This topic discusses managing IBM
® Directories for multiple IBM
After you have installed a new Sametime
® server, the administrator should determine how to manage the Directory for the Sametime
Use these recommendations to manage Domino
Directories in multiple Sametime
- If the Sametime server is installed into a Domino environment that uses only a single Domino Directory, the Directory in which all Sametime servers are registered must be replicated to each Sametime server.
- If the Sametime server is installed into a Domino environment that uses multiple Domino Directories, the primary Domino Directory (the Directory in which the Sametime server is registered) should be replicated to the Sametime server.
Directory Assistance should be set up on the Sametime server to access the other Domino Directories of interest in the environment. The Sametime server can use Domino Directory Assistance to obtain all needed Directory information from the other Directories used in the environment. Ideally, the Directory Assistance database should point to a Directory server that is dedicated to providing Directory services. However, it is not a requirement that Directory servers be used in a Sametime community that includes multiple Sametime servers.
For information on setting up Directory Assistance on the Sametime server, see your Domino server Administration documentation. Use the same procedures to set up Directory Assistance on a Sametime server that you use to set up Directory Assistance on a Domino server. The Domino Administration documentation is available from the Documentation Library at the following Internet location: http://www.lotus.com/ldd/doc (and also in the Help subdirectory of the Domino server on which Sametime is installed).
- Optionally, in a Domino environment that uses multiple Domino Directories, an Extended Server Directory Catalog can be set up on the Sametime server to enable the server to access Directory information from all directories of interest in the environment. For more information on setting up an Extended Server Directory Catalog for use with Sametime, see Alternate ways to share Directory information across domains.

community across multiple Domino
domains, see Extending a single Sametime community across multiple Domino domains
