IBM Lotus Connector for SAP Solutions with IBM Lotus Enterprise Integrator for Domino 8.5.3 64-bit- 23 January 2013 - (2) Comments

Thomas Hampel

For running IBM Lotus Connector for SAP Solutions with the 64bit version of IBM Lotus Enterprise Integrator for Domino 8.5.3, you will need the following packages:

Part nr.         Software name
CRG0LEN        IBM Lotus Enterprise Integrator for Domino V8.5.3 Multi O/S English 64-bit
CZN8CEN        IBM Lotus Connector for SAP Solutions 2.0.1 64-bit

Unfortunately this is not enough - according to the LEI documentation there should be one more file "librfc32.dll" which is missing
librfc32.dll                <- not present in the package, missing !
librfc32u.dll
Icudt*.dll
Icuin*.dll
Icuuc*.dll
libsapucum.dll

The file can be found in the 64-bit version of SAP RFC SDK 6.40 kit  which is not part of the IBM packages
This software is only available from SAP via the SAP Marketplace., so download and unpack the SAP RFC SDK to find the DLL you are looking for.

Copy the DLL files from the SDK into the same place as the other libraries above (e.g. C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ ) to make the SAP Connector work.

On special request of a customer, I'm posting a little LotusScript to back up the current NotesID locally.


        Dim s As New NotesSession
        Dim NotesID$, BackupID$, NotesData$
       
        NotesData = s.Getenvironmentstring("Directory", True)
        NotesID$ = s.Getenvironmentstring("KeyFileName", True)
       
        '# check if the 2nd character in the string NotesID is a ':'
        If Not Right(Left(NotesID$,2),1) = ":" Then
                '# NotesID is located within Data Directory
                NotesID$ = NotesData$ & "\" & NotesID$                
        End If
        Print "Current NotesID is : " & NotesID$
       
        BackupID$ = NotesID$ & ".bak"
        Print "Backup will be stored in : " & BackupID$
       
        If Dir$ (BackupID$,0)="" Then
                '# No previous backup found, so okay to continue
        Else
                '# Previous backup found, so deleting existing file and create a new backup
                Print "Previous backup found, so deleting existing file and create a new backup"
                Kill BackupID$
        End If
        Print "Creating a backup of your NotesID in : " & BackupID$
       
        FileCopy NotesID$, BackupID$
        MsgBox "A backup of you Notes User ID was created in " & Chr(13) & BackupID$

Resizing Partitions in a virtualized environment- 12 January 2013 - (0) Comments

Running lots of virtual machines on the same hypervisor is not a problem until reaching the point of running out of disk space for one virtual machine.
Its not a complex task to assign more disk space to an existing VM.

When using Redhat or CentOS, you can increase the file size on the fly. See this VMware knowledge base article.
for other operating systems LiveCDs like Gparted or Parted Magic will do the job.

Step by step instructions for using Gparted are available, e.g. here.
