The considerations involved in planning a new domain in a Microsoft cluster are essentially the same as for any other environment.
Primary Domain: If you are setting up a new GroupWise system in a Microsoft cluster, you will be creating the primary domain as you complete the tasks in this section. In preparation, review GroupWise 8 Installation Guide. This covers planning the primary domain and an initial post office in the primary domain.
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 specify the location for the domain directory (and for a new GroupWise system, the post office directory) on the worksheet, include the shared disk where you want the directory to reside.
Do not concern yourself with the GroupWise agent information on the worksheet. You will plan the agent installation later. If you are filling out the Basic GroupWise System Worksheet, stop with Post Office Settings. If you are filling out the Domain Worksheet, stop with Domain Administrator.
When you have completed the worksheet, transfer the key information from the Basic GroupWise System Worksheet or the Domain Worksheet to the System Clustering Worksheet.
SYSTEM CLUSTERING WORKSHEET
Under Item 7: Domain Name, transfer the domain name and directory to the System Clustering Worksheet.
IMPORTANT:Do not create the new domain until you are instructed to do so in Section 37.0, Setting Up a Domain and Post Office in a Microsoft Cluster.
