This topic explains how to use the Transporter Management Console or the Transporter Management Shell to configure a Free/Busy Connector.

Before You Begin

Complete the procedures in the following topics before you configure a Free/Busy Connector:

Verify that the local Notes ID has Reader or higher access in the Local Free Time Info application's (busytime.nsf) access control list (ACL) and can access the Lotus Domino server that is running excalcon.exe.

To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated Exchange Server Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server.


To use the Transporter Management Console to configure a Free/Busy Connector

  1. Launch the Transporter Management Console.

  2. Select the Directory Connector that you want to configure and then click the Properties option on the Action pane. Figure 1 shows Free/Busy Connector properties.

  3. Enter or select the following information on the General tab:

    Days of Free/Busy information   Identify how many days of information will be retrieved.

    Maintain information in cache (seconds)   Select how often the user's Free/Busy information should be updated on the Exchange server. If a user's schedule is requested and this value is set to 900 seconds (15 minutes), any additional requests for that user's schedule within the next 15 minutes will be retrieved from the cache.

    Timeout (seconds)   Identify how long the Exchange server should wait before timing out when trying to connect to the Lotus Domino Free/Busy server.

    Domino server running the Excalcon.exe task   Type the hierarchical Lotus Domino server name (Example: Server01/Contoso) for the server running the Excalcon.exe task.

    Notes Password   Type the Notes ID password for the local Lotus Notes client.

    Confirm Password   Confirm the Lotus Notes ID password.

  4. Click Apply to save these changes.

  5. Switch to the Advanced tab.

  6. Click Add, and then type the name of the SMTP domain associated with the Domino user's e-mail addresses. Click OK to save changes.

  7. Repeat step 6 for any adjacent Domino SMTP domains that contain Free/Busy information that can be retrieved by the Domino server running the Excalcon.exe task.
