One thing I forgot to mention about IBM
Lotus Nomad is that it will only install from the standard ‘Notes Client’
installation files. If you try the setup commandline on the Admin/Designer
client install files then it will just fail. So how do I go about getting
a notes admin client working on the USK Key, well it’s actualy very very
The differences between a standard notes
client install and the admin install are very few. They are both
built on the same base package, indeed if you remember back to the R4 days
you didn’t even need to install anything else for designer access to databases,
it was already there and this is kinda still true today.
To turn your recently installed Lotus
Nomad client into a Lotus Admin Designer Nomad client you just need to
copy over 4 files to the USB Key :
That’s it, nothing more is needed. Just
start up your Lotus Nomad client and you will see the icons for the Admin
and designer clients appear like magic in the bookmark bar.
Oh and I keeep mentioning USB Keys when
talking about Lotus Nomad. Well it will work with any removable drive.
As long as the OS sees it as a drive letter then even your iPod could carry
around your Lotus Nomad client and you’d probably have a lot more room
for creating local replicas…
