Every time there is a HotFix applied on top of a FixPack or Feature Pack, the installation of the new version of the FP fails. It says it found the wrong version. You have to uninstall the HotFix reverting back to the Base FP, then you can upgrade to the newest FP.
Recently I had installed on my server, and my customer’s server the HF238 for FP8 and I could not upgrade that to FP9; had to revert back to base FP8 before upgrading.

This is a nuisance, to say the least. Can someone from IBM Dev have a look into this and allow the installation of a FP on top of whatever version of the previous FP is there ?

Verse on Premises 1.0.2 breaks Notes links

Since I upgraded VOP to 1.0.2 all Notes links ( db links , view links and doc links) in a mail are shown as web links. My friend and fellow IBM Champion Tim Clark made some tests after I told him of this, and he has found the same issues. Hope IBM can look into this and fix it soon.

IBM has released Orient Me 6.0.0.2
Tue, Jul 18th 2017 6:58p   Roberto Boccadoro
Just received this: Dear IBM Connections Orient Me Customer, The IBM Support team is contacting you to inform you that a new update to Orient Me 6.0 is available. The recent release of Docker 17.06 has an incompatibility with IBM Spectrum Conductor for Containers Community Edition 1.1.0 which results in an install failure for Orient Me 6.0.0.1.  The Orient Me development team has made available a new release of Orient Me (6.0.0.2) to address the install failure.  The installation chang

Update on I am a bit worried about Pink system requirements
Thu, Jul 6th 2017 4:41p   Roberto Boccadoro
The very excellent Ben Williams and Nico Meisenzahl have dug deeper in Orient Me and found ways to reduce the footprint. See their blog posts here and here. I now have Orient Me running with 4 cores. I understand this is not a supported configuration, not until IBM comes up with a way to downsize Orient Me to less than 8 cores, but is definitely a big step forward. Thanks Ben and Nico !

I am a bit worried about Pink system requirements
Mon, Jul 3rd 2017 5:18p   Roberto Boccadoro
I finally succeeded in installing Orient Me on a single server. The point is that it needed 8 CPUs and 16 Gb RAM (thanks to Nico Meisenzahl for telling me that 6.0.0.1 would not work with “only” 4 CPUs) Now I am a bit worried. If these are the requirements only for Orient Me, I wonder where we will end up for the whole Pink when it will replace the actual Connections. A single server installation will be out of question. My problem is that all my customers are in the SMB space so the

Something to look for when reinstalling Orient Me
Fri, Jun 30th 2017 1:11p   Roberto Boccadoro
I have some issues when installing Orient Me, so I ended up uninstalling and reinstalling several times. All of a sudden I found my / directory without free space. This is because every time you reinstall CfC it keeps tons of Docker files in the /var/lib directory. I checked and I had 8 docker.timestamp directories in my system. Once I deleted those I gained 39GB of space free. So have a look at your /var/lib and delete all the docker.timestamp directories.

I have just been notified that my session has been approved . My session is “integrating IBM Connections Docs with Box” and is scheduled for May 31 in the afternoon. As usual the DNUG team has set up a great event, suffice to say that the keynote speech will be given by ICS General Manager, Inhi Cho Su. You can check the full agenda here http://44.dnug.de/ There will be several IBM Champions speaking and it will be an occasion for me to meet again many friends.

panagenda ApplicationInsights. A first look
Mon, Apr 24th 2017 1:48p   Roberto Boccadoro
In April panagenda has announced the release of ApplicationInsights, a tool to analyze your Domino environment. The most important features are geared towards the analysis of the applications both from the point of view of utilization and the complexity. It allows me to see how complex is my environment, drilling down to the single applications measuring complexity, code quantity, external dependencies and so on. Apart from the obvious usefulness of being able to see and measure the status of th

OrientMe in a test environment. How to make it work
Thu, Apr 13th 2017 3:35p   Roberto Boccadoro
For all my test systems I do not use a real domain name, I usually go with something like server.roberto.local or the like. This is a problem when you try to install the new OrientMe component that IBM has shipped with Connections 6. The install scripts perform a nslookup and check the domain name then add the resulting IP address to your host file, then it will try to connect to that address and obviously fail. The strange thing is that it will return an IP address also for .local domains, so b
