IBM Connections Mail - destined for end of support

Over the weekend, I noticed a blog entry in my feed reader from the IBM Collaboration Solutions Support blog -  End of Support Plans for the Connections Mail Plug-in - which starts of detailing that the IC Mail plugin for Connections 4.0 and 4.5 entered end of support this month. It also indicated EOS dates for the plugins for 5.0

The interesting/disturbing piece is related to future plans for IC Mail and Connections.  The statement is that there are no plans for a version of the Mail plugin to work with Connections 6.0.  And there is no mention of what a replacement might be.

Most of our clients that use Connections use the Mail plugin as well, so this would be a significant loss of functionality if there is actually nothing to replace the plugin.  Is it going to be part of the main suite now? Will Verse (cloud and on-prem) replace it?  Who knows, but apparently IBM is happy to let speculation play out until it makes a complete announcement.

Once again - we need IBM to fully explain what's going on.

IBM Traveler 9.0.1.16 - A Note On Upgrading
Fri, Feb 17th 2017 6:34p   Ted Hardenburgh
So IBM Traveler 9.0.1.16 is now available. We've been waiting on it to upgrade our internal server that was on an older version, mostly due to the issue that Detlev posted about in December. That is "fixed" in this release, however my experience upgrading revealed that it wasn't so much fixed as the command that you need to issue to resolve the error was enabled for use. So, after upgrading Traveler from the .12 release, the server started up and watched as the Traveler db had its desig

IBM Verse On-Premises - some thoughts after using for two weeks
Tue, Jan 17th 2017 8:07p   Ted Hardenburgh
We installed IBM Verse On-Premises (VOP) the day it was released. See my previous post about the installation (simple). This post will cover my impressions after having used it for two weeks as my main access point to my company email. Basic Usage: Overall, I'm pretty pleased with the VOP 1.0 release. Reading and composing emails are easy and straightforward. When new mail arrives, the browser tab adds a red dot to the Verse icon to let me know there's something new. Messages render a

IBM Docs - Technote on Understanding the Save, Publish and Copy options
Fri, Jan 13th 2017 6:29p   Ted Hardenburgh
This came across my feed this morning and I think it's a useful piece of information to share with users of IBM Docs. They often ask the difference between the save, auto-save, publish, auto-publish and the copy options when working on documents. This technote from IBM gives a fairly succinct explanation of what the differences are. Understanding Save, Auto-save, Publish, Auto-publish, and Copy

IBM Connections Files Integration with iNotes
Fri, Jan 6th 2017 5:39p   Ted Hardenburgh
Now that Verse On-Premises 1.0 is out, I was taking a look at the integration with Connections Files. I've run into an issue with that that I'm still looking at, but as part of the diagnosis, I went back to look at the Connections Files integration with iNotes to try and get some better logging. During that inspection, I came across a different issue after we've upgraded our Connections instance to 5.5 and narrowed the TLS settings. The issue in iNotes was that the client was failing wth

Initial impressions on IBM Verse On-Premises 1.0
Fri, Dec 30th 2016 11:23p   Ted Hardenburgh
NOTE: This is a "first impression" post after working with VOP for a few hours. I didn't participate in the betas, so this is a fresh experience. So, as has been announced on the interwebs today, IBM Verse On-Premises 1.0 (VOP) was made available for download today. Part number: CNDG8ML We had some time today, so Chris Whisonant and I installed it and setup the integration with Connections. So Chris did the Domino side and I handled the Connections side. Here are my brief comment

IBM Connections 5.5 - Errors in SystemOut.log cleaning up HOMEPAGE database
Thu, Dec 22nd 2016 2:30p   Ted Hardenburgh
Working with a client on IBM Connections 5.5 CR1, they were noticing errors in the SystemOut.log of the InfraCluster around 11pm regularly. Lately, the errors were filling up 1GB of logs for a minute when it occurred. The "critical" piece of information was the line below: Error for batch element #1: A parent row cannot be deleted Page 10 of 67 because the relationship "HOMEPAGE.NR_READ_STATUS.FK_READ_STATUS_STR" restricts the deletion.. SQLCODE=-532, SQLSTATE=23504, DRIVER=4.19.49

File Downloads from Connections using SPNEGO
Thu, Nov 3rd 2016 8:48p   Ted Hardenburgh
With IBM Connections, there are options to utilize different SSO options. One of the eaiser is using Windows Integrated Authentication, better known as SPNEGO. This uses the AD domain and the user's Windows credentials to issue a ticket that can be used to authenticate users against other resources, such as an IBM Connections site. In some cases, this doesn't work like it should. One example is if the user gets an email with a link to download a file stored in Connections, but hasn't yet

Startup Beans and adding additional nodes in Connections
Tue, Jul 5th 2016 3:34p   Ted Hardenburgh
Last week, working with a customer that had setup a two-node install of Connections 5.5. Getting ready to go live and we noticed an issue in the SystemOut log of the InfraCluster when the server would start or when the search index task would run. CLFRW0454E: Unable to get indexing information about the current server, the index will not be built for this server. We had followed the instructions for adding the new node, and couldn't determine why we were seeing this issue. Opened a PMR an

IBM Connections 5.5 CR1 and Connections Mail - issue with calendar picker
Mon, Jun 20th 2016 7:44p   Ted Hardenburgh
After updating a test server with Connections 5.5 CR1, a customer noticed that the calendar picker in Activities would stay open after selecting a Due Date for an activity. This didn't happen in 5.5 or earlier versions. We opened a PMR with IBM and after some back and forth, according to IBM the issue is related to Connections Mail being enabled on the server. If you don't have Connections Mail enabled, there's no issue. A fix is in the works. I'm hoping that it will be an update availa
