K8s Certificate Manager with Let’s Encrypt

Domino certificate manager works like a charm and is the best option for native Domino 12 certificate management.

It turned out the issues I ran into only occurred because of a messed up k3s installation. After I re-created my server, I was ready to go in minutes.

Automatic Lock/unlock on opening files

So suggestions were made and requests sent in by multiple people. And with the March 2022 release it was finally implemented. There is now the option to be prompted to lock a file on opening it.

While I'm during this job, I prefer to use the dbt.jar for database migrations because this could help me to identify and fix issue at db schema level. In this migrations I had some issue with Wikis, Files (the same for both db) and Metrics
