The recommended configuration for Active/Active configurations without LVM and with a large number of queue managers is the use of symbolic links. In this case, one or more dedicated mount points are created (e.g./mg). A LifeKeeper protected file system is mounted there and subdirectories for each queue manager are created (e.g./mq/QUEUE!MANAGER!NAME/log and /mq/QUEUE!MANAGER!NAME/qmgrs). The QMDIR and QMLOGDIR directories are then linked to this location.
