67.1 Adding Multiple Calendar Publishing Hosts

Often, one Calendar Publishing Host is sufficient to service all Internet users who want to access your GroupWise users’ calendar and free/busy information. However, you might want to add an additional Calendar Publishing Host for load balancing or to improve response time for Internet users in different geographical locations.

However, if you have users in remote locations, and response time is slow for these users, you can add a Calendar Publishing Host to a POA that is closer to these remote users.

NOTE:Sections referenced in the following steps are found in the GroupWise 2012 Installation Guide.

  1. Install the Calendar Publish Host software to a remote Web server, as described in Installing the GroupWise Calendar Publishing Host.

  2. Add and configure the new Calendar Publishing Host, as described in Configuring the Calendar Publishing Host in ConsoleOne. Make sure you restart the POAs for post offices that support calendar publishing so that the POAs pick up the configuration information for the new Calendar Publishing Host.

  3. Restart the Web Server and Tomcat on the server where you installed the new Calendar Publishing Host to establish it as part of your GroupWise system, as described in Restarting the Web Server and Tomcat.

  4. Make sure that the new Calendar Publishing Host is accessible by following the procedures provided in Testing Calendar Publishing in the GroupWise 2012 Installation Guide.

  5. To improve performance when you set up multiple Calendar Publishing Hosts, follow the instructions in TID 7007208: Load Balancing and High Availability for GroupWise Calendar Publishing in the Novell Support Knowledgebase.

  6. Continue with Assigning a Different Calendar Publishing Host to Users.
