Domino is one of the most effective platforms for developing and deploying e-business applications, allowing new communities of developers to enjoy its collaborative capabilities. With over 55 million seats worldwide, Domino already provided a strong foundation for messaging and web applications, and the release of R5 builds on that to make Domino easier to use than ever before. For example, Lotus Domino R5 has been expanded to interact with most browsers and other non-Notes clients, so developers can choose their favorite language to design web applications. With R5, administrators can centrally modify client configurations instead of hopping from one terminal to the next throughout the company. The new Domino interface allows administrators to visually monitor the health and status of the Domino servers in a network from a single screen. All this capability implies complexity, and it's easy to forget which menu to go to. Here's where Lotus Domino Administration in a Nutshell can help. It's a quick reference that will come in handy again and again for finding solutions to administrative problems.
This book covers: * Domino architecture and key concepts * R5 administration tools * Domino directory and console commands * Database properties and Access Control * Configuring Domino Enterprise Connection Services (DECS) * Supporting the Notes client * Domino for IIS Whether the task is messaging servers, modifying administration tasks to a simpler and more efficient level, or ensuring the security and flexibility of a web application server, Lotus Domino Administration in a Nutshell is the reference developers need to make the most of this reliable and scalable integrated server platform.
