In Lotus Domino 8.5.1 and more recent releases, the Domino Directory made several strides in the directory architecture, in order to abstract knowledge of proprietary database operations while managing directory objects. These directory architecture enhancements bring Lotus Notes and Domino closer to hosting users and groups in LDAP directories as well as Domino directories.
The Administration process (adminp) now searches for attributes that might not exist in a view in names.nsf. As a result, for Domino 8.5.1 and more recent releases, administrators need to create a full-text index for all Domino directories hosted on an administration server including the primary Domino Directory, names.nsf. Upgrading the Domino directory template, pubnames.ntf, does not affect the issue. A full-text index must be created for all Administration servers in Domino 8.5.1 or more recent.
After an upgrade to 8.5.1 or more recent release, Domino administrators might notice it takes longer to complete operations such as an Adminp Delete person and Rename Person.
Diagnosing the problem
Note: If the directory is not full-text indexed, this warning is displayed in the server logs:
LDAP Server: You should full text index Domino directory names.nsf on to improve search performance for filters like '(&(objectclass=x)( (member=x)(additionalmembers=x)(excludedmembers=x)))'
Resolving the problem
This issue has been reported to Quality Engineering as SPR# JXBI8AUA6X and is under investigation. Full-text indexing of the Domino Directory (names.nsf) mitigates performance issues.
