Installing JVM Patch on Domino with Notes Client

First of all >> thanks a lot to Ulrich Krause for posting this helpful article.

For some reasons, some customer also have the IBM Notes Client installed on the same server where they run the IBM Domino Server. If you try to install the JVM Patch, the installer always comes back with the directory of the IBM Notes Client and you´re unable to install the JVM patch to the Domino Server.

Regarding the hint of eknori you can do this the following way:

D:\temp\jvmpatch> LAX_VM d:\domino_program_directory\jvm\bin\java.exe -D$USER_INSTALL_DIR$=d:\domino_program_directory

 It´s working great !!! Thanks again !!


  1. Note that if you run into problems (my Domino Server Controller would throw a java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/ibm/jsse2/aH (wrong name: com/ibm/jsse2/ah)) you need to use a param to correctly uninstall:

    \uninst_jvmpatch\uninstall.exe -D$USER_INSTALL_DIR$=

    correctly uninstalls the patch. You can verify by navigating to \jvm\bin\ and executing:
    java -version
    which should repond with: (mine is a 32bit install)
    java version “1.6.0”
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build pwi3260sr16fp2ifix-20141203_01(SR16 FP2+IV66900))
