Reset_Time_Interval

Restart_Time_Action= Value of 1 indicates that restarting the Domino server is

canceled and a message indicating this is written to the file NOTES.INI. If

Restart_Time_Action= is set any value other than 1, the OS time is used.

Reset_Time_Interval= Value in seconds of the maximum time change allowed.

Note You can remove the value in the setting Last_Domino_Time, to force the

Domino server to restart without failure after an extended amount of time

regardless of the value in the Restart_Time_Action setting.

While the Domino server is shut down, Domino uses the NOTES.INI setting

Last_Domino_Time to control forward time changes to the system clock. The

previous internal Domino time is saved in Last_Domino_Time when the Domino

server shuts down, when the server is successfully restarted and when the OS

time refreshes the internal Domino time.

You can use the NOTES.INI setting Restart_Time_Interval to specify a restart

time interval for the Domino server. When the Domino server restarts, if the

difference between the OS time and the time stored in Last_Domino_Time exceeds

the value in the NOTES.INI setting Restart_Time_Interval, one of the following

occurs according to the settings in the NOTES.INI file:

If Restart_Time_Action=1, restarting the Domino server is canceled, and a

message is written to the NOTES.INI file. If Restart_Time_Action= is set to any

value other than 1, the OS time is used.

If any of the three NOTES.INI settings Last_Domino_Time, Restart_Time_Interval,

or Restart_Time_Action are not set in the NOTES.INI file, the internal Domino

time is reset to the OS time.

If Restart_Time_Action= and Restart_Time_Interval= have both been set in the

NOTES.INI file, and if the Domino server is down for a period of time greater

than the setting in Restart_Time_Interval, the Domino server does not restart.

While the Domino server is running, the internal Domino time is reset from the

OS time at regular intervals. The server process issues a call to reset the

internal Domino time every five minutes but other processes may also issue

calls to reset the internal Domino time as well. Use the NOTES.INI setting,

Reset_Time_Interval, to designate a maximum time interval other than the

default of five minutes. Specify the time interval in seconds. The

Reset_Time_Interval setting is checked when Domino attempts to reset the

internal Domino time to the OS time. If the internal Domino time exceeds the

Reset_Time_Interval, the OS time is not reset. For example, if the

Reset_Time_Interval=600 (10 minutes), and the internal Domino time is 1:34

P.M., and the OS time is 1:12 P.M., issuing a Set SystemTime command would not

readjust the internal Domino time.

Forcing internal domino time to reset to OS time

If the OS time exceeds the internal Domino time, you can use the server console

command Set SystemTime to force the internal Domino time to be reset to the OS

time regardless of the value of the NOTES.INI setting Reset_Time_Interval.

For more information about the server command, Set SystemTime, see the topic

Set SystemTime.
