Web SSO woes

We are about to implement a webmail server in a remote site. This site has a newly installed mail server cluster. One on the LAN and one in the DMZ to serve webmail/Internet replication.

I had previously setup the Web SSO fields in the server document for the machine that is sitting out in the DMZ. I added the server name to the Web SSO for LptaToken document. We already have this in place in a couple of locations, so we’ve proved the concept and know it works.

I placed the domlog.nsf database that I wanted on the server.

Once all that was in place, I tried accessing the server’s URL successfully directly and logged into a test mailbox without problem.

Now time to test the Web SSO. Read the rest of this entry »

Folder is larger than supported


I received an email/phone call/IM about a super-VIP user who’s mailbox in South America had a problem.

This user travels frequently, has a 23GB mailbox, and refuses to carry a laptop. He travels from his Swiss office to Hong Kong, Singapore, and South America.

When he arrives in Argentina, he expects his replica to be up-to-date without problems. The issue is that the database is 23GB and the comm links to Argentina are very slow, so sometimes, replication delay can be up to 2 or 4 hours.

What I suggested that we do is to create his mailbox on the clustered servers in Argentina and then get the Swiss and Argetina local IT staff to coordinate with us every time he is going to travel so that we can change his home mail server. This will mean that mail will not need to replicate to the Argentina server from Switzerland, through the hubs in Hong Kong before he will receive it in his Inbox. Read the rest of this entry »

Skipping message because ReadyToSweep

Yesterday was a rough day being a Domino mail server admin.

First, let me explain our environment. Most of our company is on Domino and Notes 6.5.1.-6 (mostly Notes 6.5.4).

There is one division that refuses to move to Notes because they love outlook, and their main excuse is that there is the 100 mail rule limitation of Notes. They actually use email as a system like I’ve never seen. They manage a fleet of ships, and each ships sends different kinds of messages, these messages are sent to groups that are nested several times, so many many people receive them. Some people need them for one reason or another. These messages also go into a linux application server and are search able via a web interface.

So basically, they cannot live without having sometimes 200 mail rules. They are pushing electronic mail to the boundaries. I’m sure there is a better way for them to do all of this, but who has the time to pitch a better idea to them, especially when they have no budget. Read the rest of this entry »
