APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Customer reported they always get this warning when installing
    Notes Traveler:
    
    WARNING - Unable to determine the version of the Domino Server.
    The Domino Server version may not be supported.
    
    java.lang.Exception: Notes initialization failure - err 421
    
    The problem only seems to occur when the notes.ini file is not
    in a standard location on the system.  In this particular case
    the notes.ini is on a different physical drive then the program
    directory.
    

Local fix

  • Temporarily copy notes.ini to Domino program dir.
    

Problem summary

  • If notes.ini file not in current working directory on Windows,
    the Traveler install may not be able to detect the Domino server
    version.  This results in the warning shown in the error
    description.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This appears to be a limitation in the Domino Java API.  The
    notes.ini file was in the path, just not current working
    directory.  Update is to ensure it is in current working
    directory for purposes of the Traveler install.
    

Temporary fix
