I have listed the process I use for recreating notes id’s. Use the Admin client while completing the steps below.
1. Open your Domino Directory on your Admin server and go to the people and groups tab. Locate the user that needs a new ID file and cut (ctrl + x or edit – cut) the person doc from the address book.
2. Under Tools in the navigator on the right hand side of the client, click People, then Register. Check the Advanced check box. The only 2 sections you need to worry about on his form are the Basic and ID info sections. Fill out the form accordingly and make sure the spelling of the name matches exactly as it did before, any typos here will result in the user not being able to access db’s. MAKE SURE you select “none” for the mail system. On the ID info tab in the register person form, be sure to select the correct certifier and uncheck “in domino directory” and select the check box “in file” and select the location where you would like to copy the id file to. Once you are done filling out the form click the green check mark to add the person to the registration queue and click the Register button.
3. Go back to the People and Groups tab and paste the original person doc back into the domino directory (ctrl + v or edit – paste). You will now see 2 person docs for the user. Open the person doc that you just created (one way to verify that you are in the correct person doc is to make sure the person doc does not list any mail file information). Click on the Certificates tab and highlight and copy the entire “notes certified public key”.
4. Open the users other (original) person doc in edit mode and paste the key you copied from step 3 into the notes certified public key in this person doc. Save and Close.
5. Delete the “new” person doc (the one with no mail file information) from he domino directory and replicate the changes to the user home/mail server.
6. Replace the users current id with the one you just created. If the user has multiple machines/clients make sure you replace the id on those machines as well.
That should do it….
