Panagenda MarvelClient starting manage HCL Nomad

Panagenda MarvelClient allows administrators to manage HCL Nomad clients by defining their own settings. MarvelClient is provided with all installations of HCL Nomad starting with version 1.0.4.

HCL has integrated MarvelClient into Nomad, their new Notes client for mobile devices. Manage Notes clients on tablets and phones right out of the box – for free!

MarvelClient allows administrators to:

  • Centrally manage every aspect of Nomad – including Recent Apps, local replicas, Location/Connection documents, and more – without end-user interaction.
  • Ensure Nomad clients are properly set up following initial installation. End-users can be productive immediately without having to think about settings or how to find their Notes applications.
  • Apply settings consistantly, making sure Nomad stays configured correctly – a simple restart of the app automatically fixes mis-configurations without the need for the help desk to get involved.
  • Continuously collect detailed information about all aspects of deployed Nomad installations, operating systems, and hardware to further administrative analytics.

Configuring MarvelClient on Nomad clients

MarvelClient does not require any manual configuration if there is a MarvelClient Config database at one of the default Domino paths.
Each time HCL Nomad is started, MarvelClient automatically applies any new configurations after the user login process.

Disabling MarvelClient on Nomad clients

MarvelClient on HCL Nomad can be disabled. When not in use a MarvelClient on your Domino server, MarvelClient will not perform actions to configure your HCL Nomad client. There is no need to disable MarvelClient.
If you are using MarvelClient and want to disable it for HCL Nomad, use one of the options:

  • If you use Desktop Policy Custom settings, set the notes.ini NOM_MC_DISABLE=1 parameter. This will disable the MarvelClient’s configurations from being applied to the Nomad client after the user enters their credentials during setup.
  • If you use an MDM in your mobile environment, navigate to HCL Nomad’s AppConfig definition to set the AppConfig variable enableMarvelClient to false.

  • SPR# JALAB6SRRH – If EnableThreeClicks ini is set to 1, user will be required to enter three clicks for opening attachments and URLs, as mandated by the EU. This option is off by default.
  • SPR# VRARB6GJCZ – Fixed a problem in the Notes client where Widgets would not work. This regression was introduced in 10.0.1 FP10.

  • SPR# KSOAB5MM66 – Fixed a problem with the Notes calendar where setting the body text to any proportionally spaced font then reopening the saved calendar entry would result in the body text having been changed toDefault Monospace font. This regression was introduced in 10.0.
  • SPR# SMEAB94AYW – Fixed a problem where the Notes client would hang when using a particular widget.
  • SPR# RGANBBABED – Fixed a problem in Xpages in the Mac Client where an error 500 page was being displayed when trying to launch an Xpage app. This regression was introduced in 10.0.1.

How to easy change internet password (iNotes)

Sometimes it happens that the user needs to change the Internet password most often to iNotes.

You can prepare an application, but if you need it really fast, just enter the URL for a Web application and add “?changepassword” after the database name at the end of the URL.

For example:
https://server.domain.com/mail/databasename.nsf?changepassword

In the “Change Password” screen, enter your old Internet password. Next enter a new password, and then confirm your new password.

Some keys in mail and calendar Notes client 10.0.1 FP2 are not working

Last week there was a problem when the Escape, CTRL + A keys have stopped working in applications mail and calendar ( Notes Client Eng 10.0.1 FP2, Windows 10) .
In other applications, these keys and their combinations worked correctly.
It was not possible to close documents by pressing the Esc key, I could not mark all documents with the Ctrl + A keys. I had to use Shift + Esc to close the document. In the Basic client (start via nlnotes.exe) everything worked correctly.

Workaround:
If I deleted the “Workspace” directory in the DATA directory and restarted the Notes client, everything started again working.
