On one of the previous tips, it was stated that it is enough to end the Namgr
process to succesfully start up Notes client after a crash, but sometimes
stopping Namgr is not enough . . .
The tip cited below is an update to a previous tip:
Notes does nor only consist of the namgr task. To succesfully restart Notes,
you also have to end all of the following tasks (if they exist):
This is not a complete list. If you have a Notes session crash on a server, I
advise that you do not try ending the processes, but launch Notes with a Notes
copy of desktop. Moreover, using this technique, you can launch several Notes
Make a link. Set Executable to nlnotes.exe in the Notes directory. Set "Start
in" directory for instance to c:\Notes1, where c:\notes1 is a valid directory.
Place notes.ini into c:\notes1 and change directory key of notes.ini to
c:\notes1. Copy your ID-file to c:\notes1.
Do one of the following
1. Copy your existing desktop: desktop.dsk, names.nsf, bookmarks.nsf (for R5),
etc. to c:\notes1.
2. Copy bookmarks.ntf and names.ntf to c:\notes1.
Be sure there are no notes.ini in directory of nlnotes.exe.
If you followed the first variant, then Notes will use a copy of the existing
desktop. If you used the second variant, the program will create a new desktop.
Using this technique, you can create Notes2, Notes3, etc. and may run several
Notes clients -- one for every complicated task and one for mail.
