yet another Workspace

You might have heard of the «Project formerly known as Toscana» now being previewed at https://workspace.ibm.com/
and being part of the Watson family.

Well, apparently Workspace is the new «in-name» because WatchDox by BlackBerry has been rebranded and guess what name is being used? Exactly.. Welcome to «BlackBerry Workspaces».

Access, share, and manage your protected files on the go or on your laptop/PC with the new apps.

#IBMDomino 9.0.1 FP7 Interim Fix 1 addresses critical issues for Linux64 & zLinux64

As reported by Daniel Nashed and others, there have been issues with FP7 and some problems were only seen on Linux. IBM has released an IF1 to address the critical issues on Linux.

If you have installed FP7 on Linux and have not downgraded yet, I suggest you look into this alert.

Extract:

Interim Fix 1 for Domino 9.0.1 Fix Pack 7 is now available for download from Fix Central. This Interim Fix is available for only Linux64 and zLinux64, and it addresses critical issues affecting those platforms. The issues stem from a threading mismatch and can surface in Domino as problems with cluster replication as well as potentially other critical issues. These issues are tracked as SPR KBRNAEMPX2.

Fix for iNotes error after installing FP7 for Domino 9.0.1 coming soon

You might have heard about this issue

When an iNotes user opens their mail file on a Domino 9.0.1 Fix Pack 7 server, a “Formula Error” appears. This issue is known to occur on servers with non-English OS Regional Settings.

from different sources or maybe ran into it after installing FP7. Moments ago, IBM Support published an update to the technote mentioning that a fix is coming soon:

“by end of September at the latest”

IBM Support also documented three possible workarounds, from reverting back to a previous FP to changing regional settings or numbering format.

Good to see that the following has been fixed as we had some issues with clients crashing after a recent key rollover.
Fixes intermittent Domino Server and Notes Client crash when organization is doing a key rollover. Crash occurs on both client and server side when trying to connect.

and yes, this time the installation of the interim fix did not break my Notes client on the Mac.

Sametime March update

updated security bulletins from IBM

Two security bulletins have been updated today, they will give you a reason more to install IF 2 for IBM Notes 9.0.1 Fixpack 5 on Windows.

more details:

Security Bulletin: Vulnerability in MD5 Signature and Hash Algorithm affects IBM Notes
Security Bulletin: libpng related security vulnerabilities identified in IBM Notes

small update: installing the IBM Notes 64-bit 9.0.1 IF1 (for Mac) caused some issues.. I was not able to launch IBM Notes anymore, installing the IF1 again would launch an error that “the fix was only for the 64bit client” and therefore would not run. I ran the install for the 9.0.1 64-bit client again which fixed the problem and now the «About IBM Notes» shows:
Release 9.0.1 (64-bit) SHF619

FP/IF nightmare all over again or only a local issue?
