Domino on the IBM i (iSeries) IS supported!
I received an email today from one of my customers inquiring about this blog post: http://domino.elfworld.org/ibm-connect-2017-3-i-ve-seen-the-future-of-domino-and-it-is-sapho/
Their question to me was:
“Just a quick question, I was reading posts about Connection 2017 and came across this about halfway down.
No more Notes client for Linux beyond 9.0.1 FP 7
32 bit droppet for AIX and Linux servers
No more Domino for iSeries
Is this true?”
I was at IBM Connect and had not heard this message and had previously been told that Domino on the IBM i would be supported along with all other currently supported platforms. As a result, I reached out to Barry Rosen, the Offering Manager for IBM Collaboration Solutions. He confirmed that Domino on the IBM i IS indeed supported. He also posted the following comment on the blog post (thank you Barry!)
and the blog post has been updated to remove this statement (thank you Hogne).
The IBM Domino roadmap https://www.ibm.com/blogs/social-business/2016/09/12/ibm-notes-domino-v9-extends-support/ states “IBM Notes and Domino V9.0.1 is extending support through at least 2021”. In my correspondences with Barry last October, I also received this statement in an email from Mr. Rosen that clearly states Domino on the IBM i is supported:
“Domino 9.0.1 on IBM i will be supported through at least 2021. All current supported platforms will be supported through at least 2021.”
As I told my customer, rest assured, Domino on IBM i is fully supported, along with all feature packs.
