How to pass a Domino V12 OneTouch JSON to your pod or container  

By Daniel Nashed | 5/3/21 2:24 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

For Docker it is quite easy to pass the JSON file. You just add another volume into a known location. When using Kubernetes you can either pass data via screts or better juse a ConfigMap for your JSON file.

VMware PhotonOS -- Very efficient Container Linux OS   

By Daniel Nashed | 4/30/21 1:38 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Today in a customer meeting one of the admins mentioned Photon OS. I never looked into it in detail. But if you are running Docker containers on VMware this could be a good choice for the host OS running on VMware. One of the installation options is a "Lightweight Container Host" VMware says: "Photon OS delivers just enough of a Linux operating system to efficiently run containers on" And from what I saw this is really the case! Plus it is very simple to install. I have tested it as a container host. It comes with Docker 19.03.15. That's not the latest but a good and stable version.

By Daniel Nashed | 4/27/21 3:08 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

Domino V12 will introduce One Touch Setup. It's much more than just a basic server setup. You can use it to modify and create documents. Create databases and more. For a container workshop I looked into a more complex example showing how this could look like in production environments.

Last Time updating my SSL Certificate using a KYR file  

By Daniel Nashed | 4/27/21 2:24 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

I am using Domino V12 CertMgr for a while with my own custom export logic for the kyr file. The kyr file export in Domino V12 CertMgr was only available until the new crypto to protect the private key was added. You can't export keys today. But you can import keys. So here is a quick step by step instruction how to user CertMgr today with kyr files. Looks complicated. But with native Domino V12 it will be very very easy soon. But this is how you could leverage it today on Domino V12 servers.

Containers are all about automation -- Ansible is a great tool as well  

By Daniel Nashed | 4/26/21 2:51 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

One of the most important aspects about containers and images, is that the environment is always the way you define it. You can run the same changes first in a test/integration environment and apply it exactly in production on many environment. It's also about standardization and making installations and updates easier.

By Daniel Nashed | 4/26/21 2:50 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Starting with the first Domino V12 code drop we already looked into optimizing our Domino Community image, replacing functionality introduced into Domino V12 native -- not even just for containers.

Domino Unix Start Script Tip: debug logs  

By Daniel Nashed | 4/15/21 5:22 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Roberto Boccadoro

Maybe I should start writing up tips for some not so well known function in the Domino start script for Linux & Unix .. I implemented some of the functionality just for my own convenience :-) For example when you want to debug an issue. just run "domino archivelog" once to archive your current logs into a zip.
