How to create an INDIRECT (.IND) file for Domino on IBM i

Question

How do you create an Indirect (.IND) file to run Domino commands on IBM i?

Answer:

Domino for IBM i reads EBCDIC files, so the file must be created in EBCDIC format.

To create a shell of a file, issue the command

LOAD CONVERT -l outfile.txt

This will create a file with all databases listed (without the .nsf extension).

The control field will be correct *CRLF

The CCSID of the file will be 37 (if running US English). This is an EBCDIC CCSID.

The data will be EBCDIC.

This file can be edited using the EDTF CL command in IBM i.

You can use this as is if ".nsf" is added to each file listed in the file. Or you can FTP the data directly to this file from you PC.

When opening the FTP session specify BINARY format.
