Introducing consoleEZ

Introducing consoleEZ

00:37:55 MIN

The command center for multiple IBM Domino consoles

Your Domino servers are constantly talking (sometimes shouting) to you, but do you really have the means to listen? Unfortunately, relying on the native IBM console only lets you access one server at a time. Even then it’s hard to find what you’re looking for since events like mail routing and replication tend to eat up your console space.

Ytria's consoleEZ lends you an ear to the ground (with selective hearing too!) when it comes to all your servers.

It’s the newest addition to the EZ Suite of software tools for IBM Notes and Domino administrators and developers, and it will change your relationship with your servers. With access to multiple consoles in one place, you can monitor what’s going on with a global dashboard, various filters and log analyzers, and even send out commands.

Replication fundamentals through customer examples

Replication fundamentals through customer examples

00:59:02 MIN

A replicationEZ masterclass webcast

Managing replication across several IBM Domino servers can be overwhelming and may result in limiting oneself to reactive measures. As administrators, we need to establish a pro-active protocol to ensure that everything is setup correctly in order to prevent as many issues as possible. Managing replication is critical to administering any domino environment, where erroneous replication results in significant cost for the organization and confusion for the user.

In this presentation, we will focus on practical solutions for scenarios encountered at customer sites.

Managing replication across several IBM Domino servers can be overwhelming and may result in limiting oneself to reactive measures. As administrators, we need to establish a pro-active protocol to ensure that everything is setup correctly in order to prevent as many issues as possible. Managing replication is critical to administering any domino environment, where erroneous replication results in significant cost for the organization and confusion for the user.

In this presentation, we will focus on practical solutions using the latest features of replicationEZ and other Ytria tools for scenarios encountered at customer sites. Through these, you’ll learn how to discover issues, understand why they occurred, resolve ensuing problems, and prevent future ones from arising:

  • Ensure your replicas are in sync and immediately find critical inconsistencies.
  • Differentiate between different classes of inconsistencies and learn what to do about them.
  • Find out what the actual differences are between your replicas.
  • Understand why these problems happened in the first place and resolve them.
  • Track documents to understand where they came from and see your replication setup working (or not!) from your documents’ reference point.
  • Get a unique overview of the nature of replication for all replicas of a given database and learn to quickly find where it may have gone wrong.
  • Trace problems back to a faulty setup, understand where it went wrong, and correct it.
    Get a deep overview of connection documents to understand what will happen to your databases when replication occurs.
  • Learn to use the graphical charts generated from actual replication history entries.
  • And more!
