LND Best Practice - Configuring servers with an extract script and applying your standards
Fri, Apr 11th 2014 8:46a   Ray Davies
I have decided to share some admin stuff on Domino. This may be controversial and many will disagree with my methods. See if I care. No really, I don't. In my last post I moaned about IBM and how little they care about Domino but from the comments Domino is doing OK outside of IBM so this is just to help those folks in the know out with setting up new systems properly from day 1 or to bring wayward systems back into line. The biggest issue you have when auditing or setting up a Domino system,

Here is the issue Notes customers face when dealing with IBM

As I still have many IBM connections I pulled a report for a bank that I nursed back into a positive outlook on Domino and worked closely with them to rebuild confidence in Domino. How did I do that? I DID stuff! Just as with my good friend Mat, that I battled to get into big blue, I put my money where my mouth was. I did not say implement DAOS because apparently it is good, I implemented DAOS working with the teams in the trenches and when the bank exec wanted to know why the systems are now f

Melodramatic ranting or what. I am working on a Lotus Notes / Domino system to be deployed in Uganda in my spare time. This task is confusing my little brain to the point of it almost exploding.

Lotus Notes migration tools for Office 365: After the dullest "lotusphere" ever (from the media's point of view) I am inundated with calls to help migrate legacy systems, aka Lotus Notes, to alternatives. OK, 2 calls. Anyhoo, I think there is gold in them thar hills. Here are (simplified) the steps. Reconfigure mail systems to co-exist by altering MX records and mail flow.Understand mail forwarding and rules.Configure directory assistance for lookups.Either archive "legacy" mail to

felt, written, read, deleted, re-written. My view on Lotusphere 2014
Sun, Jan 26th 2014 9:04a   Ray Davies
It is easy to say the wrong thing these days. Social networking will take your message far and wide and you have no idea of the consequences until it is too late. So far from describing my friends, just trying to earn a crust using IBM technology, as hanger-onners, I will rather say I hope you have a great week in Orlando. I know there are some real passionate people out there, looking at you now Mat, that truly believes in the dead Norwegian blue parrot and I know their enthusiasm is contagio
