Our organisation has a very old legacy app running under Domino 5.0 on a Dell Server on Windows 2000 Server. It is totally read-only, and just has to be there for cross-reference. Ideal solution is to virtualise onto our Vsphere platform. Made several attempts using VMware Standalone Converter 4.x and 3.03. Conversion always successful, but when the virtual server comes up and the Domino Server starts, we get the following message in the console, and none of the clients can connect.
[strong]10/08/2011 17:17:11 Server started on Physical Node XXXXXX[/strong]
[strong]10/08/2011 17:17:11 error on listen function: NETBIOS unit/lana number specified in NOTES.INI is not valid on this system or a network is not started[/strong]
Message repeats a number of times, then
[strong]10/08/2011 17:17:11 Listener task for port LAN0ip is suepending for 20 seconds due to listen errors[/strong]
[strong]10/08/2011 17:17:11 Router: Unable to obtain Internet Host and domain names [/strong]
The startup completes , but the users are unable to connect.
We have no Notes/Domino expertise on site, but we do have Windows/VMware/networking skills .We are guessing it is related to the network hardware changing and that Notes/Domino needs to be told somehow (NOTES.INI ?) . Please can anyone help with some simple troubleshooting steps/best way forward. each time we have done this we have had to roll back to the physical server, most frustrating !!
Thanks & Regards
