Editorial description(s):
Lotus Domino offers fantastic power to organizations that want to manage communication so that news and ideas get to the people who need them with minimal hassle, both in terms of user trouble and administrator effort. Lotus Domino Administration in a Nutshell: A Desktop Quick Reference is designed to ease the Notes administrator's job even further, by providing a concise list of tools and procedures that come into play during the setup and day-to-day operation of a Notes environment. This book won't be much help to you if you're completely new to Notes, but it may well save your day if you work with multiple groupware environments (perhaps as a consultant) or if you've been called on to make a structural change in a Notes installation that's gone generally untouched for some time. It'll also back you up if you're fresh from Notes training and need help on the job.

This book excels in its documentation of command-line utilities and the entries that appear in the NOTES.INI file. The latter occupies nearly a third of this book, which lists every possible entry that the NOTES.INI parser understands. Each entry appears with its proper syntax, as well as its legal values. You'll find well-reasoned descriptions of each entry as well, along with references to related entries. Documentation of utilities (which are categorized by functional unit such as mail) is similar. --David Wall

Topics covered: The tools and settings with which administrators of Lotus Notes need to be familiar. Sections explain the Notes database infrastructure, its methods of routing and tracking mail, and its performance-monitoring utilities. More focused sections show how Notes works with the Domino environment, Domino Enterprise Connection Services (DECS), and Internet Cluster Manager (ICM). A long section documents NOTES.INI values.

Book Description
With over 55 million seats worldwide, Domino is one of the most effective platforms for developing and deploying messaging and web applications. The release of R5 makes Domino easier to use than ever before. Users can now choose their favorite language to design web applications; centrally modify client configurations instead of hopping from one terminal to the next throughout the company; and visually monitor the health and status of the Domino servers in the network from a single screen. All this capability implies complexity, and it's easy to forget which menu to go to. Here's where Lotus Domino Administration in a Nutshell can help. It's a quick reference that will come in handy again and again for finding solutions to administrative problems. This book covers:

Reader review(s):

Good Reference, August 25, 2000
This is a good book for the experienced and inexperienced Notes administrator. The author, Greg Neilson, obviously has experience in large Lotus/Domino installations, where Lotus-invented procedures frequently break down.

The book is geared towards R5, so it's handy for 4.5/4.6 admins who are making the transition. Many screen captures, lots of tables and tips. [...]

Needs editing. Rough draft quality. Painfull to read., July 3, 2001
This book needs editing. Much more akin to a first rough draft than a finished version ready for print. Painfull to read, it definetely does not live up to the high standards of other O'REILLY books I've read. The book covers a lot of information in a condensed format but unfortunetly has the following shortcomings (listed in order of seriousness):

1) the author often uses very poor sentence structure making absorbing the information difficult. I found myself editing the book so that the meaning would be clearer.
2) many of the screenshots in the book are illegible. There are techniques and tricks for making screenshots high enough quality for print. The screenshots in the book are low quality.
3) the author on occasion uses terms & acronyms before defining them. Sometimes they are not defined.

A must have book, July 25, 2003
Always keep this book within arms reach. Not for the inexperienced. If you know Domino Administration and know how to use this book, it can be your bible. Everyone on my team has one on their bookshelf.

The best book i have ever seen, January 6, 2001
This is not a book for beginners. With a bit of Notes experience, this book gives me what i need. This book is a MUST for all administrators.
