Solution



To prevent Lotus Domino for requiring a password to be entered with Lotus Domino starts (Figure 1), the password assigned to the server.ID file needs to be cleared.

Figure 1


1.  On the node that Lotus Domino is running, start the NLNOTES.EXE program located in the Lotus\Domino folder where the program files were installed on the local drive.
2.  Login using same password used in the Lotus Domino console on startup.
3.  Select File > Tools > User ID... (Figure 2)

Figure 2


4.  Click on the Clear Password button (Figure 3).

5.  Enter the old password used in the Lotus Domino console on startup.
6.  Test password clear by restarting Lotus Domino or switching to another node in the cluster.
