Extended Get-NotesDetails Function

Topics: Archive - Toolkit Extensions
Dec 1, 2014 at 11:05 AM
Find below an extended Get-NotesDetails function that returns more information about the IBM Notes installation.

The additional logic returns:
  • InstallType
    Read from the Notes.INI returns either "2" for All-Client or "6" for Client-Only"
  • Hotfix
    Returns details of the installed Fix Pack (FP) and Standard Hot Fix (SHF)
  • RunningProcesses
    Uses the PID.NBF to identify the running processes associated with Notes
To use this replace the existing function in the AppDeployToolkitExtensions.ps1.

    # Gather details of existing installation from the registry and notes.ini.
    # In addition current active Notes processes from PID.nsf
