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 you are using a Lotus Notes Traveler policy settings document, the template of the address book on the Lotus Notes Traveler server should be no later than version 8.5.2.
When the policy or default settings have been created for your Apple devices, remove the com.apple.mobiledevice.passwordpolicy <dict>
from the /traveler/cfg/client/Apple.xml
file. This is because the security enhancements are enforced in the sync flow rather than through Apple.xml
. This avoids contradictions in the two settings, prevents users from getting around the settings by manually creating the account, allows the settings to be more personalized to individual users or subsets of users, and allows the security settings to be dynamic without user interaction.
Lotus® Notes® Traveler defined device security settings apply to Apple devices. However, the device preference settings (Sync settings, filter settings, and device settings) do not apply to Apple devices.
Default device preferences and security settings
IBM Lotus Notes Traveler provides a built-in set of default device preferences and security settings that an administrator can modify for use when a device initially registers with Lotus Notes Traveler. Users can then modify their device preferences from their Lotus Notes Traveler device clients.
Creating a Lotus Notes Traveler policy settings document
Use the IBM Lotus Notes Traveler policy settings document to define device preferences and security settings for syncing Domino user mail database data with their mobile devices. You can sync email, calendar, to-do, contacts, and journal data. Auto Sync technology is used to deliver updates to devices as they occur in real time.
