About the software
The IBM Lotus Domino 8.5.2 development-use Amazon Machine Image (AMI) provides a fully functional Domino server for development and test use in the Amazon Web Services™ Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) environment. This image complements the IBM Lotus Domino Designer Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that is now freely downloadable from the IBM developerWorks Lotus site.
Independent Softwre Vendors (ISVs) and System Integrators (SIs) can use the AMI to reduce the amount of time and skills needed to develop and test their applications on a Domino server and outside the Designer IDE. At this time, however, it is neither suitable nor supported for running applications in a production setting, and IBM Support is unable to address issues related to its use. Additional support resources are available in the Cloud Computing Central on My developerWorks.
The image is built on SuSE Linux® Enterprise Server (SLES) 10 and Lotus Domino 8.5.2 FP1. The steps in this article complete the configuration of the server, including the attachment of an Elastic Block Storage (EBS) volume for the Domino data directory, creation of the Administration ID file and password, and setup of the IP address.
A prototype user interface, known as Simple Admin, has been included to facilitate the most common administration aspects. Additional administrration of the server may be done through either the Web Admin interface or the Administration Client.
