Tags: Lotus Domino fixup corrupt database 8.5 8.5.x
After a problem at a customer with a corrupt
database which could not be fixed by the fixup task, (the database kept
reporting that a consistency check was in progress) one of my coworkers
contacted IBM who eventually gave him the following bit of information
There is a known issue where fixup does not delete the
bad document: SPR # TSOE8KCJCP - Fixup does not repair corrupt database
Setting the following ini variable should allow fixup
to continue on the error.
The SPR is a regression that was introduced in 8.5.1 and
the last known release where it worked is 8.5 . So if the workaround does
not work, try to run fixup on a 8.5 server to see if the database is cleaned

I recently ran into a nasty surprise in
an agent I wrote ages ago that uses the Servers\Mail Users view in the
Domino directory to find users per server, which performs some checks against
the mail database.
The agent loops through the entries,
using the NotesViewEntry.ColumnValues instead of accessing the underlying
document, in the view which worked fine all the way up to Domino 8.5.0
After upgrading the Administration server
to 8.5.1 the agent started reporting problems with the database owner,
Turned out that the Name column of the
view has been changed from displaying the user name in Abbreviated format
to 'Lastname, Firstname'.
So if you've ever used this view in
any of your code, check to see if this change has consequences, and while
you're at it also check for changes to any of the other views in the Domino
directory that might have changed. I know I will
Oh and what did I learn from this? -
When writing code that relies on information from a system database, add
an additional view (with the prohibit design refresh ... property set of

Recently one of our customers contacted
us with a support question regarding some HTML formatted emails.
R8.5.0 & 8.5.0 FP1 users can not
forward or reply with history on some HTML formatted emails, like for example
a reservation confirmation email sent by Hilton/DoubleTree hotels.
When accessing the email the messages
loads correctly, but the status bar at the bottom of the screen shows 'Document
attachment is invalid'.
Closing the message and opening it again
will show a popup with the same message that the user needs to click on
to be able to continue.
When trying to forward/reply with history,
the error 'Cannot save bitmap to disk' appears when you click on
Save as draft or Send/Send and File and you can not continue.

This weekend I've been testing Traveler
8.5 using an old HP iPaq 27909b and ran into a small problem.
Once you've enabled the security settings
on the Traveler policy settings document and they get pushed to a device
that can not comply to these settings, the Traveler 8.5 client will not
synchronise, further more it will not pickup any changes to the policy
