Lotus Notes 8 Administration
Lotus Training Overview

During this course you will use Domino Administrator as you learn to perform Notes-specific administration tasks such as registering users and controlling Notes configuration using policies.

Lotus Training Learning Objectives

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • describe the primary administration concepts of Notes and Domino, including Domino Domain, Organization, Organizational Units, Domino Named Networks, Domino Directory, Registration Server, Home/ Mail Server, Administration Process, and Administration Server
  • set up Domino Administrator, configure Administration Preferences, and use Domino Administrator to manage Notes users
  • perform a basic Notes user registration to understand the outcomes of the process
  • create an Organizational Unit Certifier hierarchy
  • configure a Certifier ID to include contact information, ID/Password Recovery Information, multiple passwords, and support for alternate languages and names
  • implement the Certificate Authority process, migrate Certifier IDs to the Certificate Authority, and give administrators CAA and/or RA rights
  • define explicit and organizational policies with Registration, Setup, Desktop, Archiving, Security, and Mail Settings
  • register Notes users using all the options, including ID/Password Recovery Information, the CA Process, and Registration Settings
  • define Security Settings to set ECLs, encrypt local replicas, and set Mail security options, and enforce client security settings
  • use the Administration Process to automate user identity changes and to recertify expired certificates
  • lock out unauthorized users from servers and databases
  • enforce passwords and password changes and institute a custom password policy
  • recover a lost User ID or forgotten password
  • deploy local replica databases, a Mobile Directory Catalog, custom Welcome Pages, Bookmarks, and custom tips of the day
  • define a policy to control user Mail preferences
  • define policy hierarchies that inherit or enforce settings
  • track active Notes and other client users to ensure license compliance
  • update Notes software using Upgrade By Mail and Notes Smart Upgrade
  • administer the Notes Standard configuration client and the other applications that run in the Eclipse framework and create a Domino-based Eclipse Update Site.
Lotus Training Audience

This course is designed for administrators responsible for managing Notes clients.

Whereas the Lotus Domino 8 Administration Basics course covers general Domino Server installation and configuration, this course focuses on the administration of Notes clients.

This course is also distinguished from the Lotus Notes 8 Support course, which is designed for help desk personnel who do not have Domino Administrator or administrative rights to the Domino Server but who are responsible for installing, setting up, and supporting Notes clients. Depending on your responsibilities, you may need the additional knowledge presented in this course to learn the administrator side of supporting Notes clients.

While ideally you will have completed the Domino 8 Administration Basics course before taking this course, doing so is not required. The first Topic in this course reviews the necessary concepts of Notes administration and how to use Domino Administrator.

This course is part of a series of Domino administration training courses. Follow these paths to master all aspects of administering the Domino Server, Lotus Notes, and other clients:

Courses later in the series assume that you have mastered the content of earlier courses.

This course is designed for administrators who are responsible for supporting Lotus Notes clients and who:
  • may have never administered a Domino Server
  • are proficient Lotus Notes 7 users.

Courses later in the series assume that you have mastered the content of earlier courses.

This course is designed for administrators who are responsible for supporting Lotus Notes clients and who:
  • may have never administered a Domino Server
  • are proficient Lotus Notes 8 users.
You will find this course most useful if prior to this course you have:
  • studied the principles and operation of personal computer networking using TCP/IP in LAN/WAN/Internet environments
  • installed and supported the operating system used in this course (Windows XP Professional), as well as applications used by those systems
  • installed, administered, and supported network operating system server and workstation software.
You will find the course especially rewarding if you have already installed a Domino Server and a handful of Notes clients and have had some experience designing Domino databases.
