Finally, here's the summary. Even though it was a bit out of line, I'm
summarizing anyway since all these poeple replied and it did fix the problem.
First things first, thanks a lot to:
Mark de Roo
"Paul J. Bogdan"
... for their answers.
Most of them recommended a script I modified a bit to fit my system. The
redirections didn't work before 'cause of a dumb mistake I made that was making
my notes server prompting for a passwd at startup. Fixing this fixed
everything and I can now start my server from a script.
The line I used looks like that:
/usr/bin/su - notes -c cd /usr/local/notes/notesr4;\
/opt/lotus/bin/server <$NOTESCOMMAND >>$NOTESLOG 2>&1 &
And I use a "server -q" the stop the server before I shutdown the machine.
Everything is now perfect thanks to everyone of you out there.
