  • High Availability OX 6 build

    Good Day, OpenXchange

    I've got a working install of OX 6. Its the community beta version which I got from

    My configuration today, consist of a firewall with a round robin setup forwarding both web and mail traffic between 2 RHEL5 clustered machines running a GFS setup on an iSCSI san.

    Cyrus imap is cluster aware, balancing the mx between both machines which storing the mails on GFS mail spools.

    Is OpenXchange 6 cluster aware?

    I was contemplating on having mysql in a master-master configuration, each configured as a hot standby. with alternating auto increments.

    To do this, however, I need to have the database acknowledge the existance of both machines.

    In the configdb, I find the table server, which containst the hostname of my machines. Would I have to configure the other server during this process?

    $ /opt/open-xchange/sbin/registerserver -n FirstServer -A oxadminmaster -P admin_master_password

    $ /opt/open-xchange/sbin/registerserver -n SecondServer -A oxadminmaster -P admin_master_password

    My idea was to configure the installation once on one of the servers and have the database replicated over to the slave, which would then be turned on as a hot master.

    Does anyone have any experience with a similar setup? or have a more efficient way of a High Availability setup?

    Appreciate all advice provided.
