RE: Multiple Communities and meeting servers

The servers have presence/chat awareness of each other, yes. I think that is what you mean.

However, there are 3 different SSC's, and so, I gather, 3 different "cells" (sorry 'cell' is a new term for me in ST context, so I'm not sure I am using it correctly... I take it to mean....errrr...ummm.... the management scope of and that right?)..... since there are 3 SSC, I am not sure it is possible for use SSO, but so far in the limited testing I've done it does at least _seem_ to work with http/https auth (using manual user email address and internet password field from domino directory)

Yes that's three different cells. If the DNS domain matches and they are using the same LDAP or multiple LDAPs (federated repositories) then SSO will work, you need to import the token into each.

Best to test SSO from a web browser logging into meeting server 1 and then changing the url to meeting server 2 and so on and in reverse.

Three servers....why.... yes... <sigh> politics... history... territory... I'm sure you get the picture, so while difficult and sub-optimal to have 3 environments and try to connect them.....probably still easier than the alternative political/mindset shift..... It might...might be possible to get them consolidates to 1 single SSC... but there are multiple domino domains and ST community servers involved...servicing different user bases... is that even possible?

If each Community server has a different LDAP server connected then only users in that LDAP will be able to authenticate meaning that your other users will not be able to use the Community server or Meeting server. To get around this you could federate all three LDAP servers into WAS and create three LDAP documents in stconfig.nsf (not forgetting da.nsf).

Again, thank you so much for taking your time to answer my mass of questions. You are really helping these ideas gel in my head.... I think I had it kinda sorta right... but I had so many "if this works the way I think" caveats chained together it felt like I was building a house of cards.

It will be quite difficult to advise accurately in the forums because it's not really enough to go on. You would be far better consolidating into 1 SSC/cell and then federating your LDAPs into it. There may be a technical reason why this won't work and if all three users cannot log into all three Meeting servers and are stuck with just the one then they cannot all join one server to collaborate together.

It may be best that you email me directly so you can share some topology diagrams with me etc.
