Automate Mongo DB installation for Sametime

With Sametime 11 the Mongo DB needs to be installed and configured completely manually.

This should be automated. Maybe with a selection if the Mongo DB should be installed automatically with Sametime or an existing Mongo DB should be used.

    Sametime could run without Domino, but I doubt that this happens very often. All my known parties use Sametime in conjunction with Domino. However, I'm not the Sametime sales manager. ;-)

    Using NSF as an alternate would be great, at least for those companies with Domino.

    I really don't see the benefits of an additionan database management system. Why MongoDB, if Domino is available?

    I also would prefer the solution with a Notes database. As long as persistent chat and chat history is still available.

    Having a all-in-one package with Mongo DB would be neat, as well.

    We should stay with Mongo DB, many have already switched over. It runs stable and reliable. As I said before, if we have to switch back to Mongo DB, this will only lead to many admins not switching to a new version or not switching at all. That would have the consequence that HCL Notes would not get further. We need success with Notes and Sametime otherwise it won't work.

    Hi Manfred,

    We are looking into using Domino as chat history storage db. There are some Aha ideas created for this request. Please feel free to vote on those. We may provide different options to our customers. If you want to keep using Mongo, you can certainly do that.

    Thanks for all your feedback. This helps us in making decisions around the product features that are important to our customers. Appreciate it.

    OK, i already found some hints that Sametime 12 is supposed to use NSF as storage.

    That makes the situation with Sametime 11 even worse. All the work for setting up Mongo DB manually for just 1 Sametime version...

    NSF as replacement would be a good idea. But can this really be implemented?

    What if we replace it with an NSF?
