Welcome to the #dominoforever Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated jointly by the IBM & HCL Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

For more information and upcoming events around #dominoforever, please visit our Destination Domino page.

Notify before switch to other replica

The Notes client opens a other replica of a database (local or other server) without notification when the server of this database is down.

    Have you tried the setting described in technote Can Notes failover prompts be eliminated? to disable silent failovers?

    Do you want users to
    a) see a prompt and fail over
    b) failover to be silent
    c) do not fail over at all

    In my opinion there should be some configuration options for this scenario:
    a) prompt (ok) and fail over
    b) silent fail over
    c) prompt (ok) and no fail over
    d) prompt (yes/no)  - yes (fail over) / no (stop)
