Lotus Notes 6.5 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:

  • create an Organizational Unit Certifier ID and configure it for ID/password recovery and alternate language names
  • define explicit and organizational policies and Registration, Setup, Desktop, Archiving, and Security Settings policies
  • register Notes users
  • track active Notes client users to ensure license compliance
  • upgrade Notes software using Upgrade By Mail and Notes Smart Upgrade
  • deploy custom Welcome Pages, Bookmarks, and databases
  • enforce passwords and password changes
  • use the Administration Process to automate user identity changes and to recertify expired certificates
  • recover a lost User ID or forgotten password using Password Recovery.
Lotus Training Audience

This course is part of two series of courses designed for both advanced help desk personnel and Notes/Domino administrators.

Help desk personnel. This course is distinguished from the Lotus Notes 6.5 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 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.

Notes/Domino administrators. This course follows the Lotus Domino 6 Administration Basics course, focusing on Notes clients:

Whereas the Lotus Domino 6 Administration Basics course covers general Domino Server installation and configuration, this course focuses on the administration of Notes clients.

Lotus Training Course duration

This course is sold as a 2-day course, but it is unlikely that you can finish all the topics in two days.
