Installing Domino on Linux - Resolving Missing Requirements

Recently, I was installing the Domino 9.0 Social Edition on a new CentOS 6 Linux install. It started very smoothly, the CentOS install went very well and the system updates worked flawlessly. I prepped the notes user and group and was ready to install the Domino code. Then it came to a screeching stop. The installer stopped with the message below: To run this installer you need 32bit (i686) packages installed on your 64 bit Linux Redhat. [Read More]

SNTT: Creating Quickr Entry Places

In a tweet a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that Chris W and I were testing out creating Quickr Entry places, and how much fun admins have creating XML. To create an entry place you use a qptool command that requires either individual user email addresses, or you can use an XML file to create places in batch mode. Gee, seems like fun, manually creating and XML file that looks like (adapted from the Quickr InfoCenter): [Read More]

SNTT: Sending New Users a Welcome Email

I’ve been using this agent for a few months to send new users a welcome email that includes links to common tips on using Notes, a link to the Tips database, and a link the email signature creator application. The sent message is “prettified” with HTML, so it looks nice. It’s also personalized to the user. There’s always room for improvement, specifically, moving the actual message text into a document to make it easier to maintain. [Read More]

DST and Mail Agents

I was prepping for the DST agents yesterday and thought, “Hey, this would make a great tip.” Seems that Susan Bulloch thought so as well and beat me to the punch. Check out her post on how to build the text file used by the centralized agent. One other item that I’ll add is that sometimes the mailfiles in the Domino Directory don’t have the .nsf extension on them, and the technote at least indicates that this is required. [Read More]

Domino Server Security Setting

Going through the Notes discussion forum yesterday, I came upon a discussion questioning why access is different between NRPC and HTTP clients. The question was why a user couldn’t access a server using a Notes client, but could using a browser. The responses thus far had pointed the user to the correct place to look - a deny access group that the user had been added to inadvertantly. I was surprised to see the responder say that NRPC and HTTP access is controlled differently, but not mention that it had been changed in a recent release. [Read More]

SNTT: Multi Version on iSeries

It’s still Thursday here, so I can still categorize it as SNTT. I got an email from someone who attended my session at the ADMIN2006 conference regarding multi-versioning and how to configure a new server to use an older release of Domino. Here’s the email (not a native English writer, so be nice): We have got i5 with Domino 6.5.4 and 7 running. How can I install a new 6. [Read More]

SNTT: How Many Mail.boxes Do You Need

Here’s a tip from one of the sessions I gave at ADMIN2006. We all know that to allow the best performance for mail routing, you want to have multiple mail.boxes, and that usually means setting the number to 2 mail.boxes. The question then becomes, how do you determine when it’s time to increase the number of mail.boxes to increase performance again, other than by “feel.” There are two statistics that we’ll want to look at which provide the values for a calculation, but in order to monitor them, you’ll need to already have enabled at least two mail.
