Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 


Short Description: Enable/Disable Last-Modified headers.


If the Domino Web server is using ETag headers, set this variable to 1 so the  server  will not generate Last-Modified headers.
The variable only has an effect if the Web server generates ETags.

This setting will be ignored if any of the following are true:

  • DominoDisableETags is set to 0
  • the HTTP 1.0 protocol is being used
  • the user has specified a Last-Modified header with @SetHTTPHeader function



SPR# TTRT5TVVRW - If the server configuration variable "DominoDisableLastModifiedWithETags" is set to 1, the web server will not generate a Last-Modified header if an ETag headers is also generated. This is to prevent Internet Explorer from displaying a cached page instead of the response page. SPR# JUYA5RQ589 - Fixed a page refreshing problem with session authentication. This fix requires the Notes.ini setting "DominoDisableLastModifiedWithEtags=1", to make sure that Internet Explorer does not get the last modified header. This regression was introduced in 6.0.1.

Default value:

DominoDisableLastModifiedWithETags=0 / 1


UI equivalent:
