IBM Notes Traveler for Android client explicit warning against use of HTTP (CVE-2014-6130)

    Kenio Carvalho  31 October 2014 16:33:05
    The IBM Notes Traveler client for Android devices allows the end user to connect to their Traveler server over HTTPS (using SSL) or the open HTTP standard. At present, the client application does not explicitly warn the end user if the Traveler administrator has chosen the insecure HTTP variant as the transport medium.

        Supportability Q&A about IBM Notes and OS X 10.10.x

        Kenio Carvalho  18 October 2014 07:46:11


        This technote contains questions and answers pertaining to installing and running IBM Notes on Apple's OS X 10.10.x Yosemite.

        You only need to download Notes 9.0.1, as mentioned, if you will install a fresh yosemite.

        I upgraded my Mavericks yesterday and only need to install the legacy Apple java. My Notes was on the FP2 level.

          SRVE0190E on WebSphere V8.0.0.9

          Kenio Carvalho  16 October 2014 20:09:39
          Last monday a customer reports the error SRVE0190E and 404 errors appearing sometimes for some users. After reading lots of trace the error was caused by the following:

          The customer has one IBM HTTP Server in front of two cells. One cell is WAS Cluster and another is Portal Cluster.  The websphere pluging-cfg.xml is merged and then deployed on the HTTP Server.

          Reading the trace i discovered that the customer has two applications with the same context root installed.  

          Solution:  Change the context root of one application.

            Web Application Bridge is not installed by default when you migrate from Portal V7.0

            Kenio Carvalho  24 September 2014 17:38:57
            Last month i migrate a from Portal V7.0.2 to V8.0.1.

            Today i receive a task to integrate some applications using WAB (Web Application Bridge).

            When i launch the Administration interface the Virtual Application Manager portlet was not there.

            I search for a solution but at the end i opened a PMR.

            This kind of problem was reported and to fix just run the following tasks:

            ConfigEngine.sh action-create-library-wp.vwat.engine
            ConfigEngine.sh action-create-resource-environment-provider-wp.vwat.engine
            ConfigEngine.sh action-create-resource-environment-provider-custom-property-wp.vwat.engine
            ConfigEngine.sh action-deploy-portlets-admin-wp.vwat.manager
            ConfigEngine.sh action-create-ear-wp.vwat.servlet/ear
            ConfigEngine.sh action-deploy-portlets-wp.vwat.webdock

            Restart the Portal Server

              X Window and MAC

              Kenio Carvalho  24 September 2014 12:11:12
              I am using my MAC book as principal machine (i was a Windows user). Every day i need a ssh connection with servers to do admin tasks.

              On windows i use Mobaxterm the best tool i used to do things using ssh.  My favorite feature is X Window to use graphical interfaces via x11 forward.

              There is no Mobaxterm for Mac, so i installed XQuartz  http://xquartz.macosforge.org/landing/.

              To use the X Window start your connection (after setup XQuartz) using ssh -X  user@server

                An issue has been identified that affects Notes Traveler calendar entries on some Apple devices that are upgraded to iOS 8.

                Kenio Carvalho  19 September 2014 17:29:34
                In some cases, after an Apple device is upgraded to iOS 8, some or all of the Calendar entries in the Notes Traveler account no longer appear on the device. It is important to note that although the Calendar entries do not appear on the device, the entries are NOT permanently lost. The missing entries, in fact, still exist in the user's Domino mail file, and they can be resynced to the device via this workaround



                  Using WGET to download software from IBM

                  Kenio Carvalho  18 September 2014 15:35:03
                  A few months ago I heard that it was possible to download files from Passport advantage using wget on a linux terminal.
                  Never needed to test this until yesterday when I needed to upload 3 GB of files  to a server (home office to datacenter) that had no possibility of using a browser to download from Passport Advantage.

                  What I did was the following:

                  1 - Log on passport advantage (using my laptop) and looked for the desired software
                  2 - I changed the download option for https
                  3 - When I started downloading the file I copied the URL
                  4 - The URL is complex like this one: (i changed some characteres)

                  https://serverfromibm/sdfdl/v2/fulfill/CITI7BP/Xa.2/Xb.ll8xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/Xc.CITI7BP/Do_9.0.1_LP_AIX_Lix_BP.tar/Xd./Xf.lPr.D1VK/Xg.7745353/Xi./XY.sm/XZ.HqgSzFYH2FWAhesMjfomXW-uLQk/Do_9.0.1_LP_AIX_Lix_BP.tar#anchor

                  I type wget on linux terminal and pasted the url
                  The download was done smoothly.
