Take 30 seconds to download the easy-to-use Domino Configuration Tuner
(DCT) and start comparing your Domino environment to a set of best practice rules to identify configuration problems. Once you have DCT installed, click "Check for Updates" to download new rules which are added monthly. Here are the new rules added since July:
- In addition to the original rule added in July, we've added a 64 bit version to properly allow folks running 64 bit Domino to take advantage
have been updated to better indicate their appropriate usage. Starting with 8.5, DEBUG_ENABLE_UPDATE_FIX is no longer needed in the server's notes.ini.
Creation of server lists for use in DCT scans has been improved for newly created databases. In addition to the default behavior of using the administrator's mail server to get the list of servers, a different server can now be specified. For example, an administrator can create one DCT with the server list populated for Lotus servers, and another with the list populated for IBM servers.
Also, following many customer requests to get data out of DCT, there is now an action "Export as HTML" which will create 'report.html' in the quicktune directory.

entry in the Notes and Domino wiki.
