Lotus Workplace consists of flexible, portal-ready collaboration products that you can customize to fit your specific needs. These products provide features similar to those found in the core IBM/Lotus Software portfolio, including Lotus Instant Messaging and Lotus Team Workplace (QuickPlace), but that are built on different underlying technology.

Lotus Workplace products include:
IBM Lotus Workplace Messaging
IBM Lotus Workplace Team Collaboration
IBM Lotus Workplace Collaborative Learning
IBM Lotus Workplace Web Content Management

The objective of this IBM Redbooks publication is to provide an installation and deployment guide for the overall Lotus Workplace 1.1 “platform”. It provides detailed installation procedures for installing the Lotus Workplace products on both a Microsoft Windows server, as well as a Linux server running SuSE Enterprise Server 8.1. It also discusses important deployment and planning scenarios, as well as tips, best practices, and techniques for troubleshooting errors during installation and ongoing production.
