||IBM Notes/Domino 9.0.1 Feature Pack 8 available
Today IBM release the announced Feature Pack 8 with a lot of great new features:
first of all there´s a separate download for the template of the Domino NAB and the Mail template on IBM Fix Central: Template Download
Move views out of databases
You can move views out of databases into separate view index files (.NDX files). 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.
For more information, see the following link: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSKTMJ_9.0.1/admin/admn_moving_views_out_of_databases.html?view=kc
Increase the document summary data limit to 16 MB
You can increase the document summary data limit on Notes® 9 databases. Summary data is data in non-rich-text fields, number fields, and date-time fields.
Previously the combined size of all summary data fields in a document was limited to 64 K. This limit is now 16 MB. The size limit for a single field is still 64 K. The size limit for views is still 64K for the combined key and data.
To increase the summary data limit on a database, use the following server command:
load compact -LargeSummary on database.nsf
Java JRE version 1.8 provided with Domino
The Java run time environment provided with Notes and Domino has been upgraded to Java JRE version 1.8 to provide you with access to the latest features. Domino Designer continues to compile with Java 1.6.
Enable the Group By Date feature in all mail files
Administrators can push the notes.ini setting EnableGroupByDate=1 to Notes clients to enable the Show > Group By Date option in mail files. When enabled, messages in the Inbox, All Documents view, and personal folders on the IBM Notes client are grouped by relative date: Today, Yesterday, Last Week, and so forth.
Users can select Show > Group By Date to turn off the setting.
For more information, see the topic Enabling the Group By Date feature in all mail files.
Enable the Show Beginning of Message feature in all mail files
Administrators can push the notes.ini setting EnableBeginningOfMessage=1 to Notes clients to enable the Show > Beginning of Message option in mail files.
When enabled, Notes client users see the first 100 characters of a message in their Inbox or personal folders along with the subject. Users can select Show > Beginning of Message to turn off the setting.
For more information, see the topic Enabling the Show Beginning of Message feature in all mail files.
Retain MIME formatting when forwarding or replying to internet messages
Administrators can push the notes.ini setting KeepReplyForwardMime=1 to Notes standard clients. This setting retains 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.
When this setting is enabled and users respond to or forward messages from the internet, the Notes embedded browser is used to display the original messages with MIME fidelity. Users can't edit the original messages, but they can copy information from them and paste it into their responses.
For more information, see the topic Retaining MIME formatting when forwarding or replying to internet messages.
Notes browser plug-in is no longer part of Notes package
The Notes browser plug-in is no longer provided with the Notes client package. IBM Client Application Access (ICAA), a new lightweight client that provides access to Notes applications, can be used instead. ICAA is available to Notes customers free of charge and can be downloaded from Passport Advantage®. For more information, see the IBM Client Application Access documentation.
ADFS 3.0 now supported as a SAML federated identity provider
Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) 3.0 can be used as a Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) federated identity provider (IdP). For more information, see the section Using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) to configure federated-identity authentication.
If you decide to install IBM Domino 9,0.1 FP8, don't forget to upgrade IBM Lotus Traveler to 188.8.131.52, otherwise Traveler will not work due to the update of the JVM to version 1.8

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... 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|
Wed, Aug 9th 2017 10:39a Rainer Brandl
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

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.
