1.3.4 WEA Server configuration
Additional WebSphere Everyplace Access configurations are needed regarding
users who want to synchronize data with their mobile devices, and the
associated synchronization profiles. Those steps cover:
򐂰 Creating new WEA users who will use the ESS synchronization features.
򐂰 Configuring the Lotus Domino Adapter to synchronize with the Domino
server.
򐂰 Creating a default synchronization profile that will be used to synchronize and
filter data to the mobile devices.
Create a new WEA user
First of all, a new user account is created on the WEA server, and this user is
expected to synchronize data; therefore, the appropriate access rights to the
ESS portlets are needed. For example, follow these steps to set up a user:
1. Create a new user from the WEA portal.
2. Add the user to the essadmins or essusers group (those group are
automatically created during installation).
Configure Lotus Domino adapter
The Lotus Domino adapter needs to be configured properly to work with the
Synchronization Server. It is configured using the Lotus Domino Adapter portlet.
The Lotus Domino Adapter allows data to be synchronized between Lotus
Domino servers and mobile devices. A single Lotus Domino Adapter can support
multiple Lotus Domino servers. For example:
1. Log into WebSphere Everyplace Access as the Portal Administrator.
2. Select Administration on the Portal controls on top and then Websphere
Everyplace

Lotus Domino Adapter on the left menu.
Note: As an alternative, you can add a new group to the essusers or
essadmins group and add the new user to this group. For details see IBM
WebSphere Everyplace Access V5 Handbook for Developers and
Administrators Volume I: Installation and Administration, SG24-6462.

3. During the installation of ESS, you should have been prompted for the
Adapter ESSadmin ID and password. Under Lotus Domino authentication,
verify that the Administrator ID and Administrator password are correct.
Change if necessary.
4. During the installation of ESS, you should have been prompted for the details
of one Domino Server. This Domino Server will be used to authenticate the
Adapter ESSadmin ID. Verify that this is correct. Change if necessary.
You can define a Lotus Domino Synchronization Authentication Server to
authenticate synchronization users. For Lotus Domino, you only need to
Chapter 1. PIM and e-mail synchronization with Domino Server 31
specify the authentication server to access all of the Lotus Domino servers in
your network. To add additional Domino Servers:
a. You should see the name of the Domino Server added during the
installation of ESS under the Lotus Domino Servers section. Click the Add
button on the right side of this section.
Figure 1-28 Adding a Lotus Domino server
b. Enter the host name and description. Click OK.
Follow these steps to remove an existing Domino Server:
a. Under the Lotus Domino Servers section, click the Domino Server you
wish to remove.
b. Click the Remove this server button.
5. Click Save.

6. Restart Everyplace Synchronization Server by clicking Start Settings
Control Panel
Administrative Tools Services. Locate the IBM
Synchronization Server. Stop the service if it is running. Start the service.

7. Verify that the Domino Server has started by selecting Websphere

Manager Servers (or Lotus Domino Adapter). If the server has started, the
word Running will appear on the right side of your server under the Server
status column.

If the Domino Server has not started, check your settings for the Lotus
Domino Adapter by selecting Everyplace Synchronization
Lotus
Domino Adapter. You may also want to check the ESS logs for errors. The
ESS logs are located in <ESS_dir>\logs, where <ESS_dir> is the directory
where ESS is installed.
You can also check the Domino Server console to see if there were any
attempts to access the database of the Adapter Admin User. If ESS is
correctly talking to the Domino Server, it should look something like
Figure 1-31.
