Unlocking and locking Places during an upgrade using an xml

During an upgrade from Quickr on Domino 8.5.1 to 8.5.3 FP37 I noticed that the customer had a large amount of locked Places. I didn’t want to lock them after the upgrade manually so a little Googling found some old wikis detailing the upgrade from QuickPlace to Quickr which contained the following commands.

The following commands allow you to write to xml the locked Places and then after the upgrade use that same xml to lock the Places.

load qptool report -q [PlaceIsLocked]=1 -o qptool.lockedplaces.xml
Provides a report of the locked places

load qptool lock -i qptool.lockedplaces.xml
locks the places listed in the xml
