What Domino Makes Trivial Number One: State Management 

By Paul Withers | 8/23/19 8:54 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

Don Mottolo makes a good point in his comment on my recent blog post, that there are aspects of other web frameworks that make it a non-trivial task. This is also really why some people talking about Domino are talking about “mid coders” and “pro coders”. And it’s also why the terms don’t really exist outside the yellow bubble.

The low code you already know 

By Ben Langhinrichs | 8/14/19 2:52 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

Over the next few posts, I hope to show some different features of Notes/Domino which actual customers use, both to suggest things you may not have thought of, and to highlight (after the fold) where our software is important even with these native applications. This first comes from an application a customer developed with the lowest of low code.

Fail2Ban Support for Domino on Linux -- Intrusion Detection 

By Daniel Nashed | 8/14/19 2:41 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

Domino supports Internet password lockout, which is meanwhile working for all internet protocols (it came in thru a fix I think somewhere in the 8.5.x code stream and isn't really documented). This does already help to protect individual accounts. But it doesn't currently help for the same IP trying to hack different accounts.

It's Beta Time! 

By HCL Digital | 8/7/19 12:16 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

It's incredible to think that it's been about a year since we started the successful Domino V10 beta program. We've made so much progress, and now we need your help to keep the momentum going. We are excited to announce the HCL Domino V11 portfolio beta program, and call on our community to share honest, constructive and thoughtful review and testing of the Domino V11 portfolio beta software.

First month with HCL software 

By Ales Lichtenberg | 8/5/19 3:07 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

We have completed the first month when HCL fully took over from IBM Collaboration software (Domino, Notes, Sametime, Connections …..). Information comes from all sides, we gain access to individual systems. Everything is not going smoothly, but from my own experience I know that the people of each teams are trying to help. I wish everything was successful and thanks to all HCL people and customers for patience.

Domino Portable Edition - Building the smallest Domino server - Hot Pants for Geeks 

By Thomas Hampel | 8/4/19 3:45 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Matteo Bisi

Two weeks ago at the the HCL Factory Tour #3 we've shown the (possibly) smallest Domino server ever built. With just 47,88 ccm (6,3 x 9,5 x 0,8 cm) it is just a little bigger than a credit card and small enough to fit your pocket. Also, for those of you who remember, it's much smaller than the Lotus Foundations box which Mike Rhodin introduced at Lotusphere 2008. Thanks to Panagenda we also were able to show that you can run Domino off the grid.

Domino Docker on Astra Linux 

By Daniel Nashed | 7/30/19 4:07 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

This morning got up early and took another look into Astra Linux. First of all I did another install without GUI to see how things would work with a server that is comparable to a CentOS minimum install. The installation was very smooth and straight forward even on command-line. The only part I had to setup manually was the network configuration and I had to install the SSH server (apt install openssh-server). That was the base for my installation.

Domino on Docker Project Updates  

By Daniel Nashed | 7/24/19 3:15 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Thomas and me are working on the Domino on Docker project which has been around for a while. We are constantly updating it with more functionality. Beside the main functionality of providing an automated installation we have a management script that can help to build custom Domino docker images for (e.g.) including applications.

Cross Certifing a Notes ID only works with a Safe.ID via C-API/Lotus Script/Java 

By Daniel Nashed | 7/24/19 3:12 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

For the Docker project I looked into cross certifying IDs via C-API and the Lotus Script/Notes Java classes. It turned out that this only works well for safe.ids. The information from the ID files which is needed for cross certification requires to open the Notes.ID. In Lotus Script/Java in a client you are prompted for the password.

Problems With MongoDB During Sametime Install 

By Gabriella Davis | 7/24/19 12:46 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

In my previous blogs I discussed installing Sametime 10. My installs all ran perfectly except for one point – when I tried to install MongoDB as a service it installed but then wouldn’t start with the service error “1053”, reported as “service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion”.

Installing Sametime 10 – The Proxy Server 

By Gabriella Davis | 7/24/19 12:44 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

The Sametime Proxy Server is needed if you have a Community server you want people to login to using either a web or mobile client, this includes having Sametime awareness for other products such as Verse or Connections. The Sametime Proxy server uses a DB2 database for iOS push notifications.
