Yep, I'm glad it is Friday

The whole backup thing seems to be going away now!  Today I start on a new portal application for Lotus Notes clients.  The old one has been around for over 5 years and needed some work anyway.  Hopefully it will only take a couple of weeks to complete and roll out to the users,

The backup saga continues...

Well I got about 1/4 of the files replicated to the new backup server last night.  Hopefully I will get more than that tonight.  Looks like another late night.

Failed Backups

We have been having a lot of trouble getting our backups to work correctly.  I think the problem rests with the backup software not being able to handle the way that Domino handles open nsf files.  I am starting a test that will hopefully get all of my e-mail files backed up.

I have set up a new Domino server, the entire purpose of the new server is to replicate mail files to it once a day.  My plan is to have the domino server start up in the evening and replicate all of the mail files.  I will then shutdown the domino server.  I will have the windows admin backup the nsf files without the domino server running.  Hopefully this will solve the problem.
