This is an answer to prayer ;-) Getting Lotus Quickr to work effectively and reliably with ActiveDirectory is not always straightforward, principally because of the numerous and varied ways that MS admins set up their AD forests. Step forward a new Wiki section "Setting up Lotus Quickr services for Lotus Domino with Microsoft Active Directory" added by David Byrd back in mid-October, and refreshed today:
Lotus Quickr Services for Lotus Domino requires some type of directory services to function correctly. These directory services can come from an existing Lotus Domino environment, from an LDAP service or from the local contacts. Each of these allow for the product to authenticate the users, provide for group membership and store meta data about the members.An excellent addition to the Quickr wiki.
Leveraging the Lotus Domino directory natively is perhaps the least complicated, but can present challenges when trying to perform product integration with WebSphere Portal, Lotus Sametime, and Lotus Connections. To simplify product integration using the same LDAP source across each is recommended. This means that for a Lotus Domino based directory environment the preferred method is via an LDAP source.
A very common deployment requirement within today's enterprise environment is integration with Microsoft's Active Directory. This directory provides the backbone for all of the Microsoft enterprise solutions in the market today including the Windows operating systems.
