The IBM® Lotus Notes® Traveler server component functions as a Domino® server add-in task and responds to Domino server console commands. Topics in this section describe common administrative tasks for administering a Lotus Notes Traveler server.
Starting and stopping the server
The IBM Lotus Notes Traveler server and the HTTP server automatically start if you accept the default settings during installation. Use the commands in this topic to manually start or stop the Lotus Notes Traveler server.
Assigning device preferences and security settings to devices
There are different ways to assign settings that determine how users work with the IBM Lotus Notes Traveler server. You can use the built-in set of default device preferences and security settings that Lotus Notes Traveler provides, which is simpler. Or you can create a Lotus Notes Traveler policy settings document, which provides greater flexibility and control but is more complex to configure.
If a mobile device is lost or stolen, an administrator can issue a remote wipe command to remove all sensitive data from the device. You can remove the IBM Lotus Notes Traveler application and data from the device and, depending on the device, restore the device to the factory default settings.
Controlling access to Lotus Notes Traveler
When a user leaves the company or a device is lost or stolen, you must remove or restrict access to the IBM Lotus Notes Traveler server. This section covers methods for removing and restricting access.
Rebuilding the Cluster Cache database
When the IBM Lotus Notes Traveler Cluster Cache database does not reflect changes to Domino mail clusters, a rebuild of the cluster cache database is required.
Viewing user and device information
There are four views an administrator can access that provide useful information. These views include which users have registered with the IBM Lotus Notes Traveler server, device security policy compliance status, remote wipe status, connection status, and build level. Use the steps in this topic to access user and device information.
Using the LotusTraveler.nsf database
When using the LotusTraveler.nsf
database, there are several important factors to be aware of.
This topic provides a detailed description of the IBM Lotus Notes Traveler console commands.
Enabling syncing of read or unread changes
Unread replication is enabled for each user automatically by the Lotus Notes Traveler server so that unread marks sync correctly with the device. This section explains how to activate unread replication manually using the Domino Administrator client.
Adding external calendars to your Lotus Notes calendar
You can add an external calendar to your Notes® calendar and select the View this calendar when offline or on a mobile device
option. IBM Lotus Notes Traveler can then sync the external calendar events to your device that have been saved for offline or mobile viewing.
