Thou shall not use email for error logging
Urs Meli    

divHi/divdiv /divdivOne customers domino server was very slow. A short view showed a lot of mails waiting. show server told about 25000 Mails pending./divdivPop3 and router were hanging (maybe I should have waited more than a minute to let them quit.... ) so I restarted the server./divdivAfter the restart I stopped the router task and pop3. Each of the 3 mail.box files contained around 43000 messages. br /br //divdivSo 130000 messages were pending. 130000 error messages saying something like quot;error in module xyz on server ZZZquot;/divdivAfter making some phonecalls the responible person for the server was found. He had moved a program to a new server. /divdivOn the server was an old version of some kind of dll installed. That resulted in an endless loop, sending all the messages to one person.br /br /The customer has journaling activated, so all the error messages were delivered to a quot;archivequot; server. Result was 130000 mails pending, 120000 delivered to journaling.nsf/divdivIt seems that the pop3 task was the reason for the troubles. The 3rd party archive solution uses pop3 to archive the notes mails. It can get 50 mails per minute./divdiv /divdiv /divdivLesson learned: e-mail should not be used for error messages.  /divdiv /divdiv /divdivAnd for the discussion administrator vs. developer: Dont blame each other or argue, educate each other instead. So you can avoid the confrontations with your most feared enemy: the user.....br /br /br //divdiv /divdiv /divdiv /divdivbr //divdiv /div

Centos 7 - VM Ware Player
Sat, Aug 2nd 2014 2:14p   Urs Meli
I tested centos 7 on my vmware player. When I added a second network card, it was not detected from centos. A long journey through the internet began... I tried a lot of things... lspci showed both network cards, but the NetworkManager did not recognize the second NIC. The first card was an Intel, the second a AMD. I found a note that the support for this AMD card in Centos / RHEL 7 is dropped. In the VMWare Player config I could not change the type of nic. I had to edit my .vmx file [read] Keywords: centos network vm vmware

DIIOP - TDI
Tue, May 13th 2014 6:12a   Urs Meli
When Klaus Bild tried to implement the synchronization between our AD and the Domino, see here. We had some issues. The TDI scripts were working correctly on the test systems, but not in our productive environment. First we had this error CTGDKC065E Unable to execute Domino Action. NotesException occurred: ID=4,000, Error Text=Notes error: The disk drive specified for the ID file is not ready. After some research about DIIOP I finally discovered the "tell diiop dump config" command. Th [read] Keywords: domino notes notes client traveler server

Yesterday I ran in a strange error. There's this website in xpages, you click a button, which will open a new xpage form. After the page has been saved you should return to the first xpage. The submit button was very simple The funny part was, that the page which opened was just a small part from the first page. Further investigation showed that this small part was inside an iFrame inside custom control. The solution to this is simple. The before [read] Keywords: xpages development

XPages Mobile with offline Data - Caveat
Thu, Apr 17th 2014 6:09a   Urs Meli
I had to create an simple Xpages Mobile app which should only show some information online and offline. The webapp is built with Xpages Mobile controls and the openntf java api. The fun began when I got to the offline version. I went through the examples on openntf.org and implemented all the necessary stuff. Now the fun began. Testing the offline function on the device turned out to be very frustrating. In chrome you could use the url chrome://appcache-internals to view the applicatio [read] Keywords: domino xpages application css development firefox iphone java mobile openntf security server wiki

Fun with Xpages
Wed, Dec 18th 2013 10:09a   Urs Meli
I created a small XPage with only one link element inside. The URL is something like "mailto:have@fun.com". Opening the page in a browser is boring, as it works like you would expect. Opening the same page in XPINC, the fun began. After around 40 Internet Explorers had been opened, I had to shutdown my VM :-) [read] Keywords: xpages vm

Update to Notes 9.0.1 on Ubuntu 13.04 x64
Thu, Oct 31st 2013 6:10a   Urs Meli
According to this Link Ubuntu should be supported for 9.0.1. So I tried to upgrade my Notes 9.0 on ubuntu 13.04. First I tried the smartupgrade.sh without success. Some dependency problems. Next I changed the DEBIAN/CONTROLS file in the ibm-notes-9.0.1.i586.deb file according to this link (Step 3). The newly created ibm-notes-9.0.1.i586.deb file installed fine. After that, all the other packages installed too. Upgradeing was much easier than installing Notes 9.0 in the first place :- [read] Keywords: ibm lotus notes smartupgrade ubuntu

Fun with word 2013 - Calibri from hell
Wed, Aug 28th 2013 5:57a   Urs Meli
Exporting Data from Notes to Word seems to be an easy task. Filling the document. replacing some tags with data, formatting the document, creating the TOC. Works fine, unless I try to save...... The default font is set back to Calibri, the padding changes... The whole layout just breaks.... First I thought, I broke something with my coding. I displayed the word document before I saved it. Everything is how it should be. Saveing the document, close word, reopen the document and the layout is [read] Keywords: notes bleedyellow bleedyellow.com database

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 iphone server

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 traveler archiving archive server
