Here is something new that I have not anticipated! For those of you that helped me with this ticket (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Email_Servers/Lotus_Domino/Q_24104688.html
), I find now after fixing the server problem, some other strange issues are starting to show. One of the weirdest one is that some users can no longer open the "User Preferences" settings. They get the annoying error "Public key does not macth....". Same error when they try open the Archive preferences as well. To fix this, we needed to basically create a new personal names.nsf, copy the documents (contacts, locations, and connections) from one database to another, then delete the old names.nsf and use the recently created one. That is very tedious as you need to trick the Notes Client and is very confussing for the support team.
It seems to me that preferences/archive settings pop-up windows were somehow signed with the old server.id and therefore could not be opened. The question to you guys is:
Where is the information stored about your preferences and archive settings stored? Is it in the bookmark.nsf? Desktop? or names.nsf? I have opend the profiles for each and removed them. Still the problem persists. I am not sure what else to do? We have over 100 users affected and I hate to having to recreate names.nsf in every desktop!
