IBM iSeries NetServer – Mapping Drives and Accessing via green screen

I’ve only been working with IBM i for a little over 6 years now but in that time I’ve grown to appreciate the durability, reliability, and complexity of the system.

Notes 9.0.1 Fix Pack 1 Install Issues

I ran into an error, right at the end of the installer, several times over the last few weeks where I would try to upgrade a user’s Notes client from 9.0.1 to 9.0.1FP1. I attended an Open Mic webcast the other day (which I highly recommend anyone attend these – they are very informative) and…

Set up SSL using a third-party CA on IBM Domino

I recently wrote a blog post concerning Renewing SSL Cert on IBM iSeries. Now it’s time to write one for Domino. Of course when your SSL certificate renews there is a good chance that there is more than one place it’s going to have to be updated. We had 4-6 systems that required the SSL…

Rolling out Notes 9.0.1 Client – Client Versions

I recently upgraded our Domino server to 9.0.1 (which went flawlessly) and I began pushing out the Notes 9.0.1 client to my users. We create several new users a month and I realized today that I forgot to change the registration policy, that we use for registering new users, to incorporate the mail9.ntf template. I needed…

Duplicate folders showing in the Notes & Traveler Move to Folder Option

So I ran into an interesting issue today with one of my users running Lotus Notes 8.5.3. It seems that the ‘Move to Folder’ option in Notes and Traveler was showing one of the users folders duplicated with the exact same name but in the Notes client it would only show one folder. The user…
