Yes it is quite possible..

But make sure they share seperate directories (including data)...

Hi Hemantha,

> But make sure they share seperate directories (including data)...
They're not supposed to share anything! I know that's what you meant.

Androgyny,
It can be done, but only on a WinNT or Win2K+ system. First install the server, make it operational, then install the client.

Cheers!

If you intend to use any external program with Notes/Domino (something that accesses the C API, the COM API, or the Java API), be careful of order of installation.  The external COM program will probably find the version of the API that was installed last, i.e., if you install Dmino before Notes, it will find Notes, since Notes registered later, while C API programs will probably find whatever was installed first.  This applies no matter what configuration you use to sinatll them on the same machine.


You can install the binaries to the same location, just not share a data directory.  In practice it is probably easier to install to separate directories, even for the binraries.  The binaries are not identical, but nearly so, with most files being identical.  Fr the exception cases, usually the server version of an EXE is the one with more functionality, so install Domino second, or make backup copies of the Domino EXEs before installing Notes EXEs on top of them, so you can restore the richer EXEs.


You can also get a "clean" setup if you have access to VMWare or Microsoft's Virtual PC.

Right I have installed both the server and the client.  The server is up and running.  However when I start the client and try and connect to the server it says it is not responding.  Any ideas??

TCP/IP? Do you have a fixed IP-address or DHCP? Try 127.0.0.1 as serveraddress.

Tried 127.0.0.1 but no joy.  How will I find out what TCP/IP address to use??

Sjef BosmanGroupware ConsultantCommented:
Did you start the server, so you see a server console on your screen? The server tells you what addresses it uses when it starts up. To find out about your own system, use winipcfg or ipconfig/all in a DOS box. To inspect whether the server is listening, open a Telnet session to port 1352 on your own system and see what the responses are. If there is no connection, there's something wrong with the server.

Open the server document (locally) and set tcpip row with proper ip address (Use ipconfig/all to find the ip address of the machine)

Bingo.  Re-installed everything and now setting TCP/IP to 127.0.0.1 works.  Thanks.  Setting up Domino just to use as a development machine and test using the server.  Do I need to enable LDAP??

Nope. Several others can be disabled, depending on what you want to test. They get swapped out usually, so why bother... If you're short of memory, then indeed disable them.
