Notes client doesn’t launch after upgrade: SOLVED


I like to share when I find a solution that hasn’t been previously documented in a technote.  The short story is this:  If you encounter the following error when trying to launch Notes:  CWPA4003W: Failed to load application from url: nrpc:/….nsfname=…

NotesLaunchError

CWPA4003W: Failed to load application from url: nrpc:/….nsfname=…

Then start by doing traditional maintenance on the local databases, especially names.nsf

The details:
You may encounter this error after a variety of events.  In this particular case Notes gave this error and would not launch after running the installer to upgrade from 9.0.1 FP10 to 9.0.1 FP10 SHF315.  The error persisted even after uninstalling and re-installing Notes — the first indication it might not be a problem with the software.  Also, Notes would launch in basic mode or if you right click and select Run As Administrator.  That misguided my troubleshooting into thinking it was an issue with Eclipse or Java.  There is a similar issue reported in this technote:
https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg1LO67058

Detailed steps to fix:
1.  Edit the notes.ini and make sure it has the following line based on the version of Notes installed:
CREATE_R9_DATABASES=1
CREATE_R10_DATABASES=1
(If you have an earlier version, you have bigger problems and should be upgrading to the latest version, currently that is 10.0.1 FP3)
2.  Launch a cmd prompt and change the path to the Notes program directory
3.  enter these commands one at a time in this order:
nfixup names.nsf
nupdall names.nsf -R
ncompact names.nsf
(Note: it will prompt for the Notes password.  When you type it in, nothing will appear to happen until you press enter.)

I highly recommend executing these commands on ALL of the local databases.  To do so, just leave “names.nsf” out of the commands you enter.

Domino Mobile Apps for the iPad is Here!


A Notes client (sort of) for the iPad has just been released!  This is the announcement.  I’m looking forward to the next steps when they port this to the iPhone and Android phone.  All the security, replication, workflow and offline functionality of Notes with the portability of a mobile device and no redundant develop to web-enable any apps.  Nice job IBM and HCL.

Why Use Domino & Notes for collaborating among teams: A Customer Testimonial


My recap of CollabSphere is coming soon.  Meanwhile, my friend Bernd Gewehr is featured on IBM’s website right now, and he does a great job of explaining the benefit of using Notes for app development for his company.

Small companies do big things with Notes apps.

You asked. IBM responds: Interim Fix for Domino to support SHA-2 and TLS fix for POODLE attack.


All the information you need is in these two technotes:
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21418982
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21687167
Watch for the fix to be posted on Fix Central soon.  Then this can be marked Completed in Greenhouse and IdeaJam.net
Note that one of these will only be supported on Domino 9.0.1.  The 8.5 code can’t support SHA-2 encryption.

What does this mean? This addresses the issue that web browsers will soon no longer support connecting to websites that use the older encryption due to its weaker algorithms that can be broken with today’s faster computers.  So Domino servers using https will need this update to allow web browsers to be able to connect after they drop support for the old security.
