For the transport adapters, such as ports on network interfaces, specify the transport adapter names and transport type. If your configuration is a two-node cluster, you also specify whether your interconnect is direct connected (adapter to adapter) or uses a transport junction.
Consider the following guidelines and restrictions:
Local MAC address assignment - All private network adapters must use network interface cards (NICs) that support local MAC address assignment. Link-local IPv6 addresses, which are required on private network adapters to support IPv6 public network addresses, are derived from the local MAC addresses.
Tagged VLAN adapters – Sun Cluster software supports tagged Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs) to share an adapter between the private interconnect and the public network. To configure a tagged VLAN adapter for the private interconnect, specify the adapter name and its VLAN ID (VID) in one of the following ways:
Specify the usual adapter name, which is the device name plus the instance number or physical point of attachment (PPA). For example, the name of instance 2 of a Cassini Gigabit Ethernet adapter would be ce2. If the scinstall utility asks whether the adapter is part of a shared virtual LAN, answer yes and specify the adapter's VID number.
Specify the adapter by its VLAN virtual device name. This name is composed of the adapter name plus the VLAN instance number. The VLAN instance number is derived from the formula (1000*V)+N, where V is the VID number and N is the PPA.
As an example, for VID 73 on adapter ce2, the VLAN instance number would be calculated as (1000*73)+2. You would therefore specify the adapter name as ce73002 to indicate that it is part of a shared virtual LAN.
