Look Into Your Notes.ini, Please

If you recently have installed a new Domino server and enabled the compression of the TCPIP Port during install, the server notes.ini parameter has a wrong value set.

The line added to the notes.ini file is as follows: TCPIP=TCP,0,15,0,,32
The correct value is TCPIP=TCP,0,15,0,,12320

To correct the problem, take the following steps to set the correct value:

  • Launch the Domino server.
  • Disable the TCPIP port compression.  To do so in the Domino Administrator client, go to Configurations -> Tools -> Server -> Ports Setup.
  • Save the document.
  • Enable the compression again, and Save.

  1. Interesting…

    I just double checked a newly built server and sure enough, I have TCPIP=TCP,0,15,0,,32 in my notes.ini

    I tried the steps that you mention, but I get no change in the notes.ini
    I receive a popup box that says “You must restart port or server for changes to take effect”

    What happens if you just change the notes.ini variable to TCPIP=TCP,0,15,0,,12320 and wait for your server to reboot?

  2. Indeed on our server we had the same problem. I fixed it with the solution above. But when i looked in the log.nsf -by usage -by database i saw that compression already was displayed (KBbytescompressed & KBBytesuncompressed)
