Can anyone please help me I have inherited a Domino Server who someone has installed with a password on the Server ID This is fine most of the time except when rebooting the server and the Notes service stops to wait for the password. This is awkward as I am not always on site Does anyone know how to remove this password from the Server ID Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There are 2 ways to do this. Hopefully, you can do the easy way. You will need to examine the server ID file. You do this as you would any ID file via the administration client. The key is if the password length is set to zero or not. If it is set to zero, you can simply “clear password”, and you’re fine. If it has a minimum password length, then you would actually have to recreate the server ID file and give it a password length of zero. Doing option 2 obviously requires some planning and downtime to switch the ID on the server. Also, if the server ID is used to encrypt anything, that data would be unreadable from that point on.

    If the id file has a password length of 0 then you will be able to clear the password but if it isn't then make a copy of the id file using the operating system then recertify it using the domain certifier which gives you the option of resetting password length to 0 which will enable you to clear the password. Do it on a copy of the ID not the real one for obvious reasons, down the server, rename the old is file and put new one in place, I'm not sure if recertifying will cause you a problem with database encryption but hopefully nothing was encrypted using the server id anyway but just in case keep it somewhere safe just to be sure.
