You can not ( rather should not ) run the Admin client on a server, it needs to be on a workstation.

I hope this helps !

You will need to make sure that you have the Domain certificate ( Id.file ) on yout workstation to certify ( create ) new users, or set up a CA.

Sorry, I disagree. There's nothing wrong with installing the Admin client on a server, since both (Notes and Domino) data-trees are completely separate in R7. What's imperative is that the Domino server should be opened by the Admin using TCP/IP. Local are the databases local to the client, so don't try to open files in the Domino data-tree.

By the way, which Admin client are you referring to? Is it the Notes Admin client, or is it the Java-based one?
Do you run the server in the foreground or in the background?
