Diagnosing the problem

Refer also IBM Technote 1976404.

Resolving the problem

Integration with Connections Files fails when VOP Domino Server notes.ini parameter: iNotes_WA_Security_NonceCheck=0 is configured.

To correct configuration to allow Integration with Connections Files to work correctly, change to iNotes_WA_Security_NonceCheck=1.
The F5 Load balancer required this setting enabled, to permit Files to upload from VOP to Connections Files.
