Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 

IM_Use_Canonical_Name


Short Description: Enable/Disable from Lookup names in the Notes abbreviated hierarchical form.

Description:

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).

In a Notes 8 Standard client, and with the Sametime server configured to use LDAP, awareness does not work in the Inbox, or any other folder or view, though the integrated sidebar works fine and shows users' status. In R7 and R8 Basic, you can select the user preference "Use canonical name for instant messaging status lookup" to get awareness to work with LDAP. This option is not available in Notes 8 Standard and setting it in Basic mode has no effect on the Standard client.

This has been fixed for Notes 8.01. 8.01 Standard client now recognizes the ini setting IM_USE_CANONICAL_NAME=1. This ini variable needs to be set manually. The option in the preference dialog has not been added in 8.0.1.





Default value:
0 - Lookup names in the Notes abbreviated hierarchical form (for example: "John Smith/Sales/Acme")

Syntax:
IM_Use_Canonical_Name=0 / 1

Example:
IM_Use_Canonical_Name=1

UI equivalent:
The "Use a canonical name for instant messaging status lookup" on the Instant Messaging - General pane in the User Preferences dialog box. (Choose File - Preferences - User Preferences.)
