Configuring Lotus Notes directory for use with UnitySync2017-05-31 16:28:37
Lotus Notes / Domino UnitySync
- Minimum of Notes R5 server is required as an LDAP source for directory synchronization.
- An account that has add and delete access to the names.nsf database on the Notes server.
- Directory Catalog is not supported.
To configure LDAP for use with UnitySync, the following steps will be required:
- First, open the server’s address book as an administrator using Notes client. From there select Server/Servers and open the properties of the server you plan to sync with.
- LDAP can be configured by selecting the Ports/Internet Ports/Directory tabs from the server properties screen. You must make sure that LDAP is enabled and that it has a valid TCP/IP port that does not conflict with other software. The Name & Password authentication must be set to Yes.
- Save the Server configuration screen and select Server/Configurations from the left side. If there is not a configuration entry for your server click Add Configuration. Otherwise edit what’s already in place.
- If this is a new configuration we recommend using a global configuration by setting Yes to “Use these settings as the default settings for all servers”. Once this is checked an LDAP tab will appear.
- Select the LDAP tab. Edit the screen and make sure “Allow LDAP users write access” is set to Yes. You can take the defaults for all other options.
- If you have just enabled LDAP you may have to restart the server or consult the Lotus Notes documentation on starting the LDAP service.
Logon ID Syntax
Lotus Notes is a direct translation of the FULL user id. There is only one Organization field. All other structure fields are usually Organizational Unit fields. Use the cn=name,o=org format as your UnitySync Login ID.
