Re: Lotus domino (5.0.3)?

We've been using Domino 5.0.x for just about a year on multiple servers.
I won't bore you with all the problems we've had w/ Domino, and with the
LDAP task of Domino... 

Domino stores all Person documents in such a way that the LDAP task
can access them. The time-frame after which LDAP "sees" modifications
differs... :-) I've submitted quite a number of "incident reports"
as to the stability and correctness of the data returned by Domino's
LDAP. Some of these have turned into SPR (which means something like
"it'll be fixed sometime")

I use the Domino LDAP task to retrieve values from the Domino Directory
(NAB) to synchronize with a bomb-proof OpenLDAP server, where we keep
our central directory.

I'd agree with Tod: my impressions on Domino's LDAP are also "mixed".
