I would like to bring your attention to the SPR# RMAA88UAGF – server crashes when clients synchronize unread marks on Domino 8.5.2 servers.
I ran into this last week when we had some unexplainable server crashes for apparently no good reason – one of them happened when I was showing a help desk tech how to synchronize unread marks between replicas from the client. I investigated and the crash report that Domino gave me pointed me right to this error – now fixed in FP1. It is a regression bug and is not fixed in either of the previous hot fixes for the Domino 8.5.2 code stream. I had servers with both the SMTP patch and the interim fix (IF) as well – they all crashed at one time or another. I installed HF 1 on all servers and now they are safe from this issue – I tested it on all of them just to be on the safe side.
If you don’t have HF 1 installed yet – do it soon, this one can happen at anytime during the day and there is no warning whatsoever. only a big “boom” when the server disappears from the face of the (electronic) earth. Incidentally, there are allot of other problems that are fixed in that HF as well – I suggest you look into it right away and consider upgrading all your Domino 8.5.2 servers soon.

Today was the much awaited DCLug – a high-tech affair organized using LinkedIn and Meetup.com at the IBM Briefing Center on K Street in DC. Thanks for Jack Dausman and Kevin Pettitt (and all the others involved) who organized the affair.
It was the first of a regular string of meets that will be held regularly from here on forward – we had a nice sized crowd who came together to listen to some good content about Weilgut’s MindPlan software, the eProductivity software suite, tungle.me and a short presentation about new Lotus Notes Domino 8.5.2 features.
The next meet is not fixed yet, but there has been some talks about trying to arrange another DCLug meet around the time Erick Mack of eProductivity fame is in town sometime in November … now that would be sweet! Just join the LinkedIn group and our Meetup.com group – even if you are not in the immediate DC area – maybe you just want to come in, take part and then have some more fun at one of DC’s many cultural offerings.
Hope to see you there next time. Below are some pictures I took of Jack Dausman presenting.

For those who could not make it or did not get a connection to the live stream (some people complaining on twitter), here the presentation. I am timing for this to go out AFTER Doug is done (or close to being done) so that you pay attention if you are one of the people actually listening in …
