This Help document is divided into the following sections:

SECTION 1 – General Information
SECTION 2 – Performing a Cumulative Client Hotfix install
SECTION 3 – Removing a Hotfix Installation
SECTION 4 – Applying a Hotfix to a client that Already has a Hotfix Applied
SECTION 5 – Using the Cumulative Client Hotfix Installer with Domino’s Smart Upgrade Feature
SECTION 6 – Important Note



SECTION 1 – General information
A Cumulative Client Hotfix (CCH) is a bundle of hotfixes for the Lotus Notes client. CCHs are intended to address the more critical problems that have been identified in a shipping maintenance release. Defects addressed in the CCH have gone through a limited test cycle.

The Cumulative Client Hotfix Installer is packaged as a single executable. This executable's name is comprised of the base version of the Notes client for which the hotfix was created, followed by the CCH version, and then followed by the platform for which it is built. In most cases the platform will be W32. For example, the first CCH for an 8.0.2 Notes client will be named: 802CCH1_W32.exe




SECTION 2 – Performing a Cumulative Client Hotfix install
The executable for the Hotfix Installer can be run either through the Windows GUI by double-clicking the executable or via a command line to start the install with GUI input requiring user input.

NOTE: Please note that if you uninstall this FP1 CCH1 hotfix, the Notes client will revert back to 8.5. This is despite if you install FP1 CCH1 on top of 8.5 or 8.5 FP1.


For 8.x hotfixes
Beginning with 8.x, the installer now uses the Microsoft Installer and therefore command line options that are available for use with MSI are now available with the Cumulative Client Hotfix Installer. Starting with 8.0.2 hotfixes the silent parameter (/s) may be used. This will allow administrators to use Smart Upgrade and enable the correct parameters to silently install hotfixes on user's machines.


For all hotfixes:
When the Cumulative Client Hotfix Installer is run for the first time on a base version (for example, an 8.0.2 Notes client with no previous hotfixes applied) it will:
  • Identify the current release of the product
  • Create a backup directory called RCHBackup
  • Update version information of the client. This can be verified through the Help -> About Notes menu item (e.g., the string would change from Release 8.0.2 to Release 8.0.2 CCH3).
  • Move the files that are being "replaced" by the installer to the RCHBackup after they have been compressed into a file called "undo.db"
  • Create a HOTFIX.INI file in the root of the Notes Program directory (typically the "Notes" directory), which documents information about the hotfix that has been applied
  • Place a copy of the installer itself into the RCHBackup directory
  • Create the file LotusInstall.log which is located in the C:\Documents and Settings\%USERNAME%\My Documents directory

ADDITIONAL NOTES:
  • It is imperative that the HOTFIX.INI and RCHBackup directory (and its contents) remain intact and unchanged. Tampering with either may result in undesirable outcomes when it comes time to remove a CCH or apply a new CCH on top of the currently installed CCH.




SECTION 3 – Removing a Hotfix installation
To remove a hotfix and return the client to the base release, the Hotfix Installer should be run a second time. The installer should not be run from the RCHBackup directory for reversion. Instead it should either be copied from its original source to the local machine on which the reversion is desired into a directory other than RCHBackup, or a copy of the installer from the RCHBackup directory should be placed into a different local directory where it can then be run from. This is important so that during the removal process the RCHBackup directory can be cleaned up properly. The same command line options still apply.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please note that if you uninstall this FP1 CCH hotfix, the Notes client will revert back to 8.5. This is despite if you install FP1 CCH1 on top of 8.5, or 8.5 FP1.

In order for this process to run properly, it is imperative that the HOTFIX.INI and RCHBackup directory (and its contents) remain intact and unchanged. If either have been removed or modified removal of the hotfix will fail and/or have other undesirable side effects.

When the Hotfix Installer is run a second time in order to revert the client back to its base version, it will:
  • Identify the current release of the product (e.g., 8.5 FP1 CCH1)
  • Verify the existence of "undo.db" in the RCHBackup directory and HOTFIX.INI in the Notes program directory
  • Revert version information of the client. This can be verified through the Help -> About Notes menu item. (e.g., the base release string will appear once again instead of the hotfix string; that is, the string could change from Release 8.5 FP1 CCH1 to Release 8.5)
  • Decompress the files in the "undo.nb" and verify their checksums against the values stored in the HOTFIX.ini
  • Replace the decompressed files in the Notes Program directory
  • Delete the HOTFIX.ini and RCHBackup directory including its contents
  • Log informational messages and/or errors in the UPGRADE.LOG (this file is not cleaned up, it will contain previous log information)



SECTION 4 – Applying a Hotfix to a client that already has a Hotfix applied
If a subsequent hotfix needs to be applied to a client that already has a hotfix applied, the original fix must be combined with the new fix and a new Hotfix Installer containing all of the fixes (hence the name Cumulative Client Hotfix) will be distributed.* When the new Hotfix Installer is run, the original hotfix will be detected and the Installer will restore the client back to its base version. Similarly to when a hotfix is removed, in order for this process to run properly, it is imperative that the HOTFIX.INI, and RCHBackup directory (and its contents) remain intact and unchanged. It will then apply itself by backing-up and applying files as described earlier. When applying a new CCH on top of an already existing CCH, the same command line options can be utilized if desired.

*It is not guaranteed that a subsequent hotfix will be combined with an already existing hotfix.



SECTION 5 – Using the Cumulative Client Hotfix Installer with Domino’s Smart Upgrade Feature
This Cumulative Client Hotfix Installer can be used with Domino's Smart Upgrade feature. The same procedures should be followed for this Installer as is documented in the Administrator Help database. For all 8.x hotfixes and above, you can use the MSI options.

To remove a CCH using SmartUpgrade the hotfix version should be specified as the "Source Version" in the kit document. The "hotfix version" can be found on the Help->About Notes splash screen. (e.g., Release 8.5 FP1 CCH1) The "Destination Version" can either be specified as the base release (e.g., Release 8.5) or as a wildcard (*). These settings also apply if you are attempting to apply a subsequent Hotfix to clients which already have a Hotfix applied.



SECTION 6 – Important Note
Installation by any method other than with the installer in which a Cumulative Client Hotfix is packaged is not supported.
