If the user is in the local sametime buddylist the awareness appears in the Domino Directory and Mail file. But if the users is not in the buddy list awareness does not appear in mail file or Domino directory.
Awareness works fully from Domain A -> Domain B but awareness only works from Domain B -> Domain A if the user is int the local sametime contact list.
I have already created DA databases in both domains with replica copies of the names.nsf
verified connections to other servers in sametime.log. No E Server or other connection related errors appear.
Communityconfig.txt in both domains list servers.
2 7.5.1 CF1 sametime servers
1 8.0 sametime server
1 8.0.1 sametime server
Also tried adjusting VP_SECURITY_LEVEL=0 did not work
Entered a PMR with IBM but still no resolution.
