Universal Messaging 10.3 | Administration Guide | Using Command Central to Manage Universal Messaging | Universal Messaging Configuration Types | Zones
Zones are a logical grouping of one or more Universal Messaging server instances (realms) that maintain active connections to each other. Each Universal Messaging server instance can be a member of zero or one zone, but a server instance cannot be a member of more than one zone. For more information about zones, see the Zones section in the Universal Messaging Concepts guide.
You can create, edit, or delete a zone using the Command Central web user interface. You can create Zone with Realms consisting one or more reams, or create Zone with Clusters consisting one or more Universal Messaging clusters. You can export the zone configuration using the Export option.
If the server instances that you want to add to the zone have only nsps or nhps interfaces, ensure that the keystore and truststore of each server instance contain the certificates required for communicating with the rest of the server instances. To do so for a server instance:
1. Create a keystore and a truststore.
2. Import the certificate of the server instance into the key store.
3. Import the certificates of all servers that you want to add to the zone into the truststore.
4. Add the paths to the keystore and truststore, as well as the keystore and truststore passwords, to the corresponding JSSE system properties in the Server_Common.conf file of the server instance. The file is located in the Software AG_directory \UniversalMessaging\server\instanceName\bin directory.
The table describes the zone parameters required to create a zone:
Zone name
Required. Name of the zone, it is used to uniquely identify this zone.
Servers (for Zone with Realms)
Clustered servers (for Zone with Clusters)
Required. Provide server URL and name if you are creating a Zone with Realms or provide all or one of the cluster nodes if you are creating a Zone with Clusters.
*Server URL: Universal Messaging server URL.
*Server name: Name of the Universal Messaging server.
*Cluster configuration: Automatically populated with the cluster name.
You can provide any one cluster node and all the running nodes of the cluster will be added to the zone.
