Install and prepare GCRS
Step 1: Download the connector
Before you begin with Google Calendar Resource Sync (GCRS), you must complete all the installation steps. First, download the connector.
This kit contains 2 IBM® Notes® templates, gcrs.ntf and gcrs-log.ntf. It also contains the service account DLL that is needed if you want to use a service account to access your G Suite Calendar resources.
Service account DLL
The kit includes two DLL files:
- win32\service_account_com_dll.dll (32 bit)
- x64\service_account_com_dll.dll (64 bit)
If you want to use a service account to access your G Suite Calendar resources you will need to register the appropriate DLL on your GCRS server. This file isn't needed if you are using 3-legged OAuth as your authorization method.
The GCRS database is created manually on the IBM Domino® server from the gcrs.ntf template.
The database contains the system configuration and a set of resource profiles. A single resource profile identifies an IBM Notes and a G Suite resource to be synchronized by the system.
The database also includes the schedule agent Sync Calendars. This agent is responsible for synchronizing the resources between the two systems.
A log database is created automatically from the gcrs-log.ntf template when GCRS is configured for the first time. The following events are logged to this database:
- Product authorization
- Uploading and provisioning of resources
- Synchronization events
- Calendar conflicts
