Domino Server Crash Debug Data Collection

Even though Domino servers tend to be very stable, it may happen that every now and then there is a crash. In that case it is good to be able to provide appropriate details to IBM. Here are some recommendations form IBM tech support:

  • Make sure gdb is installed on the OS (Unix OSs only)
  • Add the following lines to notes.ini:
    debug_threadid=1
    debug_show_timeout=1
    debug_capture_timeout=1

These recommendations apply to any Domino based server: Quickr, Sametime, Traveler.

- shut down vm
- rsync -av /var/lib/vz/images/<VMID> /mnt/pve/<NFS VOL>/images/
- edit /etc/qemu-server/<VMID>.conf

- start up vm
