Domino R5 Linux Configuration

I have just finished installing Domino R5 on a RedHat Linux server. The installation went without a hitch (I followed the steps included in the IBM RedBook for installing and configuring a Domino server). When I try to configure the Domino server:
I log in a the user I created itsodomino
I run the web server setup
     cd /opt/lotus/notesdata
     /opt/lotus/bin/http httpsetup

I access the web server with my browser:
http://localhost:8081

I set all the appropriate parameters
(I notice when I am on the 3 page of 4 [selecting ports] TCP/IP is not listed on the lefthand side -> from the screen shots, it looks as though there should be something there, reguardless, I select use all ports).

When I click finish, the Domino Http server responds with:
Addin: Agent 'ExitSetup' error message: Error crerating product object

I have check the permissions for the folders, user itsodomino has RWE for the entire /opt/lotus/notesdata directory [I even opened the directory so anyone could write to that folder, still no go.

I would really like to get this server running so any help from you guys would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Why are you installing R5 ?  Why don't you just use R6 ?  The information for R6 is better, and installing it is easier.  I've got a guideline for installing R5 on Linux (I created some years ago), but I don't remember anything about your specific error.  If you want it, I can mail it to you.

cheers,

I have many instructions sets, however, since yours might differ [in case they do] I would like to check out anything you have. As for installing R5 instead of R6, it is simply a matter of cost. The upgrade path for the product R5 is good and we can use incrimental installers only through major releases (5.0.11), then we need to purchase an upgrade, we did not get the support package. We are moving to the Linux platform as a cost savings (to avoid all the CAL's we would need to purchase to move to Win2000). We have experienced very little problems with R5, not enough to justify the cost of moving to R6.

I checked my documentation, it is in Dutch, but you can still have it , if you want :-)

Drop me an email, and I'll send it.

=) Dont think so - I have just uninstalled and re-installed it the wholw shooting match, and it is trhowing the same error. We are beginning to think it is a problem with running Redhat ES3. I am going to try and inc upgrade to 5.0.12 and see if it helps.

based on that same suggestion from a gent at Lotus 911 we made sure that iptables & ip6tables were both off, deleted the works and re-installed with no luck (coment above). As for installing the 5.0.12, I cant seem to get the installer to run.

At least I think I disabled the iptables, (I selected System Settings -> Server Setting -> Services) and unchecked the iptables. is there another place I should check to see if it is getting loaded at boot?

Also check that ipchains is not running ....

The actual final solution was:

Ensure iptables is not running, and ensure the following Environment Variable is set before running Domino:

LANG=C
export LANG

For some reason RedHat (lloks like 8.0 and above to my ES3 server) is not letting the .bash_profile override this variable. After making changes to my .bash_profile, the system ignored it and continued setting LANG=eng_XXXXX something else. So I ended up writing a short script to:

#!/bin/bash
LANG=C
export LANG
cd /opt/lotus/notesdata
/opt/lotus/bin/server

---- This also fixes the problem with having no TCP/IP to select in the ports. The second thing the http server should do after failing to create the object is probe the ports. If it fails to create the object, then it also fails to probe the ports. If your in this loop, do the following:

run your http server
use the web browser to access
change EditDocument to DeleteDocument
After the document is deleted, close and reopen your web browser and it should work fine.

Yes, I seem to remember this (the language setting).  RH 8.0 sucks, btw :-)

Anyway , the solutions you find yourself , are the best :-)

A new TA has been added to EE: Lotus Domino Admin (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Lotus_Domino_Admin/).

Since it's still rather empty we're looking for content for this TA. This should offer visitors a better chanche of finding answers to their questions.

This question, though not posted in a wrong TA, was a typical Lotus Domino Admin question. Therefore I'm moving it from Lotus Notes/Domino TA to Lotus Domino Admin TA.

Sorry for the delay. I had to wait for an index to get fixed.
