Change Control & Management for Domino Servers

What's the fastest way to solve a computer problem?
Find out what changed.

The Change Manager for Domino provides Change Control, Change Management and Change Reporting for Domino Server configuration and security settings (as well as Groups, Registry Keys, ACLs, Database Designs, Log Entries, User Certification, User Sessions and other Directory modifications), and includes tools for Benchmarking, INI comparisons, Snapshots and Directory validation.

This means (for example), no unexplained Group changes in the Directory, changes to important elements like Server Configurations can be controlled, and the use of 'all-powerful' features - like Full Access Administration - can be logged.

It also assists with Problem Solving and Quality Assurance, as well as ITIL/SOX/Auditing compliance, especially if Domino Servers in your environment are maintained by multiple Administrators.

The Change Manager enhances the security of your Domino environment by applying optional Change Control to specified configuration elements. For example, if an Administrator wants to modify a Security Group, another Administrator can approve the change before it's implemented. They can also decline it, return it for more information etc. Even if you choose not to enforce Change Control, changes are logged, and relevant staff can be alerted in real-time and revert changes before problems occur.

Increased change visibility is also provided via scheduled reporting, which allows interested parties to be notified of and retain a record of all changes performed.

Regular snapshots can be taken for auditing compliance, and a range of tools allow the Administrator to easily monitor the Domino environment. For example, you can verify that the Directory is exactly the same on all Servers.

Servers can be monitored via SMTP, and Server Availability Monitoring checks your Servers every minute, alerting you to any availability issues and logging both uptime and downtime.
