Prevent Notes Client's access to another server with a replica
Posted on 2005-04-05
We have a distributed Domino deployment. We have a WAN connecting our different offices. There is a domino server at each location and the data is replicated at a set interval over the WAN.
One problem we have is that whenever a client is not able to access the Domino server specified in the document (because the server may not be available temporarily), it tries to connect to other servers and tries to find a replica copy of the database on it. Since we have a WAN and the replica copy is available, the User starts working on the database hosted at the remote location without realising that he is doing so. Obviously the performance will be slow on the WAN link as the bandwidth is limited.
We wish to find a way to prevent Notes Clients accessing another server when opening the database. Basically, lookup redirection doesn't happen during database Open event.
Thanking you in anticipation,
