30.5 Planning a New Library for a Clustered Post Office

The considerations involved in planning a new library in a clustering environment are essentially the same as for any other environment. However, in a Linux cluster, you should not plan to locate a document storage area on a remote server. If you choose to place it outside the post office directory structure, it should still be located on the same server with the post office directory. Ideally, you should create a dedicated post office just to house the library. This provides easy access for all users.

You can plan a library for a clustered post office by following the standard instructions provided in Creating and Managing Libraries in the GroupWise 7 Administration Guide and filling out the Basic Library Worksheet or the Full-Service Library Worksheet. Then provide the library information on the GroupWise Clustering Worksheet.


Under Item 6: Document Storage Area Location, mark where you want to create the library’s document storage area.

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