A Sampling of Notes Domino 7.0.2 Fixes

Looks like it should be out in September. Here are some fixes that we may have seen at my site or could benefit from.


SPR# RWAH6HPQ8B - This iSeries specific fix allows daylight savings time and standard time changes without recycling the Domino server. (Me: It's about time for this one - I always have to end and restart the Domino servers on iSeries because they will lock up when the time changes.)

SPR# MHOL6J7QYH - Failover did not work when the primary server was down. This regression was introduced in 6.5.5.

SPR# KYOE6M37ES - Fixed a Microsoft Internet Explorer freeze when trying to download an attachment which contained '?' in the file name.

SPR# FMWI6MBM6M - Fixed a problem that an attachment could not be downloaded if it contained a backslash in its name."

SPR# DWHR6PQCT4 - When choosing not to install the DWA 7 Control (ActiveX), the user was constantly presented with a warning of this. This change of behavior occurred due to the new ActiveX block support in IE 6 SP2. Without offering a way to continue to use the ActiveX on a subsequent page, there is now no way to ever install the ActiveX. Answering affirmatively that you want to continue to try to use the ActiveX allowed the user to then click the blocked ActiveX bar and install the ActiveX (which refreshes the page).

A new Notes.ini, iNotes_WA_ConfirmBlockedActiveX=0, has been added in 7.0.2 to disable this confirmation box. This setting results in the inability to install the DWA Control from normal DWA view and document pages. However, the DWA control may now be installed from the DWA Preferences page, within the Basics panel!!

SPR# DPOL6LMEBW - A scheduled agent running on AS400, which entered an infinite loop, would not terminate when the "Max LotusScript/Java execution time" limit was reached. The agent would continue to run indefinitely. This problem has been fixed in 7.0.2.

SPR# MKAA677PAK - Updated the Rooms and Resource Manager task (RnRMgr) to take a new command line parameter of "-?" (or "/?"). This paramter will cause RnRMgr to print out a description of all of its supported console commands and a brief description of what they do.

SPR# LMEF6MXLXZ - Open collection always reads from server - does not make use of cache.ndk. This problem was a regression introduced in 6.5.5 and 7.0, and fixed in 7.0.2. (Me: This could be why view performance has been seeming really slow - opening the views wasn't making use of local cache apparently!(

SPR# TKIE3ZA457 - This fix resolves the issue of replication problems when a user sends a message to themselves from a mail file replica which is not on their home server and keeps a copy in the Sent folder.

SPR# GPKS63AGBN - Fixed a problem where performing a Design Replace, always disabled the Out of Office Agent. This regression was introduced in 6.5.2.

SPR# MPAA6JZKAZ - "Contact","Of" and "Phone" fields are blank in Phone Message when "To" field is not filled first and "," is pressed. This problem has been fixed in 6.5.6 and 7.0.2.

SPR# EHET5TDP2U - Fixed a crash on the Macintosh client with over 1000 fonts installed. This regression was introduced in 6.0.

SPR# BSPR67HN6W - Using a server based, Notes.ini variable (ADMINP_EXCHANGE_ALL_UNREAD_MARKS = 1), this fix will allow the exchange of unread marks when the Administration Process based replication is used to create and populate a replica between servers. Please note that the amount of time to perform the initial replication by the administration process will increase due to the additional work required to exchange all the unread marks.

SPR# EFEN6LVQMD - @Error was returned if @DBLookup returned data more than 64K bytes long. Prior to this regression, @DBLookup was allowed to return data that long, but the result of the formula couldn't be longer then 64KB. This fix repairs the problem, which was a regression introduced in 7.0.1.

Note: "A fix for this SPR has been developed but is currently undergoing testing. IBM reserves the right to remove this fix from the targeted release if it does not pass quality assurance tests. Please consider this information to be provisional. Do not base irreversible business decisions on this information until this notice has been removed."
