Dear Experts,
I have 2 domino servers 7.0.2 which are clusterd together.When I am creating a mail file for a user on the 1st server,the mail file is also being created on the 2nd server.
The problem I am facing is that when I am trying to open the mail database on the 1st server,it is opening but when I am trying to open that database from the 2nd server,it is showing an error message: Database is not fully initialized yet.You will have to use 'Replicate..' on the File,Replication menu to initialize it.
Can you please suggest the configurations that needs to be done to overcome this problem.

Follow the instructions that the error message has provided you:

Select db on the workspace (text becomes blue) and then:

File - Replication - Replicate - Replicate with options (select 1st server).

Do both servers have Manager access rights to the database?

I have tried the above solution from Mr. mbonaci.But it is giving the same error : " Database is not fully initialized yet.You will have to use 'Replicate..' on the File,Replication menu to initialize it ".

And I have checked the Access Control list.Both the servers have manager access rights to the database.

In both databases?? That's odd. And it's even odder that a manual replication doesn't help. You manually replicated the database on server1 with the replica on server2? That should never give that error message. Not if you created both databases and YOU have Manager access to both of them.

If you still can't get this to work, use the BAM (Blunt Axe Method): in the Admin client, enable Full Access Administration mode and repeat the manual replication.

Yes, I am now manually able to replicate the database. But it is really very odd that each time I create a mail file,I have to manually replicate the database with the othe server. Even both the servers have manager access rights to the database.So,is there any way where the database will be automatically replicated at the time of mail file creation?

I have already gone through these documents but unfortunately they did not work.

So there are no cluster replication problems? It is activated and you can see it in the log?

Sometimes it is better not to ask "why" or "how" something is done in Notes. I guess this is such a time...  :-S
