Some other things about Domino and Notes 9.0.1 FP5

Today IBM has released more details and clarifications about new FP5 for Domino and Notes 9.0.1.

  • IBM Notes Mac - IBM Notes Mac 9.0.1 FP5 32-bit is superseded by Mac 9.0.1 64-bit. Customers looking for Notes Mac client 9.0.1 32-bit are encouraged instead to download and install Notes 9.0.1 Mac 64-bit. Download links can be found in this document: Supportability Q&A about IBM Notes and OS X 10.11.x
  • Windows 10 - 9.0.1 FP5 adds support for IBM Client Application Access and the Notes Browser Plug-in. Notes/iNotes added this support for 9.0.1 FP4. For more info, see this technote Supportability Q&A about Notes and Windows 10.


  • 9.0.1 Fix Pack 5 updates the embedded Notes/Domino JVM to 1.6 SR16 FP15 to address security vulnerabilities.
  • 9.0.1 Fix Pack 5 adds support for IE Standards Mode for iNotes. An optional Forms9s.nsf for IE 11 Standard mode has been added in 9.0.1 FP5. 9.0.1 FP5 installs a secondary iNotes client file on the Domino server named Forms9s.nsf. This file is an optional solution to "Quirks Mode". Quirks mode was a run time option first introduced in IE 8 to provide backward compatibility for programs such as iNotes but can cause some limitations running in newer versions of IE such as IE11. Forms9s.nsf removes quirks mode and runs in Standard mode. This is off by default and can be enabled via setting these in the Domino server notes.ini

FP5 is already available on Fixcentral and will be released from passport advantage  starting December 7, 2015 with following partnumber:

Notes Standard w32 CN7ENEN
Notes Linux Deb CN7EQEN
Notes Linux RPM CN7EPEN

Domino Win32 CN7ETEN
Domino Win64 CN7EUEN
Domino Lnx32 CN7EVEN
Domino Lnx64 CN7EWEN

All other partnumber and download options could be found here.

Below the  Top20 fix:

  • CSMH9QHKNF (LO83744) - Fixes issue where the incorrect font is used after installing additional True Type fonts in Notes 9. The fix requires the new notes.ini variable "UseWindowsFontSubstituteFontList" be set to the font or fonts that are to be used. This is a regression in 9.0.1.
  • HHIE9RTARJ (LO83155) - Avoids a Notes Client crash opening a document with a graphic image containing invalid dimensions. This defensive fix will avoid the crash.
  • ADEE9UCDQ2 (LO84117) - Fixes issue that could result in duplicate INI parameters for cases where the notes ini exceeds 64 bytes
  • DSAS9HBTVQ (LO79576) - Under certain conditions, the Dircat task treats a rare but routine error "Directory cataloger was unable to obtain any scheduling information" as fatal and shuts down. This fix resolves this.
  • QMGO9YXDML (LO85873) - Fixes issue where Notes fixpack ignores the custom common data setting and installs to the default common data dir causing a 1603 install error
  • SRKM9NFF7B (LO81786) - Attempts to install a Notes 9.0.1 Fix Pack fail. The install/upgrade log shows the following error: "Installation success or error status: 1603". This is a regression in 9.0.1 FP1.
  • XXZZ9JN999 (LO81356) - Fixes a cross platform crash opening emails with certain objects in them. This issue was more common on Notes Client Mac 10.9.

  • RMAS9GATPK (LO81820) - The maximum NSF Pool size is hard coded by default. This fix introduces a new INI parameter to set the maximum size of the NSF Pool at runtime. Add MAX_NSFPOOL_SIZE=[new size in bytes] to set the size of the NSF Pool. Use MAX_NSFPOOL_SIZE_MB to set the size in MB instead. Note that the size cannot be set smaller than the current default maximum of 512 MB.
  • RGAU8ZRLKH (LO72483) - Fixes Domino Server crash when an xPage application with a large view is accessed and hitting last page of that largeview with the notes.ini variable Ft_max_search_results=99999999 set.
  • TMAI9YNHCD (LO85763) - Fixes issue where the return value of the len function in Lotusscript is invalid on 9.0.1 FP4. This fix was a regression caused by 9.0.1 FP4 SPR JMDK9MA6EJ. This fix reverts the fix for SPR JMDK9MA6EJ.
  • PJON9UBQMR (LO84113) - Fixes issue where Diiop connections over SSL Fail If SSLv3 is disabled. (technote 1968912)
  • SVRO9UZRQC (LO85045)- ISpy (runjava) fails to connect if SSLv3 is disabled because it was using an older SSL stack. It has been updated to a newer SSL stack that supports TLS (technote 1700925)
  • WBJT9X63VT (LO85208) - Chinese characters display incorrectly when an event is created via the Calendar service Restful API
  • YDEN9GYKRR (LO79426) - Fixes issue where user receives error: "Invalid URL exception and HTTP 500 Internal server error" when accessing a URL that contains a colon in the start and stop parameters in a URL. We now allow additional characters for 'start' and 'count' in a URL. This was a regression introduced in 9.0.
  • MKIN9BGTMX (LO77050) - Fixes a recursion crash when out of OSLocal memory. Symptoms included having http disappear without the creation of an nsd. (technote 1682289)

  • GKLA9WVTH9 (LO85136) - Fixes issue on Mac and Linux where when using operating system timezone events viewed with calendar views display 3 hours early in the calendar view. This is a regression in 9.0.
  • SVRO9YLM35 (LO85733) - Fixes an HTTP Crash with iNotes in MAXSPRINTF due to a null pointer caused by incorrect permissions on Dojo files (technote 1964549)
  • CKUA9HSABG (LO79874) - Notes web: Fixed an issue where email links were not resolving properly when clicked.
  • MLEY9MVG34 (LO81588) - When using iNotes with Internet Explorer, blank lines in a user's signature are deleted. This is a regression in 9.0.1.
  • RFRF9CCARU (LO77404) - Notes web: Fixed an issue where replying to all from a message in the sent view using Internet Explorer 10 would result in swapping the contents of the "To" and the "cc" fields.
  • MLEY9TMGPF (LO83786) - Notes web: Fixed an issue with slow scrolling using the navigation arrows in the One Week/One Work week calendar views
