Cluster Interconnect

Note –

You do not need to configure a cluster interconnect for a single-node cluster. However, if you anticipate eventually adding nodes to a single-node cluster configuration, you might want to configure the cluster interconnect for future use.

The cluster interconnects provide the hardware pathways for private-network communication between cluster nodes. Each interconnect consists of a cable that is connected in one of the following ways:

During Sun Cluster configuration, you specify the following information for two cluster interconnects:

You can configure additional private-network connections after the cluster is established by using the scsetup(1M) utility.

For more information about the cluster interconnect, see “Cluster Interconnect” in Sun Cluster Overview for Solaris OS and Sun Cluster Concepts Guide for Solaris OS.
