Using Sun StorageTek 53xx NAS with Messaging Server Message Store

ProcedureTo Configure Messaging Server to Work with the Sun StorageTek 53xx NAS

  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.
