Installing IBM Connections

Select the IBM® Connections applications that you plan to use and install them in a clustered deployment.

An IBM Connections deployment consists of the following components:
  • WebSphere® Application Server nodes:
    • One node with IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment Manager (DM) installed.
    • One or more WebSphere Application Server nodes that can be federated into the DM cell. These nodes are hosts for cluster members.
  • A system with a database server installed.
  • An LDAP server.
  • A system with IBM HTTP Server installed.
Important: Before beginning the installation, you must understand the prerequisites for IBM Connections. For more information, see the Before installing topic and ensure that you meet all the conditions that are prescribed for your deployment environment.
