Sun Cluster Software Installation Guide for Solaris OS

SPARC: How to Install VERITAS File System Software

Perform this procedure on each node of the cluster.

  1. Follow the procedures in your VxFS installation documentation to install VxFS software on each node of the cluster.

  2. Install any Sun Cluster patches that are required to support VxFS.

    See “Patches and Required Firmware Levels” in Sun Cluster 3.1 Release Notes for the location of patches and installation instructions.

  3. In the /etc/system file on each node, set the following values.

    set rpcmod:svc_default_stksize=0x8000
    set lwp_default_stksize=0x6000

    • Sun Cluster software requires a minimum rpcmod:svc_default_stksize setting of 0x8000. Because VxFS installation sets the value of the rpcmod:svc_default_stksize variable to 0x4000, you must manually set the value to 0x8000 after VxFS installation is complete.

    • You must set the lwp_default_stksize variable in the /etc/system file to override the VxFS default value of 0x4000.

  4. Set up the name-service look-up order.

    Go to How to Configure the Name-Service Switch.
