You can create a new post office in the same cluster resource group where its domain resides or in a separate cluster resource group. If the post office and its domain are in the same cluster resource group, they fail over together. If they are in separate cluster resource groups, they fail over separately.
To create a new post office in a clustering environment:
In the HA Management Client, start the EVMS container resource and the file system resource in order to mount the shared storage partition where the domain that will own the new post office is located.
If necessary, start the EVMS container resource and the file system resource for the new post office.
Use the Post Office Worksheet you filled out in Section 13.4, Planning a New Clustered Post Office to fill in the fields in the Create GroupWise Post Office dialog box.
Refer to the GroupWise Clustering Worksheet that you filled in during Section 13.6, Deciding How to Install and Configure the Linux Agents in a Cluster for the secondary IP address and port numbers that you need to specify in order to configure the link.
If you want to create a library at the post office, select.
This option creates the document storage area for the library under the post office directory and is not recommended for large libraries.
Right-click the new POA object, then click.
On the POA Agent Settings and Scheduled Events pages, you might want to specify unique times for the following POA activities to prevent multiple POAs from performing the same activities on the same node at the same time during a failover situation:
Start User Upkeep
Generate Address Book for Remote
Enable QuickFinder Indexing
Mailbox/Library Maintenance Event
For more information about these repetitive POA activities, see GroupWise 7 Administration Guide.
Make sure you are still connected to the domain that owns the new post office.
The database rebuild is necessary in order to transfer the POA configuration information and the post office link information into the post office database, because the POA for the new post office is not yet running.
If you want to create a library with its document storage area outside the post office directory, follow the steps in GroupWise 7 Administration Guide, after you have completely finished setting up the clustered post office.
Continue with Installing and Configuring the MTA and the POA in a Cluster to install the POA software for the new post office.
