Settings and Description:

Special thanks to Al Brown at Crete Carrier Corporation for supplying this notes.ini setting


This Notes.ini setting will cause the server to log the database that is
being indexed.

This can be very useful if you have a database view that is corrupted to
the point that when update/updall starts to index if it crashes the server.
(It can happen)

It can be very hard to pinpoint the ailing database using this setting can
tell you down to the view (if you want) that is being worked on at the
time of the crash.

I got this from Lotus Tech Support due to problems we were having on
our AS400 Domino Server. Now, I just leave it set on 1.

to show the database including the view/folder being indexed


to show the database (only) that is being indexed

To turnoff update logging completely
