Specifying a cleanup script for fault recovery

You can create an optional script that runs before any other cleanup takes place. Use the file FAULT_RECOVERY.ATT to collect the information from the script.


  1. From the Domino® Administrator, click the Configuration tab, and expand the Server section.
  2. Open the Server document, click Edit Server, and click the Basics tab.
  3. In the Fault Recovery section, complete these fields:
    Table 1. Fault Recovery fields



    Run This Script After Server Fault/Crash

    Enter the entire script name, including any extensions.

    Do not try to enable Notes® System Diagnostics (NSD) from this field. You can enable NSD in the field Run NSD to collect diagnostic information.

    Note: Directory separators (slashes) in the file name portion are converted for the operating system, but slashes in optional arguments are not converted.

    Run NSD To Collect Diagnostic Information

    Enable this field to activate NSD when there is a fault or crash.

    Cleanup Script/NSD Maximum Execution Time

    Enter the number of seconds for the cleanup script to run. Default is 300 seconds (5 minutes). Maximum is 1800 seconds.

    Maximum Fault Limits

    Enter the number of restarts allowed during a specified time limit -- for example, 3 crashes within 5 minutes. If the number of crashes exceeds the time limit, the server exits without restarting.

    Mail Fault Notification to

    Enter a user or group name. When the server restarts, Domino® checks if it is restarting after a crash and sends email to the person or group.
