> my experience with notes (version 4.5 I guess, or something .5; I am neither the lotus notes administrator nor user) is that notes is not able to handle heavy load on ldap server; it often crashed. dont know if it is related to the notes version, or a corrupt installation. it just turns out better to dump the data with ldapsearch and, using sed, change it to a hash table like the following lines:
just for information:
i also had to install a postfix gateway in front of a domino server. For
this i used an ldap relay recipient map, and postfix is talking directly
to the notes ldap server.
some people had warned me of instabilities of the notes ldap server, but
so far, i never had problem with this. Notes never crashes... The notes
server is a 4.5 or 4.6 or something like that, and we get something like
15000 smtp connections daily.
Of course the danger is that if domino is down, postfix rejects
evrything with a 4xx so we rely heavily on the domino server being up.
