The goal of this document is to help the novice ACL Dominator administrator begin by presenting a general, illustrated overview of the main features of Lotus and Domino. Sometimes new administrators do not have the necessary links or documentation on how to get started. Therefore, our goal is to present as simple as possible how to fulfill the basic duties of a Domino server administrator.
Product Overview IBM Lotus Domino is a server-based product that provides enterprise-level email, collaboration, and a custom application platform. Lotus Domino began life as Lotus Notes Server, the server component of Lotus Server Corporation’s client-server messaging technology. It can be used as an application server for Lotus Notes applications and / or as a web server. It also has an integrated database system in nsf format. (Starting with release 7, Domino server can use the system as its database.) IBM Lotus Notes is a client-server collaboration application developed and marketed by the IBM Software Group. IBM describes the software as “a built-in desktop client option for accessing business email, calendars, and applications on the IBM Lotus Domino server.”
Names.nsf. Also called the Domino Directory, which in some previous releases was called the Public Address Book or Name and Address Book, this database is automatically created by Lotus Domino on each server. Domino Directory is a directory of information about users, servers, and groups, as well as user entries that you can add. It contains server documents, configuration settings, personal documents, as well as domain, connection, and website documents. Domino Directory is also a tool that administrators use to manage the Domino system. Log.nsf.
Each Domino server has a log file that reports on all server actions and provides detailed information about the databases and users on the server. The log file is created automatically the first time the server starts. Adminmin.nsf A database of administration requests is created the first time the server starts. Requests for work performed by the administration process are stored in the database of administration requests. The status of the work performed is also stored in the database as a log for recording responses to requests.
ACL Dominator for Lotus and Domino. To perform tasks, it sends and responds to requests in the database of administration requests. Domino servers use replicas of this database to distribute requests made on one server to other servers in the domain. Some requests are performed only by the Domino Directory Administration Server. Notes.ini A file is a text file that contains many settings that both Lotus Notes and Domino work on. An accidental or incorrect change can lead to unpredictable Lotus Domino or Lotus Notes execution.
Therefore, you should only edit the file if special circumstances arise or if Lotus Support Services recommends that you do so. Mail.box. This is a special database on the server, automatically created at startup, which acts as a temporary storage for all messages sent and received by mail clients, applications and other servers. The server creates the number of databases specified in the Configuration Settings document. User login
Notes ID is one of the Notes security features and is a unique file that identifies the Notes user. The user ID is created when the Domino administrator registers the user and contains, among other things, the following: user name, certificate from certificate ID, public key, private key, password, and encryption keys.
Used in creating database systems and applications, but does not contain any documents. For example, the Names.nsf database on the server is created from the Pubnames.ntf template. Program folder. This is the directory where the Domino server or the Lotus Notes client is installed, and, as a rule, the Notes / Domino executable files along with Notes.ini are located there. This folder is specified by the user during the installation process. Data folder. This is where the data directory for the Domino server or Notes client is installed, and, as a rule, this is the folder where the Notes / Domino applications and templates are located. This folder is specified by the user during the installation process.
