You must install Geographic Edition software on every node of each cluster in your geographically separated cluster by using the installer program or the pkgadd command.
This procedure explains how to install Geographic Edition software. Perform the procedure in the global zone for each node of a global cluster or zone cluster that you are configuring in a partnership.
Before You Begin
Before you begin to install software, make the following preparations:
Ensure that the Oracle Solaris OS is installed to support Geographic Edition software.
If Oracle Solaris software is already installed on the node, you must ensure that the Oracle Solaris installation meets the requirements for Geographic Edition software and any other software that you intend to install on the cluster.
Read the following manuals, which contain information that can help you plan your configuration and prepare your installation strategy:
Oracle Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition 3.3 5/11 Release Notes – Restrictions, bug workarounds, and other late-breaking information.
Documentation for all third-party software products.
Note - Geographic Edition software must be installed in the global zone for all nodes of each cluster in the partnership, whether the cluster is a global cluster or a zone cluster.
If the volume management daemon vold(1M) is running and is configured to manage CD-ROM or DVD devices, the daemon automatically mounts the media on the /cdrom/cdrom0/ directory.
% xhost + % setenv DISPLAY nodename:0.0
If the display environment is not set to display the GUI, the installer program instead displays in text-based mode.
# cd /cdrom/cdrom0/Solaris_sparc
# cd /cdrom/cdrom0/Solaris_x86
The installer starts and displays the Welcome page. To exit the installer at any time, click Cancel. For more information about the installer program, see Sun Java Enterprise System 5 Update 1 Installation Guide for UNIX.
After you accept the license terms, the Choose Software Components menu is displayed.
The Confirm Choices screen is displayed.
The Oracle Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition 3.3 5/11 submenu is displayed.
Note - If you choose to install multilingual packages, ensure that all nodes of the cluster have the same default locale.
Install required patches. Go to Installing Patches.
Configure Geographic Edition software on the clusters. Go to Chapter 3, Enabling and Configuring the Geographic Edition Software.
