MWLUG 2014 Sessions and Workshops announced – What’s in it for you?

mwlug2014_banner As Richard Moy posted yesterday on his blog, the sessions and workshops for MWLUG 2014 have been announced. I am fortunate to speak with my manager, Dr. Tom Bilan, at this year’s event. This is our session:

Homebrew your own Metrics: An IBM Domino Administrator’s Guide to SNMP It’s important as an IBM Domino administrator to get metrics on your servers so that you know what’s going on in your “Brewhouse”. There are also many ways to obtain this very valuable information, like 3rd party tools and even the IBM Domino Administrator client. What many don’t know is that there is also another way to capture this very valuable information. SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is an Internet-standard protocol for managing devices on IP networks. In this session, you will learn more about it, what it can give you, how to set it up, and ways to ‘drink in’ or monitor the information. With proper configuration, administrators not familiar with IBM Domino can obtain and use key IBM Domino server metrics. Homebrew your own metrics by attending this session!

If you haven’t registered to attend this event in beautiful Grand Rapids, Michigan (selected for two years as Beer City USA and recent city to host the National Homebrewers Conference), you need to stop reading this and go register! For only $50, you get over 47 hours of technical and business training, plus the chance to network (collaborate) with some of the best and brightest in our industry!

Have you registered yet? No? Here… let me give you the link: http://www.mwlug.com/mwlug/mwlug2014.nsf/Register.xsp

Did you know that Kramer Reeves, the Director of Product Management for Collaboration Solutions at IBM, is the MWLUG 2014 Opening General Session Speaker? There also going to be some GREAT sponsors there, anxiously waiting to tell you about there products (and maybe give away an item or two).

NOW you want to attend, right? SO GO REGISTER!

Done? Good! Don’t forget to get yourself a place to stay, because you’re not staying with me!

Did I mention that there might be a beer or two there?

Looking forward to see you all there!!!

MWLUG 2014 Abstract Submission Extended until Next Friday, May 23, at 5:00 PM

From Richard Moy and the MWLUG Committee:

With the sad news of Tim [Tripcony] passing away, many of us have not had the time to absorb what has happened.  Given that, the MWLUG committee has decided to extend the abstract submission period for MWLUG 2014 until the end of next week, May 23.  MWLUG was the first time that I met Tim in person.  He was one of the first to volunteer as a speaker when we first started the MWLUG conferences.  He will be sorely missed.

Great idea…

There’s also a mention that Tim has allowed Red Pill to use his last presentation given publicly, and they have submitted it for MWLUG. If I had a vote, there would be no question… I hope to see that presentation at MWLUG!

Error with Notes Traveler To Do app on iOS – Fix coming, but workaround available

There was a issue reported to me by a very important colleague related to the To Do app running on his iPhone. When he tried to sync between the Traveler server and his device, he got this error:

ErrorOniOSToDoApp

After a quick call to IBM Support, I was given my answer:

There is a recently discovered problem in the ToDo app that causes HTTP requests to be malformed when the server redirects the requests.  A fix will be published to the App Store, however, it may take 1-2 weeks to appear.  In the meantime, the customer can avoid the issue by instructing the affected users to modify their account settings in the ToDo app.  In the space reserved for the server
name, please use company.com/traveler instead of company.com, for example.  This will avoid the HTTP redirects which trigger the problem and should allow the device to sync normally.

A quick fix, with a more permanent one coming… Well done, IBM!!!

IBMchampion

They announced the 2014 IBM Champions for ICS this morning, but I wasn’t in my email yet when a colleague came by and congratulated me. Sure enough, as I looked at the list, I could not believe it… I WAS CHOSEN AS AN IBM CHAMPION!

Never in my wildest dreams would I think I would be on the same list as many of those that have been and currently are IBM Champions! I consider all of them as legends and heroes in this space.

I was honored to be nominated, and even more honored to be selected. Thank you to those of you that nominated me, and I hope to live up to the honor. Congratulations to to all of you (past and present) who have been selected.
