obsolete notes.ini in Domino 8 (make you Domino 8 migration also clean-up project)

During all migration projects people implement new things, which is a good practice.
but every migration project is an opportunity to make environment clean. Archive unused databases, thus decreasing amount of database you need to retest,
and also make configuration more understandable and readable.

IBM has published technote, absolete notes.ini parameters in release 8, and links to obsolete links in release 6 and 7.

take a look, may be you are usings something that is obsolete now, so you have to find what changed.

Question
What notes.ini variables have become obsolete in Lotus® Domino® 7, and where are they documented?
 
Answer
The "Obsolete NOTES.INI variables" table can be found in the Domino 7.x Release Notes. (By Product -> Domino Server -> About this release -> Backward compatibility -> Obsolete NOTES.INI variables.) For your convenience, the table has been provided below.
Note:
Although Domino 7 ignores most obsolete settings, removing or commenting out obsolete settings is recommended. You can use a text editor to edit the notes.ini.


Obsolete NOTES.INI variables

The NOTES.INI variables listed below have been made obsolete; either because UI settings exist to enable the functionality or because the functionality is longer required:



Variable Reason for obsolescence
LDAPAddress In Domino 5.0.1a and subsequent releases, including the Lotus Domino 6 release and later, the LDAPAddress NOTES.INI variable is ignored. For Domino R5 servers and later, bind a Notes TCP port to a specific address, and then have the LDAP service use the Notes port.
namelookup_trust_dircat Functionality enabled by the Directory Information setting "Trust the server based condensed directory catalog for authentication with internet protocols" in the Server document of the Domino Directory server.

Question
What are the obsolete notes.ini parameters for Lotus Notes/Domino® 6.5?
 
Cause
With updates to the Domino Directory and new functionality added to Lotus Notes/Domino 6, some notes.ini settings have become obsolete.

Lotus Notes/Domino 6 ignores most obsolete settings. However, removing or commenting out obsolete settings is recommended. You can use a text editor to edit the notes.ini file.
 
Answer

This information is taken from the Domino Administrator Help Database version 6.5. It is also located in the 6.5 Release Notes.

The following table lists Lotus Notes/Domino versions 4.6 and 5 notes.ini settings that are either no longer supported or that no longer require you to manually set their values in Lotus Notes/Domino 6.
