The Sun Cluster HA for Sun Java System Application Server is a data service with appropriate extension properties to configure a failover application server mastered by one node at a time. A domain's administrative server can also be made highly available as a failover resource. Web clients can connect directly to the Sun Java System Application Server.
Use of the Sun Java System Application Server command-line or GUI administration tool is restricted in a clustered environment. Before you configure application instances and the administrative server into resource groups, see Configuration Restrictions for information about using asadmin or the Sun Java System Application Server Administrative Interface in your cluster. See Configuration Guidelines for Sun Cluster Data Services in Sun Cluster Data Services Planning and Administration Guide for Solaris OS for more information about configuring resources and resource groups.
