Usually, you are in an environment that utilizes DNS to resolve server names and IP Addresses. Sometimes, though, you are not so lucky. In those cases, you rely on Connection Documents for your users to connect to your Domino servers.
When you change server IP Addresses, you need a method to update those Connection Documents, with as little human intervention as possible. One choice is to send an e-mail out to your users prior to doing the upgrade with a button to update the Connection documents. In this example, which was initially found on SearchDomino.com and then modified, you can send a button out to the users in an e-mail that will update their Connection Documents. If a Connection Document isn't found for the specified users, it will create it for them. At the end, because it happens so fast, there is a Messagebox notifying the users.
