Domino-docker explained – Part 4 : The domino_container script  

By Martijn de Jong | 10/22/21 7:22 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

In the previous part, I showed how you can simply start and stop and open the Domino console with the domino_container command. This piece of script is responsible for interacting with the Domino container in a way where the average administrator doesn’t even have to realise that Domino is running inside a container. There are many more functions in this script that will help you manage your Domino server and in this part I will discuss them.

This year, I presented a session at CollabSphere that was essentially a whirlwind overview of the tools I use and have written to go with my large client project to do automated builds and CI/CD servers. Thanks to the Zoom-based nature of the conference, the video is already up and available:

TOTP Needs an ID file in the ID Vault to Work, What if some are Missing?  

By Keith Brooks | 10/20/21 5:06 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Yes, of course, a properly managed Domino environment should have been using the ID Vault for several years now. But we all have customers who, for one reason, or another, just never did it, or worse, think they did, but never checked it worked. And then we hear from them out of the blue to help get TOTP installed and update their environment. No big deal, right? Set up the ID Vault, and when people log in to their Notes client, their ID files get sent to the ID Vault. Newly registered people are also automatically added to the ID Vault. But what do you do about people who solely use webmail/iNotes? How do you get their IDs into the ID Vault?

CertMgr Domino 12.0.1 List all currently used TLS Credentials  

By Daniel Nashed | 10/19/21 3:00 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Matteo Bisi

Starting with Domino 12.0.1 Beta 2 you can show all currently used TLS Credentials on a server. This helps to understand which TLS Credentials this particular user is currently using and reflects what is in the TLS Cache of each servertask.

Domino V12.0.1 One-Touch supports Micro CA and PEM/P12/KYR import  

By Daniel Nashed | 10/11/21 7:16 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

"Automation" and "secure by default" are two key aspects in many features in Domino V12. Beta 2 introduces a new Micro CA and also the new import functionality is exposed via One-Touch setup. Domino One-touch setup supports the same operations which are added in the cerstore.nsf UI. This also includes importing TLS Credentials exportable!

Flexnet download via curl  

By Daniel Nashed | 10/8/21 9:32 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Matteo Bisi

Flexnet doesn't offer options to automatically download software via curl or other tools directly. But if you are authenticated already in the portal and got a download-link, this download link works for a while and could be used on another machine.

Changing Some, But Not All, User's Mail Templates

Domino-docker explained – Part 3 : Running your first Domino server in a container  

By Martijn de Jong | 9/30/21 10:56 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

In part 2 we created a Domino container image. Now we want to start the image. Of course, we could just use docker run <options> <imagename>, but with the scripts from the Domino Docker project, there’s a much easier option. In this part, I’ll show you what to do to make running, restarting and stopping images super easy.

Domino-docker explained – Part 2 : Creating your first Domino image  

By Martijn de Jong | 9/28/21 1:54 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

n the previous part, I looked at reasons why you might want to run your Domino server inside a container. In this part, I’m going to show how to create your first Domino image. We have to take one step back though, as since a couple of years, HCL provides their own docker image for Domino. So why would you want to create your own image? My experience is that it leads to a better image and it gives options to add your own tooling to the image. Nevertheless, using HCL’s image is an option and the script also provides an option to build on top of the standard HCl image. My advice: create your own.

Domino-docker explained – Part 1: Why run Domino inside a container?  

By Martijn de Jong | 9/28/21 1:51 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

In November 2018, Thomas Hampel (at that time still working for IBM) created the domino-docker github repository as an open source initiative to create scripts that would make it easier to run Domino inside a container. Even though the repository was started by IBM, the work was done by the community with most of the work done by one man in particular: Daniel Nashed. He contributed his Linux start/stop scripts to the project, but also wrote scripts to completely automate the build of the images. While working with the scripts, I realised two things: Daniel has built fantastic scripts to both build and run Domino containers With so much functionality added, the project didn’t manage to document this new functionality in detail With help from Daniel, I managed to build my own customised container and I experienced in the past months all the benefits from running Domino as a container, combined with the scripts from the Domino Docker project. However, if this project wants to get the attention it deserves, the documentation needs to be fixed and this is exactly what I’ll try to do in a series of 6 articles:

Troubleshooting Domino Let’s Encrypt/ACME HTTP-01 challenges  

By Daniel Nashed | 9/27/21 3:43 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

CertMgr ACME challenges to confirm a web-server identity require an inbound HTTP connection on port 80 on a server pointing to the DNS entry of the server requesting a new certificate. Surprisingly this causes a lot of issues. So I added a troubleshooting document to the GitHub projectAIX64 ../archive?openview&title=AIX64&type=cat&cat=AIX64 AIX64 Tag: Ansible ../archive?openview&title=Ansible&type=cat&cat=A

How I solved the problem Sametime integration with iNotes / Verse  

By Ales Lichtenberg | 9/27/21 3:42 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

I recently worked on one integration of Sametime V 11.6 with iNotes and Verse (2.2.0). I configured everything as usual, but I still couldn’t get Sametime up and running with iNotes and Verse. Although this has been described in the documentation, discussion forums or on various blogs, I would like to remind you once again that certain parameters need to be used.
