Installing and Configuring Domino 10.1 on CentOS 7

Category IBM Domino CentOS Linux Admin Articles Technical

Just in time for Engage!

Although sadly I won't be there

Since the official release of IBM Domino 10.0.1, I have been "chomping at the bit" wanting to release a set of instructions on how to install it on a Linux machine.

Domino 10 is by far the easiest and most hassle-free version I have ever installed on a Linux machine.

I have written an instructional document entitled Installing and Configuring Domino 10.0.1 on CentOS 7 Enterprise Linux. I hope it helps alleviate some of the fear and confusion with regards to using Linux as your Domino server platform. The document is aimed at YellowHeads (having some experience with Domino installations on Windows) who are thinking about stepping into the world of Linux. Even though it is aimed specifically at CentOS 7, the instructions should work for any RHEL or Debian-based (with some changes to handle DEB vs. RPM) linux version -although I must point out that the only supported Linux distributions are RHEL 7 and SLES 12.

Hope this helps!

Installing and Configuring IBM Domino 9 Social Edition on CentOS 6 Enterprise Linux

QuickImage Category IBM Domino CentOS Linux Admin Articles Technical Show-n-Tell Thursday

I realize it is been a while since I posted, I'm hoping this blast of content will make up for my absence.

Since the official release of IBM Notes and Domino 9.0 Social Edition a few weeks ago, I have been "chomping at the bit" wanting to release a set of instructions / videos on how to install it on a Linux machine.

During the beta program I had the opportunity to "play" with it quite a bit, and let me tell you this release is exceptionally good. It is also by far the easiest and most hassle-free version I have ever installed on a Linux machine -but there are still a few gotchas and watch-outs to be wary of.

I have written an instructional document entitled Installing and Configuring IBM Domino 9 Social Edition on CentOS 6 Enterprise Linux. I hope it helps alleviate some of the fear and confusion with regards to using Linux as your Domino server platform. The document is aimed at YellowHeads (having some experience with Domino installations on Windows) who are thinking about stepping into the world of Linux. The document is focused on 64 bit Linux, but calls out differences from 32 bit installations where necessary. Even though it is aimed specifically at CentOS 6, the instructions should work for any RHEL or Debian-based (with some changes to handle DEB vs. RPM) linux version -although I must point out that the only supported Linux distributions are RHEL 6 and SUSE 11.

I have also cut a series of 9 videos wherein I walk through the instructions step-by step and demonstrate how easy it really is to perform the installation. They are available on my YouTube channel, although I'm hoping I can talk David Leedy into including them on Notes In 9.

Hope this helps!

Saying Good-bye to another old friend

QuickImage Category Articles

Well, this is official:

The October issue was the last print issue of Lotus Advisor magazine.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank those who worked so hard on such a fine publication. I don't know if you realize what an important part of my professional life your magazine has been. It will be sorely missed.

Thank you all for a job well done.

Sad times, sad times indeed.

Fine-Tune Web User Access to Your IBM Lotus Domino Web Pages

QuickImage Category Articles

My latest article is available in the March 2006 issue of Lotus Advisor magazine.

In the article, I cover field harvesting, the Domino Rendering Engine, Domino Web site security, and how to support visually impaired users in a human user verification implementation. If you get the magazine, I hope you enjoy the article. If you don't subscribe, I strongly urge you to do so -it's a great resource.

HUV: Add Advanced Human User Verification to Your IBM Lotus Domino Web Pages

QuickImage Category Articles

Well, I'm home. I survived another Lotusphere. I'll cover my thoughts and stuff about that in another entry. This entry is to let you all know that my latest article is now in print.

The article focuses on HUV (Human User Verification) enhancements and is in the February 2006 issue of Lotus Advisor magazine. In the article, I explain how to add multiple image sets to your human user verification (HUV) efforts.

Let me know what you think.

Human User Verification Part 2

QuickImage Category Articles

I sent the (hopefully) final draft of my next article on Human User Verification in to my editor at Lotus Advisor magazine the other day. As of right now, we're looking at the January 2006 issue for this one; and targeting the February 2006 (Lotusphere) issue for the next in the series. Of course, schedules can (and often do) change, so I won't count on it actually being published until I have a copy in my hands.

Guess who's coming to Domino

QuickImage Category Articles
I just finished what should be my final edits for my next article, and have sent them off to my editor. I had been hoping to make the July Issue, but the hospital fun kind of blew my schedule. Lead times being what they are, this article should show up in the August issue.

I really enjoy writing, and I'm going to try to do a bunch more of it as time goes on. I've done quite a bit of other writing in the past, mostly courseware rewrites, new courseware, technical documentation & stuff. Any of you who have taken InfoImage, CelebraTech, or Workflow Studios Enterprise Solutions courses have probably used courseware I either wrote or revised. While I really enjoyed working on those things, writing for a magazine is rewarding in a different sort of way.

Courseware is something people have to read in order to get through a course. Magazine articles are something people want to read -and therein lies the difference.

Anyway, this latest article should be first of a 3-part series, and (depending on how much and what kind of feedback it gets) I may or may not turn it into a presentation.

Oh, and if you're wondering who the guy in the picture is, I'm not going to tell you. You'll just have to wait for the article (in which he bears an extremely important place) to come out. Bonus points if you can guess who he is before the article is published.
