Finally i managed to install Connections 3 on Ubuntu Server, but i didn’t got a one machine setup running. My idea was a demo install for testing issues. I can’t find DB2 32-Bit for Linux, so i decided to use Ubuntu 64 Bit and all other components 64 Bit. I got error after enabling ssl on IHS, because the ssl Plugin wasn’t found. I think that the .so file is 32 bit and can’t work with 64 bit Linux. So i make a two machine setup. One 64 bit ubuntu vm with db2 9.7 and tdi 7 64 bit
Many people know, that i prefer Ubuntu for my testing environments and several production servers. So one of my first tries to install Lotus Connections 3.0 was on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. Best thing in Ubuntu is the package management with aptitude or apt (First developed from Debian GNU/Linux Community). It is easy to use and powerful in installation and upgrade processes. Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server Installation Installed Standard Server 64 Bit with OpenSSH, nothing else. After the first start i prepared network, dns and /etc/hosts. First hint: Ubuntu normaly includes a line in the /etc/hosts with 127.0.1.1 hostname.
