Apache - Redirect based on IP tables
Thu, Aug 17th 2017 1:49p   Rainer Brandl
Some days ago I received the question of a customer, if it´s possible to use a Reverse Proxy to either redirect to an internal or an external server based on IP ranges. After some searches and help from Martin Leyrer ( thanks a lot for your suggestions ), I figured out the complete configuration file for this special customer. If you need some URL redirection/rewriting, feel free to use this code ( suggestions for better ways to accomplish this request are highly welcome ): ServerName serve
Sync database quotas between servers
Mon, Aug 14th 2017 9:19a   Rainer Brandl
Today I again had the issue, that Database Quotas have not been synced between IBM Domino Cluster servers. After some search, I found the following post: http://tippner.blogspot.co.at/2011/08/synchronizing-database-quotas.html I did some modifications in the code and ran the agent with the Server ID and scheduled the agent one time a day...

Performance problems on Apache Reverse Proxy
Fri, Jul 21st 2017 6:35a   Rainer Brandl
Yesterday I had massive performance troubles after going online with an Apache Reverse Proxy running on CentOS 6.9 for IBM Notes Traveler. The customer has about 1.250 users and approx. 1.650 devices. After some investigation and a great site, where the performance parameters are described very good: ( https://www.linode.com/docs/web-servers/apache-tips-and-tricks/tuning-your-apache-server ) I figured out, that the default configuration of the HTTP server was causing this issues, because the

"Inbox empty"
Wed, May 10th 2017 1:36p   Rainer Brandl
Today I received a call from a customer where the inbox did not display any content at some users - but only in the Notes client, not in iNotes !! After some investigations I remembered, that I had this issue some months ago and found the following IBM technote: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21965120 So if you create a folder with and the first character of the folder is a space, this folder is displayed instead of the inbox and it seems, that the inbox is empty.

Wed, Apr 12th 2017 1:27p   Rainer Brandl
Today I received an email from a customer, where a user was not able to move a calendar appointment by opening the appointment and entering a different date/time.

Mon, Apr 10th 2017 11:22a   Rainer Brandl

After some search, I found this NOTES.INI entry: Check_Quota_on_Mail_Create= http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21247798 This setting is not only used when creating local replicas, but also to check the quota when creating new mails !!

Transferring an IBM xPages application to another server
Wed, Nov 30th 2016 7:52p   Rainer Brandl
Yesterday I had the issue to move an application with embedded xPages and JDBC access to a DB2 database located on an iSeries from one IBM Domino Server to another one. The transfer was not the problem, but we could not find all necessary extension libraries ( except the one from OpenNTF ), especially the JDBC feature. After some tries I recognized this feature in the "updatesite.nsf": With this option you can also move all features and plugins from another server to the new one including
