Upcoming Webinar - Let's Get Real: What's in Domino V10

On Wednesday February 28 there will be a very interesting webinar, Let's Get Real: What's in Domino v10.

The #domino2025 jams were extremely successful. Your excitement around the future of Domino, Notes, Verse and Sametime was evident. The goal of the face-to-face jams and virtual events was to funnel the collective wisdom of you—our clients, champions, business partners and ISVs—into a strategic plan of action to reinvigorate the Domino platform for application development, mail and chat for the 21st century, so you can conquer the biggest business challenges of tomorrow.
Join Bob Schultz, Richard Jefts and Andrew Manby for this unique webcast to understand what we learned and what we are going to do in 2018 with Domino v10.
We will share the first set of v10 WOW items to "get pumped" about. We will also underscore our commitment to the Domino roadmap with "proof of concept" demos from the HCL labs that will leave you wanting more.
Together, IBM and its strategic partner HCL, are going to deliver on its commitment to a major release in 2018. This hour-long virtual session is the first installment in the story of how you will be able to learn about v10, and where to go to learn more.
This is one webcast that you are not going to want to miss.

Registration for this webinar is open.

Quick Notes Tip: Notes Designer Error - The Maximum Number of Login Attempts has been exceeded

At the moment we are working in our Notes Domino production environment with Notes Domino 9.0.1 Feature Pack 7. This morning the following message appeared when I tried to open the Notes Designer. After clicking on OK in the message dialog the next message appeared whether I wanted to close Notes. After clicking twice on 'No' the Notes Client remained open and the Notes Designer opened as well. In the Designer I could not access any design elements within te Notes applications. All Notes application where 'empty'; no design element (forms, views, agents) were displayed in the Designer. The day before I had regularly switched between different id's. In all the years I have been working with Notes Domino I had not seen this message before at the start of the Notes Designer.

Initially I entered the message in Google. I came across the following IBM Support document, LO72683: CAN NOT RUN DOMINO DESIGNER BY RIGHT-CLICK> OPEN IN DESIGNER.
In the IBM Support document the solution was proposed, as a local fix, to delete the folder "Workspace" of the Notes client.

As a 'solution' I did not remove the Workspace folder but closed the Notes Client and the Notes Designer and restarted the Notes Client with my own administrator id file belonging to my organization. The message did not appear again and I could access all Notes application design elements again in the Notes Designer.
IBM closed this problem without profiding a solution. Probably IBM sees this behaviour in the Notes Client and Notes Designer as an acceptable bug.
So if this message ever appears do not delete the Workspace folder but close the Notes Client and Notes Designer and restart with a 'correct' id file.
