If you have run Lotus Domino for a while, been through upgrades, and over the top installs, you may find yourself with several old or duplicated Domino Services. (It's possible you may not have one either).
To clean up your services, rename, or delete them, there is no need to completely reinstall your Domino server.
** It is also worth noting that Lotus has changed the default naming convention of the Domino service starting in 7.0.3 to contain the drive letter.
For example in 7.0.3 or 8 your service will be named
Lotus Domino Server (CLotusDominodata)
Lotus Domino Server (lotusDominodata)
To Uninstall Domino as a service:
1. Click on Start -> Settings -> Control Panel. Double-click Administrative Tools and then double-click on Services.
2. Find Domino in the list of services. By default it will be "Lotus Domino Server (lotusdominodata)".
3. Open a Command Prompt window by selecting Start -> Run, type cmd, and press Enter.
4. Go to the Domino program directory.
5. Issue the following command:
ntsvinst -d -t"Lotus Domino Server (lotusdominodata)"
Note: There is no space between -t and the first quotation mark. The service name between the quotes is not case sensitive.
6. Refresh the Services window to confirm the service is no longer listed.
To reinstall Domino as a service:
1. Open a Command Prompt window by selecting Start -> Run, type cmd, and press Enter.
2. Issue the following command:
ntsvinst -c -t"Lotus Domino Server (Clotusdominodata)" -iC:\Lotus\Domino\notes.ini"
Note: There is no space between -t and the first quote.
3. Refresh the Services window to confirm the server has been installed as a service.
