Issues regarding Attachment Handling for IBM Notes Traveler 9.0.1 IF6

 19 September 2014 11:46:21
Yesterday and today customers contacted me, that there are some issues regarding IBM Notes Traveler and iOS8/Android after upgrading to Traveler 9.0.1 IF6.

It looks like Attachements with special characters like Space, '+' or '&' in the file name can not be loaded by the Device
and the CPU load on the Traveler server is unnormal high.

You will see this log entries:

We opened PMRs and are waiting for a response from IBM.
Will post an update here.

Update 26.09.2014 I:

Got feedback from IBM:

"We have PMRs open and some APARs in the works for the attachments already.  People should continue to open PMRs   ...  It will be at least a few weeks, but probably mid-October ...."

So-  If you have issues, open a PMR, please. You will get a Hotfix.

Update 26.09.2014 II:

IBM published an official Technote. You can get a special hotfix via PMR by request!

Update 07.11.2014 III:

Today IBM published a new Interim Fix! Details can be found here
