iNotes – prompted for second logon after DNS change

Hello All,

I have hit a snag during a Microsoft AD migration/DNS change with iNotes.

As an example, our current AD DNS is and we are moving to company.local, post migration of the domino servers we update the “Fully qualified Internet host name:” on the basics tab and the “Host names(s)” on the Internet Protocals/HTTP tab to “”. Now if a user tries to access inotes (, this server has not been migrated yet, and the user is redirected to the home server they are prompted to logon again. The inotes server can ping the server as or, if I change the DNS names back to the it all works again – it seems our domino setup does not trust the “company.local” DNS domain name, can I set it up so both DNS names work as this migration progresses?

The good news is that you do not have to wait for the migration to complete. Are you accessing the Domino servers form the internet through HTTP at all?

You can create dns entries in advance using a common domain which can be used to access the Domino servers with. You can then setup your SSO for the this Domain, even though some Domino servers' hosts have not been physically migrated. This domain also does not necessarily have to be the same as your AD domain, just as long as your DNS returns the correct ip of the Domino server when accessed through a browser.

Kind regards
This can't work with domino only.
You are redirecting between two domains. The cookie from one domain, won't be submitted to the other.
The only solution is, to migrate faster...
