The server root directory (the path to the application binaries). You can install the binaries on the local disks or on the cluster file system. For a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of each location, see “Configuration Guidelines for Sun Cluster Data Services” in Sun Cluster Data Services Planning and Administration Guide for Solaris OS.
The logical hostname (for failover services) or shared address (for scalable services) that clients use to access the data service. You must configure these addresses, and they must be online.
If you run Sun Cluster HA for Sun Java System Web Server and another HTTP server and they use the same network resources, configure them to listen on different ports. Otherwise, a port conflict might occur between the two servers.
Become superuser on a cluster member.
Start the installation.
If you are installing the Sun Java System Web Server on Solaris 8, execute the setup command for Sun Java System Web Server from the install directory on the CD.
If you are installing the Sun Java System Web Server packaged with Solaris 9, follow the instructions on the installation CD.
If you are installing the Sun Java System Web Server packaged with Solaris 9, do not enable the auto start of the web server at system restart.
When prompted, enter the location where the Sun Java System Web Server binaries will be installed.
You can specify a location on the cluster file system or on local disks for the location of the install. If you choose to install on local disks, install the web server on all of the cluster nodes that are potential primaries of the network resource (logical hostname or shared address) that the next step specifies.
When prompted for a machine name, enter the logical hostname on which the Sun Java System Web Server depends and the appropriate DNS domain name.
A full logical hostname is of the format network-resource.domainname, such as schost-1.sun.com.
For Sun Cluster HA for Sun Java System Web Server to fail over correctly, you must use either the logical hostname or shared address resource name (rather than the physical hostname) here and everywhere else that you are asked.
Select Run Admin Server as Root when you are asked.
Note the port number that the Sun Java System install script selects for the administration server. You might want to use this default value later when you use the admin server to configure an instance of the Sun Java System Web Server. Otherwise, you can specify a different port number when you configure the Sun Java System server instance.
Type a Server Administrator ID and a chosen password when you are asked.
Follow the guidelines for your system.
When a message displays that the admin server will be started, your installation is ready for configuration.
