Installing and Configuring Domino 10.1 on CentOS 7

Category IBM Domino CentOS Linux Admin Articles Technical

Just in time for Engage!

Although sadly I won't be there

Since the official release of IBM Domino 10.0.1, I have been "chomping at the bit" wanting to release a set of instructions on how to install it on a Linux machine.

Domino 10 is by far the easiest and most hassle-free version I have ever installed on a Linux machine.

I have written an instructional document entitled Installing and Configuring Domino 10.0.1 on CentOS 7 Enterprise Linux. I hope it helps alleviate some of the fear and confusion with regards to using Linux as your Domino server platform. The document is aimed at YellowHeads (having some experience with Domino installations on Windows) who are thinking about stepping into the world of Linux. Even though it is aimed specifically at CentOS 7, the instructions should work for any RHEL or Debian-based (with some changes to handle DEB vs. RPM) linux version -although I must point out that the only supported Linux distributions are RHEL 7 and SLES 12.

Hope this helps!

Installing and Configuring IBM Domino 9 Social Edition on CentOS 6 Enterprise Linux

QuickImage Category IBM Domino CentOS Linux Admin Articles Technical Show-n-Tell Thursday

I realize it is been a while since I posted, I'm hoping this blast of content will make up for my absence.

Since the official release of IBM Notes and Domino 9.0 Social Edition a few weeks ago, I have been "chomping at the bit" wanting to release a set of instructions / videos on how to install it on a Linux machine.

During the beta program I had the opportunity to "play" with it quite a bit, and let me tell you this release is exceptionally good. It is also by far the easiest and most hassle-free version I have ever installed on a Linux machine -but there are still a few gotchas and watch-outs to be wary of.

I have written an instructional document entitled Installing and Configuring IBM Domino 9 Social Edition on CentOS 6 Enterprise Linux. I hope it helps alleviate some of the fear and confusion with regards to using Linux as your Domino server platform. The document is aimed at YellowHeads (having some experience with Domino installations on Windows) who are thinking about stepping into the world of Linux. The document is focused on 64 bit Linux, but calls out differences from 32 bit installations where necessary. Even though it is aimed specifically at CentOS 6, the instructions should work for any RHEL or Debian-based (with some changes to handle DEB vs. RPM) linux version -although I must point out that the only supported Linux distributions are RHEL 6 and SUSE 11.

I have also cut a series of 9 videos wherein I walk through the instructions step-by step and demonstrate how easy it really is to perform the installation. They are available on my YouTube channel, although I'm hoping I can talk David Leedy into including them on Notes In 9.

Hope this helps!

Installing Traveler on CentOS 6 - Part V

QuickImage Category Technical Linux Domino Traveler Admin

Part V - Installing Traveler

This is the 5th and final part of my series on installing IBM Lotus Domino and IBM Lotus Traveler on CentOS 6. In this video I walk you through the actual installation of IBM Lotus Traveler on your previously configured IBM Lotus Domino Server running on CentOS 6 Linux.

The installation and testing is so simple that this video really is sort of an anticlimactic finish to this series. The point being that with regard to installing Traveler, IBM has done it right and made something that jfw.

Installing Traveler on CentOS 6 - Part 1

QuickImage Category Linux Video Domino Traveler Show-n-Tell Thursday

Part I - Installing CentOS 6

With CentOS 6 being released just a couple of weeks ago, I figured it was a good time to demonstrate installing IBM Lotus Domino and IBM Lotus Traveler on this particular flavor of Linux. I would have done it sooner, but I was on holiday and frankly fishing, kayaking, driving awesome cars, and shooting stuff beats computer geekery every single time.

This video kicks off the series. In this video I demonstrate the installation of CentOS 6. I'm using a Virtual Machine for the installation. VM Software is Oracle's VirtualBox. I've set it up for a single processor, 20GB HDD, 128MB Video Memory and 3GB RAM.

In my next video in this series I will demonstrate the steps necessary to prepare CentOS 6 Environment for an IBM Lotus Domino installation.
