Section 10: Create and Configure Domino Databases

Once installed, BTCal will not actually start unless certain Domino databases exist. If these databases do not already exist, they must be created.

To create the necessary databases, the administrator must perform the below tasks from the Notes Administrator client for each corresponding database.

Locate the databases and templates below in the Domino server’s data directory and sign them with either the server’s ID or your company’s preferred ECL signing ID.
