4-3: Configure trusted sites for computers hosting F/B components

Log in as the CMN account to be used with the F/B Connector (if you haven’t already). Then, in Internet Options (via Windows Control Panel or IE Tools):

1
Click the Security tab, then select Trusted sites and click the Custom level... button.
2
In Settings, scroll down to User Authentication | Logon, and click the radio button for Automatic logon with current user name and password.
3
Click OK to save the selection and return to the Security tab.
5
Click OK to save your new Security settings and dismiss the Internet Options dialog box.

4-4 (optional): Configure logging for F/B components

By default, CMN is installed with the log4net utility to generate log files of CMN components’ activity. This information is critical to diagnosing any configuration issues that may arise. Logging is enabled by default for all CMN components.

The default configurations will be suitable for most organizations and circumstances, but you can customize logging features. The log4net utility may be configured to work a particular way with each CMN component. Configuration instructions are nearly identical for all components, so we present the instructions separately, in Appendix C of the User Guide.

4-5 (conditional): Configuring CMN's FBC for Domino clusters

CMN supports Domino server clusters (ClusterNode1 and ClusterNode2) that provide Lotus Notes mail service in an active/standby redundancy configuration. In this case, a single CMN Web Server is required to support both Domino Servers. Follow the procedures below to set up this configuration. Initially, ClusterNode1 is the active Domino server.

1
Install QCalCon in ClusterNode2. See 2-1: Physically install the CMN QCalCon task. (QCalCon was installed in ClusterNode1 during step 2 of the initial procedure of this series.)

4-6: Run CMN's Management Console to configure FBC components

Use CMN’s Management Console to configure the Free/Busy Connector’s components—to identify the participating servers and their locations, register the necessary account access credentials, and set other operating parameters and preferences. See chapter 4 of the CMN User Guide for field notes and application notes for each screen in the F/B Connector Management Console.
