Use this procedure to add a new storage system to a running cluster. To install a new storage system in a Sun Cluster configuration that is not running, use the procedure in How to Install Storage Systems in a New Cluster
This procedure relies on the following assumptions:
You have enough host adapters to connect the nodes and the storage system to the service processor panel.
If you need to install host adapters, see How to Replace a Host Adapter. When this procedure asks you to replace the failed host adapter, simply install the new host adapter instead.
You do not need to install a new node in your cluster.
If you need to add a node to your cluster, see your Sun Cluster system administration documentation. Ensure that you install the required Solaris patches for storage system support.
Unpack, place, and level the storage system.
For instructions, see your storage system installation documentation. For a list of this documentation, see Related Documentation.
(Optional) Install the Fibre Channel (FC) switch for the storage system if you do not have a switch installed.
For the procedure about how to install an FC switch, see the documentation that shipped with your FC switch hardware.
Connect the nodes to the service processor panel.
(SAN Configuration) Connect the FC switches to the service processor panel.
(Direct-Attached Configuration) Connect each node to the service processor panel directly.
For the procedure about how to cable the storage system, see your storage system installation documentation.
Install the system power cord and the system antistatic strap.
For instructions, see your storage system installation documentation.
Power on the storage system and the nodes.
For instructions about how to power on the storage system, see your storage system installation documentation.
Configure the service processor.
For more information, see your storage system installation documentation.
To create a logical volume, see How to Create a Logical Volume.
If you added a new node, perform the steps in Install the Solaris Operating System and Configure Multipathing as appropriate. Apply the correct patches for storage system support and enable multipathing.
