Error description

  • If a user has a nonexistent server (with no clustermates)
    specified in the
    client notes.ini variable "IDVaultLastServer," and he never does
    a switch ID,
    he may never connect with the vault server. How that value got
    into the client
    notes.ini may be a configuration issue (for example, Admin had
    configured the
    ID vault on that server and then suddenly removed that server.)
    
    
    To reproduce, I set the value of IDVaultLastServer in notes.ini
    to a
    nonexistent server, and started the client and just observed.
    

Local fix

  • 3 options:
    1. Do a switch-ID to the same ID.
    2. Remove the IDVaultLastServer notes.ini variable from the
    notes.ini file.
    3. Use a desktop policy to set the correct value of the
    IDVaultLastServer
    notes.ini variable.
