We have completed the first month when HCL fully took over from IBM Collaboration software (Domino, Notes, Sametime, Connections …..). Information comes from all sides, we gain access to individual systems.
Everything is not going smoothly, but from my own experience I know that the people of each teams are trying to help. I wish everything was successful and thanks to all HCL people and customers for patience.
We get a lot of information, which is gradually updated, so I tried to prepare some interesting sources.
I have received some questions from customers about new features in Sametime 10 Limited Use. Some would like to either upgrade or use this tool.
So last week I did the installation. And here are just a few informations. I used this IBM Sametime 10 Limited Use Installation and Administration Guide LINK. With this guide everything went very easy.
What did I use?
Microsoft Windows 2012 server (64-bit)
Domino 9.0.1.FP10 (32-bit)
IBM Sametime Community Server V10.0 Windows Multilingual
IBM Sametime Proxy Server V10.0 Windows Multilingual
As stated in the guide, when installing Websphere 22.214.171.124, I also installed FP14. Here I had to go back one step. I originally installed everything on the second “D” drive and there was a problem with validating the Websphere server when installing Sametime Proxy. Therefore, I recommend installing everything on disk “C”.
The use of Installation Manager 1.8.6 was recommended in the manual. I left the automatic update enabled and I used version 126.96.36.199. There was no problem with this version.
I had some delay when silently installing the Sametime proxy server. Respectively when editing the response file IP.rsp. But at the same time, Petr Kunc also performed the installation at that time, so he provided me with his file, which I modified for my needs and installed according to this manual LINK. Installation has already taken place quite quickly. After installation, I had only a few problems, but they were caused only by my fault. I had a typos when editing xml files. I fixed them and everything worked immediately.
Now it works for me:
chat on Notes client, web client, ST client, mobile client
Everything runs only on one virtual machine, that is:
The release of Sametime Limited Use V10 is scheduled for June 14th. HCL does a lot of work on upgrading Sametime and certainly many of us can’t wait to start using Sametime Limited.
So what can we look forward to?
Modern user interface with alternating chat bubbles and the conversation list as the primary view
Persistent chat including groups with the ability to receive messages immediately and on all clients (desktop, mobile, and browser) concurrently
Seamless, offline chat with automatic queuing and receiving of messages instantly after logging into any client
Brand new React-based, lightweight web client
Domino® 64-bit support (Windows 32-bit will ship first, followed closely by Windows 64-bit, and then Linux 64-bit)
Server-side chat history (Mongo will initially be required for server-side chat history; Domino to follow at a later time)
Chat configuration settings allowing the ability to turn persistence on or off, establishing which users or groups of users receive persistence, and specifying for the duration of chat history storage
Fully compatible with Sametime 9.0.1 FP1
