Book Description

IBM’s® Practical, Hands-On Guide to Supporting and Administering Lotus Notes and Lotus Domino

This is the only book that focuses entirely on the specific technical, desk-side, and infrastructure issues that support professionals and administrators encounter when implementing and running Lotus Notes in production environments. Authored by one of IBM’s top Lotus experts, it draws on the firsthand experiences of IBM professionals working in hundreds of client environments. Mark Elliott has created a true “encyclopedia” of proven resolutions to common problems and has streamlined processes for infrastructure support. Elliott systematically addresses support solutions for all recent Lotus Notes and Domino environments.

Survival Guide for Lotus Notes and Domino Administrators is organized for rapid access to specific solutions in three key areas: client setup, technical support, and client software management. It brings together best practices for planning deployments, managing upgrades, addressing issues with mail and calendars, configuring settings based on corporate policies, and optimizing the entire support delivery process. Along the way, Elliott illuminates the administrative and support implications of the latest enhancements to Lotus Notes and Lotus Domino, in areas ranging from messaging to plug-in support.
