on the existing Person in Domino Directory, several fields with names starting
with "Roam..." are being populated with data. While most of them
are well documented or their purpose is easily understood, among them is
the one mysterious field called "RoamingUserUpdateFlag". Coincidentally,
this is also the name of the notes.ini parameter that gets added to the
client's notes.ini at the time roaming was enabled.

Manage private views in Lotus Notes database
Fri, Jan 6th 2012 1:11p Bodek Frak I just discovered that you can now see

client. Not just your private views, all private views including those

Moving users to new server occasionally corrupts location document.
Mon, May 2nd 2011 9:08a Bodek Frak Recently, we had a serious failure of one of
the three Domino servers in our cluster. We had to move people to another
server using "Move to Another Server" tool in Domino Administrator
8.5.2. Later, we had to move them back, and we took this opportunity to

cluster. In the end, we used this tool on every one of our 2,917 users.
