Hi All,

I did a collection the other day of a few machines. These machines were using Lotus Notes.

The NSF's are encrypted, but it's fine as i have the and the passwords... So i thought.

It seems that some of the databases are locked down so i cant turn the encryption off. In the database properties, all the options and "change-able" data is greyed out. Almost as though i have access, just not access to modify the properties.

I can see a few ways around this, but would like to see how others have dealt with it. It's becomming a problem because im about to feed it through my processing cluster. I have had to set all my worker boxes to use the original file. Obviously this is painful because i need to re-assign the user-id for each custodians inbox.

So my questions:
1) Any way to remove that encryption? Properties -> Encryption Settings -> Do not locally encrypt is greyed out.

2) Any way to stop the password prompt when lotus notes starts under the user id? (not the best, but atleast i will not have to enter the password multiple times when processing)

3) I'm thinking if i can create a copy of the database to a new NSF, Lotus might drop some of the local permissions and allow me to turn off encryption. If so, how do i make a copy that copies all the templates etc.

Thanks all in advance - i hate lotus notes, it always gives me pain.

I know a little about the issues you are having regarding Lotus Notes databases. Have you tried using "Notespeeker" for Lotus Notes. You should be able to obtain a copy from the IBM/Lotus web site. "Notespeeker" will allow you to look into any database within notes as long as you have the proper authorization level. It's a pretty neat tool if you're not familiar with Lotus Notes.

Check it out, I think you'll be surprised at its versatility and usability.
