Completing the Volt server configuration

After your Volt server starts, use your Notes or Domino Administrator client to complete the server configuration.

Note: The Volt Docker container publishes the NRPC (1352) port to the host system running Docker. Before you complete the following steps, create a connection record to the Volt server in your Notes or Domino Administrator local address book.


  1. Enable the HTTP GET, POST, PUT, DELETE and HEAD methods as described in Configuring the Volt server.
  2. Enable session authentication as described in Configuring the Volt server. Volt works best when at least “Single Server” authentication is enabled, but other forms of session authentication are supported. Basic authentication is not recommended.
  3. Modify the serverURI setting as described in the "Verify VoltConfig.nsf" section in Volt post-installation tasks. The serverURI hostname, protocol and port must match the parameters in the docker run command.
  4. Restart the Domino HTTP process to be sure each of the preceding changes take effect.
  5. Launch a browser and visit the Volt Manager page.


The Volt server is completely configured and ready to use. The absolute URL of the Volt manager page depends on your server host name and whether you have enabled HTTPS on your server. The relative URL is /volt-apps/secure/org/ide/manager.html. For example, if the container host name is, the absolute URL might be

Note: Users can create a bash session in their Volt container to modify configuration files such as notes.ini using the docker exec command. For example: docker exec -u notes -it volt /bin/bash provides an interactive bash shell with "notes" user access that can be used to modify /local/notesdata/notes.ini.
Note: Modifying java.policy is not required for Docker.
