The GroupWise Installation program 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 on the same GroupWise partition or on two different partitions. After you have created the primary domain and initial post office and then installed the GroupWise agents on multiple nodes in the cluster, you can create additional secondary domains and post offices as needed.
To set up the primary domain and initial post office for a new GroupWise system in a clustering environment:
Start with the first node on the domain failover list (Agent Clustering Worksheet item 2).
Make sure that ConsoleOne is installed on the node.
If necessary, you can download ConsoleOne for Linux from the Novell Product Downloads site. ConsoleOne is always installed in /usr/Consoleone.
Mount the GroupWise partition for the domain (System Clustering Worksheet item 7) and, if needed, the GroupWise partition for the post office (System Clustering Worksheet item 8), where the primary domain and the initial post office for your new GroupWise system will be created.
IMPORTANT:Do not select theoption at this time.
When you set up the software distribution directory, install all the agent software.
Although this is not required when creating your initial domain and post office, it makes installation of the other GroupWise agents easier after you have created the initial domain and post office.
From the Installation program, run ConsoleOne to set up your initial GroupWise system, as described in GroupWise 8 Installation Guide.
When providing the MTA and POA network address information, use the Agent Clustering Worksheet that you filled out in Section 13.6, Deciding How to Install and Configure the Linux Agents in a Cluster. The information you provide is used to configure the MTA and POA objects in the domain and post office even though you have not yet installed the agent software on any nodes in the cluster.
Do not create users in the post office at this time.
When you have finished creating the primary domain and the initial post office, clickto exit the GroupWise Installation program without installing the agent software.
