I am attempting to install Notes 5.0.1a on Windows 2000 Professional machines. I'm trying to set it up so that any user can log on to a machine, and then be able to log on to Notes and get their e-mail, so that their Notes access is not machine-specific. So far I haven't been able to get this. What do I need to do to get this running?
The easiest way to accomplish this is to install the program to the local hard drive and then move all data and notes.ini files up to a home directory. You would modify the launch icon for Notes to point to the new notes.ini, such as H:notes.ini. The notes.ini on the H: drive will be for that person, and all data files will be up there, as well. In essence, it will be a roaming user. That being said, roaming users are a part of Notes/Domino 6, and you may want to look into that. It is cleaner than the approach I gave you for R5.
