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 earlier 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.
® 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 NotesParent topic: Administering Lotus Notes Traveler
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. Lotus Notes Traveler syncs mail, calendar, and address book data in real time, and on select devices such as Windows Mobile and Nokia, it also supports the synchronization of to-do and journal data.
