Lotus Notes to Active Directory synchronization

CloudAnywhere is shipped with a built-in connector for Lotus Notes.

This connector allows you to synchronize your Domino Address book (names.nsf) with the targets of your choice (Active Directory, Google Apps, Office 365, SalesForce, etc.).


This document explains how to setup synchronization between your Domino servers and Office 365 and keep your Domino directory and Office 365 users and groups in sync.


The Lotus Notes connector synchronizes:

  • Users;
  • All kinds of groups;
  • All available attributes.


  • A Lotus Notes client must be installed on the CloudAnywhere server.
  • The Lotus Notes client must be properly configured to be able to connect to a Domino server. The CloudAnywhere connector will use the notes.id defined in the Notes.ini of the Notes client.
