Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 


Short Description: Provides a way of setting a Sametime hostname for all Domino Web Access users.


Provides a way of setting a Sametime hostname ( for example) for all Domino Web Access users (useful for clustered configurations). If not specified, the Sametime server is looked up on an individual user basis, by looking within the current user's Directory entry for a "SametimeServer" field. This Domino server name is then looked up within the ($Servers) view to determine the Internet hostname of the Sametime server.

Since R7.0.0 this functionality can be enabled by the Domino Web Access Instant Messaging setting "Set an Instant Messaging server hostname for all DWA users" in the Configuration Settings document of the Domino Directory server.

This information originated in the Notes/Domino 7.0 and 7.0.1 release notes.

The Notes.ini variables listed have been made obsolete in 7.x; either because UI settings exist to enable the functionality or because the functionality is longer required.


DWA 7 (mail files based on the DWA7.ntf design) will not honor these parameters if found in the Notes.ini; it will read only from the configuration document. If a particular obsoleted parameter does not exist the configuration document, the functionality is no longer required and there is no other method of enabling the functionality. DWA 6 (mail files based on iNotes6.ntf) will still honor these parameters, since there is no other method of enabling the functionality. 

Default value:



UI equivalent:
There is no kown UI setting for this notes.ini variable. But you can specify this setting in the notes.ini settings tab of the configuration settings document.
