Creating a Server and Addin Task Event document

You can create a Server and Addin Task Event document for an event, but it is likely that the only time you will need to do so is when you run Domino® add-in tasks from third parties. All of the Domino® created events should already have corresponding Server and Addin Task Event documents.


  1. From the Domino® Administrator, click the Files tab.
  2. Open the Monitoring Configuration database, EVENTS4.NSF.
  3. In the navigation pane, click Advanced, and then open one of the Event Messages views.
  4. Click New Message. A blank Server and Addin Task Event document displays.
    Table 1. Options for a Server and Addin Task Event document



    Original Text

    Enter the text that is to display as the Event text whenever the event occurs.

    Addin name

    If the error pertains to an Addin program, enter the Addin program name; otherwise, leave this field blank.


    Specify the internal hexadecimal value for the event text. If you do not know this value, leave this field blank.

    Event type

    Choose the event type from the list.

    Event subtype

    Choose the corresponding event subtype.

    Old Event type

    The event type assigned to the corresponding pre-Domino 7 event.

    Event severity

    Specify the severity of the event.

    Suppression time

    Use this field to limit the number of times an event handler runs. After an event occurs and the event handler runs, if the event occurs again, the event handler cannot run until after the suppression time expires. An event handler defines the action that Domino® takes when a specific event occurs.

    Event correlation

    Domino® can correlate multiple events generated by one problem, and report those events as one error. Use this field to specify the type of event correlation to enable, or to specify that no correlation is to be enabled.

    Choose one:

    • No correlation -- Do not enable event correlation for this event.
    • Server wide correlation -- Correlate this event on each server in the domain.
    • Database wide correlation -- Correlate this event in each database.
    • Server and database wide correlation -- Correlate this event across all servers and databases.
    • Target UNID -- Correlate this event for events with the same UNID.
  5. Click the Custom Entries tab.
  6. Click the Probable Cause/Possible Solution tab or Corrective Actions tab.
  7. Click Add and select an entry to add entries. Add as many Probable Cause, Possible Solution, and Corrective Actions statements as necessary.
  8. Click Save and Close.
