Sun Cluster Quick Start Guide for Solaris OS

ProcedureHow to Create and Activate an File

  1. On both nodes, create an /etc/lvm/ file with the following entries.

    These entries define the volumes for each disk set. The one-way mirrors provide flexibility to add a mirror later without unmounting the file system. You can create the file on one node and copy it to the other node, or you can create it on both nodes at the same time by using the cconsole(1M) utility.

    apacheset/d0 -m apacheset/d10 
        apacheset/d10 1 1 /dev/did/rdsk/d3s0
    nfsset/d1 -m nfsset/d11
        nfsset/d11 1 1 /dev/did/rdsk/d4s0
    oraset/d2 -m oraset/d12
        oraset/d12 1 1 /dev/did/rdsk/d5s0
    oraset/d0 -p oraset/d2 3G
    oraset/d1 -p oraset/d2 3G
  2. From phys-sun, take ownership of each of the disk sets and activate their volumes.

    phys-sun# cldevicegroup switch -n phys-sun apacheset
    phys-sun# metainit -s apacheset -a
    phys-sun# cldevicegroup switch -n phys-sun nfsset
    phys-sun# metainit -s nfsset -a
    phys-moon# cldevicegroup switch -n phys-sun oraset
    phys-moon# metainit -s oraset -a
  3. Check the status of the volumes for each disk set.

    phys-sun# metastat
    Status: Okay
