Exclamation IMPORTANT, In need of a Domino BES Install Guide

Please Login to Remove!

So I was thrown into a project since I'm the BES guy at our company but the only experience I have is with Exchange 2003 and BES. I've never seen Domino before but yet we have a client that wants a new Domino server and BES in his location. I've downloaded the IBM Lotus Notes and Domino 8 Deployment Guide but it might as well be Greek to me. I also have a copy of Domino from IBM so I installed a 2003 server and installed Domino on it, that was making me pull out my white hairs from my face on my own alone. We have a meeting with the client this week.

The words, I don't understand Domino and don't know that I can do this doesn't work with my company so I'm PRAYING that someone has a guide on it they can post or send me.

Thanks!!.

There is no single straight guide for installing "Domino BES" dude. This is huge for the green you, sure you don't want to talk to your boss?

I already told the CEO that I can't figure this out. I haven't slept since Thursday but maybe 3 hours because I've been reading every doc I can find and printing out everything I can possibly find. It took 4 trips to my car to get all the binders of stuff I've printed out and was reading this weekend. He gave me until Tuesday to know this like I know Exchange. If I can get some decent doc's on Installing and Administering Domino then I believe the rest will fall in place as the install docs for BES on Domino doesn't look that different from Exchange.

Buy CBT's for Domino and see if your CEO will hire a consultant to come in and have your back. And go to the bookstore and buy the book "Eat or be eaten, the true story of corporate warfare"

It sounds like you're being given a task in which you're expected to fail (who wouldn't?) success here is completely based on luck and you need to go down gracefully.

Good domino books are domino in a nutshell (although older) as well as the "Special edition" series. IBM has a buncha redbooks as well.

What I would do, would be to purchase the book "Professional blackberry" which caters to the domino centric BES environment.

Get the book

I've been downloading redbooks like crazy, nothings helping at this point. I don't have time to purchase any books as I just got a call from my boss saying that we're meeting with the client this afternoon and I need to know this inside and out by then.

My report to Boss has my back on this, the CEO I'm not sure on. I just reinstalled Domino on the spare laptop I'm using but it's still not getting me anywhere. I've already cleaned out my desk in case of the worse.

Dude have some confidence. I'd say install R6 of Domino as there are more books out there (and I think it's still actively supported)

Domino is all based on documents, such as connection documents, etc.. It's a different way of thinking but better in some ways than Exchange.

Get on Efnet (IRC) and go to #notes, your first task is to understand domino enough to be able to route mail. Once that's done, setting up BES is easy. He's expecting you to learn something in a week which a lot of people base their careers around.

Why does he not want to set up BES on Exchange? It seems that you are better suited for an exchange shop.

It's for a client. We are an Exchange shop. I've been on Efnet when I was able to as well as reading as much as possible. I even brought the damn redbooks to my kids baptism this weekend and was reading them during service.

OK, so the domino environment already exists and is working properly? You guys are just hired to implement BES? Dude that's much easier. Just grab Professional Blackberry and you will get the basics for setup. Domino is a mountain of info (as is exchange) so my suggestions are to learn as much about BES as you can and then backfill with domino knowledge based on what touches what.

A domino/BES server already exists in another location. I need to put a new one in at the new location.

Replacement or additional? You have much less of a problem than I thought I originally thought you needed to build a domino environment including a BES server. That, would have been a BEAR to tackle all by yourself. Adding another BES would be much easier. Do you guys have Tsupport?

Additional to to the one that's in another country. I'm not sure how the network is configured or designed. I wasn't in that meeting but had to write up the RFP for it. I'll know more about things after I speak to the higher ups.

They will have Tsupport as I told them it's going to to be min of T4 support even though it's only going to be 300 users.

Great.

If you run into any issues along the way or need any advice feel free to PM me.

Nothing worse than getting thrown into something without any help.

Tx3 really is the sweet price point... for any customers we have that need any more, we have them contact us and we escalate directly with our TAM. Perhaps go that venue and drum up some extra revenue for your company as a reseller / SI
