IBM, please fix the Feature Packs installations! 

By Roberto Boccadoro | 9/6/17 2:53 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Every time there is a HotFix applied on top of a FixPack or Feature Pack, the installation of the new version of the FP fails. It says it found the wrong version. You have to uninstall the HotFix reverting back to the Base FP, then you can upgrade to the newest FP.

Replacing Lotus is…. complex 

By Keith Strickland | 9/4/17 3:31 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

If you followed Peter’s series on replacing Lotus he outlined some of the pitfalls, processes and decision points to undertake for success. I wanted to point out the technical side to a lot of those decisions. The short answer is that you need a tool to surface your domino data en-masse until such a time when decisions are made on each application. I have been working on that solution for quite some time now and I have to say, it’s complex.

Domino 9.0.1 FP9 SMTP Issue 

By Daniel Nashed | 8/31/17 4:31 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Last Friday a friend contacted me about a SMTP issue. I was able to reproduce the root cause of the issue but the emails I receive still look OK. So it depends on your STMP configuration how much impact this issue has in your infrastructure with FP9.

IBM Domino, a very annoying performance issue now SOLVED 

By Jesper Kiær | 8/29/17 3:03 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

For the past years a customer of mine has had IBM Domino performance issues with a Domino Server. The issue concerned was really felt when working with attachments. The company has small offices around the world, so we use SmartUpgrade (which in general works well) to manage Notes Feature Pack upgrades.

Midpoints LE4Domino - a closer look 

By Oliver Busse | 8/25/17 1:58 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

2 days ago Ulrich Krause and Detlev Poettgen posted about Midpoints' free NSF-based tool for all of us running a Domino server with an SSL certificate from Let's Encrypt. If you are not familiar with this service: they offer SSL certifcates for free, valid for 90 days. You have to re-new the certificates after that period which is not that convenient. Midpoints' tool fixes that problem by automating the process for you.

Notes, Domino, The Cloud and Performance 

By Paul Withers | 8/24/17 10:44 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Over the last month or so, I’ve been working on an application that pushes performance quite a bit. Last week I published a blog post about aspects of developing for performance. I’ll be writing a future blog post (maybe more than one) on the approaches I’ve taken for performance. But in this blog post I want to take a step back and discuss why I had to address performance, even after quite a bit of optimisation from the initial development.

Announcing - Lets Encrypt for Domino - Just Do SSL 

By Detlev Poettgen | 8/23/17 11:25 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

o enable HTTPS on your website, you need to get a certificate from a public Certificate Authority (CA). Let’s Encrypt is such a CA, which offers free trusted certificates. The only limit is that the certificates expire after 90 days. But you can renew them as often as you like.

What is the SIZE of a Docker container? 

By Ulrich Krause | 8/21/17 1:31 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

I recently was asked, if it is possible to tell the size of a container and, speaking of disk-space, what are the costs when running multiple instances of a container. Let’s take the IBM Domino server from my previous post as an example.

IBM Notes and Domino 9.0.1 : It's a great time to be a Domino Customer or Consultant ! 

By Matteo Bisi | 8/21/17 1:19 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

Some days ago IBM has released the Feature pack 9 for Notes and Domino with some nice new feature and bug fixes. Now I'd like to spend some lines to anticipate some features/update that will be released starting next month in one of the most exciting time for IBM Domino customers and partners ! Starting from FP10 ( read the Bill Malchisky blogpost ) , we will have the IBM support to run Domino inside a Docker container.

Domino on Docker 

By Ulrich Krause | 8/20/17 5:39 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

IBM recently announced Docker support for Domino. It is supposed to come with FP10 at the end of this year. Domino IMHO is not a microservic, but Domino on Docker has other advantages. Think about a support person maintaining a product. All he needs to investigate a customer’s issue is the data from the customer and a Domino environment that is known to run the application stable.
