HCL Notes/Domino v12.0.1

22. Dezember 2021 Posted by Gerda Marx

HCL liefert mal wieder vor Weihnachten eine neue Domino Version aus. Dieses Mal ist es v12.0.1, auf die sich HCL-Kunden freuen können. Außerdem wurden auch HCL Notes und HCL Traveler in der v12.0.1 freigegeben.

Die neue Version kann im Download Portal von HCL heruntergeladen werden. Die schnellste Option die neue HCL Domino Version zu installieren ist lt. HCL den vorherigen Client zu deinstallieren und die v12.0.1 im selben Datenverzeichnis zu installieren. Da Domino abwärtskompatibel sind, können Kunden bspw. mit einer v9.0.x ohne Probleme die neue Version einspielen. Dies ist natürlich gerade für Kunden mit v9.0.x oder v10.0.x sehr interessant, da der Support ab dem. 01.01.2022 nur noch eingeschränkt zur Verfügung steht.

Falls Sie Domino v12.0.1 erst testen möchten, sollten Sie sich an Ihren HCL Vertriebsmitarbeiter wenden, damit Sie eine Einzel-Lizenz hierfür erhalten.

In v12.0.1 von Domino sind vor allem viele Sicherheitsfunktionen verbessert worden, wie bspw. MFA, Verbesserungen bei der Sicherungs- und Wiederherstellungsfunktionalität oder eine Verbesserung der Berechtigungsverfolgung.

In Why You Need to Be on the Latest Version of Domino (v12.0.1) erfahren Sie, warum Sie die neueste Version nutzen sollten.

Viele Fragen zur neuen Version wurden bereits von HCL im Domino Blog beantwortet.

Bei HCL Notes v12.0.1 dürfen sich die Kunden auf die Domino Online Meeting Integration freuen. Damit können Sie einen dynamischen Link zu einer Besprechung für GoToMeeting, Teams, WebEx, Zoom und Sametime generieren. Auf HCL.com finden Sie alle Neuheiten zu HCL Notes 12.0.1

Der Traveler 12.0.1 bietet u.a. die Möglichkeit, Daten von einer IBM DB2 zu einer MySQL-Instanz zu migrieren

Sie benötigen Unterstützung? hedersoft hat über 25 Jahre Notes/Domino Erfahrung. Wenn Sie Ihre Anwendungen für die Zukunft bereit machen möchten, sprechen Sie uns an.

Wir wünschen allen ein frohes Weihnachtsfest und einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr. Bleiben Sie gesund!

How to Create Application Icons in Domino 12.0.1

23. November 2021 Posted by Mary Elizabeth Miller

In the Notes and Domino release of version 12.0.1 (coming soon!), we have updated the ability to display 64 x 64 px application icons in the workspace. You will have the ability to upload icon files that are larger than that, but on workspace they will display as 64 x 64 px. If you have older application icons that were created with the 32 x 32px icon specification that existed prior to this release, then those will still display at the smaller size. The Notes Domino design and development teams are working to update existing template icons for HCL provided templates; you will also see these icons updated in the v12.0.1 release.

If you have seen some of the new template icons, you might be thinking, “How can I update my application icons to look like that?” Follow along with the tutorial below or watch the webinar replay on how to update your Notes application icons. The default application icons are available to download from the forum here.

For applications using HCL-provided template such as mail, calendar, rooms and resources, and directory, etc., these will automatically update when the user opens these applications. For the custom applications that you have created for your clients or company, these icon files will need to be updated and deployed in Domino Designer by the owner of the application.

Examples of HCL provided template icons:

Guide to Creating Application Icons 

The following documentation explains how to design new application icons that match the style of the HCL Notes app icons but are tailored to the purpose of your application.

There are two different approaches you can take, review the following documentation, and decide which approach is best for you.

Option 1 

Use one of the provided icons and upload to Domino Designer. In this package, there are some default app icons that you can use out of the box and there is no design needed. These icons map to some of the templates that are provided with Domino such as Teamroom, Discussion, and Document Library. For these, all you will need to do is download the icon you would like from the folder titled “Option 1 – default Icons,” and upload it to designer.

Available Default Icons:

Option 2 

Note: For this option you will need to have access to an image-editing tool, such as:     

  • Microsoft Paint: Installed on Windows Machine 
  • GIMP: A free software available for Windows and Mac 
  • Adobe Photoshop: I would suggest to only use this one if you already have it installed on your machine  

You can create an application icon using a foreground and background image provided in this package.

Within this package there are many foreground and background images to select from. Select the ones that best match the intention of the application. For example, if the application is focused on scheduling and uses calendar views, then you might want to choose one of the foreground icons that represents events or time. While for the background color you might want to choose a color that is also represented in the color of the application.

Example Application Icons:

GIMP: Step by step 

The following instructions describe how to create these icons in GIMP 2.10. Other image editing software would have similar steps.

Step 1 

In the zip file provided you will see a folder titled Option 2 – Foreground and Background > Background Images. Within this folder select the background image that you would like to use. Then select a foreground image from the folder Option 2 – Foreground and Background > Foreground Images.

Step 2 

Create a new document and set the image size to 64 x 64px.

Step 3 

Drag or import the background image from the downloaded zip file. The background image was created specifically for a 64 x 64px background. Be sure that the background image is centered on the artboard.

Step 4

Follow the same steps for placing the foreground image. Be sure that the order of the layers has the foreground image on top of the background image.

Step 5 

If the background of the artboard is not transparent, then delete the white background that was created by default.

Step 6 

Export the image as a PNG file and upload the image to the Application Icon section in Domino Designer.

New Tech Updates for HCL Domino, Notes, Traveler, Verse, and Connections

18. August 2021 Posted by Thomas Hampel

While you may have been on a summer vacation, we at HCL have been busy improving our products! Here is a small overview of what happened in the last couple of weeks and what you can expect soon from your most favorite collaboration platform. 

Group 3 Language Translations for Notes and Domino 11.0.1 

Good news for many of our customers: HCL Notes 11.0.1 is now available in more languages.  

You asked for it (DOMINO-I-831 and NTS-I-842) – In addition to the 16 languages the Notes client was already providing, we are delivering the following language translations: 

  • Danish 
  • Finnish 
  • Norwegian
  • Catalan
  • Hebrew
  • Hungarian
  • Slovenian
  • Thai
  • Turkish 

Install kits for the HCL Notes Standard and Basic Client V11.0.1 in those languages can be found at our License and Download Portal under the Notes/Domino version 11.0.1.  

Of course, we are also providing the Multilingual User Interface (MUI) kit for those languages, as well as the Install Shield Tuner files to customize your installation. 

Group 3 language translations for the Notes Client v12 are being worked on.

Level up for our Domino Rest API 

In June, we started the beta program for our new Domino Rest API. Now in August, it’s time for the next iteration. Shifting gears to Beta 2 will introduce several improvements customers were asking for: 

  • ODATA support was added for reading/writing from/to Domino, which is especially of interest for e.g., Salesforce customers who want to store data in Domino
  • A new Domino server add-in task is provided to start/stop/reload the Domino Rest APIs and show its status from the Domino server console
  • An installer is now allowing to install the Domino Rest APIs on a Domino Linux server. Previously only a docker container was provided 

For more details, about the new features please refer to the changelog of this project. 

Please note: The Domino Rest APIs are still in beta — the first eGA release is scheduled to be shipping with Domino v12.0.1 later this year. Customers interested in joining the beta program can find the required files available for download at our License and Download Portal

HCL Traveler 12.0 updated with Fix Pack 1 

Fix Pack 1 for HCL Traveler 12.0 is also available for download at our License and Download Portal. This update is especially recommended for customers using Android devices due to a bug fix that is addressing an error connecting to Firebird Cloud Messaging servers via proxy. (Ref: KB0092130 ). It also fixes a bug that caused Traveler to crash (Ref. KB0091495 ) and addresses two other issues that customers have reported. 

For more details on HCL Traveler 12.0.0 Fix Pack 1 please refer to this technote.

Housekeeping for Notes/Domino v10.0.1 

For customers running on HCL Domino 10.0.1 we have shipped Fix Pack 7 in mid-July. This fix pack is a collection of 136 low-risk, high-impact fixes to help customers safely avoid known issues, e.g., resolving several UI issues for Notes Clients on MacOS Big Sur and on Windows 10.  

It also provides 25 fixes for the Domino server, resolves 33 problems that customers have reported with iNotes, and is addressing about 20 issues around development and programmability.  

HCL strongly recommends that customers running Notes/Domino 10.0.1 apply this Fix Pack since it addresses a small percentage of defects that impact the broadest set of customers. 

For details on the individual SPR’s addressed in this fix pack please refer to this article or check the Fix List database.

New features for Domino AppDev pack 

Version 1.0.9 of the Domino AppDev pack was released end of June is providing Node.js and Java developers with new features such as: 

  • Ability to export individual design elements and other non-data documents into DXL 
  • Retrieve the list of files in a given directory on the Domino server 
  • Work with Access Control Lists and Roles in Domino databases, allowing to get / update / replace entries in the ACL. 

Furthermore, the user interface improvements for the Identity and Access Management (IAM) server have been updated and is providing tools to leverage the new Domino 12 Certificate Store for Proton and domino-db clients.  

More information can be found in the What’s New section of the Domino AppDev Pack.

What’s Next? 

In the next few weeks, we have lined up the following releases and updates for you: 

HCL Domino C-API Toolkit v12.0 is going to be released end of August, so developers, partners and third-party vendors can upgrade their products to leverage the latest compiler and take benefit from new capabilities of Domino 12 

HCL Verse 2.2.0 will be providing new features like an updated Sametime integration as requested here, and the ability to restore documents from an archive. Furthermore, this release is adding support for Connections 6.5 and 7, provides an enhanced preferences page to manage your availability and other calendar settings and provides updates to freetime search and is improving the PWA capabilities.

We are also looking forward starting the first beta release of HCL Domino 12.0.1 later this month and have a new release of HCL Nomad 1.0.1 waiting for you in early September. However, details for those two are subject of a future blog post, so please stay tuned for more!

Customer Success Case Study for Nolte Küchen, GmbH

27. Mai 2021 Posted by Karl Sand

A new customer success story was recently released by panagenda and was subsequently published by the HCL marketing team. The story outlines the dramatic improvements of the HCL Notes client management and improved upgrade processes for a German manufacturing company, Nolte Küchen. Below is a quote from their team lead who manages the Notes and Domino environment for the company. 

“Without MarvelClient, a Notes upgrade would be almost impossible for us. It would take more than 12 months for all clients, or we might not even be able to complete it at all.” 

Dr. Dirk Kirchhoff, Nolte Küchen

The company has been a long-time Domino shop, first deploying the collaboration and communication platform in 1997. However, by 2010, they had a sprawling set of inconsistent client deployments across the organization. This was causing issues with IT support troubleshooting and making subsequent client upgrades a nightmare. After deploying the MarvelClient solution the IT group was able to successfully identify the non-standard HCL Notes client configurations on all computers and quickly implement a fixup campaign to push out a common install. 

Helpdesk calls were reduced, and client performance improved for all users. As stated by their team ead, MarvelClient suddenly provided us with full visibility into the current Notes client environment and highlighted the potential problems cause by a mixed bag of inconsistent installs.” 

To download a copy of the customer case study from panagendaclick here

The case study has also been published on the HCL website  for your reference. 

Enabling a Smooth and Speedy HCL Notes Client Upgrade 

For those customers who have not upgraded their HCL Notes clients in years, and are subsequently out of practice with the processes and procedures to ensure a smooth experience for their end users, we can help. The MarvelClient Upgrade solution empowers organizations to optimize their HCL Notes client management and standardize all user installs with a consistent configuration. If any client settings or modifications are made through user error, they will be rectified and reset to the standard, supported configurations on the next restart of the HCL Notes client. These automated restore functions enable any organization to ensure a consistent environment for their users and reduce the number of IT support calls from HCL Notes client installation issues.

The panagenda company is currently running a promotion to help customers with their Notes Client upgrades in preparation for the release of HCL Notes and Domino v12.  If you are interested in finding out more about the MarvelClient Upgrade solution and how it can help streamline your client upgrade processes, please visit the panagenda promotion page online

Updates Regarding HCL Notes v11 on Apple Big Sur

16. November 2020 Posted by Agnes Ng

Apple has officially released macOS Big Sur, its latest operating system, on Nov 12. We are aware that customers are unable to run the HCL Notes v11/11.0.1 client on a Mac after upgrading to Big Sur.

Various fixes have been applied to allow HCL Notes to run on Big Sur in the past few months. We introduced FP6 IF1 a few weeks ago for 10.0.1 which is supported on Big Sur GA. HCL Notes v11.0.1 FP2 is currently being tested by the HCL development team.

We understand the urgency of this issue and addressing it is our top priority. The fix pack for v11.0.1 (1101 FP2) is targeted to be released within a week. An announcement will be made when the fix pack is available on Flexnet.

You can read our tech note here.

Stay tuned, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

HCL Domino Notes Client 11 New Feature

8. Oktober 2020 Posted by Ren Mark Tapang

Last January 2020, we launched a new version of Domino Notes Client (V11) which contains cleaner and modernized UI, minimalist menus, simplified forms and user experience improvements for Mail.  

Under Modernized UI Notes Client V11 appearance has changed the new color scheme and design. Notes Client UI focused on Simplicity so that it will be more user friendly. 

Also, for user experience Improvements, we focused on Progressive disclosure to show the advanced features and actions as the user needs them. 

Finally, we focused on Notes Client performance to be faster and more stable to increase effectiveness of the user. 

In addition to the aforementioned enhancements, new features are also made available in response to the feedbacks and requests from our customers. 

What’s New in Notes v 11 

  • Export to PDF – You can now export emails and documents to PDF from the HCL Notes Client.

  • 24+ hour meeting support – Meetings that are longer than 24 hours are now supported by the HCL Notes® Calendar.

  • Three Click Support – Three click support adds a level of security when a user opens an attachment within an email.

  • Network resiliency improvements – When there is no network connection (when the cable is unplugged or the wireless is unavailable), the Notes client responds with an error message. Previously, the client would freeze before timing out – now, the error message appears right away.

  • Synched release schedule – Starting with this release, Sametime and Notes follow the same release schedule.

  • TLS 1.2 support for SAML – Notes and Embedded Sametime now support TLS 1.2 with Notes Federated login (SAML). This enhancement is a result of upgrading the XULRunner browser within Notes to the latest version (which supports TLS 1.2).

  • MAC 64-bit uninstaller – The uninstaller provided for Notes 11 on Mac is now 64-bit. This change is made because Apple will no longer support a 32-bit uninstaller as of its upcoming Mac OS 10.15 (Catalina) release. The 64-bit uninstaller can be used to uninstall Notes 11 running on Mac OS 10.15, 10.14, and 10.13.

  • Moving folders prompt – Users are now prompted to confirm when a mail folder is moved: 

Domino Notes Client is committed to a quarterly release cycle and the latest release is now here. Domino Notes Client customers can download v11.0.1 on FlexNet today!

Domino Document Deletion Logging: How to Solve for Missing Documents

19. August 2020 Posted by Jessie Jeffrey Matias

As a Domino Administrator you might have been asked by your users, “Where is this specific email!?” It has been a long-standing issue with older versions of Domino when an important document goes missing in an application used by multiple users, with no way to identify who/what/when/how a certain document was deletedFear no moreDomino document deletion logging is now a feature that was made available starting from Domino v10. You now have the ability to explain what might happen to the document they are looking for. 

So, how can you implement it? It’s as simple as running compact task on a database, literally! A new compact task option is available to enable logging of data about deleted documents in databases that you specify. Here are the key requirements for such feature. 

  1. Use Domino v10 and above.
  2. Have transaction logging enabled.
  3. Run compact task against the database that you want to monitor 

load compact <database path> -dl on “<comma separated list of items>” 

where <database path> is a specific database or a directory of databases, relative to the data directory, for example, mail or discussion.nsf. 

 <comma separated list of items> is a list of fields to show in the logs to help you identify deleted documents. The fields must be one of these types: Text, Text_List, RFC822_Text, or Time. Suggested fields for mail documents are SubjectSendToFrom, and DeliveredDate. If you have custom fields on a document, you can use them as well. 

The data is logged to a deletion log file called delete.logwhich is located under the server Data directory, IBM_TECHNICAL_SUPPORT folder. When documents are deleted from a database, entries are added to that file. 

When the server is restarted, a new deletion log file is created. Old deletion log files are renamed to delete_<servername>_yyyy_mm_dd@hh_mm_ss.log; for example: delete_Server1\Renovations_2020_01_10@06_28_45.log 

Deleting a document from a database adds an entry to the current deletion log file with the following data. This data is provided in a CSV-compatible format. 

Data in deletion log entry 

More information 

Date and time of the document deletion   
Database from which the document was deleted.  Relative to the data directory 
Replica ID of the database  Helps you find multiple replicas of a database in the log if the database name is not the same on all servers. 
Process that did the deletion  For example: 

  • server 
  • dbmt 
  • replica 
Name of the server or person who deleted the document   
Type of document deletion  Can be: 

  • SOFT — document is in the trash 
  • HARD — Stub delete (for example when the document is deleted from the trash) 
  • RESTORE (document restored after a SOFT delete) 
Class of document deleted  Specified as one of the following hex values: 

  • 0001 (Document – NOTE_CLASS_DATA) 
  • 0002 (About Database Document – NOTE_CLASS_INFO) 
  • 0004 (Form – NOTE_CLASS_FORM) 
UNID  Unique document identifier across replicas 
Items  Up to four field values in a deleted document to help you identify it. Specified when you enable deletion logging. Although you can specify more than four field values, only the first four that are found are shown in the log entry. Each item has three parts: the item name, the length of the item value, and the first 400 characters of the item value. 

 Then if you no longer need to monitor the document deletion on the database, run the following command: load compact <database path> -dl off 

Here’s some things to keep in mind when using this feature. 

  • When entering the compact command, no spaces inside the comma separated list of items.  

load compact mail/admin.nsf -dl on “SendTo,From,DeliveredDate” — Correct 

load compact mail/admin.nsf -dl on “SendTo, From, DeliveredDate”— Incorrect 

  • More than 4 comma separated items can be put in when entering the command. However, only 4 comma separated list of items will be logged in the deletion log file.
