Increase the productivity of Notes users with good Spam protection

    Kenio Carvalho  19 December 2014 08:46:08

    Email productivity is a hot topic  and several companies will launch new products including IBM with IBM Verse.

    But do not forget: Good spam protection is a important piece.

    Several months ago, in our company, i setup Lotus Protector for Mail Security.

    Before the setup, on mornings, we have a lot of spam and undesired messages do deal with.

    We loose lots of hours / month just cleaning the inbox.  

    Some important messages was deleted during this clean process.

    Using traveler on mornings was a nightmare.

    The life after Protector is very different, there is no inbox cleaning anymore and blocked messages is managed by the users using IBM Notes integrated with Protector

    Almost 90% of the hits are blocked, thousand of messages are blocked every day with zero false positive

      Today i setup an IBM HTTPServer on top of Red Hat 6 64bits . The command doesn´t work.

      Image:WCT will not start on Linux x64

      I found on the log some missing libs

      To solve the problem:

      yum install gtk2-engines.i686
      yum install libXtst.i686

        What are the more commonly seen file extensions used by IBM Notes?

        Kenio Carvalho  17 December 2014 08:27:01
        For a variety of purposes, such as Anti-virus exclusion or scripting, it may be necessary to know all or at least the majority of the file extensions that Notes uses. This document has a list and the purpose of some of the more commonly used ones.

        .box - Used for mail routing. Mail is stored either in the client's or server's before being routed to the recipient.
        .dic - User dictionary file (obsolete as of 8.5.x Standard if using the new spell check engine)
        .dll - Dynamic-link Library
        .dmp - Dump file, usually created during a crash.
        .exe - Executable file.
        .ft - Full Text Index
        .gif - Type of an image
        .hst - History file, Example fault_recovery.hst
        .id - A Notes/Domino ID file, belonging to a user, server, or a certifier ID
        .ini - Configuration settings file (INI = Initialize). These files are most commonly read at launch time.
        .jar - Java class package file
        .jpg - JPEG image
        .lck - A file which locks another. Usually you will see a file with its normal extension and another with .lck if the file is in use or locked for other reasons
        .lock - Same as .lck
        .log - Non-Eclipse log file. Usually used to troubleshoot core client issues (ones that would be seen in the Basic client, like console logs and NSD files). Eclipse logs are in .XML format.
        .nbf - Process table file
        .ncf - Files similar to databases but are not read by humans. Examples include ~editclp.ncf (Notes clip board file) and cluster.ncf (File which contains cluster information)
        .ndk - Another file similar to .ncf. Examples include Cache.NDK (Client cache) and Desktop8.ndk (Where workspace icons, some cached design elements among other things are stored)
        .nsf - Notes System File, a Notes/Domino database.
        .ntf - Notes Template file, a Notes/Domino template.
        .prefs - A preference file, commonly found in
        .properties - Similar to ini files but in the Eclipse side. Example,, a file read by rcplauncher.exe when Notes2.exe is run.
        .txt - A text file
        .xml - An XML file. Most commonly used for Eclipse logs (Found in Data/Workspace/Logs)

              How to solve db2 setup failure on Windows 2012

              Kenio Carvalho  1 December 2014 20:32:51
              Last week i was installing the db2 10 server on top of windows 2012.  The setup program was unable to install the .Net 3.5 framework.
              I try install the .Net 3.5 from Add Features menu but it´s did not work well.

              So my Windows Administrator do the following using the Windows 2012 dvd

              Dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth
              Dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /All  /LimitAccess /Source:E:\sources\sxs "E:" The "E:" is the dvd unity letter

                Update procedure for IBM Portal Server and WCM v8.0.0.1 will be changing.

                Kenio Carvalho  20 November 2014 20:40:01
                Previously, unless you used special parameters, running IBM Installation Manager to apply a cumulative fix would both update the Portal product files and simultaneously configure the Portal profile. With the new procedure, Installation Manager will now only update the product files, and you will be required to run a pair of separate commands to configure the profile. Before now, the additional commands were required in certain situations; now they will be required in all upgrade cases.
