Follow these steps to perform an automated installation of the IBM® Lotus Notes® Traveler server.
Installation files are located on the IBM Lotus Notes Traveler Server DVD or can be downloaded from Passport Advantage or Partner World. Maintenance releases can also be obtained from Fix Central. Versions obtained from Fix Central will require Lotus Notes Traveler to already be installed.
- Ensure that you stop the Domino server before installing Lotus Notes Traveler. If installing from a DVD, use the executable from the linux directory. If installing from a download, first extract the tar file to a temporary directory.
- Verify the settings in the installer.properties file, using Table 1 below (if necessary, create the file). A pre filled sample is provided in the downloaded tar file.
- Verify the locale setting in the silentInstall script included in the e-assembly. Locale values are provided below, in Table 2.
- Launch the silentInstall script file included in the e-assembly: ./silentInstall
- Important: To determine if the install succeeded, you must review the installation logs. First, check DOMINO_DATA_DIRECTORY_1/IBM_TECHNICAL_SUPPORT/traveler/logs/TravelerInstall.log for any warnings or recoverable errors. If this file does not exist or the timestamp is old, then likely a unrecoverable error occurred. All unrecoverable errors are written to InstallError.log in the directory containing the installation application.
If an installation is a silent installation, then the uninstall operation is silent by default. A silent uninstallation does not require a properties file; it uninstalls all Lotus Notes Traveler files from all Domino® partitions in which they were installed.
Table 1. Installer properties
Table 2. Locale values
|ACCEPT_LICENSE=||true | false||Set to true if you agree to the terms of the license agreement. If set to false, the application is not installed.|
|DOMINO_PROGRAM_DIRECTORY=||Fully qualified path||Path to the IBM Lotus® Domino program directory, where the nserver.exe file exists.|
|DOMINO_DATA_DIRECTORY_1=||Fully qualified path||Path to the Domino data directory, where names.nsf exists.|
Note: If you are using a partitioned Domino installation, specify additional partitions by incrementing this parameter. For example, for a second partition, specify DOMINO_DATA_DIRECTORY_2=Fully-qualified path.
|DOMINO_NOTESINI_DIRECTORY_1=||Fully qualified path||Path to the notes.ini file for this instance of the Lotus Domino server.|
Note: If you are using a partitioned Domino installation, specify additional notes.ini files corresponding to data directories by incrementing this parameter. For example, for a second directory, specify DOMINO_NOTESINI_DIRECTORY_2=Fully-qualified path.
|LINUX_USER_NAME= ||Linux username ||This property is the user name that the Lotus Domino server uses. It is required to set file permissions correctly during the installation process. Leave blank to automatically detect it during installation.|
|LINUX_GROUP_NAME= ||Linux groupname ||This is the primary group of the Linux® user that the Domino Server runs under. It is required to set file permissions correctly during the installation process. Leave blank to auto detect this value during installation.|
|NTS_WEBSITE_HOME=||0 | 1||When set to 1 during startup, Lotus Notes Traveler sets the user home page as the default website for the Domino server. This is a useful starting place for users because it provides status information, links to client software, and user management options. |
If the Lotus Notes Traveler user home page is set as the default, it can be viewed by pointing any device browser to http://hostname. If the user home page is not set as the default, it can be viewed by pointing any device browser to http://hostname/servlet/traveler. This setting takes effect the first time Lotus Notes Traveler is started and can be changed manually at a later time.
|OVERRIDE_BACKREV=||true | false||This optional property applies only to downgrade installations. If a newer version is already installed, false is the default value and the installation is not allowed. Set to true to override the default and downgrade the Lotus Notes Traveler server using silent installation.|
