Hello everyone,

I'm struggling with search of reliable backup software that supports backup of IBM Domino 9.0.1 FP4+ servers (Windows x86/x64).
Important notice - installed on physical, not virtual servers.

I will check for over 15 known (for me) backup software solutions and not a single one support Domino. Some still offers support for older Domino 8.0.x, 8.5.x. Some like Veritas Backup Exec (in older version 15) supporting up to 9.0.1 FP4 (with limitations) but in newer version completely ditch Agent for Domino and not supporting any version of Domino. Even IBM own Tivoli Storage Manager are left Domino support at old versions 8.0.x (which is more funny they upgrading support for Exchange competition). Veritas NetBackup 8.0 (form my deployments horribly expensive) has very strange mention of Domino in the documentation - they not mentioning any specific Domino version and called agent "for Lotus Notes" which name are long time ditched in favor of IBM Domino/ IBM Notes  so it was rather looks like support for some very old Domino infrastructure.

Please let me know if you know a way to backup Domino using any legitimate backup software.

p.s.
I know article about three ways how to backup Domino using standard backup software (1. "live" with high possibility of db crash on restore, 2. shutting down the server for backup, 3. semi secure - with dropping db connections). Thats really not wnat I'm looking for.

thanks in advance for any

Hello,

I have a working  Lotus Organizer 6.1 in one of my laptops. I will be using a new laptop and want to transfer all my data. Can't find the disc. Is there any place I can download the software? if not, is there a similar software available to replace it other than Outlook? Any ideas will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi, I just tried a very simple code to create a document and to create a new item. Document gets created but not the new item.Below is the code:

Sub Initialize
      Dim Session As New NotesSession
    Dim db As NotesDatabase
    Dim doc1 As NotesDocument
    Dim item As NotesItem
    Set db = session.Currentdatabase
      Set doc1 = New NotesDocument(db)
            Set item = New NotesItem _
          (doc1, "ModifiedBy", session.UserName)
            
            Call doc1.save(True, True)
End Sub

Is there Lotusscript that can replace the design of one database with another?  The source database is not a Template. The source and target databases are on different servers.

Hello. We have a server issue and need to get all of the Lotus Notes information off of the server.  The goal is to transfer to another database, i.e. Access for historical data and input live, current information into our SAP/CRM system. Lotus Notes is being used currently for customer service/field service repairs and on-site calls.  The problem is that the only person with Administrator privileges has left the company and we have no other resource available to help us with this task.  The server is old and has already failed once.  Is there a way to get all of the information into a flat file or even a spreadsheet?  

Thank you.

Hi all

Would you mind helping with this batch file I'd like run this command so it initiates on this  particular server.
Is these anything else I need to add.

My aim is to gracefully reboot a domino mail server on an automated schedule. Therefore, I was looking for a feature within domino or a set of commands I can put on a schedule to quit Domino and then reboot the physical host.

cd E:\Lotus\Domino
nserver -c "quit"
Timeout /T 600
shutdown.exe /r /f


Many thanks

In my form, I have a field defined as 'dialog list' which includes a list of employees from a view.
I have a few other fields on the form pertaining to training (class, date, etc).
Is it possible to read the dialog list (list of employee names selected) and create a record for each employee with the training information entered?
The training would remain the same, just the name selected in the list would be different.
So, if I selected 10 names in the list for 'New Employee Training', I would like to create 10 records for each employee with 'New Employee Training'.
Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you.

We are attempting to improve an elevation of design process and this includes automating a number of steps. Signing the Database Design Elements with the Server ID is one of those steps.

What are my options for signing all the Database Design Elements with a Server ID?

I believe I can....
1. Create an Admin Request out of Admin4.nsf and let AdminP handle the signing.
2. Create an agent that runs the SignDatabaseWithServerID (Which creates an Admin Request in Admin4.nsf)
3. Create an agent that runs on behalf of the Server ID that performs a notesDatabase.Sign

Has anyone does something similar to this?

Thanks in Advance.

Hi All,

I am a new to the Domino Server administration so kindly  bare with me. Our organization has installed many domino server (Version 9.x) across various department with replication configured between various Domino servers.

Recently, a few users has complained the email received on his input of its corresponding home domino server has been delayed for over 2 hours. Our boss has assigned me to check the replication and server log to see if there is any issue that might related to the incident. Below is my questions:

1) I understand that the domino server log is actually stored on a file called log.nsf, may I know what is the correct way to open this file. Can we use Lotus Administrator client to open the log.nsf or can I just use the Lotus Notes client to open that file ? Appreciate if someone can show us some steps or URL describing the step by step procedures of checking the domino server or replication log ?

2) From the log.nsf, can we see if there is any replication at a particular time interval ? We would like to know if it is possible to locate and see if a particular email has been successfully replicated to our home sever or the replication status of a particular email from the log file ?

3) What is the best practice of troubleshooting such replication issue/incident other than checking the log.nsf file ?

Your kind advice and technical information are very much appreciated.

Thanks & Regards
Patrick

Good Afternoon,

We are having a problem with IBM Lotus notes Version 9.01 when a user tries to use the “Reply To All” function on an email received from an external email address.  

Our domains are configured as follows:
Lotus Notes/Domino Domain: acme.com
Primary Internet Domain: acme.com

We are running Domino on a Windows 2012 server.

I think we should first mention that we have found another question asked on the internet (which never got answered) we think is “somewhat” similar to the problem we are having: http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/nd85forum.nsf/DateAllFlatWeb/3DE05E9E6E624849852578F1004457BE

Here is an example of our specific problem
An external user “John Doe” sends an email to the following example users:
To: User1@acme.com, User2@acme.com, User3@acme.com, gmail1@gmail.com

All users receive this first email no problem. However, when, let’s say User2, tries to “Reply To All” then Lotus IBM Notes generates the following:

To: “Doe, John (company)” <John.Doe@company.com>
Cc: “User1@acme.com, “gmail1@gmail.com” <gmail1@gmail.com>, “User3@acme.com,

When you look at the CC: field, you can see that lotus incorrectly puts one double quote before our Lotus Note users - User1 and User3. Interestingly, the external address seems to form correctly here (gmail1).

If a user tries to send the email in its current form, a Delivery Failure is presented with the following error: “Invalid Internet address specified.”

Maybe it’s also important to …

I have an old Lotus Sametime version 8.5 service running.  I had to phase out the AD domain controller it was using to do LDAP queries against.  I updated the server name in the notes.ini file restarted the LDAP service from the Lotus Domino Console (Restart Task LDAP) but it's not taking the changes.  I looked for any other reference to the depreciated server and only found UserInfoConfig.xml which I also updated.  I then tried making changes via the Domino Administrator and loaded the C:\IBM\Lotus\Domino\data\da.nsf file but when I expand the Directory tree and click on Directory Assistance I get the following error "Unable to open the view Directory Assistance:  Invalid or nonexistent document".  

Any suggestions?    I'm planning to migrate away from sametime but for now I need to keep it running.

Thanks experts.

There's a user who constantly cc's himself on email messages that he sends.  In doing this, does it have any impact on the size of his mail file (does it count as 2 messages, rather than 1)?
