New to Connections? New to Linux? Learn along with me as I install Connections 4 on a RHEL 6.3 system!
|Hi! My name is Vinny Del Signore and I work for IBM Software Services for Collaboration Learning Services team. |
I have 14 years experience working with Domino as a quality engineer. Recently, I began to learn how to install Connections. Maybe you find yourself in a similar position -- you're a Domino administrator who wants to take advantage of the integration with Connections Profiles or Files. And maybe like me you were uncertain how to get started.
You have come to the right place! Over the next couple months, I will be publishing a 9-part tutorial on installing Connections on a RHEL 6.3 system. The architectural differences between Notes/Domino and Connections can seem overwhelming at first. We will take this one step at a time, starting with preparing your system.
As if diving into Connections wasn't enough, I'll also be tackling Linux. It's been a few years since I've used Linux on a regular basis, so look for tips and explanations geared towards the Windows user and Linux novice.
This project was inspired by the great work done by a couple of IBM business partners for Connections 3. You can check out their Windows-based tutorial over at Connections101.net.
If you see a mistake or have a comment or suggestion, please put a comment on the article. I look forward to learning along with you!
