Metaframe and Lotus Sametime

By cdub ·
My company wants to roll Lotus Sametime out to the entire company in July but I'm running into problems finding a *good* way to do it on WTS/SP6, MF1.8/SP1 and all our users are on Thin Clients--no hard drives. The first time a user attempts to joina meeting, they are prompted to download and install an applet which won't work until the server has been restarted. All their user.dat files are stored on the server requiring them to log into the same server each time or import the .dat files. I tried installing on a stand alone NT4 server, registering the .dlls/.ocx and applets on the WTS and creating shortcuts but it didn't work...any ideas?

Metaframe and Lotus Sametime

Roaming profiles ... all of the user data and config information are then installed on the network and accessed when the user logs in. Sametime should have an option during setup that asks where the user files are to be located. They can then use load balanced published applications while still maintaining their individuality. Good Luck!!

I wish it were that easy. We all currently have roaming profiles. The program does not ask during setup where you'd like the user files to be located and there's not much to be done with .ini files etc. That's why the elaborate work-arounds.

Anyone out there actually try this? I have more points to spare. I've been working with NT4/Terminal Server/Metaframe for some time so the answer isn't going to be simple.
