||IBM Notes/Domino 9.0.1 Feature Pack 8 Preliminary Release Notice
IBM released a preliminary release notice about all the new functions included in Feature Pack 8 - the whole list can be found here: Notes/Domino 901 FP8
Currently FP8 is in "Gold Canditate" state...
But the most interesting features are:

Notes Client on Linux - There is no Notes client for Linux shipped with 9.0.1 FP8. This client platform has been discontinued and customers are encouraged to move to Windows or Mac.
Domino Server on Linux32 and AIX32 - There is no Domino Server for Linux32 and AIX32 shipped with 9.0.1 FP8. This server platform has been discontinued and customers are encouraged to move to the 64-bit platforms. Windows 32 bit remains a shipped and support platform.
Windows Server 2016 Support - (SPR #SVROAEPS4R)
New Features in IBM® Domino® 9.0.1 Social Edition Feature Pack 8
Optionally Move Views outside of NSF for Increased data store in NSF
This feature is useful for large databases and provides the following benefits:
- A smaller database file size, to avoid reaching the 64GB limitation.
- Faster database backup and restore.
- Better performance by allowing concurrent access to database and views.
Java Upgrade to 1.8.
The Java run time environment provided with Domino has been upgraded to Java JRE version 1.8 to provide you with access to the latest features.
Optionally Increase Document Summary Data (SPR #AKNX64TLRS APARID: LO04193)
You can increase the document summary data limit on Notes 9 databases to 16MB from 64K. (The size limit for a single field remains 32 K.)
Add support for ADFS 3.0 and update the corresponding Cookbook instructions for configuration.
New Features in IBM® Notes® 9.0.1 Social Edition Feature Pack 8
Optionally Add Show Options: "Group By Date" And "Beginning Of Message", To Desktop Policy Settings (SPR #JSTN98BP3T APARID: LO75595)
Administrators can add the notes.ini setting EnableGroupByDate=1 on mail servers to enable the Show > Group By Date option in all mail files.
Optionally Retain MIME formatting when forwarding or replying to internet messages
A notes.ini setting is now available for Notes Standard clients to retain MIME message formatting when users reply to or forward messages received from the internet. Without this setting, MIME messages are converted to Notes Rich Text which can cause some MIME formatting to be lost.
Optionally Enable displaying internet addresses in mail and calendar documents
You can enable internet addresses rather than Notes addresses to display in the Notes client mail and calendar. For example, display email@example.com rather than Samantha Daryn/Renovations@Renovations. To enable this feature, add the following setting to the notes.ini file on a Notes client $INETADDRESSFIXUP=1

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|

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... So far it´s looking fine... You can download the database here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9ebh3r0qh4hl6ft/sync_dbquotas.nsf?dl=0
IBM Connections 5.5 CR3 upgrade issue|

Today I installed Connections 5.5 CR3 at customer site and followed the required steps here. I also followed the steps for creating the requested Dynacache for the Rich Text Editor: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg22001580 As mentioned I created the Dynacache just for the RTE-Cluster and figured out, that this led to problems for all single cluster member. So I removed the setting for the RTE-Cluster and added it for the complete cell: After a restart of all cluster serve

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
