Setting up Directory Assistance enables web browser users to authenticate against entries in the LDAP directory when accessing databases on the Sametime server that require basic password authentication. Sametime
® Connect clients do not require Directory Assistance.
About this task
Because Sametime uses Directory Assistance to access an LDAP server, you must ensure that a Directory Assistance database exists on the Sametime
server either by creating a new database or replicating an existing one. Use the same process to set up Directory Assistance for a Sametime
server as you would for a Domino
® server without Sametime
Follow these steps to create a new Directory Assistance database.
- Open a Lotus Notes® client.
- Choose File -> Database -> New.
- Select the Sametime server (or select the Local server if you are running Sametime on a Windows® server and you opened the Notes® client on the server).
- Create the Directory Assistance database on the server using the template DA50.NTF. Provide a database name and file name (for example, da.nsf) for the Directory Assistance database.
What to do next
To replicate a database instead of creating a new one, create a new replica of the Directory Assistance database on the Sametime
server. Then create a Connection document to schedule replication of the database. See your Domino
server administration documentation for information on replication.
