Error 217 - Error creating product object on Domino 64 bit

I'd like to share something with you.   An error that you'll get if you are trying to use ODBC with Domino 8.5.1 64bit.

It starts out with an agent error of Error 217.  The text of the error is "Error creating product object"

You can read about it here on the Notes/Domino forum.

You can find the solution here as well.

I guess I'm now waiting for Domino 8.5.2 for a solution for this.   It would have been nice to have had this in the release notes.  It would have help me greatly.

  1. Try Lotus Connectors, and you'll never go back to ODBC.

    Like comparing a 1985 Ford Escort (ODBC) to a 2010 BMW M5 (Lotus Connectors). They both transport things right?

  2. Thanks for the heads up. I have just started a pilot migration to Domino 8.5.1 FP3 64bit and we do use ODBC in a couple of applications. I think they'll have to get re-written to use OLEDB because I don't want to have to reinstall the server with the 32bit version.

  3. By the way the default install of Windows 2008 R2 server 64bit includes the 64bit OLEDB drivers. I was able to connect using the Lotus Connectors with the oledb connection without any other install of a MS SQL client.

Fun Little Earthquake

It's 1:45pm EST in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. We just had an earthquake.  Not strong enough to damage anything, but enough that I watched people run out of buildings. What a fun Wednesday.

Reminder: Increase the maximum available memory on your Lotus Notes client JVM today!

Yup, that's right.  Public Service Announcement time. If you haven't increased the maximum memory available to your Lotus Notes JVM yet, what are you waiting for? By default, the Notes JVM only has 256mb of memory available to it.  On a system with 4GB+ of memory, you should be easily able to increase it to 1/4 to 1/3 of the system memory and improve the end user performance. Here's how: Shut down Lotus Notes. In order to make sure that all processes are stopped, run this command:  Start -> Run Type: C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Lotus\Notes\nsd.exe -kill Open: C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Lotus\Notes\framework\rcp\deploy\ Open the "jvm.properties" file in a text editor like notepad.  You will possibly require Administrator permissions. At the beginning of the file, you will see text surrounded by a lot of pound signs ####. The first ‘property’ after the last # sign is: vmarg.Xmx=-Xmx256m Change 256m to 1024m so that the line reads: vmarg.X
