Domino Administrators ID file certificate has expired ... No Problem
Mat Newman    

Came across this at a new client site today, the client knows the Domino Administrators password, but cannot use the Administration client (or any Notes client) with the Administrators ID file, because the Administrators ID file certificates have expired.

It's a pretty simple thing to fix.

EITHER:
  • Use your server's Notes client to recertify the Administrator.

OR
  • Get hold of an ID file for a user who hasn't expired,
  • Add that user to the 'LocalDomainAdmins' group,
  • Access the Domino Directory on the server and recertify the Admin ID,
  • Remove the user from the 'LocalDomainAdmins' group,
  • Done.

The details:

Using a server.
  • Go to the physical domino server,
  • Browse to the Domino program folder,
  • Locate nlnotes.exe,
  • Run it.

Yes I KNOW this is not a 'supported configuration' but hey, it Domino - #ThisS***JustWorks.

 
  • You now have a notes client, which you can use to access the names.nsf locally (the Domino Directory),
  • Go to 'People',
  • Choose (highlight) the Administrator,
  • Choose (from the menu) ACTIONS -> Recertify Selected People,
  • Choose the Administrators organization certifier,
  • Enter the certifier password.
  • Choose a date a long time from now (you WANT you Admin ID file to expire every two years???),
  • Done.

The Long way - elevate another user.


If you know the Administrators password, there is a fair chance you can still access the Domino Web Administrator using that password:
  • Log-in to the Webadmin using: http://yourserver.com/webadmin.nsf and the Administrators Username and Password,
  • Go to 'People and Groups',
  • Edit the 'LocalDomainAdmins' group to include the users name who's ID file has not expired,
  • On the Domino Console, 'load updall -r names.nsf', then 'dbcache flush',
  • Start the users Notes client,
  • Open the Domino Directory (names.nsf) on the server,
  • Choose People from the navigator,
  • Highlight the Administrator,
  • Choose (from the menu) ACTIONS -> Recertify Selected People,
  • Choose the Administrators organization certifier,
  • Enter the certifier password.
  • Choose a date a long time from now (you WANT you Admin ID file to expire every two years???),
  • Using any method you want (you've got a recertified Admin now), remove the user from the 'LocalDomainAdmins' group,
  • Done.


Hope this helps someone, this has happened a few times in the last couple of months when we pick up a new (old) Notes customer who hasn't needed to use the Admin ID in a while.

Domino Administrators ID file certificates have expired? No Problem.

A quiet farewell Lotus 1-2-3, Organizer and Smartsuite
Sun, Oct 5th 2014 11:45p   Mat Newman
Last week a fairly significant date passed without much fanfare: The Withdrawal From Support (WFS) for some of the best desktop software ever created in Lotus 1-2-3, Lotus Organizer and the Lotus Smartsuite office package. This - of course - followed on from the announcement that these iconic products would be withdrawn from marketing effective the 11th of June, 2013. WFM is the term used to signify that a product will no longer be available for purchase by customers. WFS means that a prod [read] Keywords: ibm lotus symphony applications desktop development integration office openoffice
