Choosing Configuration Values for Calendar Server

For each Calendar Server instance in your solution, you must input values that configure the instance to interoperate with the other components in the solution. For example, if your solution uses Access Manager single sign-on, the Calendar Server instances must be configured to interoperate with Access Manager. Use Table 3–10 to help you choose configuration values.

Table 3–10 Key Configuration Values for Calendar Server Instances
