Familiarize yourself with the planning information in the Sun Cluster Geographic Edition Installation Guide and the Sun Cluster Geographic Edition Overview before beginning administration tasks. This guide contains the standard tasks that are used to administer and maintain the Sun Cluster Geographic Edition configurations.
For general Sun Cluster, data service, and hardware administration tasks, refer to the Sun Cluster documentation.
You can perform all administration tasks on a cluster that is running the Sun Cluster Geographic Edition software without causing any nodes or the cluster to fail. You can install, configure, start, use, stop, and uninstall the Sun Cluster Geographic Edition software on an operational cluster.
You might be required to take nodes or the cluster offline for preparatory actions, such as installing data replication software and performing Sun Cluster administrative tasks. Refer to the appropriate product documentation for administration restrictions.
