Over many years and through many customer projects I created a lot of code and tools. Most of them only for particular projects. But some time ago, I could make at least two of them easy to use for all administrators without any development background.
I want to contribute these tools to the Lotus Notes community and hopefully some of you find it useful. You can find it on OpenNTF as an open source project.
The ACL Tool can be used to manage the database ACL on one or multiple servers. You can create configuration documents and specify a lot of options to change, modify or remove ACL entries. There is also an option to apply a setting only to the owner of a mailfile.
The Cluster tool is also a direct result of my laziness (as most of my tools). You don‘t have to care about creating replicas of all databases on both cluster servers. You can just create a configuration, specify some options and the tool checks automatically the defined databases and directories and creates replicas if necessary.
Feel free to download and use it on your servers.
Feedback is very welcome (positive, negative, bugs, improvement requests, etc…).
I’m not very good in ui development, maybe a smart XPage developer out there wants to add a nice looking interface? Just contact me!
Please, don‘t blame me for the code!
It has been adjusted, changed and extended over years.
If I would have to do it again, I guess I would make many things different.
But it is working and hopefully it can help someone in its daily job.

Changes in version 3.1:
Sending a report is now possible (in addition to creating the replicas or sending only the report).
See more details in the “Using this Application” document.
To update your existing database, just assign a template name to the downloaded database and replace the design of your existing database.
But don’t forget to sign it again…
