Lotus Notes & Domino 8.5.3 Fix Pack 6

Notes/Domino 8.5.3 Fix Pack 6 is the last scheduled Fix Pack for 8.5.3. 

IBM strongly recommends that customers running Notes/Domino 8.5.3 upgrade to this latest Fix Pack since it addresses a small percentage of defects that impact the broadest set of customers.


Platform Support added in 8.5.3 FP6:
• Windows 2012 R2

Platform support still under review:
• Support for Windows 8.1, Mac 10.9, and IE 11 are still under review. This notice will be updated shortly.

Notes/Domino 8.5.3 Fix Pack 6 addresses defects in both the Client and Server. All Fix Packs are language independent and may be applied on any language version of Notes/Domino 8.5.3.

NOTE: The installer for Domino Interim Fixes (hotfixes) built 9 July 2012 or later requires a Perl 5.6.0 or later distribution on Unix & Linux platforms. For details, see technote 1600910

Decision to upgrade
Customers unable to upgrade to later Releases should install Fix Packs to benefit from later fixes made to the product.

Fixes contained in this Fix Pack
What follows is a subset of the most important issues addressed in this fix pack.

Client

  • SPR# TSHI8SD538(LO68047) - Fixed an intermittent Notes client crash when opening a corrupted Notes document.
  • +SPR# MLAT99RKAG(LO76668) - Improved javascript disablement and disabled for HTML Email messages (body field and memo form) only. This regression was introduced in 8.5.3 FP5.
  • SPR# ACHG8STC6T(LO68380) - Fixes intermittent Notes Client crash when the user hits "send" on a large email (also the email is lost).
  • SPR# MCHZ8R4HPK(LO67040) - "Search Directory For" results in Typeahead are displayed in Alphabetical Order. (technote 1580001)


Server

  • SPR# KBRN8Q6JXC(LO71360) - Performance and reliability fix to network session code. Prior to this fix, many users accessing a Domino server simultaneously could cause a performance bottleneck resulting in slow server response or timeouts attempting to connect to the server. The error 'Unable to redirect failover from ' could also appear where SERVERNAME is the same name of the server encountering the issue.
  • SPR# JPAI94HR3N(LO75003) - Fixes potential deadlock on process startup between LkMgr locker and semaphore locker(Directory manager queue semaphore). (technote 1644240)
  • SPR# MYAA8LV385(LO64012) - Fixes an issue where an incorrect warning for a database over quota threshold could be generated.
  • +SPR# RMAA94WKMG(LO73956) - Fixes intermittent Domino Server crash when closing a database. This regression was introduced in 8.5.2. (technote 1644232)
  • SPR# VPRS8YBRZ6(LO71728) - Fixes Domino Server mail relay host crash on router on Jonah::asn_sorted::encode_value
  • +SPR# AJMO8NVM8F(LO66491) - Prevent Directory Assistance on Domino 64-bit servers from doing unnecessary search references and referrals which were leading to "81" LDAP timeout errors. This regression was introduced in 8.5.
  • SPR# JPMS8KZLLC(LO63217) - Fixes Domino Server crash during database cache maintenance with PANIC: ERROR - LockMemHandle() Handle 0xF0259F47 is not allocated
  • SPR# PPET98CPBN(LO7562) - Security enhancement to scrub query strings causing search to fail; work around is to add the following notes.ini: HTTP_QUERY_STRING_SCRUB=0. This fix changes the default to be off instead of being on and adds new code to prevent security X-Site script attacks against search urls.
  • SPR# AJAS8WSB9B(LO70861) - Prior to this fix multiple "Received" headers could be overwritten by one when retrieving e-Mails with IMAP client.
  • SPR# KHAN87ZUTS(LO55991) - Prevents excessive InsertPermutations recursion that can lead to a Domino Server crash. The new notes.ini variable MAX_PERMUTE_RECURSE=, where limits the number of hierarchical responses that can be added to a given collection, is recommended to be set to 200. (technote 1600317)
  • +SPR# PHEY8UDJYW(LO65911) - Fixes ACL corruption with: "ACL Corrupt in database creating new ACL with default set to no access". Now we block unintended deletion of ACL Note that would leave to a DB set to no access. This was a regression introduced in 8.5.3.


iNotes

  • SPR# WRAY8QKLTQ(LO66604) - Fixed issue where when opening messages in iNotes Ultra Light Mode, that have mixed case mail file names specified in the URL, the mail message fails to open.
  • SPR# KRAU8Y2MX6(LO71593) - Fixes issue where the iNotes UI window shrinks to a small size when the iNotes UI is resized several times.
  • SPR# HKOA7T4DN5(LO49113) - Notes web: Fixed an issue where the web browser could hang if a window is resized to or from a very small size.
  • SPR# PTHN96NRTP(LO45468) - Notes web: Fixed an issue where the unread count on a folder is not updated automatically when new messages were transferred into it via a mail rule. Clicking on the folder or using F5 to refresh would update the count.
  • +SPR# HSKM8TN39T(LO68949) - Fixed problem which caused a custom sized table to be inserted in the wrong place in the Rich Text Editor. This is a regression in 8.5.3.
