Installing a standalone Sametime Connect Client on a Citrix Server
1. Install the Sametime Connection Client as you would any Sametime Connect Client. See Installing the Sametime Connect Client from a CD
2. On the Citrix server, open the Access management console.
3. Go to Ctrix resources > Presentation server > Applications.
4. Right click Applications and select New > Publish Application.
Click Add and then select the server.
Delete the default users (anon001-anon010) which are created when you installed the Citrix server.
Create new users for your team. Do not add your users to Anonymous group
Installing an Embedded Sametime client with a Notes Client on a Citrix server
The basic steps for installing a Notes client on a Citrix Presentation server appear below.
Step #1 : Installation of the Notes client
a. Log on to the Citrix server (directly, not remotely) as Administrator.
b. Launch the Notes client installer.
c. During the installation, select the Single User Install. Set the Notes Directory to c:\lotus\notes and the data directory to c:\lotus\r8clienttemplate, where "c:" represents a directory on the local Citrix machine.
d. If you are prompted to set Notes as your default Mail Program, select Yes.
Step #2 : Move and modify notes.ini
a. The notes.ini file is placed in the default Windows directory (for example, c:\windows). Manually move this file from the Windows directory to the c:\lotus\r8clienttemplate directory.
Once you complete the initial installation process, each user that logs on to the Citrix server receives a copy of this notes.ini file.
b. After moving the file, modify it with Notepad to include the following lines: where "w:\" represents the standard user's home drive assignment.
Note: Add any additional notes.ini parameters that you would like to distribute to all users to this file as well.
Step #3 : Set security permissions
Set security permissions on the c:\lotus\r8clienttemplate directory to allow all users Read access to this directory. This permission allows users to copy the files and folders from this directory to their individual home directory.
a. To do so, right-click the folder and select Security.
b. Add or Change the "Everyone" group to have reader access.
Step #4 : Configure Logon Scripts for the users
Note: The changes made in this step will apply to all users because these logon scripts are run for each user that logs on to the Citrix server. The virtual drive letter that maps to the user's home profile directory (C:\Documents and Settings\) can be any letter you choose (W is used below), but the home profile directory has to be local to the Citrix Terminal Server. Any Lotus Notes client issues that arise from mapping the virtual drive letter to a directory on a remote file server, instead of to a directory on the local Citrix server, are not supported by IBM Lotus Support. Refer to technote 1086958 for more information on use of remote data directories.
a. Using Notepad, edit or create the file %systemroot%\Application Compatibility Scripts\RootDrv2.cmd
b. Add the following line, where W is the standard user's home drive assignment:
c. Save and close the file.
a. Using Notepad, edit or create the file %systemroot%\system32\usrlogn2.cmd
b. Add the following lines, where w is the standard user's home drive assignment:
if not exist w:\notes md w:\notes
if not exist w:\notes\data md w:\notes\data
if not exist w:\notes\data\notes.ini xcopy /s c:\lotus\r8clienttemplate\*.* w:\notes\data
Step #5 : Publish the Notes client application
a. Open the Citrix Access Management Console
b. Expand Presentation Server -> , right-click Application, select New -> Publish application
c. During the publishing application, in the Location panel, set the Command line and Working directory to
d. Click OK to finish publishing.
a. Open a browser, go to http://citrix_server_name/Citrix/AccessPlatform/auth
b. Login with a user account who was allowed to access the application during publishing
c. Launch the Lotus Notes client using the application icon
