|Oracle Solaris Cluster System Administration Guide Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 3/13|
No special Oracle Solaris Cluster commands are necessary for cluster file system administration. Administer a cluster file system as you would any other Oracle Solaris file system, using standard Oracle Solaris file system commands, such as mount and newfs. Mount cluster file systems by specifying the -g option to the mount command. Cluster file systems can also be automatically mounted at boot. Cluster file systems are only visible from the voting node in a global cluster. If you require the cluster file system data to be accessible from a non-voting node, map the data to the non-voting node with zoneadm(1M) or HAStoragePlus.
Note - When the cluster file system reads files, the file system does not update the access time on those files.
The following restrictions apply to the cluster file system administration:
The unlink(1M) command is not supported on directories that are not empty.
The lockfs -d command is not supported. Use lockfs -n as a workaround.
You cannot remount a cluster file system with the directio mount option added at remount time.
ZFS for root file systems is supported, with one significant exception. If you use a dedicated partition of the boot disk for the global-devices file system, you must use only UFS as its file system. The global-devices namespace requires the proxy file system (PxFS) running on a UFS file system. However, a UFS file system for the global-devices namespace can coexist with a ZFS file system for the root (/) file system and other root file systems, for example, /var or /home. Alternatively, if you instead use a lofi device to host the global-devices namespace, there is no limitation on the use of ZFS for root file systems.
