The Domino Administrator 8.5 client has received a few enhancements, mostly to support new Domino server features such as DAOS and ID Vault.
A new usability enhancement to the Domino Administrator client is the ability to copy and paste the data from many of the server panels. For example, the Files panel holds a diverse set of information about your server’s databases such as file size, file name, ODS version, DAOS information, and more. Now, you can select the rows of information in the panel, copy the data, and then paste it into a spreadsheet.
When working with a DAOS-enabled server you will want to have quick access to some basic DAOS statistics for each DAOS-enabled database. An enhancement to the Domino Administrator’s Files panel gives you the ability to view the DAOS state (read/write, read-only, disabled), the number of attachments that the database has in the repository, and the size of the data in the repository. This information is provided in three new columns: DAOS State, DAOS Count, and DAOS Size respectively.
These columns should be visible by default, but if they are not you can add them from the Administration Preferences dialogue by selecting File -> Preferences -> Administration Preferences. Once in the Administration Preferences select the Files tab and scroll through the list of Available Columns until you find the DAOS columns. You can then select these columns and move then into the Use These Columns section.
To support ID Vault implementations, some new features have been added to the Administrator client.
In the Configuration panel you will now find an ID Vaults entry in the Tools side bar. This new section gives you the ability to Create, Manage, and Delete ID Vaults, as well as invoke the Password Reset Authority configuration.
Also, in the People & Groups panel you will find an ID Vaults section in the Tools side bar which will give you access to Reset Password, Set ID Download Count, Extract ID From Vault, and Password Reset Authority.
