iNotes password idiosyncrasy
David Brown    

 
 Have you ever experienced a situation where a user changes their Notes password and then their Internet Password never updates, even though Internet Password Updates are otherwise working correctly?
 
 One thing to check is if the user just happened to use the "(" character when they updated their Notes password.

Why would that matter?  Well, because "(" isn't a valid character to use at the start of your Internet Password.

Now, you probably wouldn't see this in the server log or DDM or anywhere else after the user has made the change that ends up breaking the Internet Password.  But, sure enough, ask the user and you may very well find out that they used that character at the beginning of their new Notes password (which, unless you have specifically prevented that character in a custom password policy).
 
 With that in mind, does anyone know if there is a definitive list of similarly prohibited characters for iNotes passwords?

Smart Upgrade Pattern Detection
Tue, Sep 23rd 2014 1:10p   David Brown
I've noticed what I believe to be an inaccuracy in the oldie but goodie Understanding Lotus Notes Smart Upgrade Redpaper. The pattern matching example on Page 29 says that * matches anything- including nothing. The most commonly used wildcards and expressions are * and ?; for example: Release 6.5.4* would match: – Release 6.5.4 – Release 6.5.4FP1 – Release 6.5.4FP2 – Release 6.5.4FP3 – Release 6.5.4HF719 However, [read] Keywords: ibm lotus notes smart upgrade

Disabling Java Updates
Fri, May 30th 2014 11:12a   David Brown
I've had recent reason to not want Java to update. There is a setting that is supposed to allow me to turn off the feature, but it would not let me save the setting. Google to the rescue. Here is how to get the setting to stick: For Windows 7, The Java Control Panel needs Admin rights. Navigate to where Java is installed, usually something along these lines: C:Program Files (x86)Javajre7bin Then scroll down till you see: javacpl.exe Right click on it and select "Run as Administr [read] Keywords: admin google java

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 Design Modification TimeDate Location

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

Configuring a Barracuda for round-robin or failover
Fri, Sep 21st 2012 2:09p   David Brown
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
