I am getting this error in the Notes log:
Replicator was unable to initialize filename.nsf (the filename is the path and database name.nsf)(from Servername/Domain filename.nsf): Special database object cannot be located.
I cannot seem to find anything on Lotus' Web site in regards to this problem. Do you have any idea what could be causing this error? We are running 4.6 on the workstations and server.
There are a few items in the knowledgebase about this issue for R4 servers. This appears to have been fixed in QMR 4.6.7 and 5.0.2. The technotes are 145758 and 178315. The technotes say that replication may be occurring proeprly and just the error message is appearing. To ensure that this is the case, Manually replicate the database in question using an ID that has sufficient authority to complete the replication. If this does not work, delete the replica and create a new one from the source . Be certain to select "Immediately" in the New Replica Dialog box.
You can search for the technotes at http://www.ibm.com/support/
