SAML & IBM Notes Traveler – Encrypted E-Mails Issue

A while ago, we ran into issue with SAML on IBM Notes Traveler devices. The Users were not able to open encrypted E-Mails.

Before assigning Users with SAML Policy in Domino Directory, Users were able to upload their ID-File and open Encrypted E-Mails. But as soon as the SAML Policy was assigned to a user, that would not be possible anymore.

We opened a Ticket at IBM and shortly after that we got a confirmation that the issue is related to SPR # GFAL9ZBJVT . A few days ago we got a Hot Fix for this issue, which needs to be installed on the users Mail Server. After installing this fix, the users were able to open encrypted E-Mails on their Apple devices (with Companion App installed) without any issue.

The Hot Fix for SPR # GFAL9ZBJVT is not included in Domino 10.0.1 or 10.0.1 FP1 release.

Update: The Hotfix is included in Domino 10.0.1 FP1 Code, take a look at the article from Daniel Nashed.

IBM Notes/Domino G1 Language Packs Released

IBM Notes and Domino G1 Language Pack was released yesterday, part numbers are listed below.

Take note that the FP1 is not included, so you should install it right away after installing the slipstream version. And if you had the first “troubled” version of the client installed, you should uninstall the original slipstream release completely before installing the FP1 Update to ensure compatibility with FP1, as described in the official article.

APNs Certificate used for Traveler 9.0.1.21 Expires soon!

The APNs certificate implemented in IBM Notes Traveler 9.0.1.21,will expire on 30th March and therefore the Push Notifications for Apple iOS devices will not be possible with the “default” certificate.

The easiest way to make sure that the Push Notifications functions properly is to update your Traveler Server to 10.0.0.0 or newer release. Index of all IBM Notes Traveler Releases:

In order to upgrade Traveler, there is no need to update Domino to the Version 10, although I would strongly recommend it. Traveler 10.0.X System Requirements:

Traveler 9.0.1.18 is out and it brings one big change!

Since yesterday the new Traveler 9.0.1.18 Update is out.

As usual there are a few bugfixes, but this time there is also a new feature which changes the way the users mail file is accessed.

Until now the users mail database was accessed by the Traveler server using the server ID, but starting from Traveler 9.0.1.18 the “run as user” Feature will be enabled by default, which means that the users mail database will be accessed with a user ID rather than the server ID. This behavior can be disabled by using the “notes.ini” parameter “NTS_USER_SESSION=false“.

Details on what´s new.

The Traveler 9.0.1.18 update can be downloaded from Fix Central.
