Introduction

Chapter 4 of the CMN User Guide provides an introduction to CMN’s Free/Busy Connector (“FBC” or “F/B Connector”) and its subcomponents, and a high-level overview of the data flow in both directions: Notes queries for Outlook F/B data (and the Exchange reply), and vice-versa. The F/B chapter in the User Guide also documents CMN’s FBC Management Console software, which is used to configure the FBC.

F/B Connector configuration scenarios

This FBC Scenarios Guide therefore provides process instructions and application notes for installing and configuring CMN’s Free/Busy Connector in all of these Exchange-side scenarios:
To configure CMN’s FBC for a hybrid O365, refer to the appropriate on-premises scenario instructions in this Guide (in chapter 2 or 3). Remember to configure and test the hybrid connection between your local Exchange environment and Office 365, as documented by Microsoft, before configuring CMN’s FBC.

Other supported variations to typical FBC scenarios

Multi-Domain Support: The Free/Busy Connector can facilitate the exchange of F/B information among multiple subdomains supported by both the Exchange and Domino servers.
Multiple Domino Servers: CMN supports sharing F/B information between multiple Domino servers and a single Exchange server.
Domino Clusters: CMN supports a cluster of Domino servers (ClusterNode1 and ClusterNode2) that provide Lotus Notes mail service in an active/standby redundancy configuration. In this case, only a single CMN Web Server is required to support both Domino servers.
Free/Busy Coexistence with Outlook 2003 Clients: F/B coexistence with Outlook 2003 clients requires an alternate configuration using Exchange public folders. This configuration is described in greater detail in chapters 2 and 3 of this Scenarios Guide.
