A user tried to enable the auto-status change feature in sametime embedded. Everytime he opened the preferences he got an error message. And when he changed the
properties they wouldn't save.
After some investigation I discovered, that the file notesdataworkspace.metadata.pluginscom.ibm.collaboration.realtime.alertmanagerautostatus.xml was empty but 1kb big.
So I copied the file from another workstation. After the user had restarted the notes client, he was able to adjust the auto-status change settings.
Traveler UP2 - connection errors
Wed, Mar 6th 2013 5:08a Urs Meli I tried to install Traveler UP2 some days ago.
I had a test server running Traveler UP1, which I upgraded.
After the upgrade I could register new devices (iphone and android) but they were unable to sync. The device log showed an error 500 http error.
The server console showed some longish severe error messages from traveler. Something about getDevicePreferences error.
The common reason for this error is a misstyped traveler url in the server document or the notes.ini, which in fact [read] Keywords: notes
Traveler - logging user activity - Part 1
Tue, Nov 20th 2012 5:08a Urs Meli Ever wondered that traveler does not provide any statistics about the user activities? Do you want to know how much data gots transmitted over your traveler server?
The statistics from the traveler task gives you just a brief overview but if you want to track a single user you are lost, are you?
There's a simple way to get the results. Do you remember DomLog.nsf ? If you enable Domlog.nsf on the traveler server every request gets logged.
I built a new view - traveler - in the domlo [read] Keywords: agent
Attachments - Thunderbird
Thu, May 10th 2012 3:09p Urs Meli Sometimes there are some small things that disrupt useability.
I use thunderbird for my personal mail accounts. I was very surprised, when I missed a little feature.
I tried to drag an attachment into a new mail as I'm used to do from Notes. I was very surprised, that this doesn't work. It's only a small thing, but it's anoying. [read] Keywords: notes
SPNEGO - SSO from Hell
Fri, Jan 27th 2012 5:10a Urs Meli Just during Lotusphere I got the message that our SPNEGO support stoppt working.
Right back from Orlando I checked everything in the troubleshooting guide . Nothing helped. No one did any changes to our dominos or to the active directory.
Wireshark revealed a KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED error, while authentication. So I lurked around the internet for this error without success. Some pages indicated, that it is a replication problem between domain controllers. But dcdiag.exe didn't find anything. [read] Keywords: domino
NotesDateTime to Java Timestamp
Wed, Nov 16th 2011 6:11a Urs Meli Based on this work I needed a function to convert a notesdatetime to a java timestamp.
I changed the getTimestamp method to
Function getTimestamp(dt As Variant) As String
Const EPOCH_DATE = "01/01/1970 00:00:00"
Const DT_TYPENAME= "NOTESDATETIME"
Dim epochDT As New NotesDateTime(EPOCH_DATE)
Dim tempDT As New NotesDateTime(Now)
If(TypeName(dt) = DT_TYPENAME) Then
tempDT.LSLocalTime = dt.Lslocaltime
tempDT.LSLocalTime = dt
getTimestamp = cstr(tempDT.TimeDifference(epo [read] Keywords: lotus

Managed beans and the revenge of the ACL
Fri, Oct 14th 2011 7:11a Urs Meli Yesterday I started the upgrade process for pure notes client database. The plan was to put a xpage database besides the original notes db.
Instead of using views as datasources I tried to do it with beans.
Very simple: Xpages and managed beans When I openend the XPage, there was no data. So I put a lot of debug statements in my java code.
I could track it down until I found that Document doc = view.getFirstDocument(); returned alwas null. So I double checked the view: there were document [read] Keywords: acl
