Domino Start Script Survey Results

Thanks for everyone who responded to the Linux Start Script Survey!
This was really helpful. Let me share the results.

I am not sure if this is completely representative. I will be at DNUG conference next week and I will ask for feedback there as well in my sessions.


But I am not really wrong in what I thought. I was surprised by CentOS used that much!
And also how many would prefer to have the start script in a git repository.

From the feedback I get the following results in short. See the screen prints for the detailed responses.


1. Most of you are using the default locations


/opt/ibm/domino and /local/notesdata.


2. For a new location the preference seems to be /opt/nashcom.

That would be very straight forward and clean and I could put also the extra files and sample configuration into the same location.


3. CentOS as a distribution is very popular for all who replied!
That wasn't expected since we have official support just for a year!


4. Many of you are using "sudo". That means I can think about how to better integrate with sudo and make it easier.

I will have a separate post about that.


5. Most of you are using VMware ESX(i) virtualization. Hardware is almost zero.


6. In consequence almost nobody is using partitioning.

That's what I expected. I keep the support for partition servers anyway. But I will not put effort into making the configuration easier.


7. Almost nobody tried to use SELinux on a Domino server.


8. Many want to have the start script in a git repository but there are still many who want to download a tar.

So I will probably do both in a way.
