In this chapter, we walk through a scenario where the goal is to deploy a smaller, stand-alone IBM Lotus Notes Traveler server that can be used in the case of most smaller businesses. We briefly discuss certain planning steps that are detailed in 2.0 Planning
, and go over our topology considerations. One thing to note is that given our requirements for this deployment, the version of Lotus Notes Traveler 8.5.3 Upgrade Pack 1 is a scalable version of the software. Meaning, if the environment is to grow, and there is a need to add another server (either for high availability or an increase of devices), this can be done without a problem to the environment. This is further discussed in 6.0 Migration
where we discuss "migrating" to a high availability environment.
Installation, configuration, and user deployment are three major milestones in deploying an IBM Lotus Notes Traveler environment. After the Lotus Notes Server is configured and ready to serve the users, users can configure their devices to connect to Lotus Notes Traveler to access their mails. User deployment to devices is covered in full detail in 5.0 User deployment
. This chapter includes the following sections:
