Installation and Upgrade Information

Installing or upgrading to IBM Lotus Notes for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace by using Microsoft Windows Terminal Services is not supported.

Installing IBM Lotus Notes for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0 for the First Time

Upgrading to IBM Lotus Notes for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0

Installing IBM Lotus Notes for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0 for the First Time

For instructions on installing IBM Lotus Notes for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, see the DocWiki at http://docwiki.cisco.com/wiki/Cisco_Unified_MeetingPlace%2C_Release_6.x_--_Cisco_Unified_MeetingPlace_for_Lotus_Notes_Installation_and_Configuration.

Upgrading to IBM Lotus Notes for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0

With Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0, all Cisco Unified MeetingPlace integration components must be installed on a Cisco MCS server running a Microsoft Windows 2003 Server-based Cisco MCS operating system. Changing the operating system from the Windows 2000 Server-based version to the Windows 2003 Server-based version requires a new installation. Cisco Systems does not support upgrading the operating system from the Windows 2000 Server-based version to the Windows 2003 Server-based version.

Migrating to IBM Lotus Notes for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0 involves backing up specific data, installing the Windows 2003 Server-based operating system, reinstalling Cisco Unified MeetingPlace components, and restoring data. Refer to http://docwiki.cisco.com/wiki/Cisco_Unified_MeetingPlace%2C_Release_6.x_--_Upgrading_to_Cisco_Unified_MeetingPlace_Release_6.0.

For instructions on upgrading IBM Lotus Notes for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace, see http://docwiki.cisco.com/wiki/Cisco_Unified_MeetingPlace%2C_Release_6.x_--_Upgrading_to_Cisco_Unified_MeetingPlace_Release_6.0.

Note the following considerations:

Upgrading a legacy system to IBM Lotus Notes for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Release 6.0 requires a legacy third-party Windows server with system specifications comparable to Cisco MCS specifications required for the same deployment. For information on Cisco MCS specifications, go to http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/voiceapp/ps378/index.html.

Mixed-template environments are not supported; all users must be on the same IBM Lotus Domino server and template environment.

You must upgrade the integration server machine to Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing Release 6.0 before the IBM Lotus Notes for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace upgrade.

Limitations and Restrictions

Authentication Support

IBM Lotus Sametime Meetings Require Internet Browser Setting

Closed Caveats

Authentication Support

The only form of authentication supported by IBM Lotus Notes for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace is IBM Lotus Domino authentication with Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing configured to use MeetingPlace authentication. Other authentication methods supported by Web Conferencing, such as Windows Integrated Authentication, are not supported for use with IBM Lotus Notes for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace.

For instructions on configuring IBM Lotus Domino authentication with MeetingPlace authentication, see http://docwiki.cisco.com/wiki/Cisco_Unified_MeetingPlace%2C_Release_6.x_--_Cisco_Unified_MeetingPlace_for_Lotus_Notes_Installation_and_Configuration#Enabling_Domino_Authentication.

IBM Lotus Sametime Meetings Require Internet Browser Setting

In IBM Lotus Notes, when the Internet Browser field is set to Notes with Internet Explorer (the default setting), a user cannot attend an IBM Lotus Sametime meeting. To enable Sametime meetings, follow this procedure.

Procedure


Step 1 Log on to the IBM Lotus Notes client.

Step 2 On the Welcome page, move the pointer over a button or menu.

Step 3 Click Location > Edit Current.

Step 4 On the Settings for Location page, click the Internet Browser tab.

Step 5 On the Internet Browser tab, click Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Step 6 Save the configuration.
