Add a field in a desktop policy that will allow an administrator push out Notes.ini parameters to the users desktops.  We would also need to be able to recall or remove Notes.ini settings (if possible).  The most recent example of when this would be helpful would be pushing out the "ENABLE_EARLY_AUTHENTICATION=1" which speeds up the client start up for 8.5.  I am upgrading users from 7.0.3 to 8.5.  This parameter is not being put into the Notes.ini

This is available in the 8.5 admin clients Desktop settings document under Custom Settings tab.

I don't think you can remove INI settings but you can definitely add them.

Yes, this is possible for some versions now. I'm pretty sure 7 can do this. 8.5 added only the UI in the desktop settings doc.

I think you could workaround the lack of a remove option by setting no or a useless value for the parameter.

Thats possible right... :

More information can be found ini the admin help

This is feasible by changing a bit the policy form since v6. In 8, it is added in standard.

You can remove entries by putting nothing after the = sign.

This will remove the entry if displayed in the policy this way as the notes.ini variable.


FYI: Server console to remove an entry from a server notes.ini
