Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Installation Guide

Planning for Calendar Server Hosted Domains

Calendar Server supports hosted (or virtual) domains. In a hosted domain installation, each domain shares the same instance of Calendar Server, which enables multiple domains to exist on a single server. Each domain defines a name space within which all users, groups, and resources are unique. Each domain also has a set of attributes and preferences that you specifically set.

When installing and configuring hosted domains, use Schema 2 only.

Installing and configuring hosted domains on a server involves these high-level steps:

  1. Installing and configuring Directory Server

  2. Installing and configuring Web Server or Application Server

  3. Installing and configuring Access Manager

    Delegated Administrator is installed with Access Manager.

  4. Creating the domains for your site using Delegated Administrator

  5. Installing Calendar Server

  6. Running the script

    For instructions on running this script, see Calendar Server Postinstallation Configuration.

  7. Configuring Communications Services Delegated Administrator

    For instructions on configuring and using the Communications Services Delegated Administrator utility, see the Sun Java System Delegated Administrator 6.4 Administration Guide.

  8. Creating default domain and site administrator (calmaster)

    The default domain is created when Delegated Administrator is configured, but the domain entry must be modified to add Calendar (or Mail) services. Also, you must set up the site calendar administrator (calmaster). For instructions on how to perform these two tasks, see Part II, Post Installation Configuration for Calendar Server 6.3 Software, in Sun Java System Calendar Server 6.3 Administration Guide.

  9. Configuring Calendar Server

    For instructions on running the program, see Chapter 2, Initial Runtime Configuration Program for Calendar Server 6.3 software (, in Sun Java System Calendar Server 6.3 Administration Guide.

  10. Setting domain configuration parameters for Calendar Server

    For a list of the configuration parameters and their values, see Calendar Server Domain Configuration Parameters in Sun Java System Calendar Server 6.3 Administration Guide.

  11. Populating your domains with users and resources using Delegated Administrator

  12. Starting Calendar Server services

    For instructions, see Starting and Stopping Calendar Server 6.3 Processes in Sun Java System Calendar Server 6.3 Administration Guide.

    Note –

    Always perform your provisioning for Schema 2 with the Communications Services Delegated Administrator interface.

    Schema 1 provisioning tools do not support hosted domains.
