Registering a server
For background information on registering a server, see the topic Server registration.

Note If you have not specified a registration server in Administration Preferences, this server is by default:

  • The server specified in the NewUserServer setting in the NOTES.INI file
  • The Administration server

1. If you are supplying the certifier ID, make sure that you have access to it and that you know its password.

2. If you are using the Domino Administrator and would like the new server to support SSL, make sure that you have an Internet CA configured.

3. From the Domino Administrator or Web Administrator, click the Configuration tab.

4. From the Tools pane, click Registration – Server.

5. If you are using the Domino Administrator, do the following:

      1. If you are using the CA process, click Server and select a server that includes the Domino Directory that contains the Certificate Authority records, and the copy of the Administration Requests database (ADMIN4.NSF) that will be updated with the request for the new certificate. Then click “Use the CA Process,” select a CA-configured certifier from the list, and click OK.
      2. If you are supplying the certifier ID, select the registration server. Then click “Certifier ID” and locate the certifier ID file. Click OK, enter the password for the certifier ID, and click OK.
      3. In the Register Servers dialog box, click Continue if you want to apply the current settings to all servers registered in this registration session; otherwise, complete these fields:

        Field
        Action

        Registration Server
        Click Registration to specify the registration server.

        Certifier
        If the certifier ID displayed is NOT the one you want to use for all servers registered in this session, or if you want to use the Domino server-based CA instead of a certifier ID, click Certifier and you return to Step 4.

        Internet Certificate Authority
        If you want the server to support SSL, select an Internet CA from the list.

        Security type
        Choose either North American (default) or International. In practice, there is no difference between a North American and an International ID type.

        Certificate expiration date
        (Optional) To change the expiration date of the Server Certificate, enter the date in mmddyyyy format in the Certificate Expiration Date box. The default date is 100 years from the current date, minus allowances for leap years.

      4. Click Continue.

6. If you are using the Web Administrator, do the following:

      1. Select a registration server that includes the Domino Directory that contains the Certificate Authority records, and the copy of the Administration Requests database (ADMIN4.NSF) that will be updated with the request for the new certificate.
      2. Select a CA-configured certifier from the list, and click OK.

7. In the Register New Server(s) dialog box, complete these fields for each server that you want to register:

Field
Action

Server name
Enter the name of the new server.

Server title
Enter the server title, which appears on the Configuration tab in the All Server Documents view and in the Server Title field of the Server document.

Domino domain name
The default domain name is usually the same as the name of the organization certifier ID.

Server administrator name
Enter the name of the person who administers the server.

ID file password
Required if you are going to store the server ID in the Domino Directory.

Optional if you store the server ID in a file.

The password is case-sensitive and characters you use will depend on the level you set in the Password quality scale.

Password quality scale
Choose the level of complexity for the password. By default, the level is 0, where 16 is the highest.

Location for storing server ID

  • Select “In Domino Directory” to store the server ID in the Domino Directory.
  • Select “In File” to store the server ID file in a file. Then click “Set ID File,” select the name and path for the file, and click Save.

Note You don’t see this field from the Web Administrator, as the server ID is stored in the Domino Directory.

8. (Domino Administrator only) If you chose an Internet CA in the Register Servers dialog box and you want the server to support SSL connections, click Advanced, select “Enable SSL ports,” and complete the following fields:

      • Server key ring password — Enter a password for the server key ring
      • Server host name — Enter the fully qualified domain name of the server, for example, app01.acme.com

9. Do one:

      • Click the green check box to add the server to the registration queue.
      • Click the red X to clear the fields.

10. The server registration queue displays the servers ready to be registered. To display the settings for a server, select the server name in the queue.

11. Click one:

      • New Server — To clear fields in the Register New Server(s) dialog box
      • Register All — To register all servers in the registration queue
      • Register — To register the highlighted server in the registration queue
      • Remove — To remove the highlighted server from the registration queue
      • Done — To close the Register Server(s) dialog box. Any servers remaining in the registration queue will not be registered.

12. After you register a server, install it and then run the Server Setup program to configure it.
