Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Release Notes

Multiple Domain Mode By Default in Calendar Server 6.3

In the earliest versions of Calendar Server software, there was no domain structure. All user and group LDAP records resided under the root. Then in later versions, you could choose to establish one or more domains, called variously hosted domains or virtual domains. With the release of Calendar Server 6.3 software, all installations are required to use multiple domain mode by default. That is, you must have at least one domain, a default domain, that resides under the root domain. All user and group LDAP entries must reside under this default domain, or you can choose to have more domains. When you are in multiple domain mode, each canonical domain must containing unique user and group IDs. For more information on multiple domains, see theSun Java System Calendar Server 6.3 Administration Guide, specifically Chapter 10, Setting Up a Multiple Domain Calendar Server 6.3 Environment, in Sun Java System Calendar Server 6.3 Administration Guide.

The configuration program,, which you must run to create the runtime environment, will prompt you for the name of your default domain. If that domain does not exist, the program will create it for you.

If your previous Calendar Server deployment did not use multiple domains, or even a single domain, you need to move user and group LDAP records under the new default domain.

To create additional domains in a Schema version 2 environment, use Sun Java System Delegated Administrator Console or Utility. For more information about Delegated Administrator, refer to the Sun Java System Delegated Administrator 6.4 Administration Guide.

If you use Schema version 1 and you are not migrating to Schema version 2, you can use the Calendar Server utility csdomain to create additional domains.
