The following steps outline re-installing Quickr to a server where either the Domino or Quickr installation has been compromised.
One such example is the following:
Domino 8.5.1 FP5 / Quickr 8.5.1 server where Domino is upgraded to version 8.5.2. Because Quickr 8.5.1 does not support Domino 8.5.2, you will need to revert Domino to a supported version.
In a case such as the above, the only resolution is to completely re-install Domino and Quickr while saving and restoring data from the compromised installation.
This article assumes a single server running on a Windows platform. Please use this as a guide for clustered deployments and contact Support if there are questions.
Stage 1: Preparation
Shut down Domino
Move data directory out of Domino directory to a safe, backup location. In this example, we will use the convention that the entire data directory has been moved to the C:\backup folder.
Collect files for reference and migration:
- server.id / any ID files
- all data contained within the LotusQuickr direcotry
Uninstall Domino completely. Run the uninstall procedure in Add/Remove programs. After it completes, manually delete any remnants of Domino (excluding the files you've backed up from above).
Stage 2: Installation:
Install Domino 8.5.1 using the server.id from above
Install Domino 8.5.1 FP5
Examine the value used for your prior installation. Open notes.ini and find the value for QuickPlaceAdmin. Take note of the value after "CN=" and before the first slash. This was the value used in the prior installation.
Install Quickr 8.5.1, using the ID identified in step 3.
Install the latest Quickr 8.5.1 Fix Pack as found on Fix Central
Stage 3: Data Repopulation
Repopulate AreaTypes folder. By default in Quickr 8.5.1 (after installation), you will have the following in [ Domino Data ]\LotusQuickr\AreaTypes\:
You will need to move any other folder and its contents from the backup:
into the newly created
[ Domino Data ]\LotusQuickr\AreaTypes\
directory, with the exception of the "Entry" directory. Quickr Entry is not supported on 8.5 and beyond.
Move any place data to the new installation. Access the backup directory's place data here:
The directories you should ignore (and not copy over) are as follows:
AreaTypes\ (you've already copied this)
You may ignore all files.
You should copy over any other directories to:
[ Domino Data ]\LotusQuickr\
Move qpconfig.xml into the new [ Domino Data ] directory
Transfer any other notes.ini settings that you see fit.
Stage 4: Re-registration of Places
Bring server up
Access the main administrative place (LotusQuickr\lotusquickr) with the ID used in Stage 2 Step 4.
Set up User Directory connection as before
From server console, issue the command:
load qptool register -a
(We do not use -install here because the assumption is that names.nsf still contains mail in database documents for all places. If this is not the case, run load qtpool register -install instead).
