This error message can be seen after upgrading from Sametime 7.5 to 8.0.x.
Reason 1 :
Directory Assistance (da.nsf) is set using local (current Sametime) server's replicas of secondary directories. This seems particularly true if using LDAP directory services rather than native Domino directory services.
Instead set da,nsf the primary replicas to be used to point another Domino server.
The sametime.ini is missing a Java VM argument part of the [Policy] line.
See the proper line below:
. . .
POLICY_VM_ARGS=-Xmx128m -Xms128m -Xgcpolicy:optavgpause
. . .
This is supposedly correct w/ new Sametime 8.0.x installs, but seems to persist with 7.5 upgrades to 8.0.x.
There are a couple folks who say to append another argument to Java to kill the services quicker, but this causes other issues.
You are running DAOS. DAOS and Sametime on the same server are NOT compatible.
Disable the DAOS services. We had one client who also have to remove the DAOS line rather than just leaving the parameter = 0.
In addition, do NOT disable the policy task in Services. This will just cause parts of Sametime to no longer work.
