Lotus Domino Server file locations


The Domino Server plug-in might fail to configure on a Solaris platform [Solaris]

If errors occurs during installation, a dsapi_stderr.txt file is created in the logs directory containing...

lotus.notes.NotesException: Could not load dll for system name SUNOS
       at lotus.notes.NotesThread.load(NotesThread.java:210)
       at lotus.notes.NotesThread.<clinit>(NotesThread.java:24) java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: NnotesInitThread
       at lotus.notes.NotesThread.NnotesInitThread(Native Method)
       at lotus.notes.NotesThread.initThread(NotesThread.java:99)
       at lotus.notes.NotesThread.run(NotesThread.java:133)

Configure the WAS or Domino Server plug-in manually using the Domino Server Web administration tool...

  1. Start the Domino Server.

  2. Enter the URL for the Domino Server Web Administration site using a browser.


    Enter the administrator user name and password.

  3. Go to...

    Server-Servers | WebServer | Edit Server | Internet Protocol

  4. Add the WAS DSAPI plug-in to the DSAPI field...


    If DSAPI filter files are already specified, use a space to delimit the WAS plug-in file.

  5. Double-click Save and Close.

  6. Restart the Domino Server.


Avoiding a DSAPI filter-loading error when the Lotus Domino Server starts

On operating systems such as AIX or Linux, if the Lotus Domino Web server starts using a non-root user, we are likely to generate a DSAPI filter-loading error when the Lotus Domino Server starts:

Error loading DSAPI filter.
Filter not loaded: APP_ROOT/bin/libdomino6_http.a

To run Lotus Domino Server as a non-root user manually change the WAS bin directory permissions from 750 to 755

Change permissions on the WAS logs directory to 777.

If the Lotus Domino Server is started as root, the problem does not occur.
