Missing certlog template

Hi experts,

We have newly installed R5 on a linux server and now need to re-certify some users. I get a message telling me there is no certlog.nsf.

I know *how* to create the database, but when I try, there is no template on the server.

Does anyone know why the template would be missing, and how to get it without re-installing Notes?

Thanks in advance.

Probably it should be in some other directory with extension as nsf (certlog.nsf) , did you check other related notes dir ?

To get the template , you might have to re-install notes !

Other check would be to look for this entry in notes.ini, probably some administrator would move admin files to certain dir

CertifierLog=admin\certlog.nsf

above all you want the certlog.ntf then I can mail you the template, let me know your mail id.

Had the same problem, first do a file search to make sure it's not on the disk somewhere, or on the administration console,  and then create a new database using the certification log advanced template (certlog.ntf).  Be sure to place it in the same directory on the server as the events.nsf, and give your server rights to administer the application.

Downside is that you lose all your previous certification log entries, and may need to recertify people in your address book.

Then check the ini file as Hemantha suggests to make sure it's listed.

As usual, the answer is quite simple. I didn't click the "Show Advanced Templates" box.

My only excuse is the version I was using was in Italian, and I still haven't got the hang of the language yet!

Thanks.
