Setting up HCL Nomad in the cloud

Follow these steps to set up HCL Nomad if you use IBM SmartCloud® Notes® for mail.

Before you begin

  • Make sure you meet the Requirements.
  • Make a note of your mail server name, which you need to complete this procedure. To determine your mail server name, for example, Mail2/Renovations, open your SmartCloud location document from your HCL Notes client.


  1. Download and install HCL Nomad.
    • Install Nomad for Android from the Google Playstore.
  2. Copy your Notes ID file to your device.
    Tip: See whether your ID file is in a vault: from the Notes client, click File > Security > User Security. You see the following text in the Security Basics tab when your ID is in a vault: This ID file has been backed up into vaultxxxx. If you don't see this text, make a local copy of the ID on your device.

    To make a local copy of your Notes ID on an Android device, follow instructions from the manufacturer on how to transfer a file. Some examples are email, Google Drive, or USB transfer.

  3. Open Nomad on your device.
  4. Complete the Client Configuration page that opens and then click Next:
    1. In the Your name field, enter the name associated with your Notes ID, for example, Samantha Daryn.
    2. In the Domino server name field, enter your Domino® mail server, for example, Mail2/Renovations.
  5. Read the Terms and Conditions and click Agree.
  6. If prompted to enter a server address, enter the DNS name for your mail server. The DNS name is one of the following, depending on your geographic location:
    Geographic locationDNS server name
    North America
  7. Browse and select a local copy of the ID file that you copied to your device and provide the password. Click Next.
  8. Wait for the configuration to complete and the Home page to open.
