Introduction presentation business l.jpg
Introduction: Presentation Business

  • Topic

    • We will discuss the implementation process for placing GroupWise in a clustered environment.

  • Format

    • OES NetWare Clustering: Session ASO402

    • GroupWise Cluster Planning: Session ASG307

    • GroupWise Cluster Implementation: This Session, ASG402

  • Questions

    • Please hold until “Question Breaks”

  • Knowledge:

    • Clustering Principles

    • Advanced GroupWise 6.5 (understand configuration files, parameters)

    • NetWare 6.5 (OES)


Review the plan the design matrix l.jpg
Review the Plan: The Design Matrix

  • What information did we collect?

    • Naming Standards

    • IP Addresses

    • Ports

    • Directories

    • Fail Over


Review the plan protected memory l.jpg
Review the Plan: Protected Memory

  • What is Protected Memory?

    • Administrator-defined space for NLMs

  • Why do we “love” and need Protected Memory for Clustering?

    • The cubicle office worker analogy

  • What we do not like about Protected Memory

    • Memory Used/Multiple GWENNx.NLM

    • OES Stability

  • Our Protected Memory Design

    • *MEM

      • Example: PMDOMMEM, GWIAMEM


Review the plan additional tools l.jpg
Review the Plan: Additional Tools

  • Handy tools for Clustering

    • Novell Server Consolidation Utility

    • NetWare Logger Screen

    • Cluster Monitor (CMON)

    • Cluster Resource Manager

    • NSS Management Utility (NSSMU)

Summary l.jpg
Summary

  • Best Practices

    • Knowledge -ATT Classes, Articles, Books (www.TayKratzer.com)

    • A Cluster of two is not much of a cluster, Use three nodes

    • Check the Health of GroupWise

    • Plan, Plan, Plan

    • Document, Document, Document

    • Set Standards - Names, IP Addresses, Ports

    • Use the configuration files to guarantee success

    • Not everything must failover - Acceptable Degradation

    • Not every GroupWise component must be clustered

Summary: Question Break

  • Questions? – Yet another “5”
