Content

For detailed system requirements for IBM Domino, IBM Domino Administrator, IBM Domino Designer, IBM Notes, and IBM iNotes, see: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=475&uid=swg27007909

IBM Lotus Notes Traveler 8.5.3 Upgrade Pack 2

Outline

Lotus Notes Traveler 8.5.3 Upgrade Pack 2 server must be installed on a Domino 8.5.3 server and supports two modes of operation: Standalone mode and High Availability mode.

Standalone mode uses a local embedded database on a Lotus Notes Traveler server and does not have High Availability support.

High Availability mode uses a relational database server as the common database between pooled Lotus Notes Traveler servers with an IP sprayer located in front of the Lotus Notes Traveler servers. This mode is typically configured with redundant database servers resulting in a system where the Lotus Notes Traveler service is not degraded when any server fails.


Domino Server Support

Lotus Notes Traveler 8.5.3 Upgrade Pack 2 running in Standalone mode may be installed on any of the following:

  • Domino 8.5.3 Enterprise Server
  • Domino 8.5.3 Messaging Server

Lotus Notes Traveler 8.5.3 Upgrade Pack 2 running in High Availability mode is only licensed to run on and may only be installed on the following:

  • Domino 8.5.3 Enterprise Server

Note that Domino 8.5.3 Messaging Server is not supported for Lotus Notes Traveler High Availability mode.

The xSP (Service Provider) configuration of Domino Server is not supported for any Lotus Notes Traveler configuration.

Lotus Notes Traveler 8.5.3 Upgrade Pack 2 requires Domino 8.5.3 Upgrade Pack 1. If this software has not been previously installed, it will automatically be installed during the installation of Lotus Notes Traveler.

Remote Mail Database Support

Lotus Notes Traveler server can connect to remote mail databases hosted by Domino 7.0.2 servers or above. The Domino remote mail server can be any operating system supported by Domino.

Mail File Template Support

Lotus Notes Traveler server supports Notes standard and iNotes mail file templates, version 6.5 and above.

Server Hardware Requirements

Feature

Requirement

Disk Space

Minimum of 500 MB of free disk space for database and log files.

Memory

The Lotus Notes Traveler server requires a minimum of 512 MB of free RAM. This is in addition to the memory required by the IBM Lotus Domino server itself. As more Lotus Notes Traveler users are registered with the service, the memory needed will increase and it is not uncommon for the total virtual memory required for Lotus Notes Traveler and Domino to exceed 2 GB of RAM. Thus, while 32-bit operating systems are supported, 64-bit operating systems are strongly recommended for all deployments with a significant number of users.

Network Protocols

Lotus Notes Traveler supports any network supported by a device that provides an HTTP/TCP or HTTPS/TCP connection between the device and the Lotus Notes Traveler server. Examples include: GSM, GPRS, 802.11x, and WiFi. In addition, Lotus Notes Traveler can utilize Short Messaging Service (SMS) for push notifications instead of HTTP/HTTPS.

Enterprise Database Requirements

Lotus Notes Traveler High Availability mode requires an enterprise database which is accessed by all Lotus Notes Traveler servers in a common service pool. The following enterprise databases are supported. See the database product documentation for information on their hardware and software requirements.
