Lotus Notes

Lotus Notes 8 Beta: Client overview

IBM Lotus Notes 8 offers major enhancements to the core functionality of Lotus Notes, and adds innovative new features which represent a major shift in the way people communicate and collaborate.

Lotus Notes 8 presents the end user with a dynamic work environment which can be tailored to the user's roles and responsibilities. Built on IBM's version of the Eclipse Rich Client Platform, Lotus Notes 8 was developed on a componentized service-oriented architecture (SOA). As a result, Lotus Notes 8 is more extensible and, as a server-managed client, less time-consuming to administer.

The core functions of Lotus Notes - Mail, Calendaring, and Contacts - have been enhanced in a variety of ways to increase personal productivity and effectiveness. Lotus Notes 8 includes new ways to sort, filter, and preview e-mail; tools for managing personal calendars and interactions with others have been improved; and persistent access to collaborative tools helps keep critical information and frequently used applications at the user's fingertips.

1

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Three innovative new capabilities in Lotus Notes 8 dramatically increase personal and organizational productivity:

Composite applications - Composite applications combine components from multiple applications into a single, role-based work environment. With support for composite applications, Lotus Notes 8 offers greater flexibility to organizations seeking to rapidly respond to competitive markets. Combining multiple technologies into a single application provides significant business value by enabling companies to protect and extend their existing assets with increasing degrees of flexibility and to respond quickly and cost-effectively to their emerging business requirements, with applications that are significantly easier to create than those of alternative application development environments.

Composite applications can be composed of any combination of Notes applications and

Eclipse-based components. When components are interconnected in such a fashion, data that is changed in one application affects the corresponding data and views in connected applications/components.

IBM Lotus Productivity Tools - Lotus Notes 8 comes with a complete set of integrated productivity tools for creating, editing, and sharing a variety of document types. The productivity tools include IBM

Lotus Documents (word processing), IBM Lotus Spreadsheets, and IBM Lotus Presentations.

Activities - Lotus Notes 8 is built to provide activity-centric computing, which lets users organize, navigate, manage, and share information based on specific projects or team activities. Activity-centric computing organizes tasks and projects by associating multiple types of communications and resources into a cohesive grouping. Note: The activities server is not provided with this Notes Domino

8 Beta release.

Note: To take full advantage of the Notes 8 Mail and Calendar experience, you need to upgrade to the

Notes 8 Mail template. To take full advantage of composite applications and Activities, see the Installation notes section of these release notes to learn what server products you need to install.

Besides increasing end-user productivity, these new software innovations in Lotus Notes 8 let developers combine their existing Lotus Notes applications with line-of-business application components to solve specific business problems.

More specific information about the new capabilities in Lotus Notes 8 is provided below.

User interface

The Lotus Notes 8 user interface has been re-designed to greatly enhance usability. Some of the highlights of the new user interface include: z

Consolidated user preferences z z z z

The new Open button provides a drop-down menu with quick access to all your bookmarks and frequently used applications. You can access the Open button from within any Notes 8 screen.

The sidebar provides easy access to Sametime Contacts (optional), Feeds, Day At-A-Glance, and Activities (limited availability in this beta release).

Intelligent addressing for improved typeahead, based on your collaboration history.

Lotus Notes 8 supports common keyboard and mouse shortcuts and gestures, including the selection of multiple messages using the Control key and the left-mouse button. z

The new user interface gives users greater flexibility to view open messages and other documents in Lotus Notes 8:

Flat tabs. You can view each item as a tab.

Group tabs. You can view each application as a tab.

New window. You can open messages and documents in separate windows.

2

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes z z z

New Search Center UI for queries and results (Domain Search, Find People and Find Application,

Web / Intranet Searches)

Multiple level "undo" command

On-the-fly spell checking

Mail z z z z z z

Lotus Notes 8 Mail offers visual clues for linking messages with associated threads. Threaded e-mails can be gathered together and presented at the view level. Users can easily expand mail threads and see all messages related to a specific topic. A new brief preview message feature allows users to quickly see information contained in individual mail messages.

Users now have the option of previewing messages vertically or horizontally.

By double-clicking on an item, users can launch the item in a separate window. A user can then interact with open messages and other Notes elements more easily.

Users have greater control to toggle Lotus Notes mail fields on or off. For example, users can select or deselect the "bcc:" field in the Lotus Notes memo form.

Message recall capability

Improved rendering of HTML messages

Calendar z

Unprocessed invitations appear as "ghosted" or highlighted entries in the monthly calendar view.

Users can simply double-click on the highlighted date to accept, decline, or counter the invitation. z

When scheduling conflicts arise, the meeting chairperson can deselect non-critical attendees to find dates and times that accommodate the remaining attendees.

Contacts z z

Business card-like views for displaying individual contact information.

Contact records can include a photograph of the person. z z z z

Instant messaging chats can be initiated from the Contact view.

Contact delegation to allow others access to your list of personal contacts.

Drop-down addressing and the "Recent Contacts" view in Contacts presents a list of people you have recently collaborated with to speed the addressing of outbound messages.

"Collaboration History" provides an easy way to see documents that have been recently collaborated on with specific people.

IBM Lotus Productivity Tools z

Support the OASIS Open Document Format (ODF), an international standard for sharing and editing editable documents. These open standards-based applications give users and organizations a choice of file formats and frees them from proprietary vendor formats. z z

Can also open, edit, and save documents in certain Microsoft Office formats.

SmartSuite formats can be imported to the Lotus Productivity Tools through an included filter.

3

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Composite applications z

End users can access composite applications from within the Lotus Notes interface. z z

Organizations can deploy composite applications made up of only Notes applications or they can create composite applications using a variety of component types including Eclipse/Java applications.

Composite applications in Lotus Notes 8 can be used online or offline.

Activities (The activities server is not provided with this Notes Domino 8 Beta release.) z

E-mail, instant messaging chats, documents, web pages, and images are grouped together under the activity or project to which they are related. z

Graphical, hierarchal format makes it easier to refer to past work, visualize project status, and discover opportunities for further progress. z z

Users can quickly create new activities or access existing activities via the Activities viewer.

Team membe rs can edit documents, make comments and add information as needed. z

Activities can be searched and filtered.

Lotus Notes

Reporting Notes 8 Beta issues and problems

If you experience any problems installing or using Lotus Notes 8 Beta, we want to hear from you in the form of a software problem report. Information about what to include in the problem report and the process by which you can submit a problem report to IBM Lotus are provided below.

Information to include in the problem report

The problem report should provide as much information as possible to recreate the problem. This includes the following:

1. As much build and platform related information as is relevant

2. Detailed steps to reproduce the problem

3. Actual test case contents, or links to the test cases

4. Screen shots if applicable showing relevant messages

5. All of the supporting logs

6. All environment variables in printed list form (for example, type "set" into a DOS command window on the test machine and provide the resulting printed list of ENV variables)

What logs and files do I need to attach ?

The answer is all of them. The best way to do this is to use IBM Support Assistant (ISA).

Preferred Option - Running the Integrate d IBM Support Assistant (ISA) from within Notes 8 Beta to create problem reports

Use the integrated collector to gather the information. From Notes 8 Beta, start the IBM Support Assistant

(click Help > Support > IBM Support Assistant to start the Support Assistant). Once you have started the

Support Assistant, click Service along the top menu, then click Collect Data. Make sure that all collectors are marked to generate data. Once collected, attach the results to the problem report. By using this collector, all logs are terminated properly allowing for easier handling by the recipient.

Also be sure to attach a list of all environment variables in printed list form (for example, type "set" in a

DOS command window on the test machine and also send the resulting printed list of ENV variables).

The integrated IBM Support Assistant is described in Notes 8 Beta online Help by clicking Help > Help

Contents > IBM Support Assistant User's Guide.

Secondary Option - Running a Standalone IBM Support Assistant (ISA) to create problem reports

If the integrated collector is not available, then second option is to use the standalone collector.

From the < installdir>\rcp directory, run the startcollector.bat (Windows), or startcollector.sh (Linux) to gather the information.

Once collected, attach the results to the problem report along with a list of all environment variables in printed list form (for example, type "set" into a DOS command window on the test machine and also send the resulting printed list of ENV variables).

Third Option - Manual Collection

Collect the following files: (see "Where is the Workspace?" section below for locating the <workspace>) z z z

< workspace>\.config directory contents

< workspace>\.config\org.eclipse.update contents including subdirectories

< workspace>\logs directory contents

On Windows z z z

%TEMP%\rcpInstallerTemp.properties

%TEMP%\rcp_install.log

On Linux z

< installdir>\rcp_install.log

Environment variables list

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Note: On Notes 8 Beta, the files referencing <installdir>\rcp are located in <installdir>\framework\rcp. z

< installdir>\rcp\plugin_customization.ini z z

< installdir>\rcp\rcplauncher.properties

< installdir>\rcp\deploy directory contents

Then zip them up and attach to the problem report. Please note in the problem report that these were manually collected.

Security z

AES cipher support for SSL. Domino 8 introduces the ability to configure the Domino server to use the TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA and TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA ciphers for

SSL, as defined in RFC 3268. z

Use of xACLS to protect Internet password fields in the Domino directory

Web Server z

User-defined attributes can now be added to the

<HTML>

tag generated by the web engine. If the field $$HTMLFrontMatter is present on a form, its contents will be placed in the generated HTML, ahead of the <html> tag, and the web server will not generate anything there automatically. The expected use of this feature is to supply a custom <!DOCTYPE> declaration for the generated HTML.

Note that as with other of these special fields, it is the application designer's responsibility to insure that the field is not visible on the form and that it does not allow POSTing of that field.

The content of the field is not used by the web server in any other way - it has no other effect on the generated HTML other than as described above. For example, suppling a doctype of HTML 4.01

STRICT will not cause the web engine to generate strict HTML. The content of the field is not validated in any way. z

Limitation of thecurrent implementation: the special field is not recognized in custom response forms..

Users can now specify a custom

<!DOCTYPE>

declaration on a per form basis. If the field

$$HTMLTagAttributes is present on a form, its contents is placed in the attribute list of the <HTML> tag. Note that as with other of these special fields, it is the application designer's responsibility to insure that the field is not visible on the form and that it does not allow POSTing of that field.

The content of the field is not used by the web server in any other way - it has no other effect on the generated HTML other than as described above. The content of the field is not validated in any way.

Limitation of current implementation: the special field is not recognized in custom response forms.

Backward compatibility

Lotus Notes, Domino Server

Domino 8 Billing feature

The Billing feature is included in IBM Lotus Domino 8 for legacy support. No bug fixes or feature enhancements are planned for the Billing feature, and you are encouraged to migrate to Activity Logging for the equivalent functionality.

Domino Server

Using a subform multiple times on the same form on the web

The Domino Designer and Notes Client do not allow a subform to be used on a form more than once.

The web server was allowing this, which could lead to incorrect forms and possible crashes if the subform were included recursively. With 7.0.3, this problem has been corrected, and an error page will be generated if a form refers to a subform more than one time (whether recursively or iteratively).

It is likely that the only way an application can get into this situation is to use a computed subform, as the

Domino Designer will not allow a subform to be placed on the form if it is already on the form.

Product compatibility

Domino 8 defaults to ODS 43

IBM Lotus Domino 8 supports file format, on-disk structure (ODS) 43.

Upgrading from ODS 43 to ODS 48

To upgrade from an ODS 43 to an ODS 48 format database in Domino 8, set the NOTES.INI file parameter

Create_R8_Databases=1

in the NOTES.INI file on the Domino server or the Notes client.

When you set

Create_R8_Databases=1

, new databases are created using ODS 48. Use copy style compacting to upgrade existing ODS databases to ODS 48. Use this command to run copy-style compacting: compact -c <database name>

Note In-place compacting has been changed. When a pre-ODS 48 database is detected, Domino does not automatically convert to copy-style compact to upgrade your databases.

ODS 48 provides potential improvement for I/O and folder optimization. The following Domino 8 features require ODS 48: z

Enhanced Database User Activity z z z z

NSF support to optimize renames and deletes using the Administration Process

Enhanced Modified Notes Log for threaded views in IBM Lotus Notes 8

Using Notes/Domino 8 with BlackBerry servers

Research In Motion (RIM) does not officially support Notes and Domino 8, as it is not officially released yet. Note that, in general, synching your Notes 8 Beta 2 client with your Blackberry device is not supported. The Blackberry Server may not function properly when used against a Notes 8 template, for example, mail8.ntf or pubnames.ntf. If, however, you want to attempt, in an unsupported fashion, to use a

Blackberry against Notes and Domino 8, make sure you are at least on BlackBerry Server version 4.1

Service Pack 3.

TM

The BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) extends Domino messaging and collaboration applications to mobile professionals using BlackBerry ® handheld devices.

BlackBerry servers may crash unexpectedly when the server Name and Address Book (NAB) is upgraded to the new Notes/Domino 8 design or when users switch to the mail8 template. On your server console, you may see an error similar to the following:

Process E:\domino\nBES.EXE (4172/0x104C) has terminated abnormally

In addition, NSD may or may not activate. In either case, the BES task is not functioning, and BlackBerry users will be unable to receive mail.

Workaround

Administrators should upgrade to the latest BES release that has Domino 8 support.

BlackBerry service packs are available on the web at: http://www.blackberry.com/support/downloads/index.shtml

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Smartcard Package Caveats : z

The technique introduced in 7.0 to "Lock ID With Key on Smartcard" will be used with all tokens that support C_Sign for CKM_RSA_PKCS with input lengths up to k-11 bytes, in accordance with the PKCS#11 specification. New techniques for locking the ID file using a private RSA key on the smartcard were added in later releases for some tokens that do not support the full range of input lengths, and those tokens are marked with (version+) in the relevant columns of the above table.

ID files locked with these new techniques can not be used by older versions of Notes/Domino; attempts to do so will result in an "Unsupported ID file version" error. z z

Aladdin eToken RTE 3.65 has been tested with this beta release using eToken PRO USB 64k tokens and eToken NG-FLASH USB tokens.

The Belgian eID was tested with run-time version 2.5.9, and we highly recommend that customers upgrade to the most recent version of the Belgian eID Run-time software. Users will receive redundant PIN prompts from the PKCS#11 library as well as Notes due to the token failing to set the CKF_PROTECTED_AUTHENTICATION_PATH token flag, but setting

"allow_sso = false" in the Belgian eID configuration file beidbase.conf will eliminate the duplicate prompts. However, setting that variable and rebooting with the token in the reader may result in the PKCS#11 library hanging when first attempting to use the smartcard. This problem does not appear to occur when the ID file is locked with a key on the smartcard. z z

The DataKey CIP 4.07 software installs multiple PKCS#11 libraries. dkck201.dll uses PKCS#11 v2.01 and has been tested successfully with Notes; dkck232.dll uses PKCS#11 v2.00 and does not work with Notes.

The Estonian eID was tested with the PKCS#11 library from id-card-installer-0.7.exe (2/14/2006)

Using this version of the library, the pre-loaded certificates could be imported into the ID file and used for S/MIME signing and decryption, but smartcard login was nonfunctional. It is possible that a newer version of the smartcard drivers will fix the token limitation that prevented the "Lock ID

With Key on Smartcard" action from succeeding. z z z

The GemSafe Libraries 4.2 SP3 returns CKR_DEVICE_ERROR instead of

CKR_TOKEN_NOT_PRESENT from C_GetTokenInfo when no token is in the reader. If Notes fails to automatically activate a workaround for this token bug, it may be necessary to manually set PKCS11_TOKEN_BUGS=128 in the notes.ini file. Due to the occasional failure of this token to report slot events, it may also be necessary to hit F5 and log out of Notes in order to force a

PIN prompt when using keys on a smartcard when the ID file is not secured with that same smartcard.

The Rainbow CryptoSwift eCommerce Server Accelerator fails to report that RSA cryptographic operations are performed in hardware. If you are having difficulty performing cryptographic operations (including importing X.509 certificates or exporting RSA keys) with this device, setting

PKCS11_NO_HWCHECK=1 or PKCS11_TOKEN_BUGS=2 in the NOTES.INI file will activate a workaround in Notes/Domino for this problem.

The Secude token cannot perform cryptographic operations with a number of smart card readers due to the high power demands of that token. Please confirm that your token readers are supported by Secude before deploying this package. If you are having difficulty signing S/MIME messages with a key on these smartcards and are using a supported token reader, setting

PKCS11_TOKEN_BUGS=1 in the NOTES.INI file will activate a workaround in Notes that may fix this problem. and upgrading your Secude software may fix this problem.

21

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Caveats and Warnings : z z z z z z z z z z

An entry of "n/a" in the "Use pre-loaded keys and X.509 certificates" column does not necessarily indicate any incompatibility with the smartcard package, but simply means that we did not have a sample pre-loaded token to test against.

Current versions of the Entrust CA create non-compliant PKCS#11 attributes for certificates and keys. Support for these keys and certs is limited; see "Problems using Entrust certificates on smartcards" in these release notes for more details.

Read-only tokens, such as many national identity "eID" cards and Common Access Cards, can only be used to lock the ID file through the "Lock ID with Key on Smartcard" action, which was introduced in ND7. The "Enable Smartcard Login" action that was introduced in ND6 requires write access to the token.

The "Lock ID with Key on Smartcard" action will search all slots for the key needed to unlock the

Notes ID file. Therefore, if a token is lost or locked out, a new token can be used with the old ID file, as long as the new token contains the exact same certificates and keys with the same key identifier (CKA_ID) attributes. However, if an ID file is smartcard-enabled using the "Enable

Smartcard Login" option, then ID File Recovery must be used if the token is lost or locked out in order to revert the ID to a conventional password.

The only way to revert a smartcard-protected ID file to a conventional password is through ID File

Recovery. ID File Recovery should be configured for an ID file before the ID file is smartcard-enabled. Recovering a smartcard-protected ID file will revert the ID file to use a password and will restore any keys that were pushed onto the smartcard from the ID file, as long as the recovery information was not changed after the key was pushed down to the smartcard.

Password expiration should be disabled in a user's person record before they smartcard-enable their ID file.

Password checking will result in only a single smartcard being usable with a given ID file, even across multiple computers or platforms. In this scenario, one copy of the ID file should be smartcard-enabled, and then that version of the ID file should be copied to all of the other respective computers. That single smartcard will now be required for all of the copies of the ID file.

Server setup will not function with a smartcard-protected server ID. In order to use a smartcard-protected ID with a server, finish server setup with a password-protected version of the

ID file, then add the path to the PKCS #11 library in the server's NOTES.INI

(PKCS11_Library=<path to library>), and finally smartcard-enable the server's ID file on a client or using the SECManipulateSC C-API function.

Single Logon, which synchronizes the Notes and Windows passwords, cannot be used with a smartcard-protected ID file. You must restart Notes after disabling Single Logon before smartcard-enabling an ID file.

Notes uses version 2.01 of the PKCS #11 API to communicate with smartcards and other

PKCS#11 devices. PKCS #11 libraries that only implement version 2.0 will not result in an

"F5"-style logout when the card is removed from the reader. Updated libraries may be available from the smartcard vendors.

If you are running with DB2 as the Domino datastore then you must add additional DB2 install requirements. DB2 9.1 is supported in the current release. NSFDB2 support is not available using Domino for System i. For additional install requirements, please see "Setting up and using Domino and DB2" in the Domino Administrator Help.

2

Only Microsoft TCP/IP is supported.

3

Domino clusters and partitioned server configurations do not support the IPX/SPX protocol. At this time, IBM does

4 not plan to provide IPX/SPX network support for future releases of these features.

The 64-bit kernel must be installed and in use on these systems, even though the OS is 32-bit. The use of the 32-bit kernel is no longer supported on these platforms. Please see the OS vendor documentation for questions on enabling/using the 64-bit kernel. (On Solaris, the 64-bit kernel is used by default on supported hardware; this is not the case for AIX).

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

C and C++ Application Requirements

ATTENTION:

Any applications that use the Domino C or C++ API on i5/OS need to be reviewed to make sure they are properly enabled for use with Domino on i5/OS.

There are two important considerations:

1.

Bind to QNOTES/LIBNOTES

Some applications incorrectly specify a library of *LIBL when binding to the LIBNOTES service program. This can result in incorrect operation in a multi-versioned Domino environment.

Applications must specify library QNOTES when binding to the LIBNOTES service program in order to function correctly in a multi-versioned environment.

2.

Enable for Teraspace

When 64-bit support for Domino becomes available, Domino for i5/OS will also change to use the i5/OS 64-bit pointer and teraspace support. To ensure proper operation, applications using the

Domino C or C++ API must be teraspace-enabled. This can be accomplished by recompiling the application with the teraspace compiler option specified. This is expected to provide significant improvement in Domino i5/OS performance when 64-bit support is introduced.

For more details, see the following document

Autonomy KeyView filter formats supported

The Domino 8 server and Notes 8 client have been upgraded with version 9.2.4 of Autonomy KeyView filters and viewers, which support bidirectional reading order. Autonomy, Inc. is a leading provider of viewing, search and retrieval applications for the enterprise and the Internet. Autonomy's KeyView technology enables Domino to access, index, and view document attachments of many file types and forms such as image and word-processing formats.

The Autonomy KeyView filtering and viewing package enables developers to extract text from a wide variety of word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation formats through a set of APIs. The APIs additionally support summary information extraction and automatic detection of document types. The

Autonomy Filter SDK API supports both file-based and stream-based input and output operations. The

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes z

The filtering of PDF files by using either the file’s internal unstructured paragraph flow, or by applying a structure to the paragraphs to reproduce the logical reading order of the visual page. Logical reading order enables the filtered output of PDF files containing languages that read from right-to-left, in the correct reading direction. A default unstructured text stream for PDF files is available to facilitate filtering of PDF paragraphs extracted in the order in which they are stored in the file, not the order in which they appear on the visual page. This form of output does not represent a logical reading order, but accurately reflects the internal structure of the PDF file. A configurable option produces a structured text stream that flows in a specified direction. This means PDF paragraphs are extracted in the order (logical reading order) and direction (left-to-right or right-to-left) in which they appear on the page.

The following file formats are supported by Notes/Domino 8 for filtering as indicated in the table below:

Installing the Notes server client installer

An administrator can install the Lotus Notes server client installer on an IBM WebSphere Portal server.

This is required for Notes 8 Beta users who will be using composite applications that contain portlet elements. It is available as a Web download at the Beta Downloads site.

The Notes server client installer is required to install portlets onto the server and for Notes 8 Beta client communication with the WebSphere Portal server. For example, if you want to users to be able to edit a portal-based composite application using the Composite Application Editor, you must first run the Notes server client installer. The Notes server client installer program installs the .war files that are required by the Composite Applications Editor when it works with the WebSphere Portal server.

Note: If your users create composite applications that include portlets, you must install the WebSphere

Portal server. To use some of the functions enabled by WebSphere Portal in Lotus Notes 8 Beta, you must also install the Notes server client installer on the WebSphere Portal server.

Note: The administrator must also create a Home Portal Account for Notes 8 Beta users in order for them to create, edit, and view composite applications that contain portlets. Users can obtain help on modifying a Home Portal Account using the preferences panel in their Notes online Help system.

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Domino Server

Running the Domino-Portal Integration Wizard

Use the Domino-Portal Integration (DPI) Wizard to configure a WebSphere Portal server to work with your

Domino-based infrastructure. You can use the DPI Wizard with the Domino 7.0 server, or more recent servers. The DPI Wizard eliminates many of the manual Domino and WebSphere Portal configuration steps required to run the Domino and Extended Products Portlets, Common Mail and Common Calendar.

Note For this Domino 8 beta release, the DPI Wizard is supported on Microsoft Windows platforms.

Prerequisites

The DPI Wizard requires that both the Domino server and WebSphere Portal server be installed and set up.

z z

WebSphere Portal server 6.0 with security enabled, configured with Domino LDAP, not clustered, and with no support for IBM Tivoli Access Manager or Computer Associates eTrust(R)

SiteMinder(R).

Domino LDAP server, configured as the LDAP server for WebSphere Portal 6.0, running Domino release 7.0 or more recent, with the LDAP and HTTP/HTTPS services enabled. The wizard communicates over HTTP, but specifying an HTTPS port as well allows for a secure transmission of the DTPA token that the wizard copies. z z

If security is enabled manually on the WebSphere Portal server 6.0, instead of enabling security with the Advanced Configuration Wizard on the WebSphere Portal server, you will need to restart the WebSphere Portal Administration server before you run the DPI Wizard. To prevent having to manually restart the WebSphere Portal Administration server, be sure to enable security in the

Advanced Configuration Wizard prior to running the DPI Wizard.

All servers must be behind the same Internet security firewall, in the same Internet domain, and if they are Domino servers, in the same Domino domain. z

To run the DPI Wizard, you must be listed as an Administrator in the Server document in the

Domino Directory (NAMES.NSF) on the Lotus Domino LDAP server.

Caution If you already have a Web SSO configuration on your Domino servers, be sure to read the

"Consideration for existing SSO environments" section prior to running the wizard.

Considerations for existing Web SSO environments

The wizard creates a fresh Web SSO environment for all of the IBM Lotus Domino servers in your

Domino domain that you choose to configure.

If your installation of Lotus Domino is new, or if your existing Lotus Domino and Lotus Sametime servers have no Web SSO documents in their Domino Directory applications (NAMES.NSF files), no further action is needed and you are ready to run the wizard.

If you do have one or more existing Web SSO documents, refer to the following checklist to evaluate whether your site is ready to run the wizard. There is a technote available on the IBM Support Web site providing instructions for dealing with the existing documents. The technote is:

Title: Domino-Portal Integration Wizard unable to create a working Web Single Sign-On environment

Doc #:1256149

URL: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21256149 z

If you have an existing Web SSO document in your Domino Directory (NAMES.NSF), check to see whether it has the name LtpaToken. If all Web SSO documents in your domain have other names, no further action is needed and you are ready to run the wizard. The wizard creates a document with this exact name and will not affect your existing documents with other names.

60

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes z z z z z

If the document is called LtpaToken, check to see whether there are any copies of it on other Lotus

Domino servers in your Lotus Domino domain that have different content (for example, with different servers listed in the document). The Web SSO document should always be created by replication so that its content is identical on all Lotus Domino servers. If you have documents with differing content, you need to correct the configuration before you can run the wizard. For instructions, see the technote.

If the document is called LtpaToken and has the same content on all servers, check to see whether it was created by the Lotus Sametime server. A document created by the Sametime server before Web

SSO is configured in Lotus Domino cannot be used with the wizard. You need to correct this configuration. For instructions, see the technote.

If the document is called LtpaToken, has the same content on all servers, and was not created by

Lotus Sametime, check to see whether it was created by a Lotus Domino administrator other than the one who will run the wizard. You need to correct this configuration; for instructions, see the technote.

If the document meets all the conditions above, but you do not plan to configure all of the Lotus

Domino servers currently listed in it, you need to correct this configuration to list only the servers you plan to use with the wizard. For instructions, see the technote.

Otherwise, your environment is probably ready to run the wizard, but see the technote if you have concerns.

Running the Domino-Portal Integration Wizard

Complete these steps to run the Domino-Portal Integration Wizard.

1.

Move the following files from the Domino Directory to the WebSphere Portal server, directory path

<PortalServerHome>/config/wizard

: z z

DPIWizard.jar dpiwiz.bat

for Microsoft Windows platforms

2.

From the WebSphere Portal server, enter this command: z

For Microsoft Windows platforms, enter

You can review the log file dpitasks.log

generated during the configuration.

Dpitasks.log

contains the history of the wizard run. If the DPI Wizard fails, use the View Log button to review the content of the log file. Log files are stored on the Portal server at

<PortalServerHome>/log

.

When the wizard completes, the log files are zipped into a file with this naming convention:

DPIDebug_yyyymmdd_hhmm.zip

, which can be found at

<PortalServerHome>/config/wizard

.

You can review this file if necessary.

Lotus Notes

Installing Lotus Notes 8 Beta using silent installation

You can install IBM Lotus Notes using silent installation. If you are installing for multi-user, you must be logged in as an administrative or root user.

Notes silent install uses a tuner program to create a transform based on options that you specify when you run the tuner. When you run the silent install, the options are applied. You can also specify features from the Notes install manifest (install.xml file) as command line arguments. All features in the install manifest that have their "required" attribute set to "true" are automatically installed.

61

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Perform the following steps to run a silent installation.

Notes silent installation on Windows

You can specify command line options during silent Notes install on Windows.

1. Open a command window.

2. Change to the directory in which the IBM Lotus Notes install kit's setup.exe is resident.

3. Type the silent installation command.

Example commands are provided below.

Note that these examples do not illustrate use of a transform file.

• Use this format to run the install in silent mode, using default values, without a progress bar: setup.exe /s /v"/qn"

Note: For example, this command installs Notes to the single user default C:\Program

Files\IBM\Lotus\Notes directory and Notes data folders and files to the C:\Program

Files\IBM\Lotus\Notes\data directory.

When installation is complete, the shortcut icon(s) appears on the desktop.

• Use this format to display a message when the installation is complete or it has failed. Use the + parameter as follows: setup.exe /s /v"/qn+"

• Use this format to display a progress bar during the installation, in addition to displaying the message indicating that the installation is complete or it has failed: setup.exe /s /v"/qb+"

• Use this format to specify named install manifest features to install using the command line. Obtain the "installfeature" ID syntax from the Notes install manifest (install.xml). To install any of these features, include the feature ID value in the “SELECTINSTALLFEATURES” property on the command line a shown below. Specify comma-separated features names in quotes as follows. Note the placement of the quote, equals sign, and space characters. setup /s /v"SELECTINSTALLFEATURES=Activities,Sametime,Editors,CAE /qn"

Note: The Sametime feature will be installed; it is not optional. All features in the supplied install manifest whose "required' attribute is set to "true" will be installed.

To pass a parameter that contains intervening spaces, such as a directory path, quote the parameter using a backslash quote sequence as follows: setup /s /V"SELECTINSTALLFEATURES=Activities,Editors PROGDIR=\"C:\Program

Files\Lotus\Notes\" DATADIR=\"C:\Program Files\Lotus\Notes\Data\" /qn"

Notes silent installation on Linux

You can specify these command line options when running a Lotus Notes silent install on Linux.

1. Open a command window or shell.

2. Change to the directory in which the Lotus Notes install kit's setup.bin is resident.

3. Type the silent installation command.

Example syntax and an example command are provided below.

- silent

This specifies that the command will run in silent mode.

-V licenseAccepted="true|false"

This sets the variable to accept the license agreement panel.

62

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

-P installLocation="< location>"

This sets the install location for Notes client. The value must not contain an ending slash symbol

(\).

-V selectInstallFeatures="< list of comma separated install feature ids>"

This sets the list of optional install features that can be installed.

This argument overrides all install feature "default" attributes in the install manifest. If you use this argument, only the install features listed in the argument and the "required" install features are installed/selected.

-V removeInstallFeatures="< list of comma separated install feature ids>"

This sets the list of optional install features that can be removed on upgrade.

This argument is only supported for Domino Administrator and Domino Designer install features when you are updating Notes. If Notes is already installed, and the Administrator client and/or

Designer client are also already installed, and you are upgrading Notes with the current installer, you can use this argument to remove/deselect the Administrator client and/or Designer client from the upgrade.

In this example, the Lotus Notes installer is run silently such that all features in the install manifest whose required attribute is set to true are installed and the license agreement is accepted without prompting. You must minimally use these command line parameters to run Notes silent install on Linux. setup.exe -silent -V licenseAccepted="true"

XML editor. Alternatively you can overwrite presetfeeds.opml content with the output .opml file from another reader.

Removing preset feeds

You can remove or comment out any supplied preset feeds from the presetfeeds.opm file.

If you do not want any preset feeds, you can remove or rename the presetfeeds.opml file.

Subscribing to preset feeds after Notes install

The "Subscribe to preset feeds icon" is available in Notes from the Feeds user interface. After subscribing, or after toggling the icon off using the File > Preferences user interface sequence, you can redisplay the "Subscribe to preset feeds" icon using the following procedure.

1. Click File -> Preferences.

2. Click Feeds.

3. Enable Show "Subscribe to preset feeds" button on the toolbar and click OK.

4. Click the Feeds icon in the Notes side shelf to open the Feeds user interface. The "Subscribe to preset feeds" icon contains the round feeds graphic.

5. Click the "Subscribe to preset feeds" icon to subscribe to the preset feeds obtained from the Notes installer's deploy\extras\presetfeeds.opml file.

The "Subscribe to preset feeds" icon is removed upon completion of the "Subscribe to preset feeds" process.

If a feed cannot be read, a log file entry is created during the "Subscribe to preset feeds" process.

Changing feed subscription after subscribing to preset feeds :

You can subscribe to new, or unsubscribe from existing, feeds using the Feeds user interface as described in Lotus Notes Help.

Uninstall Notes 8 Beta before reinstalling

If you have installed an earlier, or the same, version of Lotus Notes 8 Beta, you must uninstall that Beta version before installing this Beta version. Attempting to install over an existing Beta version can leave the client in an unsupported state. See the uninstall release notes for details.

Lotus Notes

Keeping a pre-Notes 8 version on Windows

On Windows, you can make a copy of your IBM Lotus Notes 6.5.x or 7.x installation and then install Lotus

Notes 8.

These instructions apply to single user installations only.

You must have local administrator privileges to complete this procedure.

1. Shut down the Notes client and all Notes-related tools, utilities and add-ins running on your computer.

2. Make a backup copy of your notes.id and notes.ini file.

3. Rename the Notes 6.5.x or 7.x install directory. For example, rename the directory notes7.

4. Rename the entire Notes registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Lotus\Notes. For example, rename it HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Lotus\Notes7.

5. Rename the entire Installer registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Lotus\Notes\Installer. For example, rename it HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Lotus\Notes\Installer7.

6. Create a new desktop shortcut to run the Notes 6.5.x or 7.x version. Create a copy of your existing

Notes desktop shortcut icon, then right click on it, click Properties and change the following settings: a.Change the Shortcut tab - Target value to \notes7x\notes.exe =\notes\notes.ini. b.Change the Start in value to \notes7x. c. Change the Title (General tab) to Notes 7. d.Click OK to close the properties dialog.

7. Install Lotus Notes 8.

8. When installation is complete, rename the 6.5.x or 7.x install directory back to its original name.

Lotus Notes

Creating a verbose log file during Notes 8 install

If reporting Notes 8 Beta issues against the Windows version Notes 8 installation program, you should include a verbose log file with your problem report. To create a verbose log file, do either of the following: z z

Run the setup executable from the command line in the verbose mode and specify a log file name.

For example, start the installer using the following command line: setup /v"/lv* c:\temp\install.log"

Set a registry value to always generate an MSI log file for each Notes 8 install and uninstall. To do so, create a registry entry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer with String Value Logging=voicewarmup. This will create an MSI log file in your < temp> directory with the file extension ".log" for all MSI installations.

Mail Letterheads and upgrading from previous releases of Notes

In Lotus Notes 8 Beta, the Mail Memo (and Reply) forms have a new 'look and feel'. There are also a number of new and redesigned letterheads. In the next release, there will be more redesigned letterheads and some new ones as well.

There are a few caveats pertaining to letterheads:

1. Your old letterhead graphic is still part of the template; it will still display in the redesigned forms. The old letterhead design is wider than the new designs, however, and the picture may appear truncated in the Memo header. The only workaround at this time is to choose a different letterhead via Preferences.

2. If you save Preferences for any reason and had previously chosen a letterhead that is not included on the redesigned list above, the letterhead image that displays in the Memo form will change to the

"Envelope" image. You will not be able to use your previously-chosen letterhead until a future release, and then only if it is on the list of those to be redesigned.

3. If you choose to use one of the new letterheads, if the recipient of your e-mail is still using a mail template from a previous release, the letterhead area will appear blank.

Notes/Domino 8 upgrade to JDK (Java Development Kit) 1.5

IMPORTANT: The JavaCompilerTarget=1.5 INI setting is required to take advantage of new language features in JDK 1.5, but may reduce the backwards compatibility of agents .

Syntax: JavaCompilerTarget=1.5

Example: JavaCompilerTarget=1.5

Description:

This release note refers to the Notes/Domino 8 upgrade to JDK (Java Development Kit) 1.5. This upgrade enhances the Java language with new features, described below. (Note: In the following text, we refer to JDK 1.5, which is also known as JDK 1.5.0 and JDK 5.0.)

By default, Notes/Domino 8 utilizes JDK 1.5 to compile and run agents, but it limits language features to maintain backwards compatibility through JDK 1.2.

Developers who wish to use JDK 1.5-specific features within their agents must override the default behavior. To override the default behavior, developers must specify the JavaCompilerTarget=1.5 INI setting. It is important to note that enabling 1.5-specific language features via this setting prevents compiled agents from running on Notes/Domino installations prior to 8.0 (and, more generally, JVMs prior to 1.5), regardless of whether the new language features are actually used in the agent's code.

Enabling the JDK 1.5 language features via this INI setting therefore introduces the possibility of having an agent recompiled, replicated to a non-JDK-1.5 server, and then fail to run. Additionally, problems can arise editing and saving agents compiled with JavaCompilerTarget=1.5 in

Notes/Domino installations without the INI.

75

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

It is suggested that organizations use a consistent setting across machines. Developers who will not be using JDK 1.5-specific language features are encouraged to keep the default Notes/Domino behavior as it will maximize backward compatibility.

INI Setting

No INI Setting

(default)

JavaCompiler

Target=1.5 z z z z z z z z

Effects on Notes /Domino Agents

Notes/Domino will compile agents using the following compiler flags: javac

-source 1.3 -target 1.2

Agents will run on JREs from 1.2.x onward

The user loses the ability to compile with JDK 5.0 functionality (cannot create or edit any Java agent that uses JDK 5.0 features)

The user keeps backward compatibility (any agent that is created or edited during the session can still be still run on Domino 6.0 or later)

Notes/Domino will compile agents using javac -source 1.5 -target 1.5

Compiled agents can only be run with JDK 5.0 (Notes/Domino 8.0 and later).

The user gains JDK 5.0 functionality with any agent created or edited during that session (such agents will run with new JDK 5.0 features)

The user loses backward compatibility with any agent created or edited during that session (such agents will not run on a server with any earlier Domino version, even if they don't use any 5.0 features)

JDK 1.5 Language Features that Require "JavaCompilerTarget=1.5":

The following JDK 1.5 agents will require the JavaCompilerTarget=1.5 INI setting to compile and run:

New Java 5 Language Features

Generics z

Allows a type or method to operate on objects of various types while providing compile-time type safety.

Enhanced for Loops z

Facilitates iterating over collections and arrays.

Autoboxing/Unboxing z

Facilitates conversion between primitive types (such as int) and wrapper types (such as Integer).

Typesafe Enums z

Allows creation of enumerated types with arbitrary methods and fields.

Varargs z

Simplifies invoking methods that accept variable-length argument lists.

Static Import z

Lets you avoid qualifying static members with class names.

Annotations (Metadata) z

Allows tools to generate boilerplate code from annotations in the source code.

Personal Address Book needs new design upgrade

If you are upgrading to Notes/Domino 8 from a previous version, you must replace the design of your

Personal Address Book with the Domino 8 pernames.ntf

template. This allows a Notes/Domino 8 user to take full advantage of new features in this area, notably "Edit Locations".

Domino Server

Rebuild system views in the Domino Directory after upgrading

There are several views in the Domino Directory (NAMES.NSF) which use the Unicode standard collation, and which must be rebuilt immediately after upgrading to Domino 8. The IBM Lotus Domino server knows the collation versions, and automatically rebuilds the view indexes when the server needs to use them.

When the Domino server starts, it needs to access two important views, $Users and $ServerAccess. The server stops and waits for these views to rebuild. If the Domino Directory is a large file, rebuilding the two views requires a substantial amount of time. After upgrading to Domino 8, during the first server restart the server may stop while waiting for the views to rebuild. During this time, the server console will display initial information regarding the Domino server.

This process has been tested using a Domino Directory containing 17,000 users. Rebuilding (reindexing) the views required approximately 40 minutes during the initial server restart after upgrade. This test was performed on the platforms listed below. Note that the time requirements varied slightly by platform. z z z z

Domino Web Access, Domino for System i

Sametime customization saved to STLINKS .SAV on upgrade

The Domino server's data directory

<data dir>/domino/html/sametime/stlinks

was added in releases 6.0.5/6.5.4, and also exists in Domino 7.x and 8.x, but did not exist in 6.5.3 and prior releases.

This directory contains files that enable Sametime integration with Domino Web Access (DWA), and files in this directory may be customized to support tunneling.

When a Domino server is upgraded, any files in the existing

<data dir>/domino/html/sametime/stlinks

directory are copied to a backup directory called

<data dir>/domino/html/sametime/stlinks/stlinks.sav

in order to save any potentially customized settings. The server upgrade process occurs:

- during install for servers that are not multi-version capable (Domino 6.0.2 and earlier)

- after install when the UPDDOMSVR command is run for a multi-version capable server (Domino

6.0.3/6.5.0 and later)

Files will only be copied to the stlinks.sav subdirectory during upgrade if the stlinks.sav

directory is empty or does not exist. That is, if an install/upgrade occurs more than once for the same server, the copy of the files to stlinks.sav

will only occur during the first install/upgrade.

If you make additional customizations to the files in stlinks

, be sure to either copy the new customizations to stlinks.sav

or remove all files from stlinks.sav

so that a subsequent install/upgrade will copy the latest files to the backup directory.

Upgrade to Domino 8 sets 1K console logging limit

Upgrading the Domino server to Domino 8 sets the console logging limit to 1K. The new default setting of

1K was introduced to improve product serviceability. Console logging is enabled with a 1K limit without user intervention or notification. This will not occur if you already have an entry in the NOTES.INI file to enable, disable or change the console logging size.

To change the default console logging limit to a value other than 1K, use one of the commands listed below: z z

Use one of these Notes.ini settings console_log_enabled=n console_log_max_kbytes=desired size

For information about the Notes.ini settings, see the topic "NOTES.INI Settings" in the Domino 8

Administrator Help documentation.

After stopping the console log, issue this server command start consolelog

Domino Server

Upgrading a DB2-enabled Domino server

If you have enabled your Domino servers to communicate with DB2, and you have DB2 enabled Notes databases, you cannot upgrade directly from Domino 7.x to Domino 8. You must first convert your DB2 enabled Notes databases to Notes NSF databases. If you do not convert your databases, you will be unable to access your data. Complete these steps:

1.

2.

3.

4.

5.

Create NSF database replicas of the DB2-enabled Notes databases. Use the Create Replica tool in the Domino Administrator. Be sure to create the replica on a Domino server configured with NSF as the default datastore.

Disable the Domino 7.x server.

Upgrade to Domino 8.

Run the server enablement tool to allow the Domino and DB2 server to communicate.

Convert the NSF database replicas back to DB2-enabled Notes databases.

After a DB2-enabled Domino server has been upgraded from 7.x to 8.0, it cannot be downgraded back to a 7.x version.

When upgrading a DB2-enabled Domino server from 7.x to 8.0, DB2 Universal Database must be upgraded to version 9.1.0.

Mixed Domino and DB2 versions are not supported, for example, Domino 7.x and DB2 9.1.0 are not supported together. Domino 8.0 and DB2 8.2.2 are not supported together.

Lotus Notes

Upgrading to the current Notes 8 Beta

When you upgrade from one Lotus Notes 8 Beta version to the next, you must uninstall the old Beta before installing the new Beta. See the uninstall and install sections of these release notes for details.

If you are upgrading from a Lotus Notes version 6.5.x or 7.x on a Windows client, see the installation section of these release notes for details on how to upgrade to Lotus Notes 8 Beta using the installation program.

Valid DAV fails with DB2-SQL or product limit exceeded

Attempting to create/populate a DB2 Access View (DAV) from an existing DB2 database can fail with the following error message, although if you open the DAV, it will validate:

DB2-SQL or Product limit exceeded

.

Databases on DB2-enabled servers and the data stored in DB2 will have their schema upgraded automatically when you upgrade to Lotus Notes 8, with a 32K bufferpool named DOMINO_TMP32, and a temporary tablespace named DOMINO_STMP32. If the server fails to recognize that a schema upgrade is needed, this error occurs when a DAV using the new schema tries to get information from a DB2 database using the old schema.

To fix this error, either use a new DB2 database created with Notes 8, or manually update the schema of an existing DB2 database by issuing the following:

CREATE BUFFERPOOL DOMINO_TMP32 size 5 pagesize 32K

CREATE TEMPORARY TABLESPACE DOMINO_STMP32 PAGESIZE 32K MANAGED BY

SYSTEM USING ('DOMINO_STMP32') EXTENTSIZE 16 PREFETCHSIZE 16

BUFFERPOOL DOMINO_TMP32 where DOMINO is the master schema.

Configuration notes

Domino Server

Configuring Domino and Portal Server federated administration

You can administer an IBM Lotus Domino 8.0 server and an IBM WebSphere Portal Server 6.0 or 6.0.0.1 from the Portal Server administration user interface (UI) on the same Portal Server. In this configuration, the Domino Web Administrator UI is embedded in the Portal administration UI. To administer both server types from one Portal administration user interface, link the Domino Web Administrator client UI to the

Portal administration UI. The Domino Web Administrator UI then displays with other portal-specific user interfaces.

To implement this configuration, you must complete these procedures:

1.

If you have not already done so, download the Portal 6 Update Installer (PUI) tool.

2.

3.

Patch your Portal Server 6.0 or 6.0.0.1 with the iFix. Apply this patch only once. If you are using Portal

Server 6.0.1, you do not need to do this.

After patching the Portal Server 6.0 or 6.0.0.1, run the access scripts to add Domino servers to the

Portal administration user interface. You must run one access script for each server.

4.

5.

Be sure to complete the procedure "Enabling the Portal server for Federated Administration."

Clear your browser's cache file.

The iFix consists of a .ZIP file which includes a .jar file and a readme.txt file. The .ZIP file is contained within the database WEBADMIN.NSF.

80

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

There are two XML Access scripts. One XML Access script adds a Domino server into the Portal administration UI; one XML Access script removes a Domino server from the Portal administration UI.

Each XML Access script is a single XML-based configuration file used as input for the Portal XML configuration interface tool.

Run the XML Access script once for each Domino Web administration server to be integrated into or removed from the Portal administration UI. For example, if two servers (ServerA and ServerB) should be integrated into the Portal Administration UI, point the browser to each of the two servers, obtain the addfederation.xml file from each server, and then run each file against the Portal Server. The Portal

Administrator UI would then be configured to include the two Domino servers.

Prerequisite z

A successful SSO configuration must exist between the Portal 6.0 or 6.0.0.1 Server and the

Domino 8 server.

Preparing the portal server

You need to perform this procedure only one time for the Portal Server 6 or 6.0.0.1.

1.

If you have not already done so, download the Portal 6 Update Installer (PUI) tool. You can download the PUI from

http://www.ibm.com/software/genservers/portal/support

2.

Specifying the home portal account using policy

To specify an IBM WebSphere Portal server as the home portal account server for Notes 8 Beta, you can set the following values using the Lotus Domino Administrator client. These settings affect fields on the

Notes 8 Home Portal Account preference page.

Complete the following fields on the Portal Server Basics tab for users who need to access portlets, for example, those using composite applications that contain portlets:

Home Portal Server -- Type the name of the portal server that host Notes user accounts.

Authentication URL -- Type the URL that Notes users need to access in order to authenticate with the portal server.

Authentication type -- Choose either J2EE-Form or HTTP for Web-based authentication.

Home Portal URL -- Specify the WebSphere Portal server URL.

See the Domino Administrator help topic "Creating a security settings document" for additional information.

Lotus Notes, Domino Designer, Domino Server

Specifying the home portal account using preferences

To use Lotus Notes 8 features that require a WebSphere Portal server, such as composite applications that contain portlets, users need a Home Portal account. The Home Portal account is a unique account that specifies the WebSphere Portal server to connect to for composite applications that require a

WebSphere Portal server. The Domino administrator can set up a Home Portal account for users, however Lotus Notes 8 users can create and edit some elements of the account using the following procedure.

After users have installed Lotus Notes 8 and prior to using composite applications that contain portlets (or other features that require a WebSphere Portal server), users need a Home Portal account.

Considerations: z

The IBM Lotus Domino administrator uses a security policy document (Portal Server Basics) to control the following fields:

Portal server name

Authentication URL

Authentication type

Home Portal account URL z z z z

See the "Specifying the Home Portal account using policy" release note for related information.

The policy settings would override the account settings on the client Preferences page, and create the account if it did not already exist. If no policy is defined, then whatever the user enters in the Preferences page would be used. The Home Portal account is used by composite applications that contain portlets, however it can be used by any client application that needs to connect to the same Portal server.

The Portal server can be checked periodically for updates.

Home Portal account information is stored in the Contacts database.

Administrators should note that there is a similar preference page available when working in the

Lotus Expeditor client, described in the Expeditor help at the following Web address: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/ledoc/v6r1/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.pvc.runtime.doc.us er/tasks/user_specifyingahomeportalpage.html

83

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes z z

If the Home Portal server specified is not available, an error message will appear when the periodic server update check occurs.

The standard portal URL is http://host:port/wps/myportal, where /wps is a standard portal context and /myportal is a standard personalized Home.

Procedure:

1. Click File > Preferences.

2. Click Home Portal Account.

3. In the Name field, note the preset Home Portal Account value.

4. In the Description field, type a descriptor, for example Home Portal Account.

5. In the server Type field, note the preset value.

6. In the Server field, type the Web address of your WebSphere Portal server, for example http://abx8.ibm.com/wps.

Include the Portal context, for example /wps, when specifying the server URL, as shown below: http://abx8.lotus.com:10038/wps is a valid server URL.

http://abx8.lotus.com:10038/ is not a valid server URL.

7. In the User name and Password fields, type your WebSphere Portal user name and password.

8. In the Home Portal URL field, type the WebSphere Portal server URL, for example http://abx8.lotus.com:10038/wps/myportal.

Note: By default, this field is based on the value specified in the Server field above. For example, if you specify a Server value of http://abx:10038/wps, the Home Portal URL field would automatically be set to http://abx8.lotus.com:10038/wps/myportal. If your WebSphere Portal server is installed with a personalized Home other than the default "myportal", you must override the default value in the Home

Portal URL field, for example http://abx8.lotus.com:10038/wps/myPortalSrv1. In this case, the

Personalized Home of your portal is myPortalSrv1.

9. In the Authentication type field, choose a type, such as the recommended PORTAL_FORM type.

10. In the Authentication URL field, type the authenticating server URL, for example http://abx8.ibm.com/wps/j_security_check.

Note: The format for the authentication value is protocol://host/WpsContextRoot /j_security_check.

Note: The default authentication URL is http://abx8.ibm.com/wps/portal/cxml/04_SD9ePMtCP1I800I_KydQvyHFUBADPmuQy. If the default home of your port is different than "portal" you must modify the authentication URL accordingly, for example for default home "bos", the authentication URL would be http://abx8.ibm.com/red/bos/cxml/04_SD9ePMtCP1I800I_KydQvyHFUBADPmuQy.

11. Click OK.

Configuring component update for composite applications

Composite application update, supported by IBM Lotus Domino and IBM WebSphere Portal, is available in this Beta release. Composite applications and associated Expeditor/Eclipse-based features can be automatically updated when a user opens an application or by client auto-update running on a periodic schedule. Composite applications can update composite application definitions. Certain Eclipse features can be updated by provisioning.

A composite application definition can reference one or more Eclipse features as application requirements. Each requirement can specify a particular update site from which it will be provisioned.

84

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

You can use composite applications to install or update custom or third party features in Notes, as described here. You can also use the Eclipse update manager, if exposed in Notes, to install or update custom or third party features in Notes.

When an end-user opens a composite application or when a composite application auto-update operation occurs, if the application definition has changed, an update operation is run to provision both newly specified features as well as existing features with newer versions available.

The feature requirement update site setting can specify a Domino server (or local nsf replica) or a Portal server (or any HTTP server). Update site URL examples for each server are as follows: z

Domino server supports feature provisioning over the NRPC protocol z z

Domino server

NRPC://<server-hint-or-hos t

>/<replica-id>/ site.xml ->

NRPC://updates.ibm.com/__85257258006000A1/site.xml

Local replica ID z

NRPC:///__85257258006000A1/site.xml

Note the use of the double underscore and replica ID in the NRPC protocol.

Domino server optionally supports feature provisioning over the HTTP/HTTPS protocols z

HTTP://updates.ibm.com/updatesite.nsf/site.xml

Eclipse update sites in conjunction with Domino NSFs allow for such usage scenarios as the following: z

Host the updatesite.nsf on a Domino Web server. z

Supply an updatesite.nsf to others, in which others can merge this updatesite.nsf into their own. z

Supply individual features and plug-ins to others for their own use in their own composite applications. z

Create custom features and plug-ins with the additional capability to create a new updatesite.nsf and import these features and plug-ins.

Eclipse update site server (HTTP server) supports feature provisioning over the HTTP/HTTPS protocols

HTTP://updates.ibm.com/updatesite/site.xml

Domino Update Site NSFs

Domino provides the capability to put an Eclipse update site inside an NSF database. An update site is typically a separate database that doesn't contain composite applications. However, since any Notes application NSF can contain a composite application, an update site NSF may contain a composite application. For example, a third party could deliver a composite application and an update site, with the former pointing to the latter. Or an administrator could put the composite application in an update site NSF and make it available to users that way. You can define update sites in an update site NSF as described below.

85

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Creating and preparing the updatesite.nsf

1. Create an update site application, for example updatesite.nsf, using the File > Application> New menu sequence, using the Eclipse Update Site (8) template (updatesite.ntf) installed with the Domino 8 server.

The updatesite.ntf template is installed with the Domino server. The update site application

(updatesite.nsf) acts as an Eclipse-based update site hosted in an NSF Notes application on a Domino server. It dynamically provides the site.xml, features, and plug-ins.

2. Open the update site application updatesite.nsf.

3. Click the Import Local Update Site... action button.

4. From the resultant explanatory dialog box, use the Browse button to navigate to the update site folder that contains the site.xml file that you want to import.

5. Select the site.xml file.

6. Click OK.

An "Importing update site" progress bar appears.

Editing a Composite Application's feature requirements update site URL

There are two methods you can use to edit a composite application's feature requirements update site

URL:

A. Recommended method: Using the Composite Applications Editor to specify an update site for feature requirements

The preferred way to edit the update site URL for a feature requirement is through the use of the

Composite Application Editor (CAE) as described in the following steps:

1. In Notes 8 Beta, open the composite application.

2. Click Actions > Edit Application... . The Composite Applications Editor (CAE) opens in a new window.

3. From the resultant component list, right-click the desired component and select Edit Component

Properties.

4. Click Advanced. A list of properties appears.

5. Select the property for the desired feature, for example url.Feature_

NN, and click Edit.

Alternatively, click Add and enter the name and the value.

6. Click OK to exit Advanced.

7. Click OK to exit the Properties pane.

8. Click Done or the red X to close and save the changes.

9. The modified CA XML is re-read and processed.

B. Alternate method: Configuring a composite application to specify an update site

Use this process to define update sites for the contents of a particular composite application NSF.

1. The administrator obtains a composite application NSF, for example MyCompAppabx.nsf.

2. Accompanying the composite application NSF, the administrator obtains an update site folder, which contains a \features and \plugins subdirectory, as well as a site.xml file. The site.xml file lists features contained within the update site folder.

86

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

3. The administrator modifies the composite application's .xml to point to a specific Domino update site. a. Open a composite application, for example MyCompAppabx.nsf, in Domino Designer on the

Domino server.

As the application is opening, do not click Cancel.

Accept any security screen prompts.

b. Click Composite Application > Application in the left pane navigator. c. Click the composite application name in the list and then click the Export tab.

This action outputs to an xml file of the same name, for example MyCompAppabx.xml.

Leave the composite application open.

d. Open the xml file created in the previous step. e. Modify each "url.feature" value to point to the needed Domino update site. For example, for each

<preference namename=" url.feature"> entry, where url.feature is the placeholder for the update site

URL and the specific feature name, point to the needed Domino update site.

The following format uses an NRPC protocol:

NRPC://< server>/__<replicationID>/site.xml

The following format uses an HTTP protocol: http://< server>/updatesite.nsf/site.xml

4. Save and close the xml file.

5. In Domino Designer and within the open composite application, click the composite application name in the list, click the Refresh tab, and select the modified composite application .xml file.

6. Open the update site application updatesite.nsf and import the site.xml file from the local update site folder that accompanies this composite application.

A user can now open the composite application using a Notes database link, bookmark, or File >

Application > Open (or Ctrl-O) on the server to initiate update.

For information about controlling user-initiated updates, see the "Enabling user-initiated update" release note.

Retrieving composite application definitions (CA XML) from Domino

The NRPC URL format for retrieving composite application updates is as below:

NRPC://<Server-hint-or-host>/<replica-id>/composite.xml?<param>=<value>

Where:

Server-hint-or-host = DNS host name, IP address, or server name

Replica-id of the database on the target server

Param = <name|unid>

Name = String to be used to lookup CA design element in view -- Look up first as a name and if not found, then as an alias.

UNID = UNID of the composite application design note

For example:

NRPC://abx_tc.upcdev.ibm.com/__8525634000734621/composite.xml?name=Hannover

87

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

WebSphere Portal and Composite Applications

WebSphere Portal composite application update is made available to the Lotus Notes 8 user through the

Home Portal Account setting in Lotus Notes 8, as determined by the Domino administrator. In addition, the administrator must also have installed the Lotus Notes 8 server client installer on the same WebSphere

Portal server to which the user's Home Portal Account points. WebSphere Portal composite application update pertains most applicably to the Lotus Notes 8 user who is working with composite applications that contain portlets. For related information see the Expeditor 6.1 information center at http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/ledoc/v6r1/index.jsp -- look for updates at the 6.1.1 version information center as it becomes available.

By default, the Linux kernel limits the number of file descriptors that any one process can open; the default is 1024. This limit includes socket file descriptors that are opened during basic client/server communications, therefore is too restrictive for the Domino process. Do not assume that having fewer than 1024 databases (or files) in the Domino data directory is an indicator of the maximum number of open file descriptors that Domino will require. In order to scale above "tens" of client connections, this default must be overridden by the Linux administrator.

89

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

The mechanism for overriding the default varies depending on how the Domino server is started. There are 2 basic scenarios:

1. Domino is started from a login session

For this case, the default must be overridden by modifying the file /etc/security/limits.conf AND insuring it is respected by the login. Edit /etc/security/limits.conf using root and add or modify the lines: domsrvr soft nofile 20000 domsrvr hard nofile 49152 where "domsrvr" is an example of the user id that will run the Domino server. Specify the UNIX user name in the first column that is the owner of the notesdata directory specified during Domino installation. If more than one Domino partition exists on the same Linux for System z platform, repeat these lines for each user id. The "soft" value specifies the new default file descriptor limit (ulimit -n), and the "hard" value specifies the maximum file descriptor limit that may be set by the user.

For SLES 8 and SLES 9

In order for these limits to be respected following logon, ensure the following line is in the appropriate pam.d login file: session required /lib/security/pam_limits.so

For RHEL 4

In order for these limits to be respected following logon, ensure the following line is in the appropriate pam.d login file: session required /lib64/security/pam_limits.so

.

For example, if ssh login is used, this line must appear in /etc/pam.d/sshd

If telnet is used, this line must appear in /etc/pam.d/login

If rlogin is used, this line must appear in /etc/pam.d/rlogin

The user id must login after the above changes are made and saved.

2. Domino is automatically started through /etc/init.d

The redbook "IBM Lotus Domino 6.5 for Linux on zSeries Implementation " discusses this procedure in detail (Chapter 9, Section "Automating Domino startup and shutdown"). It is worth noting, however, that /etc/security/limits.conf settings are NOT respected when Domino is automatically started by a

/etc/init.d script. Therefore, a line such as the following MUST appear in the "start" section of such a script: ulimit -n 20000

Warning: Always make /etc/security/limits.conf change ( 1. above) in addition to modification of the

"start" script. Otherwise, on the occasion that Domino is started from a login session, the file descriptor limit will be inadequate.

90

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Kernel values modified by Domino

In addition to the above, other Linux kernel value changes are needed for large scale Domino environments. Unlike the per-process filehandle limit, which must be modified before logon of the Domino user id, these values can be modified by Domino itself. At startup, a program named "tunekrnl" runs with root authority and sets these values in the /proc filesystem. Once set, these /proc values will not change until Linux is (re)booted, at which time they revert to their default values. The exception to this is

"mapped_base", which is a process-local setting made at each Domino startup. The "tunekrnl" log of

/proc filesystem changes tends to vary from many (following a Linux boot) to few (subsequent Domino startups). The kernel values modified by "tunekrnl" are: kernel parameter

/proc/sys/fs/file-max

/proc/sys/kernel/sem

/proc/sys/kernel/shmmax

/proc/sys/net/ipv4/tcp_fin_timeout default value

(as low as 8192)

Swap configuration for Linux for System z

SLES8 (31-bit) supports up to 2 Gigabytes of memory; a Domino server supporting thousands of users will typically require more than 2 Gigabytes of memory, causing swapping to occur in this environment. At least 1 Gigabyte should be allocated as a swap "disk", however actually swapping to disk (DASD) hinders performance. One mechanism to keep swapping within system memory is XPRAM. The following general steps are an example of the configuration of 1 Gigabyte of XPRAM for Linux for System z in a native environment:

1.

Configure at least 1 gigabyte extended memory from the hardware console. Linux for System z will automatically detect that.

Configure the xpram driver. 2.

3.

The following Linux commands set swap space 1G from a 3G partition that was made into a file system and mounted off of the xpram_fs directory: insmod xpram devs=1 sizes=2000000 mkswap /dev/slram0 swapon /dev/slram

91

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

4.

5.

Make sure the xpram swap has higher priority than other disk swap.

Note that these settings will disappear on a reboot. To keep them active, place these commands into

/etc/init.d/boot.local

64-bit native environments, such as SLES9 (64-bit), should be configured with more than 2 gigabytes of real memory rather than dedicating the memory resource to XPRAM. In these environments, Linux swap should still be configured, however routine swapping is not expected and using disk for the swap region is acceptable.

Domino Server

CA key rollover not recommended in large organizations

In Domino 8, administrators can assign a new set of public and private keys to a Domino certificate authority (CA), which are used to certify the keys of OUs, users and servers in that organization. The process of assigning new keys is known as key roll over, and is documented in the Domino Administration

Help topic "Certificate authority key rollover."

The CA key rollover feature has not been tested in Domino customer deployments, so its use is currently not recommended in these environments. Organizations that want to become familiar with the feature are encouraged to use the feature to roll over the keys of a test CA, and then test users in their environment.

Domino for System i

Choose the format of HTTP log files

HTTP log files are written in EBCDIC format by default on the System i platform. You can change the format of these files to ASCII by setting the following in the NOTES.INI file. The setting will take effect the next time the server starts or when HTTP starts again (for example, "tell http quit" then "load http").

HTTPLogFormatAscii=1

If HTTPLogFormatAscii is not present in the NOTES.INI file or if the setting is HTTPLogFormatAscii=0, then the HTTP log files will revert to their default EBCDIC format.

Domino Server

Domino and DB2 - database A<database name>

This release note explains the database "A<database name>", for example, ADOMINO, that is created in

Domino and DB2 configurations that include a remote DB2 server.

If the DB2 server is remote, the computer on which the Domino server is installed must have at least the

DB2 Run-Time Client installed on it.

Note It could also have ESE installed.

Example of a remote configuration

In this example there are two computers : z

Computer A -- IBM AIX with the Domino server and the DB2 Run-Time Client installed. ls05.notesdev.ibm.com

On computer A we are using a db2instance named: db2inst2 z

Computer B -- IBM AIX with the DB2 server ESE "the remote machine" installed on it. p5viper.notesdev.ibm.com

On computer B we are using a db2instance named: db2inst5 (port 50003 )

92

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

The environment of the user who starts the Domino server must have the NOTES.INI setting

DB2INSTANCE=db2inst2.

The Domino server is started with transaction logging enabled.

During server enablement, the Domino Administrator client creates a DB2 node on computer A, using the information supplied to the Domino Administrator client.

DB2 nodename:

Host name: nodeaa p5viper.notesdev.ibm.com

Port number/ service name: 50003

At server startup, using the information supplied to the Domino Administrator client, the following occurs:

The DB2 database is created on computer B as database:

The DB2 database is catalogued on computer A as database:

DB2 database name is assigned:

ADOMINO

DOMINO

Domino

The name of the DB2 database created on the DB2 server is <the database name the user entered pre-pended with the letter A > ADOMINO

Manually cataloging the DB 2 database that the Domino server will use

Complete these steps to ensure that the Domino server uses a db2node to get to the db2database.

1.

To catalog a node (this <node name> is in the Domino server's NOTES.INI setting

DB2INSTANCE=nodename ), enter the following: db2 catalog TCPIP node <node name> remote <machine name> server <port number> db2 catalog tcpip node nodename remote machine.notesdev.ibm.com server 50001

2.

(Domino Administrator client ) Before restarting the DB2-enabled Domino server, run the DB2 command: db2 list node directory

In the DB2INSTANCE db2inst2 on computer A, you will see the following information indicating that the DB2 node has been created:

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

4. The first time that you start the DB2-enabled Domino server, the following occurs:

The database that is created on the remote DB2 server B is named: ADOMINO

The Domino startup process prepends the character A to the DB2 database name supplied to the

Domino Administrator client

The database is cataloged as DOMINO

5. To verify that the DB2 database ADOMINO was created, enter the following command: db2 list database directory

Installing GNU debugger on Linux prior to running NSD

You must install the GNU debugger on Linux systems running Domino servers to allow the NSD process to gather information related to system failures. Install the gdb directory in usr/bin and then ensure that the Domino server ID has permission to execute /usr/bin/gdb. Installing gdb allows NSD to capture call stacks from processes that are failing so that the problem can be examined and resolved. If you do not install the GNU debugger prior to running NSD, then NSD will be unable to capture critical diagnostic information about Domino processes.

Domino for System i

Java JVM property settings on a per Domino server basis

A property in the NOTES.INI file can be used to specify JVM Properties for the Domino server. This property, JavaUserOptionsFile, specifies a text file which contains the properties to add to the JVM. This text file can be either ASCII or EBCDIC and have up to 256 properties specified. Each entry must be in the form of "property=value" and be on a separate line.

Any property that can be set with the -D Java option is valid. Domino already provides a way of adjusting the stack sizes, etc.

If Domino specifies a property, and that property is also specified in the JavaUserOptionsFile, the

JavaUserOptionsFile value is used. For example, if Domino specifies the property "Foo=1", and the

JavaUserOptionsFile specifies "Foo=2", the JVM is created with "Foo=2".

Note There are currently 2 exceptions to this: java.class.path and java.library.path. Domino will link the values specified in the JavaUserOptionsFile to what Domino is already setting for these two properties.

Multiple Domino servers can share the same options file.

One use of this feature is easier enablement of Java applications that have native methods. In order for the System.load() or System.loadLibrary() to find the service program, that service program must be in the current path. In this case, the administrator would have to know what directories the Domino for iSeries code uses. With this change, the administrator can set the JavaUserOptionsFile in the NOTES.INI and in the referenced file specify "java.library.path=/QSYS.LIB/PGMAPP.LIB" where PGMAPP.LIB is the library containing the service program loaded by the java application.

For example:

In the server's NOTES.INI the following line is added:

JavaUserOptionsFile=/PGMApp/JvmOptions.properties

The file "/PGMApp/JvmOptions.properties" could have the following: java.library.path=/QSYS.LIB/PGMAPP.LIB java.class.path=/PGMApp/bin/PGMApp.jar

PGMApp.debug=0

PGMApp.serverName=Server1

Server Fast Restart

What is Server Fast Restart ?

When a Domino outage occurs, Fast Restart allows a new Domino instance to start while NSD diagnostics are being run on the initial Domino server instance. When diagnostics are completed the initial Domino server instance is automatically terminated. In the current beta release, Server Fast

Restart is only available on AIX and Solaris versions of the Domino server.

How does Server Fast Restart work?

All files and connections in use by the initial Domino instance are closed but processes and shared memory remain active until NSD diagnostics are completed. The new instance will be started by a

Server Fast Restart process called faultmon.

When the initial Domino instance fails it will send a message to a monitoring program called faultmon

. faultmon

receives the message over a named pipe, and restarts Domino. faultmon

has two options for restarting the new Domino instance; the default option is to start the new Domino instance in the background, while the second option allows the user to specify a script to start the new Domino instance.

How to configure Server Fast Restart ?

Server Fast Restart is an extension of Fault Recovery. To use this feature, Fault Recovery must already be enabled in the server document. Server Fast Restart will honor the NSD "Timeout is ignored but N crashes in M minutes" settings in the server document.

1. To enable Server Fast Restart in the current beta release the following must be added to the Notes.INI file:

SERVER_FAST_RESTART=1

Debug_DisableOSFileLocks=1

2. (Optional) To enable a script to start the new Domino instance, add the following to the Notes.INI file:

SERVER_FAST_RESTART_SCRIPT=<path to script including script name>

Following is a sample script which assumes you have xwindows installed and running: rome:carolynn{506}% more rapidstart

#!/usr/bin/csh -f setenv DISPLAY rome:0.0

/usr/dt/bin/dtterm -e /local1/M4/lotus/bin/server &

You will need to modify the script to include the name of the host you are running xwindows on. Also, as root on the system, you will need to run "xhost +" to allow the display of the new xterm to work correctly.

Make sure you try the script to ensure it works before you continue with setup. Problems with running the script will be easier to track down if there is less going on at that time.

3. Start faultmon

in the Domino data directory:

/opt/m4/lotus/bin/faultmon

4. Start Domino as normal

98

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Observations and known behaviors :

1. AIX: The new server will generate ipc keys with a new and unique ID, while the failed server instance's ipc keys will also be around for NSD to use. Once NSD is finished using the failed server instance's ipc keys, NSD will clean up the keys, as well as the processes.

2. Solaris: The new server will generate new and unique files in

/tmp

to support the new Domino instance, specifically the files titled "

.*please_do_not_remove

". The failed server instance's files will be left for NSD to use. Once NSD is finished using the failed server instance's files, NSD will clean up the files, as well as the processes.

3. When using NSD with Server Fast Restart with Domino, it is necessary to use the

-key

option to specify which instance to collect information about. Future releases will allow NSD to default to the current running instance. a. A quick way to determine the key for the current instance is to look for the last key generated in the technical support directory. From the Domino data directory: cd IBM_TECHNICAL_SUPPORT ls -tla | head b. To run NSD to collect data with an example key of FD9AA800, from the Domino data directory:

/opt/m4/lotus/bin/nsd -key FD9AA800 c. To run NSD to terminate Domino with an example key of FD9AA800, from the Domino data directory

/opt/m4/lotus/bin/nsd -kill -key FD9AA800

4. In the current beta release, Server Fast Restart does not work with a server ID with a password.

5. To ensure satisfactory performance of the new Domino instance while NSD is collecting data, it is recommended to have double the amount of physical memory available. Specifically, if the Domino instance uses up to 4 GB of physical memory, it is recommended that the new instance of Domino has access to an additional 4 GB of physical memory.

Domino Server

SSL Cryptographic Accelerators

Starting with Notes/Domino 7, the SECManipulateSC API function can be used to push the server's RSA keypair from an SSL keyring file onto a cryptographic token that supports PKCS#11. This will cause all private key operations involving the server key to be performed upon the token. This cryptographic token can be a traditional smartcard (which will result in terrible performance issues) or an SSL cryptographic accelerator that provides a PKCS#11 interface.

The only cryptographic accelerator that has been tested is the Rainbow CryptoSwift eCommerce Server

Accelerator PCI CS400 model 2.2.6a, using the PKCS#11 DLL installed to c:\WINNT\system32\Cryptoki22.dll with the PKCS11_NO_HWCHECK=1 NOTES.INI variable set.

In the current beta release, the server's ID file must be smartcard-enabled in order for the PushKyrKey operation to succeed.

Ending the Notes 8 uninstall process before completion

If you end the Lotus Notes 8 Beta uninstall program prematurely, you may be prompted to navigate though various error messages, then be prompted to restart your system. After restart, rollback begins.

When rollback is complete, some files and empty folders may remain in your installation directory. To avoid this complication, be sure to let the uninstall program run to completion.

Lotus Notes

Repair not supported for Eclipse -based features and shortcuts

For Lotus Notes 8 shortcuts, including the IBM Lotus Productivity Tools, and for installed features resident in the < install_dir>\framework folder, the traditional Windows Repair utility, obtained using Add/Remove

Programs > Change, is not functional. Running the Repair utility can leave the Lotus Notes 8 installation in a bad state and should be avoided. If you inadvertently run the utility and then encounter problems uninstalling or reinstalling Lotus Notes 8, see the "Cleaning a previous Notes 8 Beta installation from your client" release note for related information.

Composite Applications issues

Domino Designer

Composite Application Editor saves application with no changes

The Composite Application Editor saves an application when nothing has changed. There currently is no workaround, so care must be given when multiple users are editing an application on a Domino server.

Lotus Notes, Domino Designer

Composite applications only open in Notes client

A composite application can only be opened in the Notes client. In that case, the CA.XML that defines the application is read and any additional features are then provisioned.

When a composite application is opened in the Domino Designer client, the CA.XML is NOT read, and provisioning does not occur.

Domino Designer

Errors occur using merged WSDL files in composite applications

There are known problems with composite applications that contain multiple WSDLs in the same NSF component. It is recommended, therefore, that you do not use more than one WSDL in a single NSF.

Domino Designer

Errors occur when adding local components

Errors may occur when adding local components (for example, Lotus Productivity Editors) to composite applications from the Composite Application Editor Component Palette. This occurs because not all local components are currently supported.

Domino Designer

No "locking" occurs when editing NSFs simultaneously

In cases where two or more users are editing an application on a Domino server using the Composite

Application Editor, only the changes of the first user that saves are actually saved. There is no "locking" of applications in Domino as there is in WebSphere Portal.

Domino Designer

NSF components in composite application not visible in a browser

NSF components in composite applications are not visible when you view your application with a browser.

In the previous beta release , you could configure the component on Portal using DAP to display the NSF component. This feature has been disabled for this release.

When using the Composite Application Editor, you should use the Domino Application Portlet when calling

NSFCompGen for NSF components to be visible.

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Domino Designer

Only one page is made available in Launch tab

In multi-page composite applications with child pages, only one page is made available for selection in the

Page field drop-down box of the Database Infobox Launch tab. As a result, child pages cannot be opened directly when opening the database, because they do not show up in the Page field of the Launch tab of the Database Infobox.

Domino Designer

References to obsolete tools appear in Designer documentation

While using the Domino Designer Help, you may find references to the "WSDL" and "NSFCOMPGEN" tools appear in the documentation and in Search lists. These tools are obsolete and any references to them should be ignored.

Domino Designer

Stacked folder tab names display as "Untitled"

When restarting Notes with an open composite application, stacked folder tab names in the composite application may redisplay as "Untitled" even if they have an existing title. There is no current workaround.

Domino Designer

Timing problems occur with page transitions and properties

Timing problems occur with page transitions in combination with publishing properties onPageOpen using multiple pages. Abnormal page switching may occur when you fire multiple properties on multiple pages.

Domino Designer

Wire does not fire in composite application

While creating a composite application, for example, that has two views which are tabbed, a component wire may not fire. To be more specific, by changing which view/tab is on top, the next selection in the main view on the left will not fire the component wire. There is no workaround.

Multiple Java Server Console instances

If you intend to use more than one instance of the Java Server Console on the system, the first Java

Server controller that starts will bind to port 2050. Subsequent requests to start the Java Server controller for another Domino server will attempt to use that same port and will fail.

Workaround

To start more than one Java Server controller, manually create or edit the dcontroller.ini file in the

Domino server's data directory and specify the IP address of the Domino server and a port number other than 2050.

Domino Server, Domino for System i

System i: Java heap dump not generated with "classic" JVM

If you choose to use the non-default "classic" JVM using the Notes.INI value

JavaUseClassicJVM=1

, note that a heap dump (.phd file in the server's data directory) will not be generated if the JVM encounters an out of memory condition. The heap dump will be generated if you use the default JVM, J9.

See the "System i: Software requirements" release note for more information.

Domino Server, Domino for System i

System i: Tivoli Enterprise Console not supported

The Tivoli Enterprise Console (TEC) functionality with the Domino server is not supported on the Domino for System i platform.

Domino for System z

System z: zFS filesystem limitation

On System z, Lotus does not recommend using the z/FS aggregate dynamic GROW feature for Domino file systems. z/FS is based on a UNIX file system software product that can take minutes (15 minutes in some cases) to grow a z/FS file system in an aggregate. During the time the z/FS aggregate is grown, all file systems within an aggregate are quiesced, in order to format the expanded part of the file system.

This quiesce would be detrimental to Domino, as all disk I/O and client responses would cease during the aggregate GROW process.

Lotus also recommends that you continue to monitor the console log for the message "

Warning: cannot merge full text index a/notes/data/mtdata/mtstore.ft due to insufficient disk space

" and manually grow z/FS files systems as needed during off-peak hours.

Web Services issues

Domino Server

Consuming SOAPENC faults with multi -refs

Java Web service consumer script library methods are unable to fully deserialize thrown provider faults that employ SOAPENC multi-ref's. An empty fault is returned instead. This may be addressed in a future release.

117

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Domino Designer

Multi-byte characters in WSDL documents

WSDL documents are Unicode-based XML documents and, as such, may contain characters which are multi-byte in local operating system character sets. Because of file system dependencies, importing

WSDL into a Java Web service or Java script library may not succeed for WSDL documents containing such characters.

Domino Designer, Domino Server

Web Service version compatibilities

Web services created using Domino Designer 7.x will run on a Domino 8 server with original Domino 7.x behaviors, except for obvious bug fixes. However, the reverse is not supported, for example, a Domino

7.x server cannot support Web services implemented or generated using Domino Designer 8, due to

Domino Designer 8 modifications and improvements to mappings between WSDL/XML Schema and Java or LotusScript language constructs.

Accordingly, invoking a Designer 8 Web service or requesting its WSDL document will, if hosted on a

Domino 7.x server, return one of the following HTML messages: service

"This version of the Web Service design is not supported on this server" -- from a Java Web or:

"Error 500"

"HTTP Web Server: Lotus Notes Exception - Unknown LotusScript Error." -- from a LotusScript

Web service

Further, opening a Designer 7.x Web service using Designer 8 will display the following warning:

"The selected Web service has less-advanced features than are supported by this version of

Designer. If changes regenerate the WSDL interface, then less-advanced Domino Web Service runtime environments will no longer execute this service".

However, for Domino 8 Beta 3, Domino 7.x Web services saved using Designer 8.0 will lose their compatibility with previous versions of Domino and Designer, regardless of the changes made. This restriction may change for the final release.

Also, making changes using Designer 8 that regenerate the WSDL interface for a Domino 7.x Web

Service will require confirmation in a dialog box, since the Web Service will be permanently upgraded for

Domino 8, and will no longer be compatible with Domino 7.x.

Finally, opening a Designer 8 Web service using Designer 7.x will display the following warning:

"This Web Service has been previously saved in a newer version of Designer. This version of

Designer being used will not be able to save the Web Service."

118

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Domino Designer, Domino Server

Web Services and Arrays

By default, the WSDL representations generated by Domino Designer 8 for arrays in a LotusScript or

Java Web service implementation are of the following forms: z

XML "literal" form for Web service design elements that have rpc/literal, document/literal, or wrapped

SOAP message formats:

<complexType name="xxxArray">

<sequence>

<element name="elem" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded" type="[array element type]"/>

</sequence>

</complexType> z the SOAP-encoded ("SOAPENC") form for Web service design elements that have the rpc/encoded

SOAP message format:

<complexType name="ArrayOfxxx">

<complexContent>

<restriction base="soapenc:Array">

<attribute ref="soapenc:arrayType" wsdl:arrayType="[array element type]"/>

</restriction>

</complexContent>

</complexType>

In addition, the XML "literal" form is also generated from Java Web service implementations for what are commonly known as Java Bean "indexed" properties in a Java Web service value type.

During WSDL importing, XML "literal" arrays are always supported, regardless of SOAP message format.

However, Domino Designer 8 no longer imports WSDL descriptions using SOAP-encoded ("SOAPENC") arrays together with "literal" SOAP message formats (i.e. rpc/literal, document/literal, or wrapped).

The remainder of this Release Note is specific to LotusScript Web services .

Empty Arrays

Empty arrays in a SOAP request or response (i.e. literal array elements that are completely absent, or elements with a SOAPENC "arrayType" attribute, but no array content children) are supported for Domino

8.0 Web services by passing uninitialized dynamic arrays to the Domino 8.0 provider or consumer.

This is a change in behavior from Domino 7.x Web service providers (which still either trigger runtime

SOAP faults, or receive arrays of length 1). This change suggests that the receiving consumer or provider should be implemented to handle ErrUninitDynArray errors, for detecting that empty arrays have been received during attempts to access them.

119

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Fixed-Size and Dynamic Arrays

Fixed arrays are supported only when they are used within a Type declaration. For example:

Type MyType myArray(2,2) As Long

End Type

' fixed-size array

Dynamic arrays are supported only when used within a Class declaration: For example:

Class MyClass myArray() As Long ' dynamic array

End Class

Using arrays in other constructs may cause unpredictable results, including causing server stability problems (see SPR# TCAR6HPUH6).

Multidimensional Arrays

Serialization of multidimensional SOAP-encoded arrays are not currently supported. Such a serialization results in a single-dimension SOAP array containing all of the LotusScript array's elements, but with an incorrect array-size value in the "arrayType" attribute. (see SPR# TCAR6HPT4L)

Support for deserialization of multidimensional SOAP-encoded arrays was added with the 7.0.1 release.

There are, however, some limitations: z z

Multidimensional arrays are not supported when the array is a member of a LotusScript "Type" statement, or when the elements in the array are defined with a LotusScript "Type" statement.

For such cases, it is suggested that a "Class" construct be used instead.

So-called "jagged" arrays are not supported. An multi-dimensional array is considered to be

"jagged" when sub-arrays within a given dimension are of varying lengths. For example: z z

<a xsi:type="soapenc:Array" soapenc:arrayType="xsd:int[][2]" xmlns:soapenc="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/">

<item soapenc:arrayType="xsd:int[1]">

<item>100</item>

</item>

<item soapenc:arrayType="xsd:int[2]">

<item>200</item>

<item>300</item>

</item>

</a>

The optional "asize" component of the SOAP "arrayType" syntax is not recognized. The length of deserialized arrays will be based solely on the actual number of array elements present in the

SOAP message. For example, for an array with the arrayType attribute of "xsd:string[10]", but with 5 or 15 actual items, the length of the array would be 5 or 15 respectively, not 10.

The SOAP attributes "position" and "offset", for sparse and partially transmitted arrays, are not supported.

Domino Designer

XML schema mechanisms "include" and "import" are not supported

The XML schema mechanisms "include" and "import" are not supported. That is, any XML schema defined in an imported WSDL document must not refer to any external XML schema documents.

Known problems and workarounds

Release Notes

Accessibility issues

Lotus Notes

Clicking Details in Update Manager temporarily disables Tab key

When the Update manager dialog is showing the progress of the current provisioning operation, clicking on "Details", and then using the Tab key to cancel, disables keyboard strokes. You can not then tab away or cancel; you must let the operation finish first. Note, though, that you can use the mouse to cancel.

After the job finishes, the keyboard strokes are back to normal. The tab keys work properly if you do not click on "Details" first.

Lotus Notes

JAWS announces the state of indeterminate progress bar

When background tasks occur in Notes, an indicator appears on the status bar that contains an indeterminate progress bar. JAWS constantly announces the state of this progress bar at various times, even though this progress bar is not actually indicative of the state of progress of the background jobs.

Workaround

Highlight Notes while JAWS is running and press Insert+6, create a new configuration, choose Set

Options -> User Options, and turn off "Announce Progress bar Updates".

Activities issues

Lotus Notes

Activity entry will not save pasted data if no other edits made

If data from the clipboard is pasted into an activity entry description field, and no other edits are made (for example, if no keystrokes such as Enter, or other edits to the name, or tag fields of the entry are performed), then the pasted data will not be saved. As a workaround, make sure at least one keystroke is entered in addition to the paste. A simple carriage return using the Enter key will suffice before selecting

"Save".

Lotus Notes

Activity with Notes Document - Error due to server access rights

If a user is added as a member to an activity that contains a server-based Notes document, and that user does not have the proper access rights to the server on which the documents resides, they will receive a generic "#59:34" Notes error when trying to view the document.

variable in the Notes.INI file. Occasionally during this operation a user may receive a message stating "An error occurred while performing drop" which could be due to the amount of documents or content being brought over.

If this is the case the aformentioned .INI variable can be decreased to a smaller number to help alleviate the problem.

Lotus Notes

Linux: Activities chat entries do not display embedded images

Embedded images in a chat entry for clients using the SLED 10 Linux platform will not display when opened; an id for the image will display in its place. The embedded image is added as a response to the chat entry. The workaround to view the image is to open the response file entry.

Lotus Notes

Long user name within a Group will not have access to activities

Users with a user name of 100 or more characters within a Group will not have access to activities to which the Group has been assigned. The workaround is to add the user as an individual member to the activity, or create a shorter user name for that user.

Lotus Notes

Open Activities windows will not close upon switching IDs

Switching an ID in the Lotus Notes client will close all open application windows except any open

Activities windows. Close any open Activities dialog windows prior to invoking "Switch ID" in the client.

Lotus Notes

Outline view display issue after manual refresh

The Outline view for Activities entries will display only 30 entries after a manual refresh action, even though there may be more than 30 entries in the Activity. To work around this issue and correctly display all entries, toggle back to the List view and then to Outline view again. The Outline view then will correctly display all entries.

Lotus Notes

To Do items cannot be marked complete by assignees

To Do items may be assigned to members of an activity, however, if the assignee does not have owner access to the activity (for example, only Author access), they will not be able to mark the To Do as complete. The "Mark Complete" context menu choice will be available, but the To Do will continue to display as incomplete. The workaround is to have an Owner mark the To Do as complete.

Client issues

Lotus Notes

Cannot add RSS feeds to reader

On systems running a firewall, the feed reader may display the error "Valid feed not found". This indicates that there is no access to the network/feed, even when the feed is available but not parseable. The feed reader can also be blocked and display no error message. For example, you may be unable to add a new

RSS feed but see no error. Restarting the client resolves this issue.

Lotus Notes

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Lotus Notes

Grouped tab mode view display

In the group tab mode, you should not close the root view (listed at the bottom of a group list under a separator) before closing all the view documents. Note that once the view is added back to the list, it is treated as a document in the list, rather than the anchor for the group. The view item moves down the group list as other documents are opened. Also if you save tab states on shutdown, which is the default, when you restart the client the group tab name becomes the name of the last viewed document in the group.

Lotus Notes

JIS2004 character display on Windows XP Notes 8 client

Certain JIS2004 characters may not display properly in Lotus Notes 8 running on a Windows XP client. If the user has MS PGothic and MS Mincho fonts installed, the characters should render correctly. To ensure that Japanese JIS2004 characters display properly, do the following:

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Lotus Notes

Theme does not change after disabling high contrast

If you enable the high contrast theme using the UI sequence Control Panel > Accessibility options >

Display tab, enable the "Use High Contrast' checkbox, and apply the settings, then later return to the

Display tab and disable the "Use High Contrast" checkbox, the visual theme does not change to the default Notes 8 theme. Colors and fonts change because they using the default native.css. However, the theme remains still set to the "Operating System" theme in the Windows and Themes preference panel.

To resolve this theme display issue, restart the Notes client after disabling the "Use High Contrast" setting.

Lotus Notes

Toolbars can experience display issues in new window theme

The toolbars can experience redraw issues when using the Notes client in the new window theme - this can be enabled using File - Preferences - Windows & Themes, and selecting "Launch each document in its own window".

For example, when reading a message, the new window is smaller, so if you have enabled additional toolbars there will not be enough room to display the toolbars completely, and overflow buttons will be used. At times these overflow buttons do not display correctly in the new window mode, and sometimes some of the toolbar sections do not display correctly (they may get cutoff). Resize the new window to be a little larger, and the toolbars and overflow buttons will redisplay correctly.

Note: This tends to happen more when using your display in 1024x768 mode.

Lotus Notes

Unexpected feed reader subscription behavior

The Notes 8 feed reader does not allow you to subscribe to feeds that force a URL redirect. However, if you open a browser and enter the feed URL, record the actual destination URL, and use that destination

URL in your feed subscription, the feed subscription will be successful.

For example, the following feed may fail if a redirect is required: http://www.computerweekly.com/Feeds/RSS.aspx?cat=135

In this instance, if you put the above address into a Web browser address bar, the URL resolves to the following, which you can then use to subscribe to the feed using the Notes 8 feed reader. http://feeds.reedbusiness.co.uk/9d63ef1e-138d-422d-b543-2db74210f87a/CW360/The%20latest%20E-B usiness.xml

Of related note, when you first enter the URL (http://www.computerweekly.com/Feeds/RSS.aspx?cat=135

), the address is converted correctly, but you may receive an error message stating that the XML page cannot be displayed. If this happens, click "Go" again to resolve the URL, and display the expected XML page.

Composite Applications issues

Lotus Notes, Domino Designer

Applications not opened in the correct window

Applications are not opened in the correct window when the Composite Application Editor has focus. This occurs when opening another database/composite application from the client while the Composite

Application Editor is open.

Workaround

Whenever a new application is opened while the Composite Application Editor is open, click on any application in the main window to make it active.

Lotus Notes

Cannot open a URL Link to a Composite Application

This release note applies to Lotus Notes 8 running on the Windows platform:

There are some known issues with URL links to Composite Applications. You can create such a link with an opened Composite Application by using Edit -> Copy As -> Application URL or Edit -> Copy As ->

Page URL, and then paste it into a Notes document. Sometimes the link will inadvertently be truncated, resulting in an error message when you open the link.

You may be able to open the Composite Application using your browser by copying the URL into the browser. In Lotus Notes, with the document in Edit mode, put the cursor anywhere within the link. Select

Hotspot -> Hotspot Properties. Copy the URL in the Value field of the Hotspot Resource Link dialog.

Paste it in a browser. The browser will then attempt to open the application in Lotus Notes.

Alternatively, when creating a link to a composite application, use Application Links (Application -> Copy

As a Link) instead of Application URL or Page URL.

Domino Designer

Component data is sometimes not visible when editing

When editing composite applications with the Composite Application Editor, component data is sometimes not visible on the Editing pane.

Workarounds

1. Re-add your component to the application and the content of the original component should display within Composite Application Editor editing area. You then should delete the surplus component that has no data displaying.

2. Exit the Composite Application Editor to see your component data. The component data will display when the application is running in the Notes client. Re-edit the application again in the Composite

Application Editor and the component data should appear.

129

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Lotus Notes, Domino Designer

Component repositioning

You can reposition a component in Lotus Notes 8 Beta, regardless of whether the "Allow user to reposition component" option is enabled or disabled for that particular component. For example, if you start Lotus Notes 8 Beta, open an application using the Composite Applications Editor, right-click on a component in the editor, and open the Edit Component Properties dialog, you will see the "Allow user to reposition component" option. Enabling or disabling this option has no effect; you will be able to reposition the component regardless.

Lotus Notes

Composite applications open even if errors exist

The Notes 8 Beta client will open composite applications, even if they contain errors. There is currently no preference check to determine whether or not to open composite applications that contain errors.

For example, a component in the composite application may be unavailable. When you open the composite application you may see an old version of the component, a placeholder, or no component at all. It is not always obvious that one or more components have not been properly provisioned. If needed, you can close the application.

Domino Designer

DAP configuration settings impact what client displays

DAP (Domino Application Portlet) configuration settings (via browser/server), can impact the way applications display on the Notes client.

Workaround

When entering the Configuration user interface for DAP, go to the Rich Client Configuration page and make sure the following preferences are set as follows: com.ibm.rcp.fastView false com.ibm.rcp.fixed true com.ibm.rcp.visible true

Lotus Notes

Linux: Cannot open Composite Application bookmark or URL link

On Lotus Notes for Linux, you may not be able to open a Composite Application from a bookmark or from a link in a Notes document. The workaround is to open the application directly from the Ctrl+O dialog.

Alternatively, you may be able to open the Composite Application with a Firefox browser by copying the

URL into the browser.

In Lotus Notes, with the document in Edit mode, put the cursor anywhere within the link. Select

Hotspot->Hotspot Properties. Copy the URL in the Value field of the Hotspot Resource Link dialog.

Paste it in the browser. The browser will then attempt to open the application in Lotus Notes.

Domino Designer

Problem encountered wiring components with ?OpenDatabase

In Composite Application Editor, you encounter problems wiring components with the ?OpenDatabase command.

Workaround

Do not manually enter the URL with ?OpenDatabase. Use the Component Picker in the Composite

Application Editor to select the URL.

130

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Domino Designer

Tab names for components do not display

The tab name for components in composite applications may not display until selected. In other words,

NSF components are not initialized until clicked.

Workaround

Select each component first in the Edit mode navigator of the Composite Application Editor.

Domino Designer

Tab remains when deleting a page in CAE

When deleting a page in the Composite Application Editor with a child page, the tab at the top still remains. There is no workaround.

Domino Designer

Updates to Eclipse features not recognized automatically

Composite application Eclipse feature updates, provisioned via HTTP, are not recognized automatically.

You must make a change to the CA.XML and have it point to the new versions, or you need to have

Auto-update turned on and the update site URL needs to be in that list. In summary, if Auto-Update is not enabled you need to change the composite application XML to get the new versions.

Domino Designer

WSDL files must be changed to run Customer Profiles sample

Changes need to be made to the WSDL files generated by the WSDL.nsf provided in the Composite

Application Toolkit before you use them with the Customer Profiles sample.

Workaround

Do the following to use the WSDL files generated by the WSDL.nsf with the Customer Profiles sample z z

Import the new CorpAcct WSDL into corpacct.nsf.

Change the Composite Settings in the ID and Account Column Properties of the "All Documents" view of corpacct.nsf to match what is specified in the new WSDL files. z z z z

Update the WSDL files for the two Java Portlets - com.ibm.notes.samples.AccountManagerComponent and com.ibm.notes.samples.SalesHistoryComponent - into their respective deployable plugins. These are available in <Install Dir>\framework\shared\eclipse\plugins.

Open the composite application sample in the client.

Edit the composite application using the Composite Application Editor by redefining the wires to the settings in the new WSDL files.

Save and close the Composite Application Editor.

Contacts issues

Lotus Notes

New Location added in PNAB does not display in Location Switcher

If a new location document is created from the personal name and address book, it is not immediately available to be displayed in the location switcher. The location will be displayed after exiting and restarting the Notes Client.

Workaround

The new location is immediately displayed if the new location is created from the Location Switcher rather than manually creating it in the personal name and address book.

DB2 issues

Domino Server

Do not upgrade Domino 7.x to Domino 8 DB2-enabled Notes database

If you have enabled your Domino servers to communicate with DB2, and you have DB2-enabled Notes databases, do not migrate directly from Domino 7.x to this Domino 8 Beta release. If you do so, you will be unable to access your data.

Workaround

1.

2.

3.

4.

Create NSF database replicas of the DB2-enabled Notes databases. Use the Create Replica tool in the Domino Administrator. Be sure to create the replica on a Domino server configured with NSF as the default datastore.

Upgrade to Domino 8.

Run the server enablement tool to allow the Domino and DB2 server to communicate.

Convert the NSF database replicas back to DB2-enabled Notes databases.

Domino Server

Domino and DB2 - error SQL0964C

The error "SQL0964C - The transaction log for the database is full" occurs when you run Fixup on a large

DB2 enabled Notes application and an "out of log space" condition occurs.

When this error occurs, the Domino server is unable to process application requests on behalf of DB2 enabled Notes applications. If you need to run Fixup for fixing corrupt folders, and you do not have a replica of the DB2 enabled Notes application, you can allow folder fixup by adding the following Notes.INI setting to your Notes.INI file on the server.

DB2NSF_Allow_Folder_Fixup=1

Using this Notes.INI setting for a large DB2 enabled Notes application can render DB2 enabled Notes applications inoperable until the Domino server is restarted.

IBM Lotus Productivity Tools issues

Lotus Notes

Linux: No "Save as type" option available

There is no "Save as type" combobox in the 'Save as' dialog for IBM Productivity Tools running on the

SUSE platform. File extensions need be set specifically to save a file as a certain type.

Lotus Notes

ODF file association is overwritten

The following file extension associations that are defined by the OpenDocument standard are overwritten on Windows platforms when you install IBM Notes 8 Beta: .odt, .ott, .ods, .ots, .odp, and .otp. If you want to change the association, please consult your system administrator. The following gives one possible way to change the association of certain file extensions:

1.

In the File Explorer, right-click on a file with the extension whose association you want to change, and then click "Open With"

2.

In the "Open With" dialog, click the program that you want to use to open the file, or click "Browse" to choose the program on a disk

3.

Select the check box "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file"

Lotus Notes

Special characters are not supported in file name

Use of special characters, like "*" and "#" in a file name is not supported, and should be avoided.

Unpredictable results, including opening the wrong file and overwriting other files, may occur.

Avoid using special characters when saving a document. If a file name contains special characters, rename it before opening it.

Lotus Notes

Unavailable network printer can cause performance downgrade

If a user's default printer is a network printer, and is not available, the performance of the IBM Lotus

Productivity Tools may be downgraded because of network latency. As a workaround, change the default printer to an available printer.

Lotus Notes

Using Productivity Tools and Notes 8 simultaneously

If you open one of the IBM Lotus Productivity Tools editors, for example from the Desktop or Start menu, and then open Lotus Notes 8 Beta the "Tools" and "Window" options in the Notes 8 top bar may display grayed and unusable. This issue only happens when the Lotus Notes 8 Beta is started after one of the

Productivity Tools editors. To avoid this issue, start Lotus Notes 8 Beta before starting any of the Lotus

Productivity Tools editors.

If this happens, exit and relaunch the installation and avoid navigating "Back" to previous install dialogs if possible.

Domino for System i

Domino installation may fail with signature violation on i 5/OS

Domino and OS/400 signatures

When installing Domino 8 for System i, the installation may fail with the following error message (check the job log for the job that issued the RSTLICPGM command):

Object has a signature that is no longer valid.

This is likely the result of installing Domino to a system that has the more stringent levels of object signature validation enabled for restore operations.

The policy to be used for object signature verification during a restore operation (for example, product installation) is controlled by the QVFYOBJRST system value, which has a default value of 3.

When installing Domino for System i, the system value QVFYOBJRST must be set to a value of 3 or lower prior to installing Domino.

After installation of Domino has completed, the system value may be changed back to a more restrictive setting.

An example of changing the system value QVFYOBJRST is provided below:

CHGSYSVAL SYSVAL(QVFYOBJRST) VALUE('1')

Information and known issues with the new UNIX ISMP installer

The new ISMP installer requires that you log on as the root user in order to perform the install. The following known issues occur when using the UNIX ISMP installer: z

There are three modes of installation with the new ISMP installer. Graphical interface in interactive mode -- use this method to synchronously monitor the installation processing and results. If the target console has no graphical interface, or if one is not desired, you can use console or silent installation.

When launching the install in graphical mode where the graphical interface is unavailable, the installer will exit display a message indicating that the installer is unable to run in graphical mode, and to try running the installer with -console or the -silent option.

To run the installation specifying the temporary directory, enter:

./setupPlatform.bin -is:tempdir "<directory>" where <directory> is the name of a directory on a partition with more available disk space

The new installer validates the group name such that the user must belong to the group being specified. If you successfully installed with specific user and group names in previous Domino versions, it does not necessarily mean that the previously supplied group name will now be valid.

If you provide user and group names, and the following message appears: "Group <group name> is not a valid group for user <user name>...," either (1) add the user to the group you are supplying or

(2) as that user, type the "id" command and choose a valid group that the user already belongs to.

Existing script.dat

files from previous Domino versions cannot be used with the new ISMP installer. Modify a local copy of the file sample unix_response.dat

provided with the install kits.

More options are now available than in the previous installation's script.dat

file. Take note of the following information: z z

If you select a Setup Type other than CustomServer, do not modify any of the Feature sections, for example, the "License" feature. Use these feature options to customize your installation when using a Setup Type of CustomServer.

Do not attempt to record a response file at this time. The installation will hang and the response file will be incomplete. Use the file sample unix_response.dat

provided with the install kits.

Please look for a workaround to this issue in the Notes and Domino 8 Beta forum, the site from where you downloaded the Notes 8 beta client, and these beta release notes.

Lotus Notes, Domino Designer

Shared node install: Do not use option "b" in silent mode

if you use the progress bar option "b" (/qb and /qb+) when doing a silent shared installation, the message:

"

1904 nslxbe registration warning

" appears at the end of the installation, and during subsequent uninstallation. You can click "OK" to ignore these warning messages, and the installation/uninstallation will finish successfully.

These warning dialogs do not happen when using "/qn+" and "/qn" for shared node install.

Domino for System i

System i: CHKPRDOPT error messages in language environments

Domino 8 for System i is only provided as an English (2924) language feature. To deploy Domino in a language other than English, you must first install the English version of Domino, and then install the

Language Pack.

If you install Domino 8 on a system where English (2924) is not the primary language installed, error messages will result from the CHKPRDOPT command as follows:

CHKPRDOPT PRDID(5733LD8)

Product 5733LD8 release V8R0M0 option *BASE load 2924 correctly installed.

Language *N not installed.

Product 5733LD8 release V8R0M0 option *BASE load 5050 correctly installed.

Errors found by CHKPRDOPT.

Similar messages may also result during the LODRUN or RSTLICPGM commands and are also normal.

These conditions are normal and do not affect the ability to configure or run Domino servers.

Domino Server, Domino for System i

System i: Domino install does not launch using EZ -Setup on Vista

The Domino installer does not launch when using EZ-Setup from iSeries Navigator on Windows Vista to install and configure Domino.

Workaround

Mail issues

Lotus Notes

Deleting messages may cause conversations to be out of order

In Notes 8, you can view an entire e-mail conversation by selecting a member document and opening an in-line conversation subview in Inbox or All Documents. In the subview, messages are organized by the hierarchy of how they arrived. For example, all replies are shown under the message to which they are replies, and indented.

If you delete a message which has replies to it, the hiearchy of the conversation may appear broken. For example, assume there are two replies to the first e-mail (the 'root'), and each of these replies has more replies. If you delete the first of the two replies, the second one moves up, and the "children" of the first reply appear below the "children" of the second.

What you started with: first e-mail (root) reply 1 (<-- this one is deleted) reply -to-reply 1 reply 2 reply -to-reply 2

What now appears: first e-mail (root) reply 2 reply -to-reply 2 reply -to-reply 1

Also, if you delete the root message in a conversation, only the first reply and any children will appear in the conversation. Note that if you have Soft Delete enabled, you can fix both of these issues by restoring the deleted message(s) from the Trash folder.

Invalid key format error when exporting a key to a token

When attempting to export a private key from the ID file onto a smartcard or other cryptographic token, you may receive a "The cryptographic key's format is invalid" error. This occurs when the key is in a format that cannot be exported to a smartcard, such as a classic (630-bit) Notes key, or a key that has already been exported from the ID file onto a smartcard.

Problems using Entrust certificates on smartcards

When using pre-loaded certificates and keys stored on smartcards, Notes/Domino follows the "PKCS#11:

Conformance Profile Specification" for RSA Asymmetric Client Signing, which specifies a set of attributes that must be in the keys and certificates, and a set of functionality that must be supported by the smartcard and smartcard software. In particular:

"A unique non-null CKA_ID value exists and has proper associations for all keys and certificates."

Some certificate authorities, including a number of Entrust CAs, may generate certificates and keys that contain a null (zero-length) CKA_ID attribute. This bug has been reported to Entrust, where it is being tracked as "SR 1-44960142". Future releases of these Entrust CAs may fix this problem.

Attempting to import these certificates with Notes clients before 7.0.1 will result in an "Illegal null parameter passed to security function" error.

A workaround has been added to 7.0.1 and this beta release to find, import, and use these noncompliant certificates and keys, with several caveats: z z z z

The first import attempt will only find and import compliant certificates and keys. Subsequent imports will find and import noncompliant certificates of this type, if any private RSA keys with a null CKA_ID attribute were noticed during the first import attempt.

The ID file must be smartcard-enabled; the mode of operation added in 7.0 to allow certificates to be imported and used without first smartcard-enabling the ID file cannot be used with these certificates and keys.

The "Lock ID with Key on Smartcard" functionality is not available when using these noncompliant certificates and keys.

These non-compliant certificates must be imported in order to be used; the new functionality added to

7.02 and this beta release to allow use of certs without first performing an "Import Internet Certificate from a Smartcard" action is not supported.

Domino for System i

CFGDOMSVR OPTION(*ADD) fails when NABSVR contains IPV 6 address.

Problem Description

Configuring an additional (*ADD) Domino server fails when the NABSVR keyword contains an IPv6 address.

The more likely scenario for this to happen is when you have a *FIRST Domino server that is only configured to use IPv6 and you want your additional Domino server to get the Domino Directory from that server. In this case, when configuring your additional Domino server using CFGDOMSVR, you can specify an IPv6 address for it but, during its configuration, there is no way to activate IPv6 because the

TCP_EnableIPv6=1

line is not added to the Notes.INI file. Note that to add that line to the Notes.INI file, you have to edit it manually, and it cannot be done while the CFGDOMSVR is running.

Workaround

Configure an IPv4 port on your *FIRST Domino server and use it in the NABSVR keyword when configuring your additional Domino server.

Web Style Query

The new default for view searches is "web style" syntax, meaning that if the user searches several words, the documents returned contain those words, but not necessarily in order. This is a change from the current Notes syntax; to search exact terms, quotation marks are now needed.

In effect, the AND operator will be placed between all query terms, including those terms using operators such as NOT, ACCRUE, etc. If the user types AND or OR (or the symbol equivalents) between two words, it will not be added.

Commas continue to mean ACCRUE, and will be left in the web query.

If an operator is given in lowercase (accrue, matchinglevel, exactcase, topic, etc.), it will become quoted to find the actual term instead of using it as an operator. Operators must be in all uppercase in order to apply properly.

The exception to this rule is the "common word" operators such as AND, OR, and NOT. They do not have to be in uppercase. Please note that NOT, however, is not an operator, so if the word NOT, in any case, precedes a word without a needed operator, AND will be added, for instance (lotus not ibm) =>

(lotus and not ibm).

Wildcards (* ?) will be passed through to a web query.

Finally, the symbols + and - will mean AND and NOT, respectively.

To turn off web-style query and use the old Notes query syntax, you can set the following Notes.INI parameter:

UseFTSyntaxOnly=1

165

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

You can also turn off web-style query from the UI. In the Notes client, choose File -> Preferences -> User

Preferences, Basic tab, and make the change as shown below:

There is also an "escape character" for web queries. If the user uses a forward slash (/), that parameter will not make it into a web query.

This release note applies to the topic "Preventing incorrect system time changes" in the Domino 8

Administrator documentation.

If the Restart_Time_Interval is set in the Notes.INI file and the difference between the OS Time and the

Domino Server

Limited support for LtpaToken 2

The Domino server supports the new format of SSO token, LtpaToken2, which was introduced in the IBM

WebSphere Server release 5.1.1. Support for the new token improves security for SSO deployments. For this beta release, LtpaToken2 is supported for SSO deployments that include Domino servers only (i.e. no WebSphere servers). If the deployment includes Lotus extended product servers, such as Sametime or Quickplace, or if the deployment includes Domino servers running releases prior to this beta release, than the SSO configuration must be set for compatibility mode whereby the Domino 8 server will produce both LtpaToken2 and LtpaToken.

Background

When the Domino Web server is configured to support single-sign on (SSO) session authentication, the user logs in to a Domino server and has an SSO token (i.e. a cookie) stored in the browser. This token is used thereafter to demonstrate that the user is authenticated. It can be passed by the browser to other

Domino servers in the SSO configuration as proof of authentication. When the user has a valid token, servers that the user tries to access do not reprompt the user for a password.

169

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Prior to this release, Domino supported two token formats (Domino-only format LtpaToken, and

WebSphere-compatible format LtpaToken). The new token format, LTPAToken2, is a new type of

WebSphere-compatible token. Similar to the classic LtpaToken, the new LtpaToken2 represents the logged-in user.

Domino features that involve the use of SSO tokens, including the LtpaToken2, such as HTTP SSO caching of Internet password changes or SSO name mapping, will work with the new token format for

Domino-only SSO deployments.

Domino Server

Modifying the Action field in the ACL dialog box

The Access Control List (ACL) dialog box for Notes NSF databases contains an Administration Server field and an Action field on the Advanced panel. Use caution when modifying these fields. The Access

Control List dialog box is accessed by choosing File - Application - Access Control from the menu bar of an open NSF.

NAMES.NSF - Domino Directory

By default, the Action field for the administration server for the Domino Directory is set to "Do not modify names fields." Do not change the Action setting for the administration server for the Domino Directory.

The purpose of this setting is to allow the Administration Process to update names (people, group, or server names) in critical areas of a database. The Administration Process automatically manages the names in the Domino Directory. Changing the Advanced ACL setting for this database causes the removal of names which are critical to other Domino features, for example, mail routing and calendaring and scheduling.

ADMIN4.NSF - Administration Requests database

The Administration Requests database (ADMIN4.NSF) is a log database from which documents are routinely purged. If you set the Action field on the ACL dialog box to anything other than "Do not modify names fields," you may cause performance problems when the Administration Process (adminp) processes requests. This does not apply to cross-domain administration requests.

NSD now runs as a Microsoft Windows service

Some Windows configurations prevent NSD from gaining access to the required information needed to collect diagnostic information. For example, Restricted Users in Windows XP is such a configuration. In this configuration, manually installing NSD as a Windows service to allow NSD to access the required information. In this Beta release, even with NSD installed as a Windows Service on Microsoft Windows

Vista, NSD will report multiple "access denied" errors.

You can manually install NSD as a Win32 service. When NSD is registered as a service, you can enter commands to start or stop the service, trigger NSD processing, generate status and trace messages, and request status information that can be written to the server console or to a log file. You can also uninstall the NSD service.

Enter all NSD commands from a Windows console window. For example, to install the NSD service, open a Microsoft Windows console window, navigate to the location of the Notes.INI file, and enter the following command: nsd -svcinst

170

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Installing the NSD service

Use this command to install the NSD service:

–svcinst

Installs the NSD Win32 service. Once installed and started, Notes and Domino fault recovery will use the

Win32 service for all attempts to invoke NSD.

Note that –svcinst only installs the service; it must be started separately, either by running NSD –svcstart, by using the Services control panel applet to start it, or by rebooting the system, in which case the service will start automatically. The install command registers NSD as a Win32 system service.

This option is only useful for situations where the service has previously been uninstalled and is only available on Windows versions of Notes and Domino. The -svcinst command is usually paired with

-svcstart, which starts the service. For example, enter the following: nsd -svcinst -svcstart

Starting and stopping the NSD service

Use the following commands to start and stop the NSD service:

–svcstart

Starts the NSD Win32 service. Once started, Notes and Domino fault recovery will use the Win32 service for all attempts to invoke NSD.

This option is only useful when the NSD Win32 service is installed and not started. It is only available on Windows versions of Notes and Domino. For example, enter: nsd -svcstart

–svcstop

Stops the NSD Win32 service. Once stopped, Notes and Domino fault recovery will run NSD as a child process for all attempts to invoke NSD.

This option is only useful when the NSD Win32 service is installed and started. This option is only available on Windows versions of Notes and Domino. For example, enter: nsd -svcstop

Using the NSD service

Use the following commands to manage the NSD service. For example, you can generate status and trace messages and request status information that can be written to the server console or to a log file.

–svclog

When specified with another service option (svcinst, etc.), this option causes status and trace messages to be appended to a log file named "nsdsvc.log" in the data\IBM_TECHNICAL_SUPPORT directory.

This option is only useful when specified with another service option and is only available on Windows versions of Notes and Domino. For example, enter: nsd -svclog

–svcreport

Requests status information about the NSD Win32 service from Microsoft Windows, which is then written to the console (stdout), and appended to the nsdsvc.log file (if –svclog is also specified). This option is only available on Windows versions of Notes and Domino. For example, enter: nsd -svcreport

171

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Uninstalling the NSD service

The uninstall command unregisters NSD as a Win32 system service. NSD -svcuninst does not remove any files from the system.

Use the following command to uninstall the NSD service:

–svcuninst

Uninstalls the NSD Win32 service. Once uninstalled, Notes and Domino fault recovery will run NSD as a child process for all attempts to invoke NSD.

This option is only useful when the NSD Win32 service is installed and is only available on Windows versions of Notes and Domino.

The uninstall command is usually paired with the –svcstop command. For example, enter the following to stop the NSD service, and then uninstall it: nsd -svcstop -svcuninst

Storing roaming user ID in PAB during user registration

Due to enhancements made to user registration for Roaming Users, you must now explicitly choose to store the roaming ID in the Personal Address Book by choosing the "In personal address book" option on the Register Person - ID Info panel (the Register Person - ID Info panel displays during the user registration process). Choosing this option causes Notes Client setup to attach the ID to the personal address book. Storing the ID in the Domino Directory is no longer required.

Streaming Cluster Replication

The current cluster replicator is awakened when something has changed in a database. For each cluster replica, the cluster replicator opens the source and destination databases, and determines which notes, if any, are worthy of replication, and then replicates the changes. It does the same for folder and unread operations. When complete, the cluster replicator moves on to the next database. In a high-activity server, it is possible that the cluster replicator may get "backed-up" causing it to have a higher replication latency. On a heavily loaded and highly active server, it may take longer to replicate all changes for a particular database. In addition, the cluster replicator must do a 1-1 replication with each cluster-mate.

Streaming Cluster Replication (SCR) takes advantage of the fully-connected nature of clusters and data streaming to produce a much lower overhead cluster replicator. In addition, SCR decreases the scheduled replicator overhead for clusters and can provide a significant reduction in cluster replicator latency. As changes occur (Note changes, unread changes, and folder changes), the changes are captured and immediately queued to other replicas in the same cluster. The result is a more efficient cluster replication.

To test the new SCR, you must have two or more Domino 8 Beta servers in the cluster.

Web Service <any> element mappings - Java and LotusScript

Domino Designer 8 includes mapping support for the XML Schema

<any>

element, both during WSDL import to a Web service provider or consumer script library, and during WSDL generation from a Web service provider implementation.

Java

For Java Web service providers and Web service consumer script libraries, importing WSDL 1.1 documents containing XML Schema

<any>

elements (including wrapped service operation input or return types) will generate those elements as javax.xml.soap.SOAPElement

interface types. Alternatively, javax.xml.soap.SOAPElement

members of Java value type classes generate to WSDL as

<any> elements within sequence elements of some complexType, as will SOAPElement input or return types for wrapped Java service operations . javax.xml.soap.SOAPElement

objects can be instantiated in a Domino 8 Web service through the use of the java.xml.soap.SOAPFactory

class. Supported SOAPElement operations are those which are specified for the javax.xml.soap.SOAPElement

interface and its related interfaces in the javax.xml.soap

package. The following example illustrates how one might instantiate, populate, and return a SOAPElement object in a Domino 8 Java Web service: import javax.xml.soap.*; public class PortType { public SOAPElement getAny() { try {

"theNamespace" );

SOAPFactory SF = SOAPFactory.newInstance();

SOAPElement SE = SF.createElement( "anyPart", "ns",

Name nam = SF.createName( "xsi:type", "xsi", " http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" );

SE.addAttribute ( nam, "xsd:string" );

SE.addTextNode( "The quick brown fox" ); return SE;

} catch (SOAPException se) { se.printStackTrace();

} return null;

}

}

LotusScript

For LotusScript Web service providers and Web service consumer script libraries, importing WSDL 1.1. documents containing XML Schema

<any>

elements (including wrapped service operation input or return types) will generate those elements as NotesDOMElementNode backend class instances. Alternatively,

NotesDOMElementNode members of LotusScript value type classes will generate to WSDL as

<any> elements within sequence elements of some complexType, as will NotesDOMElementNode input or return types for wrapped LotusScript service operations.

NotesDOMElementNode objects can be instantiated in a Domino 8 Web service by using the documented

API's for the NotesDOMElementNode and related backend classes.

WSDL

Generated WSDL

<any>

elements include the namespace attribute value of "##other", defined by XML

Schema to indicate "not the targetNamespace for the ancestor <schema> element". This prevents invalid overlap between namespaces for generated

<any>

elements and the default namespace for possible adjacent elements within a complexType, and lessens the need for WSDL fixups and reimporting.

A new user preference provides an easy way to open another person's Mail, Calendar, To Do, and

Contacts if you have been given permission to manage them. You can create shortcuts by setting a

Delegation > Shortcuts preference. The shortcut you create appears as a tab menu option. For example, if you are managing another John Doe's mail file, the option Open John Doe's Mail is added to the Mail tab menu.

You can set a new Calendar > Display preference to show meeting invitations as a "ghost" entry on your

Calendar, to process cancellations automatically, and to either show them on your Calendar as cancelled, or just remove them.

You can set up preferred sites, and meeting rooms/resources for those sites, that you can use when setting up meetings. Set a Calendar > Rooms Resources preference to always use a defined set of rooms and resources, to always add new ones when setting up meetings, or to prompt you for additional resources.

Domino for System i

System i: C and C++ Application requirements

ATTENTION:

Any applications that use the Domino C or C++ API on i5/OS need to be reviewed to make sure they are properly enabled for use with Domino on i5/OS.

There are two important considerations:

1.

Bind to QNOTES/LIBNOTES

Some applications incorrectly specify a library of *LIBL when binding to the LIBNOTES service program. This can result in incorrect operation in a multi-versioned Domino environment.

Applications must specify library QNOTES when binding to the LIBNOTES service program in order to function correctly in a multi-versioned environment.

2.

Enable for Teraspace

When 64-bit support for Domino becomes available, Domino for i5/OS will also change to use the i5/OS 64-bit pointer and teraspace support. To ensure proper operation, applications using the

Domino C or C++ API must be teraspace-enabled. This can be accomplished by recompiling the application with the teraspace compiler option specified. This is expected to provide significant improvement in Domino i5/OS performance when 64-bit support is introduced.

System i: CFGDOMSVR maximum length of DOM and ORG keywords

When configuring a Domino server using the CFGDOMSVR CL command, the maximum length of the following keyword values are changed as follows:

Keyword

Organization (ORG)

Domain (DOM)

Maximum length

63

31

Domino for System i

System i: CFG/CHGDOMSVR TIMEZONE and DAYSAVTIME keywords

The CL commands CFGDOMSVR and CHGDOMSVR that are used to configure Domino servers on

System i are changed to incorporate support for the system value QTIMZON that was introduced in

V5R3.

CFGDOMSVR

The Configure Domino Server (CFGDOMSVR) CL command is used to set up either a first Domino server or an additional Domino server. It is also used to remove an existing Domino server.

CHGDOMSVR

The Change Domino Server (CHGDOMSVR) CL command changes the configuration of an existing

Domino server. You can use this command to change specific characteristics or to add features that were not included in the original server configuration.

The TIMEZONE keyword of the CFGDOMSVR command is modified to accept a new value *SYSVAL which is the new default value.

TIMEZONE-Specifies the time zone to be used by the Domino server. The possible values are:

*SYSVAL

Specify the Timezone for this Domino Server based on QTIMZON system value. time-zone

Specify a new value for the time zone (GMT, ZW1, et. al.).

177

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

The DAYSAVTIME keyword of the CFGDOMSVR command is modified to accept a new value

*TIMEZONE.

DAYSAVETIME Specifies whether the server time stamp should be adjusted for Daylight Savings

Time. This value does not affect the actual system time. The possible values are:

*YES

Adjust the time stamp for Daylight Savings Time.

*NO

Do not adjust the time stamp for Daylight Savings Time.

*TIMEZONE

Adjust the time stamp for Daylight Savings Time according to the Timezone system value.

Note: *TIMEZONE cannot be specified here if *SYSVAL is not specified on the TIMEZONE parameter

Similar values are accepted on the CHGDOMSVR CL command, along with the *SAME keyword.

Refer to each command's Help Text for additional information and usage details.

Domino for System i

System i: Daylight Savings Time changes

The United States and parts of Canada are extending the period of Daylight Savings Time (DST), beginning in 2007. From 2007 onward, DST will commence on the second Sunday in March (three weeks earlier than previously), and end on the first Sunday in November (a one week extension). For detailed information about these changes, and how they affect Notes and Domino, please see technote

#21247972 at the following URL: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=899&uid=swg21247972

In addition, you can refer to the i5/OS Web page for additional information that pertains to iSeries and

System i. http://www-03.ibm.com/servers/eserver/iseries/domino/dst2007.html

Refer also to the release note: System i: Daylight Savings Time change not recognized .

Domino for System i

System i: Parallel save capability with BRMS and i 5/OS V5R4

BRMS has extended the parallel save and restore capability to the Integrated File System (IFS) with i5/OS

V5R4. Domino users of BRMS may want to investigate whether this new capability will help to minimize their Domino backup window.

Use the Work with Control Groups (WRKCTLGBRM) CL command and specify option 8 (Change

Attributes) for the QLTSSVR (or your own) control group to change the Media Policy for Full Backup from

"*NONE" to '2' (or more) more parallel devices.

If parallel backup is selected, then BRMS is required on the restore operation.

178

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Customers who run concurrent backups with Domino servers may already be minimizing the save time, if the servers consume approximately the same storage.

For more information on this feature, refer to the BRMS Web page at the following URL: http://www-03.ibm.com/servers/eserver/iseries/service/brms/domino.html

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

Domino for System i

System i: System Value QLOGOUTPUT

V5R4 introduced a new system value - QLOGOUTPUT (Job Log output). This affects Domino servers / jobs as follows: z

Each Domino server runs in a separate subsystem. The subsystem name is specified on the

CFGDOMSVR command; the default is DOMINOxx, where xx is a number. The WRKDOMSVR command shows the subsystem name. z z

Information for Subsystem is stored in the library QUSRNOTES

Each subsystem has a Job Description (JOBD) used when submitting jobs to a system z z

To view JOBD: Enter the command WRKJOBD JOBD(QUSRNOTES/*ALL)

One of the parameter of JOBD is Job log output , Keyword LOGOUTPUT: z

When a job completes, one of three actions occur that affects how the job log is created.

The following are values of the LOGOUTPUT parameter: z

The job log server produces the job log: (*JOBLOGSVR) z z z z

The job itself produces the job log; if the job cannot produce its own job log, the job log will be produced by a job log server. (*JOBEND)

The job log is not produced; the job log remains in pending until it is removed.

Domino for System i

System i: Use of the forward slash "/" character

When issuing Domino console commands on System i, be aware of the command syntax and use of the forward vs. backward slash.

For example, you may see the backward slash character "\" used to delimit directory and file names in general use examples.

On System i, use the forward slash "/" character.

Domino for System i

System i: Using iSeries Navigator tasks on the Web

Overview iSeries Navigator is the user interface of choice for many System i administrators, system operators, and end users. This Windows-based GUI, which is a part of the iSeries Access for Windows product, gives administrators an easy-to-use, Windows-based interface for managing key iSeries resources.

However, in order to use iSeries Navigator, you must have the iSeries Access for Windows product installed, both on the iSeries and your PC. What if you are home, away from your primary PC at work, and you would like to perform some quick iSeries Navigator task. Maybe you need to check the system operator's message queue to make sure there are no messages needing a response before work can continue. Or you might need to check the status of a particular job that is currently running, or make sure a key piece of printer output is moved to the top of its print queue so it can be printed immediately. Well, with Domino 8 and i5/OS V5R4 you can perform these and many other tasks, even though you are away from your main work PC! All you need is a browser and access to the desired i5/OS system.

This browser support is provided with a new feature called iSeries Navigator tasks on the Web. iSeries

Navigator tasks on the Web allows you to perform a subset of iSeries Navigator tasks through an Internet

Web browser. The interface may look slightly different, but the tasks you can perform are the same as when using iSeries Navigator Windows interface.

Administration of Domino servers from iSeries Navigator tasks on the Web is supported with i5/OS V5R4.

This feature, allows you to perform most of the same tasks that you can perform when using the Domino plug-in for iSeries Navigator Windows interface, but from a browser.

The iSeries Navigator Web interface for Domino differs from the iSeries Navigator Windows interface for

Domino in that it is shipped with i5/OS, whereas, the iSeries Navigator Windows interface for Domino is shipped as an iSeries Navigator plug-in as part of the Domino for System i product. Therefore, there is no need for any update operation to run on the client in order to get a newer version of the iSeries Navigator

Web interface for Domino. Whenever you update to a new i5/OS level, you get the latest version of the iSeries Navigator Web interface for Domino.

IBM Help Server

ADMIN HTTP Server

DDM Server

LDAP Server

ENDTCPSVR *IBMHELP

ENDTCPSVR *HTTP HTTPSVR(*ADMIN)

ENDTCPSVR *DDM

ENDTCPSVR *DIRSVR

Note: You do not need the Domino product installed on the same i5 system that has the iSeries Navigator tasks for the Web support installed. From any i5 system that has the Web support installed, Domino servers on any i5 system in the network can be managed. Also, any supported release of Domino for i5 can be administered using this Web interface.

Before users can access iSeries Navigator tasks on the Web, the system administrator needs to modify the HTTP Administration server configuration to automatically start the system application server instance. This special "system instance" must be configured and started before the iSeries Navigator Web application can function. To do this, the system administrator needs to perform these tasks:

3.

4.

5.

6.

1.

Start the HTTP Administration server if it is not already started

> STRTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(*ADMIN)

2. Go to the HTTP Administration Web page: http://<system>:2001/HTTPAdmin (where <system> is the host name of the iSeries system).

Click on the "Manage" tab

Click on the "HTTP Servers" tab, then select "ADMIN - Apache" from the Server list

Click on "General Server Configuration" in the left pane of the current page

Specify "Yes" for "Start the system application server instance when the 'Admin' server is started

"

7.

8.

9.

Specify "Yes" for "Stop the system application server instance when the 'Admin' server is stopped"

Click the "Apply" button

Stop, then start the HTTP Administration server so these configuration changes take effect

Once this "one time" configuration change is made to the HTTP Administration server, and the server is restarted, users will be able to access iSeries Navigator tasks on the Web.

Note: For more information on how to set up this Web environment on your system, see in the IBM iSeries Information Center : http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r4/index.jsp?lang=en

After you have set up iSeries Navigator tasks on the Web, all you need on your PC is a Web browser that connects to the Internet and you can begin working with the Domino tasks by clicking View All Tasks and selecting the Network tab.

Also, you do not need to worry about learning a new interface for these Web tasks. The exact same code and user interface that are used within iSeries Navigator on the client are also used on the Web. So, for example, if you're already familiar with the iSeries Navigator for Windows panel that appears when you select the "properties" action of a Domino server, you will see the exact same interface when you select

"properties" of a Domino server on the Web.

IBM Lotus Notes, Domino, Domino Designer 8 Release Notes

You can also create your own URL that points to the Domino tasks on the Web, as well as other iSeries

Navigator tasks on the Web, by using the URL Advisor. To use the URL Advisor, visit the following URL from a Web browser: http://<hostA>:<port>/webnav/WnServlet?task=home where:

<hostA> is the iSeries system name.

<port> is the HTTP port number set up with iSeries Navigator Web interface.

Click Create a URL... to create the URL for the Domino tasks on the Web.
