B Oracle Solaris Cluster

Use Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center to install a new Oracle Solaris Cluster and to maintain existing Oracle Solaris Clusters.

For information about Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.2, see the product documentation at http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19787-01/index.html

B.1 Upgrading an Oracle Solaris Cluster

The cluster update procedures operate on complete clusters. Do not attempt to upgrade only a cluster node.

To upgrade a cluster to a newer version of the Oracle Solaris Cluster software, use a profile that defines the new version. Either select the target cluster and then the deployment plan or select the deployment plan and then the target. In either case, you use the Solaris Cluster Upgrade Job Wizard to specify how the deployment operates.

Before You Begin

Import the cluster profile.

To Upgrade the Cluster

  1. Expand Plan Management in the Navigation pane.

  2. In the Profiles and Policies section, click Update Profiles.

  3. Select Oracle Solaris Upgrade Job in the Actions pane. The Oracle Solaris Upgrade Job Wizard starts.

  4. Enter a name for the upgrade job.

  5. Click display the cluster targets.

  6. Choose one or more clusters and click Select/Add to Target List.

  7. Select Dual Partition Mode.

  8. Select the policy to use if a task in the upgrade cannot be completed.

  9. Select the profile that you imported.

  10. Review the summary of the job and click Finish. The upgrade job is submitted. To follow the progress of the job, click the View Job Details icon in the jobs pane.

B.2 Cluster Profiles

You use cluster profiles in a deployment plan to perform the following operations:

  • Install Oracle Solaris Cluster software

  • Upgrade Oracle Solaris Cluster software

The profiles and deployment plans rely on pre-action and post-action scripts to suspend cluster operations and save configuration information during the update process.

The following cluster-specific profiles and scripts are located in Enterprise Manager Ops Center's Local Content software library. As the Oracle Solaris Cluster software is revised, new profiles are made available to you through the Java.net site's Ops Center Cluster Profiles project. You download these new profiles and scripts, then import them into the Local Content library. See Obtaining the Cluster Profiles and Scripts for instructions to get these files.
