Instant Messaging Documentation Updates and Issues

This section contains information about changes to and errors in the documentation in the following sections:

Instant Messaging Administration Guide

This section lists information that is not described in the Administration Guide


Adding new users to Instant Messaging does not provision them for other Sun Java Enterprise System products

By default, theInstant Messaging new user registration facility does not enable users for other components, such as email or calendar. As a result, a user entry which has been provisioned using the Instant Messaging new user registration facility does not contain objectclasses and attributes required for these other services and will, therefore, not receive archive emails or calendar pop-ups.

Workaround: You can manually modify the user entries or registration.ldif to provide this additional information for the user entries added through the new user registration facility. Alternatively, use the provisioning tools supplied with the other Sun Java Enterprise System products.

Instant Messaging Online Help and Quick Reference

The following information is not described in either the product online help or the quick reference.

If you are using Java Plug-in (for Windows users only), click the Java Plug-in button at the top of the screen. The Online Help and Quick Reference buttons display end user product help.

Procedure for creating and managing conference rooms in the Quick Reference points to wrong menu
