Error description

  • There are two machines used at the steps below. Notes client
    needs to be installed as multi-user installation at each of the
    client machine. The name of Window users needs to be the same
    at each of the client machines. For example, if the Windows
    user name is "test user1" at the first machine, the same name
    "test user1" needs to be used at the second machine.
    
    This is done so under an assumption that Notes client at the
    second machine works exaactly the same as at the first machine
    by coping all of Notes client's data content from the fist
    machine to the second machine.
    
    If you use Window 7 for the first client machine, the second
    machine's OS also needs to be Windows 7 as well. If the first
    machine's OS is Windows XP, the second machine's OS needs to be
    XP as well.
    
    I assume that you have set up a Domino cluster where two Domino
    servers belong to. The first server is ServerA and the second
    server is ServerB. A user that you use for testing is
    registered so that his home server is ServerA and ServerB has a
    replica of the user's mail file.
    
    
    *** Steps ***
    Server_Availability_Threshold=100 is set at ServerB's notes.ini
    so that it prevents users from accessing the server if ServerA
    is available.
    
    1. Run both ServerA and ServerB.
    2. Install Notes client (multi-user install) to the first
    client machine.
    3. Setup the Notes client at the first client machine. Client
    machine connects to ServerA and finishes its setup. Notes
    workspace only lists a replica of the user's mail file at
    ServerA. Cluster.ncf lists both ServerA and ServerB.
    4. Exit Notes client.
    5. Install Notes client (multi-user install) to the second
    client machine.
    6. Copy the content of Notes client's data directory of the
    first client machine to the second machine. (All local path
    location in notes.ini is applicable at the second machine as
    the directory structure is the same.)
    7. Shut down ServerA. ServerB is now the only server that is
    running at this point.
    8. Launch Notes client at the second client machine.
    9. Select the mail database icon and try to open the mail file.
    The customer expects that Notes client fails over to a replica
    at Server B but it does not occur.
    
    
    Notes client can open databases at server B if you explictly
    opens them.
    

Local fix

  • Failover starts working with doing both of the next operation.
    1. Edit location document and set information for the secondary
    server.
    2. Pressing ctrl + O and connect to ServerB.
    
    Once you succeeds in connecting to ServerB (you do not need to
    open a replica at ServerB), failover starts working.
