The following is tip #15 from "Managing Lotus Domino servers -- 15 tips in 15 minutes," excerpted from Chapter 14 of the book Lotus Notes and Domino 6 System Administrator Exam Cram 2, published by Sams Publishing.
What role is required for an administrator to be able to recertify a server ID?

B. Transactional logging is available for all versions of Domino running version 4.6.3 or later.
C. Transaction logging requires database ODS version 5 or later.
D. Any user can run transaction logging on their personal mailbox to conserve disk space.
Answer C is correct. Transaction logging is available for Domino servers running release 5 or later and databases using release version 5 or later ODS.
What steps can be taken in the Notes.INI file to prohibit Full access administrators from accessing the server?
A. Add the line SECURE_ADMINSTRATOR_LOGIN=1.
B. Encrypt the NOTES.INI file with private key encryption.
C. Delete the Catalog task from the Server@Run list.
D. Add the line SECURE_DISABLE_FULLADMIN=1.
Answer D is correct. Adding the line SECURE_DISABLE_FULLADMIN=1 in the Notes.ini file tells the server to ignore the Full Administrators field in the Domino Directory and explicit access for full administrators will need to be defined in database and applications.
What versions of transaction logging allows for databases greater than 4GB in size?
Answer C is correct. Linear transaction logging is similar to circular logging, but can use more than 4GB of disk space.
What is the default name of the database used for activity logging?
Answer A is correct. The default database name used for activity logging is ACTIVITY.NSF.
Regarding password quality, which of the following statements are true? Choose all that apply.
A. Password quality is selected by choosing radio buttons with preset levels defined.
B. The strongest password selection has a value of 15.
C. Values are set using a slide bar.
D. A value of 0 signifies no password is defined.
Answers C and D are correct. Password quality is set using a slide bar to determine the quality of password security to assign to the ID file. The default location of the slider is to the extreme left, which is no password and a value of 0. Sliding the bar to the extreme right forces a very strong password and a value of 16.
What is the purpose of a Program document?
A. Automation of server tasks
B. Mail routing
