To get: warning& = notesDatabase .SizeWarning

To set: notesDatabase .SizeWarning = warning&


The size warning threshold for a database specifies the amount of disk space that the server administrator is willing to provide for that database before displaying a warning; therefore, the SizeWarning property can only be set by a script that has administrator access to the server on which the database resides.

If there is no size warning threshold for the database, this property returns 0.

In the Administration Client, use the "Set Quotas" tool to set the size warning.

The database does not need to be open to use this property.
