    We all experienced that some customers moved tried to move away, and what sellers from Microsoft tell to customers.
    There were cases when dark side sales, promised smooth migration to oil companies, who work on platforms in sea, and due to failures some people even died due to inability to get quality documents and procedure documents.
    That particular customer pulled back migration.

    There is a consolidated version what you DONT know, and knowing that you might want to include this in contract to be on safe side, or may be just stay on greatest platform in the world

    Некоторые клиенты принимали опрометчивое решение о миграции с IBM Domino. Когда Sales люди из Microsoft говорили что все будет дешево и безболезненно, о многом они умолчали.
    По горькому опыту других клиентов, узнайте что именно Вам не сказали.

          Recovering file from Certificate Authority document

          Vladislav Tatarincev  28 January 2019 13:12:47
          In some cases you may overtake environment, and now always you have all passwords.
          If this is an ID VAULT, you may want to recreate it, if this is or OU you may have a bad day.

          There is a way to recover file from Certificate Authority document.
          If you are one of CA administrators, Certificate Authority document will contain encrypted (different name, so just rename it).

          In Password field you will see a random password for this which will be different from original

            Enabling 2Factor Authentication for IBM Verse on Prem/iNotes in less than 20 minutes

            Vladislav Tatarincev  23 January 2019 10:09:56

            2 Factor authentication is a security default nowadays. This feature is a must-have!
            There are several way to do 2FA, call some cloud API, install 2FA server. These scenarios are ok for some clients, and not ok for others.

            Solution that I want to describe is pretty simple and as result stable, and can be installed and configured under 20 minutes!

            It is based on DSAPI (Domino Security API) file, which is small DLL (Windows) or .so (Linux), that is loaded with Domino HTTP and small configuration database (our lovely NSF)

            Solution is able to send SMS codes via GSM Modem or Clickatell Cloud [cloud again ;) ], or use TOTP for example Google Authenticator. With TOTP you need nothing else than Domino.
            There is even a way to allow user to decide receive a SMS or use TOTP, or even sent it to alternative email like

            As always in enterprise, this solution has flexible and configurable settings for all customer needs.

            2FA also helps to be compliant with GDPR. GDPR Regula says " that in addition to login/password pair you should have additional security".  2FA perfectly covers this , since this is a security on top.

            Since I am big fan of monitoring, solutions allows to monitor 2FA statistics. If user's password is leaked to hackers and hacker fail on 2FA, SMSLogin.FailedLogins will start to grow. Since we monitor around 200-400 different aspects of Domino with Monitoring solution, one of our customers was able to detect account hack attempt. Hacker got password, but 2FA stopped from getting in.

            Description of solution can be found here.
    If you are IBM Partner and want to resell this solution to your clients, please contact us on this page.

            Video above shows that 2FA is installed under 20 min. User friendly Self Enrollment portal allows users to enable 2FA, while watching Redirect database.

              IBM Domino/Notes  10.0.1 are in Gold Candidate status. I think we are few weeks away from Web Posting state and availability.

              A lot of cool things will be available in 10.0.1, AutoUpdate of clients, built on Google AutoUpdate engine, as well I am looking forward new search engine that will be enabled by default Apache Tika. Search is one of great improvements of Notes 10.

              See 10.0.1 Status update here:

                If you have OS X users, make sure that have proper checkboxes set in Security settings


                IBM TDI/SDI tuning guide

                Vladislav Tatarincev  9 November 2018 11:29:30

                Many of us use TDI (Tivoli Directory integrator) or new name is IBM Security Directory integrator.
                On IBM Identity Management training where TDI (let me use old name) is also used, and we came across tuning of TDI.

                For large Connections environments tuning might be needed, great guide. Even from 2010, still a lot of valuable information.
