Installing and removing the plug-in


Before installing the Plug‑in for Domino, verify that the following software is installed and properly configured on the machine that is to serve as the Domino Server:

NetVault Backup Server and Client software: At a minimum, the NetVault Backup Client must be installed on the machine configured as the Domino Server.
Set up Transactional Logging: Ensure that Transactional Logging is enabled on the Domino Server. For details, see Setting up Transactional logging on the Domino Server.
Double-check symbolic links on Linux and UNIX: If you use Domino on Linux or UNIX, the plug-in might not let you browse the Domino Server because some symbolic links are not created during installation. Other Domino client applications, such as compact, might also fail to run correctly. For example, if you run the compact command for a database, compact -c /path/notesdata/filename.nsf, you might encounter an error such as: “Error while loading shared libraries: <nameOfLibrary>: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.”
