IBM – Can replication be disabled using a desktop settings policy?


Question

In Lotus Notes®/Lotus Domino®, the “Replicate when Notes starts” and “Replicate when Notes ends” settings are enabled in users’ Location Documents. The administrator wants to disable these settings. However, unchecking the “Replicate when Notes starts” and “Replicate when Notes ends” options in a desktop settings policy doesn’t disable them on the user workstations.

Is it is possible to use a desktop settings policy to enable these settings? If the settings are already enabled, is it possible to disable them using this type of policy?

7 Things IT Managers Should Know About Lotus Notes – CIO.com – Business Technology Leadership


December 09, 2008 — CIO — When the phrase “Lotus Notes” is mentioned in the halls of your IT department, you probably hear a range of responses, from “That’s still around?” to “Notes is a critical part of our application portfolio, and we couldn’t deliver value without it.” For a significant enterprise collaboration application that’s been around for more than two decades, it’s surprising that so many IT professionals still have a difficult time explaining just what Notes and Domino is, what it does and how it fits into the IT infrastructure.

Lotus Notes is the “Ginsu knife” of application development. It slices, it dices, it cuts both leather and tomatoes. This extreme flexibility means that Notes doesn’t fit neatly into a single software category in either its definition and functionality. But it also means that your investment in Notes and Domino can deliver more than “just e-mail” to your organization. Are you taking advantage of what it can do?
