Domino on CentOS/RHEL compatible Linux - Timezone issues

Wednesday, May 17, 2023 at 7:54 PM UTC
Backstory With a new customer server we stumbled upon a strange behaviour using our low-code platform Aveedo we never saw before. We created the server at Hetzner using the Rocky 9 base installation. Rocky is binary compatible with RHEL and should be used in favour of CentOS in general as it is newer and still maintained. Domino installs and runs fine on Rocky. The version of choice was 12.0.2 [...] 

The next level

As always I am late to the party when it comes to new device adoptions as I like to settle the first impression, study reviews and watch videos about them. This is no difference with the Apple Watch Ultra which was released in late 2022 as an additional option to the normal Apple Watch models, i.e. the SE and the S8. I didn't wear a watch for about 20 years since I got my first Apple Watch [...]

"Trial version" message in HCL Nomad Web

Thursday, March 9, 2023 at 8:40 PM UTC
Today I created a new Docker image for my test server to run the latest version of HCL Nomad Web for Domino. I always use the community script to build the image. Everything worked flawlessly. When I tried to check the new version I ran into a problem though: Is it just me? HCL Nomad Web 1.0.7 on #dominoforever 12.0.2 — Oliver Busse (@zeromancer1972) March 9, [...] 

Error 404 - Item Not Found Exception after upgrade to Domino 12.0.2

Wednesday, February 1, 2023 at 4:05 PM UTC
When 12.0.2 came out, we immediately tried the new release and also set up a new Lab server with this version (in our case running in a container). For a customer we also set up a dev environment using our application platform Aveedo where we are creating a brand new CRM system. Very soon we faced the problem, that pages were not loaded properly (404 error) at random occurrence. A normal reload mo [...] 

OpenNTF Repair Café - behind the scenes

Friday, January 20, 2023 at 10:00 PM UTC
January 2023 is almost over now already and we as OpenNTF are very happy that our new get-together idea was adopted very well. We had an awesome first session for devs and others will follow, so go and check out the dates here. Personally, I had a really great time producing the trailer video for this new offer to have it advertised properly where I learned a ton of new stuff using various apps [...] 

HCL Nomad Web + German locale

Monday, January 9, 2023 at 12:59 PM UTC
Today I noticed an issue in HCL Nomad Web and date pickers. When using an English locale in your browser, everything is fine. The date picker displays the correct month overview, starting the week with Sunday (which is the technically correct day). With German locale set instead, the layout is wrong as the week starts with Monday (which is actually accurate for a normal week I guess). [...]

Quick Tip: locales are everything

Tuesday, November 29, 2022 at 6:06 PM UTC
This is just for my records because I will forget about that again - like today. I wanted to temporarily test Domino 12.0.2 as a native installation, not Docker. The machine I had for this runs Ubuntu 22.04 - which is not supported of course, but I thought this was ok for a simple test. My problem: neither One Touch nor remote setup for configuration was possible. One touch Obviously I [...]
