Currently there is no easy way to open a database in lotusscript that:

  • takes the replica ID
  • is cluster aware
  • does not require the server name


db.OpenByReplicaID requires the server to be specified, and will not fail over in a clustered environment. db.OpenWithFailover requires the server name and file path, but will fail over.


Being able to just provide a replica ID and let Notes handle the rest would allow Domino Admins to move databases around more easily, without code or metadata needing to be updated.


Under the covers this is obviously possible, as Notes:///replicaID links work.

Kinda like the OpenWithFailOver should have been implemented... :-)
