Solution:


This problem happens if there is a leftover JAR file named "ibmjcaprovider.jar" in your Notes Java virtual machine folder. It is usually left when upgrading to a higher version of Notes where this JAR has been replaced by a new JAR named "ibmjceprovider.jar".

To resolve this, all you need to do is to delete the "ibmjcaprovider.jar" file (usually in the "Lotus\Domino\ibm-jre\jre\lib\ext\ibmjcaprovider.jar" folder).
