9.8 Configuring Presence

If you are using Novell Messenger as your instant messaging solution, you can configure Novell Vibe to display a user’s Messenger presence information. For information about where presence information is displayed in Vibe, see Sending an Instant Message from within Vibe in the Novell Vibe 3.3 User Guide.

When you click a user’s presence icon, the Profile Quick View is displayed, which enables you to send an instant message to the user, view the user’s personal workspace, follow the user, and more.

In order to configure Messenger presence to be displayed in Vibe, you need the following information about the Messenger system during the Vibe installation:


Under Presence Configuration, select Enable Novell Messenger Presence, then list the information that the Vibe site needs to know in order to communicate with the Messenger system.

Complete the planning process for additional Advanced installation features as needed, then perform the Advanced installation as described in Section 10.0, Performing an Advanced Vibe Installation.

IMPORTANT:For Messenger presence to display in Vibe when using LDAP, you need to map presenceID to your authentication attribute in the Vibe LDAP configuration page. For example, presenceID=cn. For more information, see Configuring Presence in the Novell Vibe 3.3 Administration Guide
