IBM® Lotus® Expeditor Server reduces the overhead of creating and managing user IDs by building on support for federated repositories in WebSphere® Application Server 6.1.
In prior releases of Lotus Expeditor Server, the configuration process for the server integrated a user repository component into WebSphere Application Server. This component was called WebSphere Member Manager
. WebSphere Application Server 6.1 integrated its own user repository component called Virtual Member Manager
. This functionality allows you to federate one or more repositories as a single realm. For additional information on this topic, see information about federated repositories at http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v6r1/topic/com.ibm.websphere.nd.doc/info/ae/ae/cwim_fedrepos.html
Both Client Management services and DB2® Everyplace® use the WebSphere federated repository for all user and group relationships. Client users need only a single user ID to access the services of both DB2 Everyplace and Client Management services.
All of the user repository configuration now contained within WebSphere is set up before deploying Lotus Expeditor Server. It also can be modified after Lotus Expeditor Server deployment. WebSphere Application Server provides a default, file-based repository, but can also be configured with customer LDAP directories. Lotus Expeditor Server supports any of the LDAP directories that WebSphere Application Server supports. Note that wizards are not provided to assist with user repository configuration beyond what WebSphere provides.
