Installing multiple instances of HCL Traveler on Linux or AIX

You can install multiple instances of the HCL Traveler server on Linux® or AIX® operating systems.

Requirements for multiple instance installation include:
  • HCL Traveler must be installed on a pre-existing Domino® instance.
  • Multiple instances of HCL Traveler must use different network addresses or different ports on the same address. See Configuring ports for a partition for more information.
  • Use the following silent install steps for installing multiple HCL Traveler instances. The UI installer cannot handle a multi-instance install.
  • For information on HCL Traveler system requirements, see the system requirements for your HCL Traveler version.

  • Prior to installing, read the documentation on planning, installation and configuration.
To install multiple instances of HCL Traveler on Linux or AIX, perform the following procedure:
  1. 1.Extract the install package tar file to a temporary location:
    tar -xf Traveler_10.0.tar
  2. Open the installer.properties file and modify these parameters:
    • DOMINO_PROGRAM_DIRECTORY - Domino program directory for this instance. For example:
      DOMINO_PROGRAM_DIRECTORY=/opt/HCL/HCL/notes/latest/linux
    • DOMINO_DATA_DIRECTORY_1 - Domino data directory for this instance. For example: DOMINO_DATA_DIRECTORY_1=/local/notesdata
    • DOMINO_NOTESINI_DIRECTORY_1 - Directory containing the notes.ini file for this instance. For example:
      DOMINO_NOTESINI_DIRECTORY_1=/local/notesdata
    • MULTI_INSTANCE_INSTALL=true - This indicates to the installer that this will be a multi-instance install.
    • NTS_INSTALL_INSTANCE - Use this parameter when upgrading an existing instance. It is not needed for installing a new instance. Set this value to equal the value in the notes.ini file for this instance. The server should correctly detect this value, but setting it will guarantee the correct instance is upgraded. For example:
      NTS_INSTALL_INSTANCE=1

    For a description of other installer.properties settings, see Installing in silent mode on Linux or AIX operating systems.

  3. Stop the Domino server for the instance being installed.
  4. Run the HCL Traveler silent install.
    ./silentInstall
    
  5. If any fatal errors occur they will be logged to ./InstallerError.log. Otherwise, the install log file can be found at data/IBM_TECHNICAL_SUPPORT/traveler/logs/TravelerInstall.log.
  6. Start the Domino server.
