Apple Mojave and IBM Notes 9.0.1

If you have trouble installing Notes 9.0.1 on Mojave with the installer erroring with

“File /Applications/ not found. Provisioning process failed to launch or was terminated before status could be determined.”

a very quick reminder for this error that occured first on the APFS file system using High Sierra – make sure you have downloaded the 9.0.1 installer from March 9th this year (passport advantage code CNQY7EN) and not the original one from 2015.  The one from March will install correctly and then let you install the IF16 fix  (901IF16) from IBM Fix Central that was released on September 24th on top to support Mojave.

If you already had Notes installed prior to upgrading to Mojave the IF16 fix installed on top should just work, this is primarily for new installs.

I would suggest going ahead and get rid of your 2015 9.0.1 client installers and get the new 2018 one in place just to be safe

  1. Noticed the following on multiple Macs, even new Macs with no previous software.
    – Java must be at Java 8 Update 181. Otherwise you may receive an error such as “The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its companion launcher jar.”
    – IBM Notes client causes the entire MacBook to lag, when this setting is enabled: System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility. When it is disabled, the problem is immediately resolved.
    – Otherwise the IBM Notes client is stable on macOS Majave. Release 9.0.1 (64-bit) SHF993.
    Case number: TS001414334

  2. The IBM FixCentral page tells me that it cannot find Notes_901IF16_MAC64_Standard even though it shows it was released 9-21-18 and the IBM support page shows it. Any idaeas? When I open Notes on my MacBook and sign in it closes right away.

  3. Do you find that even with the IF16 loaded Notes is dog slow to load? Once it loads if seem ok, but it can take 5 minutes to launch and I’ve got a 3.1 GHz i7 with SSD.

    • Honestly no. I launch it multiple times a day and it takes seconds for me. No quicker or slower that High Sierra version.

      • Took the time to run the Uninstall (notes.pkg) rebooted machine, installed from CNQY7EN, and IF 16. Seems to have fixed the problem. Now it loads in under a minute and runs great.

  4. DOes anyone have issues with after loading mojave and the proper 9.0.1 and IF16 that it will just flash on the screen and nothing else
