30.3 Planning a New Clustered Domain

The considerations involved in planning a new domain in a clustering environment are essentially the same as for any other environment.

Regardless of the type of domain you are creating, keep in mind the following cluster-specific details as you fill out the worksheet you need:

When you have completed the worksheet, transfer the key information from the Basic GroupWise System Worksheet or the Domain Worksheet to the GroupWise Clustering Worksheet.


Under Item 2: Domain Name, transfer the domain name and domain directory to the GroupWise Clustering Worksheet. Specify the mount point where the domain directory will be mounted to each node when it becomes active.


Under Item 7: Cluster Resources for Domain, specify the name of the cluster resource group that will represent the domain (for example, group_dom1), the name of the resource for the MTA (for example, resource_mta2, and the name of the domain (for example, Waltham1).

IMPORTANT:Do not create the new domain until you are instructed to do so in Section 32.0, Setting Up a Domain and a Post Office in a Heartbeat Cluster.
