To add installation and configuration instructions for Communications Express, do the following:
If theCommunications Express instances are load balanced, add an instruction to your installation plan to confirm that the load balancer is functioning before anyJava ES software is installed.
Next, in your plan, list all of the computers with Communications Express instances.
Communications Express has a local dependency on a web container. Each computer that runs an instance of Communications Express must also run an instance of the specified web container. Your deployment architecture should indicate which web container your solution is using.
For each computer, add an instruction to run the Java ES installer and select Communications Express. Add an instruction to select either Web Server or Application Server as the web container. Add an instruction to select either Access Manager SDK or Access Manager.
If the computers that run Communications Expressare already listed in your plan (if the plan already has instructions for installing another component on the same computer) simply add an instruction to select Communications Express when the installer runs. You can install Communications Express at the same time as the other components, and deploy it to the same web container, but your plan must put the instructions for configuring, starting, and verifying any Directory Server, Access Manager, Messaging Server, or Calendar Serverinstances ahead of the instructions for configuring or starting the Communications Express instances.
Add an instruction to run the Communications Express configuration wizard. Underneath this instruction, list the key values for configuring the instance. Use Table 3–11 to help you select configuration values.
Underneath each Web Server or Application Server instances, list the key values for configuring the instance. For information on selecting configuration values for these components, see Web Server or Application Server. If your plan already installs Web Server or Application Server on the computer, you do not need to repeat this step. You can deploy Communications Express to the same web container instance when you run the Communications Express configuration wizard.
For each computer, add an instruction to start and verify the Communications Express instance.
If the instances are load balanced, add an instruction to verify operation of the load balancer.
