Initial impressions on IBM Verse On-Premises 1.0

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 comments on my couple of hours in.

INSTALL:  Went very smoothly on Windows, no issues.  Install the Hotfix that enables Verse, copy some JARs to the OSGI folder, set some notes.ini parameters, update the redirect db design, mail design and that's it. One note is that while the documentation only advises to make sure mail files are indexed, it looks like if you already have an indexed file, you'll want to rebuild the indexes.  We ran into that on my mail file on the server.  The server will initiate a rebuild, but it looks like it may cause some errors in the Inbox until the index is re-done.  At least that was my experience.

Also, there is one URL https:///verse for all users.  So if you want to make verse the default, you'll want to update your server configuration.


INTERFACE:  If you've seen any slidedeck from this year, you'll know what to expect for the most part.  It's an interface that you'll recognize. When you login, you'll be prompted to allow browse notifications in Chrome, Safari and Firefox.

One More Setting to Force TLSv1.2 in Connections 6.0
Mon, Aug 14th 2017 6:34p   Ted Hardenburgh
It appears that there is one additional setting that is needed to force IBM Connections 6.0 to use TLSv1.2. In each Application Server go to Process Definiition > Java Virtual Machine and add the following setting in the Generic JVM arguments: -Dcom.ibm.jsse2.overrideDefaultTLS=true . Save the changes and after applying to all application servers, restart the servers. Link to complete Technote

IBM Technote: Customizing Default Navigation Order of Apps in Connections 6.0 Mobile App
Tue, Jul 18th 2017 5:50p   Ted Hardenburgh
A technote published today outlines the ability to customize the default order of the apps displayed in the IBM Connections Mobile app. This does require IBM Connections 6.0 and the June 2017 update to be installed for the new setting to work. See this technote for the details on configuring the new setting.

IBM Docs 2.0 - CR2 Includes Fixes For Security Vulnerabilities
Thu, Apr 27th 2017 10:08a   Ted Hardenburgh
If you're looking for another reason to install CR2 for IBM Docs 2.0 beyond "just getting the latest", here's one: this CR includes fixes for three different security vulnerabilities. If you've got an externally facing Connections environment, I would recommend getting the update scheduled sooner rather than later. Security Bulletin: IBM Connections Docs is Vulnerable to a Denial of Service (CVE-2015-8806) Security Bulletin: IBM Connections Docs is Vulnerable to a Heap-based Buffer

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
