Kill Notes

This tiny batch file uses a built in tool to kill all running Notes processes.

EAS, Autonomy’s (now an HP company) enterprise archiving product does best if it’s restarted periodically. EAS accesses either the Domino or Exchange mail servers by using Notes and Outlook client code to pull messages out of the mail store and put it aside on a file server. In the case of accessing Domino, simply restarting the EAS server sometimes leaves nlnotes.exe or other Notes processes running.

This script uses the built in Notes debug tool nsd.exe to simply do it’s job — kill all running Notes & Domino processes. It’s one step in a larger set of batch scripts that restart all of the EAS processes, available here.
