By default, support for IPv6 addressing is disabled in the version of IBM
® Sametime that runs on Linux
® SuSE operating systems; you must enable IPv6 support in the "ststart" script used by Sametime on a Linux
Before you begin
Previous releases of Sametime did not support IPv6 addressing. Because the Linux
SuSE operating system already supported IPv6 by default, it was necessary to specifically disable IPv6 for Sametime on those servers. If you want to support the use of IPv6 addresses with Sametime on a Linux
SuSE server, you must re-enable support for IPv6 by modifying the ststart
This task is needed only for Linux
- On the community server, open a command window and navigate to the Sametimedata directory (for example, /local/notesdata).
- Open the ststart script so you can edit it.
- Comment out the following statements by inserting the # character at the beginning of each line:
if [ -f /etc/SuSE-release ]; then
The statements should now look like this:
#if [ -f /etc/SuSE-release ]; then
# export IBM_JAVA_OPTIONS
- Save and close the file.
- Restart the community server.
What to do next
Proceed to Installing and setting up a stand-alone Community Services multiplexer
