® Sametime Community Server is configured to allow logins from a minimum client version.
About this task
By default, the Sametime Community Server allows logins from Sametime
® 7 clients and later. If you have older clients, including those running on Notes
® 6.5, 7.x and Notes
Basic 8.x, you must change the value of the ST_MINIMAL_CLIENT_VERSION setting in the sametime.ini file so they can continue to login.
All servers in the community must
have the same ST_MINIMAL_CLIENT_VERSION and same VP_SECURITY_LEVEL settings (described in "Connecting with older Community Servers on AIX, Linux, Solaris, or Windows") or they cannot communicate with one another.
- Open the sametime.ini file in a text editor. By default the file is located in the Sametime Community Server installation folder, for example, C:\Lotus\Domino\Sametime.ini.
- In the [Config] section of the sametime.ini file, specify the minimum Sametime client version that can log in to the server by providing one of the following values for the ST_MINIMAL_CLIENT_VERSION setting:
Table 1. Client versions
|Value||Sametime client version|
|0||Allows logins for all clients regardless of version |
|6510||Sametime 6.5.1 and all Sametime clients running on Notes 6.5, 7.x, and Notes Basic 8.x|
|7000||Sametime 7.0 (Default)|
The client version correlates to the version of the product, and the value is logged in stlog.nsf.
- Save and close the file.
What to do next
After you specify a minimum version, you can then specify other settings to control how the server responds to login requests from client versions earlier than the specified minimum version.
