Notes Client Side Troubleshooting
DCC is a Notes client process that synchronizes certain information between Notes clients and Domino servers. The DCC executable, ndyncfg.exe, is located in the Notes client program directory. Dynamic Client Configuration runs when the user authenticates with their home server, and either their Person document has been modified, or their assigned Desktop Policy has been modified since the last authentication. DCC is designed as a push mechanism only from the server to the client. The DCC updates settings on the user's workstation based on the current settings in the user's Person document and any Desktop Policies that are in place. DCC runs when the client is first launched or is restarted and the user opens a database on the home mail server specified in the location document.
You can verify if DCC has run by checking the Miscellaneous Events of your local log.nsf
