Lotus Workplace 2.0: Not your father’s Lotus product!

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been attempting to install Lotus Workplace 2.0 on a Windows 2000 machine. Starting with the number of downloads I’ve had to do (HINT: Don’t do all 35…you don’t need them!) to the ‘pre-installation’ process (if you don’t know LDAP yet, you will!) to the Installation Guide (I’ve had easier times reading binary language), it’s become one challenge after another. After some good-natured ribbing this morning at my expense, Bruce Elgort suggested that I blog about my experiences. I’ve been writing some notes down, so I figured that I would eventually get around to it.
As it so happens, life imitates blogging, and I find out thru the RSS feed from the IBM Redbooks – Lotus domain site that there is a draft Redbook on LWP 2.0 Deployment. From the superficial read, it looks like just what the ‘Doctor Notes’ ordered.
Go check it out at the Redbooks site.
Updates forthcoming…
