There are IBM
® setup items and Linux
™ operating system considerations when planning the IBM Lotus Notes
® Traveler server installation.
For detailed system requirements, see this article: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27022506
Lotus Domino setup considerations
- The Domino server that hosts Lotus Notes Traveler must have access to user mail servers and Manager plus delete access to mail files. This access is granted by adding this server to the LocalDomainServers group.
- In a multi-domain environment, the Domino server hosting Lotus Notes Traveler might need to be cross certified with the other Domain mail servers for access to be granted.
- Each user must have an HTTP password, or directory assistance must be configured so that the user ID and password can be validated.
- Each user should have an Internet address specified in their person document. In general, mobile devices work better with Internet addresses than with Domino style addresses.
- Each user must be in the local names.nsf database of this Domino server or directory assistance must be configured so the users can be found.
- If you are using Internet Site documents and plan on syncing Apple devices, ensure that the Options command is enabled on the Configuration tab of the Internet Site document. This is required to register and sync Apple devices.
- Set More name variations with lower security in the Internet authentication parameter on the Security tab of the server document. This action resolves many login issues.
- Review the Lotus Domino documentation before installing Lotus Notes Traveler. In particular, read the sections on SSL, directory assistance, Lotus Domino domains, and Lotus Domino mail router. These are Lotus Domino functions and not controlled by Lotus Notes Traveler.
- Lotus Notes Traveler requires the following notes.ini parameters during startup. Review them and be sure that they have the correct values, or Lotus Notes Traveler can fail to start.
- The Lotus Domino server that is hosting each Lotus Notes Traveler service must have the HTTP web server component installed. This component is installed by default when you install your Lotus Domino server.
- Lotus Domino service provider configuration is not supported by Lotus Notes Traveler. Lotus Domino Service Provider setup does not allow servlets which are required for Lotus Notes Traveler to function.
- Lotus Notes Traveler does not support Roaming Users or Roaming Profiles. All of the user's data must exist in the mail file on the mail server.
Installing on Linux
- You must run the Lotus Notes Traveler installation application as the root user.
- You must run the Lotus Notes Traveler utility (travelerUtil) as the root user.
- Ensure the Domino user's password is not expired or it may cause the Lotus Notes Traveler installation application to hang. This is because the OS will prompt the installer to change the password.
- Running the installer as a user other than root user may cause the install application to hang. In addition, the server may not be able to start after installation due to incorrect file permissions.
- If you login to a Linux system as a non root user and SU to root, you may see an error trying to launch the Lotus Notes Traveler installer in UI mode, similar to java.lang.noclassdeffounderror sun awt x11graphicsenvironment. This depends on the system configuration, but you can work around by either logging in to the system using the root user or simply running the installer in silent mode (for more information, see Installing in silent mode on Linux operating systems).
