Sending commands from a Web Administrator console

There are two remote consoles available from the Domino® Web Administrator: the Quick Console and the Live Console.

About this task

Use the Live Console to send commands to a Web server running under a Controller. Using the Live Console you can send Controller and operating system (shell) commands as well as Domino® server commands.

Use the Quick Console to send commands to a Web server that does not run under a Controller. Or use it if you are unable to install or use the Java Plug-in in your browser.

A Domino® command can contain up to 255 characters.

If an argument for a command contains a space, enclose it in quotation marks. For example: PULL "Acme Server."
