The IBM SmartCloud Notes
) Hybrid environment requires the use of an Organizational Unit (OU) certifier ID file, which will be used to certify your company's mail servers in the service. This SmartCloud Notes
mail server OU certifier ID file is uploaded during the SmartCloud Notes
hybrid configuration setup and will not be used on any on-premises Domino
server. It is reserved for use by the SmartCloud Notes
All connection requests made by servers in the service to on-premises servers are handled by servers in your on-premises passthru server domain. Recall, the passthru server domain is a dedicated domain with its own Domino
directory situated inside your corporate network demilitarized zone (DMZ). The passthru servers authenticate servers making connections from the service and allow passthru connections only for those servers that are certified by the SmartCloud Notes
mail server OU certifier ID file you provide.
It is important that you choose and create your SmartCloud Notes
mail server OU certifier carefully. After you upload the OU certifier ID file to the service, you cannot change to an ID with a different certifier name. For additional information about certifier requirements in a hybrid environment, please see: Certifier requirements in a hybrid environment
