Navigating HCL Notes 14 Upgrades: A Comprehensive Guide for Conquering Challenges
Christoph Adler

In this session Christoph Adler will guide you systematically through the intricate process of mastering every challenge encountered in an HCL Notes 14 Upgrade project.
Numerous changes from 32 to 64-bit architecture necessitate careful consideration and resolution within the upgrade package itself.
This includes tasks such as uninstallation (incl. nice.exe in 32- and 64-bit), cleanup procedures (addressing old program and shareddata folders and more), migration the data folder and the very important notes.ini file, and meticulous installation practices (sorting order, command lines, parsing logs, etc.).
The session will also delve into pre-configuration essentials for new users, covering elements like the common folder, stub notes.ini, config file and others to ensure a seamless onboarding process.
Emphasizing the impact of changes in bitness and folder locations in Notes 14, the discussion will explore considerations for Anti-Virus, DEP, AppBlocker and Security Software, highlighting their potential as game-changers for end-user performance.
Having thoroughly examined the aforementioned aspects, the session will conclude with an objective and candid comparison of various Notes upgrade methods, enabling participants to make informed decisions tailored to their specific project requirements.
