Step 1: Plan your FBC installation and configuration

To plan your overall FBC installation and configuration:

1-1: Verify system requirements

Review the system requirements (in the CMN Release Notes), and verify either that your environment conforms to the requirements, or that you will have the necessary hardware and software to meet the requirements.

1-2: Make a configuration map

Scan through the installation and configuration procedures in this chapter, and think through what this process will entail in your own environment, to accommodate your own needs and preferences. Identify any special circumstances or issues, and decide how these will be addressed.

Then sketch out a configuration map to show which FBC components will reside on which computers. For technical reasons, the QCalCon component of the Free/Busy Connector must be installed on a Domino server. But if the Domino environment contains more than one Domino server, QCalCon is installed on only one server. (Other Domino servers can find and use a single QCalCon instance on a "bridgehead" server.) The other four Free/Busy Connector components can be installed on a single computer, although deployment to two separate computers will improve performance in environments with higher volumes of F/B queries and replies.

When Free/Busy Connector components are deployed to two computers, they are typically installed like this:

1-3: Complete the CMN FBC Planning Worksheet

Use the worksheet in Appendix A of this Scenarios Guide to gather and organize the information you will need to enter into CMN’s Management Console application when configuring the Free/Busy Connector. You can just print the Appendix to paper, and use a pen or pencil to write the information into the wide right margins.
