Cisco Unity Design Process—Presales Designing with the Directory and Mailstore in Domino
Domino Directory Usage • Domino directory • Is a Notes-formatted database file (.nsf extension) • Contains server definitions • Contains mail file (mailbox) definitions • Mail files are linked with user accounts in Domino directory “person documents.” • There is typically just one person document for every Notes user.
About Message Routing with Domino • Message routing in a Domino network can bedone in one of two ways: • Connection agreement • Notes named network or Domino named network
Domino Named Network Domino Domain DNN = TCP/IP DNN = SPX Domino servers are grouped into Domino named networks within a Domino domain.
A Domino Domain Is Not the Same as a Windows Domain Domino Domain 1 Active Directory Domain 1 Active Directory Domain 2
Windows Domains, Domino Domains, and Server Placement • Windows domains • Cisco Unity must always be a member of a Windows domain. • Domino domains • Cisco Unity can service more than one Domino domain. • Domino domains exist in addition to Windows domains.
Domino Operating Issues That Affect the Cisco Unity Design • Lotus Domino Unified Communications (DUCs) services • The Lotus DUCs service is supported on: • Windows 2000 or 2003 • IBM AIX operating system • Voice boards will not work on a Windows 2003 operating system.
Summary • Notes refers to the client and Domino to the server; the directory may be called the “name and address book” (NAB). • The Domino directory contains server and mailbox definitions. • Replication between Domino servers is controlled with connection documents. • Message routing in a Domino network can be accomplished by using connection agreement or NNNs. • A Domino domain is not the same as a Windows domain. • Domino servers are grouped into DNNs within a Domino domain. • Cisco Unity can service more than one Domino domain.
