Choosing the types of files you see in the Files tab

You can filter the files displayed either by one type, or by a custom selection of multiple types.


  1. From the Domino® Administrator, click the Files tab.
  2. In the Show me box, select one of the following options to control the type of files that the files pane displays:
    • Databases only -- Displays databases but not templates
    • Templates only -- Displays templates and databases that act as templates
    • Mailboxes only -- Displays only MAIL.BOX databases for administrators to open quickly when monitoring mail
    • All database types -- Displays all databases and templates
    • All file types -- Displays all types of files
    • Database links only -- Displays only database links (text files that the Domino® Directory uses to link to databases or directories).
    • DB2® files only -- Displays only IBM® DB2® Unified Database Enterprise Server Edition enabled Notes® databases.
      Note: You can no longer create or configure DB2® databases in Domino®, but databases created and configured in an earlier release are supported.
    • Database redirects only -- Displays only those databases which are database replica redirects of the original database
    • Custom -- You specify the file types to display
  3. To choose a combination of files to display, in the box, select Custom, select one or more of these options, and then click OK:
    • Databases
    • Templates -- Displays all templates except advanced templates
    • Advanced templates -- Displays advanced templates
    • Database Links
    • Mail boxes
    • ID files
    • Modem files
      Note: Support for direct dialup modem (X.PC) connections is available only in releases of Domino® earlier than release 8.5. You can use the Domino® Administrator client to configure and maintain direct dialup modem support, but only for servers running releases earlier than 8.5.
    • DB2® files
    • Extensions -- You can further customize the display by specifying one or more file extensions, separated by commas. Only those files types display.
