Do we need to specify the path to lotus\domino\notes.ini or
[The entire infrastructure is one the same machine. We are only doing a prototyping hence we installed lotus domino server, lotus notes, lotus administrator and BES Server all on one machine.]
Even if i specify a wrong path, BESUserAdminClient works fine except for add user operation.
Do notes.ini have any significance in this context ? Does it do the job of what MAPI Profile does in case of exchange ?
Does add user command has anything to do with notes.ini file ?
OK, righteo. I have no idea what a MAPI Profile in exchange does, so I cannot help you there.
Here is a "simplified" guide to notes and domino:
The underlying architecture is largely the same, in that there are two really fundamental components:
Both of those files hold important configuration information for the domino or notes installation - those filenames are the same for the server (domino) or client (notes).
Each installation of notes/domino requires it's own notes.ini. I have no idea which paths you have used to install domino/notes/admin/designer, hopefully you have some clear separation.
There are several points to note here:
a) It is not recommended to install BES on your primary domino server. Setup a separate domino server for BES.
b) It is not recommended to install the notes client on a box running the domino server
I'd have to look into the BESUserAdminService to answer more fully, but FYI you listed 2 paths:
lotus\domino\notes.ini ---> This path implies it is the domino server's file
lotus\notes\notes.ini ---> This path implies it is the notes client's file
