Understanding when roaming user preferences are applied

Eclipse preferences are roamed when the Notes® client starts up.

If preferences are modified on one roaming client, they are not automatically updated on another roaming client that is running. The preferences must be replicated (pushed) to the server during replication of the first roaming client, and then pulled down from the server when the second client is restarted.

File server-based roaming users can temporarily enable or disable roaming on a specific computer by using the settings on the Roaming preferences panel. This setting allows the user to remain a "roaming user" without allowing his roaming-enabled applications to replicate. The Roaming preferences panel is described in the IBM® Notes® 9.0.1 Social Edition Help and is available for file server roaming only.
