  • Modified Date:
  • Article ID:000013664


While manually enabling multiple Domino Mailboxes for archiving, if the enable wizard encounters an error with enabling a Mailbox, attempting to continue processing the remaining Mailboxes will fail on each subsequent Mailbox.

Error Message

An error similar to the following will initially occur while enabling Mailboxes:

Error:  The operation is not authorized with the configured ID file.

 After clicking the 'OK' button the following prompt will occur:

Do you wish to continue to process any remaining mailboxes?

After choosing 'Yes' this second error will occur:

Error:  Application exception.

 If 'Yes' is continually selected after each additional error the second error 'Application exception' will occur for each Mailbox left in the list of Mailboxes to enable.

A DTrace of the 'AdminService' and 'mmc' will show the following error:

Any issue that prevents one of the Mailboxes from being enabled will cause the issue.


  1. Choose 'No' to the question 'Do you wish to continue to process any remaining mailboxes?'
  2. Select 'Close', taking note of the first Mailbox that had the issue
  3. Open the 'Enable Mailboxes' wizard again and select Mailboxes to enable for archiving again, ensuring that the problem Mailbox is not selected

Note: Automatically enabling mailboxes for archiving works past the problem mailbox without issue.
