The HAStoragePlus resource type is designed to make non-global file system configurations such as UFS and VxFS highly available. Use HAStoragePlus to integrate your local file system into the Sun Cluster environment and make the file system highly available. HAStoragePlus provides additional file system capabilities such as checks, mounts, and forced unmounts that enable Sun Cluster to fail over local file systems. In order to fail over, the local file system must reside on global disk groups with affinity switchovers enabled.
See the individual data service chapters in the Data Services Installation and Configuration Guide or “Enabling Highly Available Local File Systems” in Chapter 14 “Administering Data Services Resources” for information on how to use the HAStoragePlus resource type.
HAStoragePlus can also used to synchronize the startup of resources and disk device groups upon which the resources depend. For more information, see Resources, Resource Groups, and Resource Types.
