Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installation Planning Guide

Adding Installation Procedures for Messaging Server to Your Installation Plan

To add installation and configuration instructions for Messaging Server, do the following:

  1. If theMessaging Server instances are load balanced, the first instruction in your installation plan is confirming that the load balancer is functioning before anyJava ES software is installed.

  2. If your solution uses Sun Cluster software, Messaging Server has a local dependency on Sun Cluster software. Do the following:

    1. Each computer that runs an instance of Messaging Server must a Sun Cluster node. The Sun Cluster software must be installed, configured, and verified before Messaging Server is installed.

    2. In your plan, list all of the computers that run clustered Messaging Server instances.

    3. For each computer, add the instructions for installing Sun Cluster software. For the Sun Cluster software installation instructions, see Sun Cluster Software. For an example installation plan that shows how to run the installer multiple times on a computer to set up clustered components, see Table 3–4.

  3. Next, in your plan, list all of the computers with Messaging Server instances.

    Tip –

    If your solution uses clustered Messaging Server instances, this is the second time the installer runs on the computers designated for Messaging Server.

    1. In your plan, for each computer, add an instruction to run the Java ES installer and select Messaging Server.

    2. If the computers that run Access Managerare already listed in your plan (for example, if Directory Server is installed on the same computer) add an instruction to select Access Manager. You can install Access Manager at the same time as Directory Server, even if you use the configure now option, but your plan must put the instructions for configuring, starting, and verifying the Directory Server instances before the instructions for configuring or starting any instance Access Manager.

  4. Underneath each Messaging Server instance, list the key values for configuring the instance. Use to help you select configuration values.

  5. Directory Preparation Tool-need table of configuration values.

  6. For each computer, add an instruction to start and verify the Messaging Server instance.

  7. If the Messaging Serverinstances are load balanced, add an instruction to verify operation of the load balancer.

  8. If the Messaging Server instances are clustered, add an instruction to complete the cluster configuration by installing the Sun ClusterAgents for Messaging Server and verifying their operation. You can find the instructions for the Sun Cluster Agent in Sun Cluster Software.
