To prepare your nodes for the Sun Cluster HA for Sybase ASE installation, select an installation location for the following files.
Sybase ASE application files. These files include Sybase ASE binaries and libraries. You can install these files on either the local file system or the cluster file system.
For information about the advantages and disadvantages of placing the Sybase ASE binaries on the local file system instead of the cluster file system, see Configuration Guidelines for Sun Cluster Data Services in Sun Cluster Data Services Planning and Administration Guide for Solaris OS.
Sybase ASE configuration files. These files include the interfaces file, config file, and environment file. You can install these files on the local file system (with links), the highly available local file system, or on the cluster file system.
Database data files. These files include Sybase device files. You must install these files on the highly available local file system or the cluster file system as either raw devices or regular files.
