If the Sametime 7.5.x, 8.0x server is part of a Meeting Services cluster managed by a Lotus Enterprise Meeting Server, the process for deploying Sametime Connect for Browsers is the same as described earlier ("Deploying Sametime 7.0 Connect for Browsers on a Sametime 7.5.x, 8.0x server") with the following exceptions:

  • If the Sametime server has already been added to the Meeting Services cluster controlled by EMS, you must remove it before deploying Sametime Connect for Browsers and re-add it to the cluster afterwards.
  • When you enable the Connect for Browsers link in a later step, it will be enabled for every server in the Meeting Services cluster. Therefore, you should deploy Sametime Connect for Browsers on every Sametime server in the cluster.
