Known issues with Domino 9.0.1 FP9

A couple of customers and partners asked me about current known issues with FP9 in my blog and offline.
Beside the issue with the garbage chars fixed in IF1 there are 3 other issues that could prevent you from upgrading to FP9.

There is an issue with private on first use views and folders on the server side which prevents those views and folders to be created.

IBM has a hotfix for this as Sascha already reported in my blog comments.

SPR# JVEKAQSGCC / LO92948: SHARED, PRIVATE ON FIRST USE FOLDER NOT WORKING AS EXPECTED IN 9.0.1 FP9. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO VIEW THE FOLDER IN DESIGNER

In addition some customers ran into a hang during view update with DBMT where IBM is working on a solution. One customer already got a test hotfix but I have no confirmed status yet if this finally solved the regression.

SPR TDOOAREP8W Performances issue with long held lock after update to Domino 9.0.1 FP9


IMHO both SPRs are good candidates for an IF2.


I keep you posted what I hear.

"3 other issues" or "both" :)

I've seen this problem with FP9 and java agents and xpages

Have the conditions under which a hang occurs been identified? I ask because I've not seen it yet, and I'm wondering if there are specific conditions under which the hang appears other than a view update.

I can confirm that the DBMT is an issue and have been actively trying to get an update from IBM. Basically, the DBMT and Indexer processes seem to be tying up CPU resources (initially we were asked to increase CPUs to resolve).

We're also seeing Full Text Indexes not being updated, most likely due to the DBMT issues as well...

We have not been issued the HF for testing, but definitely think both items should be addressed in the next HF.

IF2 is available since yesterday and according to the fix list both issues (and two more) should be fixed.

In response to a PMR we raised this morning for one of our mail servers (9.0.1 FP9 IF1 on AIX 7.1), IBM Support confirmed that the data we sent them showed a lot of Long Held Locks, but also "Deadlock Detected" messages. Support stated that this a known issue on Domino 9.0.1 FP9 which is fixed in IF2 for FP9, and quoted SPR TDOOAREP8W Performances issue with long held lock after update to Domino 9.0.1 FP9

We plan to apply IF2 this weekend.
