® Meeting Server. Read the system requirements to ensure that you know the minimum supported software requirements.
Proxy Servers within the same subnet. It is suggested that you configure
® Application Server Network Deployment with a single subnet for network traffic. You can use one Network interface card (NIC) on a physical machine or logical partition (LPAR). You can also reference a single Domain name system (DNS) server in the network configuration for the physical machine or LPAR.
1. Creating a database for the Sametime Meeting Server
Before installing the IBM Sametime Meeting Server on AIX
, Solaris, or Windows
, create a database to store its data.
2. Connecting Sametime Meeting Server to a DB2 database
Use the Sametime System Console to connect to the Sametime Meeting Server, Sametime Gateway, or Sametime Advanced database before installing the server from the System Console. If you installed the server without using the System Console (as is the case with the Sametime
Meeting Server on IBM
i and Sametime
Gateway on any platform), do this step before registering the server with the System Console.
3. Preparing to install a Sametime Meeting Server
Use the Sametime System Console to prepare to install a Sametime Meeting Server by pre-populating values required for installation.
4. Installing a meeting server on AIX, Linux, Solaris, or Windows
Run the installation program on the machine where you plan to install a Sametime
5. Verifying a Sametime Meeting Server installation
Log in to the Sametime Meeting Server to verify that the installation was successful.
6. Clustering Sametime Meeting Servers
Configuring a cluster of IBM Sametime
Meeting Servers involves several tasks, including synchronizing system clocks, configuring the cluster settings, and configuring an IBM WebSphere
proxy server for the cluster, as well as optionally deploying an IBM
Load Balancer in front of the cluster.
7. Deploying Sametime Meeting Server and Sametime Proxy Server on the same computer
When you deploy an IBM Sametime
Proxy Server and a Sametime
Meeting Server on the same machine using the same server host name, conflicts with cookies that are used by each server can occur. If you install both servers on the same machine, then configure the Sametime
Proxy Server with a host alias as a different host name.
8. Preparing the Sametime Meeting server for users
Before deploying clients, set up the preferences and login requirements that suit your environment.
