Domino on Linux/Unix Start Script - New install location /opt/nashcom/startscript 

By Daniel Nashed | 7/18/19 3:15 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

From the feedback I got in the recent survey most admins want the start script in it's own location under /opt/nashcom. This change is needed to allow more flexibility and easier configuration. And in addition it is a preparation for Domino 11 where the /opt/ibm/domino standard install location will change.

Factory Tour DQL Performance Explanation 

By John D. Curtis | 7/18/19 1:22 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

The Andrews – Manby and Davis – presented the Domino AppDev work we’ve done and are doing for V11 and V12 this morning. There were several slides on DQL, one of which cited some performance gains in V11. I hope this brings a little clarity and sets expectations, because DQL is already wicked fast and getting faster.

Finding the time a message was send from the return receipt 

By Daniel Nashed | 7/17/19 2:51 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

We had an interesting and sort of funny support call this week. An user got a reply from a service database to confirm his request sent in by mail. The original message sent was a return receipt. But the sender said that there wasn't any received message, with that subject which could have generated a return receipt.

TDR – Summary Data 

By John D. Curtis | 7/12/19 12:44 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

“Data structures” is a course at institutions teaching programming and engineering everywhere in the world. It’s necessary because students will soon discover work done (often LONG) before their time that has placed data in memory and on disk in ways that vary a lot by usage and data contours.

Community written guides on OpenNTF wiki 

By Roberto Boccadoro | 7/10/19 4:42 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

In the collaboration community, a.k.a yellowverse, the need for step-by-step product guides, installation, tuning, etc… has always been present, not because the official documentation is bad, but because if you follow it, you have to jump from a place to another in order to finish the installation of a product. See for example the installation of Connections where the Knowledge Base tells you “install DB2” and points you to the DB2 KB, then “install WAS” and points you to the WAS KB, and so on.

Domino Backup which type of integration would you expect? 

By Daniel Nashed | 7/10/19 12:47 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

There have been a couple of other projects including Domino on Docker which took some time. So it took some time until I was able to look into the Backup project again. I have build a configuration, log and restore job database. It can be all in one database or in separate databases.

LotusScript and The “Static” Keyword 

By Paul Withers | 7/9/19 12:00 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

Moving from language to language, I'm constantly re-evaluating how coding improvements can be made to make the applications I work with more pleasurable and the code I write smarter. Unless a language has a narrow focus or limited power, there are likely to be aspects you've not dug into.

Installing Sametime 10 Limited Use 

By Gabriella Davis | 7/8/19 12:05 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

A slight delay on this blog, which I promised to write last week, but I have a good excuse. My original plan was to do an in-place upgrade as Sametime 10 is still 32bit-only enabling it to be upgraded on top of your existing Community Server so long as the underlying Domino install is at least 9.0.1 FP10 32bit.

The Mystery of the Duplicate Mail Folders 

By Hogne B. Pettersen | 7/6/19 9:17 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

A user contacted me and said that in the dialog box for moving an email to a folder, several of his folders were suddenly duplicated, but not in the left side menu in his Notes mail. This is how I found what had happened and managed to solve it. Usually you would just drag and drop an email into a folder in the left side menu in Notes.

HCL is doing so many things right, but... 

By Ben Langhinrichs | 7/3/19 12:58 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Overall, HCL has been doing a terrific job. They have revitalized Notes/Domino and fixed some longstanding bugs. They have worked with business partners better than IBM has in a long time. They have injected hope and enthusiasm, and have mostly met all the deadlines they've set for themselves. They have shown vision and commitment to future versions, and I see customers responding.

Sunday, 37°C and a move to a renitent Domino server 

By Oliver Busse | 7/1/19 12:17 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

Time was up to update my LE certificate for the Domino web server. Unfortunately Letsencrypt needs a more modern OS than I had to offer, even when trying to do it manually and without LE4D. I already had a Domino V10 installed on another host with CentOS, so I just had to change DNS entries and also some internet sites.

Domino Deletion Log Update for US timezones 

By Daniel Nashed | 6/27/19 2:54 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Matteo Bisi

There has been an issue in my Deletion Log Tool for US locales. I was surprised this did not come up earlier, because it is a quite general issue. The problem was that for US timezones the month and the date have different orders (MDY instead of DMY).

My thoughts on the HCL Redesigning Templates Project 

By Chris Toohey | 6/26/19 8:41 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Having absolutely no inside knowledge of whatever-is-going-on-lately in the world of IBM / HCL Lotus Notes & Domino, and coming solely from the perspective of an enterprise software developer who spends his day writing code across several different platforms but mostly still Notes & Domino with new development efforts using XPages, /*deep breath*/ here are a few thoughts on the recently announced HCL Templates Design Project.

Redesigning Templates – A HCL Design Project 

By Gabriella Davis | 6/26/19 2:27 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

I’m very pleased to announce the launch of a new project I am working on with HCL to reinvigorate the Notes and Domino templates as they roll out on new client platforms such as iPhone, tablet and a lightweight web client. See here for more information on the project.

By now, you are sure to have heard the news. Sametime Limited Use Version 10, announced at the end of May, is available for download on passport advantage. Customers with current entitlements to Notes/iNotes/Verse can download this new version of Sametime and deploy it to their users.

ISBG is Now NCUG – A Report From Stockolm 

By NCUG | 6/19/19 4:28 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Now that IBM has sold the entire collaboration portfolio to HCL, we could no longer call ourselves IBM Collaboration User Group (ISBG in Norwegian). And since we now have set ourselves the goal of becoming a user group for the entire Nordic region, it was time for a new name, a new strategy and a new logo.

Our current Deployment setup: Github + Jenkins + BuildXPages 

By Cameron Gregor | 6/18/19 9:33 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

I recently received a question from Patrick Kwinten about whether I am still using my BuildXPages project, and whether I have involved Jenkins in the setup. The answer is yes, I still use BuildXPages on a daily basis, and in regards to Jenkins, I have been using Jenkins for almost 5 years to build and deploy our XPages projects.
