This section contains the procedures you need to prepare the nodes and disks.
Use this procedure to prepare for the installation and configuration of SAP.
On each node or zone that can master the logical host that runs HA for SAP, include one of the following entries for group in the /etc/nsswitch.conf file.
group: group: files [NOTFOUND=return] nis group: file [NOTFOUND=return] nisplus
HA for SAP uses the su user command to start and probe SAP. The network information name service might become unavailable when a cluster node's public network fails. Adding one of the entries for group in the /etc/nsswitch.conf file ensure that the su(1M) command does not refer to the NIS or NIS+ name services if the network information name service is unavailable.
