Who is Participating?
Perhaps the pid.nbf file itself is corrupt. Try shutting down Domino, deleting (or renaming) the file, then restarting Domino. The server will create a new pid.nbf file when it starts.

What will pid.nsf holds? will it cause issues if I delete it. I am not Domnio admin so I want to make sure.
It holds the Process IDs of all Notes/Domino processes. It can be deleted while Domino is still running, but it would be better to shut down Domino first, then delete it.
