Migration to IBM Cloud is easy for mail,calendar, todo, since IBM Has great tools for free (Transcend Migrator)

Vladislav Tatarincev  23 September 2016 10:16:28
We are migrating customers from alternative systems to IBM Cloud, Provisioning of users is easy, you can do it manually, use IBM (Security) Tivoli Directory Integrator, CSV or many other options.
While migration of mail was possible using free tools like ImapSYNC (in case user has mail avaialble on server), but local mail, custom mail formats,  calendar, todo has always been a challenge.

One of leaders in Migration tools is Transcend https://www.transend.com/company-info/
Since now cloud becomming more popular for small companies, I was plesantly surpised to know that if you are migrating to IBM Cloud, you can get Transcend Migration software for free (licence cost are covered by IBM).
Great move IBM, You can migrate users from Microsoft cloud, GMAIL, many other vendors, various formats and mailsystem supported, Batch support.


If you are migrating to IBM Cloud, please get in touch with Transcend People, they will connect to right people in IBM, to get your free licence for migration to IBM Cloud.

Keep on Rocking, IBM!

2 factor authentication for IBM Domino iNotes and HTTP

Vladislav Tatarincev  21 June 2016 16:46:30

Our company has designed solution that protects IBM iNotes/Webmail and Domino Web Applications a with 2 factor authentication. After logging in with regular password and login, user receives unique code via SMS or alternative email, or it can be generated  with OneTime Password Software generators, for example Google Authenticator(https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/1066447?hl=en).
We have few clients using this for two years already. Every quarter we  add new features. Many clients who need additional security or need to be compliant with PCI DSS will love this software.
This 2 factor authentication can be enabled globally, or for some users only.

Installation and configuration of solution takes around 1 hour, so this is easy to try. Till 31.Dec.2016 we have competitive upgrade offering from other vendors with 50% discount.

As well we are looking for IBM Business Partner who can resell it , and we give internal use licences to our resellers.
More info on SMS Login can be found here https://www.cyone.lv/products/two-factor-authentication-ibm-lotus-domino-web-inotes/

    input languge changes to other / wrong language when using Microsoft Remote Desktop from Mac OS X

    Vladislav Tatarincev  7 April 2016 11:21:28
    For 5 years I am happy Mac user. But one things was very annoying is connecting from My Machine to Windows Servers since I do some administration.

    I live in Latvia, while I am Russian. I know four languages Latvian, Russian, English and French. I have Latvian, Russian and English configured on my Mac,  but when I connect to Windows Server, all of a sudden, Microsoft selects for me Lithuanian Language, on remote server. Lithuanian keyboard layout is not matching Latvian layout, so every time you type a command it is typing wrong symbols.
    For people who do programming in Microsoft, Latvia and Lithuania are two independent countries, with their own languages. Latvia and Lithuania are part of Europe. Europe is a territory on the opposite side of Atlantic Ocean.
    Microsoft programmer who made this bug should wonder - Wow! There are countries except ours?

    Anyway, yesterday I found solution, it is configured on remote server. Solution is ok for your servers, but every news server should be reconfigured. May be some one knows hot to change this on Mac level.
    You should create a key in  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout
    Key name is      IgnoreRemoteKeyboardLayout
    Type of key is REG_DWORD
    and value is 1

    Hope it will kelp you :)

    Vladislav Tatarincev  24 February 2016 21:04:40
    My colleague Alexander K., has noticed that latest version of IBM Verse that arrived today, has notification sound fixed.
    Previously when new mail has arrived, there was no option to hear that you have new mail if you are using Verse client.

    Now it works like charm! Upgrade to 9.3.2 version, that arrived on 24FEB2016.

    We reported this issue many time from different clients, I am happy it is solved now. :)
