Lotus Notes and Local admin rights

Hi Guys,

Due to new security rules we need to remove the local admin rights from the domain users on there PC's.

I removed them as local admins and replaced them as restricted users.
We are running a mix of XP and Windows 7 machines.

After the change we found that Lotus Notes would either crash on startup providing us with one of the "dont send / send error msgs" or they recieved an error which i have attached a screenshot of.

To resolve both issues i had to change the users local rights back to admins.

Is anyone aware of why this happens and if there is a way around this.
We really cant have any of the domain users as local admins on there PC's.

Thanks

Cool,

How do i go about doing this?
So this will enable lotus notes to run on a user who only has restricted user local permissions?

Hi,

So i tired this but it still gave same error.
Found issue to be the permissions on the lotus directory.
User needs to have write permissions as lotus creates a file upon opening called ~notes.lck inside the data folder.

Thanks for your time and help

Are you in a hurry? There are other ways to accomplish what you  want, but if you close a question too soon you never know...

Examples:
A. you move the entire data directory to the user's personal tree, including the notes.ini file
B. I think that if you define the user as Roaming user, you have more flexibility as to where the data is stored

A is the preferred method. Changing the directory rights and run as Admin are poor substitutes.
