Using IM across servers with Convergence

807574 Newbie

Standard comms u2 install, 2 linux servers.

I've added shoal as per http://wikis.sun.com/display/CommSuite/Using+Shoal+for+Automatic+Discovery+of+Peer+Servers+in+a+Pool

However I still can't get a conversation going (using Convergence) under these circumstances:

User1 has im home server server1 and is logged onto server 1
User2 has im home server server2 and is logged onto server 2

(at least I can't get past the invite buddy stage. If user1 invites user2, user1 does not receive the invitation)

However if they both log into the same server they can invite and chat.

Both servers are on the same subnet. I do have the IM multiplexor running on both servers which might confuse the issue.

What log files are relevant to try and debug this?

    Shoal support with IM is only in IM 8U2 release which will be shipped along with Comms7 which is not yet out.
    So you will not have access to this feature.

    To enable communication between multiple IM servers you have to refer the below doc,

    oh... doh!.

    I just saw the u2 part and thought it was current. I will do it the old fashioned way so long. I will resist the temptation of asking when Comms 7 is due.
