I have been taken Centos 5.7 x64 and Domino 8.5.1 and Windows Machine. (Windows)

An additional machine is needed to install the Lotus Notes Administrator in order to configure and setup the Domino Server remotely and manage it later on.

Let start by installing the Domino server on the Linux machine; Before starting to install you do need to prepare the platform.
