This IBM Redbooks publication will help the reader plan for, install, and configure the new IBM Lotus Domino 6.5 product on an IBM eServer zSeries system running Linux. We discuss why you should consider running Domino for Linux on zSeries, and list the advantages of running Linux in a guest under z/VM .
We then describe the structure of running Domino for Linux on zSeries for those who are not familiar with all of those products, and review what is new in Domino 6.5, since this is the first release that is supported on Linux on zSeries.
We provide detailed technical information about planning, allocating, and managing disk space, network considerations, installing Linux and Domino, and administering Domino. We also discuss systems management, capacity planning and performance tuning, connectivity to DB2 , migration from previous Domino releases or Domino servers on other platforms, and troubleshooting.
This book is targeted to zSeries systems programmers, Domino administrators, consultants, and service technicians.
This updated version includes information from customer and IBM experiences.
