Deleting databases from the Domain Index

You can delete databases from the Domain Index. You must have Manager access to a database to delete it from the Domain Index.


  1. From the Domino® Administrator, select the server that contains the databases that you want to delete from the Domain Index.
  2. Click the Files tab.
  3. Optional: To confirm you have Manager access in the ACL for a database you want to delete, on the Files tab, right-click a database and choose Access Control > Manage to display its ACL.
  4. Select the databases you want to delete.
  5. In the Tools pane, click Database and then select Multi-Database Index.
  6. Select Disable.
  7. Click OK.


The database is deleted from the index after the next update has been performed by both the Catalog task and the Domain Indexer task.

Note: Removing a database from the Domain Catalog or deleting every copy of a database also has the effect of deleting the database from the Domain Index.
