Allow Traveler on single server to serve Mobile devices and Outlook clients

As of today (Traveler 11.0.1+) we are still required to have two separate server in case we need to support both mobile devices (activesync and verse apps) and Outlook desktop clients.

This is, for smaller customers, a limiting factor (but could also make sense for larger customers with branches etc)

The enhancement request and idea is to allow traveler to work in "both" modes on a single server.

My ideal deployment scenario is:

  • Install domino + traveler

  • Enable the traveler service for mobile, outlook or both

  • Serve devices and desktop clients from a single server.

I expect that other previous requirement will remain:

  1. Active sync can work with remote replicas

  2. Outlook support requires a local replica.

This is, to me, acceptable.

I can't figure out the "internals" and reasons why traveler needs to work "one way" or "the other" but allowing it to co-serve on a single server would be good.

I also consider as acceptable the requirement to maintain 2 different DBs one for activesync and one for Outllok (derby or db2 or sql DBs).

    I tried it, seems to work well... But it is not officially supported by HCL, and the Server document's tab is 'Traveler' or 'Outlook'... but not both...

    I think there's a good reason... but official support would be very appreciated !
