      IBM Application (nsf) that will help to identity which apps will be affected by removal of Java Plugin support inside browsers

      Vladislav Tatarincev  30 January 2017 09:55:44
      Since many browsers cancel support of Java plugins (NAPI) - Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface some IBM Domino application might be affected.

      IBM Has posted an application that is doing search across Domino server, analyzing applications. So if you have thousands of app, no need to think, which apps will stop working soon, due to removal of Java support in browser.

      If you have some development skills, you can customize it to search any other info, or design elements.  for example obsolete functions, or OS specific files, like *.dll

      Thanks IBM for very nice asset.

        Copy Paste from Microsoft Word to IBM Notes creates garbage characters if copied text is different from local Windows locale.

        Vladislav Tatarincev  11 January 2017 15:05:54
        If you are lucky to live in country where more than language is used, then if you Windows locale points to one language, but in Microsoft Word you copy another language text to IBM Notes this text is garbaged.
        Reported by one of our clients, we opened PMR with IBM, and IBM has found issue in code, and working on solving this issue.

        so far look will be fixed this month, and I hope will be included in 9.0.1.FP8 . SPR is GTONAGLGBT


        2 factor authentication for IBM Verse on Premise

        Vladislav Tatarincev  10 January 2017 09:45:00
        IBM Verse on Premise has been release and many clients may feel that more and more users are using VERSE ON PREMISE, and more and more clients ask if Verse on Premise support 2FA. (2 factor authentication).

        If you are located in Europe, You may know that EU regulation says that till 1 June 2018, WebBased systems (like webmail), that contain sensitive data MUST have 2 factor authentication deployed. Penalty for not complying this rule is 20millions or % from revenue. More details on this is here Update : http://data.europa.eu/eli/reg/2016/679/oj

        Holes in software found everyday, and protecting you email with 2 factor authentication is a logical step to increase security of system. Some people think that hackers are so powerfull they can impact even elections ;)

        CYONE has solution called SMS login which provides 2FA for iNotes, and now also supports IBM Verse. We been IBM Verse on Prem client during beta program and solution works perfectly.
        Our development team is adding more and to solution, new ways of delivering code, not only SMS and OTP (like Microsoft or Google Authenticator).

        More information can be found on company website https://www.cyone.lv/products/two-factor-authentication-ibm-lotus-domino-web-inotes/

        This solution is used by many clients all over the world. We are also looking for local  resellers. Sign up, for trial! or become a reseller!

        If you experience Calendar sync issues on IBM Traveler, read this (Apple bug workaround)

        Vladislav Tatarincev  25 November 2016 17:11:05
        If you are iOS user, or just Traveler Admin, users may complain about Calendar is not properly syncing to user.
        Traveler user reset command, may solve this for a while, but then problema reapears.

        Solution in Apple bug are described in this technote http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1LO84144

        Thank you IBM, you made workaround for this.NTS_CALENDAR_DELETEADD_APPLE_APPOINTMENTS=true  notes.ini should be set on Traveler to fix issue.
        New Calendar records will arrive properly.

          Error: ’The internet address for this user is not unique’ when registering a new user

          Vladislav Tatarincev  1 November 2016 13:57:54
          In one of my IBM Tivoli Directory Integrator projects, I faced strange issue,  Users no longer registered in IBM Domino. Error message was Error: 'The internet address for this user is not unique'

          Luckily solution was working fine for few weeks, this gave me a hit that this is not a bug in my TDI solution, or LotusScript agent that does real registration, but some where else.
          In this customer case, they created user in Active Directory, and then TDI did remaining (registration, modification, renaming, blocking, deleting) in IBM Domino.

          Last thing added to clients configuration was added Directory Assistance, to allow users login with AD Passwords. Since data / user was born in AD, they also been set a internet Address like "name.surname@company.com"
          When you have Directory Assistance configured, Domino will check if user is unique not only in Domino, but (!!! TADAM) in AD also. if not unique, Notes Registration will fail.

          I opened a PMR with IBM and they confirmed that I was true, that issue is caused by Directory Assistance. IBM has a SPR - SPR # ELAV9NKRDA Title: Enhancement Request: Option to disable Internet Address lookup on secondary/external directories during user registration
          There is an official IBM Technote http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21279561 which says nothing about Directory Assistance, and a bit missleading, that user was registered while ago.


          The workaround IBM Suggested and it is easy to implement and it is simple.
          when registering user, set  
          reg.MailInternetAddress = "SPR_ELAV9NKRDA"+OriginalEmailAddress
          call RegisterNewUser

          then when user is registered, get a names.nsf user record and change
          doc.internetAddress = OriginalEmailAddress.
          Doc.save(false,false)

          Since it took some :) of my time, hope google will index it and will help somebody.







            Error processing certificate request: Certificate configuration set in ICL has been corrupted. Only 1 CaConfiguration document should exist.

            Vladislav Tatarincev  17 October 2016 15:29:28
            Faced one issue during one Domino implementation, by some reason Certificate Authority was used and CA document got duplicated somehow.
            I used ScanEZ from YTRIA to get UNID of old(unneeded) CA document, made backup and was able to solve problem with this script placed in script.

            Since it was not described anywhere, hope google will index it, and will avoid you opening PMR :)
