36.3 Planning a New Clustered Post Office

The considerations involved in planning a new post office in a Microsoft cluster are essentially the same as for any other environment. The initial post office in a new GroupWise system is planned on the Basic GroupWise System Worksheet. To plan additional new post offices, review Planning a New Post Office , then print and fill out the Post Office Worksheet in Post Offices in the GroupWise 8 Administration Guide. When you specify the locations for the post office directories, include the shared disks where you want the post office directories to reside.

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


Under Item 8: Post Office Name, transfer the post office name and directory to the System Clustering Worksheet.

IMPORTANT:Do not create the new post office until you are instructed to do so in Section 37.0, Setting Up a Domain and Post Office in a Microsoft Cluster.
