You can extend a single IBM
® Sametime community across multiple IBM Lotus
® domains by cross-certifying the servers.
About this task
The example below describes the simplest way to cross-certify the two Sametime
® servers. In this example, the two Sametime
servers are Sametimeserver1/East and Sametimeserver2/West. To cross-certify these servers, the West organization certifier (/West) must obtain a cross-certificate for the East organization certifier (/East) and the East organization certifier must obtain a cross-certificate for the West organization certifier. These cross-certificates are stored in the Domino
Directories on the respective Sametime
For more information about cross-certification, see the Domino Administration Help
database, available in the Help directory of any Domino
administration documentation is also available from the Documentation Library at www.lotus.com/ldd/doc
- On Sametimeserver1/East, open the IBM Lotus Notes® client. From the Microsoft® Windows® desktop click Start -> Run and browse to C:\Sametime\nlnotes.exe before clicking OK.
- Click File -> Database -> Open and specify the Sametimeserver2/West server.
- When prompted for a cross-certificate, select OK.
- Repeat steps 1 through 3, but this time use the Notes® client on Sametimeserver2/West to access Sametimeserver1/East, and accept the cross-certificate from the Sametimeserver2/West server.
What to do next
Now that the servers are cross-certified, connect the communities
