Read an Excerpt

Chapter 1: Domino Systems and Infrastructure

Your Domino environment rests on the Notes and Domino systems and infrastructure that you (or someone else) have built. One of your main tasks as an administrator is monitoring and maintaining the systems; the applications, mail, and other elements cannot function without this layer. Monitoring consists of using events, statistics, logs, and other tools to track how the system is performing. Maintenance consists of making changes as necessary in order to ensure that the system continues to perform correctly. Each of the chapters in Section 1 covers an aspect of monitoring and maintaining Domino servers and users. In this case, we start at the bottom layer of the Domino infrastructure, with the systems, server, and infrastructure.

Administration Tools

Much of the monitoring and maintenance that is described in this chapter, as well as in the next four chapters, revolves around using the tools that are provided in Domino and in the Administration client to perform the necessary tasks to keep the systems, servers, and clients running and connected. Many of these tools will be mentioned again in the rest of Section 1 and throughout this book. As you examine each of these tools, think about what is required to use them and how they can help with troubleshooting problems with the Domino system.

Domino Administrator

Domino Administrator gives an administrator access to a great deal of information about a server and domain. You also gain access to many of the tools that are required to administer the servers and systems.
People and Groups
To maintain users, groups, and mail-in databases or resources, use the People and Groups tab, as shown in Figure 1-1. In addition to editing users and groups, renaming and re-certifying users, and registering new users, the views in this tab give you access to user setup profiles and to the Move Mail File action. These options are discussed in greater detail in Chapter 3, "Domino Directories, Users, and Groups."
The Files tab gives you the capability to open and view any database or template and to view any type of file in the data directory and subdirectories. The tools that are included on the Files tab include the Disk Space tools, as shown in Figure 1-2, which show the amount of used and free disk space on each drive in the selected machine.

Use the Folder tools to create new folders in the data directory structure, to create and update directory links, and to delete folders. The Database tools, which are shown in Figure 1-3, enable you to perform the following tasks:

  • Managing the Access Control List (ACL) of the database(s), if you have Manager access to the database
  • Creating new replicas of a selected database(s), if your name is in the Create Replica Databases field of the server document
  • Running the Compact task on a database(s), including modifiers such as maintaining the R4 structure of a database, or archiving a database
  • Creating a full-text index for a databases)
  • Enabling or disabling multi-database indexing for a database(s)
  • Enabling or disabling the advanced database properties for a database(s)
  • Configuring quotas and warning thresholds on a database(s)
  • Moving a database(s) to another server by using the Administration Process (AdminP)
  • Signing design elements in a database(s) for design-element protection
  • Enabling or disabling replication for a database(s)
  • Running the Fixup task against a database(s), including modifiers such as running Fixup on transaction-logged databases, or running a Fixup that excludes views
  • Maintaining databases in clusters (refer to Chapter 2, "Advanced Domino and Web Servers," for more information)
  • Running a database analysis in order to monitor changes to the database design, data, access control, and replication settings
  • Searching a database for a document note by either note ID or Universal Note ID (UNID)
Refer to Chapter 5, "Domino Applications and Replication," for more details concerning many of these Database tools.
The Server tab is broken into four additional tabs: Status, Analysis, Monitoring, and Statistics.

Status Tab Use the Status tab to monitor server tasks. (You could receive the same information by using the SHOW TASKS command at a server console.) The Tasks list, as shown in Figure 1-4, shows the ports and tasks that are running on the server and what those tasks are currently doing. You can also start and stop tasks and ports from this list, as well as run the TELL command against certain tasks. These features can be useful for obtaining information, such as telling the HTTP task to show file access information or all users with HTTP sessions, or telling the Agent Manager to show the scheduled agents. Use the Start and Stop port commands to stop and restart a port when troubleshooting the connectivity over a specific port or when making changes to the port configuration.

The bottom pane of the Status tab shows the users who are currently connected to the server and what databases they have open. (You could also obtain this information by using the SHOW USERS command at a server console.) You can drop users or send broadcast messages to them by right-clicking and using the Drop or Broadcast commands. These commands are also available from the User tools.

You also have access to the Server tools. Use these tools to accomplish the following tasks:

  • Forcing a manual replication between the current server and another server, using any style and on all databases or a selected database. For more details about replication, refer to Chapter 5, "Domino Applications and Replication."
  • Forcing mail to route manually between the current server and the selected server. For more information about mail routing, refer to Chapter 4, "Domino Messaging."
  • Configuring ports by using the Setup Ports tool. Ports that are enabled on the server are listed in the Communication Ports list with a check mark. You can delete, rename, or move those ports in the list. Ports that are higher in the list will be used for communication first. When you select a port, the dialog box lists the driver, gives you the opportunity to enable or disable the port, and gives you the opportunity to encrypt all of the data that goes over that port. In addition, many of the ports have options that are available from a button on the dialog box. You can enable ports that are not currently enabled, although you will usually have to restart the server in order for new ports and other changes to take effect. Finally, you can create new ports, if necessary, by using the New button. Use the New Port dialog box to select a name and driver for any new ports.
  • Use the Shutdown tool to stop the server remotely. This action shuts down the entire server.
Also available from the Status tab is the Console button, which displays the remote console as shown in Figure 1-5. Use the console to type commands that you want to run on the server. Your name (or a group that contains your name) must be in the...

    Great book to buy

    Reading this book helped me pass both my 190-520 and 190-521 tests. The material covered gets right to the point.
