More Information

Issues that are fixed and features that are added in this update

Issue 1

After the update is installed, you can set the _MMS_CertDaysToExpire property to a value that is larger than 99 days.

Issue 2

Fixes an issue in which a full import is interrupted or cannot start when the full text index feature is not enabled or updated on the Domino server address book database.

After the update is installed, the full import does not require the full text index feature to be enabled.

Issue 3

Fixes an issue in which the distinguished names of imported objects differ from the reference attributes (for example, the member attribute). This issue causes placeholder objects to be created in the connector space.

Issue 4

Fixes an issue in which the Connector reports Argument has been deleted" because of the bad objects in Lotus Domino.

Issue 5

Fixes an issue in which the MailDomain attribute is mapped incorrectly to the Forwarding address attribute.

Issue 6

Fixes an issue in which the KEYFILENAME value in the Notes.ini file is not reset to the original value after Lotus Domino Connector finishes the operation.

Feature 1

Assume that certain references are not in the distinguished name format. This typically occurs on the member attribute for groups. For example, you find that the email addresses that represent the users outside Lotus Domino and the email address that represent users inside Lotus Domino are in different formats. 

After the update is installed, Lotus Domino Connector can create real objects in the connector space in so that these users can be joined or provisioned to the Forefront Identity Manager 2010 metaverse.

Note To enable this update, select Enable creation of place holder objects on the global parameters page, and then select the _Contact object type on the Select object types page. After the configuration is enabled, entries in reference attributes that cannot be translated to a distinguished name are created as a _Contact object.

Feature 2

Adds support to import and set up Contacts and non-certified users. To set up new non-certified users, use the _MMS_IDStoreType property.

Feature 3

Improves performance by using a larger page size setting on the run profile. The default page size now is 1,000. To increase import speed, you can change the setting to a value between 2,500 and 5,000 to reduce the number of data exchange between the Domino server.
