A few years ago, shortly after the release of Domino 9, I wrote an instructional guide (along with some videos posted to YouTube) on how to install and configure IBM Domino on CentOS and posted it to dropbox. The response was overwhelmingly positive, I had no idea so many people needed this type of guide.
This year I presented a hands on workshop at AdminCamp 2016 where we went from a “bare metal” empty VM to a running Domino server, and while preparing that session I realized my original document needed a bit of a revision.
So, here it is, my fully revised and revamped version of Installing and Configuring IBM Domino 9 Social Edition on CentOS 6 Enterprise Linux. I hope it helps alleviate some of the fear and confusion with regards to using Linux as your Domino server platform. The document is aimed at YellowHeads (having some experience with Domino installations on Windows) who are thinking about stepping into the world of Linux. The document is focused on 64 bit Linux, but calls out differences from 32 bit installations where necessary. Even though it is aimed specifically at CentOS 6, the instructions should work for any RHEL or Debian-based (with some changes to handle DEB vs. RPM) linux version -although I must point out that the only supported Linux distributions are RHEL 6 and SUSE 11.
Hope this helps!
