Lotus R6 Upgrade Path

IBM Redbook:

Section 4.3

Recommended upgrade path

1. Upgrade the Administration server and Administrator clients.

2. Upgrade the Domino Directory.

3. Upgrade Hub servers.

4. Upgrade Mail servers.

5. Upgrade Application severs.

6. Upgrade Notes clients.

7. Upgrade applications and databases.

8. Upgrade to the new ODS.

9. Steady state (performance tuning and optimizing your environment).

10. Utilization of new features.

I answered “no” to the update directory to R6 question when R6 server first started (should have answered yes.) So I followed the manual instructions (which can be done before upgrading server… but I did it after). With server down, I replaced the design with the new pubnames.ntf. Still down, used this DOS command:

>\data directory\nupdall -R names.nsf (for win32 platform)

Only the manual is wrong… should say \app directory\nupdall…

d:\lotus\domino\nupdall -R names.

12/13/2003 03:03:13 PM Updating views in e:\Lotus\Domino\Data\names.nsf

Section 7.4.1 on mail upgrade:

tell router quit (disable mail routing while files upgrade)

load convert -u mail\bjones StdR50mail mail6.ntf

where the -u switch upgrades folders

iTunes Windows CDDB Fix

[iTunes CDDB Fix!] – iPodlounge Forums Archive

The following was found in the Apple iTunes Dicussion Forum:

I’ve got an email from technical support which says:

I wanted to follow up with you on your trouble with CDDB getting track

names. Can you tell me what is in your registry for


Does deleting this registry key and relaunching iTunes fix the problem?

Removing 2.0 and leaving 1.0 solved the CDDB track lookup problem on my Dell W2K laptop. I suspect there is a conflict between iTunes and Windows Media player or WinAmp (which were also on my Dell) –Jeb

Relay Test (for spam)

Domino R5 installs with a default open relay for SMTP. (A spammer’s dream come true.) R6 installs closed.

Rebuilding Merlin in R5 added a secondary, open mail config doc in addition to the existing closed mail config doc. The spammers found it within a few days.

Sorry about that George!
