Preventing the use of a Domino® Directory replica as a remote primary

You can prevent servers with configuration directories from using a specific replica of the IBM® Domino® Directory as a remote primary.

About this task

You can prevent a replica from being used only when servers with configuration directories use the default logic, and not directory assistance, to locate a remote primary Domino® Directory. You might prevent the use of a specific replica to avoid the use of a server that has limited capacity.


  1. From the Domino® Administrator, select the server that stores the primary Domino® Directory.
  2. Select the Configuration tab, and select Server > Current Server Document.
  3. Click Edit Server.
  4. On the Basics tab, in the Directory Information section for the directory type, deselect Allow this directory to be used as a remote primary directory for other servers.
  5. Click Save & Close.
