Summary
This article tells you how to make SMEX resource for virtual servers.
Details
Public
You can install SMEX to virtual servers on clusters during installation. Once the installation is complete, you can no longer run the setup program again to install SMEX on more servers. This is because SMEX does not support the same build upgrade in the cluster environment.
If, after the installation, you wish to add virtual servers to a cluster and have the server protected by SMEX, you must first manually create a SMEX resource for the new virtual servers.
    1. Create a SMEX resource by selecting the resource type:
      • Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server: ScanMail for Exchange Cluster Agent
      • Microsoft Exchange Server 2003: ScanMail for Exchange Cluster Agent
      • Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 SCC: ScanMail for Exchange Cluster Agent for Single Copy Cluster
      • Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 CCR: ScanMail for Exchange Cluster Agent for MNS Cluster
    2. Create a SMEX resource on the server group for the target virtual server.
      The new resources will have a dependency on resource types. Following is a list of the SMEX resource dependencies:
Microsoft Exchange 2000 ServerPhysical Disk, Network Name, and Microsoft Exchange Information store
Microsoft Exchange Server 2003Physical Disk/Mount-point Disk, Network Name, and Microsoft Exchange Information store
Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 SCCPhysical Disk/Mount-point Disk, Network name, and Exchange Information store
Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 CCRNetwork Name and Microsoft Exchange Information Store
  1. Disable the Affected group option in the SMEX resource properties.
    1. Right-click the SMEX resource and then click Properties > Advanced.
    2. Deselect the Affect group checkbox.
  2. Create a virtual directory to view the reports about the target server on each node.
    Note: Make sure that the target virtual server is on the current node.
    Create a virtual directory using:
    Internet Information Services (IIS) Web server
    1. Go to <computername> > SMEX Web Site > SMEX > virtual directory to open the IIS.
    2. Create the virtual directory.
      Enter the path directory like this: <ShareDisk on the target server>:\SMEX\data\report
    Apache Web server
    1. Open the Httpd.conf file and go to Programs > Apache HTTP Server 2.0.52 > Configure Apache Server > Edit the Apache Httpd.conf configuration file.
    2. Look for the "# SMEX Virtual Path -- Start" string.
    3. Add the following lines:
      Alias /smex// "<ShareDisk
      Label>:/SMEX/data/report/"
      <DirectoryMatch "^[<ShareDisk Label>]:/SMEX/data/report">
      Options None
      AllowOverride None
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all
      </DirectoryMatch>
    4. Save and close the file.
    5. If you are using SSL, open the Httpd.conf file and then look for the "# SMEX SSL -- Start" string.
    6. Add the following lines in the area provided for the virtual servers:
      Alias /smex// "<ShareDisk
      Label>:/SMEX_1300/data/report/"
      <Directory "<ShareDisk Label>:/SMEX/data/report">
      Options None
      AllowOverride None
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all
      </Directory>
    7. Save and close the file.
    8. Restart the Apache server from the Start menu.
  3. Create an account and mailbox for EUQ functions in Exchange 2000 and 2003:
    EUQ_<Virtual Server Name>
Exchange 2007 SCC Cluster
  1. Verify that the cluster resource type already exists or is registered by running the following in PowerShell Command:
    cluster restype
    You should see this resource type:
    ScanMail for Exchange Cluster Agent for Single Copy Cluster
  2. Add the data path for SMEX by running the command:
    cluster.exe res "<SMEX_Resource_Name>" /create
    /group:"<ClusteredMailboxServer_Group_Name>" /type:"clusRDLL"
    /priv SMEX_DATA_PATH="<share_disk_Data_path>"
  3. Once the resource group has been successfully created, select and right-click the new <SMEX_Resource_Name> then go to Properties > Policies.
  4. Disable the If restart is unsuccessful, fail over all resources in this service or application option.
  5. Add the Dependencies for SMEX using the PowerShell command or using GUI. Right-click <SMEX_Resource_Name> then go to Properties > Dependencies > Inserts):
    • cluster.exe res "<SMEX_Resource_Name>" /adddep:"<Network_Name>"
    • cluster.exe res "<SMEX_Resource_Name>" /adddep:"<Share_Disk>"
    • cluster.exe res "<SMEX_Resource_Name>" /adddep:"<Exchange_Information_Store_Instance>"
  6. Bring SMEX resource online using the PowerShell command below or using GUI. Right-click <SMEX_Resource_Name> then click Bring this resource online:
    cluster.exe group <ClusteredMailboxServer_Group_Name> /online
Exchange 2007 SCR Cluster
  1. Verify that the cluster resource type already exists or is registered by running the following in the command prompt:
    cluster restype
    You should see this resource type:
    ScanMail for Exchange Cluster Agent for Single Copy Cluster
  2. Create the SMEX resource using this command:
    cluster.exe res "SMEX-EVSNAME" /create /group:"EVSGROUP"
    type:"clusRDLL" /priv SMEX_DATA_PATH="C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Smex"
  3. Add the resource dependency.
    cluster.exe res "SMEX-EVSNAME"
    /adddep:"Exchange Information Store Instance (EVSNAME)"
    cluster.exe res "SMEX-EVSNAME" /adddep:"Network Name (EVSNAME)"
  4. Untick the Affect to group checkbox.
    cluster resource "SMEX-EVSNAME " /prop restartaction=1
Exchange 2007 CCR
  1. Verify that the cluster resource type already exists or is registered by running the following in the command prompt:
    cluster restype
    You should see this resource type:
    ScanMail for Exchange Cluster Agent for MNS Cluster
  2. Create the SMEX resource using this command:
    cluster.exe res "SMEX-EVSNAME" /create /group:"EVSNAME"
    /type:"clusRDLLCCR" /priv SMEX_DATA_PATH="C:\Program Files\Trend
    Micro\Smex\CCRVSDB\EVSNAME"
  3. Add the resource dependency.
    cluster.exe res "SMEX-EVSNAME"
    /adddep:"Exchange Information Store Instance (EVSNAME)"
    cluster.exe res "SMEX-EVSNAME" /adddep:"Network Name (EVSNAME)"
  4. Untick the Affect to group checkbox.
    cluster.exe res "SMEX-EVSNAME" /prop RestartAction=1
