How fix Windows 10 when start to cut off portion of the screen

If you are forced to use Windows 10 to work , maybe with 2 or more monitors probably you have already seen windows starting to cut off windows on top or bottom, when opened full screen.

Today googling I finally found a workaround that doesn't require a restart:

Windows key+Ctrl+Shift+B

This shortcut restat the windows graphic subsystem and restore the functionality after a fast blankscreen.

here at this page, "Keyboard shortcuts in Windows" is described as "Wake PC from blank or black screen" with a link to a non existing page 😏.

I hope my blogpost could help

HCL Sametime 11.6 and MongoDB 4.4 - how to enable mongo security correctly

HCL Sametime 11.6 is supporting MongoDB 4.4 and this is the suggested version in case of new install.

One of the suggested steps during a Community setup is enable the Mongo security as described here , but the steps there are not enough, because 4.4 version in case of replica set , require also the creation and the use of a shared key to every Mongo server involved in the replica set, even if the replica set is composed by 1 node.

The first step required is the creation of  the authentication key that I made with the following command:

openssl rand -base64 741 > /etc/mongod.key

After the creation of the key, ownership and permission should be set in the right way:

chmod 600 /etc/mongod.key
chown mongod: /etc/mongod.key

now it's possible to enable the security  inside /etc/mongod.conf

  authorization: enabled
  keyFile: /etc/mongod.key

How to install correctly Sametime Community over Domino 11.0.1 FP3 on linux

 During last weeks I'm working mostly on HCL Sametime preparing some meetings environments.

After the release of the 11.6 we have noted the server wasn't able to start if installed after FP3 of Domino 11.0.1.

The issue is similar to the Traveler issue , but we have fixed it in this way:

  1. Domino 11.0.1 install
  2. Fp3 install
  3. Rename 2 libraries inside /opt/hcl/domino/notes/latest/linux 
  4. mv 
  5. mv
  6. Install Community 11.6
