About selecting Lotus Domino databases for backup

After installing the Lotus Domino Agent, you can select existing Lotus Domino databases in the selections pane.

Figure: Domino server file types that appear in the Backup Exec selections view

Domino server file types that appear in the Backup Exec selections view

The following file types appear in the view for the Lotus Domino server:

  • filename.nsf - Lotus Domino database files

  • filename.ntf - Lotus Domino template files

  • filename.box - shared mail database

  • filename.dsk - cache files

You must back up all of these files in order to properly recover Lotus Domino Databases.

Only database files and the <server>.id file appear under the Lotus Domino Databases view. Domino Program files and other files such as .id and notes.ini appear in the volume in which the Lotus Domino Program directory is located. They must be backed up separately as part of a system backup.

Note:

A full backup of the Domino server includes the <server>.id file. As a result, the Active File Exclusion feature automatically excludes the <server>.id file.
