This time we did not have our meeting at the IBM forum, due to unavailability, but very close by in Diegem, at the NH Hotel (details below).

On Tuesday, June 28th we had a BLUG meeting.

This was the agenda:


Welcome with Coffee

Tivoli Directory Integrator (TDI) for Domino Admins/Devs
We'll demonstrate how the FREE tool Tivoli Directory Integrator (TDI) can be used to “fill in the gaps” of your Domino Directory using other non-Domino data sources. Learn how you can use TDI with your Domino directory and other databases to move data back and forth between Domino and other data sources. We’ll cover simple and complex data transformation, setting up connectors, and other scenarios for using TDI. You’ll have the skills to start using these assembly lines immediately in your own environment – as an administrator or a developer. So why not start leverage the best tool for Domino you’ve never heard about? You’ll think that TDI stands for The Domino Integrator when we’re done!

How to get there
  • by Car
    See the map below. The hotel is close to the main highway exits of Brussels.
    You can park your car for this meeting for free in the pretty big underground parking lot (there is also some space the left and right of the hotel entrance).
  • by Train
    The hotel is opposite a small railway station 'Diegem' (so a 25 m. walk). You can get there e.g. via Brussel 'North'
  • by Air
    The hotel itself is very close to the Airport of Zaventem (Brussels).
    There is a complementary shuttle service, on the busiest hours of the day.
    Here's the shuttle timetable:

    You can also take a taxi. This will be around 15 EUR.
