6.2 Configuring the Domino Web Access portlet
This section explains how to configure the Domino Web Access portlet in the Workplace
Services Express environment.
6.2.1 Setting up Domino for use with the Domino Web Access portlet
Before you can use the Domino Web Access portlet in Workplace Services Express, make
sure that your Domino configuration meets the requirements for use with this portlet. Perform
the following steps:
1. Verify that all mail files to be accessed from the portlet are using the Domino Web Access
or iNotes template:
a. Open the Domino Administrator client and connect to your Domino server.
b. Click the Files tab.
c. Click the folder that contains your mail files. Typically this is the mail folder.
d. Scroll to the right and review the template name as shown in Figure 6-1. If you do not
see
iNotes6 or DWA7 in this column, you must convert your user’s mail file to use a
Domino Web Access (inotes6.ntf or dwa7.ntf) template.

Note: The steps to configure the Domino Web Access portlet are the same for Domino 6.x
and Domino 7.x.

2. If necessary, update the design of the mail file to inotes6.ntf or dwa7.ntf using one of the
following convert commands on the Domino server console. In this command, FileName
represents the mail file name (see Example 6-1).
For Domino 6.x, type the following command:
load convert mail/FileName.nsf * inotes6.ntf
For Domino 7.x, type the following command:
load convert mail/FileName.nsf * dwa7.ntf
Example 6-1 Domino load convert utility

Load convert mail/nadminis.nsf * inotes6.ntf
