Installation features

These Domino features and enhancements can help you upgrade, deploy, and adopt new releases faster.

New one-touch setup features

The JSON configuration file that you use for one-touch Domino setup now includes parameters for the following features:
  • Create a full-text index
  • Autoregister servers with specific names
  • Create response documents
  • Create replicas on additional servers
  • FindDocument criteria can be specified by using a formula
  • An additional server can be created using files in a “seed” directory if the first server is unavailable

For details, see Preparing input parameters in a JSON file in the one-touch setup documentation.

Domino installation includes HCL Verse

Verse is now installed by default on Windows, AIX, and Linux (this isn't currently available on IBM i).

If you don't want Verse installed, during the Domino installation process you can select Domino Custom Enterprise Server as the server type, and then uncheck Verse in the list of options.

Be notified of latest product versions

This opt-in feature makes administrators aware of the latest version available for Domino and Domino companion products. when any version 14 or later Domino server starts, it displays a message indicating whether the server is running the latest version of Domino and, if not, what the latest version is.

If enabled, this feature also displays information about the latest available product in the Domino Directory and on the Configuration tab of Domino Administrator.

For more information, see Setting auto-notifications for latest product info.

Install changes to be aware of

Domino install no longer supports the notes.ini in the executable directory on Windows. The installation program now puts the notes.ini in the Data directory, which is the default on partitioned install on Windows and all other platforms. On upgrade of an existing non-partitioned Windows server, install moves the notes.ini from the executable directory to the Data directory.
