Redirected restore of a Lotus Domino database with the Lotus Domino option “Assign new database instance ID and replica ID” completes successfully, however it does not assign a new database instance ID and replica ID.


Any redirected restore jobs of Domino databases are effectively file restores with no API connection to Domino Server.  Additionally, it is not possible to redirect the restore of a Lotus Domino Database with a new Database Instance ID (DBIID) back to its original location and have the original database ID at that location at the same time. 


 In order to assign a new DBIID, with or without new Replica ID to a Lotus Domino database that was backed up, it must be restored to the original location.  The same holds true for a Point in time restore which is also only possible with a restore to original location.  Note that Point in Time restores also require that the Domino Server have Archived Transaction Logging enabled.
