September? News, news, news ….

The beginning of September is really hectic. HCL is rolling out news with us starting with Beta V11, FP3 for V10.0.1, Verse On-Premises 1.0.8 and Domino App Dev Pack 1.0.2.

In addition, we are still faced with various problems related to the products transer from IBM to HCL.

The positive thing about all of this is that something is happening and HCL has been keeping the promised deadlines and news ahead of time. We are still waiting for the Beta Nomad for Android. But I think we have enough toys.

Here is a few links to the latest news:

  • HCL Domino V11 portfolio beta simply register here
  • Notes/Domino 10.0.1 Fix Pack 3 is here
  • HCL Verse On-Premises version 1.0.8 is here

Domino 10 – Forcing a full database replication

Since Domino 10.0 you can use to force a full database replication when replicas of a database get out of sync.

This method is an alternative to clearing the database replication history (File – Replication – History)

Clearing the database replication history

For simplicity, you can use the command (on Domino console):
Replicate < server > < database > -F

Forcing a full database replication
