  2. Domino server service will not start and displays error when manually started:&lt;/div&gt;
  3. &lt;div&gt;
  4. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  5. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  6. &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;
  7. &lt;div&gt;
  8. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  9. &lt;div&gt;
  10. 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;
  11. &lt;div&gt;
  12. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  13. &lt;div&gt;
  14. To fix add the lines below to the server Notes.ini:&lt;/div&gt;
  15. &lt;div&gt;
  16. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  17. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  18. ServerController=1&lt;/div&gt;
  19. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  20. TCPIP_ControllerTcpIpAddress=x.x.x.x:2050&lt;/div&gt;
  21. &lt;div&gt;
  22. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  23. &lt;div&gt;
  24. Where x.x.x.x is the server IP address and a firewall exception which allows the connection on port 2050.&lt;/div&gt;
  25. &lt;div&gt;
  26. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  27. &lt;div&gt;
  28. The service should now start.&lt;/div&gt;

  30. 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;
  31. &lt;div&gt;
  32. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  33. &lt;div&gt;
  34. Set the following value in the server Notes.ini:&lt;/div&gt;
  35. &lt;div&gt;
  36. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  37. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  38. NIFNSFEnable=1&lt;/div&gt;
  39. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  40. NIFBasePatch=F:\NIF (or leave out to create in Data folder)&lt;/div&gt;
  41. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  42. CREATE_R9_DATABASES=1&lt;/div&gt;
  43. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  44. CREATE_NIFNSF_DATABASES=1&lt;/div&gt;
  45. &lt;div&gt;
  46. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  47. &lt;div&gt;
  48. Restart the server.&lt;/div&gt;
  49. &lt;div&gt;
  50. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;
  51. &lt;div&gt;
  52. Use &amp;quot;load compact -c -nifnsf on xx.nsf &amp;quot; to move the views out for existing databases.&lt;/div&gt;
  53. &lt;div&gt;
  54. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;

  84. 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;
  85. &lt;p style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;

  94. 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;
  95. &lt;p style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  96. NTS_PRIMESYNC_TIME_LIMITS_MAIL_ENABLED=false&lt;/p&gt;
  97. &lt;p style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  98. NTS_PRIMESYNC_TIME_LIMITS_CALENDAR_ENABLED=false&lt;/p&gt;
  99. &lt;p&gt;
  100. 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;

  102. 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;
  103. &lt;p&gt;
  104. 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;
  105. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;

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

  204. 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;
  205. &lt;div&gt;
  206. &amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;

  208. After a Windows Update of one of our WSUS servers this week the WSUS service has started crashing.&lt;/p&gt;
  209. &lt;p&gt;
  210. 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;
  211. &lt;p&gt;
  212. 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;

  214. 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;
  215. &lt;p style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  216. &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;
  217. &lt;p&gt;
  218. 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;
  219. &lt;p&gt;
  220. 1. Install Unlocker (http://filehippo.com/download_unlocker/) on Domino server&lt;/p&gt;
  221. &lt;p&gt;
  222. 2. Right click on NSF file in Windows epxlorer and select Unlocker&lt;/p&gt;

  228. One of the cool features of new smartphone are that some of them have integrated fingerprint sensors which can be used to secure the device. I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 handset and this allows you to easily unlock the screen by swiping the home button.&lt;/p&gt;
  229. &lt;p&gt;
  230. Unfortunately this unlocking method does not work with Traveler when a require device password policy is set. It results in the error message &amp;quot;Error: Sync is disable because of a device security poicy violation&amp;quot;.&lt;/p&gt;
  231. &lt;p&gt;
  232. I have logged a PMR with IBM SUpport and here is their response:&lt;/p&gt;
  233. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  234. &lt;span style="color:#008080;"&gt;We have the following statement from development regarding the fingerprint scan:&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
  235. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  236. &lt;span style="color:#008080;"&gt;&amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
  237. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  238. &lt;span style="color:#008080;"&gt;&amp;quot;The reason for this is that Traveler supports the Android Operating system, not specific phones. &amp;nbsp; The Android OS does not provide apis relating to figerprint s canners, which is why the fingerprint security is categorized as &amp;quot;unrestricted&amp;quot;. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
  239. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  240. &lt;span style="color:#008080;"&gt;&amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
  241. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  242. &lt;span style="color:#008080;"&gt;When we initially tested this support, we found that even when &amp;quot;unrestricted&amp;quot; was &amp;nbsp;specified, the Android OS was still reporting the device as non-compliant when the fingerprint scanner was enabled. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
  243. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  244. &lt;span style="color:#008080;"&gt;After a lengthy correspondence with Samsung on t his issue, we found that they require that we set the minimum password length to 0 in our calls to the Android OS. &amp;nbsp;We modified our code to set the minimum password length to 0 when the setting was &amp;quot;unrestricted&amp;quot; and at that point, the Samsung device reported compliant with the fingerprint scanner was enabled. &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
  245. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  246. &lt;span style="color:#008080;"&gt;&amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
  247. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  248. &lt;span style="color:#008080;"&gt;Traveler will not have a specific setting for fingerprint or any other biometric u ntil the Android OS provides explicit support for it. The device passcode settings &amp;nbsp;are direct passthrough to the Operating System. &amp;quot; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
  249. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  250. &lt;span style="color:#008080;"&gt;&amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
  251. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  252. &lt;span style="color:#008080;"&gt;Samsung modified the api (few months ago) and Marshmallow Android offers new APIs to let authenticate users by using their fingerprint http://developer.android.com/about/versions/marshmallow/android-6.0.html&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
  253. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  254. &lt;span style="color:#008080;"&gt;&amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
  255. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  256. &lt;span style="color:#008080;"&gt;In light of this we created Enhancement request for them to be added (this is internal, so you won&amp;#39;t be able to open it but I&amp;#39;m posting it so it&amp;#39;s present in the text of the PMR and others would be able to see it): &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
  257. &lt;div style="margin-left: 40px;"&gt;
  258. &lt;span style="color:#008080;"&gt;https://apps.na.collabserv.com/blogs/W7439f0bc8fed_4971_932a_eb1d33e05c5b/entry/Enhancement_request_Fingerprint_setting_Marshmallow_API?lang=en_us &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp; &amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;
  259. &lt;p&gt;
  260. Hopefully a new version will be release soon to provide the functionality.&lt;/p&gt;
