Manual InfoPrint Manager file system allocation
The InfoPrint Manager for AIX installation software is optimized for a pSeries server with five SSA disks. When the installer senses the presence of the required drives, it creates the InfoPrint Manager file systems to take the best advantage of them.
However, the majority of InfoPrint Manager for AIX installations are done on servers with fewer drives, and
non-SSA disks. In these cases, the installation software attempts
to load the complete application on a single disk in
rootvg. Because of InfoPrint Manager's workflow
and file duplication characteristics, this can lead to an inefficient
print server. To over-ride the installer's default behavior, you
should pre-allocate file systems for InfoPrint Manager before
starting the install process.
The File system creation procedure uses a sample server with four SCSI 73.4GB disk drives. The
creation steps and sizes for file systems are based on the assumption
that the server is being used only as an InfoPrint Manager print
server. The configuration values shown are samples only and will vary
based on server type, number and size of disks, and so forth. No considerations
have been made for any other applications running in this environment.
