About the Create Task Wizard

You create tasks to collect data from a Domino database. The initial gathering task provides immediate information about your Domino environment.

An initial gathering involves creating a Default Gathering for Lotus and IBM Notes task. Typically you run the Default gathering at the domain level. This task is a composite task that initiates the following individual gatherings in the order of their defined dependencies:

If you create a Default Gathering for Lotus and IBM Notes task at the server level, you must run the individual Lotus and IBM Notes Users gathering at the domain level.

For more information about gathering task dependencies, see Gathering Task Dependencies .

To optimize collection performance, you can create multiple tasks to collect different information on different schedules.

The following tasks can be run at the Domino domain level:

The following tasks can be run at the Domino server level:

The Create Task Wizard wizard consists of base pages and any additional pages that are specific to the type of gathering task you are creating. For example, to create and schedule a Default Gathering for Lotus and IBM Notes gathering task, you use the wizard pages to perform the following actions:

Specifying Lotus and IBM Notes Credentials

To gather information for the reports, the task processors must access the databases on the Domino server. The Notes User account that is used must have Designer-level access to the Domino server.

Using the Lotus and IBM Notes Credentials dialog, 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.

Click Import ID File and browse to the Notes User ID file you want.

Click Next.

Selecting the Mailbox Content Data

The Lotus and IBM Notes Mailbox Content gathering task collects information about mail file content such as encrypted messages and messages that contain links and hotspots. You can also collect information about any shared folders and any private folders that exist in each mail file.

If you select a Lotus and IBM Notes Mailbox Content gathering template, you can select the type of content data that you want to collect. By collecting only the data that you want, you can manage server load and the gathering task performance.
