Recovery Configuration

When setting up the id/password recovery settings for the first time after
installing a R5 server, you receive an error message.

When I try to add an admin. name to the list of current recovery authorities
via clicking the add button, I get an error - file does not exist. This is
completely stopping me from being able to use password recovery. What the heck
is going on? I've tried 5.02.c and 5.03, and I get the same exact error. I
tried different names and I still get the same error.

The fix is at the local PC. Edit the notes.ini file and check the address book=
setting. You will find a space between the defined address books like
names.nsf, dircat.nsf

Remove the space and restart Notes client & Admin. Problem solved.

If you like this I want in on the members only section and the area where only
certain users can access. I hope you like it....
