Great walk through of the technology and "real world" scenarios.

Sametime 8.5.2 is a very different beast then previous versions. With the new WebSphere components there is a lot to learn for somebody who has never used WebSphere and this book really helped explain a lot of the WebSphere concepts which are really different to anything a Domino admin has ever dealt with before.

With the help of this book I was able to get our new SameTime 8.5.2 environment up and running perfectly and now our users are able to use the new system with their iPhones/iPads and other devices while on the road.

A great read for anybody new to WebSphere who has to deploy SameTime 8.5.2

Nearly 500 pages of content from three of the best Domino and Sametime admins in the world. I am fortunate enough to know all three personally, and can tell you that they checked every single word and tested every single suggestion and recommendation in this book personally. There are very few people in the world who are personally responsible for more end users using Sametime, for more servers running it, or for more integration projects with it.

Format: Kindle Edition
I've received my copy of IBM Sametime 8.5.2 Administration Guide and I can say I was eagerly looking forward to reading it. I was not disappointed. The book clearly covers Sametime 8.5.2 from A to Z.

One thing that struck me in a positive way is how logically the chapters are arranged. Starting with an overview of Sametime, including what's new in 8.5.2, the book covers topics that include infrastructure, different features including telephony integration, and Sametime security, to name just a few. One has the feeling that this is how IBM should have written the documentation for Sametime. I know I have at one time or another had that feeling that IBM's documentation was missing a piece of information that could have made my life a lot easier. This book would have done just that - made installing Sametime much easier.

The book is full of charts and tables. For example, it has a list of Sametime server system requirements. Instead of using the IBM term "32-bitness" the book actually spells out in plain English language which versions of Sametime and their components run on which version of each supported operating system. I would dare say the price of the book is worth this type of information alone. One neat feature of this book is the really helpful "checklists". Not only do these checklists force you to have the required information before your first click of a Sametime install, the checklists make system documentation much easier. All user names, hostnames, passwords, etc all ready to be printed out and binded.

The book covers basic information and more advanced topics. The writing is such that a beginner will not have a hard time understanding what is being described, and advanced administrators will not be bored either.

Format: Paperback
As both an admin and developer, I do not work much with Sametime other than as an end user. Occasionally I do get pulled into a Sametime project and have always wanted a solid, reliable source of information on Sametime from an administrator's point-of-view. Finally, this resource exists in the form of the IBM Sametime 8.5.2 Administration Guide written by the extremely knowledgeable nerd girls Gabriella Davis and Marie L. Scott, and the incomparable Thomas "Duffbert" Duff.

The book opens with a useful introduction to Sametime 8.5.2. The chapter gives overviews of the different aspects of the Sametime architecture (system console, community server, meeting server, proxy server, etc.), along with helpful information on licensing, and helps admins with an existing Sametime environment answer the install or upgrade question.

Chapters 2 - 5 take a deeper dive into the architecture and pre-installation planning needed for Sametime 8.5.2. Chapter 2 is all about installation requirements, customization (when applicable) and deployment scenarios of the different aspects of Sametime that were touched on in Chapter 1. Chapter 3 is all about telephony. Chapter 4: The Infrastructure: Understanding Sametime and WebSphere Application Server Architecture is a must read chapter for all Sametime admins who have not had prior WebSphere experience! It explains the different concepts and terms that admins will come across in WebSphere, the location of files (profiles, logs, etc.), and the different deployment scenarios. Finally, Chapter 5 hits on those key decisions points such as infrastructure design, piloting Sametime, integration, software and hardware requirements, planning for DB2 and LDAP, migration, etc.

Chapter 6 is the requisite "installing [software name goes here]" chapter.

Format: Paperback
It took me a while to go thru all of the content, but inally I made it and here is my review.
IBM Sametime 8.5.2 Administration Guide was written by Gabriella Davis, Marie L. Scott and Thomas "Duffbert" Duff.
I have attended sessions by Gabriella Davis and Thomas Duff at several conferences and while reading the book, I sometimes felt like sitting in the audience and hear Gabriella and Tom talking. I never had the chance to meet Marie L. Scott but I'm sure that she is as enthusiastic as the other authors.
All of them have a deep knowledge and so is the content of the book.
Every detail of the installation and administration is covered and one should be able to setup a Sametime environment following the description in the book step by step. If I only had this book a year ago, it would have saved me a lot of time then.
My first installation took me more than a week. One week with reading documentation, hanging around in forums and chatting with IBMer Frank Altenburg. And a lot of try and error.
Be asured that, following the book, you can do the installation in less time.
Also, if you are new to Websphere, this book is for you. IBM Sametime is not as easy to setup as double-click a setup.exe and wait. There are many places to look into and numerous properties that can be set or eaven been set wrong.
You can do it the hard way and find out on your own, or invest some money buying this book. There will be an immediate ROI.
The book may also help planning the resources by finding out, what exactly is needed, both hardware and soft skills.
I recommend "IBM Sametime 8.5.2 Administration Guide" to everyone who is new to Sametime, wants to upgrade from an older version and even to those, who already have a Sametime 8.5.x environment running. You will for sure find something in the book that is new to you.
