I recently had an issue where the mail boxes on one of my Domino servers were not compacting at all during their normal window. My logs showed 09/03/2009 04:00:01 AM Router: Beginning mailbox file compaction of mail1.box 09/03/2009 04:00:01 AM Switching to copy-style compaction for E:\Lotus\Domino\Data\mail1.box due to unique fields names table size 09/03/2009 04:00:02 … Continue reading “unique fields names table size” error in Lotus Domino
And you’ve removed ALL connection documents that could be causing this and you’ve also gone and removed all traces of the obsolete servers from the events4.nsf database and from the ddm.nsf collection hierarchy? You must be running DDM my friend. Check out this technote then from IBM / Lotus. I went through and wholesale deleted … Continue reading You find some of your servers are still trying to replicate like crazy with servers you’ve removed from your Domino Domain?
I use this blog to remind myself of items now and then so I can just search here and find them. This was pulled from this articleÂ and I am reproducing it here for my own edification as it will be really useful going forward. You can just ignore this if Lotus Notes / Domino isn’t … Continue reading Copy Lotus Notes databases from the Domino Server console command line
I recently had the need to create local mail file replicas for a bunch of folks. This is something that *had* to be in place for a certain time but we wanted people to be able to create the replicas at a time of their choosing up until the drop dead date. So I have … Continue reading Create a local replica of your mail file using LotusScript

There is always so much available to do that you have to pick and choose what’s most important to you and some stuff you just … Continue reading Lotusphere 2010 – Knowledge from Concentrate!
Teamstudio recently had a contest where they wanted you to showcase your applications so that others can see what folks are doing out there and so you could toot your own horn a bit. My entry was probably a lot less snazzy than the ultimate winners (I haven’t seen them) as I tend to focus … Continue reading My Entry for Teamstudio’s Spotlight Award
From the timestamps I see that this gem has been available since June of 2006 but I certainly had not heard about it. Microsoft (M$), always there with useful products, also always manages to make things *just* different enough from standard that you can’t really seem to call them on it but they make it … Continue reading Winmail.dat file issue in Lotus Notes workaround (finally)
A fairly common problem in Domino / Lotus Notes is to have a mismatch between the private key in some user’s user.id file and the public key in the Directory (Address Book). This can come about through a number of ways: restoring a really old copy of a user ID, recreating a user ID without … Continue reading Cure for Public / Private key mismatch in Lotus Notes
I checked out Chris Miller’s website (which I note is hosted in Lotus Domino – Go Chris!) and stumbled on these great parodies of these Mac vs. PC ads. Definitely worth a grin.
As you may or may not know, we are planning to renovate our master bathroom this year. It has scope-creeped somewhat from the original “Bathroom” concept, but we’ve now capped the project at a size that we think will be doable and worth the pain. Our current project now extends from the master bathroom to … Continue reading Master Bathroom Renovation and Bathtubs
