These installation notes pertain to the Messaging Server 6.3 release:
Use the Communications Services installer to install Messaging Server.
For installation instructions, see the Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Installation Guide.
Next, you must configure Messaging Server by:
Running the Directory Server Preparation Tool, comm_dssetup.pl .
Running the Messaging Server configuration program.
For configuration instructions, see the Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.3 Administration Guide
The following changes were implemented in the latest version of comm_dssetup.pl , the program that prepares the directory server for Messaging Server use:
Silent Installation: password change
-w dirmanager_passwd has been deprecated in favor of -j passwd_file
for more changes to comm_dssetup.pl.
If you are upgrading to Messaging Server 6.3 from an earlier release, follow the upgrade instructions in the Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Upgrade Guide.
If you are installing Messaging Server for the first time or upgrading from an earlier version of Messaging Server, ensure that you have the following entry in /etc/hosts file on your Solaris system:
<ip-of system> <FQHN> <hostname>
For Example, 188.8.131.52 budgie.siroe.varrius.com budgie
On Solaris 10 platforms, you not only have to add the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) to the /etc/hosts file, but also to the /etc/inet/ipnodes file. Otherwise, you will get an error indicating that your host name is not a Fully Qualified Domain Name.
After upgrading Messaging Server, you must increase the number of file descriptors by setting the ulimit as follows:
ulimit -n number_of_file_descriptors
ulimit -n 100000
For more information about the upgrade procedure, see Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Upgrade Guide.
If you choose to use a Messaging Server 6.3 back-end with a Messaging Server 6 2005Q4 front-end, you need to configure the front end to run without an Administration Server as follows:
Install and configure the Messaging Server 6.3 back-end using the Communications Suite 5 installer.
Run the Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 installer to install the Messaging Server 6 2005Q4 front-end and choose the Configure Later option when prompted.
Open msg-svr-base/lib/config-templates/DevsetupDefaults.properties in a text editor.
Change the following line:
ADMINSERVER_SERVERROOT_CONF = /etc/mps/admin/v.5.2/shared/config/serverroot.conf
ADMINSERVER_SERVERROOT_CONF = NO_ADMIN_SERVER
