The majority of this part of the GroupWise 7 Interoperability Guide (Section 30.0, Planning GroupWise in a Heartbeat Cluster through Section 36.0, Backing Up a GroupWise System in a Heartbeat Cluster) is designed for those who are creating a new GroupWise® system, or at least new domains and post offices, in a Heartbeat cluster on Linux.
If you already have an existing GroupWise 7 system on Linux and need to configure it to work in a newly installed Heartbeat cluster, see Section 38.0, Moving an Existing Linux GroupWise 7 System into a Heartbeat Cluster.
When you implement a new GroupWise system or a new domain or post office in a clustering environment, overall GroupWise system design does not need to change substantially. For a review, see GroupWise 7 Installation Guide. However, the configuration of individual components of your GroupWise system will be significantly different. This section helps you plan the following GroupWise components in a Heartbeat cluster:
A new GroupWise system consisting of the primary domain and the initial post office
A new secondary domain
A new post office
GroupWise Message Transfer Agent (MTA) and Post Office Agent (POA)
The Heartbeat Clustering Worksheet and the System Clustering Worksheet list the information you need as you set up GroupWise in a Heartbeat cluster. You should print the worksheets and fill them out as you complete the tasks listed below:
