The GroupWise Installation Advisor walks you through setting up the primary domain and an initial post office in the primary domain. You might be creating your primary domain and initial post office in the same resource group or in two different resource groups. After you have created the primary domain and initial post office and installed the GroupWise agents, you can create additional secondary domains and post offices in the cluster as needed.
To set up the primary domain and initial post office for a new GroupWise system in a Microsoft cluster:
If necessary, map a drive to each GroupWise administration shared disk (System Clustering Worksheet item 3).
Map a drive to the shared disk of the domain resource group (System Clustering Worksheet item 6) and, if needed, to the shared disk of the post office resource group (System Clustering Worksheet item 7), where the primary domain and the initial post office for your new GroupWise system will be created.
This step is not required, but in a Microsoft cluster, the following step is easier if the directory already exists.
Run the GroupWise Installation Advisor to set up your initial GroupWise system, following the steps provided in GroupWise 8 Installation Guide. Keep in mind the following cluster-specific details:
When you specify the ConsoleOne directory and the software distribution directory, be sure to browse to each location through the shared disk accessed in Step 1 above.
For the post office link type, select.
When providing the MTA and POA network address information, use the Agent Clustering Worksheet that you filled out in Section 36.8, Deciding How to Install and Configure the Agents in a Cluster. The information you provide will be used to configure the MTA and POA objects in the domain and post office even though you have not yet installed the agent software.
Do not create users in the post office at this time.
In the Summary dialog box, the domain directory and post office directory that you browsed to should display as UNC paths using the network name of the GroupWise resource group, not the name of a specific node in the cluster.
The GroupWise Installation Advisor starts the Agent Installation program for you.
