We are in the process of rolling out Domino 8.5. Im also creating new mailbox's for the users. I do this by creating the mailbox on the shore server and then pushing it out to the vessels. I first create the mail databases (logged in with my own ID) and give them the correct owner and access rights. I then create a new replica on the server and setup a connection document. The system then pushes them out overnight.
Problem im having is that when i open the mailbox for the first time its fine, however when someone closes the "Day at a glance" tool bar on the right and then shuts notes down and restarts it, the mailbox then opens with the below error;
Now, when i close the mailbox and either open the calendar from the open menu OR simply open the day at a glance tool bar (with the view of the calendar) again, the mailbox then opens again fine, apart from the fact the view in the middle seems to be the calendar, i need to then click on the Inbox to get rid of this.
It would seem that the calendar needs to be open in order for the mailbox to open correctly so my guess is that one of the views is trying to look at the calendar and if its not open it gives an error.
Please can someone advise when i should check for here?
The Client I’m using (8.5.1 FP5) was a fresh install, not an upgrade and i have tried the latest fix pack (FP5) with no joy.
If i create the database from scratch on the server in question then everything works OK as it should , it just seems to be with the databases I’m pushing out. I push the databases out from a Domino 7.0 server if that’s got anything to do with it? The databases where created on that server using the latest 8.5 mail template. I have also tried pushing these databases onto our test server in the office and everything worked fine. The only difference between the shore test server and the vessel server is that the shore was a clean 8.5 install and the vessel was a 7 > 8.5 upgrade. The clients I use on shore and on the vessel are clean installs.
I have also tired replacing the design of the databases from the server in question but this made no difference.
I look forward to any comments.
