Cluster Install for Single-Node ConfigurationFor Red Hat Cluster Suite Integration Zimbra Collaboration Suite (ZCS) can be integrated with Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® Cluster Suite version 4, update 3 to provide high availability.In a single-node cluster implementation, all Zimbra servers are part of a cluster under the control of the Red Hat Cluster Manager. Note: Red Hat Cluster Suite consists of Red Hat Cluster Manager and Linux Virtual Server Cluster. For ZCS, only Red Hat Cluster Manager is used. In this guide, Red Hat Cluster Suite refers only to Cluster Manager.This chapter describes configuring one active node and one standby node in a cluster environment. In the example commands in this guide, both the service name and the domain name are mail.example.com. Pre-configuration RequirementsBoth servers must meet the requirements described in the Zimbra Collaboration Suite Quick Start Guide for single server installations, in addition to the requirements described here. For the latest copy of this guide, go to http://www.zimbra.com/products/documentation.html.Go to the Red Hat Cluster Suite website, https://www.redhat.com/software/rha/cluster to view specific system requirements for cluster configurations using Red Hat Cluster Suite. If you are not familiar with the Red Hat Cluster Suite, read the documentation to understand how each of the components works to provide high availability.ZCS License RequirementsA Zimbra license is required in order to create accounts in ZCS. See the Quick Start Guide for more details.The license file should be saved to a directory on the active node. During the installation you will be asked to enter the file name and location.Hardware for the Cluster EnvironmentFor Red Hat Cluster Suite integration, the following hardware is required.Network Edition 4.5 January 2007 1Zimbra Collaboration Suite • SAN (shared disk storage device) to store the data for each of the Zimbra servers. The size of the shared storage device depends on your expected site capacity. • Network power control switch to connect cluster nodes. The power control switch is used as the fence device for I/O fencing during a failover. ZCS recommends that you use either a APC or a WTI network power switch. If you do not use one of these power switches, you will need to manually edit the configuration after the installation is complete.Configure the network power control switch according to the manufacturer’s requirements. Software Requirements For Clustering• The Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, Update 3 operating system installed on each server node configured with the same netmask and broadcast address.• To use the Red Hat Cluster Configuration Tool GUI, install X Window and a desktop enviornment such as GNOME or KDE.• Red Hat Cluster Suite, Update 3 or later on each server node.Preparing the SANNote: You can place all service data on a single volume or choose to place the service data in ten volumes. A more customized volume configuration is possible, but the configurator script only supports single- or ten-volume volume sets. This is a limitation of the configurator script, not of Zimbra Collaboration Suite or of Red Hat Cluster Suite.Configure the SAN device and create the partitions for the volumes. Refer to the Red Hat Cluster Suite documentation for configuration requirements. • If you select to configure the SAN in one volume with subdirectories, all service data goes under a single SAN volume.• If you select to partition the SAN into 10 volumes, the SAN device is partitioned to provide the following volumes for each Zimbra server in the cluster. • confVolume for the service-specific configuration files• logVolume for the local logs for Zimbra server• redologVolume for the redo logs for the Zimbra server • db/dataVolume for the MySQL data files for the data store• storeVolume for the message files• indexVolume for the search index files• backupVolume for the backup files2 January 2007 Network Edition 4.5 Cluster Install for Single-Node Configuration For Red Hat Cluster Suite Integration• logger/db/dataVolume for the MySQL data files for logger service’s MySQL instance• openldap-dataVolume for OpenLDAP data• postfix/spoolVolume for PostfixspoolInstalling the Zimbra Cluster SoftwareThe Zimbra Cluster software consists of install.pl, postinstall.pl, and configure-cluster.pl scripts to automate the cluster configuration process and files that are used during the Zimbra cluster service operation.Installing and configuring a single server for a cluster environment requires that you configure both servers in a specific sequence. Flow of Installation:1. On the Active node • Run cluster install.pl to install the necessary files, define users and groups, and create the mount points for the clustered service.• Install Zimbra Collaboration Suite. All packages are installed2. On the Standby node• Run cluster install.pl to install the necessary files and define users and groups • Install Zimbra Collaboration Suite. All packages are installed (software only)• Set up syslog and MTA auth3. On the Active node• Set up syslog and MTA auth4. On the Standby node • Run the cluster postinstall.pl program5. On the Active node• Mount the SAN volume(s)• Run the cluster postinstall.pl program • Run the cluster configurator script, configure-cluster.pl, to prepare the Red Hat Cluster Suite • Copy the cluster config. file to the standby node• Start Red Hat Cluster Suite daemons6. On the standby node, start Red Hat Cluster Suite daemonsNetwork Edition 4.5 January 2007 3 Zimbra Collaboration Suite Installing and Configuring Single-Node Cluster ServicesColumn one displays the steps preformed on the Active Host, column two, the steps preformed on the Standby. The arrow identifies when you must continue the configuration on the other host. IMPORTANT: These steps must be followed precisely because what you do on one node requires the other node to be in a specific state in order to be correctly configured.Active Standby1. Bring up the service IP address on the active node.[root@node1 ~]# ip addr add xx.xx.xxx.xx dev eth02. Run the cluster install.pl:•tar xzvf zcs-cluster.tgz to unpack the file•cd zcs-clusterto change to the correct directory•./install.pl to begin the installation The necessary files are installed.Each Zimbra cluster node requires Zimbra and Postfix users and groups The same user and group IDs must be used on both nodes.a. Type the zimbra group ID (GID) to be used. The default is 500. b. Type the postfix group ID. The default is 501.c. Type the postdrop group ID. The default is 502.d. Type the zimbra user ID (UID) to be used. The default is 500. e. Type the postfix user ID. The default is 501.The root directory for the mount points is created.4 January 2007 Network Edition 4.5 Cluster Install for Single-Node Configuration For Red Hat Cluster Suite IntegrationActive Standbyf. Mount point(s) are created for the cluster service. Type the service name when prompted. g. Type Done, when finished.3. Install the ZCS software. All packages should be installed. SNMP is optional. See the Quick Start Installation Guide for detailed installation instruction.To automatically install the Zimbra license during the install process, type ./install.pl -l /<directory>/ZCSLicense.xml.<directory> is the directory were you saved this file.During the installation make the following changesWhen the DNS error to resolve MX displays, enter yes to change the domain name. Modify the domain name to the cluster service hostname (not the active node hostname).On the Main Menu make the following changes• Host name and LDAP master host name must be changed from the active node hostname to the cluster service hostname.• Note the LDAP password. You will need it later.• Change the admin password.• Install the license file. Enter the directory and file name for the Zimbra license.When the ZCS installation is complete, there should be no reference to the active node hostname. Network Edition 4.5 January 2007 5 Zimbra Collaboration Suite Active Standby4. On the Standby host run, run the cluster install.pl:•tar xzvf zcs-cluster.tgz to unpack the file•cd zcs-cluster to change to the correct directory•./install.pl to begin the installation The necessary files are installed.Each Zimbra cluster node requires Zimbra and Postfix users and groups The same user and group IDs must be used on both nodes.a. Type the zimbra group ID (GID) to be used. The default is 500. b. Type the postfix group ID. The default is 501.c. Type the postdrop group ID. The default is 502.d. Type the zimbra user ID (UID) to be used. The default is 500. e. Type the postfix user ID. The default is 501.The root directory for the mount points is created.f. Mount point(s) are created for the cluster. Type the service names when prompted. These are the same service names as on the active host.g. Type Done, when finished.6 January 2007 Network Edition 4.5 Cluster Install for Single-Node Configuration For Red Hat Cluster Suite IntegrationActive StandbyWhen you install ZCS on the standby node, you must configure the node as described below. 5. Install the ZCS software. Install the same Zimbra packages as installed on the active host. During the installation make the following changes• When the DNS error to resolve MX displays, enter yes to change the domain name. Modify the domain name to the cluster service name (not the server node name).• The DNS error appears again. This time when the installer asks “Re-Enter domain name?”, type No.Make these changes to the following Main Menu sections.• LDAP master host name must be changed to point to the LDAP server on the active node (mail.example.com). Note: this name is the service name, not the active node name.• Change the LDAP password to the password set on the active node.• zimbra-ldap. Disable LDAP on the standby node.• zimbra-store - Admin user to create: Type No. An admin account should not be created on the standby node as it is already created on the active node.Network Edition 4.5 January 2007 7 Zimbra Collaboration Suite Active Standby• zimbra-store - SMTP host: If SMTP is configured, change the SMTP host to the cluster service host. (mail.example.com)• zimbra-mta - MTA Auth host:Change the MTA’s auth host name to the cluster service host (mail.example.com)• zimbra-spell. Enter the URL.• zimbra-loggerDisable logger on the standby. It is enabled on the active node.Complete the ZCS installation on the standby node.In order for remote management and postfix queue management, the ssh keys must be manually populated on each server. 6. To set up syslog and MTA auth keys, as Zimbra user (su - zimbra). Type zmupdateauthkeys and press Enter. The keys are added to/opt/zimbra/.ssh/authorized_keys. 7. To set up syslog and MTA auth keys, as Zimbra user (su - zimbra). Type zmupdateauthkeys and press Enter. The key are added to/opt/zimbra/.ssh/authorized_keysRun cluster postinstall.pl . Postinstall must be run on the standby node first because execution of postinstall requires that the LDAP server be running. Zimbra cluster post install script is used after Zimbra Collaboration Suite is installed on the servers to move the data files from the local disk to the volume(s) created on the SAN8 January 2007 Network Edition 4.5 Cluster Install for Single-Node Configuration For Red Hat Cluster Suite IntegrationActive Standby8. To start the Zimbra post install cluster configuration script, cd to the zcs-cluster directory created in step 2. Type ./postinstall.pl to begin post install.The Zimbra processes are stopped, various cluster-specific adjustments are made to the Zimbra Collaboration Suite installation, and unnecessary data files are deleted9. Mount the SAN volume (s). You can mount one volume for all services or you can mount ten separate volumes. The following command is to mount one volume for all services. To mount by label as root type:[root@node1 zcs] mount LABEL=mysanvol /opt/zimbra-cluster/mountpoints/mail.example.com.10.Run cluster postinstall.pl. To start the Zimbra post install cluster configuration script, cd to the zcs-cluster directory created in step 2. Type ./postinstall.pl to begin post install.Network Edition 4.5 January 2007 9 Zimbra Collaboration Suite Active StandbyThe Zimbra processes are stopped, various cluster-specific adjustments are made to the Zimbra Collaboration Suite installation, and the data files are moved to the SAN volume(s).When the postinstall is complete use the Zimbra cluster configurator script to prepare Red Hat Cluster Suite to run the Zimbra Collaboration Suite. The cluster configurator script is run on only the active mailbox node.The cluster configurator asks a series of questions to gather information about the cluster and generate the cluster configuration file, /etc/cluster/cluster.conf. This is the main configuration file of Red Hat Cluster Suite.The cluster configurator installs the generated configuration file on each cluster node as /etc/cluster/cluster.conf.11.To start the Zimbra configuration script, cd to the zcs-cluster directory created in step 2. Type ./configure-cluster.pl. The configurator checks to verify that the server installation is correct.12. When Is installation finished on all cluster nodes? displays, type y to continue.13.Enter a name to identify this cluster. Press Enter. Important: Each cluster on the same network must have a distinct name. Make sure you enter a name that is not in use! Each Red Hat Cluster Suite cluster on the same network must have a distinct name to avoid interfering with another Red Hat Cluster Suite cluster. 10 January 2007 Network Edition 4.5
