Tip on using BES Transporter
David Brown    

BES Transporter is a powerful tool included in the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Resource Kit.

I recently used BES Transporter to move active users from a 4.1.6 customer-managed BES to a 5.0.3 BES hosted at a GBS datacenter.  The beauty is that the users were unaware that the move even happened.  They did not have to wipe or reactivate their devices as part of the process.

However, in the pilot phase, I did encounter one glitch that even stumped RIM support.

Suffice to say, you can create replicas of user state databases before you run the Transporter process. If you do this, be sure to add:

<add key="SkipDominoBBSDReplication" value="true"/>

to the <appSettings> section of the EnterpriseTransporter.exe.config file.

However, do not be tempted to make BlackBerryProfiles.nsf a replica on each server.

Ensure that each BlackBerry Enterprise Server has its own (non-replica) BlackBerry Profiles Database (BlackBerryProfiles.nsf). If you believe you have a need for that database to be a replica on both servers, you MUST permanently cease replication of BlackBerryProfiles.nsf before the first user is run through the Transporter process.

One reason you should not replicate this database between servers is because there is a cleanup process that runs each morning at 3 AM that deletes the state database for any user that has been moved.  This cleanup makes sense on the "old" server, but you certainly would not want that to happen on the "new" server, too.

Disable SMTP-AUTH to stop relay hackers in their tracks
Tue, Nov 26th 2013 8:16a   David Brown
Sometimes setting up a system to allow password authentication is less secure. Ever notice activity like this on your SMTP-enabled Domino server? SMTP Server: Authentication failed for user guest ; connecting host 46.137.108.26 SMTP Server: Authentication failed for user backup ; connecting host 46.137.108.26 etc. Guess what... In this case, I am not happy that ec2-46-137-108-26.eu-west-1.compute.amazonaws.com (Amazon Web Services, Ireland) thinks they need to relay SMTP through my se [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus bleedyellow bleedyellow.com password server smtp

Ok. I saw this bug mentioned in the Technote explaining the compact -REPLICA options but forgot that it wouldn't be fixed in any of the 8.5.3 HFs (including 8.5.3FP3 HF324) So, if you are tempted to run something like "load compact -REPLICA -IDS_FULL=80"... you should actually run "load compact -REPLICA -IDS_FULL 080" You could also specify "load compact -REPLICA -IDS_FULL=080" Even if the database is not over the 80% threshold (as specified in the example above), ther [read] Keywords: administration ibm ldd lotus ods bug database java

PIRC added the "Design Modification TimeDate" the database. It is updated in the database whenever design refresh or replace is run and makes an update. Does anyone know where I can find the "Design Modification TimeDate" field and/or property? Is it available in the Designer client or only via NotesPeek or? Thanks. [read] Keywords: database

Shamelessly grabbed directly from the help file... Destination Server Name/IP - IP address or hostname that receives email after the spam and virus scans. It is usually best to use a hostname rather than an IP address so that the destination mail server can be moved and DNS updated at any time without any changes to the Barracuda Spam & Virus Firewall. Note: If you set Use MX Records below to Yes, you must enter a domain name for this field. If multiple servers are specified, then the [read] Keywords: apple email server virus

Registering new users with PIRC enabled by default

In the process of enabling PIRC (http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?ca=kb&rs=899&uid=swg21501675), it occurs to me that there doesn't seem to be a direct way of PIRC-enabling the new file upon mail database creation. Sure it is easy enough to set the advanced property for all databases in a directory, etc, but that is only as good as the moment you do that.
