Setting up a separate voice server node

You might want to store your voice data (for example, voice segments, user greetings, and voice messages) on a server that is reserved for that purpose. This might be desired if you have a large single system image that is running a voice messaging service and you want to reserve a separate server to store your voice data. You do not need to install Blueworx Voice Response on this server.

Note: If you want to store your voice data on the database server, you can skip this section; you do need not perform any additional tasks to set up your server.

Voice data is stored in data files in an AIX file system. In a single system image, this file system is mounted onto the client nodes using NFS. To set up a separate voice server node, you must create the file system to store the voice data, and export that file system so that the client nodes can access it. You must also set up the database server, as described in Configuring a server node.

Note: If you already use NFS on your installation, you might want to modify the instructions given here so that you maintain the integrity of your system. For more information, see the System Management Guide; Communications and Networks book.
