Using NetApp Filers with Sun Java System Messaging Server Message Store

Configuring Messaging Server to Work with NetApp Filers

After creating the volume, you need to configure Messaging Server so that it can function with the NetApp device.

ProcedureTo Configure Messaging Server to Work with NetApp Filers

  1. Configure the temporary database directory on the Messaging Server host by setting the store.dbtmpdir parameter to a directory under /tmp.

    For example:

    configutil -o store.dbtmpdir -v /tmp/mboxlist

  2. Move the data/lock directory to a local file system, for example, /tmp.

  3. Create a symlink to the lock directory.

    For example:

    mv /var/opt/SUNWmsgsr/lock /tmp/lock
    ln -s /tmp/lock /var/opt/SUNWmsgsr/lock

    Note –

    If you do this, modify the startup script to recreate the /tmp/lock directory (with proper permissions) upon bootup. Otherwise, it won't exist and your sever will fail to start.
