|Oracle Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition Installation Guide Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.0|
You must install Geographic Edition software on every node of each cluster in your geographically separated cluster by using the pkg add command.
This procedure explains how to install Geographic Edition software. Perform the procedure in the global zone for each node of a global cluster or zone cluster that you are configuring in a partnership.
Before You Begin
Before you begin to install software, make the following preparations:
Ensure that the Oracle Solaris OS is installed to support Geographic Edition software.
If Oracle Solaris software is already installed on the node, you must ensure that the Oracle Solaris installation meets the requirements for Geographic Edition software and any other software that you intend to install on the cluster.
Read the following manuals, which contain information that can help you plan your configuration and prepare your installation strategy:
Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.0 Release Notes – Restrictions, bug workarounds, and other late-breaking information.
Documentation for all third-party software products.
Note - Geographic Edition software must be installed in the global zone for all nodes of each cluster in the partnership, whether the cluster is a global cluster or a zone cluster.
The certification page is displayed with download buttons for the key and the certificate.
In the following example the repository name is https://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/cluster/.
# pkg set-publisher \ -k /var/pkg/ssl/Oracle_Solaris_Cluster_4.0.key.pem \ -c /var/pkg/ssl/Oracle_Solaris_Cluster_4.0.certificate.pem \ -O https://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/cluster/ ha-cluster
Specifies the full path to the downloaded SSL key file.
Specifies the full path to the downloaded certificate file.
Specifies the URL to the Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.0 package repository.
For more information, see the pkg(1) man page.
Note - A valid Oracle license is required to access Oracle Software Delivery Cloud.
Oracle Solaris Cluster software, which includes Geographic Edition software, is part of the Oracle Solaris Product Pack. Follow online instructions to complete selection of the media pack and download the software.
# lofiadm -a path-to-iso-image /dev/lofi/N # mount -F hsfs /dev/lofi/N /mnt
Specifies the full path and file name of the ISO image.
# pkg set-publisher -g file:///mnt/repo ha-cluster
# pkg publisher PUBLISHER TYPE STATUS URI solaris origin online solaris-repository ha-cluster origin online ha-cluster-repository
# /usr/bin/pkg install ha-cluster-geo-full
Output is similar to the following example, which checks the installation state of the ha-cluster-geo-full group package.
