Creating a community ID for all nodes in a clusterAdded by IBM on November 23, 2011 | Version 1 (Original)
|To ensure that clients recognize all nodes in a cluster as belonging to a single community, you must add an ST_COMMUNITY_ID value to sametime.ini.
To ensure that clients recognize all nodes in a cluster as belonging to a single community, you must add an ST_COMMUNITY_ID value to sametime.ini.
About this task
Follow these steps to add the same ST_COMMUNITY_ID parameter to each Community Server node in a cluster. Doing so prevents clients from creating redundant communities for servers that are in the same cluster.
- Open a text editor on the Sametime Community Server.
- Open the sametime.ini file located in the Sametime Community Server installation directory. The default directories are listed below:
In the [Config] section, add the community ID. The value can be any descriptive string, not necessarily a domain name. Use this syntax:
- AIX®: /local/notesdata
- Linux®: /local/notesdata
- Solaris: /local/notesdata
- Windows®: C:\Lotus\Domino
Save the sametime.ini file.
Repeat the procedure for every Community server in the cluster.
Restart each Community Server after saving the change to the sametime.ini file.
For example, the following value names the community sametime.example.com
What to do next
Proceed to Setting up the load-balancing mechanism (rotating DNS or Network Dispatcher)
