Understanding the IBM Notes Traveler schema
Since the IBM Notes Traveler server comes with two options for configuring the enterprise database, it is necessary to understand the basic differences in schema creation for each of the two options. This will help you choose the correct schema configuration for your environment, as well as how to customize it.
For the enterprise database that IBM Notes Traveler supports (DB2 or SQL Server ), it is necessary to grant the appropriate level of permissions for running the IBM Notes Traveler server with either autoschema or DDL schema.
Schema migration requirements
There are some ground rules you should consider during migration.
Frequently asked questions about the enterprise database
There are several common questions concerning the deployment and configuration of the enterprise database.
Deploying and configuring the enterprise database
This section contains instructions for deploying and configuring both DB2
® and SQL enterprise databases for IBM Notes
Configuring IBM Notes Traveler for enterprise database
You can configure the IBM Notes
Traveler server to use the database created in the previous steps. Use this section when creating a High Availability (HA) pool or adding a server to an existing HA pool.
Configuring the IBM Notes Traveler High Availability pool on IBM i
This section describes how to configure the IBM Notes
Traveler server to use IBM
. Use this section when creating a High Availability (HA) pool or adding a server to an existing HA pool.
Updating the enterprise database
When upgrading the IBM Notes
Traveler servers in the HA Pool, it is necessary to upgrade the database schema level of the database used by the HA pool.
Deploy an IP sprayer or load balancer
To support a pool of IBM Notes
Traveler Servers, you will need to provide a single URL entry point for the devices. This can be accomplished by employing an IP sprayer or load balancer, allowing a device to connect to one URL and have the request routed to any of the IBM Notes
Traveler servers in the pool.
Setup for common configuration (optional)
In a IBM Notes
Traveler pool, it is critical that each server is configured identically.
Enable server to server secure communications (optional)
By default, IBM Notes
Traveler uses regular TCP sockets for communication between the IBM Notes
Traveler server and the HTTP server, as well as for communications between the IBM Notes
Traveler servers within an HA pool.
Removing a server from a High Availability pool
A IBM Notes
Traveler High Availability (HA) pool is a group of servers that are all configured to use the same enterprise database.
