Sun Cluster Overview for Solaris OS

Cluster Interconnect

The cluster interconnect is the physical configuration of devices that are used to transfer cluster-private communications and data service communications between Solaris hosts in the cluster.

Redundant interconnects enable operations to continue over the surviving interconnects while system administrators isolate failures and repair communication. The Sun Cluster software detects, repairs, and automatically re-initiates communication over a repaired interconnect.
