We have two versions of Notes on an XPe server: 5.08 and 4.67.  v5.08 is
actually installed, the other version just sits in a subdirectory.  Since
all of our users have a few bits of Notes on the home drives, I scan for
which version of the help file they have (file names are different) and
then provide the appropriate icon to the desktop.

The question seems to hinge on where is the notes.id file residing and how
does it get synchronized.

Example - if it is on the guy's "C" drive and he changes his password - he
would have to manually copy it to his home directory. If he leaves it on =
the home directory and it changes and he logs in offline - he has an old =
password that don't work

Haven't done it via NAL, but we did a fat client to thin client Notes
migration which utilized a script that checked for a local notes desktop
etc, copied required files across to the users %homedrive%%homepath%\notes
directory and then patched the thinclient notes.ini.=20

We are in the process of converting to Notes 5.09x  from Groupwise in this
location, and have a couple of questions.

1 - We push packages out to the clients via NAL
2. The issue that seems to be a stumbling block is the user.id file. - If =
the user dials up from home - obviously he expects this on his C drive, =
Normally we store it in his home directory (H drive).=3D20

Question - anyone done this via NAL

Any thought on best practices???
