Sun Cluster Data Services Planning and Administration Guide for Solaris OS

How to Register a Resource Type

To complete this procedure, you must supply the name for the resource type that you plan to register. The resource type name is an abbreviation for the data service name. For information about resource type names of data services that are supplied with Sun Cluster, see the release notes for your release of Sun Cluster.

See the scrgadm(1M) man page for additional information.

Note –

Perform this procedure from any cluster node.

  1. Become superuser on a cluster member.

  2. Register the resource type.

    # scrgadm -a -t resource-type

    Adds the specified resource type.

    -t resource-type

    Specifies name of the resource type to add. See the release notes for your release of Sun Cluster to determine the predefined name to supply.

  3. Verify that the resource type has been registered.

    # scrgadm -pv -t resource-type

Example – Registering Resource Types

The following example registers Sun Cluster HA for Sun Java System Web Server (internal name iws).

# scrgadm -a -t SUNW.iws
# scrgadm -pv -t SUNW.iws
Res Type name:                                   SUNW.iws
  (SUNW.iws) Res Type description:               None registered
  (SUNW.iws) Res Type base directory:            /opt/SUNWschtt/bin
  (SUNW.iws) Res Type single instance:           False
  (SUNW.iws) Res Type init nodes:                All potential masters
  (SUNW.iws) Res Type failover:                  False
  (SUNW.iws) Res Type version:                   1.0

Where to Go From Here

After registering resource types, you can create resource groups and add resources to the resource group. See Creating a Resource Group for details.
