Suppose you had a maintenance period during which you took the server off line and ran "Compact" so that the directory and other busy files got compacted. It's not a bad idea once every decade or two, right? Now, suppose you set the flag for "Do not support a specialized response hierarchy" when you did this. What do you suppose would happen?
Well looking at the databases and views you'd find no differences when you were done. All your response documents would be where they go and behave normally.
HOWEVER -- some things break. For example - if you do that on the Domino Directory, the server can no longer find any "Web Site Rules" -- redirection, security, response headers, etc. -- which are stored as response documents to the Web Site configuration document. Oh, if you check your directory they'll still be there. YOU can see them. They just won't work any more because the server doesn't see them.
You see that setting is what allows programs to access responses without having to look at a view to get them. It's invisible to you and me.
How did I run across this you ask? I just spent the last 4 or 5 hours trying to figure out why some web redirects weren't working any more.
