Configuring Mail Security in the Exchange Service Group

Do the following to properly configure Mail Security in the Exchange Service Group:

  • Create a MountV resource.

    Create a mount resource if you use NetApps.

  • Create a Mail Security resource.

  • Specify dependencies.

  • Bring the resources online.

Note:

You do not need to cluster the Symantec Mail Security Utility service. The Mail Security cluster agent does not monitor the Symantec Mail Security Utility service.

To create a MountV resource

  1. Add a new MountV resource.

    MountV resource is an option in the Resource Type list.

  2. Type a name for the resource.

  3. Assign the following resource attributes:

    MountPath

    The drive letter or the folder name of the volume that you created

    VolumeName

    The volume name that you created

    VMDGResName

    The name of the volume manager disk group resource on which the MountV resource depends

  4. Ensure that you do not set the value of the resource to Critical.

    This setting ensures that the Exchange service group does not failover to another node if either of the resources fail during setup.

To create a Mail Security resource

  1. Add a new SMSMSEVCSClusterResource.

    SMSMSEVCSClusterResource is an option in the Resource Type list.

  2. Type a name for the resource.

  3. Assign the following resource attributes:

    LanmanResName

    The resource name of the Lanman resource that exists in the Exchange service group

    MountResName

    The resource name of the MountV that you created

  4. Ensure that you do not set the value of the resource to Critical.

    This setting ensures that the Exchange service group does not failover to another node if either of the resources fail during setup.

To specify dependencies

  • Create the following dependencies:

    • SMSMSEVCSClusterResource is a parent to the MountV resource that you created.

    • SMSMSEVCSClusterResource is a parent to the Lanman resource.

    • The MountV resource that you created is a parent to the VMDg resource.

To bring the resources online

  1. Enable the MountV resource that you created.

  2. Set the resource back to Critical, if desired.

  3. Online the MountV resource on the active Exchange node.

  4. Enable the SMSMSEVCSClusterResource.

  5. Set the resource back to Critical, if desired.

  6. Bring the SMSMSEVCSClusterResource on the active Exchange node online.

  7. Save and close the configuration.
