Ok, here is the story. My team and I had a very bad day yesterday. We were not able to work on our project because Domino Designer decided to take more than an hour for the build process. I tried to find out, what was wrong. My other team members in the head office did not reported this issue. So I had a weird network issue in mind bacause the issue occurred on all machines in the brnch office but was not able to find out any hint, what caused Designer to obviously wait for some action to complete when building the project. Even changing the code in a Java class was not possible. Each keyboard action took some seconds up to minutes to reflect the changes.
We are all working on local replicas of the files. And, it worked the day before … So WE did not change anything on the machine. Aside from this, we, the developers do not have proper rights to change ANYTHING on the machine. The is done by our friends, THE ADMINS.
Today, I saw a message when starting my computer that the Sophos AV has been successfully updated some files. Never seen that before … I decided to take also AV in consideration and looked into the settings. And there it was. “SCAN ALL FILES” and “SCAN IN ALL DIRS”. Exclusions? Well …. NO. I managed to tweak the settings to exclude the Notes dir. And, what do you think? Right, everything now works at full speed again.
Shall I say “Thank you, admins” ?
