Hello Experts,

  I started with a new company this week as their IS Administrator.  One of the big challenges I am facing is that they are using Lotus Notes/Domino 7 and I have zero experience with it.  I am from an Exchange background.
  I have been searching for a good administrators manual for both the front-end Notes and the back-end Domino programs and have been unable to find anything.
  So, my question is, can you please provide a link to such documentation?  Beyond that, are there and good tips or suggestions for a guys coming from an Exchange setting to a Notes/Domino setting?

ANY information is appreciated!

Thanks!!!

1) IBM red Books are a good source of info.

2) The Admin Client Help file gives you an overview and specifics- You need to install the Admin client on your machine ( and this is needed to do proper administration of Notes ). It has guides and task lists.

ALso check the IBM site for best practices guides.

 
I hope this helps !

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thanks SysExpert,

  Those are pretty much what I found as well.  I even called IBM and chatted with them online and no one seems to have a clue where the actual Administration Guide is.  I find that rather odd.  The Redbooks are a start and they provide some information, but I am really looking for the big, bad, huge admin guide that would normally be published along with a program like Domino.  Exchange, for example, has one as does pretty much every other piece of software I have worked with.

A frustrating start to working with Lotus!

As I said, it is actually the Admin help in the Admin client.

I think I found what I was looking for!  If you go here:

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/lotus/documentation/domino/70x.html?S_TACT=105AGX28&S_CMP=DLMAIN

There is a link to the Lotus Domino Administrator Help which is, indeed, the full admin guide.  It is almost 2000 pages long!  I must have skipped it before because of the oddball title.  I never heard of a Admin guide called "help" before.

The Help in the Admin program is useful, but, from what I saw, it was not a full manual like the one I found is.

Thanks for the input guys!
