Lotus Domino R5 Web Server Administration
Lotus Training Overview

During this course you will install and configure the Domino Web Server for both Domino database and HTML file access by Browsers. As the course progresses, you will build a complete Web site that lets users register to use the site, participate in a discussion, and search the entire site for information.

Security is a major concern of the course, covering general Domino security as well as Web-specific security mechanisms such as user and server authentication using SSL and X.509 digital certificates.

You will install and configure Domino Off-Line Services so Browser clients can work in Domino databases while disconnected from the Internet.

To help manage the server, you will configure Web-related server statistics and events, and create a server probe that will alert you when the server is overloaded or down.

Lotus Training Learning Objectives

In this course, you will learn how to:

  • describe the role of the Domino Web Server (HTTP server task)
  • install and configure the HTTP server task
  • secure Domino databases and protect HTML files
  • create directory mapping and redirection documents
  • create a virtual server
  • register users using Domino Administrator and configure a self-registration application
  • configure both basic password and session-based authentication and define an authentication realm
  • configure the server to run SSL and create X.509 digital certificates for session security and user authentication using the Domino Certificate Authority utility
  • provide a site search facility to include both Domino databases and HTML files using the Inxight Summarizer for Domain Searches
  • use the Notes Client, Domino Administrator, Domino Designer, and the Domino Web Administrator to configure and maintain the Domino Web Server
  • configure the server to support iNotes clients for off-line access to Domino databases
  • boost server performance and reliability
  • configure Web-related statistics collection, event monitoring, server probes, and event notification
  • log server task activity as well as server hits using the Extended Log File format.
Lotus Training Audience

This course is part of a series of courses. Follow these paths to master all aspects of the Domino Server, Domino Web Server, Domino Administrator, Lotus Notes, and Notes/SMTP mail administration:

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

This course is designed for new Domino Web Server administrators who are responsible for configuring the Domino Server to support Web Browsers and who have:

  • a working knowledge of Web technology, including basic HTML, TCP/IP addressing, and DNS operation
  • experience installing and configuring any HTTP server
  • extensive experience using the Notes Client (R5) and a modern Browser
  • the ability to navigate in Domino Administrator (R5) and Domino Designer (R5).
