Before you continue

Before you continue
Instead of a Simplified Installation, you may want to decide for a full and FREE MarvelClient Essentials Installation.
A full MarvelClient Essentials Installation comes with a number of additional benefits. See the following table for more information.
In essence, a Simplified Installation only comes with MarvelClient Essentials Analyze and HCL Nomad Web Migration Roaming.
A full MarvelClient Essentials Installation also installs the MarvelClient Config database with the following advantages:
|Feature||MarvelClient Simplified Installation||MarvelClient Essentials||Licensed MarvelClient|
|Analyze your Notes clients||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|HCL Nomad Web Migration*||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|Manage HCL Nomad Mobile||No||Yes||Yes|
|Run any Windows Program||No||Yes||Yes|
|Manage Windows Registry||No||Yes||Yes|
|Deploy small files||No||Yes||Yes|
|Smartly deploy large files||No||Yes||Yes|
|Manage User Preferences||No||Yes||Yes|
|Many more options||No||No||Yes, Read more|
*) Please note that the HCL Nomad Web Migration feature is work in progress
The Simplified Installation provides you with everything needed to get started with MarvelClient Essentials and/or MarvelClient for Nomad Web fast:
Your clients REQUIRE a Simplified Installation document to find your Analyze database!
Don't forget to enable MarvelClient Essentials after creating any MarvelClient document in your Domino Directory
In line with the highlander principle, there can and must only be one document for each type of “Simplified Installation”, “Upload Client Data” and “Nomad Web Migration” in the MarvelClient view. If you ever have more than one of any of those documents (including replication conflicts), make sure you delete all but one for each. Otherwise, results are unpredictable.
Starting with the Domino Directory template in Domino 12.0.1, you will need to have the [PolicyModifier] ACL role in order to create or edit the Simplified Installation form.
If you have a problem where your Notes clients aren't uploading data to the Analyze database after setting this up, here are a few things to look at:
- If the Analyze database location in Step 2 is set to "On user's home server", check the home servers to make sure the Analyze database exists at exactly this path: 'panagenda\pmc_analyze.nsf'.
- Reset the Analyze database location on this document by clicking the "Select an existing Analyze database" button from Step 1, selecting an Analyze database on one of your servers, and resaving this document.
- Make sure your users have Author access in the Analyze database ACL, with "Create Documents" rights.
- Make sure you have enabled MarvelClient Essentials on the Domino Directory Profile in Step 3.
- Remember that this only works for Notes 12 and higher clients. If you want to enable MarvelClient Essentials on older clients, please follow the instructions for setting up a FREE MarvelClient Essentials Installation.
Additional information for existing customers
HCL Notes 12 (=non-Nomad clients) will enable/disable MarvelClient Essentials as specified in your Domino Directory Profile on each user’s respective mail server. An installed and enabled MarvelClient binary wins.
If any of the following applies to your Notes clients, they will ignore all settings from the Domino Directory:
- Your clients are HCL Nomad Mobile or HCL Nomad Web clients (that's because MarvelClient is enabled for HCL Nomad clients by default)
- Your clients have an MC_DB entry in notes.ini – regardless of whether the therein specified database exists
- Your clients do not have an MC_DB entry and panagenda\panagenda.nsf exists on a user’s mail server
- Your clients do not have an MC_DB entry and panagenda\pmc_config.nsf exists on a user’s mail server
- A client already has an actions.xml file in the MarvelClient Working Directory and the therein stored replica id does not match the public addressbook
