Extremely frustrating problem with Domino Directory "Global Domain" document - Causes you to waste hours looking for the problem

By Andrew Pollack on 07/02/2008 at 04:13 PM EDT

Do you see anything wrong with this?

I'll give you a hint: The server accepts mail for three of the four listed domains just fine. The fourth one fails.



Why does it fail? Because there is a SPACE character after the end of the the domain "thisoneisbroken.com "

Unlike the "Members" field on the "Group" form, which has a translation formula as so: @Trim(@Unique(Members))

The "LocalInternetDomainAliases" field on the "Domain" form has no translation formula. If you have a space there (from copying a domain name for example) it will be kept as part of the string. As a result, your SMTP server will bounce mail sent to that domain while you spend hours looking for why.

Have a nice day.

Wow nice. Same I had with Configuration and SMTP Inbound connections:

[10.130.2.88]{space}
[10.140.2.81]

.. then the second IP can not connect...

we have came cross another frustrating situation, where one of our clients had
Domino Directory (names.nsf) updated with localized language template. In there
there was a mistake which was saving "translated text" into item
GlobalDomainTask instead of appropriate "SMTP" on the domain document. hence
domino would not recognize it as a valid global domain document and rejected
mail for all domain aliases as 554 Relay denied.

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
