Comms Suite 5 - Docs to Go (Installing on Linux)

Unfortunately, our internal pubs processes are very weighty. That's not always a bad thing, we need to ensure quality, technical accuracy, and so on. But for some docs, it doesn't make sense to make you wait while the wheels of Sun Pubdom grind slowly on.

But I'm starting to look at this blog as the ultimate cheepo publishing system, for some information at least: a docs-to-go kind of place.

Bottom line: Customers want information quickly. So I'll experiment a bit with a doc that a support expert has readied: Deployment Example: Sun Java Communications Suite 5 on a Single Host (Linux). I know some of you have requested this already, (the doc is really an updated version of the same example on Solaris) and so I'm making a decision: rather than pipe this through the normal (slowww) pubs channels and wrap the info in near-Nirvanic Sun formatting, I'm redirecting it as is to this blog.

Doc Summary: This deployment example describes how to install Sun Java Communications Suite 5 software on one Linux computer for a functioning deployment. This document is intended for any evaluator, system administrator, or installation technician who wants to install and evaluate the services delivered by these components.

Get the Deployment Example

As an experiment, I'll leave it up to this community to let me know if you find any corrections and I'll take the responsibility to keep the doc up-to-date if you find something that needs fixing. Who knows, perhaps this could become a new and faster way to get certain kinds of information into your hands.

Comments:

I ran through the same configuration for Solaris and discover an issue of not being able to create new calendars under a users account. I tried with accounts created from command line and Delegated Admin. I keep getting the error (In managing Calendars) This calendar is not accessible Any ideas? The script online for single host Solaris is somewhat out of date for JES5. I was not able to find a complete install package which included the portal software with the comms pkg. If you have any influence in/at Sun, I would like to see list of patches required for each JES version #'s. Right now it seems to be hit and miss.

re: list of Comms 5 patches, have you seen this:

Not sure about your error. You might try pinging the Calendar Server forum.

You won't find Portal Server included w/ Comms any more, as it was past releases. Comms 5 has become separated from the rest of Java ES.
