Unable to store document in <SERVER> names.nsf (NoteID = 0) from names.nsf (NoteID = 59714): No such entry on remote server

After an domino upgrade 5.011 to 6.5.4FP2 we received many messages in the log

Error message:
Unable to store document in <SERVER> names.nsf (NoteID = 0) from names.nsf (NoteID = 59714): No such entry on remote server


The cause of the problem is the profile document $Topology, after we deleted the $Topology document we did not recieved new errors.

$Topology is been made by the MAPS task on the administration server
TopologyData1 => "DOM;NAM=XYZXYZ;"
TopologyData2 => "NWK;NAM=You need to upgrade your client. Topology data is in R6 format;"
TopologyData3 => "CLS;NAM=You need to upgrade your client. Topology data is in R6 format;"

replicatie server
TopologyData1 => "DOM;NAM=XYZXYZ;"
$RarelyUsedName => "NWK;NAM=You need to upgrade your client. Topology data is in R6 format;"
$RarelyUsedName => "CLS;NAM=You need to upgrade your client. Topology data is in R6 format;"

The $Topology document on the administration server has the same values as before the upgrade.
Ofline Compact -c -i has been done.
It seems that the names.nsf is getting bigger and bigger. It looks like a replication conflict within the names.nsf , but we cannot see it because we don not have te appropriate view.

We still have some domino 5 servers in the domain and we still replicate them with the domino 6.5.4FP2  servers.

Question : Why have the field names on the replication server a different name than the one on the administration server, who is changing this and how can we solve this?

Kind regards,

The field names hsould not have changed. Check the template for your address book.

As part of the recommendations, I think you are supposed to put the newest template on all of your oder servers.

Did you read the REDbook on R6 upgrades ?

In the meantime, I would turn off the Maps task which probably creates the $opology stuff

I hope this helps !

You upgraded all servers? Or just one? In that case, make sure that you don't replicate the design of the NAB to other servers.
Hi sjef_bosman,
The Domino 6 Directory template can be used in a mixed-release environment that contains Domino 6 and Domino 4.6 or Domino 5 servers. After upgrading your first server to Lotus Domino 6, you can replicate the new template to the other servers in your organization.

The names.nsf of the 6.5.4FP2 and 5.XX servers are of the 6.5.4 template. I cannot upgrade all the servers to 6.5.4FP2 because other departments have there own servers (and have to upgrade themselves ) in the one domain.
Indead i turned of the Maps task till this is solved.

The first ( administration) server was upgraded to 6.5.4 FP2 first, Now we are upgrading the rest .

Kind regards,

Yes, the R6 template CAN be used, but I myself wouldn't do that. We've had some strange issues in the past when upgrading servers, and don't like issues with NABs, whatever the reason.
Just a thought, does the replicating/updating server have access to the NAB?   And to that document?
