Error while trying to read domino directory (lotus notes)


we are facing a problem while trying to get a connection from idm to lotus notes.

The problem occurs at the jobs to read something out of the domino directory. (for example “load certifiers from Notes” or “System load”).

The following error message appears in the job log:

Script error: Automation error The object invoked has disconnected from its clients. :Function - OpenListNotes:Param

I used the uWarning-function to localize the line where the error occurs, it seems to be the following line:

ret = NotesDB.DbOpen(vbNullString, Server, Database)

MXVBNotes.dll is registered.

While registering MXNotes.dll an error occurs: The module “MXNotes.dll” failed to load. (could this be the reason for the issue? )

(the dll-files are located in the windows folder)

Does anyone have an idea how to solve the problem?

Thanks & Regards

    Hi Benjamin,

    What version of IDM are you using? Older versions / SPs of IDM have many Lotus Notes issues. Upgrading to 7.2 SP 10 or IDM8.0 will probably help you the most as the VBScripts are retired in favor of a Java based architecture.

    Also have you tried checking the Error itself on Google? I know it's probably not the answer that you want to hear 😊 but most of the IDM/Notes issues are Windows and VBScript interface based.

      I have found a workaround.

      This works fine for me.

      I use the old MXNOTES.DLL and MXVBNOTES.DLL from the IdM Version 7.10 SP6.

      Windows Runtime Engine has 7.2 SP10 and everything is running good.

      Best Regards
