Sometimes it is necessary to get the OS from the user via Lotus Script. This can be done very easily:
I recently migrated a customer from Notes 8.5 to 8.5.3. The customer was a small shop so there backup solution was also very small. To help him to save some backup space I moved the "fulltext index" to another folder, which is excluded by the Backup software. This can be easily implemented.
I currently got some emails from admins out in the world which ask for help to troubleshoot a Notes 8.5.x roaming issue. They all explain the same situation: There is a user who logs into different computers almost every time and it seamed that is the issue why the roaming isn´t finished/completed (the Lotus Domino address book showed a sand clock all the time -> Roaming: In Progress for the person's record).
BM Lotus announces the release of Notes/Domino 8.5.3 Fix Pack 2, a scheduled Fix Pack of a limited number of low-risk, high-impact fixes to help customers safely avoid known issues.
