Configure services for Lotus® Domino® to suit the needs of your organization and environment.
Creating and using the qpconfig.xml file (advanced)
You can use an XML configuration file, qpconfig.xml file, to perform many server configuration tasks. The server comes with a sample file, qpconfig_sample.xml, which is installed in the server data directory and which you use as a template.
Performing IBM i-specific configuration tasks
IBM® Lotus Quickr™ for IBM i provides additional functions that enable you to change server properties and to change language dictionaries.
Connecting to a user directory (optional)
Connecting to a user directory, although optional, maximizes the features available to you.
Configuring the Place Catalog
The Place Catalog is a database that collects information about IBM Lotus Quickr places and servers. A local Place Catalog is enabled by default on each Lotus Quickr server.
Configuring security (advanced)
Configuring security for the IBM Lotus Quickr involves configuring user authentication, configuring user access to the server, as well as performing other miscellaneous security configuration tasks.
Integrating with other applications
Your users can use connectors to work with documents on a IBM Lotus Quickr server from their desktop applications. Users can use IBM Lotus Sametime® features within places, if you enable that capability on the server.
Setting up Lotus Quickr for offline use (optional)
Domino Off-Line Services provides the means for users to take IBM Lotus Quickr places offline, make changes to the places, and then synchronize the changes with the online version of the place on the server. A user must be an individual member of a place to take it offline; users who access a place through group membership cannot take places offline.
Configuring the My Places feature
The My Places feature enables external place members to see a list of links to all the places they belong to, and users with super-user server access to see links to all places on the server. Super users and place managers use My Places to see place statistics and administer places using qptool
commands. You can customize the My Places feature.
Specifying rules for a reverse proxy configuration
If a reverse proxy mediates connections to IBM Lotus Quickr, specify proxy rules for Lotus Quickr.
Customizing Web page cache settings
Web page caching greatly improves the response time of the IBM Lotus Quickr server. Use the notes.ini file to customize Web page cache settings.
Configuring cross-place searching
Configure cross-place searching to enable external place members to use the advanced search feature to search multiple places.
Prohibiting room creation
By default, place managers and owners can create rooms in their places. As an Administrator, you can prohibit these users from creating rooms by configuring appropriate settings in the qpconfig.xml file.
Enabling uploads of 10 MB or larger files
To enable uploading of files to the server that are larger than 10 MB, you should check specific settings for the Lotus Quickr/Domino server and increase them as necessary.
