SLES 12 support added in 9.0.1 FP3 IF1

There is a new section that you should note and regularly check:
This section will provide important updates to the fixlist.

In this case the support for SLES 12 with 9.0.1 FP3 IF1! WOW! That was a fast response!  Normally new major OS versions have to wait at least for a dot release! THANKS!!!

As posted before there was a technical issue with restricted ports because bindsock did not work any more because of kernel changes in SLES 12.

IBM and Novell worked on this and found a solution.

Beginning with IBM Domino 9.0.1 FP3 IF1, the IBM Domino Server is supported on SLES12. This interim fix included a fix for the following issue:
YXYX9RA56Z HTTP server can't be started with "Error - Unable to Bind port 443 or 80" on SUSE12

With the fix that made it into IF1 IBM is now supporting SLES 12 in the same way they support REHL 7!

RHEL 7 and SLES 12 are both using "systemd" which replaces the Linux init (rc scripts).
I got already a couple of questions about systemd support and I am currently working on a version of my start script that supports systemd.

It looks like it will be an additional service file in combination with some changes to the rc_domino script and also rc_domino_script as well.
systemd works completely different but I think I am on a good way adding support for it.

Just installed Domino 9.0.1 FP8 on a SLES 12 SP2 and I had this problem.
