See the Verse On-Premises System Requirements on the HCL Customer Support site.
Installing and configuring
To install and configure IBM Verse™ On-Premises on a Domino® mail server, complete the following steps.
Configuring integration with IBM Sametime
Starting with IBM Verse On-Premises 1.0.3, integration with IBM Sametime 9.0.1 FP1 is supported.
Enabling the new calendar event form
A new calendar event form design offers an improved experience for creating and managing events in the calendar.
Enabling users to add photos of themselves
You can enable Verse to use the Gravatar service to display photos of users. Users upload images to the Gravatar service and the client's server connects to Gravatar to display the photos in the "important to me" bar.
Enabling password and Notes ID options
As of Verse 1.0.8, features are available in Security preferences for users to change the passwords they use to log in to Verse, change their Notes ID passwords, and manage their Notes IDs. This topic describes the configuration requirements for each of these features.
Enabling improved integration of forwarding addresses
The improved integration of forwarding addresses feature introduced in release 1.0.7 is off by default. Follow these steps to enable it for your users.
Enabling replying to and forwarding messages from archived mail
If your users use another client such as IBM® iNotes® to archive mail on a server, or if you archive mail for them, as of release 1.0.8, users can see their archived mail in Verse. By default, users can't reply to or forward messages from a mail archive, but you can enable this capability.
Controlling the concurrent iCalendar imports allowed
Use the server notes.ini setting VOP_ConCurr_Upload_iCal to control the number of iCalendars that can be imported concurrently into users' Verse calendars. By default, 30 concurrent imports are allowed.
Integrating with Connections
You can configure IBM Verse™ On-Premises to work with IBM Connections™ 6 or 5.5 CR2.
Integrating with Box
If you've purchased Box, follow this procedure to enable users to share Box files and folders from IBM Verse™.
Deploying extensions
You can deploy extensions to enhance the functionality and experience of Verse On-Premises. To do so, you register your own web applications with Verse that declare one or more extensions.
If you need to uninstall Verse™ On-Premises application files, simply stop the Domino Web server, remove the Verse On-Premises .jar files, and then restart the Domino Web server.
