I did a collection the other day of a few machines. These machines were using Lotus Notes.
The NSF's are encrypted, but it's fine as i have the user.id and the passwords... So i thought.
It seems that some of the databases are locked down so i cant turn the encryption off. In the database properties, all the options and "change-able" data is greyed out. Almost as though i have access, just not access to modify the properties.
I can see a few ways around this, but would like to see how others have dealt with it. It's becomming a problem because im about to feed it through my processing cluster. I have had to set all my worker boxes to use the original user.id file. Obviously this is painful because i need to re-assign the user-id for each custodians inbox.
So my questions:
1) Any way to remove that encryption? Properties -> Encryption Settings -> Do not locally encrypt is greyed out.
2) Any way to stop the password prompt when lotus notes starts under the user id? (not the best, but atleast i will not have to enter the password multiple times when processing)
3) I'm thinking if i can create a copy of the database to a new NSF, Lotus might drop some of the local permissions and allow me to turn off encryption. If so, how do i make a copy that copies all the templates etc.
Thanks all in advance - i hate lotus notes, it always gives me pain.

I know a little about the issues you are having regarding Lotus Notes databases. Have you tried using "Notespeeker" for Lotus Notes. You should be able to obtain a copy from the IBM/Lotus web site. "Notespeeker" will allow you to look into any database within notes as long as you have the proper authorization level. It's a pretty neat tool if you're not familiar with Lotus Notes.
Check it out, I think you'll be surprised at its versatility and usability.
Get this program of NSF file reader that will helps you to read NSF file and convert NSF file into PST format. Program safe for exporting NSF file to PST, EML and MSG format with whole versions of Lotus Notes NSF and Outlook file.
