With the Domino server running on Windows 2008 R2 or above, and when you launch the Domino Console i.e. the Java Controller for Domino, it gives the below error message:


Either the Server Controller is not running on the host Server/Name or is not listening on port 2050

Resolving this issue

There are multiple methods to resolving this issue:

  • Add the entry for the IP address which is mapped to server name in the local host file (e.g Server/Name).


  • Enable the below notes.ini parameter in the Domino server's notes.ini.
TCPIP_ControllerTcpIpAddress=<ip address>:2050

Where: <ip address> is the IP address of the Domino server.


  • With the above settings done, restart the Operating System (OS).
