RE: Multiple Communities and meeting servers

What of my thinking that users without 'home' meeting servers will be able to attend meetings within Sametime client?
There is no need to use the home server field on person documents any more. This field only works for the Community server and not the WAS based Meeting server. The users could add the meeting server to their list of meeting servers, even better still would be for you to push them out via managed-settings.xml.

I think you would need to add all three meeting servers to each users client otherwise the client will not know how to log in to the two that are not added in your examples ie do they use HTTPS, will it use email and password to log in?

This is the scenario I envision.

User A in community US-1 with community server and meeting room server within that community.

User B in community US-2 with community server only, no meeting room server attached to that community.

User C in community CN with community server and meeting room server.

All 3 communities have community connectivity and IM/Presence are functional.

User C invites user A and B to a meeting room from within the sametime client by right-clicking the user names in the contact list.

User A and B both have "Sametime client meeting room" option set for "meeting room window" option in Sametime preferences.

In this scenario, A and B will receive the invitation from C to the meeting room server in the CN community, correct? And the users will be able to attend? Yes, that is correct. Will single sign-on come into play, will SSO token need to be setup for it to work? If SSO is necessary, but not functional can it still be made to work by manually configuring the CN community's meeting server in "Meeting Room Servers" and providing valid http/https credentials?

Are the three Community servers part of the same "community" ie can all users log into all the servers for chat and awareness? The three meeting servers will be part of the SSC's cell so SSO will be enabled unless you are setting the meeting servers up in their own cells which I see no point in doing. SSO will allow all users to log into all three meeting servers which is important so the LtpaToken cached in the client from authenticating via username and password or by Domino single sign on allows them access to all three Meeting servers.

You can add the users username and password in the client for each Meeting server but I see little point as SSO should be used.

Why three servers? Is a centralised approach not a better option for you? Less servers, you can cluster them as they will be situated locally to one another to provide resilience. Unless you are using AV then bandwidth should be negligible.
