We only use Lotus Domino as a Web server for customers. My ID file expired. When I went to the server to recertify my ID file, I found the admin ID file had expired as well. I might use it once a month or so, thus the inactivity. I assume that there is a default admin to log in as, but I can't seem to find it. Do you have any ideas? Mine, and the admin, are the only "Admins" on the Domino server.
There is no default admin as there is with other systems. The reason is that user accounts are held in ID files, not built into the server. Try creating a new admin account by launching a local Lotus Notes client on the Domino server machine.
