Using a console to send commands to a server

Use a server console to see server events as they happen and to send commands to a server. Server events are also logged to a server's log file (LOG.NSF). You can view the log file from the Server > Analysis tab in the Domino® Administrator.

There is a server console available directly at a server. There are also remote consoles available through the Domino® Administrator and the Web Administrator. The types of commands you can send to a server using a remote console depends on the level of administrator access you have in the Server document.

Some tabs in the Domino® Administrator and Web Administrator automatically display information you would see after entering a server command at a console. For example, when you click the Server > Status tab, and click Server Tasks you see the equivalent of the Show Tasks command.

Some tabs have tool bars that let you enter a command using a dialog box. For example, you can enter Tell commands from the Server > Status tab tool bar.
