The base Domino servers are all part of the same domain and and can be managed from one central Domino admin client. The names.nsf (Domino directory) is replicated amongst all the Domino servers in the environment to allow for each server to maintain the users and their access to the system.
These are the steps that we captured when installing the Domino servers to be used as the hosts for the Lotus Notes Traveler servers. If you already have Domino servers in the environment that you can dedicate to Lotus Notes Traveler, then you can continue to the Lotus Notes Traveler installation segment of this section. The installation of Domino is documented here because it is important that the Domino servers are configured to be aware of the other servers in the environment.
Use these steps to install the Domino server:
Start the installer:
If installing from eAssembly, start the eAssembly and follow the installation steps.
If installing from DVD, simply insert the DVD into the target system's DVD ROM drive. If autorun is enabled for the system, the Common Launchpad starts automatically. If autorun is disabled, navigate to the DVD content and double-click Launchpad.exe.

Choose the installation directory:
Choose the installation data directory:
Select which server type to use:
For high availability, you must use the enterprise version of the software. Select Domino Enterprise Server.
The installation begins and provides status:
After you select Finish, do not attempt to start and configure the server until you have first registered this in the Domino environment. This is covered in 4.3.1 Lotus Domino configuration.
After you have properly configured the Domino server into the environment, the next task is to install the Lotus Notes Traveler server. All Lotus Notes Traveler installations begin as stand-alone versions of the product. It is not until you add these servers into the central enterprise database that the servers go from being a stand-alone server to a member of the Lotus Notes Traveler pool.

After the server is installed as a stand-alone server and initialized, you can add this sever to the Lotus Notes Traveler pool, and achieve high availability. We discuss the Notes Traveler configuration for high availability in 4.3.3 Lotus Notes Traveler configuration for high availability
