Notes ini settings

Notes.ini settings: A
Setting Description Example Comment
Admin

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the user name of the server administrator. Enter each part of the name in canonical format, separated by a slash (/), where: CN is the common name; OU is the organization unit; O is the organization; and C is the country code. There is no default setting. Admin=CN=John Smith/
OU=Marketing/O=Acme
There is no UI equivalent.
AdminPInterval

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the number of minutes that AdminP waits before checking for interval requests. If there is a valid Interval definition in the Server document, this variable is ignored. There is no default setting. AdminPInterval = minutes There is no UI equivalent, although you can specify this setting in the Notes.ini Settings tab of the Configuration Settings document in the Domino Directory.
AdminPModify
NamesFields

Applies to: Servers

Use this variable to enable AdminP to rename users in plain Names fields during a rename process, when “Modify all Reader and Author fields” is chosen in the ACL. Set the value to 1 to enable this. There is no default setting. AdminPModify
NamesFields = 1
There is no UI equivalent.

AdminpModifyPerson,br /> DocumentsAt = minutes There is no UI equivalent, although you can specify this setting in the Notes.ini Settings tab of the Configuration Settings document in the Domino Directory.
Agent_Design_Update

Applies to: Servers

Since Domino 6, the “OnBehalf” security model allows the agents to run on behalf of the specified user, as long as the agent is signed by the identity that has rights to sign agents on behalf of someone else. The server has this right implicitly. When the design update happens for enabled agents, the agents are disabled and thus stop running. When enabled, this variable restores the earlier behavior of not storing the agent signer in OnBehalf, so the agents remain enabled when a design update occurs.
1 – Does not store agent signer in OnBehalf and keeps agents enabled
2 (default) – Force disabling of agents for design updates
Agent_Design_Update = value There is no UI equivalent.
Allow_Access

Applies to: Servers

Specifies servers, users, and groups that can access a server. You must specify a hierarchical name in hierarchical format, for example, Alice Jones/Acme. An asterisk represents everyone listed in the Domino Directory. An asterisk followed by a view name represents everyone listed in that view of the Domino Directory. An asterisk followed by a slash (/) and a hierarchical certifier’s name represents everyone certified by that certifier. The Deny_Access setting overrides the Allow_Access setting. Allow_Access = names Applies to servers. No default setting. For more information on the Deny_Access setting, see the topic “Deny_Access”.
Allow_Access_portname

Applies to: Servers

Specifies servers, users, and groups that can access a server port. The portname parameter indicates the name of the port you enabled in the Port Setup dialog box and in the Server document. An asterisk represents everyone listed in the Domino Directory. An asterisk followed by a view name represents everyone listed in that view of the Domino Directory. An asterisk followed by a slash (/) and a hierarchical certifier’s name represents everyone certified by that certifier. Allow_Access_lan3 =* (All users listed in the Domino Directory can use the LAN3 port on this server) No default setting.
Allow_Anonymous_Access
_From_DB2

Applies to: Servers

Ordinarily, when Notes data is accessed in SQL, as through a DB2 access view (DAV) user- level security checks are done on the user, through Notes user name – DB2 user name mapping. If you don’t want to use user name mapping, you can control access to DAVs by using DB2’s GRANT mechanism, by adding this setting to the NOTES.INI file on the DB2 Access server. When this NOTES.INI setting is enabled, anonymous access to Notes is used whenever a DB2 user name is not mapped to a Notes user name.
0 – Disables anonymous access
1 – Enables anonymous access through DB2 GRANT mechanism
Allow_Anonymous_Access
_From_DB2 = value
No default setting. Although enabling anonymous access removes the name mapping requirement, Domino still controls access to the DAV. In order to use anonymous access, the Domino server must allow anonymous access and the default access level of the NSF associated with the DAV must provide sufficient rights to perform the requested SQL operation. For example, read permission for SELECTS, author permission for INSERTs, and so forth.

AMgr_DisableMailLookup

Applies to: Servers

By default, a mail-triggered agent performs a mail lookup of the user who last modified it. It only runs if the server running the agent is also the user’s mail server. When users create or modify a mail-triggered agent on a server other than their own mail server, you can use this setting on the server to disable mail lookup so that the agent can run. Notes displays the message for the user “Unable to determine the execution access privileges” if the mail server cannot be reached.
0 – Perform mail lookups when running mail-triggered agents

Console_Log_Enabled = value There is no UI equivalent.
Console_Log_Max
_Kbytes

Applies to: Servers

Sets the maximum size of the Console Log/mirror files. Mirroring makes use of the circular log mechanism; therefore, if mirroring is enabled circular logging, Console_Log_Max_KBytes, is automatically enabled also. When the Console Log wraps, the new mirror file is created. When mirroring is enabled, the default value for Console_Log_Max_KBytes is 100,000 (100 MB) and the maximum value is 1,000,000 (1 GB). When mirroring is enabled, the default value for Console_Log_Max_KBytes is 100,000 (100 MB) and the Maximum value is 1,000,000 (1 GB).

1,000,000 – Maximum value
Console_Log_Max
_Kbytes = value
There is no UI equivalent.
Console_Log_Mirror

Applies to: Servers

Enables the mirroring feature. When mirroring is enabled, all keystrokes are copied to the console log and mirrored, so backspaces may appear in the console logs. When mirroring is enabled, the new Server thread “Console Log Mirror Task” is created. Existing mirror files are deleted if the NOTES.INI setting, Retain_Mirror_Logs, has not been set. A new mirror file is created and is assigned the name of the console log with a number appended to it, where 999 is the maximum appended number. The default console log name is CONSOLE.LOG. As the console log changes, the data is read from the console log and copied to the new mirror log file. Console_Log_Mirror is disabled by default.
0 or not present (default) – Disables console log mirroring
1 – Enables console log mirroring
Console_Log_Mirror = 1 There is no UI equivalent.”

Debug_Fault_Analyzer

Applies to: Servers

If Fault Analyzer is enabled, upon server start-up it reads all of the server configuration documents and desktop policy documents in the local Domino Directory. If any of these documents have a fault reports database specified (DCLoc), Fault Analyzer determines if the database is on the local server and if so will add it to its list of databases to monitor. Every 10 seconds, the process will see if the data-modified time of any of the databases it is monitoring has changed, and if so, will scan for new unprocessed documents to try to match. Use DEBUG_FAULT_ANALYZER to provide debug information for Fault Analyzer as follows:
1 – lists errors
2 – list errors and also show the progression of the code (for example, ‘found 3 matching databases’ or ‘looking for new faults’)
There is no default setting.
Debug_Fault_Analyzer = value There is no UI equivalent.
DEBUG_TRANSLOG
_EXTENTS_PERCENTAGE
_FULL

Applies to: Servers

Allow administrators to specify that the disk be full by a certain percentage before deleting extents, rather than marking them for reuse. There is no default setting. DEBUG_TRANSLOG
_EXTENTS_PERCENTAGE
_FULL = percentage
There is no UI equivalent.
Default_Index_Lifetime
_Days

Applies to: Servers

Specifies a default lifetime for view indexes if none was selected by the database designer in the view properties box. If the index is inactive for the specified number of days, the Indexer task purges the index. For example: Default_Index_Lifetime_Days = 60 sets the lifetime of indexes to 60 days. There is no default setting. Default_Index_Lifetime
_Days = number of days
None, although you can specify this setting in the NOTES.INI Settings tab of the Configuration Settings document in the Domino Directory.
DEFAULT_QV_USER

Applies to: Servers

Use this variable to indicate whether or not to use the default DB2 user, as specified using the Admin Client configuration tab tool. The default name will be retrieved from the server ID. There is no default setting.
0 – Use the default DB2 user
1 – Do not use the default DB2 user
DEFAULT_QV_USER = value There is no UI equivalent.
Deny_Access

Applies to: Servers

Specifies servers, users, and groups that are denied access to the server. You must specify a hierarchical name in hierarchical format, for example, Alice Jones/Acme. An asterisk (*) represents everyone listed in the Domino Directory. An asterisk followed by a view name represents everyone listed in that view of the Domino Directory. An asterisk followed by a slash (/) and a hierarchical certifier’s name represents everyone certified by that certifier. The Deny_Access setting overrides the Allow_Access setting. For more information, see the Allow_Access setting. There is no default setting. Deny_Access = names UI equivalent: The Not Access Server field in the Security tab of the Server document. The Server document takes precedence over the NOTES.INI setting. Domino uses the Deny_Access setting only if the Not Access Server field is empty.
Deny_Access_portname

Applies to: Servers

Specifies servers, users, and groups that are denied access to a specific server port. The portname parameter indicates the name of the port you enabled in the Port Setup dialog box and in the Server document. An asterisk (*) represents everyone listed in the Domino Directory. An asterisk followed by a view name represents everyone listed in that view of the Domino Directory. An asterisk followed by a slash and a hierarchical certifier’s name represents everyone certified by that certifier. For example: Deny_Access_SPX = Terminations. The users in the Terminations group cannot access the SPX port. There is no default setting. Deny_Access_portname = names There is no UI equivalent.
Desktop6

Applies to: Clients

Use this setting to specify the location of the DESKTOP6.DSK file used to customize the Notes workspace. For example:

  • On the Macintosh: Desktop6 = Notes:Desktop
  • In Windows: DESKTOP6 = C:LOTUS\NOTES\
    DESKTOP6.DSK

There is no default setting, although if this setting is omitted, Notes looks for the file DESKTOP6.DSK in the Notes Data directory.

Desktop6 = path There is no UI equivalent.
DIIOPConfigUpdate
Interval

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the time interval, in minutes, at which DIIOP should refresh its configuration data from the Domino Directory. The default value is 3 minutes. DIIOPConfigUpdate
Interval = number of minutes
There is no UI equivalent.
DIIOPCookieCheck
Address

Applies to: Servers

Modifies the behavior of server-based cookies used with applets that are downloaded by the Domino HTTP server. Set the value to 1 to enable the checking of client IP addresses for these cookies. The default value is 0 (disabled), which means that DIIOP will not require the client’s IP address using one of these cookies to match the IP address of the client to whom the cookie was issued. Client IP addresses will not match in most cases because the cookie is issued to the browser using the HTTP protocol, which is typically routed through proxy servers and therefore the client appears to be the proxy server. While the user of the cookie is the applet running in the browser, its network traffic does not go through a proxy server. DIIOPCookieCheck
Address = value
There is no UI equivalent.
DIIOPCookieTimeout

Applies to: Servers

Modifies the behavior of server-based cookies used with applets that are downloaded by the domino HTTP server. It specifies the time period (number of minutes) for which each cookie is valid. When a cookie expires it cannot be used to obtain a session with the DIIOP task. The minimum setting is 1 minute. The default value is 10 minutes. DIIOPCookieTimeout = number of minutes There is no UI equivalent.
DIIOP_Debug_Invoke

Applies to: Servers

Use for debugging only. It provides a level of logging beyond that of DIIOPLogLevel. Each transaction that the DIIOP task receives is logged along with the object ID that was the target, as well as the session ID. Valid values are:
1 – Show transaction details when a transaction finishes
2 – Show transaction details when a transaction starts.
There is no default value.
DIIOP_Debug_Invoke = value There is no UI equivalent.
DIIOP_DUP_KEYRING

Applies to: Servers

To use SSL with DIIOP/NCSO and the remoted back-end classes, the Domino server must first be configured for SSL. When SSL is configured on a server, a keyring is created to contain the server certificates. A Domino server keyring has the file extension .kyr and is specified in the server document and in the Internet site document. Each Domino server that uses SSL must have a trusted root certificate from a certificate authority in its server keyring file. TrustedCerts.class is also a keyring that only contains the public certificate server’s signer, also known as the trusted root certificate. TrustedCerts.class is automatically created by DIIOP, using the server’s or Internet site key ring(s), when DIIOP is configured to listen on the SSL port. It is typically found under the domino\java directory. The server will accept DIIOP SSL sessions from a remote Java client to encrypt the network traffic. DIIOP SSL currently does not support authentication with client certificates. When the Java client and the Domino server share a trusted root, they can establish an encrypted network session. The Notes.ini setting DIIOP_DUP_KEYRING = classname creates a Java class file that contains the same certificates that are in the TrustedCerts.class, but the class name can be user specified. The class name can be used as a parameter to the methods, below, by including -ORBSSLCertificates = classname in the string array argument.

  • static public String getIOR(String host, String args[])
  • static public String getIOR(String host, String args[], String user, String passwd)

There is no default value.

DIIOP_DUP_KEYRING = class name There is no UI equivalent.
DIIOPDNSLookup

Applies to: Servers

Specifies that DIIOP should do a DNS name lookup for every client that connects and uses DIIOP services. This information is visible when using the server console command “show tasks.” Set the value to 1 to enable DNS lookups for clients. The default value is 0 (disabled). DIIOPDNSLookup = value There is no UI equivalent.
DIIOPIgnorePortLimits

Applies to: Servers

This parameter is only valid on a Linux platform. It indicates that DIIOP may use the default ports of 63148 and 63149. On some Linux installations, the default ports are not available for use and DIIOP will automatically select ports 60148 and 60149. Set this value to 1 to use the higher numbered ports. The default value is 0 (use default ports). DIIOPIgnorePortLimits = value There is no UI equivalent. Prior to Domino 6, this variable was known as DIIOP_IGNORE_PORT _LIMITS. It is still valid for backwards compatibility.
DIIOPIORHost

Applies to: Servers

To have DIIOP advertise its existence using an alternate hostname or IP address, you can set DIIOPIORHost to an alternate host name or address other than the server default. The server default is based on the value specified in the Server document setting “Fully qualified Internet host name.” The default value is to use the setting in the Server document. DIIOPIORHost = host name The preferred method of setting this value is through the Server document, on the DIIOP section of the Internet Protocols tab. Prior to Domino 6, this variable was known as DIIOP_IOR_HOST. It is still valid for backwards compatibility.
DIIOPLogLevel

Applies to: Servers

This parameter increases the level of information that DIIOP reports to the server console and to the log. This value can be set manually by modifying the NOTES.INI directly or it can be set using the “tell diiop log=n” command. Possible values are:
0 – Show Errors & Warnings only
1 – Also show informational messages
2 – Also show session init/term messages
3 – Also show session statistics
4 – Also show transaction messages
DIIOPLogLevel = value There is no UI equivalent.
Dircat_Include
_Readerslist_Notes

Applies to: Servers

When set to 1 the Dircat task aggregates documents that contain Readers lists. Users that are not in the Readers lists can nevertheless read these documents in the directory catalog. There is no default setting. Without this setting the Dircat task does not aggregate documents that contain Readers lists. Note that even users who are included in the Readers list cannot access the documents through the directory catalog. Dircat_Include
_Readerslist_Notes = value
There is no UI equivalent.
Dircat_Include
_Readerslist_Notes

Applies to: Servers

Have the Dircat task aggregate documents that contain Readers lists. Dircat does not do this by default. Dircat_Include
_Readerslist_Notes = value
There is no UI equivalent.
Directory

Applies to: Servers and clients

Specifies the location of the Data directory for Domino or Notes. This path is originally set during the Install program. The default is C:\LOTUS\NOTES\DATA, or the directory specified during the Install program. Directory = path UI equivalent: File – Preferences – User Preferences – Basics – Local database folder
Disable_Cluster_Replicator

Applies to: Servers

Use this setting to disable/enable cluster replication.
0 – Cluster replication enabled
1 – Cluster replication disabled
There is no default setting, but cluster replication is on by default.
Disable_Cluster_Replicator = value There is no UI equivalent.
DisableLDAPOnAdmin

Applies to: Servers

If you do not want to run the LDAP service on any server in a domain, you can stop the LDAP service from running on the administration server for the Domino Directory. Set this INI setting to 1, and remove LDAP from the ServerTasks Notes.ini setting. DisableLDAPOnAdmin = value There is no UI equivalent.
Disable_SaveServerConfig

Applies to: Servers

At server startup, the automatic collection of files containing server configuration information, including NSD files, can be disabled through this variable. Set Disable_SaveServerConfig = 0 to disable this feature. See Disable_SaveNSDConfig for more information. Disable_SaveServerConfig = value There is no UI equivalent.
Disable_View_Rebuild_Opt

Applies to: Servers

Use this setting to enable/disable the view rebuild optimization feature, which presorts the view entries in temporary files before inserting them into the view index. Use the following values for this setting:
0 – Enables
1 – Disables
There is no default setting, although the view rebuild optimization feature is enabled in Domino by default.
Disable_View_Rebuild_Opt = value There is no UI equivalent.
DisabledPorts

Applies to: Servers and clients

This setting indicates which ports are disabled for the server or workstation. Ports are enabled/disabled in Server documents (servers) and in the User Preferences dialog box (workstations). There is no default setting. DisabledPorts = port name(s) On a workstation, see the Ports tab in the User Preferences dialog box (choose File – Preferences – User Preferences). On a server, see the Port tab in the Server document.
DisableLDAPOnAdmin

Applies to: Servers

If set to DisableLDAPOnAdmin = 1 prevents the LDAP task from running on the administration server of the Domino Directory for a domain. Since this administration server manages the schema and verifies the directory tree for all servers in the domain that run the LDAP service, use this setting only if you do not run the LDAP task on any server in a domain. To disable the LDAP service on the Domino Directory administration server, you must also remove the LDAP task from the server’s ServerTasks NOTES.INI setting. To prevent the LDAP task on the Domino Directory administration server from processing LDAP requests but still allow it to manage the schema and verify the directory tree for other servers in the domain that run the LDAP service, disable the ports for the LDAP service on the administration server. There is no default setting. DisableLDAPOnAdmin = value There is no UI equivalent.
DisplayFontAdjustment

Applies to: Clients

Varies the display font of the client by a degree proportionate to the number. Negative numbers make the font smaller; positive numbers make it bigger. Values range from -25 to 25. There is no default setting. DisplayFontAdjustment = n There is no UI equivalent.
Display_MessageID

Applies to: Servers

Enables the display of the hexadecimal Message ID (MID) for events written to the Domino console. The MID is usually equivalent to the resource ID for that string in the Domino resource table. The console will print them in curly braces, following a {Module:MID:SC} format. MIDs and SCs can be toggled individually.
0 – Disables the MID display for events written to the console
1 – Enables the MID display for events written to the console
The default setting is disabled.
Display_MessageID = value There is no UI equivalent.
Display_MessageSeverity

Applies to: Servers

Enables the display of the hexadecimal Severity codes (SC) for events written to the Domino console. The console will print them in curly braces, following a {Module:MID:SC} format. MIDs and SCs can be toggled individually.
0 – Disables the SC display for events written to the console
1 – Enables the SC display for events written to the console
The default setting is disabled.
Display_MessageSeverity = value There is no UI equivalent.
Domain

Applies to: Servers and clients

On a server, specifies the server’s domain. On a workstation, specifies the domain of the user’s mail server. This setting must contain at least one default name. Domain = name On a server, the Domain Name field in the Basics tab of the Server document; on a workstation, the Domain field in the Mail tab in the user’s Person document.
DominoComplete
DocType

Applies to: Servers

Use any of the following values for this .INI variable to have the Domino Web server product various doctype strings in the generated HTML:
0 (default) – <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN”>
1 – <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/
html4/loose.dtd”>
2 – <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/
html4/strict.dtd”>
DominoComplete
DocType = value
There is no UI equivalent.
DominoDisableFile
UploadChecks

Applies to: Servers

Stops the Domino server from checking to see if a file upload is coming from a file upload control. This allows developers to code HTML file upload files and have uploads complete successfully. There is no default. DominoDisableFile
UploadChecks = value
There is no UI setting for this Notes.ini variable.
DominoDisableLast
ModifiedWithETAGS

Applies to: Servers

If the Domino Web server is using ETag headers, set this variable to 1 so the server will not generate Last-Modified headers. The variable only has an effect if the Web server generates ETags. This setting will be ignored if any of the following are true:

  • DominoDisableETags is set to 0.
  • The HTTP 1.0 protocol is being used.
  • The user has specified a Last-Modified header with @SetHTTPHeader function.

There is no default setting.

DominoDisableLast
ModifiedWithETAGS = value
There is no UI equivalent.
DominoDisablePassthru
HTML

Applies to: Servers

This setting allows the server to disable the recognition of passthru HTML characters, thus allowing any HTML enclosed to be treated as regular text. This means that the marked rich text is ignored and treated as it would be if it were not marked. This setting affects rendering (Web server generated output), not input. Thus, someone can still post an item that has the passthru html in it, but it won’t be interpreted as such when the Web server generates output HTML.

  • Passthru html is enabled
  • Disable passthru only for text delimited with [< >]
  • Disable all passthru for text marked as passthru with the Notes editor, using Text – Pass-thru HTML, or specifying a paragraph style “HTML”

Having two levels of disabling passthru allows administrators to eliminate any external threat — such as passthru added by someone from the Web — but allows applications written using the Notes editor style of passthru to continue working (for example, the mail template). Setting of DominoDisablePassThruHTML does not affect if and how the notes client treats passthru html, or other ways of putting “raw” html into a document (for example, marking a form as content type html or putting a field named HTML on the document). There is no default setting.

DominoDisablePassthru
HTML = value
There is no UI equivalent.
DominoMultiPart
PostBufferSize

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the number of megabytes to allocate to the memory buffer. The size of the buffer can be affected by the Notes.ini variable DSAPI_MAX_POST_DATA_BUFF_SIZE. If DSAPI_MAX_POST_DATA_BUFF_SIZE is greater than DominoMultiPartPostBufferSize, than the maximum buffer size is set to DSAPI_MAX_POST_DATA_BUFF_SIZE. By default, DSAPI_MAX_POST_DATA_BUFF_SIZE is set to 1 MB and cannot exceed 100 MB. Therefore, DominoMultiPartPostBufferSize has a 10 MB minimum and a 100 MB maximum. The default setting is 10 MB. DominoMultiPart
PostBufferSize = value
There is no UI equivalent.
DominoMultiPart
PostBufferSize

Applies to: Servers

The size of the buffer can be affected by the NOTES.INI variable DSAPI_MAX_POST_DATA_BUFF_SIZE. If DSAPI_MAX_POST_DATA_BUFF_SIZE is greater then DominoMultiPartPostBufferSize, than the maximum buffer size will be set to DSAPI_MAX_POST_DATA_BUFF_SIZE. By default, DSAPI_MAX_POST_DATA_BUFF_SIZE is set to 1 megabyte and cannot exceed 100 megabytes. Therefore, DominoMultiPartPostBufferSize has a 10 megabyte minimum and a 100 megabyte maximum. Default setting is 10 MB. DominoMultiPart
PostBufferSize = n, where n is the number of megabytes to allocate to the memory buffer
There is no UI equivalent.
DominoNoBanner

Applies to: Servers

Web pages created with Domino display a Domino banner in source headers, as follows:
<HTML>
<! — Lotus-Domino Release [release number] – [date of release] on [platform] –>
<HEAD>
Use the DominoNoBanner setting to hide/display the banner.
0 – Displays the banner
1 (default) – Hides the banner. This option provides greater default security
Disable all passthru for text marked astpassthru with the Notes editor, using Text – Pass-thru HTML, or specifying a paragraph style “HTML.” Having two levels of disabling passthru allows administrators to eliminate any external threat — such as passthru added by someone from the Web — but allows applications written using the Notes editor style of passthru to continue working (for example, the mail template). Setting of DominoDisablePassThruHTML does not affect if and how the notes client treats passthru html, or other ways of putting “raw” html into a document (for example, marking a form as content type html or putting a field named HTML on the document). There is no default setting.
DominoNoBanner = value There is no UI equivalent.
DominoNoDirLinks

Applies to: Servers

On a Web server, specifies whether browser users can use directory links. Options are:
0 (default) – Allow browser users to access directory links
1 – Prevent browser users from accessing directory links
DominoNoDirLinks = value There is no UI equivalent.
DominoNoWebAdmin

Applies to: Servers

Specifies whether or not the HTTP server task automatically creates and manages the Domino Web Administrator (webadmin.nsf) application. There is no default setting.
0 – Creates/manages the webadmin.nsf application automatically
1 – The HTTP server task does not create/manage the webadmin.nsf application
DominoNoWebAdmin = value There is no UI equivalent, although you can specify this setting in the NOTES.INI Settings tab of the Configuration Settings document in the Domino Directory.
DominoR5IntlURL
Decoding

Applies to: Servers

Use DominoR5IntlURLDecoding to enable decoding of international URL strings using a proprietary encoding scheme.
0 (default) – Disables Domino 5 international URL decoding. By default, Domino 6 encodes URLs according to the IRI (International Resource Identifiers) standard and does not decode URL strings encoded by Domino 5.
1 – Enables Domino 5 international URL decoding
DominoR5IntlURL
Decoding = value
There is no UI equivalent.
DominoValidate
FramesetSRC

Applies to: Servers

If this variable is set to1 and the Web Server OpenFrameSet command has a Src argument, the argument’s value is validated to insure that it designates a design note in the same database as the fraemset being opened. This prevents improper use of the Src argument to redirect browsers to arbitrary web sites (a possible security vulnerability) Note that the Src and Frame arguments are used by the autoframe feature and are not intended for general use. There is no default setting. DominoValidate
FramesetSRC = value
There is no UI equivalent.
DominoXURLProcess

Applies to: Servers

Use DominoXURLProcess to enable a Domino Web server’s URL command parser to accept ‘!’ as an alternative query component separator.
0 (default) – Disables ‘!’ as an alternative query component separator. By default, Domino does not recognize ‘!’ as an alternative query component separator.
1 – Enables ‘!’ as an alternative query component separator
DominoXURLProcess = value There is no UI equivalent.
Dont_Cache_Monitor
_Formulas

Applies to: Servers

When system mail rules or headlines are used on a Domino server, the server keeps in memory the list of databases affected so that when a note is updated, databases that must react to note updates can be found quickly and the action taken. By default, if the action involves a programatic check, such as a system mail rule, the code to perform that check is cached as well. On a server with many such monitors, the memory required to cache the code to perform the monitoring may be so big that normal server operations are affected. Use this variable to prevent caching of the compute objects for. This greatly reduces memory usage at a small cost in processing power. There is no default setting. Dont_Cache_Monitor
_Formulas = 1
There is no UI equivalent.
Dont_Use_Remembered
_Addresses

Applies to: Servers

When initially connecting to a server, Domino 7 tries all the addresses for all the ports for that server until one works. To speed up subsequent server searching, Notes and Domino default to caching the last successful port and address for a server and use only the cached address for the rest of the day. This makes attempts to connect to a server that is down very fast. If an administrator plans to change the address of a server, it should be done late in the evening, since the cache is not used again the next day. This works well for servers that have only one address. However, if the server has multiple valid addresses (it can be multi-homed with multiple IPV4 addresses, or it can have both IPV6 and IPV4 addresses), and a successful address for a server is unavailable, the remaining addresses won’t be tried until the next day, when the server cache is cleared. In order to bypass the cache, and have the Domino server try all addresses for a given server, you must set this notes.ini variable. Doing so will cause slower server connection failures when servers go down, because every connection attempt will try every port and every address.
0 (default) – Domino server will use port and address from the cache
1 – Domino server will try all ports and addresses for a given server
Dont_Use_Remembered
_Addresses = value
There is no UI equivalent.
DST

Applies to: Servers and clients

Specifies that a server or workstation observe daylight saving time:
0 – Do not observe daylight saving time
1 (default) – Observe daylight saving time
When you select this option, the created/modified time for documents created or modified from the second Sunday in March through the first Sunday in November are time-stamped one hour later than the server’s system time. This option lets you adjust for daylight saving time without changing the actual system time.
DST = value On a workstation, the Daylight saving time field is on the Basics tab in the Advanced tab in the Location document; on a server, the Daylight saving time field is in the Server document. For information on additional ways to adjust the time stamp for daylight savings time, see “DST_Begin_Date,” “DST_End_Date,” and “DSTlaw.”
DSTlaw

Applies to: Servers

Specifies when daylight saving time (DST) is observed. By default, the DST period is defined as the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November. (This is the period during which DST is observed in the United States.) The variables begin_month, begin_week, and begin_day define the month, week, and day, respectively, when DST begins. The variables end_month, end_week, and end_day define when DST ends. Months are 1 (January) through 12 (December); weeks are 1 through 4; days are 1 (Sunday) through 7 (Saturday). You use negative numbers to specify the weeks, where -1 is the last week of the month, -2 is the second to last week, and so on. For example, the default setting for this variable is 3 -3 1 11 -4 1 (The second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November). DSTlaw = begin_month, begin_week, begin_day, end_month, end_week, end_day None. For information on additional ways to adjust the time stamp for daylight savings time, see “DST,” “DST_Begin_Date,” and “DST_End_Date.”
DST_Begin_Date

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the date when daylight saving time begins, specified in dd/mm/year format. In most cases, this parameter is not necessary. Some regions of the world do not recognize the beginning of daylight saving time on the second Sunday in March. If your server is in a region where this is true, use this parameter to specify the exact date when DST begins. Use this setting along with DST_End_Date, which specifies when daylight saving time ends. There is no default setting, although if this setting is omitted, daylight saving time begins the first Sunday in April. DST_Begin_Date = dd/mm/year There is no UI equivalent. For information on additional ways to adjust the time stamp for daylight saving, see “DST,” “DST_End_Date,” and “DSTlaw.”
DST_End_Date

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the date when daylight saving time ends, specified in dd/mm/year format. In most cases, this parameter is not necessary. Some regions of the world do not recognize the ending of daylight saving time as the last Sunday in October. If your server is in a region where this is true, use this parameter to specify the exact date when DST ends. Use this setting along with DST_Begin_Date, which specifies when daylight saving time begins. There is no default setting, although if this setting is omitted, daylight saving time ends the last Sunday in October. DST_End_Date = dd/mm/year There is no UI equivalent. For information on additional ways to adjust the time stamp for daylight saving, see “DST,” “DST_Begin_Date,” and “DSTlaw.”
Notes.ini settings: E
Setting Description Example Comment
EmptyTrash

Applies to: Clients

Specifies when and how the Trash folder will be purged of documents marked for deletion. Options are:
0 (default) – Prompt the user before closing the database
1 – Always empty the Trash folder before closing the database
2 – Empty the Trash folder manually
EmptyTrash = value UI equivalent: File – Preferences – User Preferences – Basics – Empty Trash folder
Enable_ACL_Files

Applies to: Servers

Specifies whether or not to enable ACL file checking on a server. ACL files are an option for protecting server directories, and contain the names of users authorized to access those directories. Servers in xSP configurations enable this feature by default. In an xSP configuration, an individual ACL file is automatically created for each individual hosted organization, to prevent users in one hosted organization from traversing a directory that belongs to another hosted organization.
0 – Disable ACL file checking (default for non-XSP configurations)
1 – Enable ACL file checking (default for xSP configurations)
Enable_ACL_Files = value There is no UI equivalent
EnableBiDiNotes

Applies to: Clients

Use this variable to toggle the support for bi-directional Languages (for example Arabic or Hebrew).
0 (default) – Turns BiDirectional support off
1 – Turns BiDirectional support on
EnableBiDiNotes = value There is no UI equivalent
Enforce_Personal
_Agents

Applies to: Servers

Used for running agents in a transitional environment, for example a Domino 6 server and Notes 5 clients and templates. Notes 6.0 users with LotusScript rights are automatically granted personal agent rights. If this variable is enabled, users who have LotusScript rights are not granted personal agent rights unless they are explicitly listed in the Server record or if the Personal agents field is blank. .
0 (default) – do not enforce personal agents
1 – enforce personal agents
Enforce_Personal
_Agents = value
There is no UI equivalent
Event_Pool_Size

Applies to: Servers

Use this variable to specify the amount of memory used for unprocessed events, unprocessed notifications, and event suppression. The default setting is 10 MB. The minimum setting is 5 MB and the maximum setting is 100 MB.

  • As a best practice, setting this variable to the maximum of 100 MB will help if the Event Monitor is temporarily overloaded.
  • Changes in this parameter require quitting and restarting the server, or use of the “restart server” command. More specifically, it requires release of the Domino shared memory in which the pool is stored. This means that any Notes client, Domino program, or Notes API program from another vendor, which is running from the same Domino data directory, must also be stopped. If there are several such programs from other vendors running (as with Windows NT services), it may be simpler to shut down and restart the system.
  • If you use the parameter Event_Pool_Size = 5,242,880 on AIX or iSeries, this will prevent HTTP from starting. You cannot use commas in the memory size value. This parameter would have to be set as Event_Pool_Size = 5242880 on the iSeries platform.
Event_Pool_Size = value There is no UI equivalent.
ExtMgr_AddIns

Applies to: Servers and clients

Defines the list of add-in files for the Extension Manager. Domino or Notes reads this variable on initialization and then attempts to load the specified library or libraries. For example:

ExtMgr_AddIns=logdll,amgrdll
In addition, you can use ExtMgr_AddIns to add one or more custom Extension Manager applications. The name of the add-in file may begin with the platform specifier character N under Windows. This character may be omitted when using the ExtMgr_AddIns setting. There is no default setting.

ExtMgr_AddIns = value1, value2, value3… There is no UI equivalent
Notes.ini settings: F
Setting Description Example Comment
Fault_Analyzer
_Match_Percentage

Applies to: Servers

Fault Analyzer is an aspect of the Automatic Diagnostic Collection that allows client and server crashes that occur at customer sites to be automatically matched against known crashes to determine if there are any matches. If the crash results from a known issue that is fixed in a release subsequent to that at the customer site, IBM/Lotus provides the optional configuration to download the upgrade kit into the Smart Upgrade database to enable the user to upgrade to resolve the problem. The formula used to determine a partial match between the two stacks depends on the average length of the stacks. If the average stack length is:

  • 4 — 100% (exact match)
  • 4 — at least 75% of the stack has to match
  • 5-7 — at least 60% of the stack has to match
  • 8 — at least 40% of the stack has to match

However, this can be overidden by using the Fault_Analyzer_Match_Percentage .ini variable, which applies the specified percentage to the number of matching function names in the two stacks, regardless of average stack length. There is no default setting.

Fault_Analyzer_
Match_Percentage = percentage
There is no UI equivalent
FaultRecoveryFromINI

Applies to: Servers

Because fault recovery runs after an exception has occurred, it makes use of operating system features, rather than relying on Domino’s internal facilities. The fault-recovery system, therefore, is initialized before the Domino Directory can be read. During this initialization, fault-recovery settings are read from the NOTES.INI file, then later read from the Domino Directory and saved back to the NOTES.INI file. Any changes to the Domino Directory or the NOTES.INI file become effective when the Domino server is restarted.
0 (default)- Enable the reading of the Domino Directory and subsequent update to the NOTES.INI file
1 – Disable the reading of the Domino Directory and subsequent update to the NOTES.INI file
However, this can be overidden by using the Fault_Analyzer_Match_Percentage .ini variable, which applies the specified percentage to the number of matching function names in the two stacks, regardless of average stack length. There is no default setting.
FaultRecoveryFromINI = value There is no UI equivalent
FileDlgDirectory

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the default directory for all file searches. If you specify this setting, Domino looks only in the specified location. There is no default setting, although if this setting is omitted, Domino searches the Domino Data directory. FileDlgDirectory = path There is no UI equivalent
Fixup_Tasks

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the maximum number of Fixup tasks that are created at server startup. A Fixup task performs a consistency check on any database that requires it. Server initialization continues while Fixup tasks run. The default setting is twice the number of CPUs on the system. Fixup_Tasks = number of tasks There is no UI equivalent
FormulaTimeout

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the time period, in seconds, in which a formula is allowed to run. There is no default setting. FormulaTimeout = time in seconds There is no UI equivalent
FT_Domain_
Directory_Name

Applies to: Servers

Allows users and administrators to select the location and name of the domain index. By default, the domain index is located in the Domino data directory and is named FTDOMAIN.DI. If an alternate location is specified using this setting, Domino will support directory links and index relocation. There is no default setting; if this setting is omitted, the Domain Index is located in the Domino data directory. FT_Domain_
Directory_Name = directory
There is no UI equivalent
FT_Domain_IdXthdsS

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the number of indexing threads to use for Domain Search. Using more threads lets the Domain Catalog server index more files simultaneously, but requires more CPU utilization, and response to search queries may be slow. With fewer indexing threads, search speeds up because of greater CPU a vailability, but changes are not reflected in the index as quickly. There is no default setting, although if this setting is omitted, the default number of threads used is two per CPU. For example, a server with two CPUs uses four indexing threads by default when indexing. Do not exceed eight threads per server or you may degrade the performance of the server, even on servers with more than four CPUs. FT_Domain_IdXthds = number of threads There is no UI equivalent
FT_Index
_Attachments

Applies to: Servers

Specifies whether to exclude types of document attachments in the Domain Index that are not already excluded by default. A value of 1 includes these document attachments in the index, and a value of 2 excludes them. The following types of attachments are excluded from the Domain Index by default: .au, .cca, .dbd, .dll, .exe, .gif, .img, .jpg, .mp3, .mpg, .mov, .nsf, .ntf, .p7m, .p7s, .pag, .sys, .tar, .tif, .wav, .wpl, .zip. The default setting is 1. FT_Index
_Attachments = value
There is no UI equivalent
FT_Intl_Setting

Applies to: Clients

Imposes several limitations on full text functionality to let Notes work properly with the Japanese language. When enabled (set to 1), this setting turns off stemming, makes all full text indexes case-sensitive, and ignores the setting for the stop word file. There is no default setting. FT_Intl_Setting = language There is no UI equivalent
FT_Max_Search
_Results

Applies to: Servers and clients

Specifies the maximum number of results (up to 2147483647) that can be retrieved at one time on a database without any index. For example: FT_Max_Search_Results = 10000 allows a single NotesDatabase or NotesDocumentCollection “FTSearch” to return up to 10000 entries. Default setting is 5000. FT_Max_Search
_Results = number of entries
There is no UI equivalent
FT_No_Compwintitle

Applies to: Servers

Specifies whether the Domain Catalog server computes the window titles for documents that are returned by a search.
XXX (default)- Computes document window titles
1 – Omits the computation of document window titles, thus conserving CPU.
FT_No_Compwintitle = value There is no UI equivalent
FTG_No_Summary

Applies to: Servers

Specifies whether document summaries can be displayed in search results. If you use server access lists within a domain to limit access to information, you might need to check the ACLs of databases on those servers to ensure that results are filtered. Otherwise, a search might return a result to a user who cannot access the result document. If the Domain Catalog server is on a Windows system, search results can include document summaries whereby users might be able to discern confidential information. If you are running Domino on Windows and are not sure that you can properly maintain database ACLs to prevent this, you might want to disable document summaries by using this setting in the Domain Catalog server’s NOTES.INI file. For information on Domain Search security, see the chapter “Setting Up Domain Search” in the Domino Administration Help. See also Domain Search Security.
XXX (default)- Allows the display of document summaries in search results.
1 – Prevents the display of document summaries in search results.
FTG_No_Summary = value There is no UI equivalent.
FT_Summ_
Default_Language

Applies to: Clients

Specifies the language for a document summary in search results whenever the language in the document is not supported. Valid values (supported languages) are as follows. If a locale’s native language is not supported, use a value of NULL or english.

  • bokmal
  • danish
  • default (You can use this value for the locale’s native language, if supported.)
  • dutch
  • english
  • finnish
  • french
  • german
  • italian
  • NULL (English will be the language used.)
  • nynorsk
  • portugue (Use this value for the Portuguese language.)
  • spanish
  • swedish
FT_Summ_
Default_Language = value
There is no UI equivalent.

Applies to: Servers (Domino 7 only)

Use this variable if the FT index thread is running to specify the number of milliseconds between full text indexes. Default value is 5. FTUpdate_Idle
_Time_MS = number of milliseconds
None.
Notes.ini settings: G
Setting Description Example UI Eqivalent
GuessMIMEBodyLang

Applies to: Client

Applies to Domino Web Access. Use this setting so that Domino Web Access will determine which character set group to use based on the language used in the body of e-mail messages. By default, Domino Web Access determines the character set for e-mail being sent, based on settings in the Configuration Settings document (MIME – Settings by Character Set Groups tab). When GuessMIMEBodyLang is set to 0 (default), and the “Use UTF-8 for outout” setting in Server document (Internet Protocols – Domino Web Engine tab) is turned on, Unicode is used as the character set group. When this is set to 1, Domino Web Access guesses the language of the mail body and uses that language for the character set group. GuessMIMEBodyLang = value There is no UI equivalent
Notes.ini settings: H
Setting Description Example Comment
Health_Report_Purge
_After_N_Days

Applies to: Servers

Used for server health monitoring. N is the number of days that historical documents remain in the database. By default, historical reports are purged from the database after seven days. To override the default, add this variable to the NOTES.INI file, and specify the number of days for which historical documents remain in the database. Default setting is 7 days. Health_Report_Purge
_After_N_Days = number of days
There is no UI equivalent.
HidePromptFailoverInc

Applies to: Clients

When the server that holds an application is no longer responding, the user is prompted to choose whether Notes should switch to a replica on another server. This INI variable allows users to suppress this prompt — the failover just occurs.
0 (default) – The user is prompted when a server is not responding.
1 – Prompts to the user are suppressed when a server is not responding. (This does not prevent Notes from failing over.)
HidePromptFailoverInc = value There is no UI equivalent.
HTTPDisableMethods

Applies to: Servers

If you are using the Web Configurations view instead of Internet Sites, you can disable HTTP methods by setting this variable with a value of the method name. For example, to disable the TRACE method, you would enter HTTPDisableMethods = TRACE. HTTPDisableMethods = method name There is no UI equivalent.
HTTPEnableConnector
Headers

Applies to: Servers

Enables the Domino HTTP task to process special headers that are added to requests by a WebSphere 4.0.3 plug-in installed on a foreign Web server. When the plug-in relays an HTTP request to the Domino back-end server, the plug-in adds headers that include information about the front-end server’s configuration and user authentication status. As a security measure, the HTTP task ignores these headers if the setting is not enabled. This prevents an attack via plug-in mimicking.
0 (default) – The Domino HTTP task does not process the special headers.
1 – The Domino HTTP task does process the special headers.
HTTPEnableConnector
Headers = value
There is no UI equivalent.
HTTPLogUnauthorized

Applies to: Servers

When set to 1, the Web Server logs Error 401 instances to the server console. These instances are generated when a user attempts to access a resource but is not authorized for it, or when a user has failed to authenticate. There is no default setting. Without this setting, Error 401 instances are not logged to the server console. With or without this setting, Error 401 instances are logged to the Web Server logs. HTTPLogUnauthorized = value There is no UI equivalent.
HTTP_PWD_CHANGE
_CACHE_HOURS

Applies to: Servers

Use this Notes.ini parameter to configure the length of time that the information is cached. Once the information times out from the cache, the user can only log in using the password that can be verified against the password information found by the server in the Domino Directory. By default, the cached new Internet password is honored by the HTTP server for 48 hours. HTTP_PWD_CHANGE
_CACHE_HOURS = number of hours
There is no UI equivalent.
Notes.ini settings: I
Setting Description Example Comment
ICMNotesPort

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the name of the Notes network port for TCP/IP that you are linking the Internet Cluster Manager (ICM) service with. This setting is required for a partitioned server hosting the ICM service, and for a single server hosting that service if the server has more than one Notes port for TCP/IP. There is no default setting. ICMNotesPort = port name There is no UI equivalent.
ID_Recovery_Suppress
_Recovery_Msg

Applies to: Clients

Prior to Domino 7, if an administrator updated ID recovery information, a memo was generated that administrators could use to notify users that their ID recovery information has been updated, and to prompt them to accept recovery information into their user ID. Administrators can use this variable to suppress the creation of this memo, as it is no longer necessary for users to manually accept recovery information. There is no default setting. This option is not enabled if the Notes.INI variable is not present in the .INI file. ID_Recovery_Suppress
_Recovery_Msg = 1
There is no UI equivalent.
IM_Enable_SSO

Applies to: Servers

Instant Messaging (IM) is included in the Notes client installation, and is installed when you install the Notes client. As an administrator, you can include IM in single sign-on with Lotus Notes and push this feature down to users through dynamic configuration through the NOTES.INI variable, IM_ENABLE_SSO. If this variable is set to 1, IM with single sign on is enabled; if this variable is set to 0 (zero), single sign on for IM is disabled. There is no default value. IM_Enable_SSO = value Setting in User Preferences dialog box
IMAILExactSize

Applies to: Servers

Specifies that the IMAP service report the exact size of a MIME message when requested by a client.
0 (default) – The IMAP service estimates the message size
1 – The IMAP service reports the exact message size
By default, the IMAP service estimates the message size. This helps improve server performance. Set this to 1 only if clients require the exact size.
IMAILExactSize = value There is no UI equivalent.
IMAP_Config
_Update_Interval

Applies to: Servers

Specifies in minutes how frequently the IMAP server checks for configuration changes made to the Domino Directory. There is no default setting, although the update interval is 2 minutes if this setting is not included in NOTES.INI file. IMAP_Config
_Update_Interval = number of minutes
There is no UI equivalent.

Certain IMAP properties are not dynamically configured and require you to shut down and restart the service before they go into effect. Also, a given IMAP session uses whatever properties were in effect at the time the session began for the duration of that session; configuration changes apply only to IMAP sessions started after the update occurs.

IMAP_Convert
_Nodisable_Folder_Refs

Applies to: Servers

Specifies whether the mail conversion utility (CONVERT) preserves folder references when updating mail files for use with the Domino 6 IMAP service. There is no default setting, although without this variable, Domino removes folder references during conversion.
0 (or variable not set) – The conversion process disables folder references.
1 – The conversion process preserves folder references.
IMAP_Convert
_Nodisable_Folder_Refs = value
There is no UI equivalent.

In earlier releases of Domino, the IMAP service used folder references in the mail template to retrieve IMAP folder and message data. Because the Domino 6 IMAP service does not use folder references, and preserving folder references retards IMAP performance, by default, when you run the mail conversion utility (CONVERT) to prepare mail files for IMAP use, it removes folder references from the converted mail files. Set this variable only in environments where Domino applications other than the IMAP service use folder references in mail files to track information. When this variable is set, folder references are preserved during all mail file conversions, whether performed manually from the server console, or automatically as the result of an IMAP user logging in to the IMAP service for the first time. Following conversion, the IMAP folder and message data maintained by folder references is initially synchronized with the Domino 6 IMAP information. However, as the Router delivers new messages to the mail file, folder references are not updated.

IMAPDisableFTI
ImmedUpdate

Applies to: Servers

Specifies whether or how the IMAP server will do an immediate FTI update after a new message is appended. This is required for searching for new messages immediately. By default, the IMAP server does an immediate FTI update after a new message is appended.
1 – Suppress the update request (by default, the update suppression time is 15 minutes)
2 – Disable FTI update
IMAPDisableFTI
ImmedUpdate = value
There is no UI equivalent.
IMAPDisableMsgCache

Applies to: Servers

Specifies whether the IMAP server will cache the last fetched message. By default, the IMAP server caches the last fetched message.
1 – Disable the cache
IMAPDisableMsgCache = value There is no UI equivalent.

IMAPGreeting = greeting There is no UI equivalent.
IMAPNotesPort

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the name of the Notes network port for TCP/IP that you are linking the IMAP service with. This setting is required for a partitioned server hosting IMAP, and for a single server hosting it if the server more than one Notes port for TCP/IP. There is no default setting. For information on binding an Internet service to an IP address, see the chapter “Setting Up the Domino Network” in the Domino Administration Help. IMAPNotesPort = port name There is no UI equivalent.
IMAPRedirect
SSLGreeting

Applies to: Servers

Customizes the message the IMAP server sends to clients attempting to connect over TCP/IP when the TCP/IP port is configured to Redirect to SSL. There is no default setting, although without the setting the following greeting is used: IMAP Server configured for SSL Connections only. Please reconnect using the SSL Port portnumber. IMAPRedirect
SSLGreeting = greeting
There is no UI equivalent.
IMAP_Session
_Timeout

Applies to: Servers

Specifies when the IMAP server drops idle IMAP client sessions. We recommend specifying a setting greater than ten minutes; many IMAP clients poll for new mail every ten minutes and the overhead of supporting idle session is less than the overhead required to support clients logging on and opening mailboxes. There is no default setting, although without this setting, the server drops idle sessions after 30 minutes. IMAP_Session
_Timeout = number of minutes
There is no UI equivalent.
IMAPShowIdleStatus

Applies to: Servers

If enabled, the command “sh task” at the server console will show idle IMAP threads. By default, this is disabled. Set the variable to 1 to enable the display of idle IMAP threads. IMAPShowIdleStatus = value There is no UI equivalent.
IMAPSSLGreeting

Applies to: Servers

Customizes the greeting the IMAP server sends to clients connecting over SSL. There is no default, although without the setting the following greeting is used:
* OK Domino IMAP4 Server V4.6 ready Mon, 12 May 1997 17:57:13 -0500
IMAPSSLGreeting = greeting There is no UI equivalent.
IM_No_Setup

Applies to: Clients

Use this variable to allow users to bypass IM Configuration. If this setting is enabled (IM_No_Setup = 1), the IM Config dialog box will not appear during new client setup or client upgrade. In addition, if this variable is enabled, any IM variables in a scripted client setup will be ignored. The default setting is 0 (disabled). IM_No_Setup = value There is no UI equivalent.
IM_USE_CANONICAL
_NAME

Applies to: Clients

Use this variable when your IBM Lotus Instant Messaging server is configured to lookup names in the Notes canonical hierarchical form (for example: CN= John Smith/OU= Sales/O= Acme). The default setting is 0 – Lookup names in the Notes abbreviated hierarchical form (for example: “John Smith/Sales/Acme”). IM_USE_CANONICAL
_NAME = 1
The “Use a canonical name for instant messaging status lookup” on the Instant Messaging – General pane in the User Preferences dialog box.

iNotes_WA_Areas

Applies to: Clients

Applies to Domino Web Access clients. Use this setting to disable any combination of the six functional areas in Domino Web Access: Welcome, Mail, Calendar, To Do, Contacts, or Notebook. Each area can contain a value of 0 to disable an area, or 1 to enable an area. The format is iNotes_WA_Areas = ABCDEF where:

  • A = Welcome
  • B = Mail
  • C = Calendar
  • D = ToDo
  • E = Contacts
  • F = Notebook

Example: In this example, all sections except for Mail and Contacts are disabled: iNotes_WA_Areas = 010010. The default setting is 111111 — if this setting is not used, all functional areas are enabled by default.

iNotes_WA_Areas = value There is no UI equivalent. Added in 8.0

_LogoutRedirect

Applies to: Clients

Applies to all Domino Web Access clients. Use this setting to specify a URL to redirect users to a Web page after logging out from server. The setting provides normal cache clearing with the Domino Web Access control, and clearing of browser credentials. It also allows sites that perform additional actions on a logout, such as logging out of a reverse proxy server, to specify a URL to do this additional activity. You can use this variable to return people to an initial login page. Example: iNotes_WA_LogoutRedirect = http://www.ibm.com iNotes_WA
_LogoutRedirect = URL
There is no UI equivalent. Added in 8.0.
iNotes_WA
_LogoutScrubType

Applies to: Clients

Applies to Domino Web Access IE clients using the Domino Web Access Control. Sets the automatic cache clearing level for the Domino Web Access server.

  • 0<nozeros> – (Default) Best for subsequent Domino Web Access performance. Deletes all URLs that begin with the mail file path, except those that have a strategically placed KeepInCache (&KIC) argument. This argument marks page pieces that contain mostly design. Keeping these pieces in the cache offers a significant performance improvement when next using Domino Web Access. Examples of files deleted from the cache: Parts to a MIME message retrieved via a separate URL. Attachments opened when not using the Domino Web Access control.
  • 1<nozeros> – Deletes all URLs that begin with the mail file path. This is the best balance between Domino Web Access performance and security. It does not impact caching used by other Domino or other web applications, nor does it impact caching of pages on the same Domino server or on other servers. Examples of files deleted from the cache (in addition to those listed for type 0): Most list and calendar view HTML top-level pages. The s_SessionInfo JavaScript page, which contains data about various preferences and relevant Domino Web Access configuration settings. Includes various variants of the current user’s name (common name, abbreviated canonical name, full canonical name). The h_TOC JavaScript page, which contains information about the functional areas available for current user and initial URL information. The s_Outline, which contains information about folder names.
  • 2<nozeros> – Deletes all URLs in the cache that originate from the server hostname, except for URLs that contain /iNotes/Forms7.nsf, the current forms file (or /iNotes/Forms6.nsf ). The best balance of performance and security when the user might access other pages in Domino databases on the same server, or might access Domino Web Access and other reverse proxied intranet sites that might be cached (for example, linking to sites via QuickLinks in the Welcome page or through document links in received mail). For pages accessed via reverse proxy, the server refers to the Reverse Proxy server. Does not impact the performance of other Web sites the user might visit after logout. Examples of files deleted from the cache (in addition to those listed for types 0 and 1): Pages generated from any other Notes or non-Notes Web application on the server In a reverse proxy scenario, pages generated from any other Notes or non-Notes web application on the same server or any other server that is reachable from a reverse proxy server Domino view icons
  • 3<nozeros> – Deletes all URLs in the cache that originate from the server hostname. Provides more security, but impacts Domino Web Access performance negatively for subsequent logons because all cached static script and image pieces are deleted. Does not impact web applications or pages generated from other servers, so does not negatively impact performance of other Web sites the user might visit after logout. Examples of files deleted from the cache (in addition to those listed for Types 0-2) are URLs to /iNotes/Forms6.nsf, as well as Domino Web Access static code pages, images, and style sheet.
  • 4<nozeros> – (Secure option) Deletes all URLs in the cache except for URLs that contain /iNotes/Forms7.nsf, the current forms file (or /iNotes/Forms6.nsf). The best balance of performance and security for Domino Web Access, but may negatively impact the performance of other web applications or pages the user might be using. Examples of files deleted from the cache (beyond those listed for type 0-2) are any external web pages loaded by the Domino Web Access Welcome page, or traversed to via Domino Web Access or any other browser instance.
  • 5<nozeros> -(More Secure option) Deletes all URLs in the cache. Provides the highest security, but has the greatest impact on Domino Web Access performance for subsequent logons since all cached static script and image pieces are deleted. Examples of files deleted from the cache (beyond those listed for all other types) are URLs to /iNotes/Forms7.nsf, the current forms file (or /iNotes/Forms6.nsf), as well as Domino Web Access static code pages, images, and style sheet.

iNotes_WA
_MessageMarkingPrefs

Applies to: Clients

Applies to Domino Web Access clients. Use this setting to enable the Mail – Message Marking user preference in Domino Web Access, so that users can set a user preference to display icons in Mail views that indicate whether they were the only recipient, or one of many. For mail sent to the user’s Notes-style address, these icons indicate whether the user’s name is the only name in the To field, whether it is listed with others in the To field, or whether it is in the cc field.
0 – (default) Domino Web Access users will not be able to set message marking preferences, nor will they be able to modify message marking preferences set in the Notes client.
1 – Domino Web Access users will be able to set message marking preferences, and will they be able to modify message marking preferences set in the Notes client.
If users previously set this feature in the IBM Lotus Notes client, the icons also display in Domino Web Access whether this setting is enabled or not. However, this setting must be enabled to allow users to set or modify this setting from Domino Web Access user preferences.

_PreferWebEngine
CacheControl

Applies to: Clients

Applies to Domino Web Access clients. Domino Web Access now sets Cache-Control response headers that prevent the Domino Web Engine from remapping them in certain scenarios. Previously, the default Domino Web Engine logic did not allow returning a Cache-Control response header for HTTP 1.0 requests, which lead to content being left in the browser cache unintentionally. Use this setting to revert to the prior behavior.

iNotes_WA
_PrintUserStyleSheet

Applies to: Clients

Applies to Domino Web Access. Set this variable to 1, so that you can specify a special user-defined style sheet to control font sizes when printing. For example, in some Linux environments if the display resolution is set lower than default (by editing XF86Config file), text prints larger than expected. When that happens, you can adjust font size using a user-defined style sheet. The style sheet is a file resource named “userPrint.css” in FORMS7.nsf. You can use the style rules in userPrint.css as a template and adjust the style by editing it. To l earn how you can control styles, see the comments in userPrint.css. To edit the style sheet, open FORMS7.nsf in Domino Designer and locate the file in Shared Resources – Files.
0 (default) – Disabled

_SametimeName
Format

Applies to: Clients

Applies to Domino Web Access clients using templates that are iNotes6.NTF or later. Allows you to adjust the format of the name that is passed to Sametime for login, for awareness checking, and whether to pass RFC821 names. The value can contain up to 4 numeric digits in sequence. The default setting is 011.If you set this variable, you override the Configuration Settings document setting “Directory type used by IBM Lotus Sametime server.” Example: iNotes_WA_SametimeNameFormat = 1011 where the following values apply: First digit (left most) — controls the format of the name passed to Sametime routines that prepare links and start chat sessions:
0 – Use abbreviated canonical format (for example, Joe User/Acme) [the default]
1 – Use full canonical format (for example, CN=Joe User/O=Acme)
2 – Use canonical format but use a comma ( , ) as a separator for the name components (for example, CN=Joe User,O=Acme)
3 – Use only the common name (for example, Joe User)

2nd digit — controls whether RFC821 addresses (for example, Joe User@acme.com) should be sent to Sametime:
0 – No, do not send
1 – Yes, do send [the default]
3rd digit — controls the format of the name passed to Sametime login routines:
0 – Use abbreviated canonical format (for example, Joe User/Acme)
1 – Use full canonical format (for example, CN=Joe User/O=Acme) [the default]
2 – Use canonical format but use a comma ( , ) as a separator for the name components (for example, CN=Joe User,O=Acme)
3 – Use only the common name (for example, Joe User)
4 – Use Non-Domino LDAP Distinguished Name (for example cn=Joe User, cn=Users, o=acme, dc=marketing, dc=acme,dc=com). If not available, use the common name.
4th digit — a debug aide. When the user hovers over a link, the name that displays is identical to the name sent to Sametime. Use any character in the fourth position to enable this.

iNotes_WA
_SametimeName
Format = value
In Domino 7 or later, you can use the setting “Directory type used by IBM Lotus Sametime server” in the Configuration Settings document, Domino Web Access tab. However, using this NOTES.INI variable overrides the Configuration Settings document setting.
iNotes_WA
_SametimeProtocol

Applies to: Clients

Applies to all Domino Web Access clients using mail templates that are iNotes6.NTF or later. Set the value to https: or http: if you do not want to use the current Web page’s protocol to access the Instant Messaging server. For example, if the current protocol is http and you want to force the use of https: iNotes_WA_SametimeProtocol = https. The default setting is the current Web page protocol. iNotes_WA
_SametimeProtocol = value
There is no UI equivalent.
iNotes_WA_Sametime
RemoteToken

Applies to: Clients

Applies to Domino Web Access clients. Use this setting when the Domino Web Access server is used in conjunction with a reverse proxy server (such as Tivoli Access Manager) where LtpaToken authentication is not being used. In such scenarios, Domino Web Access must query the server for the authentication Token (as it is not available at the client). When set, this option queries the server for the token name.

  • iNotes_WA_Sametime
    RemoteToken = LtpaToken
  • iNotes_WA_Sametime
    RemoteToken=1 (defaults to tokenname == LtpaToken)

iNotes_wa
_SecMailPreferNotes

Applies to: Clients

Applies to all Domino Web Access clients. By default, Domino Web Access uses S/MIME sign and encryption when both Notes and S/MIME sign and encryption are possible. This could cause problems in a mixed environment that includes both Domino 7 and pre-Domino 7 servers. Pre-Domino 7 servers do not support S/MIME, so messages sent S/MIME signed or encrypted could not be verified or decrypted. Use this setting to turn on Notes sign and encryption when both S/MIME and Notes sign and encryption are possible.
0 – off (default – When both Notes and S/MIME sign and encryption are possible, use S/MIME sign and encryption)
1 – on (When both Notes and S/MIME sign and encryption are possible, use Notes sign/encryption)
iNotes_wa
_SecMailPreferNotes = value

iNotes_WA
_SkipEndIESession

Applies to: Clients

Applies to Domino Web Access IE clients using the Domino Web Access Control. Use this setting to avoid issues with other open Web pages being negatively impacted by a Domino Web Access logout. When the Domino Web Access control is in use, Domino Web Access makes a call to end the IE session as part of a Domino Web Access logout. This clears any login credentials stored in IE memory and in memory cookies being used within this IE process (or any child processes spawned from this process). It is preferable for users to log in to other web sites through a separate instance of IE, instead of using this setting. Users can start the additional instances from the desktop, the quick launch toolbar, or the start menu. When users start additional instances in this way, logging out of Domino Web Access does impact the other IE windows.
0 (default) – Disables this setting.
1 – Enables this setting.

InstallType

Applies to: Clients

Applies to workstations. Smart Upgrade can determine whether to install a Notes client only, or all clients — Notes, Designer, and Administrator — for each user. The installer sets the value of the InstallType = setting in the NOTES.INI file each time a Notes client or All client install/upgrade is performed. Smart Upgrade compares the Install Type value in the Smart Upgrade kit document to the InstallType field in the NOTES.INI file and installs the update kit that matches the Install Type specified in the NOTES.INI file:
2 – All client install (including Designer and Administrator)
6 – Notes client only

There is no default setting.

JavaEnableJIT

Applies to: Servers

Enabled by default. To disable the JIT, specify the JavaEnableJIT variable and set its value to 0. Default setting is 1.

Caution: JITs can be unstable and can lead to unexpected crashes.

JavaEnableJIT = value There is no UI equivalent.
JavaJITName

Applies to: Servers

Enables the specified JIT. You must provide the named JIT or an error is reported by the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), although execution continues without the named JIT. Use the JavaJITName setting to load a JIT other than the default JIT (if one is provided). JITs can be unstable and lead to unexpected crashes. There is no default. JavaJITName = name There is no UI equivalent.
JavaMaxHeapSize

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the maximum — not initial — size the Java heap can reach. The Java Virtual Machine (JVM) starts out at 16MB of heap space and most of it is uncommitted. If the JVM needs more heap than it currently has, it will expand the heap in increments but will not exceed the maximum. Exceptions such as “java.lang.OutOfMemoryError” indicate that a heap has reached its maximum size. You can specify the number of bytes directly or use the suffix “MB” to indicate megabytes, for example, specifying “64MB” is the same as specifying “67108864.” The default setting is 64 MB. JavaMaxHeapSize = number of bytes There is no UI equivalent.
JavaMinHeapSize

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the initial size of the Java heap at Java Virtual Machine (JVM) startup. If the JVM needs more heap than it currently has, it will expand the heap in increments but will not exceed the maximum. You can specify the number of bytes directly or use the suffix “MB” to indicate megabytes, for example, specifying “16MB” is the same as specifying “16777216.” Default is 16 MB. JavaMinHeapSize = number of bytes There is no UI equivalent.
JavaNoAsyncGC

Applies to: Servers

Prevents the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) from running the garbage collection (GC) mechanism in a separate background thread. Specify 1 as the JavaNoAsyncGC value to debug internal JVM problems. Default setting is 0. JavaNoAsyncGC = value There is no UI equivalent.
JavaNoClassGC

Applies to: Servers

Prevents the garbage collection (GC) mechanism of classes, which protects static fields. Specify 1 as the value to enable the JavaNoClassGC setting. Default setting is 0. JavaNoClassGC = value There is no UI equivalent.
JavaStackSize

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the size of each Java thread’s execution stack. You may need to increase the default number of bytes if you need deeply-nested call stacks, but otherwise you should not need to change the default. Default setting is 409600. JavaStackSize = number of bytes There is no UI equivalent.
JavaUserClasses

Applies to: Servers

Allows code-sharing across agents and applets. The value list is a list of directories, JAR files, or ZIP files that are added to the Java Virtual Machine’s internal classpath so that classes can be found via the system loader (rather than via attachment to the agent or applet). Note that this doesn’t replicate and requires access to the file system on the server. Use a semicolon (;) to separate list items for Win32 and OS/2 systems and use a colon (:) to separate list items for UNIX systems; for example, a valid list for Win32 is: <code>c:\classes; d:\appxyz\stuff.jar</code>. There is no default setting. JavaUserClasses = list There is no UI equivalent.
JavaVerbose

Applies to: Servers

Enables the verbose setting of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), which causes the JVM to issue many messages while it runs. Specify 1 as the JavaVerbose value to troubleshoot runtime problems. Default setting is 0. JavaVerbose = value There is no UI equivalent.
JavaVerboseGC

Applies to: Servers

Enables the verbose setting of the garbage collection (GC) mechanism in Java Virtual Machine (JVM), which causes the JVM to issue many messages about memory usage as GC runs. Specify 1 as the JavaVerboseGC value to enable this setting. Default value is 0. JavaVerboseGC = value There is no UI equivalent.

    Notes:JForgo.ID
  • On UNIX, KeyFileName =
    /home/server1/notes/kbowker.id
  • On Windows, KeyFileName =
    C:\Lotus\Notes\DMccarrick.ID

The default setting is the ID for the administrator that you specify when you set up the server. See ServerKeyFileName for information on specifying a server ID file for a machine that runs both the Notes workstation and Domino server programs.

KeyFileName = path There is no UI equivalent.
KitType

Applies to: Servers and clients

Specifies which program you are running:
1 – Workstation
2 – Server

The default value is specified during the Install program. You can install the workstation, the server, or both the workstation and server. The value when you install the server and workstation on the same machine is 2.

Setting Description Syntax Comment
LANnumber

Applies to: Servers and clients

Specifies information about network ports on servers and workstations. For example:

  • LAN0=spx, 1, , 2000
  • LAN1=netbios, 0, 15, 2000, , 12288

The LAN0 port is configured for an SPX network connection. The LAN1 port is configured for a NetBIOS connection and contains additional port setup information. Exclude the _ or i prefix and the .DLL extension from the port driver name. The default is specified during the Install program.

LANnumber = port_driver, unit_ID, not_used, buffer_size On a workstation, File – Preferences – User Preferences – Ports; on a server, the Ports tab in the Server document.
LDAPBatchAdds

Applies to: Servers

Specifies which views in the Domino Directory the LDAP service updates after processing an LDAP write operation:
0 – After a write operation the LDAP service updates all the Domino Directory views it uses
1 – After a write operation the LDAP service updates only the ($LDAPRDNHier) view and waits for the Update task to update the other views it uses

There is no default setting, although without this setting, after processing an LDAP write operation the LDAP service updates all the views it uses.

LDAPBatchAdds = value There is no UI equivalent.
Use LDAPBatchAdds = 1 before doing batch LDAP adds of 100 entries or more so that so that the additions are processed more quickly. When the LDAP adds are complete, immediately remove the setting or change it back to LDAPBatchAdds = 0. Failure to immediately remove or change this setting back to 0 after completing the batch processing will cause subsequent LDAP operations to be unreliable.
LDAPConfigUpdate
Interval

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the interval at which the LDAP service detects and puts into effect changes to these configuration settings:

  • Settings in the domain Configuration Settings document except “Choose fields that anonymous users can query via LDAP” and “Allow LDAP users write access”
  • NOTES.INI settings related to the LDAP service set through the Set Configuration command
  • LDAP activity logging settings on the Activity Logging tab of a Configuration Settings document

You must always restart the LDAP task to put into effect changes to these settings:

  • “Choose fields that anonymous users can query via LDAP”
  • “Allow LDAP users write access”
  • Port and port security settings on the Ports – Internet Ports – Directory tab.

Without this setting the interval is three minutes.

LDAPConfigUpdate
Interval = number of minutes
There is no UI equivalent.
LDAPGroupMembership

Applies to: Servers

The LDAP service always searches Domino groups specified as “Multi-purpose,” “Access Control List only,” “Servers only,” or “Deny List only” groups because it can do so quickly. However because searches of Domino groups specified as “Mail only” groups or of groups that do not have a value for the GroupType attribute can be slow, by default the LDAP service does not always search these types of groups. The LDAP service does not search these types of groups if a search query meets all of the following criteria, indicating a query that is typically used for authentication: A search query uses the equality filter objectclass=value, where value is one of these object classes: groupOfNames, groupOfUniqueNames, dominoGroup, or group. A search query uses an equality filter with one of these attributes: member, uniqueMember, or members. The two filters above are concatenated using the AND operator. For example, by default the LDAP service does not search Domino “Mail only” groups and groups that do not have values for the GroupType attribute if search queries such as these are specified: (&(objectclass=dominoGroup)
(member=cn=jack brown,o=acme))
(|(&(objectclass=groupOfUniqueNames)
(uniqueMember=cn=jack brown,o=acme))
(&(objectclass=groupOfNames)
(member=cn=jack brown,o=acme)))
However, by default the LDAP service does search these groups if search queries such as these are specified: (&(objectclass=dominoGroup)
(member=*br*))
(member=cn=jack brown,o=acme)
(|(&(objectclass=dominoGroup)
(member=cn=jack brown,o=acme))
(cn=*groupname*)) To change the LDAP service default behavior for group searches, specify one of these values for this setting:
1 – Always search all groups that meet specified search criteria. If you choose this setting, full-text indexing the directory is recommended to improve the speed of searches of Domino “Mail only” groups and groups that do not use the GroupType attribute.
2 – Never search Domino “Mail only” groups or groups that do not use the GroupType attribute.

There is no default setting.

LDAPIdleSessionTimeout

Applies to: Servers

Allows the system administrator to set the default idle timeout for LDAP sessions. The timeout occurs when a client hasn’t sent a packet during the time specified by this variable. The default is 30 minutes, if this .INI variable is not set. LDAPIdleSessionTimeout = time in minutes There is no UI equivalent.
LDAPNotesPort

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the name of the Notes network port for TCP/IP that you are linking the LDAP service with. This setting is required for a partitioned server hosting LDAP, and for a single server hosting it if the server more than one Notes port for TCP/IP. There is no default. For information on binding an Internet service to an IP address, see the Domino Adminstrator Help. LDAPNotesPort = port name There is no UI equivalent.
LDAPPre55Outlook

Applies to: Servers and clients

If set to LDAPPre55Outlook = 1, if the LDAP service receives a search query that specifies country (c=xx) as a search base, it converts the search base to root (“”). This setting is designed for use with pre-5.5 Microsoft Outlook Express clients which, when users don’t specify a search, automatically use the country associated with the software version as a search base. Since it’s likely that pre-5.5 users who don’t specify a search base intend a root search rather than one using the client-supplied country search base, use this setting if the clients that use the LDAP service are primarily pre-5.5 Microsoft Outlook Express clients. There is no default. LDAPPre55Outlook = value There is no UI equivalent.
LDAPName_Update
_Suppress_Time

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the maximum length of time that that the results of a query to an LDAP directory, which has been marked for group expansion, will be cached for use in building nameslists. Upon expiration, the cached entries will be considered invalid and the creation of a nameslist will result in queries being sent to the LDAP directory. This addresses the situation, prior to Domino 6, in which the cache did not detect changes that occurred in LDAP directories that had been marked for group expansion, thus serving up stale data which had been cached from those directories indefinitely.
0 – Updates to the LDAP directory are not detected and the group cache is flushed based only on updates to those Domino Directory(ies) that are enabled for group expansion.
integer – This value is interpreted as the lifetime of information from remote LDAP directories in 1/100ths of a second. Thus, if this value is set to 6000 then the information from the LDAP server will only be considered valid for 1 minute. If the LDAP server was marked for group expansion in the DA database this would mean that group cache would be considered stale after one minute.

Settings below 6000 (3000 if the LDAP server task is running) are probably not useful as these servers are subject to a 1 minute (30 seconds if the LDAP server task is running) threshold and should be avoided. The default setting is 60 minutes [60*60*100 (360000)].

LDAPName_Update
_Suppress_Time = value
There is no UI equivalent.
Location

Applies to: Clients

Identifies the user’s current location. There is no default. Location = location_name UI equivalent: File – Mobile – Choose Current Location.

  • not_used – Always set to zero; this parameter is not currently used
  • days – The number of days to retain the documents in the log file
  • size – The size of log text in event documents

For example: Log=LOG.NSF,1,0,7,20000 The log file (LOG.NSF) is deleted in seven days and can contain up to 20,000 bytes. All log information is also sent to the console. Default setting is Log=LOG.NSF,1,0,7,40000

There is no default setting.

Log_Connections = value There is no UI equivalent, although you can specify this setting in the NOTES.INI Settings tab of the Configuration Settings document in the Domino Directory.
Log_Console

Applies to: Servers

Security administrators can use this setting to enforce the logging of server console command output, which can otherwise be prevented if the command is prefixed with an exclamation point (!).
0 – Console command logging turned off
1 – Console command output logged, unless it’s prefixed with an exclamation point
2 – Console command output logged, whether prefixed with the “!” or not

There is no default setting, but in the absence of this setting console command output is logged unless it’s prefixed with an exclamation point.

Log_Console = value There is no UI equivalent.
Log_DirCat

Applies to: Servers

Use this setting to display additional information to the server console when the Dircat task runs. This includes when the task starts and finishes, what directory its aggregating, the domain name of the directory, and how many entries were processed. For more verbose information, including the names of all the entries that are processed, you can set log_dircat=3. However, this setting may slow performance and fill up the server log file, so its use is not recommended Log_DirCat = value There is no UI equivalent.
LogFile_Dir

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the directory for the Console Log file (CONSOLE.LOG, by default). If both this setting and the Debug_Outfile setting exist and Debug_Outfile contains a fully qualified path name, then LogFile_Dir is not used. If neither Debug_Outfile or LogFile_Dir exist, then the default path \DATADIRECTORY\ IBM_TECHNICAL_SUPPORT is used. There is no default setting. LogFile_Dir = directory name There is no UI equivalent.

Applies to: Servers

Allows mail.boxes created by server during startup to be created with transaction logging disabled when set to any non-zero value. The default setting is 0 (transaction logging is enabled for mail.boxes created at server startup). MailBoxDisable
TXNLogging = value
There is no UI equivalent.
MailCharSet

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the character set a POP3 server uses when downloading mail messages to a POP3 client. Value corresponds to a character set listed in the side file, “MailCharSet values.” If you do not use this setting, the POP3 server looks for a WWWDSP_Codepage value, if this setting is added. (WWWDSP_Codepage controls the character set used by the Web Navigator and accepts the same values as MailCharSet.) Default: None, although if this setting is omitted and there is no WWWDSP_Codepage setting, the POP3 server uses the us-ascii character set. MailCharSet = value There is no UI equivalent.
MailCompactDisabled

Applies to: Servers

Enables or disables the routine compacting of the server’s MAIL.BOX. Without this setting in the NOTES.INI file, MAIL.BOX is compacted routinely when the Compact server task runs:
0 – Enables compacting of MAIL.BOX
1 – Disables compacting of MAIL.BOX

There is no default setting.

MailCompactDisabled = value There is no UI equivalent.
MailCompactHour

Applies to: Servers

Use this setting to specify the time at which the router should perform mailbox compaction. Value is based on a 24-hour clock. For example, MailCompactHour=22 will cause compaction to initiate around 10 pm. There is no default setting. In the absence of the setting, the router will perform mailbox compaction at 4 am. MailCompactHour = value There is no UI equivalent.
MailConvertMIME
onTransfer

Applies to: Servers

Enables or disables MIME message conversion on the router. This can help minimize conversion overhead on the server running the SMTP listener task.
0 (default) – Router does not perform conversions for MIME messages
1 – Router performs conversions for MIME messages
MailConvertMIME

0 (default) – Does not encrypt the encrypted message with the sender’s public key
1 – Encrypt the encrypted message with the sender’s public key
Mail_Disable_Implicit
_Sender_Key = value
There is no UI equivalent.
MailDisablePriority

Applies to: Servers

When set to 1, the MailDisablePriority setting causes the Mail Router to ignore the delivery priority of mail messages. This causes all messages to be delivered with normal priority. If this parameter is set to 0, mail routes according to the parameter determined by the sender. There is no default setting. MailDisablePriority = value There is no UI equivalent.
MailLogToEventsOnly

Applies to: Servers and clients

Use this variable to increase performance for logging mail event messages:
0 (default) – Enables logging of mail event messages to the Domino console.
1 -Disables logging of mail event messages to the Domino console.
MailLogToEventsOnly = value There is no UI equivalent.
Mail_Log_To
_MiscEvents

Applies to: Servers and clients

Determines whether all mail event messages are displayed in the Miscellaneous Events view of the log file:
0 – The router determines whether to log messages to the Mail Events view, the Miscellaneous Events view, or to both views. This is also true if this variable is not defined.
1 – The router ensures that all messages are logged to the Miscellaneous Events view. If a message is typically logged only to the Mail Events view, it would now be logged to both the Miscellaneous Events view and the Mail Events view.

To prevent logging to the Domino Console, the NOTES.INI variable MailLogToEventsOnly can be set to a value of 1. There is no NOTES.INI setting to prevent logging to the Miscellaneous Events view. There is no default setting, although if this setting is omitted, mail events are not displayed in the Miscellaneous Events view. For information on the variable MailLogToEventsOnly, see the listing for MailLogToEventsOnly.

Mail_Log_To
_MiscEvents = value
There is no UI equivalent.
MailServer

Applies to: Servers and clients

Specifies the server where the user’s mail file resides. There is no default setting. MailServer = server UI equivalent: The Mail Server field in the Mail tab of the Person document in the Domino Directory.
MailSetup

Applies to: Clients

Used in Seamless Mail Upgrade for controlling the upgrade of the design of a user’s mail file. The value of this variable is set during the upgrade process, when the user is prompted to upgrade by the “Upgrade Mail File Design” dialog box. If the user clicks Upgrade, and the upgrade is successful, the value of this variable is set to the same value as the environment variable Setup in the upgraded Notes Client. For example, if a client is upgraded to Notes version 6.04, the variable is set like this: MailSetup = 600400 If the user clicks Cancel, but does not select “Don’t show this message again,” the value of this variable is set to 1. When the user opens their mail file, the Upgrade Mail File Design dialog will appear again. If the user clicks Cancel, and also selects “Don’t show this message again,” a dialog box appears informing the user to contact their administrator about upgrading the mail file. If the user clicks OK in this dialog box, the value of this variable is set to -1. The Upgrade Mail File Design dialog box does not appear again. There is no default setting. MailSetup = value
Mail_Skip
_NoKey_Dialog

Applies to: Clients

Specifies whether to display the Encryption Failure dialog when Notes cannot locate the public key to sign or encrypt a message:
0 – The “Don’t show signature or encryption failures again and continue sending” dialog appears when Notes cannot find the public key.
1 – The “Don’t show signature or encryption failures again and continue sending” dialog does not appear when Notes cannot find the public key. Notes then sends the message unsigned and/or unencrypted.

There is no default setting.

Mail_Skip
_NoKey_Dialog = value
UI equivalent: The “Don’t show signature or encryption failures again and continue sending” checkbox in the Encryption Failure dialog box.
MailSystem

Applies to: Servers and clients

Specifies the mail system that the user selected during the workstation setup procedure:
0 – Notes mail
1 – cc:Mail or a non-Lotus mail system

There is no default setting.

MailSystem = value UI equivalent: The mail system selection made during workstation setup.
MailTimeout

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the number of days after which the server returns undelivered mail to the sender. Increase this setting when you have a lot of mail returned in one day or when you are sending mail to foreign domains. To specify a period of less than one day, use the NOTES.INI setting MailTimeoutMinutes. There is no default setting, although if this setting is omitted, undelivered mail is returned after one day. MailTimeout = number of days UI equivalent: None, but you can specify this setting in the NOTES.INI Settings tab of the Configuration Settings document in the Domino Directory.
MailTimeoutMinutes

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the number of minutes after which the server returns undelivered mail to the sender. The maximum number of minutes is 1440 (24 hours). To specify a time greater than one day, use the NOTES.INI setting MailTimeout. There is no default setting. MailTimeoutMinutes = number of minutes There is no UI equivalent.
MailUpgradeFolder

Applies to: Clients

Used in Seamless Mail Upgrade for controlling the upgrade of the design of a user’s mail file folders. The value of this variable is set during the upgrade process, when the user is prompted to respond to the “Upgrade Folder Design” dialog box. If the user has upgraded their mail file successfully, the value of this variable is set to 1 when the user logs in to the Notes client for the first time since the upgrade. When the user opens the mail file, the Upgrade Folder Design dialog box appears. If the user clicks Automatic Upgrade, the folder design will be upgraded to the default Notes 6 folder style, and the MailUpgradeFolder variable will be set to the same value as the value of the environment variable Setup in the upgraded Notes Client. If the user clicks Manual Upgrade, the user will be prompted to select the mail folders to upgrade, as well as the design to upgrade the selected folders to. The MailUpgradeFolder variable will not change. If the user clicks Cancel, the folder design will not be upgraded and the MailUpgradeFolder variable will not change. There is no default setting. MailUpgradeFolder = value There is no UI equivalent.
Map_Retry_Delay

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the number of minutes that a server waits after an unsuccessful attempt to call another server before it tries again. There is no default setting. Map_Retry_Delay = number of minutes There is no UI equivalent.
Max_Config_Files

Applies to: Servers

During server initialization, system information from several documents and files is saved. In order to avoid consuming excessive disk space, the number of files collected can be limited. By default, a maximum of ten file of each type, ncluding NSD, is collected. If Max_Config_Files is reduced, then the appropriate number of files is deleted. This variable is checked only when the server starts or if there is a configuration change. If the variable Max_NSDInfo_Files exists, its value is used instead of Max_Config_Files. Default setting is 10 files. Max_Config_Files = number of files There is no UI equivalent.
Max_NSDInfo_Files

Applies to: Servers

During server initialization, system information from several documents and files is saved. In order to avoid consuming excessive disk space, the number of files collected can be limited. By default, a maximum of ten file of each type, including NSD, is collected. The maximum number of NSD files can be overridden with this variable. Default setting is 10 files. Max_NSDInfo_Files = number of files There is no UI equivalent.
MinNewMailPoll

Applies to: Servers

Determines how often workstations can contact the server to see if new mail has arrived for the user. This setting overrides the user’s selection in the Mail Setup dialog box. You can increase the mail polling interval if there are a large number of mail users on your server, and you want to prevent frequent polling from affecting server performance. There is no default setting. MinNewMailPoll = number of minutes There is no UI equivalent.
Move_Mail_File
_Expiration_Days

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the number of days that the Notes client updates mail file related Change Requests. After this time period, these become obsolete Change Requests. For example: Move_Mail_File_Expiration_Days=30. There is no default setting. Move_Mail_File
_Expiration_Days = number of days
There is no UI equivalent.
MSAACompatibility

Applies to: Clients

Due to some changes in the accessibility interface between Notes 6 and R5, some screen readers will announce no values when reading a document, but will duplicate field names. Notes 6 can be made to emulate the R5 behavior by setting this .ini file variable to V5. Screen reader vendors are aware of this issue and should be contacted about the current status of their products. There is no default setting. MSAACompatibility = V5 There is no UI equivalent.
MSAAFieldNameHelp

Applies to: Clients

By default, when the Notes client provides information to an accessibility aid it will re-use the field’s name as the field description if the description is blank. Likewise, it will use the field description as the field name if there is no field name. This behavior can be disabled by setting this .ini file variable to -1. For usability purposes, it may be important for field name and field description to be distinct. In this case the application developer will need to provide HTML ‘Titles’ (field name) and field help (for field descriptions) explicitly. There is no default setting. MSAAFieldNameHelp = -1 There is no UI equivalent.
MTCDailyTasksHour

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the time, in 24-hour format, when the Mail Tracking Collector (MTC) task performs the daily compaction of the Domino MailTracker Store database (MTSTORE.NSF). Any value between 0 and 23 is an effective value. In the absence of this setting, the Domino server sets the value to 2, and compaction occurs nightly at 2 AM. It is not necessary to specify the value for minutes. For example: MTCDailyTasksHour=18:00 MTCDailyTasksHour = time There is no UI equivalent.
MTMaxResponses

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the maximum number of message tracking responses returned from a query. The number of responses returned will be less than or equal to the MTMaxResponses value. Whenever a query returns more than the MTMaxResponses limit, a message indicating this appears on the Admininstration panel status line. There is no default, although if this setting is omitted, the maximum number of message tracking responses returned from a query is 100. MTMaxResponses = number of responses There is no UI equivalent.
Notes.ini settings: N
Setting Description Syntax Comment
Names

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the names of the secondary Domino Directories that Domino searches to verify recipient names in mail messages. By default, Domino searches only the primary Domino Directory, which is typically named NAMES.NSF. It is strongly recommended that you use directory assistance rather than this setting to do lookups in secondary Domino Directories. This NOTES.INI setting allows additional directories to be searched in the order in which they appear and stops searching when it finds a match in one of the databases. The file names can be up to 256 characters. Separate the list of directories with commas. Do not specify the NSF file extension.The server does not use this feature to look up additional Connection, Domain, or Server documents specified in additional directories. Ensure you create all of the necessary Connection, Domain, and Server documents in the primary Domino Directory.

  • To specify secondary Domino Directories that are replicated locally on the server, type the names of the directories without the NSF extension following the name of the primary Domino Directory; for example: NAMES=NAMES, EASTNAME, WESTNAME
  • If secondary Domino Directories are not replicated locally, access them over the network by specifying server names in canonical format and their Domino Directories as follows: CN=servername/OU=organizational unit/O=organization/!!filename. Specify as many organizational units as necessary. For example, specify: NAMES=NAMES,
    CN=serverwest/OU=west/O=acme!!NAMES,
    CN=servereast/OU=east/O=acme!!NAMES
  • If the name of the remote server is flat, omit the canonical format, for example: NAMES=NAMES, serverwest!!NAMES
  • If a remote server contains multiple Domino Directories, for example a hub server, you can point to each directory on the server. To do this, you must repeat the server name for each directory, for example: NAMES=NAMES,
    CN=serverhub/O=acme!!NAMES1,
    CN=serverhub/O=acme!!NAMES2

Do not add the name of a condensed Directory Catalog as a value for this setting. Use the Basics tab of the Server document in the Domino Directory to set up a server to use a condensed Directory Catalog.

Names = name(s) There is no UI equivalent.
NB_Collect_Response
_Times

Applies to: Servers

Add this NOTES.INI setting to the NOTES.INI file on the test driver to enable output of per-command response time. The resulting file is added to the Results Directory and is assigned a file name RespTime_OutFile#, where # represents the driver number. Use NB_Collect_Response_Times with the ResultsDirectory NOTES.INI setting. For example, the NOTES.INI would contain these settings: NB_Collect_Response_Times=1
RESULTSDIRECTORY=Z:\
The setting is for general use with all workloads and custom scripts. To disable response data collecting, enter the NOTES.INI setting with a value of zero. There is no default setting.
NB_Collect_Response
_Times = 1
There is no UI equivalent.
NB_SSL_Option

Applies to: Servers

Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is enabled for the R6IMAP workload. Add this NOTES.INI setting to the client driver’s NOTES.INI file to enable SSL. To disable SSL in the R6IMAP workload, remove the NOTES.INI setting. There is no default setting. NB_SSL_Option = Use_SSL There is no UI equivalent.
NetWareSocket

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the IPX socket number used by the Domino server. There is no default setting – Domino lets the IPX/SPX protocol stack assign a socket number dynamically. NetWareSocket = socket number There is no UI equivalent.
NetWareSpxSettings

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the decimal value of the Domino server’s IPX socket. There is no default setting. NetWareSpxSettings = value There is no UI equivalent.

Defines how often (in minutes) Notes checks the user’s Inbox for new mail. Default setting is 1 minute. NewMailInterval = number of minutes UI equivalent: File – Preferences – User Preferences – Mail – Check for new mail every x minutes.
NewUserServer

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the registration server for a Domino domain, if this has not been specified in Administration Preferences. There is no default setting. NewUserServer = server There is no UI equivalent.
NLCACHE_VERSION

Applies to: Servers

Introduced in Domino 7.0.3.This Notes.ini variable is a fix to an enhancement to the NAMELookup cache that invalidates individual entries rather than entire groups. This enhancement is not enabled by default, and will only be enabled if the NAMELookup cache version has been increased to 4 by setting the value of this variable to 4. The default setting for the NAMELookup cache in Domino 7x is version 2. NLCACHE_VERSION = 4 There is no UI equivalent.
NoDesignMenu

Applies to: Clients

Hides the Design menu on workstations. There is no default setting, although if this setting is omitted, the Design menu appears.
0 – Shows the Design menu
1 – Hides the Design menu
NoDesignMenu = value There is no UI equivalent.
NoExternalApps

Applies to: Clients

Protects against “mail bomb” viruses by disabling the following workstation features:

  • OLE, DDE, DIP, @Command
  • @DBLookup, @DB Column (when using non­Notes drivers)
  • @MailSend, @DDExxx
  • Launching file attachments
  • Subscribe on a Macintosh workstation

Use the following values to set this variable:
0 – Enables the workstation features listed above
1 – Disables the workstation features listed above
There is no default setting, although if this setting is omitted, these workstation features are enabled.

NoExternalApps = value There is no UI equivalent.
No_Force_Activity
_Logging

Applies to: Servers

Controls whether the Statlog task automatically enables activity logging on all databases:
0 – Allows automatic activity logging on all databases
1 – Prevents automatic activity logging on all databases

Even when activity is not being recorded for the database, the information is still recorded in the Activity entry of the Database Usage view in the server’s log file. There is no default setting, although if this setting is omitted, the Statlog server task enables the Record Activity option for every database on the server and adds 64K to each database.

No_Force_Activity_Logging = value UI equivalent: None, although you can specify this setting in the NOTES.INI Settings tab of the Configuration Settings document in the Domino Directory.
NoMailMenu

Applies to: Clients

Hides the Mail menu. When set to 1, the Mail menu doesn’t appear on workstations. This setting also sets the user’s mail system to None. There is no default setting, although if this setting is omitted, the Notes Mail menu appears. NoMailMenu = value There is no UI equivalent.
NoMsgCache

Applies to: Servers

Disables per-user message caching by the IMAP task. This can improve capacity (number of users) on a server by reducing memory consumption. There is no default setting, although if this setting is omitted, IMAP per-user message caching will be enabled. NoMsgCache = value There is no UI equivalent.
NotesStreamPlatform
Default

Applies to: Servers and clients

The backend class NotesStream open method accepts a charset parameter of “UTF-16”, for use with files containing serialized, 2-byte (16-bit) Unicode characters. If the file contains no leading byte-order-mark (“BOM”) identifying the high/low ordering of each pair of bytes, the default NotesStream behavior for a “UTF-16” charset is to treat the file as having big-endian byte ordering. This will be wrong some percentage of the time. In situations where that percentage is high, an alternate default may be enabled with this Notes.ini setting. There is no default setting. Setting this variable to 1 will cause NotesStream to treat “UTF-16” charset files as big-endian on big-endian platforms, and little-endian on little-endian platforms. As before, the “UTF-16BE” and “UTF-16LE” charset values may be used (instead of the ambiguous “UTF-16”) to influence which endian assumption is applied on a file-by-file basis. NotesStreamPlatform
Default = 1
There is no UI equivalent.
NSF_Buffer
_Pool_Size

Applies to: Servers and clients

Specifies the maximum size (in bytes) of the NSF buffer pool, a section of memory dedicated to buffering I/O transfers between Domino and disk storage. The maximum size depends on any limitations of the operating system, and the amount of system memory available. The minimum size is 4MB. You can also use NSF_Buffer_Pool_Size_MB to set the maximum size of the NSF buffer pool. This is the same as NSF_Buffer_Pool_Size, except it specifies the size in megabytes instead of bytes. Use NSF_Buffer_Pool_Size_MB to avoid the 2GB limitation that exists for NSF_Buffer_Pool_Size due to NOTES.INI variable limits. (NOTES.INI variables are signed variables, and cannot be larger than 2GB.) The default setting is determined automatically by the server or workstation. (This is strongly recommended, except on partitioned servers.) The more memory is available, the larger the server sets the default NSF_Buffer_Pool_Size. On workstations, the maximum setting of the NSF_Buffer_Pool_Size is 8MB (4MB for MAC). On the server, the default maximum is determined to be between 1/8 and 3/8 of available physical memory, depending on the overall size of physical memory. The defaults are not automatically adjusted on partitioned servers, so it will usually be necessary to adjust the maximum values in each partition to a fraction of memory such that the memory used by all partitions adds up to approximately 1/4 to 3/8 of memory. NSF_Buffer
_Pool_Size = number of bytes
There is no UI equivalent.

1 – Disables the database cache
NSF_DbCache
_Disable = value
There is no UI equivalent.
NSF_DbCache
_Maxentries

Applies to: Servers

Determines the number of databases that a server can hold in its database cache at one time, where n is the number of databases. Increasing the database cache size can improve system performance but requires additional memory. The minimum number of databases allowed in the cache at one time is 25; the maximum is approximately 2000, depending on the server platform. There is no default setting, although if this setting is omitted, the number of databases that the server can hold in its cache at one time is either 25, or the NSF_Buffer_Pool_Size value divided by 300K (whichever is greater). NSF_DbCache
_Maxentries = number of databases
There is no UI equivalent.
NSF_Quota_Method

Applies to: Servers

This variable reflects the mail file database quota enforcement method enabled in the Server document, where n indicates the specific method. If quota enforcement methods are enabled, whenever the Router delivers mail, it compares the current size of the destination mail file against its configured database quota or threshold. If the size exceeds one of these, the Router takes appropriate action. There is no default setting.
1 – check space used in file when adding a note
2 – check file size when extending the file
3 – check file size when adding a note
NSF_Quota_Method = value UI equivalent: None, although you can specify this setting in the Quota enforcement field on the Transactional Logging tab of the Server document.
Num_Compact
_Rename_Retries

Applies to: Servers

Domino attempts only once to rename a database that was copy-style compacted. You can request additional attempts by specifying a value in the Num_Compact_Rename_Retries setting in the NOTES.INI file. Domino tries to rename until it succeeds or the number of retries is exhausted. For example, to request that Domino try once again to rename, specify Num_Compact_Rename_Retries = 1; to request that Domino try 5 more times to rename, specify Num_Compact_Rename_Retries = 5. There is no default entry but in the absence of the setting, Domino attempts just once to rename a database that was copy-style compacted. Num_Compact
_Rename_Retries = number of times to retry
There is no UI equivalent.
NWNDSPassword

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the password for Domino to log in to the Novell Directory Service (NDS) tree on system start-up.

PercentAvail
SysResources

Applies to: Servers and clients

Determines approximately how much physical memory is available in the server. This parameter was implemented to try to prevent too much virtual memory from being allocated, which can degrade performance by going to/from the disk. Domino makes an operating system (OS) API call to see how much physical memory is being used. Then, depending on the ratio of how much physical memory is being used by the system at that point in time, Domino makes certain decisions as to how much memory can or should be used by various processes. When the API call is made determines how much physical memory Domino will allow to be allocated. Because of this, it will not be 100% accurate at any given time, but it should improve performance if implemented correctly. It is not recommended to set PercentAvailSysResources to an extremely high number, such as 90, as the operating system and any other applications running on the machine will take a portion of the total physical memory. This variable is not supported on z/OS. You must set the NSF buffer pool size explicitly. Default setting is 0. PercentAvail
SysResources = value
There is no UI equivalent.
PhoneLog

Applies to: Servers and clients

_Cache_NumPerUser
= number of message statistics
There is no UI equivalent.
POP3NotesPort

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the name of the Notes network port for TCP/IP that you are linking the POP3 service with.

Ports are enabled/disabled by a two-step process s using the Setup Ports dialog box and then using Server documents (for servers) or the User Preferences dialog box (for workstations). The order in which ports are listed in this setting can affect how Notes workstations and Domino servers connect to a system. There is no default setting. Ports = port name(s) UI equivalent: On a workstation, see the Ports tab in the User Preferences dialog box (choose File – Preferences – User Preferences). On a server, the Configuration tab’s Tools pane, Server – Setup Ports option, and then see the Ports – Notes Network Ports tab in the Server document.
PrinterPixelPreview

Applies to: Clients

When set, this variable causes Notes print preview to be completely accurate in where page breaks occur in the preview. There is a loss of speed in previewing when using the variable, but it is small. Users wanting absolute preview accuracy should enable this variable. There is no default setting. PrinterPixelPreview = 1 There is no UI equivalent.
Process_Monitor
_Disabled

Applies to: Servers

Disables the Process Monitor server task, which ensures that all of the processes that Domino expects to be present are, in fact, running. This server task runs automatically; the administrator must disable it either using this .ini variable or by setting STX9. There is no default setting. Setting this variable to 1 disables the Process Monitor task. Process_Monitor
_Disabled = value
There is no UI equivalent.
ProgramMode

There is no UI equivalent.
Schema_Daemon
_Breaktime

Applies to: Servers

Specifies how often (in seconds) the schema daemon spawned by the LDAP service checks if it should shut down because its parent LDAP task is shutting down. In most situations there is no need to change the breaktime interval. In rare situations, you might increase this value as a way to free up CPU resources on a heavily used server. Increasing the breaktime value also increases the time it takes the LDAP service to shut down. There is no default setting, although without this setting, the schema daemon checks the status of its parent LDAP task every 15 seconds. Schema_Daemon
_Breaktime = number of seconds
There is no UI equivalent.
Schema_Daemon
_Idletime

Applies to: Servers

Specifies how long (in minutes) the schema daemon spawned by the LDAP service remains idle after it has completed its tasks.

There is no UI equivalent.
Schema_Daemon
_Reloadtime

Applies to: Servers

Specifies how often (in hours) the schema daemon spawned by the LDAP service adds schema elements for new or changed Domino Directory forms and fields to its in-memory schema. This operation occurs only on the administration server for the Domino Directory and not on other servers in the domain that run the LDAP service. Reloading in-memory schema to reflect new or changed Domino Directory forms and fields is a CPU-intensive operation. You might set different intervals for Schema_Daemon_Reloadtime and Schema_Daemon_Resynctime so the two operations occur at different times. Or you might increase the interval during periods when there are no schema changes. Schema_Daemon_Idletime, rather than Schema_Daemon_Reloadtime, controls how often the schema daemon loads new schema elements defined in the Domino LDAP Schema database into memory. There is no default setting, although without this setting the schema daemon reload interval is 24 hours. Schema_Daemon
_Reloadtime = number of hours
There is no UI equivalent.
Schema_Daemon

Specifies how often (in hours) the schema daemon spawned by the LDAP service updates the schema published in the Domino LDAP Schema database with a newer in-memory schema. This operation occurs only on the Domino Directory administration server, and not other servers in the domain that run the LDAP service. Synchronizing the Schema database with in-memory schema is a CPU-intensive operation. You might set different intervals for Schema_Daemon_Reloadtime and Schema_Daemon_Resynctime so the two operations occur at different times. Or you might increase the interval during periods when there are no schema changes. There is no default setting, although without this setting the schema daemon resync interval is 24 hours. Schema_Daemon
_Resynctime = number of hours
There is no UI equivalent.

Server_Availability
_Threshold

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the acceptable level of system resources available to a server. By setting this value for each server in a cluster, you determine how the workload is distributed among cluster members. Valid values are 0 to 100. Domino compares this value against a server’s availability index; when the availability index falls below the Server_Availability_Threshold value, the server becomes BUSY. A Server_Availability_Threshold value of zero (0) indicates a fully available state and workload balancing is disabled; a value of 100 indicates the server is BUSY (since the availability index can never be greater than 100) and the Cluster Manager then tries to redirect user requests to more available cluster members. Default value is 0. Server_Availability
_Threshold = value
There is no UI equivalent, although you can specify this setting in the NOTES.INI Settings tab of the Configuration Settings document in the Domino Directory.
Server_cluster
_auxiliary_ports

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the port through which the server can be reached, in the event of failure of the port specified by Server_Cluster_Default_Port.

Server_Console
_Password

Applies to: Servers

For the encrypted_password to be written to this setting in the NOTES.INI file, you must use the Set Configuration server command to specify the password. The password can be a combination of letters and numbers. When this setting is added to the NOTES.INI file, Domino activates the Set Secure command to secure the server console. The password provided should be different from the administrator’s user password. If you forget the console password, delete this setting from the NOTES.INI file, and then re-specify a password. There is no default value. Server_Console
_Password = encrypted password
There is no UI equivalent.

Server_Session
_Timeout

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the number of minutes of inactivity after which the server automatically terminates network and mobile connections. The minimum recommended setting is 30-45 minutes. A lower setting may negatively impact server performance. The ideal setting depends on factors such as server load and the number of concurrent users on the server. For mobile connections, XPC has its own internal time-out. If the XPC time-out value is shorter than the Server_Session_Timeout value, the XPC time-out takes precedence. There is no default entry, but in the absence of the setting, Domino terminates a session connection after 240 minutes of inactivity (four hours). Server_Session

SERVER_TRANSINFO_RANGE is used to adjust the Availability Index (AI) calculation to match the speed of your server. To adjust the Availability Index calculation for your server using this variable, monitor your system during a period of heavy usage and note the values of Expansion Factor. Use the console command show stat server.expansionfactor Select a value for SERVER_TRANSINFO_RANGE such that 2 raised to the power SERVER_TRANSINFO_RANGE is a reasonable upper bound for expansion factor values. For example, if SERVER_TRANSINFO_RANGE=6, then we expect that the expansion factor values will not rise about 64. Monitor your system during periods of heavy usage to note what value of AI you want to set for your threshold. Select a value which matches the drop in response time at which you want failover to occur. You can also use the console command show ai to display the server’s expansion factor and AI histories and suggest an appropriate value for this variable. Server_TransInfo
_Range = value

If either variable is missing from NOTES.INI, the setup program prompts the user for setup information. There is no default setting. SetupServerAddress = address There is no UI equivalent.
SetupServerName

Applies to: Clients

Identifies the name of the setup server. SetupServerName, together with SetupServerAddress, instructs the Notes setup program to obtain setup information from the specified server. If either variable is missing from NOTES.INI, the setup program prompts the user for setup information. There is no default setting. SetupServerName = name There is no UI equivalent.
Shutdown_Monitor
_Disabled

Applies to: Servers

When the “quit” or “restart server” command is issued to the server, and the server doesn’t terminate in the alloted time, then the server will forcefully terminate and an NSD log will be generated before termination. The time limit is specified in the “Automatic Server Restart” section of the server document in the Basics tab; the default is 5 minutes. This time limit is the time that no shutdown activity occurs; when a process successfully terminates then the timer restarts.

SMTPMTA_Space
_Repl_Char

Applies to: Clients

Specifies the character the SMTP MTA uses to replace spaces in names. Choices are underline (_) or period (.). The following restrictions apply to using periods as replacement characters: User names in the Domino Directory cannot contain periods. For example, John R. Doe is not valid. You cannot use periods as the domain name separator if you configure Domino domains to appear to the left of the @ sign in mail addresses. If you do, a user name with periods replacing spaces can be confused with domain names separated by periods. The default setting is underline. SMTPMTA_Space
_Repl_Char = character
There is no UI equivalent.
SMTPRelayHosts
andDomains

Applies to: Servers

Forces servers to abide by Domino 5 rules to resolve conflicts between Allow and Deny list entries in the SMTP inbound relay controls.
0 (default) – Entries in the Allow field of the SMTP inbound relay controls take precedence over entries in the Deny fields when there is a conflict between them. For example, given the following entries:
Deny messages to be sent to the following external Internet domains xyz.com
Allow messages only from the following Internet hosts to be sent to external Internet domains relay.abc.com
the host relay.abc.com can always relay to any destination, including destinations in the domain xyz.com.
1 – Entries in the Deny fields of the SMTP inbound relay controls take precedence over entries in the Allow fields in the event of a conflict. Using the preceding example, if you deny relays to xyz.com, the host relay.abc.com cannot relay to the denied domain.
SMTPRelayHosts
andDomains = value
There is no UI equivalent.
SMTPSaveImport
Errors

Applies to: Servers

Specifies whether mail message import errors are recorded, as follows:
0 (default) – No messages are recorded.
1 – When an arriving message fails to be written as a note in MAIL.BOX, Domino writes the data stream to a temporary directory, and logs the name of the file.
2 – All arriving messages have their data streams written to the temporary directory.

This feature can use a great deal of disk space because the saved messages continue to accumulate until you delete them. Also, the content of the messages is accessible to anyone with the privileges to read files in the temporary directory.

SMTPSaveImport
Errors = value
There is no UI equivalent.

1 – 821 standard is enforced
SMTPStrict821
LineSyntax = value
There is no UI equivalent.
SMTPTimeout
Multiplier

Applies to: Servers

Multiplies the SMTP time-out wait value by the specified number. Each SMTP protocol exchange has a time-out wait value. If the client does not respond within the time-out period, the connection is broken. You can increase the time-out period by specifying a multiplier value. For example, a value of 2 doubles all time-out periods. Default value is 1. SMTPTimeout
Multiplier = value
There is no UI equivalent.
SMTPVerify
AuthenticatedSender

Applies to: Servers

The SMTPVerifyAuthenticatedSender = NOTES.INI setting designates whether mail that is sent during an authenticated SMTP session must be from the Internet address of the authenticated users. The intent is to verify that the user is not attempting to spoof the “From” field. This feature is most useful when a Domino SMTP server is configured to enforce authentication, but that is not a requirement.
0 (default) – Do not require the sender to use their Internet address.
1- Require the Sender, or From, if Sender header does not exist, to match the Internet address of the authenticated server.
2 – Require the RFC822 From header to match the Internet address of the authenticated user. Sender is not checked, just From is checked.
SMTPVerify
AuthenticatedSender = value
This setting does not affect the Router, nor does it affect messages that are not submitted via SMTP.
The SMTPVerifyAuthenticated
Sender setting does not work when SMTPTranslateAddresses is configured. Mail is rejected if addresses are translated because the match fails.
The features can only be used with single-address entries in the From or Sender field.

    _CBC_SHA

To enter multiple ciphers, enter each cipher specification value, including leading zeros. Do not include spaces between values. For example: SSLCipherSpec = 01020A. There is no default setting.

SSLCipherSpec = value1value2value3… UI equivalent: SSL ciphers field for each Internet protocol in the Ports – Internet Ports of the Server document. The settings in this field are overridden by the SSLCipherSpec NOTES.INI setting. Specifying a 128-bit cipher for a server with an international license has no effect.
SSL_Resumable
_Sessions

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the number of resumable SSL sessions that will be cached on the server. Setting this variable to 1 disables SSL session resumption on the server. The default number of sessions is 50. SSL_Resumable
_Sessions = number of sessions cached
There is no UI equivalent.
SSL_Trace
_KeyFileRead

Applies to: Servers

Enables viewing of information on the current keyring in use on a Domino server. To enable viewing, set SSL_Trace_KeyFileRead to a value of 1.

1 – enables the feature
TCP_EnableIPV6 = value There is no UI equivalent.
TCP/IPportname
_PortMappingNN

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the TCP/IP port number of each partitioned server sharing the IP address of the port mapping server. TCP/IPportname is the name of the TCP/IP port that is specified in the NOTES.INI file by the settings Ports = TCPIP. This entry is only valid in the NOTES.INI file of the port mapper server. NN is any number from 00, 01, 02, and so on to 99; only 00 to 04 are currently supported. Numbers must be assigned in ascending order as an invalid break in the number sequence causes subsequent entries in the NOTES.INI file to be ignored. For example:

  • TCP/IPportname
    _PortMapping00 =
    CN=Server1/O=ACME,
    192.94.222.169:13520
  • TCP/IPportname
    _PortMapping01 =
    CN=Server2/O=ACME,
    192.94.222.169:13521
  • TCP/IPportname
    _PortMapping02 =
    CN=Server3/O=ACME,
    192.94.222.169:13522

The last number is the port number assigned to each partitioned server. This number must be an available number as specified in Assigned Numbers RFC 1340. When setting NOTES.INI variables for port mapping, do not inclde a zone in a port-mapped address. The zone is only valid locally. There is no default setting.

Temp_Index
_Max_Doc

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the maximum number of results (up to 2147483647) that can be retrieved at one time — by an agent running on a server — on a database without any index. For example, specifying Temp_Index_Max_Doc = 10000 allows a single NotesDatabase or NotesDocumentCollection “FTSearch” running on a server to return up to 10000 entries. To use the Temp_Index_Max_Doc setting for an agent running on a server, you must also use the FT_Max_Search_Results setting and specify the same value, for example FT_Max_Search_Results = 10000. Default setting is 5000. Temp_Index
_Max_Doc = number of entries
There is no UI equivalent.
TimeSeparator

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the character used to separate values for time – for example 12:01. Any characters can be used as separators. There is no default setting. TimeSeparator = character There is no UI equivalent.
TimeZone

Applies to: Servers and clients

  • TimeZone=8 (specifies Pacific Standard Time [8])
  • TimeZone=0 (specifies Greenwich Mean Time [0])

The default setting is defined during the workstation or server setup procedure.

TimeZone = value UI equivalent: On a workstation, the Local time zone field in the Location document; on a server, the Local time zone field in the Server document.
Topology
_WorkInterval

Applies to: Servers

Use this setting to specify how often the Maps server add-in task updates the topology map data in the Domino Directory. Once set, it will refresh n hours after the maps add-in program is started, and every n hours after that. You should not use the setting to refresh too frequently, because the map data is stored in your Domino Directory and updates are replicated throughout the domain. There is no default setting, however the Topology maps task normally refreshes topology information once a day, every night at 2 am. Topology
_WorkInterval = number of hours
There is no UI equivalent.
TransLog_MaxSize

Applies to: Servers

TransLog_MaxSize = number of megabytes UI equivalent: “Maximum log space” field in the Transactional Logging tab of the Server document.
TransLog_Path

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the path to the transaction log. The default location is \logdir in the server’s data directory – for example c:\data\logdir. However, it is strongly recommended to store the transaction log on a separate mirrored device, such as a RAID level 0 or 1 device with a dedicated controller. If you change this field and have an existing transaction log, you must use the operating system to move all the log files to the new log path. TransLog_Path = path UI equivalent: “Log path” field in the Transactional Logging tab of the Server document.
TransLog
_Performance

Applies to: Servers

Specifies the trade-off between transactional log runtime and restart recovery time, as follows:
1 – Favor runtime. The system stores more database changes in memory writes fewer changes to the transaction log. Fewer writes to disk improves server runtime.
2 – Standard (default)
3 – Favor restart recovery time. The system stores fewer database changes in memory and writes more changes to the transaction log. More writes to the transaction log improves restart recovery time.
TransLog
_Performance = value
UI equivalent: “Runtime/Restart performance” field in the Transactional Logging tab of the Server document.
TransLog_Status

Update_Suppression_Limit

Applies to: Servers

The Update Task (indexer) maintains two work queues – an immediate queue and a deferred queue. Deferred update requests are held for 15 minutes before they are processed so that requests to update the same database in that time are ignored as duplicate requests. Updater queues can grow if the server has a high update rate because of heavy database use. Use this variable to limit the size (number of requests) in the Update task’s deferred requests queue. Default setting is 32767. Update_Suppression_Limit = value There is no UI equivalent, although you can specify this setting in the NOTES.INI Settings tab of the Configuration Settings document in the Domino Directory.
Update_Suppression_Time

Applies to: Servers

The Update Task (indexer) maintains two work queues – an immediate queue and a deferred queue. Deferred update requests are held for 15 minutes before they are processed so that requests to update the same database in that time are ignored as duplicate requests. Updater queues can grow if the server has a high update rate because of heavy database use. Use this variable to specify the length of time that deferred update requests are held in queue.
