We have recently installed a new Domino 64 Bit server. To set up a number of necessary connections with, among others, Exact we had to install the ODBC Driver for Notes Domino 9.0 on this new Domino server. We encountered a problem with this because we had skipped an important step after installing the driver, adjusting the system variables. A necessary requirement for a correct working of the ODBC driver is that the IBM Notes 9 installation path must be in the OS path environment variable! If the Windows OS Path variable does not contain the Notes installation path the ODBC driver will not work. In order not to forget this at a subsequent installation below the necessary steps for correct installation of the ODBC driver for Notes Domino 9.0. The following is based on an installation on a Windows 2016 server

This information includes device information, device security and data that allows the IBM Traveler server to know if a device needs to sync. The database files are stored on the IBM Traveler system in the data\traveler\ntsdb directory. As all Administrators know an increased internal database can affect system performance. Administrators can defrag the database to compact and optimize its performance

We are currently transferring our current 32-bit Domino Server to a 64-bit Domino Server. The 64 bit Domino Server will eventually run on a Windows 2016 64 bit OS. With this 'move' we are well prepared for a possible upgrade to Domino 10 in the near future. Since we are going to perform a reinstall or move to a new server we need, among others, the server ID of the current Domino server. In my next blog post I will describe how to move a Domino server to a new server in detail. In this blog post a quick tip regarding clearing the password on a server ID with a minimum password length. I needed this to set up a Domino server to launch without prompting for the password so the server reboots after power failures and crashes. Below the simple steps to clear the password from a server ID.

After March 30 the Push Notifications for Apple iOS devices will no longer work with the current certificate for Notes Traveler The only solution is to upgrade to Notes Traveler 10.0 or 10.0.1 to get the current APNs certificate
