DirXML 1.1a

Notes Driver


Notes: Subscriber Query:  Document Search failed on @Matches (Type; "__driver_identification_class__") ID = 4063.  Message: Database Notes-Dstest<Path>\namesdv1.nsf has not been opened yet.

Notes: NotesPublicationShim: Error opening <Path>ndsrep.nsf. ID = 4043. Message: Database open failed (%1). Retrying...

Error 4043

Error 4063

Database open failed

Database <Notes Names Database path> has not opened yet.


Full path was displayed in NDSREG.EXE for Output and Input database names.


The NDSREG.EXE utility shows the full path to the Input Database (Names.nsf) databse and it shows the full path to the Output Database (NDSREP.NSF).  The documentation shows as not having the full path in these fields.  Only the database names should be used.  Also, in the Driver Parameters section, the directory and update database lines should not have the full path either.



Did you Copy NOTES.JAR from <NotesServer Directory> to \Novell\NDS\Lib?
Remove the NDSREP.nsf file and let a new one generate.
Make sure you have a Environment variable set for NOTESNTSERVICE with a value of 1.
