    IBM Domino Mobile Apps - Native Notes Apps runing on iPad

     12 Oktober 2018 15:28:16
    A big innovation, which IBM showed on Tuesday at the IBM Notes Domino 10 Launch Event, are the IBM Domino Mobile Apps.

    This is a separate native iOS app, which can run classic "old school" Notes applications without any adjustments. Including the possibility to create local replicas on the iPad and to really work offline.  
    A preview version of the IBM Domino Mobile Apps can be expected at the end of this month.

    I will report more here as soon as we are allowed to publish detailed information about the functionality, the scope of functions and requirements.
    At the moment this appetiser should show what it looks like and what we can look forward to.

    Thx to Hagen Bauer from IBM for sharing the first hands on!

    If you misse the NSD Service after the upgrade to v10, don't panic. The upgrade worked like designed.
    NSD no longer available to be run as a service in Domino and Notes 10.0

    As of IBM Notes and Domino 10, Notes System Diagnostics (NSD) can no longer be installed and run as a Microsoft Windows service on Notes clients or Domino servers.  If you upgrade to release 10 from a previous release of a Domino server or Notes client that ran NSD as a service, the NSD service is uninstalled.
    If you run NSD as a service in Notes or Domino 9.x, for reliability, best practice is to uninstall it. For information, see the section Uninstalling the NSD service in this topic in the Domino 9.0.1 documentation in Knowledge Center.

    Yesterday IBM released IBM Traveler 10 (Build 201809171646_20) in addition to Notes Domino 10.

    Image:IBM Traveler 10 aka is available

    IBM Traveler 10 is more a maintenance release with some new features, but primarily a continued release with fixes.

    Please note that Traveler 10 does not require Domino 10, but Domino 9.0.1 FP8 is sufficient.

    IBM Traveler requires Domino 9.0.1.x (or later) on Linux, Windows and IBMi platforms.   IBM Traveler requires Domino 10.0.x or later on AIX platforms.

    IBM Traveler 10.0 can be used to update any previous Traveler environment running Domino 9.0.1.x or Domino 10.0.0.x without requiring a Domino upgrade.  Of course it is always recommended to keep Domino at the latest level.

    Traveler 10 should therefore be treated like a version, that will probably not be available any more.

    But to the new features and the fixlist:

    What's New

    ·        New Traveler Administration APIs added to obtain push status information.  
                See 360-320-1844 for details.
    ·        Traveler statistics monitoring via Domino 10.0 integration with external monitoring services.
    ·        Added support for AIX 7.2 with Domino 10.0.x.
    ·        Added support for CentOS 7.x with Domino 10.0.x.
    ·        Traveler tell command "pmr" renamed to "support" and allows case number as argument by default.
    ·        Traveler installer is now 64 bit.  Therefore, it is no longer required to install 32 bit runtime libraries when installing Traveler on a 64 bit OS.
    ·        With Domino 10.0.x, the separate IBM Mail Server Add-on (IMSA) installer for Microsoft Outlook (IMSMO) support is no longer needed.  
               Simply use the Traveler server installer.  See /​ for details.
    Database Schema Update:

    IBM Traveler 10.0 includes a database schema update for MS SQL Server deployments.

    IBM published a new Technote today, regarding issues with Traveler and iOS 12 devices, when HTTP Basic Authentification is not properly configured

    Image:IBM Technote: Apple iOS 12 Mail, Calendar and Contacts fail to sync if HTTP Basic Authentication is not properly configured

    Apple iOS 12 Mail, Calendar and Contacts fail to sync if HTTP Basic Authentication is not properly configured

    Flashes (Alerts)


    Starting with Apple iOS 12, native Mail, Calendar and Contacts applications fail to sync if HTTP Basic Authentication is not properly configured.


    Starting with Apple iOS 12, native Mail, Calendar and Contacts applications fail to sync if HTTP Basic Authentication is not properly configured.

    Prior to Apple iOS 12, the device would send the HTTP Authorization with the user's credentials on the first request.  As long as the credentials were correct, the device would not get challenged for credentials and it would not matter if the challenge was an HTTP 401 response (correct) or not (such as an HTTP 200  form login HTML response).  

    But starting with Apple iOS 12, the device no longer sends the HTTP Authorization header on the initial request which means that it will always get a challenge response for the user's credentials; if this challenge is an HTTP 401 (basic authentication), the devices should continue to work, but if it is some other sort of challenge (such as an HTTP 200 with a form), the devices will be unable to connect to sync.

    IBM Traveler has always documented that HTTP Basic Authentication is required (/  
    Prior to Apple iOS 12, even improperly configured servers would allow the devices to sync because of the credentials being supplied without requiring a challenge.  But with the change on Apple iOS 12, properly configured HTTP Basic Authentication truly is required or the Apple iOS 12 devices running the native applications will be unable to sync.

    Must read: HCL - Iris is back again

    John Curtis of HCL has published a wonderful blog post, which answers some questions for me and confirms my opinion, what went wrong at IBM regarding Notes Domino and the ICS products in the last years.

    The longer article should be read by everyone to understand how HCL ticks and which team got together again.

    Image:Must read: HCL - Iris is back again

    The post makes me optimistic for the future and my previous experiences with HCL are very positive. So much already as feedback from the participation in the Betas and the discussions around the HCL Factory Tour.

    Iris is back and HCL brings new life, new ideas, regained freedoms and very important engagement into the products (Notes, Domino, Sametime, IBM Mobile Connect, On-Premises) which are neglected by IBM management during the last years.

    I could already see and touch some upcoming things (unfortunately I'm not allowed to tell you more about this yet) and I only say one thing about it: Wonderful - A dream comes true

    They're baaack!

    Many thanks in any case to John Curtis for his view of things and the courage to post this.

    Starting with iOS 11.3 in the spring of this year Apple already created the possibility to control which third party apps (keyword: WhatsApp) can access the managed company contacts of the ActiveSync account via MDM restrictions.
    This was done via the Managed OpenIn restrictions. These can be used to control whether an unmanaged app can access the content of a managed app or account.

    See also my blog post: ios-11.3-update-regarding-contact-containisation.htm

    Apple released an updated Configuration Profiles documentation yesterday, which contains two new restrictions, among other iOS 12 extensions, that allows additional control to access contacts, when Managed OpenIn restrictions are being set to false.


    Optional. If set to true, managed apps can write contacts to unmanaged contacts accounts.

    Defaults to false.

    If allowOpenFromManagedToUnmanaged is true, this restriction has no effect.
    A payload that sets this to true must be installed via MDM
    Availability: Available only in iOS 12.0 and later.



    Optional. Supervised only. If set to true, unmanaged apps can read from managed contacts accounts.

    Defaults to false.

    If allowOpenFromManagedToUnmanaged is true, this restriction has no effect.
    A payload that sets this to true must be installed via MDM.
    Availability: Available only in iOS 12.0 and later.
