Download the correct images for IBM Connections can be easy if you know what you need to download.

IBM published the download document with image numbers and description.

If you want to develop applications with Calendaring & Scheduling you need to know how to create the several types of documents.

This TN has the list and description of the fields used by Notes/Domino

Today i can’t open the TDI Configuration Editon on one of my servers.

One dialog box appears with the error ” Review the .metadata\.log for details.”

To solve the problem:

Go to the <workspace>/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.resources/ directory.

If there is a .snap file, then delete or move to different location.

Setup SSO with Windows Desktop is not so hard. But when things is not well documented you can get a big headake.  A customer ask to implement this SSO. The environment was a WebSphere Portal V.8.0 cluster and the user repository was AD 2012.

I setup the system following several documents from IBM and other blogs.  The SSO just not work.

Searching a log for one  solution i found the following:

DES Encryption and Kerberos Authentication:
Starting with Windows Server 2008 R2, domain controllers (and domain members) will no longer allow DES encryption for Kerberos tickets. DES encryption was cracked last millennium, so it’s time to move on to better encryption mechanisms like AES.

http://blogs.technet.com/b/askpfeplat/archive/2013/06/03/upgrade-active-directory-to-windows-server-2012-phase-1-assessment.aspx

The solution was simple:

Before AD 2008  the keytab generation was:

ktpass –out appserver1.keytab –princ HTTP/[email protected] –mapuser wastest –pass password -ptype KRB5_NT_PRINCIPAL

For AD 2012 the keytab command line must include the encryption type other than DES and one supported by WebSphere V8.0.x.

I use the following:

ktpass –out appserver1.keytab –princ HTTP/[email protected] –mapuser wastest –pass password -ptype KRB5_NT_PRINCIPAL -crypto RC4-HMAC-NT

The RC4-HMAC-NT did the trick.

This document show the step by step i follow.

Today i found a solution for a customer migrating from Exchange to Domino/SmartCloud. He want to add signature using html on iNotes

You can use HTML within a iNotes signature by encapsulating all HTML tags within brackets [ ] to mark the text as pass-thru HTML.

If you use an image, the file must exist on a Web server that the iNotes client can access. For example, you can store the image within the domino/html directory of the Domino server and reference the image using the Web address such as http:// /

What follows is an example of HTML code to display a signature with a corporate logo:
[ <html><b>John Doe</b><br><i>Example Corp, Inc.<br>[email protected]</i><img src=”http://inotes_server.com/examplelogo.jpg”></img></html> ]

(Please note: There should be no spaces after the open bracket “[” or before the close bracket “]”. Spaces have been intentionally added to the above block of text in order to allow it to display correctly on the web, instead of being treated as pass-thru html.)

I add the html code using the field Simple Text and mark the Include signature…. as a simple text.

If you are not sure what your port number is, use the list-server-ports command to determine the port number. Change to the wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine/log. Run the list-server-ports task to generate the WebSphere_Portal_PortMatrix.txt file. For example: ./ConfigEngine.sh list-server-ports -DWasPassword=password.

Change to the /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/cw_profile/ConfigEngine. Run the list-server-ports task to generate the server1_PortMatrix.txt file. For example: ./ConfigEngine.sh list-server-ports -DWasPassword=password.

Bellow the content of PortalMatrix.txt file

Ports for WebSphere_Portal :
WC_defaulthost=10039
WC_adminhost=10038
WC_defaulthost_secure=10042
WC_adminhost_secure=10041
BOOTSTRAP_ADDRESS=10032
SOAP_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS=10033

During the configuration process, you might need to following URLs to access different administration user interfaces.

Use the following default URLs to access IBM® WebSphere Portal V8.5,  the WebSphere Integrated Solutions Console, and the Configuration Wizard:

IBM WebSphere Portal V8.5

http://localhost:10039/wps/portal

https://localhost:10042/wps/portal

WebSphere Integrated Solutions Console

http://localhost:10038/ibm/console

https://localhost:10041/ibm/console

Configuration Wizard

http://localhost:10200/ibm/wizard

https://localhost:10202/ibm/wizard

There are multiple vulnerabilities in IBM® SDK Java™ Technology Edition, Version 6 SR16FP7 that is used by IBM Notes and Domino. These issues were disclosed as part of the IBM Java SDK updates in October 2015. They are fixed as part of IBM® SDK Java™ Technology Edition, Version 6 SR16FP15.

A compressed file of your Liberty profile containing a server runtime environment, server configuration, and applications can be created using the included packaging wizard. Because a Liberty profile server is lightweight, it is useful to package up applications and the server in a compressed file. You can then store this package, distribute it to colleagues, use it to deploy the application to a different location or to another machine.

To package your Liberty profile environment:

  1. Stop the server.
  2. Right-click your Liberty profile server, and select Utilities > Package Server.
  3. In the Archive field on the Package Server panel, type a filename and path for your archive package, or click Browse to locate a filename and path. This filename can include a full path name.
  4. In the Include field, select one of these options, depending on what you want in your packaged file:
    • All server content, which includes binary files
    • Only server configuration and applications
  5. Click Finish

A smart host is a directory server to which SMTP-routed messages are sent when the message recipient cannot be found in the IBM® Lotus® Domino® Directory or other secondary directories configured on the server.

Typically, a smart host is used in organizations that employ multiple mail systems within a single Internet domain. Users on these systems may not be in the Domino Directory. For example, if some users are on a UNIX® sendmail system but their inbound messages are routed through the Domino mail system, you can set up a smart host to ensure proper address resolution.

Last week i need to setup a kind of odd routing.  I need to relay messages sent to Domino users to an Smart Host.  This routing is odd because the users exist on Domino Directory with the same smtp domain.

On the person document set mailsystem to Other Internet Mail and Internet Address and Forward Address to the same address like [email protected]

Configure the Smart Host on the server configuration document

You can have Domino add a phrase to the sender’s address on outbound SMTP mail and specify the name component to use as the address phrase. By default, addresses do not include phrases. If you choose not to support phrase-style addresses, you can specify that Domino remove any user-added phrases in the recipient fields of outbound messages.

You configure this address format using the “RFC822 phrase handling” field in the Configuration Settings document, under the MIME – Advanced – Advanced Outbound Message Options tab.

The Router adds phrases to Internet addresses both when taking the address from a Person document in the Domino Directory and when constructing the address from rules in the Global domain document.

This setting applies to messages sent over SMTP to another host or exported to the IMAP or POP3 service. It does not apply to messages delivered to mail files on the server or messages transferred over IBM® Lotus® Notes® routing.

The options for this field are as follows:

  • Do not add phrase — (Default setting) Outbound mail displays the sending user’s RFC 821 address. The Router permits user-defined phrases in recipient addresses.
  • Use DN as phrase — Constructs an RFC 822-style address using a phrase part derived from the person’s hierarchical, distinguished name; for example, John Jones/Sales/ACME <[email protected]>. The Router permits user-defined phrases in recipient addresses.
  • Use alt. name if available – otherwise DN — If an Alternate name is specified in the user’s Person document, constructs an RFC 822-style address using it as the phrase part; otherwise uses the hierarchical, distinguished name; for example, “John Jones/Sales/ACME” <[email protected]>. The Router permits user-defined phrases in recipient addresses.
  • Remove Phrase – The Router strips user-defined phrases in recipient addresses. Only RFC 821-style addresses are allowed.
  • Use CN as phrase — Constructs an RFC 822-style address using a phrase part derived from the person’s common name; for example, John Jones <[email protected]>. The Router permits user-defined phrases in recipient addresses.
