A customer of mine uses the solution from Crossware to apply signatures to outgoing mails. I am helping them in moving users from on-premises Domino to Smartcloud Notes. The Crossware solution works in an hybrid environment, where the mail is routed through the on-prem server, but for us it did not work. After contacting Crossware Support, they told me that the SMTP bug introduced in FP9 breaks the functionality of their solution.
I applied FP9 IF2 to the on-prem server and it fixed the issue.
IBM Docs 2.0 CR3 introduces a new feature, Track Change, that lets you see all the modification to the document made by other people who edited it.
To enable it, when editing a document go in the menu Team and select Track Change
You will see in the top right, next to the share button a new icon
Clicking on this you will see all the changes
Clicking on a person icon you will see only the changes made by that person
Click again on the person icon to see all the changes.
You can also see a short video on how to enable it on the Docs guru Martti Garden blog here
Thanks to my fellow IBM Champion Jan Krejcarek who alerted me of the availability of IF1 for VoP 1.0.2
This fix resolves the problem of the broken Notes links I mentioned in a previous post.
You can get the fix here
Thank you IBM for listening and reacting in a short time.
Seems that IBM is converting all the certifications into badges. I received another one for a certification I have. If this is so, I expect more 🙂
Social Connections 12 was another great event. Thanks to all the team for organizing it!
I gave a presentation on IBM Docs and BOX integration. Here it is.
Since I upgraded VOP to 1.0.2 all Notes links ( db links , view links and doc links) in a mail are shown as web links.
My friend and fellow IBM Champion Tim Clark made some tests after I told him of this, and he has found the same issues.
Hope IBM can look into this and fix it soon.
Every time there is a HotFix applied on top of a FixPack or Feature Pack, the installation of the new version of the FP fails. It says it found the wrong version. You have to uninstall the HotFix reverting back to the Base FP, then you can upgrade to the newest FP.
Recently I had installed on my server, and my customer’s server the HF238 for FP8 and I could not upgrade that to FP9; had to revert back to base FP8 before upgrading.
This is a nuisance, to say the least. Can someone from IBM Dev have a look into this and allow the installation of a FP on top of whatever version of the previous FP is there ?
Just received this:
Dear IBM Connections Orient Me Customer,
The IBM Support team is contacting you to inform you that a new update to Orient Me 6.0 is available. The recent release of Docker 17.06 has an incompatibility with IBM Spectrum Conductor for Containers Community Edition 1.1.0 which results in an install failure for Orient Me 188.8.131.52. The Orient Me development team has made available a new release of Orient Me (184.108.40.206) to address the install failure. The installation change is the only update in Orient Me 220.127.116.11. If you have already installed Orient Me 18.104.22.168 with Docker 17.03 then no action is required. Otherwise please download the latest version of Orient Me from Fix Central before deploying.
We apologize to any inconvenience that this might have caused you.
The IBM Support Team
The very excellent Ben Williams and Nico Meisenzahl have dug deeper in Orient Me and found ways to reduce the footprint.
See their blog posts here and here.
I now have Orient Me running with 4 cores. I understand this is not a supported configuration, not until IBM comes up with a way to downsize Orient Me to less than 8 cores, but is definitely a big step forward.
Thanks Ben and Nico !
