Planning for collaborative servers and portlets

Setting up a site with IBM® Domino® integration requires decisions about user directories, security, authentication, and performance. View some use cases that may help you make decisions leading to a successful Domino integration.

Performance considerations

When integrating Domino into your portal environment, consider performance when deciding how many and which servers you need.

For example, to use a Domino LDAP server as the user directory (repository) for the portal, install portal on a separate machine from the Domino LDAP server configured to support collaborative features in the portlets. The Domino LDAP server for the portal user directory should reside on a machine that is dedicated to serving the portal environment and all its users.

IBM i: It is recommended that a specific Domino server be created to run the collaborative components, and that it should reside on the same IBM i server as HCL Portal.
