Allowing users to take the Domino directory offline
You can use a NOTES.INI variable, $DOLSDirectoryCatalog, to set the name of a Domino directory that the user may take offline. This setting makes a part of the interface visible in the user's preferences, giving users the option of taking the server's directory catalog or Domino directory offline.

For example, if NOTES.INI contains $DolsDirectoryCatalog=dc.nsf, the user sees a new preference setting, "Include server's Name and Address Book". If the user enables this setting, the server's directory catalog will be included among the files when the user goes offline.

Taking the directory catalog rather than the Domino directory offline improves performance and saves space on the user's disk drive.
