I've attached a copy of an notes.ini file. I need to setup a configfile to prevent users intervention.
From the ini file, what are the infos i should include in the configfile. Should the configfike = c:\path be the only entry in notes ini.

I need help
Thanks
Cheers

The allowable settings are here:
http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/dominowiki.nsf/dx/configfile

What I have is this in my Notes.ini

[Notes]
ConfigFile=C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Lotus\Notes\Data\Setup.txt

And this in my setup.txt file

KeyfileName=\\server\share\<username>.id
Domino.Name=ANYMAILSERVER/DOMAIN/AU
Domino.Address=ANYMAILSERVER.domain.comDomino.Port=TCPIP
Domino.Server=1
AdditionalServices=-1
AdditionalServices.NetworkDial=0
IM.Server=disableinstantmessaging
IM.Port=1533
IM.Protocol=1


And it runs through a standard setup.  It's interesting to note that you don't need to specify Username= and you can specify any mail server starting with Notes 6 or above, I believe.

Regards,

Rob.

I've these 2 lines in the Notes.ini and create a setup.txt and ran Lotus Notes..nothign happens.

next, I have rename setup.txt to notes.ini and ran Lotus Notes...All seems good..asked me for the password.

The only problem is it's still asking me for the Additional Services where I need to tick Internet Proxy Server box.

Any idea how to stop that ?? I have set the addiotnal services = 0  or -1

Proxy.HTTP=<proxyaddress>:<port>
Proxy.UseHTTP=1

Still doens't work. If i can fix thaat ..I'm laughing. Once this works, I will need a VBScript to create different Notes.ini from a table list.

Mine doesn't prompt me for anything during the 8.0.2 or 8.5.1 client setup, with the config I posted, but annoyingly, no matter what or how I specify the proxy settings, it doesn't seem to take any effect.  In fact, even if I run through it manually and set proxy servers, when I check the Location document, it isn't configured.

I can't test with a 6.5 client, but I'm surprised that yours uses the Notes.ini with the settings, and not the separate config file.

Regards,

Rob.

Glad you got it to work.  Can you explain what you did, if it's different to what I posted, just so others can know too?
