How can I synchronize my Lotus Notes contacts on the Lotus Domino server?

Answer:

Lotus Notes contacts are stored locally on the user’s hard drive (.nsf file). In order to migrate them, each user must have synchronized their personal address book on the Lotus Domino server before performing a migration (or a Full/Delta Pass).

For Lotus Notes 8+ - 9.0.1

Note: Lotus Notes versions after 9.0.1 are not supported.

Each user must proceed with the following on their own machine.

To synchronize contacts manually:

  1. Start the Lotus Notes client and open its session.
  2. From the File menu, select Preferences.
  3. Under the Contacts section, checkmark Enable "Synchronize Contacts" on the Replication and Sync tab.
