User registration issue – “Mail Address not unique”

Today I had the following issue at customer site ( German LP ):

The customer has embedded the AD via Directory Assistance. We created a new AD account and entered the mail address for some sync options.

01_AD-Account

Afterwards we tried to register the user in the Domino Directory and received the error message, that the Internet Address is not unique and therefore we couldn´t register the user.

02_User-Registration

Then we removed the mail address from the AD account, rebuild the XDir with a
“sh xdir r” and then we could register the new user without any problems.

So it seems, that during the registration process also via DA embedded directories are checked for duplicate Internet Addresses. I created a case @HCL – if I receive any informations I’ll update this blog entry.

UPDATE: I received the information from HCL Support that there´s an enhancement request which has been made public: https://bit.ly/30qOunW

VoP 2.0 – Issue

Last week I installed VoP 2.0 on multiple domino environments. In one environment I faced the issue that I always received the following error message when opening the locally installed VoP Web Client:

“Unable to load folders over network”

I took a look at the Developer Source in Google Chrome and could see the following error messages among other entries:

  • folderController error: Folders are not available, folder controller promise rejected for unknown reasons., SyntaxError: Unexpected token ‘<‘
  • Error occurs when fetching folder data: SyntaxError: Unexpected token ‘<‘
  • Failed to get offline user context when load applications from appregsitry SyntaxError: Unexpected token ‘<‘

After opening a case @ HCL I received the very helpful entry for the NOTES.INI:

DOMINO_FORCE401_WITH_HTML_LOGIN_PAGE=1

After setting this NOTES.INI entry and restarting the HTTP server everything was running fine. Thanks a lot for the quick and helpful support to HCL Support ( especially to Sudhir Kunale who was working in this case ).

HCL Domino AppDev Pack 1.0.5 available

Today HCL released the Domino AppDev Pack 1.0.5 with the following enhancements:

  • Domino server V10.0.1FP5 or later
  • Domino server V11.0.1 or later
  • Node.js V12
  • (Preview) Java 1.8 or later

(Preview) A new JAR file with the com.hcl.domino.db API. This API is similar to the Node.js @domino/domino-db API, but does not yet support, rich text, agents, and Act-as-User operations. See install kit for information about the Java Doc.

(Preview) Support for working with rich text content. See here and here for more details.

A new way to configure the Domino server AppDev pack components. The AppDev Pack kit contains a new database template from which the Domino administrator creates the configuration database, adpconfig.nsf. For installation details see here.

Improved reliability for long running Proton applications.

Instructions for the make_certs.* and make_keyring.* scripts.

@domino/domino-db support for duplicate items using the duplicateItems property. Use this optional property to read and write items in a document with the same name. See here for more details.

Support for a related property, canonicalFormat. Use this property to request that item data be provided in a canonical format. See here for more details.

 

The Domino AppDev Pack 1.0.5 is already available at HCL Flexnet.

Enforcing password change at the next time for Internet password could be a problem

Yesterday I had an issue at customer where a case at HCL ( CSCS0131265 ) has been opened. Up to the beginning:

with Domino V11.0.1 the great feature for authenticating users accessing via Web protocol like HTTP(s), LDAP,… against the ID Vault is working like a charm. Therefore I registered a lot of people without setting an HTTP password in the person document. Afterwards I enforced the users to change the password after the first login what also worked fine.

You’ll receive the information that the Password Change request has been successfully sent to the Administration Requests what still is working. Now up the problem:

If the AdminP tries to modify the HTTP password in the person document you’ll receive the following error in the server console:

[2904:0005-1378] 23.06.2020 12:55:58 Adminp Request: [Change HTTP Password in Domino Directory] on [Username]

[2904:0005-1378] 23.06.2020 12:55:58 Admin Process: Received the following error performing a Change HTTP Password in Domino Directory request on Username (Path: admin4.nsf; Name: HTTPPassword): Note item not found

So it seems that the Internet Password isn´t set during the user registration Adminp cannot finish the change of the Internet Password.
