Steps to add a system environment variable
1. Add the environment variable using the ADDENVVAR command. For example:
ADDENVVAR ENVVAR(QIBM_BIND_RESOLVER_FLAGS) VALUE('RES_NOCHECKNAME') LEVEL(*SYS)
2. If you are accessing the system via a 5250 or "green screen" session, sign off and sign back on to allow your job to inherit the new environment variable.
3. Start or restart your Domino server to recognize the new environment variable.
Steps to remove a system environment variable so it will no longer be used by the Domino server
1. Remove the environment variable using the RMVENVVAR command. For example:
RMVENVVAR ENVVAR(Java_Home) LEVEL(*SYS)
2. If you are accessing the system via a 5250 or "green screen" session, sign off and sign back on to allow your job to start without the new environment variable in effect.
3. Start or restart your Domino server to remove the environment variable.
Viewing the environment variables being used by the Domino server
The nsd tool can be used to see which environment variables are currently in use by the Domino server.
1. Access the Domino console and enter the following command:
2. A nsd file will be created in the IBM_TECHNICAL_SUPPORT directory. To view the file, from a 5250 or "green screen" session enter the following commands:
Take option 15 next to your Domino server.
Locate the nsd you just created and take option 5 to view the file.
3. Review the environment variable listing in the nsd:
Enter the word Environment (case-sensitive) into the Control field and press F16 to search.
The list of environment variables will be listed under the "<@@ Environment -> User Environment @@>" heading
<@@ Environment -> User Environment @@>

Note: All environment variables in use by the server will be in this list, not just system environment variables. This list should be able to assist in determining if any new entries have been added or removed.
