Issues that are fixed in this update
Fixed issues in the Lotus Domino connector
Issue 1You cannot create new contact objects in the primary address book.
Issue 2When a string contains a comma, the connector considers the attribute as a multivalued attribute. This causes an "exported-change-not-reimported" warning message when you confirm the import.
Issue 3The connector removes leading and trailing spaces when strings are exported. This causes an "exported-change-not-reimported" warning message when you confirm the import.
Issue 4If the export type is set to Append, the connector throws a NullReferenceException message on certain kinds of data.
Issue 5If the password that is supplied to the connector is empty, such as when you update a schema or when you import a server configuration, the Lotus Notes client stops responding. After this update is installed, the connector protects you from this situation by not permitting any operations against Lotus Notes unless there is a password available to the connector.
