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.
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.
After having much fun providing links to customers for other software downloads today I thought to share this list right away.
Thanks to @stevencpitcher for notifying us about the availability of FP6 for IBM Notes/Domino 9.0.1 and see Johnny Oldenburger’s post for a preliminary fix list description.
Here are the generated links to the Fix Central page:
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.
update: see Matteo’s blog for more information about the IBM Sametime 9 Rich Client Cumulative hotfix for March 2016 Sametime March update
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?
