IBM notified that IBM Lotus Notes 9.0.1 is available, as long as Domino 9.0.1 and Traveler 9.0.1
Just installed 9.0.1 on Macintosh Maveric, works fine. Has issue during installation, but was able to solve it with reinstall.
Cant wait our new server to upgrade 9.0-9.0.1 and Traveler new version.

Сitrix has very good solution for managing devices,
You can provision with VPN, WiFi passwords, push or suggest applications to users, and even to Remote Screen on phone (perfect for support people).
You can link Citrix MDM with your AD or Domino.
When you try to connect to Domino LDAP, on a group screen step 4/5 you may get error GROUP not found.
That because MDM try to find group in same container where users located.
Quick workaround, add our Organization at the end of group, like instead of MDM_Users and MDM_Admins use "MDM_Users/CYONE" and "MDM_Admins/CYONE".
You may get warning that "/" is not good idea to use in groups, but it will work ok. N.B. "/" used in xACL groups and it is ok.

Received newsletter from IBM this night, that functionality about removing old notes.ini value from client is postponed for FUTURE Releases.
This is currently a pain for admins, for example recent changes to SilentFailover in cluster will not work if previous notes.ini for silent failover exists
so if you want your users to have seamless (silent) failover, you need to remove old value and implement new. Else it will not work.
Why new notes.ini was introduced? I wrote an application that do some client tuning remotely (locations, hardware inventory of client, notes.ini settings, conditional notes.ini settings like "if version is Release 9.0, then implement this or remove parameter".
I think policy lack now some other functionality, like adding new workspace icon, (except Setup settings, which runs only once during workstation setup).
Seems to be not logical, sometime we miss some basic easy to implement features. Why is so?

Hi, Lotus Community.
I am planing to publish free open source solution based on Tivoli Directory Integrator, which will integrate Lotus Domino and Active Directory.
That is , accounts created in AD (in russian language AD means HELL) and then in Domino changes happens automatically.
My Idea for this solution, anyone with basic _LOTUS_ admin/developer knowledge can take advantage of it.
It is planned that solution will be 90% based on LotusScript, then I hope new niche for be found.
The idea is quite simple, dump all AD changes into a small temporary database called SuperProxy.
Then with LotusScript we process all changes in Domino.
So far my solution is able to
* Create New people (supports Clustered mailservers)
* Modify People (basic attributes, phone, email)
* Rename via AdminP
* Delete People
* Support Domino ID Vault
* Cert.id or Certificate Authority
* Has plane looking dashboard (at least I think it looks like in a plane), and shows progress of sync, so you all ways know if everything is ok, or you are in trouble (no sync during last X hours)
* Group Creating
* Group Modification
* Group Deletion
* Configurable settings, for new users
* Advanced Activity Log (what has been done)
* Built-in LotusScript Error log (nobody wants to look in console for prints, right? ;) )
Not sure if Group management in AD is good idea, but seems some people wish to do everything in AD.
It would be nice if people can share their requirements, like AD only management and they need only people sync, or groups only.
Or they use iNotes access, Directory Assistance to login with AD passwords in Domino iNotes, Traveler, etc?

I am reviewing one customer environment. Customer made a "Guest WiFi" as Resource that people can book for meetings.
If guests need WiFi, owner of the meeting receives WiFi credentials just before meeting.
Good and a bit unexpected way how Room and Resources can be used in Lotus Notes :)
