You must install Sun Cluster Geographic Edition software on every node of each cluster in your geographically separated cluster by using the installer program.
This procedure explains how to install Sun Cluster Geographic Edition software.
Before you begin to install software, make the following preparations:
Ensure that the Solaris OS is installed to support Sun Cluster Geographic Edition software.
If Solaris software is already installed on the node, you must ensure that the Solaris installation meets the requirements for Sun Cluster Geographic Edition software and any other software that you intend to install on the cluster.
Read the following manuals, which contain information that can help you plan your configuration and prepare your installation strategy:
Sun Cluster Geographic Edition 3.2 2/08 Release Notes – Restrictions, bug workarounds, and other late-breaking information.
Documentation for all third-party software products.
To use the installer program with a GUI, ensure that the display environment of the cluster node to install is set to display the GUI.
% xhost + % setenv DISPLAY nodename:0.0
If the display environment is not set to display the GUI, the installer program instead displays in test-based mode.
Become superuser on a node where you intend to install the Sun Cluster Geographic Edition software.
Sun Cluster Geographic Edition software must be installed on all nodes of each cluster in the partnership.
Load the Sun Java Availability Suite installation DVD-ROM into the DVD-ROM drive.
If the volume management daemon vold(1M) is running and is configured to manage CD-ROM or DVD devices, the daemon automatically mounts the media on the /cdrom/cdrom0/ directory.
Change to the installation wizard directory of the DVD-ROM.
Start the installer program.
The installer starts and displays the Welcome page. To exit the installer at any time, click Cancel. For more information about the installer program, see Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Update 1 Installation Guide for UNIX.

The installer begins to install the software packages. After the installation is finished, you can view any available installation log.
Unload the Sun Java Availability Suite installation DVD-ROM from the DVD-ROM drive.
Repeat this procedure on each node of each partner cluster.
Install required patches. Go to Installing Patches.
