Notes 6.5.2 connecting alphabetically to no referenced servers during startup
Posted on 2004-09-09
After upgrading Notes client software (Windows) from 6.0.3 to version 6.5.3 workstations started connecting to strange servers. Looks that they started connecting servers which happens to be first in the alphabets. Here is what happens:
- open Lotus Notes
- input your ID password
--> see connection to Finland server = ok
--> now you see connection to Argentina (Notes status bar) <-** strange and slows down login
--> see connection to Search-server = ok
--> desktop is opened and loaded
First which came in mind was that I have some references to Argentina server, but I didn't find any (no databases or document links to that server). Same thing with more than 200 workstations!
Secondly I checked with NETSTAT that connection to not wanted Argentina server is really live, and it really is! I issued SH USERS command at Argentina server and found that there are listed all our users from Finland! Databases were no open for our Finland users, but active connections. Kicking out those users causes reconnection. This will of course slow down the WAN connections and the heaven know what else.
I took packet trace with Etherreal and I didn't see anything special. Notes client just has port 1352 traffic to Argentina server. At this moment I don't know what to do.
Do you have idea which may cause this or even better, do you have answer to this question?
