“Top 20” Fix List IBM Domino/Notes 10.0/10.0.1

IBM has released a list “top 20” Fix List Domino/Notes 10.

Notes/Domino 10.0/10.0.1 contains fixes for approximately 2000 known issues. As IBM said: “This list was compiled to identify the issues that most significantly impact customers”.

Official announcement and IBM Fix List – Link

Client :

  • SPR #RREN8G2N6L – Fixed a printing defect that caused the printed output to be different thant what was being displayed on screen for a MIME email message. For example, if hide details was selected to suppress the to/cc list, that info would print out. With this fix, it will remain suppressed. 
  • SPR #SJCN8K6KYX – Vertical Scroll bars will now appear in mail preferences Mail signature rich text dialog if typing in a longer signature. This will allow the user to scroll up and down making it easier to edit the signature
  • SPR #BHUY7PEEQ9 – Notes 10.0 will now spellcheck across multiple languages on windows in a single document. This feature is not available on the mac. This feature is on by default and can be disabled with a new ini SPELL_DISABLE_MULTIPLE_LANG_CHECK=1
  • SPR #CSMHAG9M5K – Fixed numerous display issues with Notes client on 4k displays
  • SPR #NKAH9RWEK9 – Fixed an issue with blank/generic icons appearing for shortcut link attachments. On Windows, a user can create a shortcut link to a file. This shortcut has the icon of the associated program. Prior to this fix, if the shortcut was attached in a rich text field in Notes, the icon would be a generic icon. This was a regression introduced in 9.0.
  • SPR #TYITA548NJ – Fixed an issue in iNotes related to auto-save that would lead to either duplicate attachments being sent or multiple attachments beginning with ATTxxx in the attachment name. These duplicate attachments would show up in sent or draft mail.
  • SPR #ZKCO8ZZ9ZU – Increased the block sender list by 10x. Now if you choose the action for [Deliver Sender’s mail to Junk] you can add 10 times as many senders/users to the list
  • SPR #MWID7LWRJ7 – Fixed an issue where the ini ShowPreviewCollapsedInitially=1 would not honor all cases of collapsing the preview pane in the mail inbox. Now this ini can be pushed out via policy and handle all cases for primary user or mail file delegate
  • SPR #MPAA6PQCHK – Added support for the Notes client to send mail directly to an SMTP server that supports STARTTLS. Prior to this fix, sending SMTP outbound mail directly to the internet using Notes Client with an SSL enabled account yielded an SSL handshake error. Both client and template code were modified for this fix

Server:

  • SPR #MJTM9R2P8P – Fixed a potential crash involving both Domino and Traveler when a bad document was encountered
  • SPR #MIAS99HP2S – Fixed a potential Domino Server hang that could occur with databases that were <ODS 51
  • SPR #LMAN7QPHSU – Fixed mail policy Sender Colors to accept multiple values. Before this fix, the policy would not work if it contained more than one sender name.
  • SPR #KLIN5GHRZR – Fixed an LDAP performance issue. The Domino LDAP server has slow response time when search filters contain attributes that are telephone numbers. This fix enables LDAP queries to use FT index for locating the telephonenumber attribute. It can be enabled by adding LDAPUseFTSearchTelephone=1 to the INI file. One caveat is that the search must match the telephone number exactly, including parentheses, dashes, or other non-numeric characters.
  • SPR #TOCL9DVN4K – Prior to this fix, if the 64k limit of password reset authorities was exceeded, password authorities would be removed. After this fix, an error is displayed instead, and no password reset authorities are removed.
  • SPR #MZHO7PM4CC – Fixed an issue that would prevent mail routing to occur If mail.box was being repaired when router is started.
  • SPR #HSPR9DKAAT – Fixed a potential Domino Server crash in database code
  • SPR #DCOE7X7L3W – Corrected an issue that would show an incorrect warning that would not go away after running Fixup. The message was, WARNING: Residual form bucket bitmap optimization failed validation test. Please run fixup on this database.
  • SPR #JEKY5ARNPA – Soft deletions are now maintained when creating a new replica. This fix is off by default and can be enabled with the new ini REPL_SOFT_DELETES. To enable the fix, set REPL_SOFT_DELETES=1.
  • SPR #MLAT9FTTE4 – Fixed a policy issue in pubnames.ntf which would prevent the discover page from being suppressed on Notes client

How to publish Domino 10 statistics to New Relic

IBM Domino 10.0 you can set up Domino to publish Domino statistics to an external monitoring service via New Relic .

You can publish Domino statistics to New Relic, a third-party, web-based monitoring application. New Relic allows you to visually monitor statistics in real time on multiple Domino servers from one dashboard.

This statistics are reported through a New Relic plugin called DominoStats.
Statistics are published once a minute and are retained for 24 hours.
The Domino Stats Plugin New Relic is FREE with limited features.

What you need to do in this case:

  • create a New Relic account
  • add a setting to the server notes.ini file to enable the server to report its statistics.

How to enable Domino statistics monitoring in New Relic :

  • Create an account at www.newrelic.com.
  • Log in to your account.
  • Click the arrow at the top, right of the New Relic window and select Account Settings.
  • Copy your license key in the License key field.
  • On each Domino server that you want to report statistics to New Relic add the following notes.ini setting: NEWRELIC_LICENSE_KEY=
  • Wait a few minutes for the initial metrics to be published.
  • Open the DominoStats plugin, click DominoStats in APM/Plugins

A summary page that you see when you open the plugin reports key monitoring statistics for each server that you have configured to report to New Relic.

What’s new in IBM Domino 10.0

A few tips for Administrator Domino 10.0

  • ODS 53 supports larger databases and folders. The maximum size of databases allowed in IBM Domino 10 has increased to 256 GB; previously it was 64 GB.
  • ODS 52 is the default ODS level. he default On-Disk Structure (ODS) for databases is now ODS 52, the ODS for IBM Domino and Notes 9.0.1. Unless there is a Create_Rx_Databases=1 notes.ini setting on server or client that specifies another ODS (for example, Create_R10_Databases=1).
  • Publishing statistics to external services. A Domino server is preconfigured to publish Domino statistics to the New Relic service using the New Relic Plugin API.
  • Dynamic indexing of high-usage views. IBM Domino now dynamically assigns dedicated view indexing threads to views with content that is frequently updated. This feature keeps busy views up-to-date and enables them to be opened more quickly.
  • Symmetrical clusters. Symmetrical clusters is a feature that ensures that Notes databases remain identical across all servers in a cluster. Any missing or damaged databases are repaired (replaced) with good copies from a donor cluster member.
  • Improved streaming cluster replication during server restarts. IBM Domino 10 implements streaming cluster replication improvements that help preserve the state of the SCR queue after Domino server restarts.
  • New way to synchronize database replicas. IBM Domino 10 provides a new argument for the Replicate command, -F, to force a full database replication when replicas of a database get out of sync. The replication occurs on the side and allows users to continue to see replication updates during the full replication.
  • Document deletion logging. A new compact task option is available to enable logging of data about deleted documents in databases that you specify. The data is logged to entries in deletion log files added to the IBM_TECHNICAL_SUPPORT directory on a server. For example, you can log when documents are deleted from mail files to help troubleshoot if users report missing documents.
  • Automatic dead mail processing. Dead mail occurs when the router can’t deliver or transfer a message to the intended recipient or a non-delivery report to the sender. Prior to Domino 10, if administrators wanted to retry sending dead mail, they did it manually. Also, dead mail stayed in mail.box until an administrator deleted it. In Domino 10, administrators can configure the router to automatically retry delivery of dead mail and if unsuccessful delete it from mail.box after a specified number of retry attempts.
