    Domino 6 contains a new tool to monitor and administer a Lotus Domino server: the Domino Console. In contrast to the well-known Administrator Client, Domino Console allows you to connect to more than one server at the same time. However, it does not allow you to automate the logon process. Therefore, if you need to connect to many Domino servers, such as after restarting a z/OS or z/VM system, you have to enter a lot of user IDs, passwords, and server names, for example.

    This Technote explains how to automate this process. It's as simple as building a configuration file with the information for your Domino servers and running the script that is provided. For additional questions, contact Dr. Andreas Gallus of IBM Germany at
