New Traveler 9 Console Commands

There’s a couple of new commands available when you issue a “tell traveler” from the Domino console in Traveler 9, that I haven’t seen documented elsewhere, namely:

tell traveler cleanup and tell traveler netaddr

 “tell traveler cleanup” is designed to force the removal of users that haven’t connected since the allocated cleanup period, [based on what is in the Server Document for the Traveler server, “IBM Traveler” Tab,  “User Cleanup Timeout” field (default is 30 days)].  Note that this should happen automatically with the server in the background.

From running “tell traveler cleanup help” we can see the usage information as follows:

Usage: tell traveler Cleanup <option>

Where <option> includes:

  •   Users – Remove all devices where the last sync time is older than the user cleanup timeout.
  •   Bind – Clean up BIND table entries for unknown server

Running the command without a switch runs both Users and Bind command.

“tell traveler netaddr” tells you which network interfaces are available to Traveler and also. as importantly, which network interface it is  actually using.  I’d imagine this would be a great resource during a migration to new hardware/OS.

From running “tell traveler netaddr” we see the usage information as follows:

(ip address being used is pixelated obviously!)

Let us know if you’ve found this useful or if you’d like any advice on a Traveler 9 deployment!
