I'm currently having a problem with the Spell_dir = in notes.ini. I have one terminal server with a program installed in d:lotusnotes and a data folder located on networkdrive u:lotusnotesdata. I have made the shortcut to the program so it uses the u:lotusnotesdata lib. My problem is, the spell_dir in notes.ini is referring to d:lotusnotes instead of u:lotusnotesdata.
I have helped some users manually correct the notes.ini file. But, I have approximately 500 users, and I can see a big issue here. Also, with some users, the Spell_dir in notes.ini is changed back to d:lotusnotes after I start the Notes program.
I am using Domino 6.5.1 on the server and client; the terminal server is Microsoft Terminal Server.
Is there any way to change the default spell_dir (which is d:lotusnotes) to u:<lotusnotesdata for all of my users in one touch?
Thanks in advance.
I am not sure how to do this in one touch. But there is another issue.
If I read your mail correctly, you are using a non-local data directory -- probably for the purpose of allowing users to log onto different computers (so the users can "roam"). What you have designed here is, as far as I know, not a supported configuration for Notes. I know that some companies have done this, but a non-local data directory is not officially supported (at least last time I had this conversation with Lotus).
