How to move the Resource & Reservations database to a different server


 Technote (FAQ)



Question
How do you move a Resource & Reservations (R&R) database on one Lotus Notes server to another server within the same domain? 


Answer
Moving an R&R database from one server to another.
1. Pull a new replica of the R&R database from the old server to the new server.

2. Open the access control list (ACL) of the R&R database on the new server.
a) Change the Server ACL to the new server.

b) Set the Manager and [Create Resource] (if needed) ACL to the new Manager and Resource Creator.

c) Select the Advanced icon and set the Administration server to the new server name.

* To open the ACL in Notes releases prior to 8, choose File --> Database --> Access Control.

* To open the ACL in Notes 8 and later releases, choose File --> Application --> Access Control.

3. The following agent can be run on the Lotus Domino Directory to change the room/resource mail-in documents from the old server name to the new server name. You do not have to worry about the domain since that is not changing. Run the agent on all room/resource documents that reside in the database that you are moving: 

FIELD MailServer:= "CN=newserver/OU=neworgunit/O=neworg";

where:
"newserver" is the new Domino Server that the database was moved to.
"neworgunit" is the new organizational unit of the new domino server (if this applies).
"neworg" is the new organizational certifier of the new Domino server.
"newdomain" is the new mail domain that the R&R database was moved to.

4. Run the following commands on the new server:
Load fixup your_resource_reservations_database_name.nsf
Load updall names.nsf -t "($rooms)" -r
Load updall names.nsf -t "($resources)" -r

5. Once you move the database, open the R&R database in Domino Designer and go to Shared Code --> Agents. Enable all scheduled agents (represented with a clock icon).

This will complete your move.
