If you have an existing Sametime infrastructure pointing to the local Domino dir for users/groups and you introduce WebSphere Portal pointing to another LDAP (say ITDS or AD etc.), then inorder to get awareness to work within Portal you need to perform some additional steps.
1. Name mapping by modifying the person document in the Domino dir to add the LDAP DN (replacing , with /) as the last entry in the user name/full name field.
2. Add the following parameter to CSEnvironment.properties on the Portal server
This ensures that awareness calls uses the LDAP DN (say uid=1234,ou=people,o=abc) and the STToken instead of the LTPA token. Sametime is able to resolve this user to CN=James Bond/OU=Secret/O=Spy as well as log him into STCommunity using the token.
If you use the default setup (of using LTPA Token) you will get an error on the Contact List portlet - "Unable to resolve user".
