5.12. Using IDERI note in a workgroup environment

While IDERI note is primarily targeted towards enterprise environments that use Active Directory®, it can also be successfully implemented in a workgroup environment. All that is necessary is that you carefully synchronize user names and password of users on client workstations and the computer that is running the IDERI note server. After all, this is the primary functionality and the advantage that a domain in AD has over a workgroup, and in the absence of a domain, someone else has to fulfill this task. Not only have user names and passwords to be kept in sync, the users also have to be valid users on the computer where the IDERI note service is running. If this requirement can be fulfilled, IDERI note will operate in a similar way in a workgroup environment as in an AD domain environment.

Note however, that addressing computer objects is not possible in a workgroup environment. Therefore running the IDERI note server in the professional licensing mode in a workgroup environment is not possible as well. If you intend to run an IDERI note infrastructure in a workgroup environment, you have to obtain license keys for the standard or lite licensing mode from IDERI. If you plan to evaluate IDERI note in one of these modes within a workgroup environment, please contact IDERI sales to obtain a time-limited evaluation key for standard or lite licensing mode, since the IDERI note server comes with 5 builtin free licenses and is running in professional licensing mode by default with only these 5 free licenses. Please find contact information in section 12.
