Our company has completed the migration from R4.5.7 to R5, but we postponed converting from flat names to hierarchical names.
We now want to switch to hierarchical names, but we are unable to find any information on what needs to be changed/tested. We have read the Administration Help information and seem to understand what needs to be done from a Notes Administration point of view, but we are totally in the dark from an application point of view.
Can you tell us what needs to be done to our Notes applications to insure they will continue to function properly? We were hoping to find a step-by-step procedure to follow, a list of gotchas and problem areas, or other documentation that would identify what needed to be done to our applications. Does such information exist? If it does exist, where can we get the information?
We have searched Notes.Net, Help files, Developers Guide, Redbooks and many many other Web resources, but we keep coming up with a blank.
Flat naming schemes are so old, I've never encountered anyone using them. I don't have any step by step information for them, other than to tell them to test it throughly. Mike
