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".

End of APNS (Apple Push notifications) support in Sametime V9 or V10 environments (Nov 2020)  

By Ales Lichtenberg | 9/16/20 4:38 AM | Infrastructure - Sametime | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

After November 2020, APNS (Apple Push notifications) will no longer work in Sametime V9 or V10 environments. Apple will drop support for the legacy APNS protocol that is used in Sametime V9 and V10. If you require mobile APNS (Apple Push Notification), Sametime will need to be upgraded to HCL Sametime v11.

Avoid deleting users who left company from Reader/Authors fields and NAMES fields  

By Vladislav Tatarincev | 9/16/20 12:55 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

If you have ACL ACTION "MODIFY ALL NAMES FIELDS, OR READERS AUTHORS FIELDS" then upon user rename, user is renamed by adminp in names fields and security fields. Drawback is when user is leaving company and admin deletes user, if you have this setting enabled, then user will be deleted from all Names fields or Readers/Authors fields. Which may lead to strange documents, like Approved by "Empty string", because person who approved left company and adminp deleted him from field. Which is not ok, since breaks logic and compliance, we have to know who accepted document.

HCL Domino DirSync & the ‘&’  

By Ulrich Krause | 9/14/20 3:07 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Yesterday, Martin Vogel from sirius-net GmbH sent me an email and asked for help with HCL Domino DirSync. He had an issue with the filter syntax and also encountered some strange error messages when trying to sync from an Active Directory to Domino Directory. Let’s first see, what the problem with the filter is. By default, DirSync syncs all person and group objects under the given SearchBase. If you only want to get a subset of the possible results, you can use a filter in the DirSync Configuration document. Here is the filter. (&(objectClass=person)(memberOf=CN=DistributionGroup,CN=Services & Accounts,CN=Sync,DC=ad,DC=fritz,DC=box))

By Remco Angioni | 9/14/20 3:05 AM | Infrastructure - Connections | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

When enabling SAML authentication, we discovered that the documentation from HCL is not complete, perhaps because some links to IBM are no longer valid. There are some important bits missing in the configuration. This is the documentation from HCL: Authenticate using SAML What is missing?

I had the opportunity to try the implementation of HCL Sametime Meetings 11.5. Pre-Release. I tried to build on the previous step by step manual to implement HCL Sametime V11. I created a similar tutorial, which was created during my test deployment. Maybe it will help some again.

Sametime Meeting 11.5 installation on Docker  

By Roberto Boccadoro | 9/4/20 5:28 AM | Infrastructure - Sametime | Added by Oliver Busse

Since in my test environment I do not have a proper domain name I had to tweak a bit some configuration settings in order to make the installation work; this can be useful if you want to setup a Meeting server inside your network using a domain like .local instead of your company real domain and hosts file instead of DNS.

The Out Of Memory Mystery In Notes 11  

By Julian Robichaux | 9/4/20 1:25 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Some of our customers who upgraded to Notes 11 have experienced out of memory errors in the Notes client. Sometimes it was a message box that said there is not enough free memory, sometimes it was a hang with errors in the trace log. It generally happened after the client had been open for a while, and often when opening MIME emails that were sent from the Internet or clicking on links to open an external browser. If users were logged in to Sametime, it was more likely to happen. The weird thing about this: • The computer had plenty of available memory, and • Task Manager showed that Notes was using a normal amount of memory, maybe 250MB or so. What the heck was going on, and what can we do to fix it?

By Ales Lichtenberg | 9/4/20 1:22 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Do you see it in any Notes application: “Field is too large (32K) or View’s column & selection formulas are too large“? As of Domino / Notes 9.0.x, there is a solution to get rid of this “error” and increase the limit to 16 MB.

ST 11.5 Meetings Preview on Docker  

By Daniel Nashed | 9/4/20 1:20 AM | Infrastructure - Sametime | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

ST Meetings is finally available as a preview. I looked into the installation and with some minor tweaks and tips you should get it working. Once you know how it works a Docker setup has really some advantages. The documentation hopefully evolves over time https://help.hcltechsw.com/sametime/11.0.2/admin/t_deployment_docker.html Let me give you some feedback from what I just did. It's not a complete installation instruction. Just my side notes to complement the documentation and it could help when troubleshooting. Once you know how it works it just needs a couple of minutes to be up and running. (It's a test environment with a default cert for now)
