Skip Step 1 if you have already run the Directory Preparation Tool on the same Directory Server during configuration of another communications product component.

  1. Configure Directory Server for communications services (Calendar Server, Messaging Server and the Delegated Administrator) by running the Directory Preparation Tool,

    Use the instructions in Chapter 8, Directory Preparation Tool (

  2. Verify that the second column in the /etc/hosts file contains the fully-qualified domain name (FQDN) rather than a simple host name. For example: mycomputer loghost

    For information on configuring Messaging Server, refer to Creating the Initial Messaging Server Runtime Configuration in Sun Java System Messaging Server 6.3 Administration Guide.

  4. Set the number of file descriptors to be used by Messaging Server:

    ulimit -n 12851

    Set ulimit to a value no less than 12851.

  5. If you intend to use Delegated Administrator to provision users for Messaging Server, you must perform additional steps to configure it.

    Instructions for configuring Delegated Administrator and provisioning users are contained in the Sun Java System Delegated Administrator 6.4 Administration Guide.

    Caution – Caution –

    This step applies only if your installation uses LDAP Schema 2, and if this step was not done during configuration of another communications product component.
