The considerations involved in planning a new domain in a clustering environment are essentially the same as for any other environment.
If you are setting up a new GroupWise system in a clustering environment, you are creating the primary domain as you complete the tasks in this section. To prepare, review
Planning a Basic GroupWise System, then print and fill out the
Basic GroupWise System Worksheet in
Installing a Basic GroupWise System in the GroupWise 2012 Installation Guide. This covers planning the primary domain and an initial post office in the primary domain.
If your GroupWise system already exists, you are creating a new secondary domain. To prepare, review
Planning a New Domain, then print and fill out the
New Domain Summary Sheet in
Domains in the GroupWise 2012 Administration Guide.
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, remember that it will be on a GroupWise partition, not on the node where you will be running the GroupWise Installation program.
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 9: Domain Name, transfer the domain name and database directory to the System Clustering Worksheet.
Under Item 7: GroupWise Partition for Domain, transfer the domain location to the System Clustering Worksheet. Also specify the secondary IP address of the shared partition where you plan to create the domain.
IMPORTANT:Do not create the new domain until you are instructed to do so in Section 3.0, Setting Up a Domain and a Post Office in a Linux Cluster.
