Problems stopping and starting Lotus Domino

Hi there,

Im trying to setup a Domino server under RH8 to stop and start automatically to allow the Unix agent of Veritas Backup Exec to perform daily backups.

The script that we are using to stop and start Domino server was obtained from the Red Books section of IBMs web site. It is having a strange behaviour because sometimes the server stops (via cron), the backup runs perfectly, but the server won t restart (via another cron job). Sometimes, the server stops, and the backup is done with errors (some related to open databases and stuff), then it fails to restart. The only solution here is to reboot the server. I had configured this script to act as a service, but when I issue the command "service domino start" or "stop", sometimes works and sometimes not.

Any ideas of how to solve this and how to kill all the Domino process to avoid backup failure?

I would suggest restarting the box after the backup, rather than just restarting the Domino server.

We start our domino servers automatically on boot; doing a shutdown -r will reboot the box and relaunch Domino - cleanly...

Does log.nsf give anything away about domino shutting down? Does the service shut down correctly before the backup kicks in?

Some other thoughts - are you restarting domino in the /local/dominodata directory? Rather than try 'service domino start', have you tried the full '/opt/lotus/bin/server' ? Is the server started by user 'notes'?

Hope something here is of use...

One further thing to try:

CD to the domino directory, then:

/opt/lotus/bin/server -c "quit"
