SSL Session Data Length Error

 11 April 2016 09:40:42
After upgrading your Domino Server to 9.0.1 FP5 IF1 you may notice more or less often an error on the console:

New SSL session data length of 103 bytes is larger than the
current size of 100 bytes.


IBM published an APAR Request about this issue a few days ago:

Error description
                Since 9.0.1Fp5IF1, the defaults SSL SESSION SIZE is causing the
                following warning to be thrown more often.
               
                   New SSL session data length of 103 bytes is larger than the
                current size of 100 bytes.
               
                Default size may be to small for generall SSL and is causing
                the warning
                

Local fix
                Set SSL_SESSION_SIZE ini to a high value hence extending the
                default


To get rid of this messages set SSL_SESSION_SIZE in your notes.ini to 1024 bytes for example:

SSL_SESSION_SIZE=1024

tell traveler security delete - no longer needed

 6 April 2016 17:16:04
 
It is no longer mandatory for administrators to manually perform tell traveler security delete to remove the device security administration data from IBM Traveler after a device has been deleted or reset.

Starting with version 9.0.1.10, IBM Traveler will automatically quarantine deleted devices and move them into the deleted state. These deleted devices will not be seen in the "Devices" view, however they will continue to be seen in the "Devices Security" view for up to 30 days. IBM Traveler keeps deleted device security data for the 30 day period in order to
  • Publish device security data to the IBM Traveler Web Administration Console so that Administrators can take further action on those deleted devices
  • Allow IBM Traveler Administration REST API consumers query for a list of all deleted devices.
  • Allow sufficient time for any security actions taken against the device to complete.

If there is no device activity for 30 days, the corresponding device security data will be automatically removed. This means any security action previously completed or still pending against the device will be lost. However, if a deleted or reset device happens to connect and/or sync with IBM Traveler within the 30 day window, it will be moved to an active state and will resurface in the "Devices" view.

A notes.ini setting, NTS_ADMIN_CLEANUP_TIMEOUT, is available to customize the 30 day period for security data removal.

If an administrator wants the security data to be immediately removed during device deletion, they can assign a value of 0 to this ini setting. This forces IBM Traveler to remove both the device and its security data when tell traveler delete or tell traveler reset is performed. Any previous security (such as approval, deny, or wipe) actions taken against the device will be immediately lost. In environments where NTS_ADMIN_CLEANUP_TIMEOUT = 0 has been set, we recommend not to delete a device immediately after a security action has been issued. Instead, wait for the server and/or device to complete the action before deleting the device. For example, if a device or application wipe has been issued and the device is deleted immediately following that wipe, even before the device acknowledges the wipe, the wipe action will be lost from IBM Traveler.

Note: There is still no explicit indication available on the IBM Traveler Administration UI to highlight devices in the deleted state. If a device is deleted, it will not appear in the "Devices" view.

Call for Abstracts DNUG Conference 2016 in Hamburg

 14 März 2016 22:24:17
Die nächste DNUG Konferenz findet vom 01. bis 02.06.2016 in Hamburg statt!  

Image:Call for Abstracts DNUG Conference 2016 in Hamburg
Image:Call for Abstracts DNUG Conference 2016 in Hamburg

Wer sich als Referent aktiv einbringen möchte, hat hierzu die Chance einen Abstract einzureichen.
Die einzelnen Tracks werden durch die einzelnen DNUG-Fachgruppen organisiert.

Ich selbst bin Mitverantwortlich für die DNUG-Fachgruppe Mobile und würde mich über Abstract zu Mobile-Themen freuen.

Was mir hierbei am Herzen liegt:
Die DNUG ist eine User Group und lebt vom Austausch, der Diskussion und dem Networking untereinander. Daher würde ich mich freuen, wenn nicht nur die üblichen bekannten Sprecher Abstracts einreichen, sondern auch neue Gesichter sich motiviert fühlen, sich einzubringen.
Jeder hat bestimmte Herausforderungen oder Aufgaben bei sich im Unternehmen gemeistert und die sich im Alltag bewährt haben.
Warum diese nicht teilen und im Rahmen eines DNUG Vortrags vorstellen? Andere stehen in der Regel vor den gleichen Herausforderungen - die DNUG ist die Plattform diese Erfahrungen untereinander auszutauschen.

Wenn jemand also zu Mobile-Themen (IBM Notes Traveler, Enterprise Mobile Device & Application Management, interessante Mobile Inhouse Projekte, Best Practices, ...) einen Vortrag halten oder an einer Diskussionsrunde teilnehmen möchte, kann sich gerne bei mir melden oder einfach Online den Abstract einreichen:

http://dnug.de/call-abstracs-dnug-konferenz-2016/

Wer selbst keinen Vortrag halten will oder kann, aber gerne ein Thema behandelt sehen möchte, kann mir gerne auch einfach einen Themenvorschlag per Mail schicken oder hier einen Kommentar hinterlassen. Ich würde dann schauen, ob wir hierzu einen Referenten in der Community finden.
