Error description

  • The $NTTrack field only stores the last 4 alphanumerals of the
    deviceID. It would be beneficial if the field would store the
    full
    deviceID for those who want it. Notes Traveler Server will be
    changed to allow a user to choose whether they would like to see
    the full ID or just the last 4 alphanumerals.
    

Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • nttrack field purposely uses last 4 digits of device ID as the
    field has a length limit.  This APAR allows a customer to choose
    to store the full device ID.  The behavior is managed with the
    notes.ini parameter:
    
    NTS_CALENDAR_TRACK_FULL_DEVICEID=true|false
    
    It is false by default, set to true to enable.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Notes Traveler server has been updated to allow the full
    device ID to be stored if desired.  The NTTrack field does have
    a character limit so this may increase chances that the field
    becomes truncated.
    

Temporary fix
