TeamCal for Notes is available on the App Store!
Wed, Apr 2nd 2014 6:10a   Stephan Kopp
My first iOS app has been released today. It is a team calendar for Notes/Domino users. At the moment, you need a backend Notes database which collects all calendar entries, but in future releases I plan to connect directly to the mail servers using the REST api. The App is for free and the backend database also. Read more… Filed under: IBM Notes/Domino, iOS [read] Keywords: domino ibm notes notesdomino apple database facebook twitter

In the past years (almost 15 years…oh, my goodness), I’ve always developed in parallel to my infrastructure projects some system or migration tools based on LotusScript. But no real application development and not object oriented at all. End of last year I felt a little bit tired with my job and all the “boring” Notes/Domino stuff, so I came to the conclusion to start something completely different (at least in my free time, not a new job).

Ok, die ersten beiden Tage IBM Connect 2014 liegen hinter mir und es gab wirklich anders als erwartet eine Menge Neuigkeiten. Ganze zu Beginn, ich komme aus der Lotus Notes Welt und finde die Richtung die IBM einschlägt konsequent und sinnvoll, auch wenn viele den Produktnamen nachweinen oder Angst haben sich jetzt mit neuen Technologien beschäftigen zu müssen. Ich sehe das alles als eine Chance für die Zukunft und auch im Hinblick auf die Konkurrenzprodukte als ein Alleinstellungsmerkmal.

Ja, die neue Version ist jetzt auch schon fast wieder ein halbes Jahr “alt”, aber ich finde dass IBM ein guter Wurf gelungen ist und man sollte durchaus weiterhin versuchen der allgemeinen “wir migrieren sowieso bald alle nach Exchange” Lethargie entgegenzuwirken. Eines ganz zu Beginn: IBM hat meiner Meinung nach die Versprechen, die auf der Lotusphere 2010 mit der Ankündigung von „Project Vulcan“ vielen als unrealistisch erschienen zu einem großen Teil eingelöst.

The new browser plug-in is a great feature. You can choose to deploy only the browser plug-in or you can install it as an additional option with the standard client. For some users, the browser plug-in together with the awesome new iNotes may be a good option to a standard client deployment and they won’t need a client anymore.

How to send Non Delivery Reports to your users without attachments
Mon, Jul 30th 2012 8:45a   Stephan Kopp
The problem Most companies limit the maximum size of outgoing mails to the internet. In case of an existing size limit for outgoing mails, Lotus Notes will send Non Delivery Reports back to the users containing the original attachments. This is a good behaviour, because users can easily use the “resend” functionality to change the mail and send it again to the intended recipients.

You can open your designer or admin help database, but you can’t see it?
Thu, Jul 12th 2012 10:34a   Stephan Kopp
I had the problem, that my designer help was opened, but I can’t see the window. It was shown in my Windows task bar, but I can’t bring it to the front or switch to it with any keyboard shortcut. Deleting these notes.ini parameters solved my problem: HELPWINDOWSIZEWIN HELPMAXIMIZED Just restart the client and the default settings are restored. I think this is a Windows 7 only problem, I never had something like this before…. Filed under: Lotus Notes Tagged: Client, Designer [read] Keywords: admin lotus notes database facebook twitter

Why deleting .ft directories on running Domino servers is a bad idea
Tue, Jul 10th 2012 2:52p   Stephan Kopp
On unix or linux servers, deleting .ft directories while Domino is running can cause problems. In some cases, Domino is still accessing already deleted files, which will prohibit fulltext index rebuild and lead to error messages like this: Error full text indexing document NT00000000 .......  (rc=268) File is in use by another program To solve this: Shutdown server Delete the affected .ft directory Restart Domino server Rebuild fulltext index Filed under: Lotus Notes Tagged: Domino, Lotus [read] Keywords: domino lotus notes facebook linux server twitter

Mon, Jul 9th 2012 9:00a   Stephan Kopp
When creating a client package for automatic rollout, you can use the plugin_customization.ini to specify many default settings and customize the clients. The plugin_customization.ini can be found in the “deploy” subdirectory of the client installer package. Some examples, which might be helpful to set the most common options for new or upgraded clients: com.ibm.rcp.ui/DOCKED_LAUNCHER=1 --> dock the open list by default com.ibm.rcp.ui.browser.launcher/USE_EMBEDDED_BROWSER=fals [read] Keywords: admin collaboration ibm lotus notes sametime community eclipse facebook password server twitter widget

Performance tuning of large databases
Fri, Jul 6th 2012 4:00a   Stephan Kopp
Do you have very large notes databases on your server and experiencing performance issues? Would you be glad to get a secret notes.ini parameter like performance=on? Ok, it is not soooo easy, but below you find some quick tipps to tune your domino server a little bit. 1. notes.ini (server) FTG_USE_SYS_MEMORY=1 SERVER_NAME_LOOKUP_NO_UPDATE=1 UPDATE_FULLTEXT_THREAD=1 UPDATERS=4 Yes I know, you can get this list also with the Domino Configuration Tuner. But, how many people know what DCT is? 2. [read] Keywords: domino lotus notes database facebook properties server twitter

Recent Contacts Tuning
Thu, Jul 5th 2012 10:09a   Stephan Kopp
With each version of Notes, there are more options to customize the recent contacts behaviour. But these parameters are still interesting, because there is no UI representation: DPABRemoveRule=domainA,domainB,textC DPABRemoveRuleSetting=1 Using these parameters, you can exclude all recipients from the recent contacts matching one of the strings (example: user@domainA.com will be removed). Since version 8.5.2, these parameters will also delete already existing documents from the recent contacts [read] Keywords: lotus notes facebook twitter

Lotus Notes Social Edition doch ein eigenes Release und nicht nur ein Addon
Tue, Jul 3rd 2012 5:15a   Stephan Kopp
Glücklicherweise rudert die IBM zurück und wirft die Strategie über den Haufen, die Social Edtion nur als Addon zu vermarkten. Ursprünglich hieß es, es gäbe die Social Edition nur als einfaches Addon zu einem der nächsten Notes Versionen. Jetzt wird es aber definitiv eine Lotus Notes 8.5.4 Social Edition geben, die man dann einfach optional mit oder ohne die Social Komponenten installieren kann. Ob die generelle Strategie mit einer Social Integration funktionieren wird, zeigt sich Ende de [read] Keywords: domino ibm lotus notes facebook integration twitter

Lotus Traveler NTSConfig.xml settings sind ab 8.5.3 Upgrade Pack 1 in der notes.ini zu finden
Fri, Jun 29th 2012 6:09a   Stephan Kopp
Mit dem High Availibility Upgrade Pack wurden einige Optionen aus der NTSConfig.xml in die notes.ini umgezogen. NTSConfig.xml:      ALLOWED_USER_AGENT_REGEX Notes.ini:        NTS_USER_AGENT_ALLOWED_REGEX Eine komplette Liste habe ich noch nicht gefunden. Ob alle Settings mit der gleichen Syntax auch in der notes.ini funktionieren, habe ich auch noch nicht ausprobiert. Über weiteres Feedback dazu wäre ich dankbar… Filed under: Lotus Traveler Tagged: Lotus, notes.ini, Travele [read] Keywords: lotus notes traveler facebook twitter xml
