I have domino 6.5.4 running on a windows server. I would like to put these components on separate disks: 1. Windows OS 2. Domino logs 3. Domino applications 4. Domino mail files I would like to know what settings can be made to the notes.ini or the server document to get this result. Thanks Jim

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The location of your Domino programs and data is determined by the following lines in your notes.ini:
NotesProgram=C:Program FilesLotusDomino
Directory=C:Program FilesLotusDominodata

If you want a directory or database to exist outside of the above paths you would create a link. That can be done on the Files tab of the Domino Administrator, on the right side under the Tools. You may search the Administrator Help database for the following document: “Creating directory and database links”.

What this actually does is create a text file with a *.dir extension. The text file contains the path of the pointer to the directory. For example:
A file named “logs.dir” would appear in the Open Database dialog as a folder named “logs”. That file could contain the path to a directory such as d:dominoLogs

If you wanted to create a link to a single database, the process is almost the same. What this will actually do is create a text file with a *.nsf extension. The text file would contain the path to a Domino database located outside the default directory path.

    I think the easiest is to create folder links. a folder link is a text file named *.dir placed in the Notes_Data directory. The content of the files is the path the appropriate folder. Let's say you want to place the mail folder in the E:Mail folder. Create a file named mail.dir at the root of NotesData folder. This file should contain E:Mail It is also possible to create databse link by creating a *.nsf text file which should contain the real path to the database. There are more capabilities in folder links such as access restriction but this is an easy way to create them.
