We have moved databases from one server to another one and now the icons on users client do not work anymore. 

Instead of deleting the icons and recerate them, is there a tool or a script to automatically modify the information in the icons property?

Server is 6.5.6 and clients are 6.5.5

Thank you.

    The link above is for mail files.... this will not help you if you want to move users DB ICONS on their workspaces to another server. In Version 8 you can set deletion stubs as pointers that will redirect all access to the location there to some where else. Cool but not much help for you at the moment being on 6.5. If the OLD and new servers are clustered then mark the old DB as out of service and the users will fail over. You could send a link stating the new location to your users. This shoudl work if the link includes the server name not UNIVERSAL ID. There are tools out there that you can purchase that will name the ICON or there is the DSKTOOL Here is the read me info on the DSKTOOL.exe ........................................................ Overview of Download: The DSKTOOL.EXE Utility for Lotus Notes/Domino 5.x essentially remediates the users desktop icons in a recertification exercise. rename.scr and restore.scr are sample script files. Instruction on How to Use: Iris desktop tool modification utility, Version 1.13 Copyright (c) Iris Associates, Inc. 1999. All rights reserved. dsktool <scriptfilename> -Options The script file should have one or more lines with the following formats: Rename <Old Server Name>, <New Server Name>. Rename <Old Server/File Name>, <New Server/File Name> Delete <Old Server Name>. Delete <Old Server/File Name> For example: Rename OldServer NewServer Rename Server/OldOrganization Server/NewOrganization Delete DeletedServer Note: The server names can be specified as Server/Org. If a server has hierarchy, it must be specified. If a server name has any embedded spaces, a comma MUST be used to separate the old name and new name. -Q (Q)uiet mode. Suppresses all messages. -V (V)erbose. Shows files that were not changed as well. -D Do not allow shut(D)own of the client. -R Do not allow (R)estart of the client. -? (H)elp. Display this. Additional Notes: If a server does not have a space, the old format will still work. If a server name has a space, it should be followed by a comma. i.e. All of the following are valid lines Rename ServerOld ServerNew Rename ServerOld with a space, ServerNew with a space new Rename ServerOld with a space,ServerNew with a space new - the file supports both native character sets and LMBCS This can be run manually, or via a POST_OPEN db event using LotusScript and creating a scriptfilename to feed to the tool.
