How do you back up the server automatically?

Create a batch file with the following commands:
@echo off
net stop Lotus Domino Server
ntbackup BACKUP c:\ /D Domino Server Backup /hc:on /B /T Normal
net start Lotus Domino Server

This assumes that the Notes server is running as a Windows NT service and the server Notes ID is not password-protected.
