Presentation by Stuart McIntyre & Rob Wunderlich from Lotusphere 2011

Here's the abstract: 'We will install – from scratch – a complete Lotus Connections infrastructure.
No smoke, no mirrors. You'll go away with all the materials needed to install Lotus Connections 3.0 from scratch, and become Enterprise 2.0 heroes!
The Lotus Connections install process keeps improving with each release, introducing new wizards, reducing prerequisite steps, making the process more robust and Lotus Connections 3.0 goes a step further by using the new Installation Manager technology.
But there are still a lot of moving parts. With over thirty successful Lotus Connections installations completed between us, we'll take attendees through the installation process step-by-step, from installing and patching IBM WebSphere and DB2, connecting to LDAP, through installing Lotus Connections and onto securing the service, all in 90 short minutes!'

  13. 13. In The Real World...• Most Lotus Connections 3.0 installations are: – Either Windows 2008 64-Bit or RHEL 64-Bit – Run against Lotus Domino Directory or MS Active Directory LDAP – Use DB2 (more on that in a bit...)• So, for this session we are using: – Windows 2008 Standard Server SP1 (not R2) – Lotus Domino 8.5.2 LDAP – DB2 9.7• Basic Windows install, plus – Google Chrome – BareTail – Easy Capture – Softerra LDAP Administrator• Then cloned VM © 2011 IBM Corporation 13
  14. 14. The Installation Environment• We’re trying hard to mimic a real production environment, suitable for approximately 1000+ users, using VMWare virtual machines (VMs)• Using two servers (via VMs): Server Name Running RAM Data DB2 2GB (data.ls11.us/10.10.10.1) TDI [Black desktop] LDAP (Domino) Connections WAS 4GB (connections.ls11.us/10.10.10.2) HTTP [Purple desktop]• In a production environment, would expect LDAP to already exist (Domino or AD), otherwise this environment built on VMWare ESX would work well. © 2011 IBM Corporation 14
  15. 15. The Installation Environment (cont.)• Between those two servers (“data” and “connections”) were going to build – from scratch – a working Lotus Connections instance during this session• However, to avoid 90% of this session consisting of looking at progress bars, were going to do some “magic of television” during the install (you know, where the chef puts all the ingredients together in a pot and through the magic of television then pulls one out of the oven thats been cooking for two hours)• Well go through all the steps and initiate the installation were working on, but then well switch to another VM instance where 45 minutes have elapsed and that part of the install says “complete”• We have complete, total faith that well be successful in our endeavor, but just in case, weve got a VM of the finished product, as well © 2011 IBM Corporation 15
  16. 16. In Your Environment, You Might...• Copy this installation environment (changing only hostnames, usernames and passwords as appropriate), giving you a flexible and responsive environment for testing, pilots and small-scale production• Shift HTTP on to its own server (moving to a three-box install), aiding performance and scalability further• Cluster WAS onto multiple nodes allowing growth to many thousands of concurrent users• However, the installation process is much the same, so this approach and these notes will help you along the way.• But we’re getting ahead of ourselves... © 2011 IBM Corporation 16
  17. 17. Agenda• Introductions, housekeeping, etc.• The Installation Environment• General Advice• What’s Changed for 3.0?• Pre-installation Tasks• Configuring for Lotus Connections• Installing Lotus Connections• Post-installation Tasks• Summary• Resources• Q&A © 2011 IBM Corporation 17
  18. 18. SQL Server or Oracle customer, why use DB2?• If your organization currently uses either Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle, should you use DB2 for Lotus Connections or not? – Point one – Lotus Connections happily supports all three databases (and, officially, supports all three equally) – Point two – updates, etc., for Connections and DB2 will happen in tandem and will be found all in one place. Oracle and SQL will not. – Point three – if your organization is already running SQL or Oracle (or DB2, for that matter), will you be allowed to use the existing infrastructure or will you need a database infrastructure of your own, anyway? – Point four – if your organization is running ANY ONE of the three DBs, are you running the right version ? – Point five – give thought to licensing. DB2 is free with Connections – will you need additional licenses, even if the other DBs are available in your organization? Will you need additional CALs if EVERYONE in your organization will potentially be accessing your existing DBs ?• Were not saying you shouldnt use something else, but there are a lot of reasons why the included-in-the-box DB2 is the logical choice... © 2011 IBM Corporation 18
  19. 19. Document, Document, Document!• Document every step of your installation. Include: – Naming conventions – Host names and IP addresses – Usernames and Passwords (and the specific role the user plays) – Detailed commands, will come in useful for future installs, trouble-shooting etc.• Suggestions: – Mind Maps – Evernote – Screenshots – Camtasia (or similar) to record install screens © 2011 IBM Corporation 19
  20. 20. Other tips...• We dont want to ruin all the surprises in our “12 Things Your Mother Never Told You” session, but there are a couple critical tips to pass along:• Never install into c:program files (or any path with spaces)• Keep paths as short as possible• If using VMs, take regular snapshots (so you can do a step over if needed)• Use Baretail (or tail -f) to follow log files• Use an LDAP browser• Use cheat sheets (record frequently-used command lines in a txt file)• Plan to spend three times more time planning than doing, and three times more time doing that on Profiles than anything else• Always wear white at night (important general safety tip) © 2011 IBM Corporation 20
  21. 21. Agenda• Introductions, housekeeping, etc.• The Installation Environment• General Advice• What’s Changed for 3.0?• Pre-installation Tasks• Configuring for Lotus Connections• Installing Lotus Connections• Post-installation Tasks• Summary• Resources• Q&A © 2011 IBM Corporation 21
  22. 22. What’s Changed for 3.0? (General)• Global Navigation and Theme (including drop-down menus)• Home Page/News – improved news feed and integration of status updates, email digest• Communities – invitations, improved Files integration, Activities integration, subcommunities,• My Communities views• Forums – standalone service, tags, question/answer topics• Profiles – Do You Know, Things in Common, Social Path widgets, tabbed Profile• Files – collections changed to folders including drag and drop• Wikis – improved use of real estate, drag and drop navigation, My Wikis views• Blogs – improved authoring including new editor and more consistent navigation and entries• Lists• Linked Value – SharePoint/Communities integration, new portlets, status updates Lotus• Notes sidebar plug-in © 2011 IBM Corporation 22
  23. 23. What’s Changed for 3.0? (Admin)• From the Administrator standpoint:• The installation procedure has changed significantly – Connections 3.0 installer is based on the newest install technology – IBM Rational Install Manager (2.5 was based on Install Shield). This is the same as used for Lotus Sametime 8.5. • The new installer has a more flexible GUI • Supports installation of multiple product simultaneously • Integrates install/uninstall/upgrade/modify into one GUI – Connections 3.0 installer supports Network Deployment version of WAS only • No longer support Stand-alone deployment (still able to migrate from 2.5 stand-alone to 3.0 ND) – Connections 3.0 installer supports installing multiple nodes at the same time • The installer will run directly against Deployment Manager and Managed Node rather than on unmanaged nodes (like 2.5) – Connections 3.0 installer is faster with reduced post-install steps © 2011 IBM Corporation 23
  24. 24. What’s Changed for 3.0? (Admin - cont.)• From the Administrator standpoint: – The installation procedure has changed significantly – Installation now much faster: • Actual installer still takes approximately an hour • But start-to-finish now approximately 60% of Connections 2.5 install time – Upgrades from Connections 2.5.0.2 to Connections 3.0 will be supported – New Database Wizard for Connections 3.0 • “Nanny mode” enables you to look into the detailed commands the Wizard runs, selected by default • Streamlined Wizard reduces number of questions asked – Population Wizard much improved too – Uses TDI 7.0 © 2011 IBM Corporation 24

  27. 27. Installation Sequence• We will be following an install process that makes most sense on stage, given time and equipment constraints• You do not need to perform the steps in exactly this order. The key is that all installation pre-requisites are met fully before installing Lotus Connections.• The steps fall into four categories: – Pre-installation steps (installing “foundational” software) – Configuring for Lotus Connections (create databases, etc.) – Install Lotus Connections – Post-Installation steps © 2011 IBM Corporation 27

  29. 29. Pre-Installation Tasks• As per the previous slide, we need to get a bunch of “foundational” installs out of the way before we actually install Connections: – On our “Data” server: • Install DB2 • Apply the DB2 license • Install TDI • Apply TDI Fixpack – On our “Connections” server: • Install WAS • Install HTTP and WAS Plug-ins • Install WebSphere Update Installer • Patch WAS, HTTP, Plug-ins to 7.0.0.11 © 2011 IBM Corporation 29
  30. 30. Step 1: Install DB2 9.7 on data• Download v9.7fp2_ntx64_server.exe from FixCentral – (There is no need to install full version of DB2 and then patch - just install the FixPack on a clean system)• Run v9.7fp2_ntx64_server.exe to unzip the contents (e.g. into c:Installdb2_9702)• Go to the "SERVER" directory and run setup.exe © 2011 IBM Corporation 30

  51. 51. An Aside: Installing DB2 on Linux• On Windows, a standard wizard-driven install of DB2 will automatically create a DB2 instance for Connnections to use. DB2 is also started and TCPIP communications configured. Easy-peasy!• On Linux and AIX, things are a little different – these steps need to be run manually, else the DB Wizard will not be able to find a database instance to install into... © 2011 IBM Corporation 51
  52. 52. An Aside: Installing DB2 on Linux (cont.)• Here are example steps to get DB2 ready on Linux, firstly create instance... – Install DB2 using wizard – Add groups and users: • groupadd -g 999 db2iadm1 • useradd -u 999 -g db2iadm1 -m -d /home/db2inst1 db2inst1 -p password • useradd -u 998 -g db2iadm1 -m -d /home/db2fenc1 db2fenc1 -p password • useradd -u 997 -g db2iadm1 -m -d /home/db2adm1 db2adm1 -p password – Create instance (as root): • /opt/ibm/db2/V9.7/instance/db2icrt -u db2fenc1 db2inst1 – Start DB2 (as db2inst1 – have to chmod 755 db2start as root) • cd /opt/ibm/db2/V9.7/adm; ./db2start – Create DB2 Admin Server (as root): • /opt/ibm/db2/V9.7/instance; ./dascrt db2adm1 – Test: • Login as db2inst1 • db2cc © 2011 IBM Corporation 52
  53. 53. An Aside: Installing DB2 on Linux (cont.)• Then configure TCPIP communications: – Edit /etc/services (as root), add to bottom of file: • db2inst1 50000/tcp • DB2_d2binst1_2 60002/tcp • DB2_db2inst1 60003/tcp • DB2_db2inst1_1 60004/tcp • DB2_db2inst1_2 60005/tcp • DB2_db2inst1_END 60006/tcp – Setup DB2 communications (as db2inst1) • cd ~/sqllib • . ./db2profile • db2 – update database manager configuration using svcename db2inst1 – db2stop – Db2start – get database manager configuration – db2set DB2COMM=tcpip – db2stop;db2start © 2011 IBM Corporation 53
  54. 54. An Aside: Installing DB2 on Linux (cont.)• Then test: – telnet localhost 50000• You should then be ready to run DBWizard...• Also need to configure DB2 to start automatically, e.g.: – Edit /etc/rc.local as root, add the following: • #START DB2 for LOTUS CONNECTIONS • DB2LOG=/tmp/startDB2.out.`date +"%y%m%d"` • su db2inst1 -c /home/db2inst1/sqllib/adm/db2start >> $DB2LOG 2>&1 © 2011 IBM Corporation 54
