A Domino Server migration tip for part time / ex Domino Admins

One of the things I always loved about the Lotus Domino Server was how easy it was to move it to new hardware. Run the installer, copy the data directory (and .ini file if needed) and boom – server comes up as before, no problems.

So when I recently did a migration (for my last remaining Domino customer) where the drive structure changed I was surprised to see logging errors appear as it was trying to access the old Domino Data path. Turns out the culprit was Traveler. To fix this, simply edit the %DominoData%\traveler\cfg\NTSLogging.properties file and update the paths to be correct.

I suspect if you’re working with Domino a lot, or spent any amount of time reading Traveler documentation then this is probably pretty obvious, but for someone who hasn’t needed to touch a Domino server in a while you might get a bit thrown off by seeing a reference to the old data directory appear on your console!
