Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q4 Installation Planning Guide

Basic Installation Procedures for Calendar Server

  1. Determine which redundancy strategy, if any, your solution is using for messaging services.

    • If your solution uses load-balancing.

    • If your solution uses clustered calendar services, the Sun Cluster software must be installed, configured, and verified before Calendar Server.

  2. Use the Java ES installer to install Calendar Server on all computers systems specified in your deployment architecture. The installer does not configure instances of Messaging Server.

  3. If necessary, run the Directory Preparation Tool on the computer that is running Directory Server. If your solution includesMessaging Server, the Directory Preparation Tool is run as part of Messaging Server configuration.

  4. Run the Calendar Server configuration wizard.

    1. When you configure Calendar Server you must specify the Directory Server instance where information about Calendar Server users is stored.

    2. When you configure Calendar Server you supply the name of the LDAP directory branch where user and group data is stored. This is normally the branch created by the Messaging Server configuration wizard.

  5. Start and verify all instances of Calendar Server.

  6. If your solution includes Sun Cluster software, install, configure, start, and verify the Sun Cluster Agent for Messaging Server.

  7. If your solution includes single sign-on, configure Calendar Server for single sign-on, restart Calendar Server, and verify functioning of single sign-on.

  8. If your solution uses load balancing for the Calendar Server instances, verify that the load balancer is working properly.
