The IBM Notes
Traveler server is installed and runs on an IBM Domino
® server. The server must have access to the mail files of mobile IBM Notes
Traveler users. These mail files are either located on the same server as the IBM Notes
Traveler server or they are hosted on remote Domino
servers. IBM Notes
Traveler uses a IBM Domino
directory to find the home mail server for a IBM Notes
Traveler user. If the mobile users are not present in the local Domino
), then IBM Domino
directory assistance must be configured so that these users can be found in remote Domino
Traveler servers can be deployed as standalone servers, or if a highly available environment is required, as part of a pool of servers.
The IBM Domino
server that is hosting each IBM Notes
Traveler service must have the HTTP web server component installed. This component is installed by default when you install your IBM Domino
service provider configuration is not supported by IBM Notes
Traveler. IBM Domino
Service Provider setup does not allow servlets which are required for IBM Notes
Traveler to function.
For information about the types of server and network topologies to consider and details about local and remote mail files, see these topics:
Planning your server topologyParent topic: Planning for installation and configuration
The IBM Notes
Traveler server can be deployed using several different configurations. Considerations should be given to capacity and availability needs of the IBM
Traveler servers, location of mail servers, domain of mail servers and directory server compatibility.
Planning your network topology
Where to place your IBM Notes
Traveler server in your network depends on the types of devices used and sync types. This section includes a list of possible scenarios and why one might be selected over another.
Remote and local mail file considerations
Traveler user mail databases do not need to reside on the same Domino
server as the IBM Notes
Traveler service. In a remote configuration, the IBM Notes
Traveler service looks up the IBM Notes
Traveler mail server name and file name of the user from the local names.nsf and remotely connects to that mail server when needed.
Domino directory server version compatibility
If you are installing IBM Notes
Traveler into a IBM Domino
domain that is running with a IBM Domino
directory template older than the version shipped with your version of IBM Notes
Traveler, upgrade the design of the directory server template before installing the IBM Notes
Traveler server in the domain.
Supporting multiple IBM Domino domains
Typically, the IBM Notes
Traveler server deploys in the same Domino
domain as production mail servers. However, there are a number of reasons why you may want to separate your IBM
Traveler server domain and your production mail server domains.
