|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.
Note: Use of the connectors, Sametime integration, and ECM integration are not supported in offline mode.
About this task
The offline feature is enabled in Lotus Quickr 8.5.1 for Domino. It had not been available in the previous release of Lotus Quickr.
To set up IBM Lotus Quickr for offline use, perform the following steps:
1. Enabling Domino Off-Line ServicesParent topic: Configuring services for Lotus Domino
The first step in setting up IBM Lotus Quickr for offline use is enabling Domino Off-Line Services.
2. Creating certifier IDs for offline use
To set up authentication for offline members, you create one or more certifier IDs that can authenticate the members, and then attach each certifier ID to an Offline Security Policy document in the Offline Services database (doladmin.nsf). When members install places offline, the Domino server uses the certifier ID to generate new user IDs, and downloads the IDs to the members' computers. These IDs are used to authenticate the members when they synchronize the offline and online versions of places.
3. Creating an Offline Security Policy document
Create an Offline Security Policy document for each certifier you created for offline users. Offline Security Policy documents are stored in the doladmin.nsf database on the Lotus Domino server.
4. Translating LDAP distinguished names for offline use
Domino recognizes only distinguished names that contain the traditional Domino "CN,"OU," "O," and (optionally) "C" components. If the distinguished names of external members in an LDAP directory do not follow this model and you use Domino Off-Line Services with IBM Lotus Quickr, you must use qpconfig.xml settings to translate users' names into a format that Domino recognizes, and then translate those names back into their original LDAP format.
5. Configuring offline use for specific environments
Specific configuration steps are required if you use IBM Network Dispatcher, Sun Java System Portal Server, or CA SiteMinder in your IBM Lotus Quickr environment.
6. Performing optional offline configuration tasks
Optionally you can use an alternate Web server for offline software installation, enable offline place encryption, enable IBM Lotus Quickr sign in passwords for offline use, or hide the work offline link.
