Beginning with Domino 8.5 there are many more files installed under 'domino' directory of the the data directory. Some contents, like 'domino/js', have been blocked from access via Domino API calls. This means that scanning the data directory takes much less time than it would have if the 'domino/js' subdirectory had not been blocked. However, other subdirectories, like 'domino/html', are still included in the file scan. An example of such a scan is when the Domino Administrator client enumerates server databases via it's 'Files' control.
The NOTES.INI option ADMIN_CLIENT_SKIP_DOMINO=1 will disable enumeration of every single file under the 'domino' directory.
When ADMIN_CLIENT_SKIP_DOMINO is absent or set to '0', the default behavior is to scan many (not all) of the files under the 'domino' subdirectory.
Set ADMIN_CLIENT_SKIP_DOMINO=1 in the server NOTES.INI to improve internal server performance and reduce Domino Administrator 'Files' control initialization time.
This option is only available with Domino 8.5 and later.
Changes to this option are automatically detected.
