Introduction

Welcome to IBM Singapore!

This guide contains some important information on IT resources and services you would need to know and use in the course of conducting IBM businesses.

Your Laptop

On day 1 in IBM, you should have received an IBM Thinkpad or desktop assigned to you. Collection of machines is at the CBP Collection Desk at IBMP2 Level 4 Room F407, x5891.

This machine is an IBM asset under your custody, and you are fully responsible for it and the data contained within it. At collection time, you would have been directed by the staff at the desk to register your power-on and harddisk password. This is mandatory for protection of your data at all times.

Please take good care to protect this IBM asset and the information stored in the harddisk.

Loss of laptop should be reported to IBM Security Control Centre immediately via an email to Security/Singapore/IBM or call 6418- 4111, after filing a police report.

Upgrading Your Software

The laptop you received is preconfigured with IBM standard software for business use. This set of software is called C4EB (Client for e- Business). Installation of new software or version upgrade can be performed by accessing ISSI (IBM Standard Software Installer) World Page at

http://w3-1.ibm.com/download/standardsoftware/index.html

First-time use of ISSI requires a one-time setup. Please check the section “Setting up and using ISSI” in the page above.

Any software not listed in the ISSI for downloading means that it is not covered under IBM’s corporate licensing and you will need to procure a license for it first. You can contact procurement for instructions on how to procure a license for the software you require. Non-C4EB software procurement requires approval from your immediate manager. Never install unlicensed software or software without valid licenses on your IBM machine else you are violating the copyright laws!

Internal Standard For Document Exchange

IBM's internal standard for document exchange is the ODF (Open Document Format) and the tool of choice is Lotus Symphony, which is the tool that creates this file format. All thinkpads and desktops come preloaded with this software, which replaces its predecessor, Lotus Smartsuite.

Laptop & Security

Workstation Security Tool (WST)

All IBM laptops have a security tool installed. The tool is called WST (Workstation Security Tool). The tool allows you to check whether you laptop is adequately protected. In addition, your laptop is regularly checked for security compliance in the following areas:

Screen saver installed Symantec Antivirus software installed Symantec firewall installed Not allowed unauthenticated file sharing No peer-to-peer software installed Notes databases containing IBM confidential information are encrypted e.g. your mail file Microsoft Windows User Accounts are password protected Latest Windows Service Packs are applied Security patches are installed

When a violation is detected, a report is sent to your immediate manager automatically by the security server.

IBM Standard Asset management (ISAM) Registration

Your intranet id and password may not have been ready on the day you collected your thinkpad or desktop, so your machine may not have been registered in ISAM yet. Please ensure that you register it under your own name when your id and password are ready. You will be prompted to do so everytime you boot up your machine, until you register. To invoke ISAM, the ISAM icon is found on the bottom right hand corner of your screen.

Virus CERT

If your machine should get infected by a virus, you must immediately report this at the IBM Virus CERT website, http://w3-03.ibm.com/virus/ .

You should also call Helpdesk on x9200 to register a report of this incident immediately and to seek technical assistance to curb the virus quickly.

Your IBM IDs

Depending on your job role, you may be issued several personal IDs and passwords to access various applications. The key ones are listed below.

Lotus Notes ID - IBM worldwide use Lotus Notes as the primary means for email communications. Lotus Notes ID has the format of Lastname Initial Firstname/Singapore/IBM. Your Notes ID is stored in a file called shortname.ID in the subdirectory called C:/Notes/Data where shortname is your IBM Intranet ID. From time to time, you will be prompted to change your Lotus Notes password.

IBM Intranet ID – IBM has many web applications installed for IBMers to retrieve information. IBM websites containing sensitive

information require user to enter his/her intranet ID and password before they are allowed access. Intranet ID has the format of shortname@sg.ibm.com. This is also the the email ID you can use to communicate with external parties. Mails from external parties will be sent to your Lotus Notes ID.

To change or reset your IBM Intranet ID, please access

http://w3.ibm.com/password

AT&T Network Client ID – AT&T Network Client is a dialer which allows you to connect to IBM internal network when you are working away from the office e.g. from home, customer site or overseas hotel using broadband or narrowband connection.

To change your AT&T password :-

  • 1. Double click the AT&T Network Client globe icon on the desktop.

  • 2. Enter your password in the appropriate space unless you have selected Save password already.

  • 3. From the main screen, click the Globe in the upper left corner.Click Change Password.

information require user to enter his/her intranet ID and password before they are allowed access. Intranet
  • 4. If the Save Password check box was selected earlier, the current password will be grayed out, otherwise

enter the current password followed by the new password in the appropriate spaces. Confirm the new password and click OK.

Your Lotus Notes Tool

How to get to the Workspace

At the point when you collect your machine at the CBP Collecction Desk, the desk staff would most likely have helped to set your Lotus Notes to default to the Workspace, which is where you will find all your database icons. However, if this was not done, here’s how you get to the Workspace :-

1. Click on the 'database' icon on the left panel of your Notes Window.

2. Right click on the Workspace , select 'Set Bookmark as Home Page '. Note: In

2. Right click on the Workspace , select 'Set Bookmark as Home Page'.

2. Right click on the Workspace , select 'Set Bookmark as Home Page '. Note: In

Note: In near future, Notes database will be called Application in Notes environment.

Creating the Local Replica

We should always use the local replica of your mail database to access and process our emails, and not directly on the server copy.

The local replica will provide faster response time for the user, while also helping to prevent overload on our networks.

  • 1. Highlight the server copy of your mailbox on your workspace. Right-click the mouse and select Replication, and click New Replica.

The local replica will provide faster response time for the user, while also helping to prevent
  • 2. Please double check information in database, server and file path entry correct before click Ok

The local replica will provide faster response time for the user, while also helping to prevent
  • 3. For replica settings, select Encrypt the replica using - Medium Encryption Create Immediately Create full text indexing for searching

The local replica will provide faster response time for the user, while also helping to prevent

4.

Check your replicator page to make sure your new local replica has finished replicating before you try to open it.

Changing Your Lotus Notes ID Password

(1)

On the File menu, select Security, and click User Security.

(2)

In the Password field, enter the current Lotus Notes password, and click OK.

(3)

Click the Security Basics tab.

(4)

Click Change Password.

(5)

In the Password field, enter the current Lotus Notes password again, and click OK.

(6)

In the Enter New Password field, enter the new password, taking care to follow the

(7)

guidelines for Notes passwords presented in the dialog box. In the Re-enter New Password field, re-enter the new password for verification.

(8)

Click Cancel at any time to exit without changing the password.

will be displayed, defining the reason for failure (11) Click OK to close the warning box (12) If the new password is not accepted, you must enter another new password twice (13) If the password satisfies all rules a message is displayed confirming the change (14) Click OK to close the User Security dialog box (15) For full details on password rules go to http://w3.ibm.com/tools/main/notes_pwreqts

Mail Capping

The size of your mail file is constantly monitored by a server in Australia. The maximum size allowed is 300MB. When the size of your mail file reaches 270MB, a warning message will be sent to you and you need to do some housekeeping or maintenace to prevent it from growing to 300MB. Once the size reaches 300MB, you will not be able to send out any mail, but new mails addressed to you will continue to be delivered to your mailbox. If you take no action and allow the size to grow beyond 1GB, no mail will be delivered to you.

After doing maintenance, please check that all deleted mails stored in the "Trash" folder are purged before doing compacting of the database.

Archiving Tool

An archive is a copy of a Notes database you can create on your labtop’s harddisk to store mails no longer in use. Archiving frees up space and improves the performance of your mailfile.An archive contains documents and design elements from your original mailfile.

To use the archiving tool, click on the Action task bar and select archive.

MyAttachments Tool

MyAttachments is a Notes application that will help you manage attachments in your own mail database, reducing the size of the database significantly. It analyzes your mail file, and other databases if required, and lists all attached files. The attached files can be moved, either manually, or automatically on a schedule of your choosing, to a local repository created by the application. When attachments are moved to the repository, they are removed from the original memo, replaced by a document link pointing to the repository document where the file is stored. Only one copy of duplicate attachments is stored, and the repository document is linked to the original memo, or memos, so that the file may be restored if required.

MyAttachments Tool can be installed from ISSI here .

Email Ethics

Keep the note short and concise; the size should not exceed 100K Avoid imbedding unnecessary and fanciful graphics and sound files Do not copy others unnecessarily, only copy those who need to know Do not reply to all blindly; always check who are the recipients When replying to the recipients of a mail only, use ‘reply without attachments’; they already have a copy of attachment from the originator. Check the accuracy of Subject. Open a new mail if subject matter is different from the original mail. Do not classify all your mails as urgent; use "urgent" when you expect the recipient to act within the next 24 hours. Use "IBM Confidential" if the mail contents are sensitive and should not be viewed by general public and IBMers who do not have a need to know

Mass Mailing Policy

1.All mass mails sent to more than 500 Notes IDs and/or Internet IDs within a day require prior approval from Communications Manager, Julinda Mega/Singapore/IBM. Depending on the nature of the mail, Julinda may help to release the information over w3 intranet. Please note that sending a mass mail to users in batches is considered sending a single mass mail to all the recipients.

2.All mass mailing should be done after office hours from 6:00 p.m. onwards.

When sending mass mail, please observe the following guidelines:

Do's

Voice

Please refer to the table below for the most cost effective way to make phonecalls for business purposes. It is everyone’s duty to help IBM save costs!

Voice Please refer to the table below for the most cost effective way to make phonecalls

The process to apply for an IDD PIN can be found under the chapter on “Key IT Processes” below

Tieline

Tieline is a facility available on all IBMSG phone extensions, for calling other IBM locations without the need to use IDD. This effectively cuts costs and should be used wherever possible (only a small handful of countries do not yet have tieline, eg. India).

Tieline uses VoIP technology, through our intranet, on the IBM Power9 network, and the quality is as good as any IDD. To access, first dial ‘61’, followed by the 3-digit tieline country code and then the extension.

To find out what is the 3-digit tieline country code of the place you are trying to call to, please go to http://w3-

ICC

ICC is the International Calling Card and the process to apply can be found under the chapter on “Key IT Processes” below.

DTMail

Direct Talk Mail is our unified voicemail system that is integrated with our telephony system. You can access it via 6418-3088 or x3088. It can receive messages from callers when you are not around to answer your calls or when you are busy on the phone. You can also use this facility to access the tieline, to forward your phonecalls from your extension to your mobile or home phone numbers, or to tailor your telephone greetings, among others.

You can also make IDD calls via DTMail, but this requires a PIN number, which you need to apply for. (See “Key IT Processes” below for this.)

The DTMail Quick User Guide :

Key IT Processes

Workstation Refresh & Upgrade

  • - Corporate guidelines state that all machines have a lifespan of 4 years, so your machine is only eligible for a refresh after the 4th year. You can check on the age of your machine by going to e- AMT (https://w3-03.ibm.com/tools/assets/eamt/protect/index.jsp) to retrieve the capitalization date of your machine.

  • - However, if your machine breaks down often even after several attempts to repair it (by calling helpdesk on x9200 for servicing assistance), or if its specifications can no longer support your work requirements/needs, then you can send a request to the workstations asset manager, Carol Fung Fung Soh/Singapore/IBM, via email with copy to your immediate manager and explain the reasons why you need a refresh sooner. If the workstations asset manager approves your request to refresh, then she will send you an invitation with detailed instructions via email to submit to an online system called “RequestNow!”. The request will be automatically channelled by the system to your immediate manager for approval, followed by your functional planner (if applicable) and finally the workstations asset manager.

  • - Depending on the circumstances, you can also opt to just upgrade parts of your machine, rather than a total machine refresh, such as changing or adding the RAM or harddisk. For options like these, please procure via a department Bond (https://w3.ibm.com/procurement/buyondemand/common/enUS

/index.html). You can contact the Lenovo Options Brand Manager, Ken CH Kuan/Singapore/Lenovo/ID, for information on compatible part numbers and prices.

Request for an AT&T Network Client Account (MTS id)

Normally, this will automatically be applied for you by your manager when he fills in the IBM HR onboarding form, which is sent to ASEAN CSC to process. The MTS id and password will be sent to the manager, as your Notes id might not be ready on Day 1. If your manager has omitted to do this, then you can apply for the MTS id as follows :-
