Domino Server on Raspberry Pi

I have a Domino server which I've kept on the shelf for the past 10 years because it runs a legacy application that I use occasionally. It's been running just fine -- nonstop -- for more than a decade. It doesn't need much processing power nor does it need much disk space. I've though about how I might preserve it and keep it running and I have considered using either a VM or a mini ATX server.

Last year, Hackaday, one of my favorite hacking sites, had an article on how to load a limited version of Linux on a Linksys Router. That got me thinking that it would be cool to have a Domino server inside of a Linux router.

That reminded me of a post by Daniel Nashed about running Domino an on Xbox.
 Small computers have come a long way since then, so I've been thinking about what it would take to run a Domino server on a Raspberry Pi.

Why would I want to do that? 1) Because it just well may be possible, and 2) to allow a seldom used dedicated Domino server app to continue its life in a low power machine.

A quick Google search did not turn up anything but I'm sure someone much smarter than me has had this same idea.

It's possible to mount a USB hard drive on a Raspberry Pi and even SD cards have plenty of storage so that shouldn't be an issue.

I found this blog that documents how to install Lotus Domino 8.5 on Ubuntu which may be helpful (or not).

I'm not a Linux guy, but not afraid of learning something new. No idea if I will build this but I might try, just to see what can be done.

So, I post this idea to the YellowVerse to see what conversation or links it may generate.

July 5 issue: 3 Domino servers unable to send SMTP mail

OK Yellowsphere, is this an unusual coincidence? A serious Issue? Short version: This morning, I discovered no outbound SMTP mail being sent from my primary Domino Server. Restarted Router tasks and then the server. No luck. I disabled the mail relay to allow Domino to send direct - same issue. Checked another domino server in a different location and host - same issue. Checked with one of my customers and found that their Domino server is having the same issue today. I realize 3 Inde

Are you using IBM mail support for Microsoft Outlook?
Sun, Jun 4th 2017 7:53p   Eric Mack
I am interested in the suitability of IMSMO in a < 10 user test environment in which the Notes client as well as the Outlook client will be used to manage Mail, Calendar and Tasks in a Mail file on the Domino Server. I would like to connect with someone in the Yellowverse who has successfully deployed IMSMO. I need to test something and would value talking with a fellow peer, IBM Champion or IBM business partner. I'd like to better understand the opportunities and caveats from those

How to migrate IBM Notes Notebook to Microsoft OneNote
Wed, May 3rd 2017 4:55a   Eric Mack
I have a question to ask and a tip to share Background I want to move some information contained in an IBM Lotus Notes Notebook (notebook.nsf or journal.nsf) into a Microsoft OneNote file. The documents in my Notebook.nsf contain rich text, attachments and embedded objects -- all of which I would like to preserve in OneNote. The Notes to Office 365/Outlook migration tools I've found migrate mail/calendar/contacts and some do tasks, but none so far migrate notebook.nsf which is separate f
