Setting up the Reports database

After you set up the IBM® Lotus® Domino® MailTracker Store database, you can use the Reports database (REPORTS.NSF) to generate and store mail usage reports. Although the Reports database is created automatically when you set up the server, before you can generate mail usage reports, you must set up security for the database.

To create the Reports database

  1. From the Domino Administrator, IBM® Lotus® Notes® client, or IBM® Lotus® Domino® Designer client, choose File - Application - New.
  2. At the bottom of the New Application dialog box, click Show advanced templates.
  3. Complete these fields and click OK:
  4. Field



    The name of the server that stores the Mail Tracking Store database (MTSTORE.NSF)



    File name


    Template server

    The name of the server entered in the Server field



To set up security for the Reports database

Note Step 4 of this procedure requires use of the Domino Designer client.

  1. Open the Reports database and choose File - Application - Access control to open the database ACL.
  2. Verify that the server and the server administrator have Manager access, then click OK.
  3. With the Reports database active in your client, choose View - Agents.
  4. Verify that the scheduled agents (Daily, Monthly, and Weekly Report Agents, and the Housecleaning agents) are enabled. Enable agents as necessary by selecting the agent and clicking Enable; then close the Domino Designer.
  5. From the Domino Administrator, click the Configuration tab, open the Server document for the server where you created the Reports database and click the Security tab.
  6. In the Programmability Restrictions - Run unrestricted methods and operations field, enter the names of administrators who need access to the Reports database, and then click Save & Close.
