Follow these guidelines when planning the deployment of IBM
® Meeting servers.
For security, IBM
recommends that you configure an HTTPS environment using SSL encryption for all Sametime
Meeting Server deployments.
If you will be supporting the use of LiveNames in your Sametime
deployment, you should deploy all Sametime
Meeting Servers, Sametime
Proxy Servers, and Sametime
Advanced Servers within the same subnet, It is suggested that you configure WebSphere
® 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.
Sametime Classic Meetings
Classic meetings are legacy meeting features that run on Sametime
8.0.x and 7.5.1 servers on the Domino
® platform. When you download the Sametime
85x installation package, the Classic Meeting server is part of the community server installation zip/tar file. This product documentation focuses on information about the Sametime
Meeting Server running on WebSphere
Application Server, but you will find some references to classic meetings for features that can be configured for either type of meeting server.
For other information about administering Sametime
Classic Meetings, refer to the information center that was included with your release of Sametime
