RE: Moving to Sametime 9

Sametime Standard 8.5.2 IFR1 Windows

Thanks for your input Ben. I hear what you're saying, and I was originally going to stick with ST8.5.2 but all I'm hearing is that they a) want to be able to use it on the smartphones and b) that they "may" want to move towards audio/video in meetings.

We also have issues apparently with Java and Windows 8 when trying to attend meetings. Sometimes it works, and other times it doesn't, even if one has the latest Java installed. They're asking me if this issue will be resolved if we upgrade Sametime. I don't know.

I agree that additional knowledge would be required for DB2 and WAS, and I don't have that knowledge. Their response would be "call support, we pay for it" if I did have an issue.

At this point, I just don't know where to start. The response John provided was extremely helpful because up until then I was having issues finding any documentation that would actually indicate how this had to be installed and configured. IBM told me a) speak to Sales and b) that the Zero to Hero document I did find was for a test environment only, not production.

I'm going to be installing everything on virtual servers. I've already given them a heads up that I will require more than one Windows 2008 server in order to do this. So, that's not really a big deal.

From what I've read so far I know that the order of installation is:
Sametime System Console
Community Server
Sametime Proxy Server
Sametime Advanced Server
Sametime Meeting Server
Media Manager

But since we aren't going AV yet, I can leave out the Media Manager. I've been told I can add that later.

In reading the link that John provided, it appears I would need all of the other components I've listed because Advanced Server would provide the ability to remote control a workstation if needed. Currently, starting a meeting in ST8.5.2 allows a participant to share their screen and somene else to take control. We've used this in a one on one situation for remote control. Is this option no longer available as part of a meeting or do I definitely require Advanced Server?

I read that WAS, DB2 and SSC are all installed on one server.
And I have to install the Community Server on it's own Domino Server. What about the other components?

Maybe I should hire you Ben. :)
