Oracle Communications Calendar Server for CALDAV Clients Initial Configuration
Version 7 Update 1

After you install the Calendar Server software by using the Communications Suite installer, you must configure Calendar Server to complete the installation. You perform this initial runtime configuration by running the Calendar Server configuration program, init-config.

  1. If you haven't done so already, run the comm_dssetup.pl script, which is installed by the Communications Suite installer, to prepare the Directory Server LDAP.
    See Communications Suite Directory Server Setup Script (comm_dssetup.pl).
    Note
    You can use LDAP Schema 1. Some additional steps are necessary after configuring Directory Server and Calendar Server 7 Update 1. See Configuring Calendar Server 7 Update 1 to Use LDAP Schema 1 step.
  2. Configure Calendar Server by running the init-config command and responding to the prompts.
    After you install the Calendar Server software, you must configure the Calendar Server to complete the installation. You perform this initial runtime configuration by running the Calendar Server configuration program, init-config.
    1. Log in as or become superuser (root).
      Note
      Log in as "su -" when running init-config if you installed GlassFish Server with secure mode.
    2. Change to the cal-svr-base/sbin directory.
      The default installation directory is /opt/sun/comms/davserver.
    3. Run the script.
      See Oracle Communications Calendar Server init-config Syntax for more information.
      ./init-config
      

      For example, to run the configuration script in command-line mode, run the following command:

      ./init-config -nodisplay
      
    4. Respond to the prompts that appear on each panel.
      Note
      For the text of the information contained in the various questions presented by the script, refer to the Configuration Worksheets - Oracle Communications Calendar Server.
      1. Panel 1: Select the Directory to store the configuration and data files.
        The default directory is /var/opt/sun/comms/davserver.
      2. Panel 2: Select Components to be Configured.
        The default is Oracle Communications Calendar Server 7 Update 1.
      3. Panel 3: Network Connection.
        Type your host name and DNS domain name.
      4. Panel 4: MySQL Server Configuration Details.
        Type the following information:
        • MySQL Server host name (default: localhost)
        • Port number (default: 3306)
        • Runtime userID (default: caldav)
        • Password
        • Default calendar database (default: caldav)
          A pop-up message appears if you do not have the correct value entered for the MySQL Server:
          Unable to connect to the MySQL server: <hostname>:3306. This may result in an incomplete configuration, if you accept the current MySQL server host and port details. Select Accept if you want to continue configuration using the current values.
          

          You can click either the Accept or Choose New button.
      5. Panel 5: Specify the directory for the document (attachment) store.
        The default is /var/opt/sun/comms/davserver/db.
      6. Panel 6: Application Server Configuration Details.
        Type the following information:
        • Installation Directory (default: /opt/SUNWappserver)
        • Domain Directory (default: /opt/SUNWappserver/domains/domain1)
        • Document Root Directory (default: /opt/SUNWappserver/domains/domain1/docroot)
        • Server Target Name: (default: server)
        • Virtual Server Identifier (default: server)
        • Server Instance HTTP Port (default: 8080)
      7. Panel 7: Application Server: Administration Instance Details.
        Type the following information:
        • Administration Server Port (default: 4848)
        • Administrator User ID (default: admin)
        • Administrator Password
        • Secure Administration Server Instance (selected by default)
          The "Secure Administration Server Instance" setting identifies if GlassFish Server is configured for secure mode, and thus determines how Calendar Server ought to contact GlassFish Server.
      8. Panel 8: URI Path.
        The default URI path is /. Type a different value if you are using your GlassFish container for more applications. For example, you might use /davserver, or /cal, and so forth. Using / as the URI path replaces the GlassFish Server's main index.html, thus, the GlassFish welcome page no longer is displayed at http://host:port.
      9. Panel 9: User/Group Directory Server Details.
        Type the following information:
        • LDAP URL (default: ldap://hostname:389)
        • Bind DN (default: cn=Directory Manager)
        • Bind Password
          A pop-up message appears if you do not have the latest version of comm_dssetup.pl. You must use at least comm_dssetup.pl 6.4 version 1.04.
          A pop-up message also appears if you do not have the correct value entered for the Directory Server:
          Could not connect to LDAP server.  Error code 91. Connect Error.
          

          If this message appears, click Choose New.

          Note
          Use the LDAP URL that points to the non-SSL LDAP port. If you need SSL communication between Calendar Server and Directory Server, you can do so as a post-configuration step.
      10. Panel 10: DC Tree Suffix.
        The default is o=dav.
      11. Panel 11: Default Domain Name.
        Type the Domain Name on which your host resides.
      12. Panel 12: Notification Mail Server Configuration Details.
        Type the following information:
        • Mail Server Host Name (default: hostname.domainname)
          Mail Server Port Number (default: 25)
      13. Panel 13: CalDAV Server Administrator.
        Type the user name (the default is calmaster) and the password.
        Notes
        • To enable SSL communication between Calendar Server and Directory Server, you can do so as a post-configuration step. See Oracle Communications Calendar Server for CALDAV Clients Post Configuration for more information.
        • Currently, the default setting for the timezone (davcore.serverdefaults.tzid) is configured based on the tzid of the host where Calendar Server is deployed.
  3. Click Configure Now to configure Calendar Server.
    Up to now the screens have been gathering data needed for the configuration and performing some validity checking. You can go back and redo the configuration information at this point, or start the configuration.
  4. The Sequence Completed Screen appears.
    This panel provides a running update of all the tasks and the disposition (passed or failed). When the message "All Tasks Passed", the configuration has finished. Check the log files indicated to see if there are any error messages.
  5. Click Next when the configuration program completes.
    The Configuration Summary Screen appears.
  6. Click Details to view the details of the configuration log or Close to exit the configuration program.
  7. If you are configuring Calendar Server 7 Update 1 for LDAP Schema 1, see To Configure Oracle Communications Calendar Server for CALDAV Clients to Use LDAP Schema 1.
  8. Restart GlassFish Server, for example:
  9. Return to the Installation Scenario - Oracle Communications Calendar Server to verify the installation.
