Block Notes users from performing unsupported operation of delegating archive file directly

This enhancement is to request a solution that prevents Notes users delegating archives directly, for example when this action (not supported) is tried by the user, the user to get some kind of informational error message, for example : This operation is not supported!. to delegate your archive, go to your primary mail file and delegate it from there!.


Background information:   

Currently is not possible to delegate an achieve file, located in different server directly, as per reported defect SPR # DHUS9QLPZZ /APAR LO82683

Delegator Of A Mail File To Access A Different Archive Server  


The new idea NTS-I-681 has been submitted to support the possibility of Notes users delegating archives directly.  

Idea NTS-I-681

But if delegating archives directly idea NTS-I-681, cannot be implemented, consider blocking users from performing  unsupported operation of delegating archives  and instruct them that delegation has to be initiated on the Mail File directly.  


Unsupported steps:  

UserA Mail file is located in ServerA 

UserA Archive is located in ServerB 

User A delegates Archive access in Server B to User B 

AdminP request fails with error: 

Errors: Title: Path: archive\a_xxxx.nsf; Error: File does not exist 


Supported steps: 

User1 has mail file on ServerA, and archive on ServerB.  

User1 Delegates access to User2 to their primary mail file, not the archive.  

User2 now open the Archive by first opening the mail file, then clicking on the archive link. A compact -a must be run on the server first to update the archive's ACL.
