Managing the IBM Lotus Domino Mail Server

eG Enterprise can automatically discover the IBM Lotus Domino mail server in the environment and also lets you to manually add the IBM Lotus Domino mail server for monitoring if the server is not auto-discovered. The following steps explain you how to manage the server that is auto-discovered using the eG administrative interface.

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. If a IBM Lotus Domino mail server is already discovered, then directly proceed towards managing it using the COMPONENTS – MANAGE/UNMANAGE page.
  3. However, if it is yet to be discovered, then run discovery (Infrastructure -> Components -> Discover) to get it discovered or add the component manually using the COMPONENTSpage (Infrastructure -> Components -> Add/Modify). Remember that components manually added are managed automatically. Discovered components, however, are managed using the COMPONENTS – MANAGE / UNMANAGE page.
  4. To manage the component that is auto-discovered, follow the Infrastructure -> Components -> Manage/Unmanage in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu.
  5. In the COMPONENTS – MANAGE/UNMANAGE page that appears next, select Domino Mail as the Component type. Then, the auto-discovered components will be displayed under the Unmanaged Components section.
  6. Then, choose the component to be managed from the list. and clearly illustrate the process of managing the application server.
