IBM Connections 5.5 small deployment guide by Chad Scott

The excellent Chad Scott from IBM has published a guide on how to set up a small deployment of Connections 5.5 with 5 servers. It’s very useful for production environments, when you want to set up something more complex than a single machine install.
The file is hereĀ  in the Socially Integrated community on DeveloperWorks; together with the doc there are some videos that show some of the various steps of the installation, you can find the videos here.
