Quick Domino Tip: Clear the Password on a Server ID with a Minimum Password Length 

By John Oldenburger | 3/26/19 10:35 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

We are currently transferring our current 32-bit Domino Server to a 64-bit Domino Server. The 64 bit Domino Server will eventually run on a Windows 2016 64 bit OS. With this 'move' we are well prepared for a possible upgrade to Domino 10 in the near future. Since we are going to perform a reinstall or move to a new server we need, among others, the server ID of the current Domino server. In my next blog post I will describe how to move a Domino server to a new server in detail. In this blog post a quick tip regarding clearing the password on a server ID with a minimum password length. I needed this to set up a Domino server to launch without prompting for the password so the server reboots after power failures and crashes. Below the simple steps to clear the password from a server ID.

ID Vault: default certificate expiration is on the way 

By Fabio Di Paola | 3/25/19 11:05 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Starting from version 8.5 of Domino the ID Vault has been introduced, a feature that we know very well. And the release of v8.5 dates back to exactly 10 years ago (January 2009). This is not a problem: it means that the ID Vault is now a stable and widely used feature, nevertheless it also hides a latent problem.

APNs Certificate used for Traveler 9.0.1.21 Expires 

By John Oldenburger | 3/21/19 4:44 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

As mentioned before the APNs certificate implemented in IBM Notes Traveler 9.0.1.21 expires on March 30. Apple Push Notification Service, commonly referred to as Apple Notification Service or APNS, is a platform service created by Apple Inc. that enables third party application developers to send push notifications to iOS users. After March 30 the Push Notifications for Apple iOS devices will no longer work with the current certificate for Notes Traveler 9.0.1.21. The only solution is to upgrade to Notes Traveler 10.0 or 10.0.1 to get the current APNs certificate

Implementing Cluster Replication From Domino to Darwino 

By Jesse Gallagher | 3/19/19 10:30 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

Since its inception, Darwino has had two-way replication between it and Domino, and it's evolved over the years in fidelity and configurability. Recently, I was able to check an item off the to-do list that I've wanted for a while: "cluster-style" replication from Domino, where a document change immediately kicks off replication to Darwino.

By Ales Lichtenberg | 3/15/19 4:23 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

IBM mail support for MS Outlook (IMSMO) is a tool that allows MS Outlook users to synchronize mail, calendar with Domino server.

Preventing “Build Automatically” Via Policy

As one of the first steps in XPages training I cover making configuration and settings changes to Domino Designer to optimise your experience. One of those is switching off Build Automatically. Unless your day-to-day ID only has Editor or below access to applications, sooner or later having Build Automatically enabled will cause problems.

Notes Auto Update - Using the AUT Catalog to Upload new Notes Versions 

By John Oldenburger | 3/12/19 5:13 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

In my previous blog post Domino 10.0.1. - Notes Auto Update - Introduction and Configuration Document AUT Servers I described how to create a Configuration document for AUT servers.

This week I’ve spent a hugely beneficial amount of time at the HCL Factory Tour Episode 2. As with the previous factory tour, the ability to get quality time with key individuals from HCL and IBM, as well as not only hear but feed back on progress is invaluable.

And obviously it was a great opportunity to have influential discussions regarding OpenNTF and open source, discussions that would normally have happened at IBM Think.
