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
Using the administration application
The Lotus Notes
Traveler administration database is contained in the LotusTraveler.nsf
. This database contains the user interface that is used to view mobile user and device information, as well as set default device preference and security policies.
Assigning 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.
This topic provides a detailed description of the IBM Lotus Notes
Traveler console commands.
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.
Deleting a user from Lotus Notes Traveler
An administrator can remove old or invalid users from the IBM Lotus Notes
Traveler administrator UI and database. This should only be done for users where access is already restricted using a Lotus Notes
Traveler or Domino
server access list, or who are no longer listed in the Domino
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
Repeated crash protection
When certain Notes
® documents are corrupted or contain non-standard content, they can cause the Lotus Notes Traveler server to repeatedly crash as it tries to process these documents. A repeating crash prevention feature exists to help minimize Lotus Notes
Traveler server outage in these instances.
Maintaining the Lotus Notes Traveler database
Whether running standalone Lotus Notes
Traveler servers with the internal database or a pool of servers with an enterprise database, the database requires periodic maintenance to maintain optimal performance.
Address encoding for Apple devices
Apple devices cannot support the full range of acceptable Domino
mail addresses. To allow the Apple device to properly handle non-standard internet address formats, Lotus Notes
Traveler has a feature that encodes them into internet addresses supported by Apple devices.
Enforcing data sync limits
For Lotus Notes
Traveler 188.8.131.52 and later releases, administrators can enforce synchronization data limits for all users using a setting in the Default Settings document.
The usage log shows every sync and device command that the system performs on behalf of mobile users.
Confirming external recipients on Android devices
For Android devices, you can choose to prompt the user to confirm the sending of mail to external recipients. This provides an extra step to help prevent the unintentional sending of mail outside of your organization.
