Configuring Task Default Properties

If you right-click the Tasks node in the treeview and select Properties, you can view properties that are used as the default values for all tasks.

The following property sheets are available:

Specifying Lotus and IBM Notes Credentials

To gather information for the reports, the task processors must access the databases on the Domino server. The server on which the task processors are installed is known as the task execution server.

The Notes User account that is used must have Designer-level access to the Domino server. To gather private folder information, the account must also have Trusted Server rights in the Domino Server Document of the server from which data is collected. For more information, see Required Rights and Permissions in chapter 2 of the User Guide.

Using the Lotus and IBM Notes Credentials tab, you select the User ID file for the Notes User that is used by the Task Execution Server to run gathering tasks.

MessageStats relies on the Notes client to extract the user name from the Notes ID file and to verify the password for the ID file. If you are running the MessageStats console on a machine on which Notes is not installed, you can import the Notes ID file but “??????????" is displayed instead of the user name. The selected ID file and password can still be used by the Task Execution Server.

Changing Task Credentials

The Task Credentials property page allows you to set Windows security credentials under which the gathering process runs. By default, this page displays the credentials that you defined for the Task Scheduler Service during installation.

If you change the Task Execution Server, this page automatically displays the credentials that you identified for that server. Task credentials are not validated on this property page so ensure that you enter a valid account and password.

Lotus and IBM Notes security is separate from Windows security so if you change this setting, it does not affect the Lotus and IBM Notes gathering tasks.

Changing the Schedule for a Task

The Task Schedule property page allows you to schedule your gathering tasks. You can create two types of schedules:
