We are planning to deploy a Domino server. We are planning to partition the server into two, where one will be the internal correspondence server behind a firewall which will serve the company LAN and one will be accessible from the Internet. But we encountered a problem setting up the partitioned server. Can you please give me details on setting up the partitioned servers and tips on deploying it, as is our plan?
Setting up partitioning is fairly straight forward. You do an install, as you usually would, except you tell the installation it is a partition install. How you do this depends on if it is Windows, Linux, OS/400, etc., but it is all menu or GUI driven.
From there, you choose your data drive for the first instance, and the installation begins. To install the second partition, go through setup again, and it will recognize the initial partition and ask you for information about the data and name for the second partition.
Once you are installed, all you have to do is change the notes.ini settings (which are now in each respective data directory) to point to the correct IP addresses. You can find all of the setting changes you need in the Administration Help database.
