Domino release, Resource and Product IDs and Product directory

Domino is installed on IBM i using the following Resource ID which is different from the Passport Advantage product ID. Use the DSPSFWRSC command to display installed software on IBM i.

Domino Release Resource ID Product ID Product Directory
9.0.1 5733LD9 /qibm/ProdData/LOTUS/domino901

Domino 9.0.1 Gold release can not install over existing Beta release

If you install Domino Gold release over the previously installed Beta release, you will likely get duplicated jar files in the plugin directory, and there are chances that other files are duplicated too. The duplicated jar files in the plugin directory will cause the "Xsp Initialization error" while loading http because JVM is trying to load the old jar files that belongs to Beta.

This enhancement prevents you from installing Domino 9.0.1 Gold over existing Beta. Refer to Domino 9.0.x for i: Installation and Upgrade for the latest information on installation and upgrade.

Java version upgrade

Domino 9.0.1 requires Java version 6 SR14 as minimum. By default, Domino 9.0.1 for i uses Java V6 J9 32bit and requires the following product option.

Resource ID Option Feature Description
5761JV1 11 5111 Java SE 6 32 bit

An informational message is sent during Domino product installation if the required Java option is missing. You can install Domino and then install the required Java option.

Refer to the Software Requirements technical document for information on the required Java product options. Refer to Domino for i (i5/OS): What system fixes are required? for the latest information on required Java and system PTFs.

5761JV1 Option 11 is available with the IBM i media.

Support 64-bit version of JVM(1.6)

Domino uses 32-bit JVM by default. There are two methods to enable 64-bit JVM.

Setting JavaUse64BitJVM to the following value in Notes.ini is the preferred and recommended way.
    • JavaUse64BitJVM=1

Note: There is no need to manually set JAVA_HOME when setting JavaUse64BitJVM.

Setting JAVA_HOME to the following value in Notes.ini.
    • JAVA_HOME=/QOpenSys/QIBM/ProdData/JavaVM/jdk60/64bit

Note: If set JAVA_HOME to indicate a Java version, JavaUse64BitJVM will be overwritten and have no effect since JAVA_HOME can set to use 32-bit or 64-bit Java.

Ensure that IBM® Developer Kit for Java™ V6 J9 64-bit is installed and that the configuration will also enable all other Domino® jobs using 64-bit JVM.

Resource ID Option Feature Description
5761JV1 12 5112 Java SE 6 64 bit

5761JV1 Option 12 is available with the IBM i media.

Java security managed by Domino server

This enhancement adds the capability of customizing Domino server's own Java security file.

This feature can be enabled by Notes.ini parameter:
    • Setting JavaSecurityProperties = <your Java security file name>, in this case, your Java security file will not override the system's security file
    • Setting JavaSecurityProperties == <your Java security file name>, if you want to override the system's security file

For more information, see the Security of Java SE Documentation web site.

Serviceability improvement

Domino 9.0.1 on IBM i improved the NSD utility, it adds temporary storage used size to NSD output. When outputting the contents of pid.nbf, append <#> MB to each line for the size associated with the pid referenced.

This enhancement makes it easier for Domino support to diagnose certain technical problems.



Delete Domino Shared Memory (DLTDOMSHM) improvement

The *ALL parameter is supported in Domino 9.0.1 by CL command DLTDOMSHM to specify that the shared memory of all Domino servers should be deleted.



DBCS text printing improvement by LotusScript agent with CCSID 1399

This improvement prevents DBCS text printed by LotusScript agent from being truncated when Domino runs with CCSID 1399.

In previous release, if customer installed Domino server on IBM i with Primary Language Feature Code 2930, then the Domino server runs with CCSID 1399. When customer is running server agent which saves texts including DBCS characters with LotusScript open and print # statement on this environment, the text file is truncated in the middle of the text.

The problem does not occur if the Domino server runs with CCSID 5035.
