Sun Cluster Software Installation Guide for Solaris OS

ProcedureHow to Install Sun Cluster Framework and Data-Service Software Packages (Java ES installer)

Follow this procedure to use the Sun JavaTM Enterprise System (Java ES) installer program to perform one or more of the following installation tasks:

Note –

Do not use this procedure to install the following kinds of data service packages:

Before You Begin

Perform the following tasks:

  1. (Optional) To use the installer program with a GUI, ensure that the display environment of the cluster node to install is set to display the GUI.

    % xhost +
    % setenv DISPLAY nodename:0.0
  2. Become superuser on the cluster node to install.

  3. Insert the Sun Cluster 1 of 2 CD-ROM in the CD-ROM drive.

  4. Change to the directory of the CD-ROM where the installer program resides.

    # cd /cdrom/cdrom0/Solaris_arch/

    In the Solaris_arch/ directory, arch is sparc or x86.

  5. Start the Java ES installer program.

    # ./installer
  6. Follow instructions on the screen to install Sun Cluster framework software and data services on the node.

    When prompted whether to configure Sun Cluster framework software, choose Configure Later.

    After installation is finished, you can view any available installation log. See the Sun Java Enterprise System 2005Q5 Installation Guide for additional information about using the Java ES installer program.

  7. Install additional packages if you intend to use any of the following features.

    • Remote Shared Memory Application Programming Interface (RSMAPI)

    • SCI-PCI adapters for the interconnect transport

    • RSMRDT drivers

    Note –

    Use of the RSMRDT driver is restricted to clusters that run an Oracle9i release 2 SCI configuration with RSM enabled. Refer to Oracle9i release 2 user documentation for detailed installation and configuration instructions.

    1. Determine which packages you must install.

      The following table lists the Sun Cluster 3.1 8/05 packages that each feature requires, in the order in which you must install each group of packages. The Java ES installer program does not automatically install these packages.

      Note –

      Install packages in the order in which they are listed in the following table.


      Additional Sun Cluster 3.1 8/05 Packages to Install 



      SCI-PCI adapters 

      • Solaris 8 and 9: SUNWsci SUNWscid SUNWscidx

      • Solaris 10: SUNWscir SUNWsci SUNWscidr SUNWscid

      RSMRDT drivers 


    2. Insert the Sun Cluster 2 of 2 CD-ROM, if it is not already inserted in the CD-ROM drive.

    3. Change to the Solaris_arch/Product/sun_cluster/Solaris_ver/Packages/ directory, where arch is sparc or x86, and where ver is 8 for Solaris 8, 9 for Solaris 9, or 10 for Solaris 10 .

      # cd /cdrom/cdrom0/Solaris_arch/Product/sun_cluster/Solaris_ver/Packages/
    4. Install the additional packages.

      # pkgadd -d . packages
  8. Change to a directory that does not reside on the CD-ROM and eject the CD-ROM.

    # eject cdrom
  9. Ensure that the /usr/java/ directory is a symbolic link to the minimum or latest version of Java software.

    Sun Cluster software requires at least version 1.4.2_03 of Java software.

    1. Determine what directory the /usr/java/ directory is symbolically linked to.

      # ls -l /usr/java
      lrwxrwxrwx   1 root   other    9 Apr 19 14:05 /usr/java -> /usr/j2se/
    2. Determine what version or versions of Java software are installed.

      The following are examples of commands that you can use to display the version of their related releases of Java software.

      # /usr/j2se/bin/java -version
      # /usr/java1.2/bin/java -version
      # /usr/jdk/jdk1.5.0_01/bin/java -version
    3. If the /usr/java/ directory is not symbolically linked to a supported version of Java software, recreate the symbolic link to link to a supported version of Java software.

      The following example shows the creation of a symbolic link to the /usr/j2se/ directory, which contains Java 1.4.2_03 software.

      # rm /usr/java
      # ln -s /usr/j2se /usr/java
