Weekend Project "Domino on Docker Update" 

By Daniel Nashed | 4/15/19 4:01 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

There are a couple of updates pending for the offical IBM Docker project --> https://github.com/IBM/domino-docker Support for 10.0.1 FP1 Support for Domino Community Edition Preparation for supporting add-on products like "Traveler", "VOP", "AppDevPack" and later maybe "Sametime" Making software downloads more reliable and provide better error checking Install Log checking for installed software Official implementation of the Domino on Dock management script. The main challenge is proper version support without having multiple dockerfiles. So I am working on a way to have the version tags and the installation files outside the dockerfile. Lables and variables can be passed to the docker build command and overrwrite default settings.

Domino 10.0.1 FP1 SAML, iNotes, Traveler, ID-Vault working together 

By Daniel Nashed | 4/9/19 9:51 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

There is an issue in Domino 9.0.1 FP10 and earlier which Milan Matejic posted about and there is also an official technote related to it. When I read the post I was sort of confused because there are also changes in Domino 10.0.1 FP1 which sound very similar. I had a pending post for FP1 for more detailed information for the notes.ini parameters added.

Traveler server not connecting to Microsoft SQL Server using only TLS 1.2 

By Daniel Nashed | 4/9/19 9:50 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

There is a new issue that Detlev Pöttgen has already reported in detail about on his blog including the work-around. Current MS SQL Servers do only support TLS 1.2 and the JDBC Driver used on the Traveler Server does not open a TLS 1.2 session by default. This impacts Traveler configuration with the travelerutil and also operating your server -- if the SQL server is updated to a version that supports TLS 1.2 only!

Domino Backup Feedback, Requirements and my new project 

By Daniel Nashed | 4/5/19 2:48 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

As a consultant I see many Domino environments every year and the topic "Domino Backup" is coming up regularly. Today there are still Domino servers not being backuped with Domino supported backup applications! And I even see servers without Domino transaction logging enabled!! It's really a best practice and requirement to enable transaction logging for any type of Domino server for data consistency and concurrent access to databases -- even you are not leveraging point in time recovery and incremental backup when transaction logging is configured in archive style mode!

HCL releases 10.0.1 FP1 and AppDev Pack 1.0.1 

By Daniel Nashed | 4/1/19 3:25 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Matteo Bisi

Just in time before of Q1 HCL releases the following two updates: 1. Notes/Domino 10.0.1 FP1 This is a FixPack not a FeaturePack. In contrast to 9.0.1 with the FeaturePacks IBM/HCL went back to a full release cycle which makes a lot of sense. We will see an new version every year with quaterly FixPacks and if needed Interims Fixes (IFs) for the released versions. This is the first fixpack. The release notes have been already published but they are not final. There could be additional fixes that are not listed yet.

My two cents about HCL 

By Daniel Nashed | 3/31/19 10:08 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

It has been a surprise for us that HCL is taking over Notes/Domino and most other collaboration products completely from IBM. The deal is not yet effective (hopefully beginning of June) and it should be "business as usual" until then. But we already see what we can expect from HCL taking over the complete portfolio including product strategy, sales and customer relationship.
