How to install Lotus Domino Server on SUSE Linux contributor Charles Connell IV provides step-by-step instructions on how to install Domino 7.0.2 on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10.

Lotus Domino Server has been available for the Linux platform for several years. Only recently however, have many corporate and enterprise Domino administrators begun to take Linux seriously as a trusted operating system. In particular, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server have become tried-and-true platforms that administrators now count on for important computing services. In this tutorial, I describe how to install Domino 7.0.2 on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10.

The machine that I used for this installation happened to be a virtual machine built under the free product VMware Server. The fact that this machine was virtual does not alter any of the information about how to install or configure Linux or Domino though. If you are using a physical server node, simply skip Step 1.
