A life lesson - It is not what someone says but what they don't say
Fri, Apr 18th 2014 6:45a   Ray Davies

Reinstalling Lotus Foundations 1.2 - customizing before installing Domino - Local Network
Thu, Apr 29th 2010 2:31a   Ray Davies
There are a few things to do before installing Domino. Once Domino is installed you can no longer alter the host name or domain name amongst others. It is preferable to customise everything before you install the applications. Hostname: This option specifies the network name of your server. The first time the server starts, it automatically chooses a hostname for itself. You can change it if you like. If you set this to be blank, another hostname will be automatically chosen [read] Keywords: admin connections domino foundations ibm lotus apple applications blogger database email interface mac network password server smtp

Reinstalling Lotus Foundations 1.2 - Disk - Zot
Wed, Mar 31st 2010 8:08a   Ray Davies
There is only one thing left to do and that is format the disks and start again. There is a hidden program available for this called disk-zot. It does not format the drive but rewrites the MBR and other hidden parts of the disk. I rebooted and the system was still active! Arggghhhh, so do not reboot, type in setup and ZAP the config as well. :-( Some hidden commands that can be used: Weaver commands can be used to tell Nitix to always use a specific file system. For example, if yo [read] Keywords: foundations ibm lotus apple application blogger server

Reinstalling Lotus Foundations 1.2 - Frustration city
Wed, Mar 31st 2010 5:29a   Ray Davies
Many hours have been wasted. There has been changes to the core and unetbootin no longer worked properly. Yes the image was written and kinda booted but barfed. I did not have a spare blank CD with me so I had to wait till I got home. Anyway, I used K3b to write a DVD and boot the new system. One of the things that Ozzie always mentioned was that Foundations was like a virus and installed itself every where. How true. Even though I booted from a DVD it always booted the installed system no mat [read] Keywords: foundations lotus application blogger virus

Reinstalling Lotus Foundations 1.2 - Start failure
Wed, Mar 31st 2010 12:30a   Ray Davies
As feared the system ZAP did not make any difference. The system name has been redefined and the install restarted but still fails without any explanation. This is a pain as this demo Foundation server is my main backup server for all the Foundations related files. Here is the file system: The next step is to ZOT the disk but it is running on a T60 and not an Appliance therefore the OS is not embedded so I have to boot of CD/DVD or USB. Let's see what we can find in the drawer! [read] Keywords: foundations lotus application blogger server

Not Funny :-(
Tue, Mar 30th 2010 8:24p   Ray Davies
I have tried over the last few days to reinstall my demo Foundations setup to 1.2 or 8.5.1. It failed continuously with no indication of why toys were chucked out of the pram! I know this product inside out and have done everything to bypass the error but obviously not enough. I am at the end of my tether so there is only one thing left to do and that is restart everything. No issues and good for all as I have decided to record and document all actions. In the next few blog pages I will descr [read] Keywords: foundations xpages blogger

I have been aware of this for some time after a discussion in Frangipani in KL so I have had time to digest. Here is a journalists view of Project Vulcan's "conceptual representation" IBM is giving its researchers a new pipeline to show off early versions of net-based Lotus collaboration tools. As part of its annual Lotusphere conference on Monday, the company also provided a peek at what it sees as the future of the business collaboration suite, a thing called "Project Vulcan."

Hi Followers! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all. Due to the incredibility bad service from Streamyx in Malaysia I have had to close down all my blogs and web sites and move them into cyberspace. I like Google and all it stands for so I have decided to make that my primary web presence for now. I will now be publishing Lotus Notes and IBM nuggets on this web site. From the name of this site you can see that it is all about Lotus Notes. (SETONMBI) I have a few more web sites where I [read] Keywords: ibm lotus notes blogger google linux planet lotus

What to do. So many things to communicate but I am in limbo land. First things first though. Rayd.co.uk must be silenced. It is attracting attention and has now become all that it is not suppose to be and that is my little view on life as I see it. I was not king of the castle after all. Will it come back? Who knows?

KL Travelogue
Tue, Sep 8th 2009 11:15p   Ray Davies
My first day as a inhabitant of Kuala Lumpur has been interesting. Due to a miscommunication my work visa will only be stamped on the 16th. I was planning on sorting a bank account, getting a house etc but without a visa it is not an option. Most will think this is a real set back but being a rather positive person this is simply a weeks worth of extra holiday! My new priorities are now to do a PADI refresh tomorrow, go to the low yat centre and just chill for a while starting with a quick jet [read] Keywords: blogger
