  • For a Domino 8 mail server or Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway, you must use one of the following clients.
Notes 8.0.2 with hotfixes
Notes 8.0.1 with hotfixes
Notes 8.0 with hotfixes

  • For a Domino 7 mail server or Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway, you must use one of the following clients:
Notes 8.0.2 with hotfixes
Notes 8.0.1 with hotfixes
Notes 8.0 with hotfixes
Notes 7.0.3 with hotfixes

Notes 7.0.2 with hotfixes

For the latest information on supported versions of Domino software and the required hotfixes, see the Enterprise Vault Compatibility Charts book, which is available from this address:

To run EVInstall.nsf to configure mail templates

1. Sign EVInstall.nsf with the user ID that will be used to run it.
2. Log on to Lotus Notes on the Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway with the user ID that will run the application.
3. Open the Symantec Enterprise Vault 8.0 - Domino Installer application (EVInstall.nsf).
4. In the application page, select the Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway and target Domino mail server.
5. Select the option to sign the database templates with the current Notes ID, and if DWA is required, select Domino Web Access Forms Files.
6. If vault cache will be used, select Install Vault Cache.
7. Click Install Symantec Enterprise Vault 8.0 database design templates to start the process. The application will take several minutes to create the new Enterprise Vault templates.
8.  When the update is complete, double-click each log line in the lower pane of the window and check that there were no errors reported.

Completing the installation:
This section describes how to check the installation and deploy the Lotus Notes and DWA extensions to target Domino mail servers.
1.  On the Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway and the Domino mail server where the database design templates were created, run the Designer task to update the Enterprise Vault design templates with design elements inherited from their corresponding master templates. To do this, type, in the server console, the command that is appropriate to your system, as follows:
■ On a Domino 8.0.x Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway: no action required.
■ On a Domino 8.0.x mail server: no action required.
■ On a Domino 7.0 Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway:
load design -f EVDG_DWA7.ntf
■ On a Domino 7.0 mail server:
load design -f EV_DWA7.ntf
■ On a Domino 6.5.x mail server:
load design -f EV_iNotes6.ntf
This will update the Enterprise Vault design templates with changes from the inherited design templates.
2.  If you had previously customized the templates, confirm that the templates still exist and function properly in the Enterprise Vault mail templates.
3.  The Symantec Enterprise Vault 8.0 - Domino Installer (EVInstall.nsf) creates new database templates that need to deployed to all Domino mail servers.

Updating mail files with the new design:
The final task to give users the full Enterprise Vault client functionality is to replace the design of their mail file with the appropriate Enterprise Vault mail
template. The template used will depend on which mail template version users are using and whether they are using iNotes/DWA.
■ On Domino 8.0.x Lotus Notes and DWA users should be using the EV_Mail8.ntf.
■ On Domino 7.x Lotus Notes users should be using the EV_Mail7.ntf, and DWA users should be using EV_DWA7.ntf.
■ On Domino 6.5.x, Lotus Notes users should be using EV_Mail6.ntf, and iNotes users should be using ev_iNotes6.ntf.
There are two methods of replacing the design:
■ To update a small number of mail files, click File, then Database, and then Replace Design in the Administration client.
■ To update a large number of mail files, stop the mail router and then use the Convert Domino server task.
Because the Convert server task is resource intensive, it is recommended to run it out of peak hours. For a large mail server it may take some hours to convert all mail files.
To stop the mail router, type the following command in the Domino server console:
tell router quit
The simplest use of Convert is when the same mail file template is applied to all users. In the following example command, EVR7mail is applied to all users:
Load convert mail\*.nsf * ev_mail7.ntf
Take care when using the asterisk for the existingtemplatename argument, to avoid inadvertently converting users to the wrong template. To examine the full syntax of the Convert task, type the following at the Domino server console:
load convert -?
Note: To upgrade existing user-created folders in each mail file with the Enterprise Vault Lotus Notes extensions you use the -u parameter of the Convert utility or choose 'Actions' and the 'Upgrade Folder Design' from within the mail file.

The following steps facilitate setting up subsequent new users. These changes ensure that the generic Domino archiving user automatically can access the new mail file and that the mail file is using the correct mail template:
■ In the Access Control List for the Enterprise Vault Mail Template, add the generic Domino archiving user with Editor access, and 'Delete documents' and 'Create shared folders/views' permissions. When typing in the user, enclose the name in square brackets. This ensures that the user is automatically added to the ACL of any mail file that is created from the template.
■ To ensure that administrators use the correct mail template when registering new users, change the default mail template in the administration preferences.
To change the default mail template, do the following:
■ From the Domino Administrator client select File, then Preferences, then Administration Preferences.
■ Click the Registration tab, and then click Mail Options.
■ Change the mail file template to the appropriate Enterprise Vault mail template and click OK twice to save the preferences.
