Sametime 7.5.1 For Notes And Domino 8.0.x

Downloaded the IBM Lotus Sametime Server 7.5.1 Instant Messaging Limited Use for Windows Multilingual (C133DML) from Passport Advantage and started to install it on my Domino 8 server.
Then, after a short while:

Please, IBM, could you fix the download. I don’t think that I’ve downloaded the wrong package …

  1. We’ve got the same problem: unable to install Sametime 7.5.1 Limited use on Domino Server 8, because it requirea a Domino 7.x version!! Please IBM solve the problem!

  2. I’ve had the same problem. Solved it this way :

    1. Renamed the c:\lotus\domino directory to something else. The data directory is stored on another drive. I just let it in place, the control is just made upon the DLLs and exe files.
    2. Copied a c:\lotus\domino directory on my server from a Domino 7 server
    3. Launched the sametime 7.5.1 setup program
    4. Passed the licence agreement and, when arrived on the directory choice screen, deleted the domino7 directory and renamed back the c:\lotus\somethingelse directory to c:\lotus\domino
    5. Continued the setup process untill the end.

    All ran perfect after that, and my Domino 8 server is now running sametime 7.5.1

  3. You said your Domino 8 server is now running Sametime 7.5.1 by installing Lotus Domino 7.0.2 first.
    Did you do an upgrade?

    Also have you tried Quickr 8.0 on top of Domino 8 with Sametime 7.5.1 ?

    Have you tried installing Sametime 7.5.1 on Domino 8 (UNIX flavour)?

  4. Hi,

    I didn’t install domino 7 first. I installed Domino 8. After that, moved the domino 8 exe and dll files to another directory (renamed the directory in fact), put domino7 exe and dll files (from another server) in my domino 8 exe initial directory (c:\lotus\domino\*.* for instance). After that ran the sametime 7.5.1 setup program (that way Sametime was really happy to find the domino7 binaries, it told me so…), and after that (before starting Domino and sametime) finished my setup by putting the domino8 binaries back in place.

    I’ve put QuickR8 running on a Domino8 server, but that was not the one running sametime; and never tried Sametime 7.5.1 on Domino 8 on linux or unix.
