After you have set up the primary domain and initial post office, as described in Section 14.1, Setting Up a New GroupWise System in a Linux Cluster, you can create additional secondary domains in your GroupWise system as needed.
To create a new secondary domain in a clustering environment:
Mount the GroupWise partition where the new secondary domain will be created.
Use the Domain Worksheet you filled out in Section 13.3, Planning a New Clustered Domain to fill in the fields in the Create GroupWise Domain dialog box.
In the Link to Domain field, link the new domain to the primary domain of your GroupWise system.
Use the Link Configuration tool to change the links from the new domain to all other domains in the cluster to direct TCP/IP links, following the steps provided in GroupWise 8 Administration Guide.
Although a complete mesh link configuration is the most efficient, it might not be feasible in all situations. Set up as many direct TCP/IP links as possible for best MTA performance in the cluster.
Make sure you are still connected to the primary domain.
The database rebuild is necessary in order to transfer the MTA configuration information and the domain link information into the secondary domain database, because the MTA for the new domain is not yet running.
Skip to Installing and Configuring the MTA and the POA in a Cluster to install the MTA software for the new domain.
