Lotus Notes Traveler 8.5.3.1 does the trick

November 19, 2011

I have been running a Domino server (Windows 2008) with Domino 8.5.3 and Traveler 8.5.2.4 because the installer for Traveler 8.5.3 just would not complete, despite several troubleshooting suggestions from IBM support. It was stable after going to Traveler 8.5.2.4 but still odd that the newer version wouldn’t install.

Last week IBM released Traveler 8.5.3.1. I tried that installer and, low and behold, it installed in about 30 seconds as you would expect. Domino did crash when I tried to restart it without rebooting the server, reporting it found memory in use from a previous instance of Domino. But after restarting the server all seems well.

That’s my experience. Hope it helps someone.

    I never tried taking Domino back to 8.5.2.x, only different versions of Traveler. Traveler 8.5.2.4 seemed to run fine, so that might be an option if you need Domino 8.5.3. I would open a PMR with IBM if that’s an option for you.
