Unexpected UI behavior in Sametime Administration Page running on Domino 8.5.x

Technote (FAQ)


Question

The user interface in the Sametime Administration page does not behave as expected when running on Domino 8.5.x server.

Two examples of the Sametime Administration Page producing unexpected results:

Documented in SPR# MSXU7RU4ZH:
1. Install the Sametime 8.5 Community server on Windows OS.
2. Log in with Domino admin ID and go to Sametime admin page.
3. Click Configuration -> Community Services link and the related page is displayed.
4. The tabs should display as "Community Services" and "Anonymous Access". Instead, they display as "Anonymous Access" and "undefined".


Documented in SPR# MSXU7SA4MK:
1. Install the Sametime 8.5 Community server on Windows 2008 OS.
2. Log in with Domino admin ID and go to Sametime admin page.
3. Click Logging -> Settings link and the related page is displayed.
4. The tabs should display as "General" and "Capacity Warnings". Instead, they display as "Capacity Warnings" and "undefined".


Cause

Domino 8.5.x ships with the IBM JVM that has a regression in running some XSL transformations. This can cause some Lotus companion products that leverage XSL running in Domino to not work as expected or to fail.


Answer

This issue has been reported to Quality Engineering. This issue does not impact user chat or Sametime meetings, but IBM recommends the below steps to address the known issues with the administration page.


Manual fix for the problem
Perform these steps on the Domino server:
1) Create a file named jaxp.properties with the following contents:
javax.xml.transform.TransformerFactory=org.apache.xalan.processor.TransformerFactoryImpl

2) Save this file in the following location in the Domino program directory:

<domino program directory>\jvm\lib\jaxp.properties


Automated fix for the problem
A fix is now available which automates the manual steps that are documented above. This Domino interim fix for Sametime ensures compatibility between Domino and Sametime. Domino 8.5.3 is now a supported platform for Sametime 8.5.2 IFR1. For more information, see the Sametime 8.5.2 IFR1 announcement letter.

Does this interim fix conflict with existing or future hotfixes?
No. This fix does not conflict with existing hotfixes. You can run this interim fix to patch the JVM for Sametime compatibility even if you have a hotfix applied. This will not alter the versioning of the hotfix.
