Replica-Style compact resets quota limits
Fri, Mar 28th 2014 6:12a   Patrick Tippner
If you have a quota and warning limit in place for a database which you treat with the new replica-style-compact in Domino 9, then the quota and warning limit is reset to "no quota". I think that compact should really keep these settings. [read] Keywords: domino database

Beware of Domino 9.0.1 if you're using document locking!
Wed, Mar 26th 2014 8:13a   Patrick Tippner
There's an issue with document locking not working at all in 9.0.1. https://www-304.ibm.com/support/entdocview.wss?uid=swg1LO79377 I can confirm that we have the same issue here - this is quite a mess ... Seems that you can work around that issue if you happen to have an older server (8.5.3) with a replica of your application which you set as the administration server for that database.

Legacy data path
Fri, Jan 24th 2014 5:09a   Patrick Tippner
As we already learned, IBM dropped the term "Lotus" starting with IBM Notes 9.0. This will quite probably cause problems if you want to upgrade your clients from 8.x to 9.0. With Notes 8.x the client automatically appended the path "LotusNotesData" to the path which was set by the MSI-parameter "MultiUserBaseDir" (which corresponds to the registry-key "DataPath"). Beginning with v.9 the default path appended is "IBMNotesData". If you prefer to use the legacy path, you need to set an un [read] Keywords: ibm lotus notes

IBM Notes crashes with errors related to PNGFILT.DLL --> check your DEP settings!
Tue, Nov 12th 2013 7:10a   Patrick Tippner
A lot of our users suffered from random crashes when they just wanted to open and read newly received emails in IBM Notes. Most of the time, the crash reports involved the file pngfilt.dll which is probably supposed to render PNG-Images. Since the crashes weren't reproducible, it didn't seem very easy to find a solution for this. Luckily, most (if not all) of those crashes occured when Notes was used in a Citrix environment, so that seemed to be a hint.

Using a proxy server with Lotus Notes: NTLM authentication and exclusion lists
Fri, Mar 1st 2013 5:10a   Patrick Tippner
If you ever wondered why it's sometimes such a hassle to copy & paste data from a webbrowser directly into your Lotus Notes Client, it might be due to a missing proxy configuration. If your company's proxy server requires NTLM-Authentication, you'll notice that entering your domain-credentials in the proxy configuration dialog of your location document will not work as expected. The client will keep prompting for the proper credentials since it will always try basic authentication with th [read] Keywords: lotus notes notes client network server

Installing Sametime 8.5.2 (+IFR1) on SLES 11 SP2 When you try to install sametime 8.5.2 IFR1 ond SuSe Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2 you'll quite probably encounter a problem with a missing RPM: libstdc++-43-32bit The release notes that ship with SLES 11 SP2 say that it was replaced by libstdc++46-32bit. Since the current libstdc++46 conflicts with libstc++43, you really shouldn't try to downgrade the libraries or install them ignoring those dependencies - it will result in a broken YAST o [read] Keywords: notes sametime blogger enterprise linux server

Lotus Notes & the "integrated" browser
Wed, Nov 7th 2012 10:09a   Patrick Tippner
Did you ever wonder why the "integrated browser" of the Lotus Notes client behaves so differently compared to your regular browser? Here's one reason for that: Using the "integrated browser"-option (on a Windows-OS) means that Lotus Notes utilizes the already installed Internet Explorer engine of your operating system to download and render web-pages (and also images in emails that need to be downloaded before you're able to see them). I would usually expect that engine to behave more or [read] Keywords: agent lotus notes notes client blogger microsoft

GetFileAttr not working for large files?!
Fri, May 11th 2012 12:10p   Patrick Tippner
Coding a little script to accomplish some administrative tasks, I seem to have stumbled across some odd behaviour when dealing with large files and GetFileAttr in Lotus Script. It seems that GetFileAttr is not able to handle files where the physical size is above a certain limit. I've tested with some files trying to figure out the limit, and i believe that it's probably 2GB on our system running Lotus Domino 8.5.3FP1 on SLES11SP2. When I try to read the attributes of a file with a size above [read] Keywords: domino lotus blogger

8.5.3 Domino Server installs client templates
Thu, Oct 6th 2011 7:09a   Patrick Tippner
With release 8.5.3 of Lotus Domino, setup installs some templates to the server which you had to put there manually in the past, in case you wanted to register roaming users via Lotus script (read more on that here). The following templates are installed: bookmark.ntf (v8.5.3 - 16.09.2010) feedcontent.ntf (v8.5.2 - 01.04.2010) notebook8.ntf (v8.5.1 - 24.09.2009) pernames.ntf (v8.5.3 - 18.05.2011) roamingdata.ntf (v8.5.1 - 21.07.2009) [read] Keywords: domino lotus ntf roaming blogger server

Don't panic!!!
Tue, Aug 9th 2011 6:09a   Patrick Tippner
This morning, I realized that one of our servers had trouble with an agent that seemed to be out of control. It was listed as 'fatal' in the server-monitoring view of Lotus Domino Administrator. I tried to stop the zombie-agent using tell amgr cancel "dbpath" 'agent' but that didn't seem to stop it. The agent was still showing as being executed. I tried stopping the agent-manager-task itself, but that didn't help either - it even made the situation worse, since the agent-manager couldn' [read] Keywords: agent domino ibm lotus nsd blogger google server

Synchronizing Database Quotas
Tue, Aug 9th 2011 6:09a   Patrick Tippner
Since we heavily rely on database quotas, I find it quite annoying that there's no built-in mechanism to synchronize the quota values (and many other database properties) between different servers in a cluster. Because of that, I wrote a small Lotus Script agent to accomplish that task. Here's the code: Option Public Option Declare Sub Initialize Dim dbdir As New NotesDbDirectory("mail01/srv") Dim s As New notessession Dim db As NotesDatabase Dim db2 As NotesDatabase Set db = [read] Keywords: agent lotus blogger database db2 properties

Beware of updating to 8.5.2 (including FP1 and FP2) if you still need to replicate databases with a R5 server. Pushing data to the R5 server will not work as expected! See: https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1LO59916 Quote: "In 852 a new flag UPDATE_2_MARK_READ_NEWNOTE is being passed on the call to NSFNoteReplicateExtended.

RegisterNewUser and Roaming-Users
Tue, May 10th 2011 1:43p   Patrick Tippner
A while ago, we built an application that automatically registers users in our domino directory when our human resources department hires new employees. Now that we changed all of our users to be roaming users, I thought it would be easy to adapt our script, in order to immediately create roaming users during the registration process. Unfortunately, I encountered a strange error after adding the corresponding code to our script: .IsRoamingUser = True .Roamingcleanupsetting = REG_ROAMING_CLEANUP [read] Keywords: agent domino ibm lotus notes notes client ntf roaming application blogger server

ECL mystery
Wed, Mar 23rd 2011 6:56a   Patrick Tippner
Last week, we wanted to roll out a new security policy containing an administrative ECL to all of our users. My tests indicated that we would have to sign the policy and the corresponding settings document with one of our server's id-files, because the only entry allowed to modify the local ECL was something like "*/SRV/ORG". We didn't want to bother out 1000+ users with unnecessary warning messages.

DAOSmgr resync
Tue, Feb 22nd 2011 5:14a   Patrick Tippner
Today, I had to restore a database from backup to one of our production servers. We're using Tivoli Storage Manager for Lotus Domino and have DAOS enabled for that server. The documentation says, that a database restore makes it necessary to start a resynchronization of the DAOS catalog. Is it just me who feels uncomfortable about issuing that "tell daosmgr resync" on a production server during the normal office hours? As far as I understand, this means that the DAOSmgr has a look at every s [read] Keywords: domino lotus blogger database interface office server tivoli
