SunPlex Manager is a web-based tool that enables you to perform the following tasks.
Installing a cluster
Administering a cluster
Creating and configuring resources and resource groups
Configuring data services with the Sun Cluster software
Sun Cluster Manager provides wizards to automate the configuration of Sun Cluster data services for the following applications.
Apache Web Server
Oracle Real Application Clusters
SAP Web Application Server
Each wizard enables you to configure Sun Cluster resources that the data service requires. The wizard does not automate the installation and configuration of the application software to run in a Sun Cluster configuration. To install and configure application software to run in a Sun Cluster configuration, use utilities of the application and Sun Cluster maintenance commands. For more information, see your application documentation and the Sun Cluster documentation set. Each wizard supports only a limited subset of configuration options for a data service. To configure options that a wizard does not support, use Sun Cluster Manager or Sun Cluster maintenance commands to configure the data service manually. For more information, see the Sun Cluster documentation.
Sun Cluster Manager provides wizards to automate the configuration of the following Sun Cluster resources.

Highly available storage resource
You can use a resource that you create by using a wizard with any data service regardless of how you configure the data service.
