Administrators must have a Person document in the Domino® Directory.

About this task

  1. Open the Sametime Administration Tool.
  2. From the Sametime Administration Tool, click LDAP Directory.
  3. Click LDAP Directory > Add Person.
  4. In the Person document, select the Basics tab.
  5. Enter the user's first, middle, and last name in the appropriate fields. Only the last name is required.

    You can use any of the following characters in a user name: A - Z, 0 - 9, dash (-), period (.), underscore (_), and space. Using other characters can cause unexpected results.

  7. Enter an Internet password for the person in the "Internet password" field. An entry in this field is required for the user to authenticate when accessing the Sametime Administration Tool. There are no restrictions on the number of characters used in the Internet password.
