Sun Cluster Software Installation Guide for Solaris OS

ProcedureSPARC: 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 8/05 Release Notes for Solaris OS 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

    These changes become effective at the next system reboot.

    • 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.
