Lotus Notes 8.5 3 For Windows 8.1
The following tables provide an overview of the operating system levels and applications that are supported by the Data Protection for HCL Domino. See the notes after the table for important information. For details about software prerequisites and requirements (including supported editions), and the necessary components, including hardware requirements click the several levels.
The following tables show the first build (minimum requirement) in each code branch of Symantec Mail Security for Domino (SMSDOM) for each combination of operating system and IBM Lotus Domino release.NOTE: IBM has discontinued Technical Support for the IBM Domino 7.0.x and older. For updated information on the IBM Domino's lifecycle, please review Support Lifecycle site: -01.ibm.com/software/lotus/support/lifecycle/32-bit SMS for Domino ProductsThe 32-bit version of SMSDOM and SMSDOM-MPE must be installed on 32-bit Domino. 32-bit Domino can be installed on either a 32-bit or 64bit OS. Therefore in the chart below all of the Domino versions are 32bit but the OSs can be 32bit or 64bit. Also please note that there are three 32-bit products offered by Symantec called SMSDOM MPE 3.2, SMSDOM 7.5, and SMSDOM 8.
There are several classes of notes, including design notes and document notes. Design notes are created and modified with the Domino Designer client, and represent programmable elements, such as the GUI layout of forms for displaying and editing data, or formulas and scripts for manipulating data. Document notes represent user data, and are created and modified with the Notes client, via a web browser, via mail routing and delivery, or via programmed code.
Document notes can have parent-child relationships, but Notes should not be considered a hierarchical database in the classic sense of information management systems. Notes databases are also not relational, although there is a SQL driver that can be used with Notes, and it does have some features that can be used to develop applications that mimic relational features. Notes does not support atomic transactions, and its file locking is rudimentary. Notes is a document-oriented database (document-based, schema-less, loosely structured) with support for rich content and powerful indexing facilities. This structure closely mimics paper-based work flows that Notes is typically used to automate.
Items represent the content of a note. Every item has a name, a type, and may have some flags set. A note can have more than one item with the same name. Item types include Number, Number List, Text, Text List, Date-Time, Date-Time List, and Rich Text. Flags are used for managing attributes associated with the item, such as read or write security. Items in design notes represent the programmed elements of a database. For example, the layout of an entry form is stored in the rich text Body item within a form design note. This means that the design of the database can replicate to users' desktops just like the data itself, making it extremely easy to deploy updated applications.
Items in document notes represent user-entered or computed data. An item named "Form" in a document note can be used to bind a document to a form design note, which directs the Notes client to merge the content of the document note items with the GUI information and code represented in the given form design note for display and editing purposes. However, other methods can be used to override this binding of a document to a form note. The resulting loose binding of documents to design information is one of the cornerstones of the power of Notes. Traditional database developers used to working with rigidly enforced schemas, on the other hand, may consider the power of this feature to be a double-edged sword.
The HCL Domino server or the Domino client store their configuration in their own databases / application files (*.nsf). No relevant configuration settings are saved in the Windows Registry if the operating system is Windows. Some other configuration options (primary the start configuration) is stored in the notes.ini (there are currently over 2000 known options available).
Lotus Notes 8.0 (released in 2007) became the first version to employ a dedicated user-experience team, resulting in changes in the IBM Notes client experience in the primary and new notes user interface. This new interface runs in the open source Eclipse Framework, which is a project started by IBM, opening up more application development opportunities through the use of Eclipse plug-ins. The new interface provides many new user interface features and the ability to include user-selected applications/applets in small panes in the interface. Lotus Notes 8.0 also included a new email interface / design to match the new Lotus Notes 8.0 eclipse based interface. Eclipse is a Java framework and allows IBM to port Notes to other platforms rapidly. An issue with Eclipse and therefore Notes 8.0 is the applications start-up and user-interaction speed. Lotus Notes 8.5 sped up the application and the increase in general specification of PCs means this is less of an issue.
The option is correctly set under preferences, but somehow Notes prepends the working directory (/opt/ibm/lotus/notes) in front of the URL before* calling the OS. Then the OS receives something that looks like a file (e.g. /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/http:/www.ibm.com) and decides to use the default file manager on it (which fails, as one might expect).
All problems solved so far, but when starting with /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes-wrapper i get the error:/opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes: error while loading shared libraries: libgnomeprint-2-2.so.0: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
HiWhen I try to run Lotus Notes using the command /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes-wrapper, I get the following error:/opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes: error while loading shared libraries: libgnomevfs-2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
2) If I run without sudo: /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notesThen I only get the first error message: /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/notes: error while loading shared libraries: libart_lgpl_2.so.2: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64Nothing else happens after that
Today i would be discussing about installing Lotus notes 8.5.3 using MSI technology. In my earlier posts i shared with you some knowledge about how to profile this application. Today i would be uncovering its MSI aspect.
Lotus notes, an email client can be installed either using a silent install by calling its setup.exe or by installing its msi and then installing a patch over it. Well here i would be discussing its MSI aspect
The command line argument that i made use of for installing lotus notes was as follows SETMULTIUSER=1 MULTIUSERBASEDIR=!Userprofile!\Appdata\Roaming MULTIUSERCOMMONDIR=!SystemDrive!\Notes\common CITRIX=1 PRELOADNOTES=1From the variables, it would be clear by now , that i m setting MULTIUSER value to 1, multiuser directory to AppData\Roaming and its commondir to C:\Notes \Common. The property CITRIX=1 will make this application useful for citrix deployment too. property PRELOADNOTES=1 ,preloads a portion of the Notes APIs and subsystem, a portion of the Java JVM, and some NSF databases that are used immediately at the time of the Notes client startup
The reason, these properties were passed in command line and not as a property in MSI was, when you pass these though property table or setproperty custom action, the application fails to install. Oh yes! another point worth mentioning is , when install notes , do not attempt to install it from a UNC path or network location. If you try to do so, you will be presented with the following error message
now when installing the lotus notes msi, you would also require the MST along with it. You can create with any tool of your choice, be it orca, installshield tuner, wise. As soon as you create mst, you need to make a change to feature table. Open the MSI and MST in orcaGo to Feature table. Look for a feature by the name of Preloader, change its install level to 1. Rest apply all the standards in the MST. If there is a need to install patch that comes along with the lotus notes, I would recommend to go for a silent install of the patch, because if you try installing the patch via an admin command prompt, it would present you with an error saying that the path of fix.ini is incorrect. This happens because the installer thinks that patch installation is being run from systemfolder location, whereas in actual it is not. Hence, its better to go for a silent install using the following command line
Hope this would help others in packaging lotus notes. Do let me know incase, anyone has some issues. I would be more than happy to help others, as this application took toll of my most nights
I installed lotus notes 8.5.2 on 10.10 netbook using unity desktop. At first lotus notes showed its menu. Suddenly (not sure if I did something) the menu disappeared. When I start up using gnome desktop, the menu still is there. Unity shows only the file menu for notes with the only entry for closing notes.
we have lotus notes database(.nsf) size of 94GB and working fine on opening and searching for documents from LN client. But recently one of the database exceeded 64 GB and when we try to open the database from notes client, it alerting "Database exceeded maximum limit". So we have created a replica of db in the current version (Lotus notes 8.5) and after that database is opening fine from client. We have few more database which were nearing to size 64 GB (might have created in older version of notes).
