simple - option to rename a db's flename without having to go through Move database dialog.
Adminp can still process as a move as required

1) Bill Schroeder736 (09 Jan 2008)
This would be very useful to me. Our Domino servers are on System i (aka iSeries) & our System i team does not give us OS access.
2) Ulrich Krause4897 (09 Jan 2008)
What is the advantage of such an option? I do not see any difference to the move database request via adminp process.

I admit it seems as though there is little to gain, but it would be a more intuitive option. The Notes client has often been criticised for being less than user-friendly. I just feel that the File Management in the Admin client ought to be a little easier to use, hence this idea and my linked idea

A move involves creation of a new replica and deletion of the old one (IIRC) - more steps than is really needed when just renaming a database on the same server

Better yet, when running a rename of user(due to marriage/divorce or whatever) we should get prompted to ask if we need to change their mail file name, janedoe.nsf to janedone.nsf.
Also that their email address get changed accordingly and the old one added to the alias/short field.

never mind the last line of my comment, meant to copy that elsewhere.
