1. reset the password of the existing lotus notes user from Lotus Domino 8 ?
2. and then create user.id file so that i can send this file through email ?
what would happens if i register the same username in the lotus domino server ? would that give me the same effect as in reset password ? and how about the other attributes that i have set on that username including its access list ?
You can either use the original user.id file (if you still have it) which hopefully has a generic password on it. Or you must go through the Password Recovery process.
If you registered a user with the same name then they will automatically get a '1' behind everything.
ie. John Smith = jsmith if you created again it will be jsmith1
Hence it's just creating a new user, no attributes such as ACL's etc would carry accross.
Someone else may no a way to reset passwords on user id's but our Notes admin always insisted it wasn't possible.
