IBM Notes and Domino 9.0.1 Feature pack 10 will be available during this week on fixcentral

Some minutes ago i've read a great tweet from Barry Rosen that was announcing the release of Feature pack 10 later this week on IBM Fixcentral.

This is a huge news because the feature pack 10 could be , in my opinion, the most important feature pack ever released :-) :

This will be some of the most important new features:
  • The JVM in Designer is Upgraded to use 1.8 at compile time
  • Eclipse Platform Upgraded to 4.6.2
  • Embedded Sametime Upgraded To 901 By Default 
  • The GSKit libraries are upgraded to Version 8.0.50.84 for both client & server. GSKit is used for FIPs support, AES , 1024+ RSA, and Diffie-Hellman.
  • Add-on Installer for Notes CCM (Connections Content Manager) 
IBM Domino 9.0.1 FP10 will introduce also Docker as supported platform  !

WebSphere Application server: how reset a password from file registry using wsadmin

Sometimes it happens.. I had to login to a WebSpere DMGR but the password of the local administrator wasn't working as expected and there wasn't LDAP configured.

One of the easy way you have to get back your Cell is reset the password of the local admin using wsadmin

  • open a command promp on  dmgr profile bin
  • wsadmin -conntype NONE
  • $AdminTask changeFileRegistryAccountPassword {-userId waslocal -password ab12c34de}
  • $AdminTask change

Restart the JVM and you will be able to login with your waslocal userId and ab12c34de password. After this task perform a syncNode on every Node to synchronize this change.

If you need more details please read this wiki page.
