Runa Web agent on any JavaScript event

Have you ever wanted to run an agent on the Web without having the screen
reload? Are you frustrated because you’d like an agent to run on an event other
than a document opening or saving? Here is a great solution for Internet
Explorer 5.0+ (Other browsers now also supported, see User Feedback section

For me the java console is a lost gem for the notes administrators.

It is a good feature because it allows to administrate all your server from one single point. It will run the console separatly from your notes client, and this is good because the admin client sucks ! it give you more but that’s not the subject of this post.

Domino Server console missing in Windows Server 2008


Domino Server console missing in Windows Server 2008

April 4, 2011

Due to an architectural change in Windows Server 2008 the Domino Server console will no longer display when run as a Windows service . Any service running under Windows Server 2008, will run under session 0, and for security reasons, Microsoft has locked down the session 0 from all user interactions. If you would like to display the Domino console similarly to previous Windows Server versions you will need to configure the Domino Windows service to run in “Domino Server Controller” (Java Console) mode as seen below.

Programmatically replace the design of Lotus Notes databases

Lotus Notes Domino lacks the out-of-the-box capabilities needed to perform certain functions, such as dynamically updating rich-text fields from the back-end without closing a document. This lack of functionality can send administrators on a quest for an easier solution.

A similar situation arises when trying to programmatically replace the design of a Lotus Notes database. IBM doesn’t provide a LotusScript method or C-API function to accomplish this task. In fact, the only way to replace a database design is by manually choosing File -> Database -> Design Replace for each specific database. However, this manual method doesn’t make much sense when replacing the design of several databases.

The following LotusScript code can be used to replace the design of multiple databases. The script actually deletes all design notes from the target database and copies them from the source database.

Using and understanding Reader Names fields in IBM Lotus Notes and Domino

Reader Names fields (also known as Reader and Author Access or Reader Names)
restrict access to documents in IBM Lotus Notes and Domino databases. This
