Sometimes clients can lose connectivity with the Lotus Notes Domino Server, but there's not always an obvious answer as to why it happens. Read this article to follow one of the first experiences I had with Lotus Notes on a client's machine, my now good bipolar friendly software.

Hello everyone,

I'm struggling with search of reliable backup software that supports backup of IBM Domino 9.0.1 FP4+ servers (Windows x86/x64).
Important notice - installed on physical, not virtual servers.

I will check for over 15 known (for me) backup software solutions and not a single one support Domino. Some still offers support for older Domino 8.0.x, 8.5.x. Some like Veritas Backup Exec (in older version 15) supporting up to 9.0.1 FP4 (with limitations) but in newer version completely ditch Agent for Domino and not supporting any version of Domino. Even IBM own Tivoli Storage Manager are left Domino support at old versions 8.0.x (which is more funny they upgrading support for Exchange competition). Veritas NetBackup 8.0 (form my deployments horribly expensive) has very strange mention of Domino in the documentation - they not mentioning any specific Domino version and called agent "for Lotus Notes" which name are long time ditched in favor of IBM Domino/ IBM Notes  so it was rather looks like support for some very old Domino infrastructure.

Please let me know if you know a way to backup Domino using any legitimate backup software.

p.s.
I know article about three ways how to backup Domino using standard backup software (1. "live" with high possibility of db crash on restore, 2. shutting down the server for backup, 3. semi secure - with dropping db connections). Thats really not wnat I'm looking for.

thanks in advance for any

Domino server is crashing and NSD is not generating while checked all configuration / parameters / permission. There is no logs for server crash / penic / terminated in console log. I have followed a different approach to start the server using nohup command and got the below error.

Hi, I just tried a very simple code to create a document and to create a new item. Document gets created but not the new item.Below is the code:

Sub Initialize
      Dim Session As New NotesSession
    Dim db As NotesDatabase
    Dim doc1 As NotesDocument
    Dim item As NotesItem
    Set db = session.Currentdatabase
      Set doc1 = New NotesDocument(db)
            Set item = New NotesItem _
          (doc1, "ModifiedBy", session.UserName)
            
            Call doc1.save(True, True)
End Sub

Is there Lotusscript that can replace the design of one database with another?  The source database is not a Template. The source and target databases are on different servers.

Hello. We have a server issue and need to get all of the Lotus Notes information off of the server.  The goal is to transfer to another database, i.e. Access for historical data and input live, current information into our SAP/CRM system. Lotus Notes is being used currently for customer service/field service repairs and on-site calls.  The problem is that the only person with Administrator privileges has left the company and we have no other resource available to help us with this task.  The server is old and has already failed once.  Is there a way to get all of the information into a flat file or even a spreadsheet?  

Thank you.

Hi all

Would you mind helping with this batch file I'd like run this command so it initiates on this  particular server.
Is these anything else I need to add.

My aim is to gracefully reboot a domino mail server on an automated schedule. Therefore, I was looking for a feature within domino or a set of commands I can put on a schedule to quit Domino and then reboot the physical host.

cd E:\Lotus\Domino
nserver -c "quit"
Timeout /T 600
shutdown.exe /r /f


Many thanks
