  2. Recently had an issue with an Oracle (11g) Scheduled Backup Job which had worked fine for a long time but started failing with the error &amp;quot;Initialization Error&amp;quot; when executing the RMAN script.&lt;/p&gt;

  70. &lt;p&gt;
  71. Restarting the server fixed the issue but is not ideal for a production machine.&lt;/p&gt;
  72. &lt;p&gt;
  73. Some Googling turned up a similar issue on an Oracle Community Forum (https://community.oracle.com/thread/1036886?db=5). As suggested in the post restarting the Oracle DB Console service fixed the issue without restarting the whole server.&lt;/p&gt;

  75. When using the Archive Now option in IBM Notes client it displays the error message &amp;quot;Entry Not Found in Index&amp;quot;.&lt;/p&gt;
  76. &lt;p&gt;
  77. This can be due to an archiving criteria which uses the selection &amp;quot;older than&amp;quot; and the mailfile contains documents without a valid creation date.&lt;/p&gt;
  78. &lt;p&gt;
  79. This can be fixed by running a script to check for any such documents and remove then manually.&lt;/p&gt;
  80. &lt;p&gt;
  81. Create a hotspot button and insert the code below (thanks to Alexander Bay) and send it to the user to run.&lt;/p&gt;
  82. &lt;p dir="ltr" style="margin: 5px 0px 0px 40px; line-height: 1.3; font-family: Arial, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif; background-color: rgb(238, 238, 238);"&gt;
  83. &amp;#39; Lotus Script send as button within a mail&lt;/p&gt;
  84. &lt;p dir="ltr" style="margin: 5px 0px 0px 40px; line-height: 1.3; font-family: Arial, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif; background-color: rgb(238, 238, 238);"&gt;
  85. Dim s As New NotesSession&lt;br /&gt;
  86. Dim viwApptUNID As NotesView&lt;br /&gt;
  87. Dim docol As NotesDocumentCollection&lt;br /&gt;
  88. Dim doc As NotesDocument&lt;br /&gt;

  93. If viwApptUNID Is Nothing Then Msgbox &amp;quot;Cannot find view &amp;#39;$ApptUNID&amp;#39;&amp;quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  94. &lt;br /&gt;

  96. Set docol = s.CurrentDatabase.CreateDocumentCollection&lt;br /&gt;
  97. &lt;br /&gt;
  98. &amp;#39;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;Loop through all docs in view&lt;br /&gt;
  99. Set doc = viwApptUNID.GetFirstDocument&lt;br /&gt;
  100. While Not doc Is Nothing&lt;br /&gt;
  101.

  102. Set doc = viwApptUNID.GetNextDocument(doc)&lt;br /&gt;
  103. Wend&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;&amp;#39; Not doc Is Nothing&lt;br /&gt;
  104. &lt;br /&gt;
  105. &amp;#39;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;Handle result&lt;br /&gt;
  106. If docol.Count &amp;gt; 0 Then&lt;br /&gt;
  107. Call docol.PutAllInFolder(&amp;quot;aaa_BAD_CreationDate&amp;quot;)&lt;br /&gt;
  108. &amp;#39; Call docol.RemoveAll(true)&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;&amp;#39; Hard deletes all documents found. Used only in case the documents cannot be deleted through UI&lt;br /&gt;
  109. Msgbox Cstr(docol.Count) &amp;amp; &amp;quot; damaged calendar entries found and moved to folder &amp;#39;aaa_BAD_CreationDate&amp;#39;&amp;quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  110. Else&lt;br /&gt;
  111. Msgbox &amp;quot;No damaged calendar entries found.&amp;quot;&lt;br /&gt;
  112. End If&lt;/p&gt;
  113. &lt;p&gt;
  114. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;
  115. &lt;p&gt;
  116. If it finds a document (usually a calendar entry created from ical) then manually cut and paste to archive file. Now try to archive now again and it should complete.&lt;/p&gt;

  120. Domino server service will not start and displays error when manually started:&lt;/div&gt;
  121. &lt;div&gt;
  122. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  123. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  124. &amp;quot;The IBM Domino Server (CDominodata) service on Local Computer started and the stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs.&amp;quot;&lt;/div&gt;
  125. &lt;div&gt;
  126. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  127. &lt;div&gt;
  128. No indication in console log but in the server data folder the Domino Controller log file (dcntrlrdcntrlrxxxxxxxxxxxx.out) it contains the error JVM_Bind.&lt;/div&gt;
  129. &lt;div&gt;
  130. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  131. &lt;div&gt;
  132. To fix add the lines below to the server Notes.ini:&lt;/div&gt;
  133. &lt;div&gt;
  134. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  135. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  136. ServerController=1&lt;/div&gt;
  137. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  138. TCPIP_ControllerTcpIpAddress=x.x.x.x:2050&lt;/div&gt;
  139. &lt;div&gt;
  140. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  141. &lt;div&gt;
  142. Where x.x.x.x is the server IP address and a firewall exception which allows the connection on port 2050.&lt;/div&gt;
  143. &lt;div&gt;
  144. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  145. &lt;div&gt;
  146. The service should now start.&lt;/div&gt;

  148. Domino 9.0.1 Feature Pack 8 enables moving views out of the database. This will make the NSF smaller and therefore can store more data before reaching limits.&lt;/div&gt;
  149. &lt;div&gt;
  150. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  151. &lt;div&gt;
  152. Set the following value in the server Notes.ini:&lt;/div&gt;
  153. &lt;div&gt;
  154. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  155. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  156. NIFNSFEnable=1&lt;/div&gt;
  157. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  158. NIFBasePatch=F:\NIF (or leave out to create in Data folder)&lt;/div&gt;
  159. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  160. CREATE_R9_DATABASES=1&lt;/div&gt;
  161. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  162. CREATE_NIFNSF_DATABASES=1&lt;/div&gt;
  163. &lt;div&gt;
  164. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  165. &lt;div&gt;
  166. Restart the server.&lt;/div&gt;
  167. &lt;div&gt;
  168. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  169. &lt;div&gt;
  170. Use &amp;quot;load compact -c -nifnsf on xx.nsf &amp;quot; to move the views out for existing databases.&lt;/div&gt;
  171. &lt;div&gt;
  172. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;

  202. Some emails received via SMTP are not displaying the correct name in Outlook when synced with IBM Mail sync. The attachment name is displayed as &amp;quot;mime.&amp;quot; missing the correct file extension.&lt;/p&gt;
  203. &lt;p style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;

  207. &lt;p&gt;
  208. Manually Saving As and renaming the file allows it to be opened and displayed in the correct application.&lt;/p&gt;

  212. By default the IBM Mail sync client will only sync 30 days worth of email from your Domino mailbox. This can be changed to sync all of your mailbox by setting the server Notes.ini values below:&lt;/p&gt;
  213. &lt;p style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  214. NTS_PRIMESYNC_TIME_LIMITS_MAIL_ENABLED=false&lt;/p&gt;
  215. &lt;p style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  216. NTS_PRIMESYNC_TIME_LIMITS_CALENDAR_ENABLED=false&lt;/p&gt;
  217. &lt;p&gt;
  218. For more information and values to sync a set amount of days look at the Knowledge Center article:&amp;nbsp;http://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSKTMJ_9.0.1/admin_imsmo/adm_controlling_mail_and_calendar_data_download.html#task_ngs_q44_yv&lt;/p&gt;

  220. We have had a number of users recently reporting their Sent Items were no longer syncing to their IBM Verse for Android client.&lt;/p&gt;
  221. &lt;p&gt;
  222. If they have multiple devices connected to Traveler then it is neccessary to get the device ID for the affected device. To do this run the Domino server console command &amp;quot;tell traveler show &amp;lt;username&amp;gt;&amp;quot; to list their settings as below:&lt;/p&gt;
  223. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;

  314. Or use * to reset all connected devices for that user (useful if they only have one device).&lt;/div&gt;
  315. &lt;div&gt;

  317. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;

  319. &lt;div&gt;
  320. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  321. &lt;div&gt;
  322. A confirmation message will then be outputted to the Domino server console. When the device then next sync&amp;#39;s it should pull down their email and the sent items.&lt;/div&gt;
  323. &lt;div&gt;
  324. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;

  326. After a Windows Update of one of our WSUS servers this week the WSUS service has started crashing.&lt;/p&gt;
  327. &lt;p&gt;
  328. KB3159706 (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3159706) seems to have caused the issue. Uninstalling the update (WUSA.exe /uninstall /kb:3159706) has fixed the issue.&lt;/p&gt;
  329. &lt;p&gt;
  330. More information is on Lar Lohmann Blem&amp;#39;s Blog here:&amp;nbsp;http://larslohmann.blogspot.co.uk/2016/07/wsus-server-crash.html&lt;/p&gt;
  331. </description></item><item><title>Domino file locking issue</title><author>Paul Farris</author><link>http://www.farris.co.uk/article.aspx?articleid=325</link><guid isPermaLink="true">http://www.farris.co.uk/article.aspx?articleid=325</guid><pubDate>Tue, 17 May 2016 09:32:00 GMT</pubDate><category>IBM</category><description>&lt;p&gt;
  332. Occasionally we get NSF files locked on clustered Domino servers and this results in an error like the one below when attempting to access them.&lt;/p&gt;
  333. &lt;p style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  334. &lt;em&gt;Database Fixup: Unable to fixup database d:\Domino\data\mail\jayz.nsf: This database is currently in use by another person or process, and cannot be accessed at this time. &amp;nbsp;In order to share a Notes database, it mvia a Domino Server by all users of the database.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  335. &lt;p&gt;
  336. This looks like a non-Domino process has a lock on the file but is actually the Cluster Replicator causing the issue. Restarting the server clears the lock but if it cannot be restarted then using the Unlocker application can force the release of the file lock.&lt;/p&gt;
  337. &lt;p&gt;
  338. 1. Install Unlocker (http://filehippo.com/download_unlocker/) on Domino server&lt;/p&gt;
  339. &lt;p&gt;
  340. 2. Right click on NSF file in Windows epxlorer and select Unlocker&lt;/p&gt;
  341. &lt;p&gt;
  342. 3. Select Unlock to force the release of file locks&lt;/p&gt;
  343. &lt;p&gt;
  344. Try accessing file again.&lt;/p&gt;
