DISASTER PLANNING - RECOVERY - CONTINUITY

  • Lotus Notes Diagnostic Tool (LND) - Automatically perform repetitive tasks associated with files from a Lotus Domino server crash, hang, or performance issues. This FREE tool (from the Lotus Sandbox) is based on the internal tool that Lotus Support uses to analyze NSD and other files resulting from a Lotus Domino server crash, hang, or performance issues.
     
  • Recovery for Lotus Notes - repairs corrupted Lotus Notes databases (.nsf files). Supported Lotus Notes versions: 8.0, 7.0, 6.5 and 6.0 -- The recovered data is saved into a set of DXL (Domino Extensible Language) files to be used for rebuilding the Lotus Notes database. This can be done manually or using an auto-generated rebuild batch file. (Does not restore Applets, StyleSheets and DataConnections, recover OLE objects, or recover file attachments.)  Find out if a Lotus Notes file is recoverable using the demo version of Recovery for Lotus Notes on it, which will recover a limited number of strings in each form. No additional forms or any other elements and features of the original corrupted file will be restored by the full commercial version if not present in demo output.
     
  • Useful Disaster Recovery Definitions and Concepts
  • The Seven Tiers of Disaster Recovery
     
  • You Can't Prevent Disasters - Planning for Recovery -  ESSENTIAL READING FOR ALL
        This is an excellent general presentation, and includes a section specific to Lotus Notes/Domino
          Unfortunately, this link is broken -- we are trying to re-establish it with the author
  • Intranet Journal >> Backup Strategies for Lotus Notes (a 1997 article, yet still worth a read)

  • See also: Domino for iSeries Best Practices Guide (Part 2 covers Domino for iSeries backup)
  • Choosing the right backup strategy for Domino 6 for iSeries
     
  • Data integrity - the most overlooked aspect of the Lotus Notes environment ... "In the IBM Lotus Notes and Domino environment, data integrity issues such as replication conflicts, disconnected links, or hidden or lost fields are common. In a Notes environment, unlike more "mainstream" database systems such as Oracle or DB2, it is rare to find a database administrator, someone who has the specific responsibility of managing the data within the system. As a result, the integrity (or lack thereof) of the Notes production environment can put your organization at risk."

    • Lotus Workplace: The next Notes?  - Lotus is positioning Workplace as an alternative to Microsoft Office for companies that need more than e-mail, Word docs and spreadsheets. In the long run it could be Workplace, not WebSphere, that puts Notes out to pasture. ... "IBM is hoping that nobody will think it's trying to force Workplace down anyone's throat. Instead, it's seen as an incremental, gradual migration strategy. You don't have to [migrate] if you don't want to, but if you do there's a lot of new stuff to enable you to more closely integrate your Lotus desktop with the other things you're doing on the desktop. ... I don't think IBM believes people who have Microsoft Office are going to say 'Let's ditch this and get that Lotus stuff. ... IBM and Lotus are seeking to ensure that Notes DLLs can be used in the Workplace client environment. Lotus is smoothing the path, no longer making it appear that it's trying to create this migration imperative. Instead it's just an option. Eventually, to speed that migration, there will be tools available to assist developers in making the transition."
