Notes 9.0.1 FP3 IF1 - Updated Support for Google Calendar
Tue, Feb 17th 2015 10:57a   Ted Hardenburgh
Recently, the focus of the Domino community has been on the Interim Fixes and Fix Packs for the Domino server around the POODLE issues. Yesterday I noticed a TechNote about an Interim Fix and reading through the Fix List for it, I can upon a fix for an issue we had noticed previously with a client. That is that the federated calendar with Google was throwing an error. The error was pretty generic, but it was something with authentication. The Fix List yesterday referenced that they were u

Sametime Policy Naming - One character to not use in a name
Mon, Aug 19th 2013 12:10a   Ted Hardenburgh
Working with a client last week, they had reported an issue getting a policy setting from Sametime to apply properly. The Chat History setting wasn't getting set as expected. Looking at the issue, we determined that the policy file - policies.user.xml - wasn't getting updated. In fact, it had been a few days since it was updated. Looking at the trace output on the community server, everything looked OK. We could see the policy that was updated on the SSC getting read by the community serv

Due by Thursday, July 18 - Update your Sametime Proxy certificates
Mon, Jul 15th 2013 12:44p   Ted Hardenburgh
The current set of security certificates used to send push notifications to Apple iOS devices expire this week. So by the 18th, you'll want to download and install the "fix" for Sametime Proxy server that updates the certs. See IBM Technote 1641787 for more info including instructions on installing the update.

Installing Domino on Linux - Resolving missing requirements
Thu, Jan 17th 2013 9:15a   Ted Hardenburgh
Recently, I was installing the Domino 9.0 Social Edition on a new CentOS 6 Linux install. It started very smoothly, the CentOS install went very well and the system updates worked flawlessly. I prepped the notes user and group and was ready to install the Domino code. Then it came to a screeching stop. The installer stopped with the message below: To run this installer you need 32bit (i686) packages installed on your 64 bit Linux Redhat. They are not installed by default, but

Location document MailServer field - what not to use
Tue, Jan 15th 2013 10:11a   Ted Hardenburgh
Working with a client recently on some policy setting updates and we ran into an issue where the new policy wasn't taking effect on his client. We made the change to the policy (in this case an Archive policy) and could see that it had been processed and applied to the mail file. Checking the user's Notes client, the link to the Archive was not showing up. I opened up the ($Policies) view in the user's local names.nsf to check the policy documents there and noticed that it had been a cou

Giving Tuesday - Help cure Cystic Fibrosis
Tue, Nov 27th 2012 11:08a   Ted Hardenburgh
Last week, my son Andrew turned 18. Andrew was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when he was 4. CF primarily affects the lungs and pancreas, allowing lung infections to occur and inhibiting weight gain due to lack of enzymes. When he was diagnosed, the average life expectancy for someone with CF was around 21 years of age. Shortly before he was diagnosed, researchers discovered the gene that CF affects and since then have been working to finding a cure. With the advances and discoveries since th

A New Day
Mon, Oct 8th 2012 11:08a   Ted Hardenburgh
After 4 1/2 great years, I have left GBS to start a new chapter in my professional life. My time at GBS (Lotus911 included) was a great time for me professionally and personally, getting to work with an incredible group of talented professionals and making some great friends. However, as someone said, change is good. Now is that time for me. I have joined the team at Best Methods as of today and will be helping to expand and extend the Collaboration Solutions reach with the team there. I

Missing Rules tab in server document?
Tue, Feb 14th 2012 3:12p   Ted Hardenburgh
Admittedly, this is an issue that is a fringe, but thought I'd post it just in case. Yesterday, I was working to configure a client's server to use mail journaling. Everything was going smooth until I went to edit a server configuration document to add the mail rule for a couple of servers. The Rules tab was missing. I was on the Admin client, so I tried it from the Notes client and the tab showed up. So I finished the configuration and went searching for the cause. I mean, wouldn't y

Blackberry SRP changes May 28
Fri, May 27th 2011 11:48a   Ted Hardenburgh
If you have a BES in the US, you're going to want to check your SRP configuration on the BES to make sure it will still work properly after May 28. RIM is changing some IP addresses that will affect your users. First off, check the BES configuration and make sure that the Blackberry Router configuration is pointing to us.srp.blackberry.com and not another host name. Next, run the SRP test and make sure that you see that a successful connection is made to the following new IP addresses: 216

Android, AT&T, Traveler - Get it working with Mac/Linux
Mon, Mar 7th 2011 5:53p   Ted Hardenburgh
Here's the second part of working with an Android device from AT&T and Lotus Traveler. This installment will talk about installing the Traveler app on your device using Sideload Wonder Machine from a Mac or Linux computer. The screenshots will be from my Mac, but the principal is the same either way. To start, download the Lotus Traveler app from your Traveler server. This isn't the installer app that is downloaded initially from the Traveler web page, this is the actual Traveler ap

Android, AT&T, Traveler - Getting them to play nice
Mon, Mar 7th 2011 11:11a   Ted Hardenburgh
So, if you're a Lotus Notes user who bought an Android device on the AT&T network, you probably want to try out Lotus Traveler. Unfortunately, when you try to install Traveler on your device, you'll get a rude awakening. AT&T doesn't like apps that aren't in the market and they block you from installing it. That's where a nice app called Sideload Wonder Machine comes in. This post will cover using it on Windows to install Lotus Traveler, and another post will cover Mac (and L

Domino won’t let that user on to the server? Try this...
Thu, Aug 26th 2010 11:43a   Ted Hardenburgh
Have you ever deleted a user from Domino and added them to the Deny Access group only to have HR come back and say, "We've rehired John Doe and he needs back into Notes right now." Of course you have, and if you've ever done this, you may have come across an issue trying to get the user connected back in after removing their name from the Deny Access group and trying to get the user setup in Notes again. This is because the NameLookup cache hasn't expired. To get the user on to the se

Directory Assistance - watch for design changes
Tue, Apr 27th 2010 1:10p   Ted Hardenburgh
Working on an issue with directory assistance this morning - an admin had created a new directory database to support external users and added it to the existing DA.nsf. While testing the database, the test external users couldn't login - got an invalid password error everytime. Reviewing the configurations, everything looked fine. I got involved and enabled debug_directory_assistance=1 and debug_namelookup=1 and started testing. The debug output revealed that the search wasn't hitting

Help us find a cure for cystic fibrosis
Wed, Apr 14th 2010 7:30p   Ted Hardenburgh
As many of you that know me are aware, my son Andrew has cystic fibrosis. He's 15 now, a freshman in high school and on the freshman baseball team and also participates in Model United Nations. He's pretty healthy for someone with the disease and we're very grateful. Great Strides is the biggest fund raiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and I'm asking for your help. Please make a donation by clicking the link here, or use the button on the right side of the website. The CF Foundatio

How to max out a Notes database
Fri, Feb 26th 2010 9:43a   Ted Hardenburgh
Working with a client recently, we came across some unusual behavior with one mail file. The user reported that his database had gotten to be 64GB and he wasn't sure how. Looking at the database properties, it did show up as 64GB, but there were only around 10K documents and the percent used in the database was around 3%. Something wasn't quite right. Running a compact -c managed to get the database back down to around 2 GB, but over a few days, the database grew again to where it was 7 G
