Creating symbolic links for the Domino plug-in on Linux and Solaris hosts

Contributors Download PDF of this page

You need to perform this procedure if you want to create symbolic links for the Domino plug-in on Linux and Solaris hosts.

You should not copy and paste commands directly from this document; errors (such as incorrectly transferred characters caused by line breaks and hard returns) might result. Copy and paste the commands into a text editor, verify the commands, and then enter them in the CLI console.

Note The paths provided in the following steps refer to the 32-bit systems; 64-bit systems must create simlinks to /usr/lib64 instead of /usr/lib.
  1. Add links to /usr/lib for the following files:

    • libxmlproc.so

    • libndgts.so

    • libnotes.so

    • libgsk8iccs.so (for Domino 9.0 or later only) A typical method of creating a symbolic link is to use the ln command:

    ln -s /path/to/source_file /usr/lib/linked_file

    + where:

    • -s instructs the operating system to make a symbolic link.

    • /path/to/source_file is the path to one of the Domino library files, including the file name.

    • linked_file is the name of the file that is being linked.

      ln -s /opt/ibm/domino/notes/latest/linux/libxmlproc.so /usr/lib/libxmlproc.so
      ln -s /opt/ibm/domino/notes/latest/linux/libndgts.so /usr/lib/libndgts.so
      ln -s /opt/ibm/domino/notes/latest/linux/libnotes.so /usr/lib/libnotes.so
      ln -s /opt/ibm/domino/notes/latest/linux/libgsk8iccs.so /usr/lib/libgsk8iccs.so
  2. Verify the path to the files listed in Step 1.
