Install and configure Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway

Install Domino Server binaries on each Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway computer. Select the Messaging Server option when installing.

You must install the appropriate Domino hotfixes on the Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway.

See Prerequisite software for Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway.

You must make the Vault Service account into a local administrator on the Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway.

The Domino server on the Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway must run under the Vault Service account. It is best practice to run the Domino server as a service, but be aware that the server console is not displayed when running a service under an account other than the system account. This is a Microsoft Windows limitation. To see the console, you can connect to it remotely.

If you want to have the server console displayed locally while you are configuring Domino Mailbox archiving, you can run the Domino server as an application as follows:

  • Log on to the Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway computer using the Vault Service account.

  • In Windows Services console, if the Lotus Domino Server service is running, stop it.

  • Disable the Lotus Domino Server service.

  • Start the Lotus Domino Server (by double-clicking the desktop icon or running Domino program directory\nserver.exe), and select the option to start the server as a regular application. The Domino server configuration starts.

During Domino server configuration, do the following:

  • Supply the Domino Server ID that was created when you registered the Domino server on the Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway.

  • Select the option Web Browsers (HTTP Services) on the Internet Services page to add the HTTP server task.

  • For optimum performance, use the Customize button to remove all but the minimum server tasks. The following Domino server services are the minimum required on the Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway:

    • Indexer (Update)

    • Administration process (AdminP)

    • Domino web server (HTTP)

Note:

In a production environment, start the Domino Server on the Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway as a service running under the Vault Service account.

To ensure that Enterprise Vault can configure user mail files for archiving, and subsequently update the users' mail files with any archiving policy changes, the Domino Directory should replicate frequently to the Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway.

To enable DWA users to open those archived MIME items that are signed or encrypted there must be an SSL connection to the Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway. In this case, you must configure the Enterprise Vault Domino Gateway for SSL. If you do not do this configuration, DWA users receive the following error message:

Unable to complete the current operation.
SSL is required for secure mail,
but is not enabled on Domino Server.
Please notify your administrator.
