Traveler Authentication

I have recently been running some tests with Traveler to see if the client can be configured to use Active Directory credentials rather than a Notes username and Internet password.

An easy way of doing this is to add the domain username to the users person document and set/sync the same password. This works but is not an acceptable option.

While it is possible to configure the Traveler server to authenticate using AD when accessing it via a browser this does not work from an Android Traveler client.

Does anyone know of a way of getting this to work?

Also I have been trying the Android Email client as an alternative to using the Traveler client. I am not sure what the benefit is of using the Traveler client over the Android 4 builtin Exchange client. This may be addressed in the 8.5.4 client but why install additional software if it is not required?

Lotus Notes - Notes Client error: IBM Notes failed to start successfully
Wed, Mar 12th 2014 10:10a   Paul Farris
IBM Lotus Notes Client will not start. After entering the users password it eventually displays the error message "IBM Notes failed to start successfully". Check if it will start in Basic mode (test by appending -sa to the desktop shortcut command line and running). If so then it may be a Java issue. Copy the Framework folder (c:Program Files (x86)IBMLotusNotesframework) from another client which does work and is the same version.

Lotus Notes client shuts down when started
Thu, Oct 3rd 2013 11:12p   Paul Farris
I have had an issue with one of our Lotus Notes clients (v8.5.x) recently. When starting the client it allowed the user to enter their credentials and instead of displaying the homepage it would immediately shutdown and prompt to replicate on shutdown. Repeatedly restarting the client resulted in the same behaviour. Renaming the Workspace folder (under the Data folder) fixed this issue. [read] Keywords: lotus notes notes client workspace
