Installing Sametime 7 to a Domino server with a “custom” data-directory

After installing Sametime 7 at a customer running Domino 7.0 server I noticed that a data-directory had been created under the binary directory. The customer has mapped the data-directory onto a separate disk-system using a notes.ini setting.

All the files appeared to have been copied to the correct directories below the data-directory also so the damage wasn’t too severe. Only the help help database in the datahelp-database wasn’t copied correctly. Wierd. I have never experienced that before.

In the screenshot below the window in the back is the “real” data-directory and the circled data-directory on the windows in front is the one the Sametime installation created.
