Lotus Notes on Mac OS change column sorting broken on second display

A few days ago a colleague asked me, why i use Notes only on my main display of the Macbook Pro. I didn’t remember the reason, but today i discovered it again.

When i move my Notes Client window (8.5.3) on the second display, i can’t use column sorting when clicking on the column header. Then i moved the window bar (File, Edit, …) of Mac OS X (Lion) on the external monitor too and … I’m able to sort my inbox, when i click on the column header (like subject, date and so on).

I played around a little bit and tested some other Mac OS Clients in the office and i can reproduce it. Only on displays with the windowbar i can change sorting, when i click on the column header.


IBM acknowledged the problem: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21584595&myns=swglotus&mynp=OCSSKTWP&mync=R

Notes Client 8.5.3 and Domino-SSO for Connections Plugins

In only two weeks starts LCTY Edcom Nachlese 2012 in Munich.

I prepare a session on Single Sign On in Notes / Domino environments.

So i had time to check some settings in Lotus Notes. Since 8.5.3 we have a new option Domino-SSO for Connections Plugin.

Preference Settings Lotus Notes 8.5.3

I made several tests with my installed Notes Client on Mac OS, but i had no success. I tested with several settings in the preferences dialog and with different settings in plugin_customization.ini.

I had one configuration where i can use Sametime Tokenbased Login and leave “Domino Single Sign-On Server” empty in connections preferences, but this works only with running Notes Client and i had to apply the setting again after restart the client.

Now i deleted the Expeditor folder in my Notes Data to reconfigure the client. What should i say? The SSO-Server works now. I had to use the hierarchical Domino server name. It would be interesting, which technique is used here, because the Domino and Connections Server are in different domains, so it is no LTPA SSO.


Only a short add-on. It is LTPA SSO, but i think domain from Web SSO document gets applied.

PacLug – Two Minutes Drills Slides

Ted Hardenburgh gave a session on Paclug on “Two Minutes Drills“. I found some good hints in his slides and can recommend it for all Lotus Domino Administrators.
