How I installed Sametime 10 Limited Use

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
  • Mongo DB 3.6.5 (Download Link)
  • Mongo Compass addon (Download Link)

As stated in the guide, when installing Websphere 8.5.5.0, 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 1.8.9.4. 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
  • persistent chat
  • offline chat

Everything runs only on one virtual machine, that is:

  • Domino server 9.0.1 FP10
  • Sametime Community Server V10.0
  • Sametime Proxy Server V10.0
  • DB2
  • Mongo DB
  • WAS 8.5.5 FP14
Persistent chat on ST client
