How can I administer a Notes R5 Server using the server ID on the same physical server? Like in LN4.5 The Notes server is the same as the Administrator's workstation and we can use the server's ID.

Are you asking because you don't have a notes client for your server OS in R5 , or some other reason ??

I have the admin client on the server but when I use it using the server's id the it complains because the id is the same as the server's.  

Here's the story.  I have serveral remote users (25 of them) using slow modem. Some stupid users send video attachment to them which causing the delay of our important mails. Basically I need to delete those mails using the notes client. I can use the remote user's id but as a permanent solution I want to use the server's id.

We're using R5 on NT4

Just start nlnotes.exe from the Lotus/Domino server dir on the server.

I recommend that you either add yourself to the ACL of their mail file and do the management that way OR write an agent and add it to the mail template for these people that removes any large attachments from their mail files as soon as they get them

You will not be able to do it as the server id for two reasons..

1). You cannot login to the server as the server.id via a notes client via the network, this is a security restriction that has been around since 4.6 ( I think !!)

2) even if you are logged into the server as the server id and try and get at the files via the file system , then you will have to shut down the server first as the files may be in use by the server and therefore locked..

Now why would you want to use the file system to view the files on the server???
I would use the notes client!

What do you mean by:

Just start nlnotes.exe from the Lotus/Domino server dir on the server.

Can I accomplish what I want?

I mean on the server, in the directory: Lotus/Domino...which is usually the default for the server start this file:
nlnotes.exe
you will get to start the client without hassle like in R4.

Gus,

I tried it and it works, much like LN4.5. How you can get the points?

Sorry about giving you bad info on that one... I have been working with R5 on solaris for so long I have forgotten all of the stuff about client & server on the same machine... Think yourselves lucky you still have a client available that runs on your servers OS...

I still think the agent would be a better idea , then it would be self managed...

Well done Gus !!!

No they wont be locked coz you are accssing them through your notes client.  IF you accessing them through a network drive share or something like that, then you would encounter such problems.  What I assume you were doing is that you are switching id to the server id, right?  Thats why you are getting the error message.

No problem Simon...I think using Unix is quite diff than NT.
