A new Domino Directory template (pubnames.ntf) for Domino 9.0.1 is now available.

This new template extends Holiday documents through years 2026 or 2027 and adds policy updates for Traveler and IBM mail support for Microsoft Outlook (IMSMO).

For details on the updates and download information, please see the technote linked below.

Hint: The default holidays documents IBM is distributing with the 9.0.1 pubnames.ntf (Domino Directory) will end this year 2016. If you want to have default holiday entries next year. Take a look at the new pubnames.ntf.

A new pubnames.ntf for Domino 9.0.1 is now available that includes the following updates:
  • Holiday documents that have been extended another 10 years through 2026 or 2027 depending on the holiday.
  • Policy update for Traveler servers that allows admins to remove the device password requirement for Traveler devices. Hybrid customers will be able to override the default that says you must have a device password.
  • Policy update for IMSMO cloud and on-premises servers that allows more granular control of auto-processing notices. Now you can choose whether to skip processing of meeting notices that have pending reschedules. In the cloud, this new setting is enforced/enabled regardless of the policy setting selected on-premises.

Is this new template available in non-English versions?

No. Full localization is being worked for Domino 9.0.1 Feature Pack 8

Should admins delete the prior holidays before importing these new ones?

No. The updated holidays include the original start dates but extend into either year 2026 or year 2027 depending on the holiday. The holidays will not be duplicated but instead extended; therefore, users will see the past and future holiday dates.
