Create a Lotus Notes User ID

To access Lotus Notes users' free and busy information, Calendar Connector requires access to Lotus Notes resources. Complete the following procedure to create a certified Lotus Notes ID file, which Calendar Connector will use to access the Lotus Notes Domino server and to create a Person document in the Lotus Notes Domino registration server's Name and Address Book (NAB).

Note   If you install Calendar Connector on a different computer from the connector for Lotus Notes, you must create a new user ID for Calendar Connector.

To create a user ID for the connector:

  1. Start the Lotus Domino Administrator program.
  2. On the File menu, click Tools, and then click Server Administration.
  3. Click People, and then click Register Person.
  4. Verify that you have a license for the user ID you are creating. If you meet the licensing requirements, click Yes.
  5. Type the administration password for the specified certifier, and then click OK.
  6. If the local server is not the registration server, click Registration Server, select the registration server, and then click OK. To select a different certifier, click Certifier ID, select the certifier, and then click Open. Type the administrator's password, and then click OK.
  7. In Security type, click North American or International.
  8. To change the expiration date of the certificate, in Certificate expiration date, type the date in the format mm-dd-yy, where mm is the month, dd is the day, and yy is the year. Then click Continue.
  9. In Last name, type a name for the connector (for example, Connector).

  11. Click the Mail icon, and then on the Mail type menu, click None.
