This week starts with Admincamp in Gelsenkirchen. Thanks Rudi Knegt and team for this awesome event! The conference or lets name it camp was real fun. In the end I did three sessions and a workshop. You can find download links to all slides and used files in this article or on https://stoeps.de/speaking/2018/. I learned and heared a lot of interesting stuff around IBM Notes, IBM Connections and Sametime. You can get most of the session slides through the Admincamp agenda. Save the date! Next https://admincamp.de will take place from 25. to 27. March 2019 here in Gelsenkirchen. Here can you find my session slides (all talks were held in english), but maybe you can run them through deepl or Google Translate.

During my talk at FrOSCon I wasn’t sure how to install Asciidoctor on Windows. So I tried on a Windows 10 VM. When you want to use Asciidoctor on a Windows desktop, you need to download the Rubyinstaller and install it. Now you can open a administrative command window and install with gem install asciidoctor. Let’s test with an easy document: test.adoc = Test Asciidoctor on Windows :icons: font == Admonition NOTE: Will this work? TIP: Convert with `asciidoctor test.adoc` Update I had a typo in the conversion command, you can still see it in the screenshot.

Today I learned a new lesson during troubleshooting a IBM Connections System. I updated to 6.0 CR2, updated WebSphere to FP13, last fixpack for Docs and so on. You will ask if I added IFP88438 to the list, be sure that I installed this fix which reanables the root element in Federated Repositories. Have a look at WAS 8.5.5 FP12 breaks Domino "root" base entry setting for more details. Then one of the two deployments showed strange behavior with Activities. On the Activitystream I only got an orange error symbol instead of the Todo list and when I opened Activities directly I got an empty page.
