Denny Russell February 8 2011 03:17:44 PMA customer came to me with a very interesting question. They've used our products for years and now are migrating away from Domino to a Hosted Exchange solution.
-- Each User has their own archive database currently stored on an archive server.
-- The archives is stored in a .nsf format.
-- The Archive files will not be migrated and the users will be required to open a Lotus Notes client to view them locally on their pc if they need to go back and read any old archived content.
-- Archives will be stored on users laptop/pc.
What do we do about "Certification" of the Notes ID. Some are bound to expire, and all Domino servers will be retired so there is no option to recertify them. So what can we do to ensure they will still be able to access their archives over time?
The possibilities I've come up with:
1. Recertify with an expiration off in the future.
-- Set it to 50 years and you should be good.
2. I believe you could remove the need for a password so they aren't prompted (but you still would have the cert issue.)
-- This one I don't think is valid.
3. Make the local replica of the archives and make the Default ACL as Manager, that way, they could get into the LN client without an ID and access the database.
-- I'm not sure I like this one as it's not secure and anyone who gets the laptop could read it.
I've thought of a few items but wanted to lean on everyone to see what others have seen done in this situation. Anyone have any ideas or thoughts??
