About this update method

The preconfigured CS4N application V2.11.0 (NSF) supplied in the update package is imported onto your Domino server and the customer-specific settings are subsequently adjusted. The update description is for the update from version < 2.10.1 to 2.11.0.

Update of CS4N versions < 2.10

When updating older versions of CS4N (<2.10), check all configuration settings for completeness and add the missing settings if necessary.


  1. Create a local Notes copy (File - Application - New copy...) of the productive CS4N application (backup copy).
  2. Deletion of the old productive Cryptshare for Notes version.
  3. Stop the Domino server and store the Cryptshare4Notes-2.11.0.jar file on the server and delete the old Cryptshare4Notes-xxxx.jar file.
  4. Copy new CS4N version 2.10.1 (Cryptshare.nsf) from the update package to the Domino server.
  5. If necessary, adjust the name of the Cryptshare application in the Domino server rules.
  6. Start the Domino Server.
  7. Import the CS4N configuration, the status documents and the ACL settings from the previously created backup.
  8. Create a new file.
  9. Configure new CS4N settings.
  10. Delete local backup copy.


  • The CS4N version 2.11.0 is compatible with Domino Server version 9.0.1 FP8 running the Java version 1.8.0 (Compatibility table).
  • The backup data import also works for versions < 2.10.0. However, please check all configuration settings for completeness after the import, as a number of new setting options have been added with version 2.10.0 and higher.

Update Checklist

This checklist is intended as a guide for the administrator to update the "Cryptshare for Notes" (CS4N) applications to version 2.11.0 step by step.

Cryptshare for Notes application (cryptshare.nsf)

  • Unzip the ZIP file (update package) and sign the Notes templates (* .ntf) and the application (* .nsf).
  • Create a local backup copy (Notes menu: "File -> Application -> New copy...") of the currently productive CS4N application.
  • Delete the current productive CS4N application.
  • Stop the Domino server on which Cryptshare for Notes is running to perform the following three steps:

    • Delete the file Cryptshare4Notes-<Version>.jar from the <Domino program directory>/jvm/lib/ext

    • Copy the file Cryptshare4Notes-V2.11.0.jar from the update package into the <Domino program directory>/jvm/lib/ext directory.

    • Copy (by operating system) the new CS4N application V2.11.0 (Cryptshare.nsf) to the Domino Server in the same location from which you deleted the old CS4N version in the previous step. Give this copy the same file name as the previously deleted CS4N application.
  • Start the Domino Server
  • In the Notes Administrator Client, perform a fixup and compact with the default settings on the new CS4N application.
  • Start the new CS4N application.
  • Start the data import to apply the configuration settings of the previously saved CS4N application.
    (Notes menu: Actions → Cryptshare for Notes → Data import from an external CS4N application ... ")
    Or alternatively from the Cryptshare for Notes configuration with the button: Actions → Data import from an external CS4N application ...

    Select the options: Apply CS4N configuration (without e-mail notification) settings, Import status document and Apply ACL (Access Control List) and confirm with OK.

    In the next dialog, select the previously saved CS4N application to start the import.

  • After the import, open the CS4N configuration and check the following CS4N settings:
  • Finally, sign all CS4N applications again for security.
