16 Jul 2015Larry Zwerlin30Make the Notes client check the attachment size BEFORE sending the email

1. Download AttachZIP to restrict attachment size for each user. It allows you to specify maximum attachment size for specified IBM DD groups.

i.e. AttachZIP end user profile

Maximum attachment size: 10240 KB for default users
20000 KB for IBM DD group 2: AttachZIP HR users
30000 KB for IBM DD group 2: AttachZIP Accounting users
40000 KB for IBM DD group 3: AttachZIP IT users

{ Link }

2. Otherwise, you can globally restrict message size for Notes users, and globally restrict messages size and attachment size for iNotes users as seen below.

IBM Notes: Restricting message size

1. Open DD Server configuration settings document - Router/SMTP tab - Restrictions and Controls tab - Restrictions tab, then change field: Maximum message size

IBM iNotes: Restricting message size and attachment size

1. Open DD Server configuration settings document, then click IBM iNotes tab and change field: Maximum attachment size (kb)

2. Open DD Internet Sites (Web Site) document, then click Domino Web Engine tab and change field: Maximum POST data (in kilobytes):

3. Open DD Server document, then click Internet Protocols tab - HTTP tab and change HTTP Protocol Limits field: Maximum size of request content
28 Mar 2015Larry Zwerlin30Make the Files view exportable to .csv from the administrator client

You can easily export data in the Domino Administrator client (i.e. Files tab) using the "ACL Dominator" tool. It generates DB properties reports, ACL reports and mailbox reports. Click the web site below, then click link "Screenshot 9 - Export Domino Admin client - Files tab". { Link }
02 Feb 2015Alex Elliott20Allow an ID to be selected to sign a database with

Yes this can done programatically using the NotesRegistration class which has been around since Notes 4.6.


Dim Session As New NotesSession
Dim Reg As NotesRegistration
Dim CurrentIDFilePath As String
Dim CurrentIDPassword As String
Dim IDFilePath As String
Dim IDPassword As String

' Specify path of id file to switch to and password for the id file
IDFilePath = "..."
IDPassword = "..."

' Save path of current id file
CurrentIDFilePath = Session.GetEnvironmentString("KeyFileName", True)
CurrentIDPassword = "..."

' Switch to alternate id file
Set Reg = New NotesRegistration
Reg.Registration = Session.CurrentDatabase
Call Reg.SwitchToID(IDFilePath, IDPassword)

' Sign the database
Call Session.CurrentDatabase.Sign(DBSIGN_DOC_ALL)

' Switch back to original id file
Call Reg.SwitchToID(CurrentIDFilePath, CurrentIDPassword)

31 Oct 2014David Hablewitz15237Upgrade the admin client. Still has Notes 7 status bar even.

I rescind this idea. There are certain features that have been ruined in the Notes client that still work right in the admin client, like dealing with location docs, I can edit current and not have to deal with a modal dialog box. Sometimes newer is not better.
03 Apr 2014Tinus Riyanto2905provide admin tool to force-stop Amgr & Runonserver tasks

Agree that this is needed for Amgr in edge cases like you describe above.
24 Jan 2014Tinus Riyanto2905Stop the ACL being Modal

I don't really mind the ACL window be modal if I can copy information from it.

For example I go to Effective Access and get the list of groups that have said user as a member.

If I then wanted to know what is the hierarchy of those groups (which one is nested inside the other) I would need to either remember the list or type it somewhere first.
05 Jan 2014Mike Woolsey5040Stop the ACL being Modal

I have to carry around scripts that do this comparison. This is a great idea.
15 Oct 2013Bill Malchisky9254Temporary FullText Indexes

Sounds reasonable. The only issue I then see is that if the server is low on disk space and the admin just purged all the FTIs... but we're talking about a few apps in that scenario.
15 Oct 2013Mark Demicoli11797Temporary FullText Indexes

I would just detect the condition and ask the poweruser if they want to create the FT index again.
15 Oct 2013Bill Malchisky9254Temporary FullText Indexes

I like it in theory... what happens when the user comes back in Y days, where y > x, and they run a search on a DB that was previously FTI enabled? Does the server stop and make the index first in the DB, or run the non-FTI search?
14 Aug 2013Christopher Boote6132Search capability in Server Console

I know we asked for a filter in the Admin console YEARS ago, so yes, yes, yes please
21 Jun 2013Tinus Riyanto2905Upgrade the admin client. Still has Notes 7 status bar even.

@David, I think that I have submit similar idea in the past. At that time everybody voted no since they don't want a heavy loading admin client.

So I guess moral of the story at that time is that you can do improvement but make sure it load as fast or even faster and does not crash even once in a blue moon.

Not sure if the consensus have changed now.
12 Jun 2013David Hablewitz15237Upgrade the admin client. Still has Notes 7 status bar even.

That is true. So was Notes R3.
12 Jun 2013Vlad Sh10448Upgrade the admin client. Still has Notes 7 status bar even.

It is very good that it has not been touched - work fast and stable.
24 May 2013John McCann10Add an opton to the administration client to NOT create accelerated create replica requests

Accelerated create replica causes havoc with one way connections when source server can't connect to destination, but destination regularly connects to source.
30 Apr 2013Lisa Lin34When deleting user, delete archive & roaming files as well as mail file

We implemented this by adding some script in the AdminP Deletion Approval button. When a Notes Admin pressed the button to approve the mail file deletion requests, the code searched for the archive mail file and submitted a deletion request for the Archive Mail file. So that we have a record for the deletion and adminp handles everything.
24 Apr 2013Mark Demicoli11797New toolbar widget "Console Command"

Status changed to Withdrawn
23 Apr 2013Mark Demicoli11797New toolbar widget "Console Command"

"I" should have read the manual :)
23 Apr 2013Mark Demicoli11797New toolbar widget "Console Command"

Ahh U should have read the manual :)
23 Apr 2013Lisa Lin34New toolbar widget "Console Command"

We already did that by adding a smart icon/button(with the formula @Command( [AdminRemoteConsole] )) on the toolbar in the Notes Client. It's been working for years.
