|Notes ID Vault||The Notes ID Vault is a server-based database that holds protected copies of IBM® Notes® user IDs. An ID vault allows administrators and users to easily manage Notes user IDs. Users are assigned to a vault through policy configuration, and copies of user IDs are uploaded to a vault automatically once the policy has taken effect.|
In an IBM SmartCloud Notes (SmartCloud Notes) hosted-only environment, this feature is enabled by default and administered on the SmartCloud Notes servers by IBM®. In other words, this feature is part of SmartCloud Notes that is administered "in the cloud."
Observing the process
- Here is the user's Notes ID file (LLN_gbrandini_012011214813.id), stored in the \notes\data directory.
- The user accidentally deletes the ID.
- The Notes ID is restored the next time the user logs in to SmartCloud Notes through the IBM Notes client.
The user ID can now be seen again, in the \notes\data
