Git Push Error : RPC failed; curl 56 SSLRead() return error -9806

21 September 2016 Thomas Hampel
I am using Git for version control of software projects I am working on.
Recently I wanted to push the changes I've made to a Domino template my git client responded with the following error:

error: RPC failed; curl 56 SSLRead() return error -9806
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

To cut a long story short : this problem was caused by using HTTP(S) for pusing changes to the git server. After changing to SSH, everything worked fine again.

IBM Mail Onboarding Manager - Failed to get delegate list.

11 September 2016 Thomas Hampel
Moving users from Exchange to Domino is called 'migration' , and moving from an on-premises Domino environment to the cloud is called "onboarding".
IBM provides the Mail Onboarding Manager (MOM) for moving users to the cloud.

While MOM worked fine for all other users, I've been running into a problem with one specific user.
An error was reported when I was trying to move this account to the cloud. The error message was "Delegate is not in service"

Image:IBM Mail Onboarding Manager - Failed to get delegate list.
In my specific case, MOM was looping between "Completed quality check" and "Replicating mail file".
Replication from the mail server to the MOM server worked fine, but then MOM did not succeed in uploading the mail file to Connections Cloud.

The MOM log file showed error "4005: Replication is disabled".

Root cause:

The mail server or its cluster partner contains a database with exactly the same replicaID as the mail file you are trying to move to the cloud.
Possibly it is a restore of the mail file where replication is disabled for this NSF file.

Solution:

Delete the other database or change the replicaID of the other NSF file using this code.

What is the size limits for embedded images in IBM Connections?

5 September 2016 Thomas Hampel
IBM Connections Cloud is offering a wooping 1 TByte of personal file storage and 50 Gbyte of storage for each community.
What you might not be aware of is that there is another limit which apply when embedded images.

While the industry is talking about 4k-UltraHD displays with 8 megapixels, the standard computer display these days doesnt have more than a FullHD display ( 1920x1080 pixel ) with 2 megapixels.
I stumbled into those limits when working with a really large JPG file. in my case it was an image with 96 megapixels (=190 Mbyte, 17384px x 5558px)
A typical JPG image with 4k resolution should have a size of about 10 Mbyte, so its a little odd to complain about not being able to embed a 96 megapixel image.

There is no limit on height/width, just an overall size limit for each embedded image which unfortunately is not consistent across the different connections applications.

However... here are the limitations for embedding images in the various connections components:
IBM Connections Cloud (S1 / S2)
Files (Personal) 2 Gbyte per file, 1 Tbyte in total
Files (Community) 2 Gbyte per file, 50 Gbyte in total
Activities 2 Gbyte per file
Wiki 75 Mbyte per image
Blog 10 Mbyte per image
Forum 30 MByte per image
Homepage/Status 10 Mbyte per image
Profile 5 Mbyte for profile photo.


Please note that instead of embedding an image, it is always possible to link a link to your personal file store instead which allows linking extra-extra-large images of up to 2Gbyte in size.

WIKI's

In an onprem environment the max. size in MB is part of the error message
Image:What is the size limits for embedded images in IBM Connections?
It is possible to modify these limits by editing the wikis-config.xml
Image:What is the size limits for embedded images in IBM Connections?

or by setting higher defaults for size limits as described by Rainer Brandl

In Connections Cloud the limit is predefined by IBM and can not be changed by customers.
Also the error message in Connections Cloud is a little misleading:
Image:What is the size limits for embedded images in IBM Connections?
Note: A bug report has already been created, so I assume its fixed soon.

Forum, Blog, Ideation Blog

For a Forum post, blog post or ideation blog entry the error message is misleading in Connections Cloud as well as for OnPrem deployments as it indicates a damaged file or virus infection.
Image:What is the size limits for embedded images in IBM Connections?
Of course the file is not virus infected nor damaged.

In onprem deployments the default limit of 1Mbyte can be customized in the files-config.xml
Image:What is the size limits for embedded images in IBM Connections?

...and for Connections Cloud a bug report has been created to update this error message with something more meainingful
