Question BES for Lotus Domino

Please Login to Remove!

Newb here, please be easy...

Here's what I have:
I am installing BES4 for Domino on a Windows Server 2003 Ent R2 SP2 Machine. I have IBM Domino running on a Linux Machine. In the requirements at the beginning of the installation document, it states that Domino must be running on the same machine as BES, which I thought was unusual considering everything that I had previously read proclaimed that it is recommended that the mail server be a separate server.

Now, Domino operates off of nsf databases. BES is asking for the DB2 database or the SQL database to connect to. I chose the DB2 database because it is also made by IBM, but I have no DB2 database on my linux server. I also found after selecting the DB2 Database, it has the options to select if the database is local or remote. I obviously used remote because it is on a different server, but I don't have any clue how I would connect BES to the Domino Server, especially since I don't have a DB2 database.

Is there a connector that I might need or is it even possible without installing the Domino Server on the Windows Server? I am extremely lost here and need as much help as I can get. I can also provide additional details upon request.

Thanks everyone in advance.
