Sun Cluster Data Service for WebSphere MQ Guide for Solaris OS

ProcedureExample: Prepare the Cluster for WebSphere MQ

Perform all steps within this example in the global zone.

  1. Install and configure the cluster as instructed in Sun Cluster Software Installation Guide for Solaris OS.

    Install the following cluster software components on node Vigor5.

    • Sun Cluster core software

    • Sun Cluster data service for WebSphere MQ

  2. Add the logical host name to /etc/hosts and /etc/inet/ipnodes in the global zone.

    The following output shows logical host name entries for qmgr1.

    Vigor5# grep qmgr1 /etc/hosts /etc/inet/ipnodes
    /etc/hosts:	qmgr1
    /etc/inet/ipnodes:	qmgr1
  3. Install and configure a Zettabyte file system.

    Create two ZFS pools.

    Note –

    The following zpool definitions represent a very basic configuration for deployment on a single-node cluster.

    You should not consider this example for use within a productive deployment, instead it is a very basic configuration for testing or development purposes only.

    Vigor5# zpool create -m /ZFSwmq1/log HAZpool1 c1t1d0
    Vigor5# zpool create -m /ZFSwmq1/qmgrs HAZpool2 c1t4d0
