Using AdminQ to process (web) user requests

First of all, AdminQ is not a typo. Administration Quick (AdminQ) is new as of Domino 12.0.1 and can be used to expedite the processing of Administration Process (AdminP) requests that affect the user IDs of web users, for example, HCL Verse users. The users must have IDs in an ID vault.

AdminQ can also be used for Notes users. Add the following entry to the notes.ini on the server.

Before AdminQ was available, AdminP requests that affected Notes user IDs required (web) users to use an HCL Notes client to authenticate with a Domino server to complete the requests. With AdminQ, the Notes client authentication is no longer required for the completion of these requests.

AdminQ is a thread spawned by AdminP. It works in conjunction with existing AdminP requests. As of HCL Domino 12.0.2, AdminQ runs automatically on the domain administration server and vault administration servers. The first time AdminQ runs, AdminP creates the Administration Quick Requests database (adminq.nsf) which is used by AdminQ for request processing.

AdminQ comes into play when you perform any of the following tasks for users who have IDs in a vault:

  • Rename users (Available starting with HCL Domino 12.0.1.)
  • Recertify users or Notes users (Available starting with Domino 12.0.2. Requires the 12.0.2 or higher adminq.ntf design.)
  • Roll over the public keys in user ID files. (Available starting with Domino 12.0.2. Requires the 12.0.2 or higher adminq.ntf and idvault.ntf designs.)
