HCL Notes Connections Plug-In – Login via SPNEGO not possible

If you are trying to use SPNEGO as the means for authenticating HCL Notes Connections Plug-In and you run into an issue, check if "Use the alias host name for the application server" option is used on Websphere Application Server and if that is the case try turning it off.

HCL Domino – Default LTPA Token  

By Milan Matejic | 10/19/20 3:07 AM | Infrastructure - Sametime | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

I came across an HCL Domino environment with HCL Sametime where the Sametime embedded clients were logging in via LTPA but with a different authentication server than the Sametime Community server. As you can imagine, this was important to keep in mind during a Sametime migration. The Domino server used for authenticating Sametime clients is also hosting multiple websites and using multiple LTPA tokens, so the question was, which LTPA token is actually used for authenticating the Sametime clients.

Creating an LTPA Token – Without WAS Network Deployment Server

Recently I was installing an HCL Sametime 11 environment from scratch. I always tend to implement a single LTPA Token across the Domino, Sametime and/or Connections environment. It is also a very good idea to use only the LTPA Token version 2, as it is more secure, but this also means that the LTPA Token has to be created by a WebSphere server.

HCL Sametime – Creating a Name Change Task without Sametime System Console  

By Milan Matejic | 10/2/20 3:13 AM | Infrastructure - Sametime | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

In the HCL Sametime version 11 there is no System Console, which means that the Name Change tasks have to be created directly in the "stnamechange.nsf" database. This process is not documented. After trying to reinvent the wheel and failing gloriously, I decided to write a blog post about it. :-)

HCL Connections – URL Preview Tip

If you have implemented or planing to implement the "URL Preview" feature for HCL Connections, make sure you import the Root Certificate for "Let’s Encrypt" certificate authority inside the java trust store. By default, the root certificate of "Let’s Encrypt" certificate authority is not in the java trust store which the HCL

HCL Safelinx – Untrusted Certificate Issue  

By Milan Matejic | 9/22/20 7:25 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

A few days ago I came across a rather weird issue with HCL Safelinx and HCL Domino. After setting up HCL Safelinx, it was not possible to access the Websites hosted by an HCL Domino Server. The user would just get an HTTP Error, "503 - Service Unavailable".
