"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. "
IBM Santa, may we please have Project Hawthorn for Christmas ?
Wed, Dec 4th 2013 4:02p Adam Osborne Zero news on this potentially game changing feature since it was announce three months back. I really hope IBM ships it at Connect-o-sphere. 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
Fragmentation is affecting my Domino server performance?.......I just don't see it!
Thu, Sep 26th 2013 5:22p Adam Osborne Really? If something IS broken then it really does need to be fixed, especially when the affected items are at the very core of everything else that needs to be done, like I/O on Domino. Sometimes the tricky part is recognising when something is broken and can be improved significantly and this can be a real problem with Domino because it's so resilient it can be very broken and keep plugging along although at a much reduced potential. The good news is we have released a new FREE Defrag Healt [read] Keywords: domino
DBMT - It's how it shatters that matters
Thu, Sep 12th 2013 12:42a Adam Osborne DBMT is a fantastic feature included with Domino 9 and you should be running it! DBMT replaces the need to run Compact and Updall, it enables the ability to schedule multi-threaded maintenance such as Compact, Updall and Full Text Index over a configured time window. The DBMT tool does all of the following: - Runs copy-style compact operations - Purges deletion stubs - Expires soft deleted entries - Updates views - Reorganizes folders - Merges full-text indexes - U [read] Keywords: domino
The LUG Conundrum
Wed, Aug 28th 2013 11:22p Adam Osborne First up, to everyone, and I mean everyone who does anything for a LUG I thank you. So much of what we do today would be dead in the water without your support for the past 5-10 years. The Domino Ecosystem is very sick - we all know the reasons. Probably the easiest way to raise cash would be to charge a minimal fee to attend - but that may not fly. Recently I put forward an idea to my local LUG offering to donate a % of product sales if they extended offers to their LUG members. I did it a [read] Keywords: domino
How to prevent the deletion of important groups
Tue, Aug 13th 2013 12:42a Adam Osborne We almost missed this one. In Domino 9 you can edit the Directory Profile to protect against accidental deletion of important groups. Customizing the Directory Profile: Open the Profile Document. People and Groups -> People -> Actions -> Edit Directory Profile. Enter the names of groups that you want to prevent from accidental deletion in the Administrator client user interface or by AdminP. The list of protected groups defaults to LocalDomainAdmins, LocalDomainServers, and OtherDom [read] Keywords: adminp

Wed, Jul 31st 2013 12:42a Adam Osborne We've just released Defrag.NSF 3.00 so here is a tip on getting started with the Defrag/DBMT integration feature. 1. Edit the notes.ini on the server and do the following: - Remove Updall from the ServerTasksAt2 parameter. (When you run this tool, you no longer need to run updall; do not run them both). - Add the parameter MailFileDisableCompactAbort=1 (This parameter prevents the router from interrupting the compact operations by delivering mail; delivery restarts after the compact operatio [read] Keywords: domino
