Secondary domain creation issue

I have been attempting to create a secondary domain on my gw 2012 sp 2 system and haven't been able to do it. I want to create the 2ndary domain on another server. The primary domain (the only one right now) is on a oes 11 sp 1 server (gw db stored on a linux partition not an nss volume). The server I want to create the 2ndary domain is on an oes 2 sp 2.

When I connect to the primary domain in C1 and then select the container for the 2ndard domain, enter a local directory and then enter ip address of server where 2ndary will be, and then finish, C1 just keeps processing, but never finishes.

So, I try and do it locally on the primary server, using the primary server ip address and the process never finishes.

Do I have to connect the two servers (mount a drive from the 2ndary server to the primary)???? This seems like it should be simple, but I am missing something. I have been using the TID 7002749 but never get past the first part.

Hoping someone can point out the error i am making or what I am not understanding.

Also, does the MTA have to be installed on the 2ndary server prior to creating the primary domain?

    The IP address is for the MTA that will be servicing that Domain, should
    be the address that you will be moving the Domain to in the next step
    with scp. The folder you are aiming for should be the same as it will
    be on the destination server if at all possible. And this assumes your
    C1 is run on this platform, and stating where you are running C1 on a
    given attempt description is important as it significantly affects
    pathing.

    That is an option, though the pathing comes out a bit odd such that is
    best managed with a symbolic link at either end to keep things matched
    up.

    As that TID does have a major fork, where on which one(s) are you
    running in to issues? I.e. Is it step 8 under "Create the Domain
    Database" that things halt?

    Not a requirement for the creation, just for making it go live.


    OES2 sp2?? rather old and I believe out of support and therefor not a
    supported platform until you get it up to sp3. But it doesn't sound
    like you are far enough for this to be the road block.
