To use the VxVM software with Sun Cluster Support for Oracle Real Application Clusters, perform the following tasks.
If you are using VxVM with the cluster feature, obtain a license for the Volume Manager cluster feature in addition to the basic VxVM license.
See your VxVM documentation for more information about VxVM licensing requirements.
Failure to correctly install the license for the Volume Manager cluster feature might cause a panic when you install Oracle Real Application Clusters support. Before you install the Oracle Real Application Clusters packages, run the vxlicense -p or vxlicrep command to ensure that you have installed a valid license for the Volume Manager cluster feature.
Install and configure the VxVM software on the cluster nodes.
See Chapter 4, Installing and Configuring VERITAS Volume Manager, in Sun Cluster Software Installation Guide for Solaris OS and the VxVM documentation for more information.
Ensure that all other storage management schemes that you are using for Oracle files are installed.
After all storage management schemes that you are using for Oracle files are installed, go to Preparing the Sun Cluster Nodes.
