iNotes broken with German locale with 9.0.1 FP7

Today I got a customer question about iNotes not working for him after updating to FP7.
I can reproduce the issue on my Linux machine. Apparently something went wrong with the German locale. Reports show that the English locale should work fine.


Also one of my customers forwarded me a IBM L1 support response for a different question which stated that if iNotes does not work with FP7 they should restore the FP6 Forms9.nsf databases.

They got that info without any further information.


I have shutdown my server and replaced the files with the backup copies on my server and started the server again.


cd /local/notesdata/iNotes
cp /opt/ibm/domino/notes/latest/linux/data1_bck/901FP6/localnotesdataiNotes/Forms9.nsf .

cp /opt/ibm/domino/notes/latest/linux/data1_bck/901FP6/localnotesdataiNotes/Forms9s.nsf .



The issue already occurs when you first launch iNotes. See the formula error screen below.


I keep you posted what I hear.



Update: There is a IF for this issue that replaces forms9.nsf

I think Ulrich tweeted about this same problem. Not sure if he found a fix, you might want to check with him though.

good Luck!

SPR # MBLTADSK8M / LO90227

Replacing the files with pre FP7 is a workaround.

Sorry if I wasn't clear about restoring the older FP6 iNotes forms. Of course this is a work-around until the bug is fixed.

Ulrich opened a PMR for that and got the SPR already. Thanks Urlich!

Hi Daniel,

the files need to be copied to data/iNotes, not data, so it must read

cd /local/notesdata/iNotes

Regards, Friedhelm

For me it only worked again after not only replacing forms9.nsf but also replacing dwa9W.dll
