and then reboot your Windows 2003 servers that are running Lotus Notes Domino.

You must have the shutdown.exe executable command on the Windows 2003 server and be able to execute it from the script for this reboot to work.

A few additional things to keep in mind when using this batch file:

  • The script will wait for 30 seconds before starting, so that it can be cancelled if needed.
  • Upon using the .BAT file, the Domino service is intermittently stopped.
  • Dates are set up so that log files can be renamed with date and time stamps.
