Domino Early Access Program drop 2 is available

HCL Domino 12.0.2 Early Access Drop 2 is available for download on flexnet.

HCL Domino 12.0.2 Early Access Program drop 2 provides these new features and enhancements:

  • A new tab in the Server document, NIFNSF, allows you to configure moving database view indexes out of databases. Previously, you configured this feature through server notes.ini settings.
  • DAOS Encryption Manager (daosencmgr) now provides the -O [outfile] option to output command results to a specified file. In addition, the DAOS_ENCRYPT_MGR_ENABLE=1 notes.ini setting is no longer required to enable it.
  • Building or rebuilding views take 5-10% less time with Domino 12.0.2.
  • C API OSLoadLibrary changes
    On Windows, if a fully qualified path is not specified for a library to be loaded, the C API OSLoadLibrary no longer searches the path for the library. Instead, by default, this API searches the Notes or Domino executable directory, the Windows System directory, and the Windows directory. You can use notes.ini variables of the format OSSL_<#>= to specify up to five additional locations to search. For example: OSSL_3=”d:\Application\Libraries”. Full details of this this change will be available in the next release of the C API SDK.
  • Smart Server Startup
    A new feature called Smart Server Startup prevents users from connecting to a Domino server until it is fully up and ready to accept user requests. For example, if a server crashes, Smart Server Startup allows users to connect to it only after the server has fully recovered. To see Smart Server Startup activity during server startup, use the notes.ini setting debug_qos=1. To disable the feature, use the notes.ini setting DisableSmartServer=1.
