aaYou must define a list of servers to which you want to promote databases. From a stored server document you can also predefine who can promote to each of those servers. This improves security by separating server access authority from the authority to create an action.

To Import Servers:

  1. From the Resources tab, choose Resources > Stored Servers.

  2. Click the Import Servers action button.

  3. Click Browse and specify the address book to use.

  4. Click OK.

  5. Each server listed in the Domino Directory will have a Stored Server document.

  6. Delete any servers which are not valid targets

  7. Modify each of the Stored Server documents as follows:

    1. Click the dropdown beside the Promotion Authority List field and select one or more users and/or groups who have the authority to promote to this server. 

    2. When creating promotion paths to this server, any names listed in this field become the only allowed users of that promotion path.

    3. Click the dropdown beside the Allowed Refresh Servers field and select a server that can be refreshed or All When promoting to the specified server, the servers listed are the only servers allowed to refresh databases.

 

To Add a Server

  1. From the Resources tab, choose Resources > Stored Servers.

  2. In the right pane, click the Add Server action button.

  3. The document is Active by default. Leave this setting.

The Verify Stored Servers action

 

To ensure that all the servers required for Promotions are defined and enabled, run Actions > Admin > Verify Stored Servers.  This agent launches a wizard to scan Promotion Paths and Design Refresh steps, and display the names of server that have missing or disabled Stored Server definitions.  Server names can be selected to automatically create or enable Stored Server documents.

Stored Servers created by this action will use the server name for both the Server Name and Description field.  No Promotion Authority entries will be added, allowing any user to promote to this server.  The Allowed Refresh Servers field will be left blank, allowing refresh of databases only on the same server.
