Install products and packages using the Java Enterprise System installer.
See Selecting the Installation Directory (im-svr-base) for specific instructions on choosing an installation directory.
See Table 4–3 for a list of required products and packages for HA. Refer to the Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Installation Guide for specific instructions.
If you are using HAStoragePlus for the runtime files, mount a shared disk to a local directory, otherwise skip to Step 3.
Create the mount point (/local/im/im-runtime-base/) if it does not already exist.
When prompted during configuration in Step 4 you will specify this directory (/local/im/im-runtime-base/) as the Instant Messaging Server Runtime Files Directory.
Use the mount command to mount the disk on /local/im/im-runtime-base.
Run the configure utility.
See Chapter 1, Configuring Instant Messaging After Installation for instructions.
When prompted for the Instant Messaging Server Runtime Files Directory, enter one of the following:
If you are using an HAStoragePlus for the runtime files, enter /local/im/im-runtime-base/.
If you are using a cluster file system for the runtime files, enter /global/im/im-runtime-base/. Where /global/im is the global directory in the cluster file system.
When prompted for the Instant Messaging host name, enter the logical host.
Choose to accept the logical host even if the configure utility cannot connect to the specified host. The logical host resource may be offline at the time you run the configure utility.
Do not choose to start Instant Messaging after configuration or on system startup.
In an HA configuration, the Instant Messaging service also requires the logical host to be online for Instant Messaging to work properly.
If you are using HAStoragePlus for runtime files, unmount the shared disk.
