Please note this is a living document and is being updated.

Note: A plus symbol (+) before the SPR number indicates a fix for a regression bug. A regression bug is an issue that was introduced in a Maintenance Release that did not exist in previous releases of that code stream. For example, a bug that appears in Release 11.0.1 but did not exist in Release 11.0 is a regression.


  • +SPR# ASHEBK9BZF – Fixed an issue with Web Site Rules where a content-disposition custom header with value of inline was being working correctly (value of inline was not being honored). This regression was introduced in 10.0
  • +SPR# ASHEBL3HDZ – Fixed an issue where you need to add a Notes resource directory (for example: C:\Program Files (x86)\HCL\Notes\res\C ) in the Path system variable in Windows when you call a database agent from an external program. This regression was introduced in 11.0.
  • SPR# BRISBKTL3F – Fixed a seldom seen issue where a before new mail agent would cause delivery to fail, with the error Router: Agent ‘BeforeNewMail’ error: Notes error: Field is too large (32K) or View’s column & selection formulas are too large.
  • +SPR# BSPRBJ3R74 – Fixed a crash in Domino on startup in RestoreSCRState – OSFileGetToken. This regression was introduced in 10.0.
  • SPR# BSPRBK5NP8 – DAOS – Improved error messages being logged to console for DAOS Tier 2 errors. Prior to this fix a generic message “DAOS Tier 2 storage services are not available. : Program library not loaded. Required .DLL missing or could not load.” was being given.
  • +SPR# CDUTBLARPL – Fixed an issue in Verse and iNotes where re-authentication was broken when deletion logging was enabled on a mail database. This regression was introduced in 10.0
  • SPR# CSAHBJGQHP – Fixes some deadlocks during the trash cleanup of documents contain file attachments stored in DAOS.
  • +SPR# CSIOBKPHDX – Fixed a problem where the CKEditor stopped working in web app after upgraded to 10.0. This regression was introduced in 10.0.
  • +SPR# DANOBKPSFC – DAOS – Fixed a bug where DAOS resync could fail to report errors from scanning .nlo files in the local filesystem (Tier 1)
  • SPR# DANOBKXVE5 – When cluster symmetry is enabled and a person and all replicas of the person’s mail file are deleted using the Administration client, Domino could fail to delete all replicas.
  • SPR# HPRHBLBDJQ – Fixed a Server Panic issue
  • SPR# JBUDBHMT89 – Dirsync will now successfully remove documents as configuration options change, such as filter definition.
  • SPR# JBUDBKTS97 – Introduced ENABLE_NEW_FTLEXWORD_HANDLING ini to toggle lexical word handling. DISABLE_ATTACHMENT_SEARCH_BY_FILENAMES no longer affects the lexical word processing.
  • SPR# JCALBEYQGU – Prior to this fix, HCL Domino Install always sets domino as a service even before it was selected not ‘Always start Domino at startup’ and it still stays service even after the OS is rebooted.
  • +SPR# JKEYBEYGPQ – Messages sent to external SMTP systems that returned a failed Delivery Status Notification used to retain the original sent message id in $MessageID. Now the original sent message id is in the item SMTPSavedMsgID, even for the case fixed in this SPR, where a mime before new mail agent is defined. This regression was introduced in 10.01
  • SPR# JMANBHNKQM – If Cluster Symmetry (Repair) is enabled, when a person was deleted via the Delete Person dialog in the Admin client with the option “Delete mail replicas on all other servers”, if the option “Delete user from the Domino Directory immediately” was also selected, Repair would recreate the mail file from a cluster mate after it was deleted. This is now fixed so that all replicas of the mail file in the cluster are deleted. A workaround prior to the fix being installed is to not check the “Delete user from the Domino Directory immediately” option.
  • SPR# JPAIBHQL4X – LDAP – Fixed a crash in LAP task – “Memory following pool block has been destroyed”

  • SPR# MOBNBLZREW – We now log help information when a Condensed Directory Catalog exists with an error and doesn’t complete due to very large “member” fields.
  • +SPR# MRONBGZKYM – Fix a problem which caused the Domino IMAP server to return “BAD unknown command” instead of “NO LOGIN The database has not been enabled for IMAP” when a user tries to open their mail file via an IMAP client. This would occur if the mail database was not IMAP enabled and the server configuration did not have “Enable IMAP during login” enabled. This regression was introduced in 11.0.

Components no longer included in HCL Domino 11

With the release of HCL Domino V11, some components that were in previous releases were also removed. In V11 you will no longer find:

  • XWork Server
  • Console mode installation on Windows
  • Express® mode installation on Windows
  • GUI mode installation on AIX and Linux
  • Remote installation on AIX and Linux
  • XSP mode (Application Service Provider) This is NOT related to XPages, which remains in the product.
  • DOTS (Domino OSGi Tasklet Service)

HCL Domino V11 – Authenticating web users against the Notes ID passwords in the ID vault

Starting with Domino V11, you can configure Domino to use an ID vault password to authenticate web users accessing the server.

If enabled uses the Domino server to authenticate users to HCL Verse, HCL iNotes with their Notes ID and passwords stored in IDVault. With this feature, users only can to remember their password in the file ID.

This feature is ignored for authentication of the following users:

  • Notes client users
  • Web-only users without Notes IDs
  • Users who authenticate via SAML federated identity authentication

How to configure?

  • Create or edit a Configuration document in the Domino directory. (Configuration – Servers – Configurations)
  • Open the Security tab
  • In the Internet Password Verification section, select one of the following options

If some web users with registered Notes IDs do not have IDs in the vault or if you are unsure if they do, use “Check vault first, then directory“. If Notes IDs are not found in the vault, Domino will use internet passwords in Domino directory Person documents to authenticate the users.


What's new in the final release – Domino server V11

I continue with the previous article about news in final release, where I summarized news in Notes client and iNotes V11. However, most features require a Domino V11 server. Here is a summary of news for the Domino server.

Domino V11

  • New Domino licensing model
    (Active license management is not available for production use licenses at this time. Therefore, configuring a FlexNet license server for Domino 11.0.0 is not required. Details of when HCL will enable active license management will be announced.)
  • Product rebranding
    (References to IBMhave been rebranded to HCL for the Notes and Domino product family. Strings with IBM that were visible in normal use of the product are changed to HCL.
    Occurrences of IBM in the following locations are changed to HCL:
    – Logos and copyright information
    – Error messages
    – Dialog boxes
    – Templates and databases that ship with Domino and Notes 11
    – Registry path in Windows™ platform

    Not all IBM strings are replaced. The following occurrences of IBM strings remain and have not been changed:
    – The following directories or paths that if changed could require customers to alter their applications: IBM_TECHNICAL_SUPPORT, IBM_ID_VAULT, IBM_Credstore, IBMDomino.sym, ibmditar.css, C:\Program Files\IBM\Domino\data\domino\js\dojo-1.5.4\ibm
    – notes.ini configuration parameters that contain IBM strings
    – Proprietary IBM strings such as IBM operating systems, servers, compilers.
    – LDAP attributes
    – COM objects with IBM as the namespace
  • New InstallAnywhere platform for Domino
    (Flexera InstallAnywhere 2018 is the underlying install platform used as of HCL Domino 11. InstallAnywhere offers the following install modes:
    – Graphic User Interface (GUI) mode, available only on Windows
    – Console mode, available only on AIX and Linux
    – Silent install mode, available on all platforms
  • Directory Sync
    (Directory Sync allows you to sync people and group data from an external LDAP directory into the Domino directory. Currently data from Active Directory can be synced. )
  • DAOS tier2 storage
    (Domino Attachment Object Service (DAOS) tier 2 storage enables you to use an S3-compatible storage service to store older attachment objects that haven’t been accessed within a specified number of days. This feature allows you to reduce the amount of data stored on Domino servers that use DAOS. It can also improve the performance of any incremental file backups done for DAOS. An S3-compatible storage service uses the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Simple Storage Service (S3) API)
  • New Java Runtime Environment
    (The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) that comes with HCL Domino® 11 and HCL Domino Designer 11 is now Eclipse OpenJ9 that is provided through AdoptOpenJDK.
    The JRE component versions are:
    – openjdk version “1.8.0_222”
    – OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_222-b10)
    – Eclipse OpenJ9 VM
  • IBM GSKit cryptographic libraries replaced with the OpenSSL equivalents
    (On all HCL Notes and Domino® platforms, OpenSSL 1.1.1a cryptographic libraries replace the IBM GSKit libraries provided in earlier releases)
  • Limiting ID file downloads from the ID vault is disabled for SAML federated login
    (When SAML Notes federated login or SAML Web federated login is the authentication method used to extract HCL Notes ID files from the ID vault, the value for the ID Vault policy setting Allow automatic ID downloads is now ignored. (This setting is in the ID vault tab of a Security Settings policy document).
    The setting is ignored because SAML authentication requires unrestricted download access to ID files from the vault.
  • Authenticating web users against the Notes ID passwords in the ID vault
    (You can configure HCL Domino® to use the password in an ID vault to authenticate web users that access the server)

What’s coming in Notes V11 almost before release?

After the Engage conference (May 2019), I wrote an article about what to expect in the new version of Domino / Notes. I wrote that there will be a beta version in Q3 / 19 and so on. So what is the current situation?

HCL fulfilled its promises and released at the end of October perhaps the latest Domino / Notes beta 2 including Traveler and Sametime V11 beta.

At the same time, HCL announced the first major release of V11 on December 4, so it is more than likely that we will be able to install the final version by the end of the year.

Are there any changes from the May information? Here is a selection of some important things:

  • Cleaner, modernized UI.
    The overall appearance of Notes has changed in this release.
  • Minimalistic menus
    Less used actions and options are hidden until you need them. Drop-down and expanding menus allow you to retain all previous capabilities without cluttering the workspace.
  • Simplified forms
    Forms within Notes Calendar and Contacts are organized in a basic, user friendly layout.
  • Domino licensing
    Starting with HCL Domino 11, each Domino server must be configured to connect to a FlexNet licensing server. The licensing server is used to validate that a Domino server is in compliance with the licensing requirements.
  • Inbox action bar
    There are fewer icons above the inbox on the action bar. Further options can be viewed when you select and hover over an email
  • Multiple Dictionaries Support
    You can now spell check any language that your HCL Notes client supports within an email or document.
  • Meetings > 24 Hour Support
    Meetings that are longer than 24 hours are now supported by the HCL Notes Calendar
  • Export As PDF
  • TLS 1.2 support for SAML
    Notes and Embedded Sametime now support TLS 1.2 with Notes’ Federated login (SAML).
  • 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 Mac OS 10.15 (Catalina) release.
  • Moving folders prompt
    Users are now prompted to confirm when a mail folder is moved
  • Synched release schedule
    Starting with this release, Sametime® and Notes® follow the same release schedule.
  • New HCL Notes 11 theme
    HCL Notes has a new theme for Mail, Calendar, Contacts, and Notebook. After the previous blue, there has been a change that is much more pleasant after a long period of use.

I did not get any more because I had to go back home to work. The journey by car was long enough and I had time to think about what it was like for 2 days in HCL Factory.

It was a great day with lots of interesting information, and it seems that HCL really means “Domino family” seriously.

I’m glad I could be there to meet a bunch of new people.
I’m glad I do not have to end after 25 years of working with Domino / Notes.

Thanks for the invitation, thanks to the all members HCL team.
You do not stop!

I look forward to May – engage.ug and sutol.cz conference
