To use Google Calendar Connector for IBM® Notes® (GCCIN), you must meet the following requirements.
- A G Suite or G Suite for Education account.
- IBM® Domino® server 6.5 or later for Microsoft® Windows® (32 or 64 bit).
- GCCIN must be installed on a Microsoft Windows 2008 server or later.
- A single Notes client with Domino Administrator installed.
- The connector server ID must have editor (with delete rights) or above access to all mail files.
- Administrator access to your Domino mail servers.
Note: You might not meet this requirement if you're using a hosted mail server.
- Microsoft Core XML Services 6.0.
- The server responsible for polling Google servers must have access to the internet.
- You must retain the Notes mail files for each user who moves to Google Calendar.
- Each user’s Person document must be kept in the Domino directory.
- Users must be identifiable as Notes mail users. If you set forwarding addresses, Domino won't return schedule information for these users. If you need to apply a forwarding rule, apply it at the mail file level for each of your users. The rule makes sure that Domino continues to respond to availability requests.
Important: Avoid data loss
Once a user migrates to G Suite, GCCIN wipes the existing Notes calendar and overwrites it with future Google Calendar events. To avoid losing data:
- If you want to retain the Notes calendar, don't set a user’s Calendar field value to Google.
- Until the user is completely migrated to G Suite and no longer using the Notes calendar, don't set their Calendar field to Google.
- If you're in a G Suite trial, don’t use GCCIN. Use GCCIN when you're fully committed to moving to a G Suite account.
In addition, GCCIN does not work with these tools:
- G Suite Migration for IBM Notes—If you’re migrating the same user at the same time.
- Calendar Interop—Google Calendar supports only one external source of calendar availability data at a time.
