If you try to install the Microsoft Calendar Connector for Lotus Notes on a Lotus Notes version 5.x server that is installed on an AS/400 computer, when you enter the loading command at the Notes server console, you receive the following error message:
If you modify the command and specify the extension as excalcon.exe, you may receive the following error message:
Notes users may be able to view the free and busy time of Exchange Server users, but if you send meeting requests from Exchange Server to Notes, you receive an immediate non-delivery report (NDR). However, mail continues to flow.
This issue can occur because the version of the Excalcon.exe file that is supplied on the Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 Service Pack 3 CD-ROM is designed to run on Intel (i386) or DEC Alpha (Alpha) computers only. This version of the Excalcon.exe file cannot run on AS\400 mainframe computers. If you try to install the Calendar Connector for Lotus Notes on a UNIX computer, you encounter a similar issue.
To work around this issue, find another Notes server that is installed on a computer running Microsoft Windows NT or Novell, use that server as the bridgehead server, and install the Calendar Connector for Lotus Notes on that server.
Currently the setup for the Calendar Connector for Lotus Notes is not supported on AS\400 or UNIX computers. For more information, refer to the Calcon.rtf file located in the Exchsrvr\Connect\Calcon\Doc folder on the Exchange Server computer that the Calendar Connector for Lotus Notes is installed on.
In an ordinary installation, the Calcon.exe file is copied from Exchange Server in either the Exchsrvr\Connect\Calcon\Excalcon\I386 or Alpha folder to the Notes server in the NS\C:\notes folder.
The Excalcon.pgm file is not found anywhere in the AS/400 file system. AS\400 uses the .pgm extension to denote a program.
