Setting up Secrets and Tokens authentication for instant messaging in iNotes®

If you want to use Secrets and Tokens authentication databases for your instant messaging security instead of IBM® Domino® Single Sign-On (SSO) Authentication, you must create a one-time replica of the Tokens database on the IBM® iNotes® server.

About this task

Because file names are case sensitive on UNIX, the Secrets database name used in this example must be entered exactly as STAuthS.nsf.

After you have replicated stauths.nsf from your IBM® Sametime® server to your Domino® server, open the Replication Settings dialog box for the database, click Other, and enable the setting Temporarily disable replication for this replica. This will prevent another version of the database from a Microsoft Windows system from overwriting the name change for the UNIX server.

To replicate stauths.nsf from the Sametime® server to the Domino® server directory, do the following:


  1. Using an IBM® Notes® client, click File > Open > Notes Application.
  2. Enter the name of the Sametime® server, for example, Sametime/Renovations.
  3. Enter the Secrets database filename: stauths.nsf
  4. Click Open.
  5. Choose FileReplicationNew replica.
  6. Enter the name of the Domino® server, for example, iNotes/Renovations.
  7. Ensure that the database is replicated to the data directory: ...\domino\data\stauths.nsf.
  8. Click OK to create the replica.
