Survival Guide for Lotus Notes and Domino Administrators - Got mine Friday

By Andrew Pollack on 03/21/2009 at 10:46 PM EDT

Mark Elliott's book came to me on Friday and I've only just had a quick look. It looks well titled -- if you're a new Notes admin this book looks well suited to getting you out of a few jams. It's really focused on the kinds of day to day things you'll need to know.

From what I can tell, this isn't an advanced "How-To" covering every feature from soup to nuts. It does provide a handy reference though. As I look through it more, I'll let you know how useful it really turns out to be.

It's not really aimed at Domino administrators, despite the title. It's for
Notes 2nd or 3rd level support people. The vast majority of the content is a
set of error messages and possible solutions (though for some, the solution is
"there is no solution"). It should be called "Survival Guide for Lotus Notes
Client Support" instead. Since I was hoping for a book about Domino
administration, I'm disappointed. If I'd been expecting a book about Notes
Client support, I'd be thrilled, because there's a lot of very useful content
on that topic.

I feel the same as Rob. Its still a nice book to have (and support), I was just
expecting something different.

Same here. I had high expectations on this book, but was disappointed it is
mainly aimed at low level support people. I was looking at a book to help me
cross certify servers, explain pass through servers and what they let us do,
... fairly heavy admin stuff.

I will post a full review on my site in the next days...

Domino System Adminstration by Rob Kirkland (published by New Riders) would
seem to set the benchmark. It obviously needs a refresh to deal with all the
goodies in 8 however.
