R5 Client On Server

Lotus tells us that the R5 server install does not include a client.

That is not entirely true.

NLNOTES.EXE is present after installing a server. Find it, make a shortcut and
you now have easy access to a Notes Client.

But YOU want an Admin client? No problem, it is present also. Make a copy of
the shortcut used for the Notes Client. On the properties for the new copy,
change the 'Target'. Leave the path and filename as is (something like
"c:\lotus\domino\nlnotes.exe"). Add 'AdminOnly' to the END of the Target. End
result is something like
"c:\lotus\domino\nlnotes.exe adminonly". The space before AdminOnly is

This is actually an old tip - it worked the same way in R4!
