscribe to the IBM daily product update newletter? Part deux - or why renaming your products sucks
Fri, Apr 10th 2015 11:00a   Darren Duke
A few years ago I wrote about how to subscribe to the daily IBM product update newsletter. A few days ago some one asks me if I still used this service. I thought I did, but on recollection I hadn't gotten an email from them in ages (or "yonks" for a more technical definition). At first I thought it was getting stuck in spam.....nope. Hummm. OK Let me log in a see.... I had no subscriptions listed. None. Nada. Ziltch. WTF? So I started adding in my subscriptions again and realized that

TLS 1.2 in Domino and the settings I use
Mon, Apr 6th 2015 8:20a   Darren Duke
Unless you have been living under a rock somewhere you no doubt know that IBM finally gave use TLS 1.2 for IBM Domino servers. This means that Domino servers can now use SSLv3, TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.2. But it's IT, so just because you can does not mean you should......for example I would suggest most servers (I'll get the outliers further down the page) would probably want SSLv3 disabled. If you have been under a rock, then you need Domino 9.0.1 FP3 IF2 to get this new goodness. Now this fix is
