    I assume that you used the same directory structure on the new machine for your Notes. If so the easiest way of moving the notes from one machine to another is as follows 1. Install notes on the new machine. 2. copy the complete notes directory from the old machine to the new one. 3. launch the new set of notes. 4. If a new Ip address has been assigned to the new server you may need to repoint the clients. 5. This is also a good way of moving machine and updating your version of notes as all you have to do once this is done is rerun the setup of the new version on the new machine and it is updated. Hope this helps

    We do this all the time as part of our Disaster Recovery practice. As long as you keep the Directories and drive letters the same and you copy all of you data into the new data directory on the new server. Just make sure this is were you Domino Address Book(names.nsf) is because that holds part of your server config. Your Notes.ini file needs to be copied also. That needs to go into the same spot it came from in 4.5. As far as the IP if it is the same that is great other wise you will need to change the entry in you client's host file or in you DNS server. Beaware of folder redirects if you have any of them the will need to be moved also. If you have any problems you can email me directly like I said we do this regularly.
