Choosing a deployment configuration

The HCL Traveler server can be deployed using several different configurations.

The HCL Traveler server is installed and runs on an HCL Domino® server. The server must have access to the mail files of mobile HCL Traveler users. These mail files are either located on the same server as the HCL Traveler server or they are hosted on remote Domino servers. HCL Traveler uses a HCL Domino directory to find the home mail server for a HCL Traveler user. If the mobile users are not present in the local Domino directory (names.nsf), then HCL Domino directory assistance must be configured so that these users can be found in remote Domino directories.

HCL Traveler servers can be deployed as standalone servers, or if a highly available environment is required, as part of a pool of servers.

The HCL Domino server that is hosting each HCL Traveler service must have the HTTP web server component installed. This component is installed by default when you install your HCL Domino server.

HCL Domino service provider configuration is not supported by HCL Traveler. HCL Domino Service Provider setup does not allow servlets which are required for HCL Traveler to function.
