How to start or stop the Domino service remotely?
Is there a way to stop or start the Domino service remotely on a Windows machine?
To stop or start the Domino server remotely you can use Microsoft's Windows IPC$ share to create temporary connection with the server and send an administrative command.
Step 1 - create the connection with remote server:
Open the CMD (command prompt) and use following command (provide username and password if asked):
net use \\hostname\IPC$
where hostname is the IP or the name of the machine
Step 2 - send command to stop/start the Domino service (use proper hostaname/IP and the Domino service name and path):
To stop the Domino server:
sc \\hostname stop "Lotus Domino Server (Cdominodata)"
To start the Domino server:
sc \\hostname start "Lotus Domino Server (Cdominodata)"
