Installing on Linux Server

NOTE: The Early Access June release contains only a Docker image. The installer described here is planned for a later code drop.

On Linux the installer uses the HCL Domino server to install KEEP. It is strongly recommended to use the default directories on Linux.

The call to the installer looks like this:

java -jar keepinstaller.jar \
 -d="/local/notesdata" \
 -i="/local/notesdata/notes.ini" \
 -k="/opt/hcl/keep" \
 -p="/opt/hcl/notes/linux/latest" \

All parameters

Short full parameter mandatory Description
-d --dataDir=<dataDir> Directory of your HCL Notes or Domino data
-i --ini=<notesIni> HCL Notes/Domino notes.ini file
-k --keepDir=<keepDir> Directory for the Keep binary installation
-p --programDir=<programDir> Directory where HCL Notes or Domino is installed
-a --accept   automatically accept terms & ccoditions
-h --help   Show this help message and exit.
-n --noIniUpdates   Install the files, show updated ini entries, but don’t write them out
-r --dryRun   do not actually copy or alter files and settings
-s --skipDirectoryCheck   skips the checks if the program and data directories
contain Notes/Domino
-V --version   Print version information and exit.

The installer adds the keep task to the automatically starting tasks. If opted out using -n you can issue load keep manually in the Domino console.

Please refer to the The KEEP Task detail page.

Verifying the installation

The installer conducts a series of actions:

  • Create the Keep directory
  • copy the projectkeep*.jar file there
  • create a libs folder in the Keep directory
  • copy all supporting jar files there
  • copy keep into the Domino directory
  • update the ServerTasks variable in notes.ini, add keep
  • add a variable KeepCmdLine to the notes.ini pointing to
  • update the EXTMGR_ADDINS variable in the notes.ini
