Before you Install
Before you Upgrade
Installing the Lotus Traveler Server
Important for stand alone setups
When upgrading to 188.8.131.52 IF7 the defrag function
may run automatically during the first start of the Notes Traveler server. This will happen any time the database schema is updated as a result of an upgrade. The server will start normally once the defragmentation is completed. Depending on database size and system capabilities, the defragmentation may take longer than 30 minutes. Please plan this time into any scheduled maintenance window for upgrade. It is recommended to manually run the database defrag approximately once a month for enhanced performance in a standalone system. Consult your DB administrator for recommended maintenance if using an Enterprise DB.
APAR LO78514 requires a small database schema update. If running a Traveler stand alone environment or if running a Traveler HA environment with Auto Schema Update enabled then the Notes Traveler server will automatically apply this schema update when the server is started. If running a Notes Traveler HA environment with Auto Schema Update disabled then the database administrator should apply LO78514fixup.ddl to the enterprise database to enable the fix in LO78514. Not applying the ddl will not hurt the system, however the scenario fixed by the APAR will remain unchanged. The LO78514fixup.ddl can be found in LO78514DDL.zip file included with the download from FixCentral. For instructions on running ddl scrips see the Traveler Product documentation link below.
Updating the enterprise database
Domino 9.0.0.x is required to run Notes Traveler 184.108.40.206 IF7. It is recommended that the Domino server be at or later than Domino 220.127.116.11 IF3
