Manual Grouping of Nodes is supported. Each node represents a physical entity. Only 1 level of grouping is possible. The group name can be edited by the administration.
The Group is shown in a Tree View (or equivalent). Initially only the group name is shown.
When the subscriber changes to a different Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony switch, the authentication reference/token/ticket is automatically forwarded, so the subscriber does not need to log on a second time.
The windows that belong to the previously selected switch stay operable, and the name of the related Lotus Sametime Unified Telephony switch is displayed in the title bar of each.
Unauthenticated subscribers who attempt to access a resource are diverted to an authentication service, and returned only after a successful sign-on.
