Registering an Organization Certifier ID

The registration server is the server that initially stores the Certifier document until the Domino® Directory replicates. You can change it.


  1. Click Registration Server, select the correct server, and then click OK. If you have not specified a registration server in Administration Preferences, the registration server is by default:
    • The local server, if there is one and it contains a Domino® Directory
    • The server specified in the NewUserServer setting in the NOTES.INI file
    • The Administration server
  2. Click Set ID file to change the location where Domino® stores the certifier ID. Be sure to keep the certifier ID file in a secure place so that it is readily accessible to register new servers and users, but safe from misuse. By default, the ID is stored in C:\.
  3. Complete these fields:
    Table 1. ID file options



    Organization name

    The name of the organization. Enter a name different from the one used on the organization certifier ID created when you set up the first Domino® server.

    Country Code

    The country code for the organization.

    Certifier Password

    A case-sensitive password for the certifier. The characters you use for this password depend on the level set in Password Quality Scale.

    Each time you use the certifier ID, Domino® prompts for the password.

    Password Quality Scale

    Level of complexity and variety of characters entered for the password. Domino® sets the default value to 10, which is the highest.

    Security type

    Select either North American (the default) or International. In practice, there is no difference between a North American and an International certifier.

    Mail certification requests to (Administrator)

    The name of the administrator who handles re-certification requests. The name specified here appears in the Certifier document in the Domino® Directory. If you are creating a certifier ID for an off-site administrator, enter that administrator's name in this field.
