"You can use the supplied single user to multi user tool to migrate a Notes single user install to a Notes multi-user install for an existing Notes release prior to upgrading to a new release. This enables you to convert an existing Notes single user install to a multi-user install for both Notes basic and Notes standard configuration deployments. It also enables you to convert a simulated multi-user install (where the user's data directory is on a mapped drive) to a true multi-user install. This tool is available for Lotus Notes 6.5.x, 7.x, and 8.x installations on supported Windows platforms only. "
Busting a DBMT pre-allocation Myth
Thu, Jul 10th 2014 9:05p Adam Osborne Some say you no longer need to worry about fragmenation now DBMT has a new pre-allocation feature - sorry that's not the case. Let me explain: DBMT uses copy style compacts when it's reorganizing a target database. We've written numerous times about how copy style compacts have a nasty fragmentation side-effect.

This year we've seem more customers move over to Exchange. Many have been trying for 2+ years. Four of the bigger sites have become complete train wrecks, typical of this type of de-collaboration project. I've never actually seen one workout as per the script. If Hawthorn was available I believe it would of been near impossible for the Exchange jihadist [read] Keywords: collaboration
