Ensure that you have completed HA configuration on Node 1 as described in the previous procedure (To Configure HA on Node 1 Using a Local Disk for Configuration Files and Binaries).
Install products and packages using the Java Enterprise System installer.
Choose the same path you used when you installed Instant Messaging on node 1 for each subsequent node in the cluster. See Selecting the Installation Directory (im-svr-base) for specific instructions.
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.
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 the same value that you provided for Node 1.
When prompted for the Instant Messaging host name, enter the same logical host you provided for Node 1.
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.
When prompted for the user and group, enter the same value that you provided for Node 1.
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.
