We do an annual Disaster Recovery test. One of our Domino servers is part of this test.
After installation of the OS and other apps, Domino 9.0.1 is installed as well as the FixPack cyurrently on the production server.
We then install Backup Exec and restore "Lotus Notes Databases" from tape in \Data folder. We also restore the notes.ini
We do not restore any of the program files.
Since we upgraded to Win2008R2 and Domino 9.x about 3 years ago, when the server is started, an error appears in the console:
"Error connecting to server MyNotesServer/Domain: Remote system no longer responding" which means it can't connect to itself.
I thought I had fixed this last year with by adding DNSServer= to the notes.ini as well as adding the ip address and corresponding dns address to the hosts file.
However, last week, during the test, the error came up again, and this time I just let the server run as I searched Google again.
The error continuously repeated in the console for exactly 6 minutes and then it moves on and the server returns to normal.
I have no idea why it fixed itself, nor why it appears in the first place.
I welcome any suggestions (although I won't be able to test until next year).
