Recommended Domino server for Sametime 7.5.1


During the Lotus Sametime 7.5.1 Taking Notes podcast, Julian asked me a question on which version of Domino is recommended for Sametime 7.5.1.

The recommendation is to use Domino 7.0.2 but with a Domino 7.0.1 JVM.  (There is an open issue being worked where the JVM used in Domino 7.0.2 can cause nHTTP crashes on the Sametime server.)  While you can run Sametime on Domino 7.0.1, there are other issues with Domino 7.0.1 that have been resolved in Domino 7.0.2 that result in it making more sense to run 7.0.2 with the 7.0.1 JVM.

To revert to the JVM from an earlier Domino release, copy the \Lotus\Domino\JVM folder from a pre-Domino 7.0.2 installation and overwrite the same folder on your Domino 7.0.2 server. Be sure to make a backup of the existing JVM folder before taking these steps.  For Unix and Linux the JVM is located in /opt/ibm/lotus/notes/latest//jvm/ by default.

This technote on this topic is in the process of being updated, and we will post further updates to make sure it is current.
