Starting from SMID 5.5, the enhanced integrity checking requires the following parameters in notes.ini:
  • NotesProgram
  • Directory
  • ServerTasks
The issue occurs when one of the parameters above is missing.
To resolve the issue, make sure that those three (3) parameters exist in your notes.ini. If not, add the missing parameter according to your Domino installation.
For example, if you installed the Domino in w:\, the parameters are similar to the following:
NotesProgram=W:/notes
Directory=W:\notes\data
ServerTasks=Replica,Router,Update,AMgr,Adminp,Sched,CalConn,RnRMgr,POP3,LDAP
