Webinterface not working after upgrading to traveler 8.5.3 Upgrade Pack 2
Wed, Dec 12th 2012 8:36a Stephan Kopp We had an issue with the traveler webinterface after upgrading to 8.5.3 Upgrade Pack 2.
The webinterface didn’t show any content:
It is working when accessing one of the traveler servers directly, but not when using the external proxy URL.
During the setup procedure, some changes will be applied to the website configuration document.
But in our case not to all of them (we have different ones for internal and external access).
There is a new setting in the website configuration document, [read] Keywords: lotus

OpenNTF Project “Custom Login Page”
Tue, Oct 2nd 2012 7:10a Stephan Kopp A new interesting project called “Custom Login Page” has been published on OpenNTF.
The database is based on the domcfg5.ntf template and provides much more options to customize your login pages and error messages.
One use case could be to provide an alternative login screen in case of SPNEGO login failures. By default, you get only an error message and users don’t have the possbility to login with username and password instead of SPNEGO logon.

2-in-1: ACL & Cluster Tool for free!
Thu, Sep 6th 2012 3:51a Stephan Kopp Over many years and through many customer projects I created a lot of code and tools. Most of them only for particular projects. But some time ago, I could make at least two of them easy to use for all administrators without any development background.
I want to contribute these tools to the Lotus Notes community and hopefully some of you find it useful. Both tools are incorporated into one single database:
The ACL Tool can be used to manage the database ACL on one or multiple servers. You can [read] Keywords: acl
Good bye Lotusphere…
Fri, Aug 24th 2012 4:10p Stephan Kopp welcome IBM Connect 2013: http://www.lotusphere.com
Mir hat der Name Lotusphere besser gefallen, aber das kommt vermutlich daher, dass ich ein altbackener Notes Geek bin…
In den letzten 5 Jahren war ich 4 mal in Orlando und es war jedes mal die Reise wert (manchmal mehr, manchmal weniger).
Ich hoffe die Qualität der Sessions und der ganzen Veranstaltung bleibt auf dem hohen Niveau, auch wenn der Name Lotus nun endgültig gestrichen wurde.

Upgrading my old 2009 MacBook Pro
Wed, Aug 8th 2012 5:18a Stephan Kopp Just upgraded my old MacBook…
2 GB RAM –> 8 GB
160 GB Hard Disk –> 256 GB SSD
10 minutes replacing the hardware (very easy)
60 minutes to download and create a bootable external usb hard drive with mountain lion (because no USB stick and no DVD available at home…)
3 hours to create the partition and time-machine restore
And the most impressing: After a few days, it still works :-)

I’m outta here…
Fri, Aug 3rd 2012 6:45a Stephan Kopp For my summer vacation, yeah!
I will relax and try keeping any thoughts of work, IBM, Lotus Notes and anything else off my mind.
You can still contact me, but don’t expect an immediate response.
Will be back in September. Stay tuned!

How to re-create recent contacts after a corruption
Fri, Jul 20th 2012 12:00a Stephan Kopp In addition to my former post: “Recent Contacts Tuning”
I found a technote explaining how to re-create the recent contacts, for example after a corruption, without deleting all of them.
Is there a way to reset the contents of the Recent Contacts view if, for example, corruption is suspected?
The steps provided below can be used to reset the contents of the Recent Contacts view:

Limit the total size of a sent mail including the number of recipients
Wed, Jul 18th 2012 12:00a Stephan Kopp Even if you limit the maximum message size in the router restrictions tab of the configuration document for example to 10 MB, users can still send a mail with 9.5 MB to 10.000 Users!
To limit also the total size including all recipients, computed like [message size] * [number of recipients], you can additionally use these notes.ini parameters:
RouterMaxEffectiveSize defines the maximum size in KB computed in the mentioned way.

Fri, Jul 6th 2012 4:00a Stephan Kopp Do you have very large notes databases on your server and experiencing performance issues?

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:
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
