How to Reissue a Notes ID

Hi All,

Our users keep their notes ID locally on their laptops (or that's how it's come from the past). 1 of our users had their laptop stolen, so no longer have the ID file.

Is there a simple way to re-issue a notes ID against a person document. I can't see the option.

Many thanks,

Pete

No backup of the ID, nothing in the NAB??

The only way is to recertify the user. If he has encrypted documents (mails), he will no longer be able to read them, since those documents were encrypted with his previous public key. The new ID will have new keys...

I agree.

General practice is to either use the automated ID Vault in R8, or to have the ID's backed up somewhere safe ( offline ) so that they can be recovered.

If you have no copy anywhere of the ID, then you will need to create a new one.

I hope this helps !

Thanks for your help - I've re-certified the user, but it's not prompting me to save the ID file somewhere. It says it was successful - but nothing else. Where am I going wrong?

Recertify > Supply Certifier ID > Supply Password > Supply Expiration Date / Time > Hit OK and get a succeeded message

Hi there,,,

I just would like to remind you about something  frankly it was sugested .... Did you check these user's documents in the names.nsf for their IDs which are  usually created when the users are created ... pelase check you have to find them over there .


Good Luck

Hi

Unfortunately if you have no backup ID, there is no recovery process, that is why the Lotus Domino ID Vault was Implemented in R85

And you will not find an ID in the Domino Directory (names.nsf) if you deselected it at the initial registration of the user.

Register/Certify a new user all over, all locally Encrypted Databases will be inaccessible (since his notebook has been stolen, this is not a problem)  - This will be the only way out.
