Domino Community Image - New Nomad Server install option  

By Daniel Nashed | 7/30/22 10:22 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

The Nomad server is a new offering to directly add Nomad support to your Domino server instead of using a SafeLinx server. Recently I added a SafeLinx container to the Domino community project. Now I am adding the Nomad Server to the Domino image as a new build options.

Domino Container automation testing  

By Daniel Nashed | 7/25/22 12:20 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Containers are not only a good way to run Domino. It is also the perfect environment for automation testing. Domino 12 introduced OneTouch Setup to automate deployments, which also lets you create reproducible Domino test server scenarios. As a starting point I am building an automation test for the Domino image itself. So in future for every commit on the Git repository I can run automation to ensure the image works. The test automation can be used in your own environment as well after an image built in your environment. It can be also be extended for your own application testing.

Customizing Domino Backup mail notifications  

By Daniel Nashed | 7/22/22 6:42 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Domino Backup offers to send e-mails depending on the status of your backup. By default you are getting an e-mail in case of error or warning. I am rarely getting error messages from my servers. In this case here I updated my server to a new kernel and ZFS drivers failed to build.

Nomad Server 12.0.2 on Linux just works  

By Daniel Nashed | 7/20/22 10:32 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

The Nomad Server is a small component, you install on your Domino server. And it is bundled with the Nomad Web files. So it is a all-in one server add-on solution. The installation sounds more complicated then it is. It's really simple to install. And I am thinking about making it an install option for the Domino community container image.

Why run Domino in a container today  

By Daniel Nashed | 7/20/22 2:03 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

As my of you know, I am a big fan of running Domino and other applications in a container. This can be a classical Docker/Podman deployment or K8s. Containers might not be good for everyone. But a lot of software is available in a "Docker image", which can run in multiple environments. Domino's main deployment model will not change to Docker.

Domino 12 Restore point in time  

By Daniel Nashed | 7/15/22 1:23 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Domino Backup can restore databases point in time! For other backup applications this functionality is usually only available with archive transaction log. But with circular translog or linear translog mode, the most current backup should have all the translogs available to recover point in time as well. Domino Restore allows you to restore point in time in that case. Even it is not guaranteed that the translogs are still there, this can be still a good configuration if you have servers without dramatic load.

Linux shell scripts: Difference between "set" and "env" -- fixed the Domino start script  

By Daniel Nashed | 7/11/22 4:28 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

The Domino start script has always been using "set" to list the environment variables, before running the sever. This information can be important to understand the environment passed to your Domino server at start-up. It turns out that there had been a change over time, which causes much more information to be listed, then just the environment variables.
