Option to stop document level changes/updates replication

Changes/updates to person and group documents should not be replicated to other servers.

When we set up Domino directory as configuration directory on the server, documents for people and groups are not visible.

Currently, there is no option for stopping document level changes/updates replication.

There should be a feature or an option for the administrator to stop document level changes/updates replication

    If we use the replication formula as below, all "Person" & "group" type documents will be deleted from the database on subsequent replication.

    SELECT Type ! = "Person" & Type ! = "Group"

    The requirement is that existing documents should not be deleted from the database and new updates should not be received.

    Especially this kind of requirement is used during the server migration process while replicating names.nsf with dummy server created during the migration process.

    When below formula is set on destination Domino server Then person or group Documents are getting deleted from Destination server after replication with source server.

    However requirement here from customer is not to remove/delete person or group on the replica but, any changes/updates made on Person and Group documents should not replicate from source server to destination server where replication formula has been added.


    SELECT Type ! = "Person" & Type ! = "Group"

    You can set up a replication formula to prevent the replication of specific documents.
