How to automatically start Domino when starting the Linux OS


How do you automatically start a Lotus® Domino® server when starting the Linux® operating system?


To do this, follow these steps:
1. Copy the script below to a file named /etc/init.d/domino

# DOM_HOME is the variable that tells the script where the Domino Data
# DOM_USER is the Linux account used to run the Domino 6 server
# DOM_PROG is the location of the Domino executables
echo -n Starting domino:
if [ -f $DOM_HOME/.jsc_lock ]; then
rm $DOM_HOME/.jsc_lock
/bin/su - notes -c "LD_PRELOAD=/lib/;export
LD_PRELOAD;$DOM_PROG/server -jc -c" > /dev/null 2>&1 &
return 0
stop() {
echo -n Stopping domino:
/bin/su - notes -c "$DOM_PROG/server -q"
return 0
case $1 in
echo Usage: domino {start|stop}
exit 1
2. Give execute permission to the file by using the command:
    chmod +x domino
3. Link the file to start and stop as linux startup service, as follows:
    from /etc/rc0.d ln -s /etc/init.d/domino K10domino from /etc/rc2.d ln -s /etc/init.d/domino S99domino from /etc/rc3.d ln -s /etc/init.d/domino S99domino

3. Reboot the server to see the results.
