      Last Name

      wpsbind

      User Name

      wpsbind/DominoDomain, where DominoDomain is your Lotus Domino Internet domain

      wpsbind

      Make sure you enter two values in the User Name field, where the first value includes the Lotus Domino domain.

      Short name/UserID

      wpsbind

    7. Enter the following values in the New Group form on the Basic tab.

      wpsadmins

      If you plan to configure WebSphere Portal for multiple user registries and your Lotus Domino LDAP will share a realm with another user registry, use the hierarchical naming convention for the group names, for example: wpsadmins/DominoDomain, to avoid unexpected results during WebSphere Portal runtime.

      Group type

      Multi-purpose

      Members

      wpsbind/DominoDomain

      wpsadmin/DominoDomain

      You can add additional administrator users if required.

    1. Open the names.nsf file in the Lotus Domino Administrator or Lotus Notes client.

    2. Click File > Application > Access Control from the main menu to open the access control list for the file.

    3. In the Access Control List > Basics panel, ensure that the wpsadmins group has either Author or Editor access.

    4. Add the following Role Types to the wpsadmins group:

      • GroupCreator

      • GroupModifier

      • UserCreator

      • UserModifier
