How can I reconfigure my additional Domino Server on AIX 5l ?
The problem is that the configuration was passed by assigning no server.id in the specified box.

Thanks in advance

Delete your notes.ini in the notes directory pertaining to the additional domino server. This should ask you for new configuration.

Or, in the notes.ini add the ServerKeyFileName parameter to point to the path of server.id file

Hello Ivan,

you have no problems, relay :-)

You have the option to create the server.id in advance with the Administrator client, but this is only an option.
If you do not use this option, then does the setup shell script produce a server.id for you and enter its correct name into new servers notes.ini

Look for this.

So long,

uups :-)

this was wrong. of corse does the setup shell script have no certifiers for your additional servers. It can create the server.id only for the first server in the organization because the script creates also the certifier for this organization.

So you have to rerun the complete setup script and use the same notes/data directory name as in first run of setup for this second server. Only problem is that internal counter is increased for the partition count. But this counter was in use for R4.x server. The partition under R5 are named with their notesdata directory names replacing the slashes with dots.
In either cases you cane rerun the setup without harm. You can remove the actualy content of notes/date (by renaming the directory) or overwrite the previously created directory content. Better option is to make the notes data directory empty, because the setup shell script is looking for names.nsf and other stuff already pressent. If present, then a upgrade is assumed.

Good luck,
zvonko

Hello,
I have a new problem here. I have restarted whole installation of the Lotus Domino Server and backup notes.ini file and websetup.nsf db.
The problem is that the connection with first Domino server can't be done.
I can ping my first server and I have regitered server.id for my new server.
Can anybody help me what parameters should I put in the Address book Server and is it possible to put only IP address of the destionation server?

Thanks in advance

Hello Ivan,

I assume you are asking what to do here:
http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redbooks/SG244694/css/SG244694_95.html

OK, I am doing this on a Unix machine OS/390. In this server name field labeled "GetAddressBookFrom" you can only enter a full hierarchical Notes server name (not a host name or ip address). You have to have a hosts file on this Unix tcpip stack. Therein you can enter the server name of the first server with its ip address.
If your installation server does not resolve this Notes primary server name to an address, then does the installation show the same picture again with an additional field where you can enter either IP address or internet host name.

Give it a try.

It is not working.
I suppose that the problem is in the network DNS.
My network works in Workgroup not in a Domain so AIX server can not find my first server from the field "GetAddressBookFrom" which is "MyFirstServer/TEST".
I have put the line in my "/etc/hosts" for my first server IP and I can ping my first server with "ping MyFirstServre/TEST".
Proccess fails on the 20% of the configuration and it says "Connection can't be resume" on the console error message.

Can I install this server as the First server with my primary cert, admin.id and my server.id for the new server and than somehow to copy my old names.nsf to be for my new server?

Thanks again for your responses.

Installing a second "first" server and afterwards changing the address book and other parts is not a good idea.
I am looking for more documentation, but meanwhile do a simple test: before starting the next recreation of this second server place by ftp a copy of first servers names.nsf into this second servers data directory. Place also the server.id file into data directory. I hope installation is taking the present names.nsf and use it correctly.

I will get back when I have more infos for you.

So long,

PS: Instead of using server name use its ip address
