Use the IBM
® Sametime System Console to create a cluster of Sametime Servers hosted on IBM WebSphere
® Application Server. The Sametime servers must all be running the same type of server; for example, Sametime Meeting Server, Sametime Proxy Server, Sametime Media Manager Conference Manager, Sametime Media Manager SIP Proxy and Registrar, or Sametime Advanced.
Before you begin
Start the Sametime System Console and the servers you intend to cluster.
This guided activity is only for Sametime servers hosted on IBM WebSphere
Application Server, and does not apply to the Sametime Community Server.
About this task
Multiple product clusters are not supported on a single computer. For example, you cannot have two Meeting Server clusters on a single server. However, vertical clusters (all cluster members installed on the Primary Node) are supported when each product cluster is on a dedicated computer. A horizontal cluster is defined as a cluster with each cluster member having a dedicated computer (one on the Primary Node and one on each Secondary Node).
If you have not already opened the Cluster WebSphere
Application Servers guided activity, follow these steps:

Guided activity: Clustering SIP Proxy and Registrars
This guided activity takes you through the steps for clustering new IBM Sametime
servers hosted on IBM WebSphere
Application Server. The servers you add to the cluster must all be running the same Sametime
product application; for example, Sametime
Meeting Server, Sametime
Proxy Server, Sametime
Media Manager Conference Manager, Sametime
Media Manager SIP Proxy and Registrar, or Sametime
