The following table describes the volume managers that are supported in this release for each data replication software product.
1For information about additional supported storage management options, see Storage Management Requirements in Oracle Solaris Cluster Data Service for Oracle Real Application Clusters Guide.
At the time of publication, data services for the following applications are supported with Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.1:
Oracle eBusiness Suite
Oracle External Proxy
Oracle GlassFish Server Message Queue
Oracle Database single-instance on version 11g release 2 only
Oracle iPlanet Web Server
Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise

Oracle Web Tier
Oracle WebLogic Server
The following table describes the file systems that work with the Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.1 software on SPARC and x86 platforms.
The Oracle Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition (Geographic Edition) 4.1 software runs only on either Oracle Solaris Cluster software version 4.1 or 4.0.
A cluster running Geographic Edition 4.1 software can be in a partnership only with another cluster that runs either Geographic Edition software version 4.1 or 4.0.
The Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.1 software requires the following memory requirements for every cluster node:
Minimum of 1.5 Gbytes of physical RAM (2 Gbytes typical)
Minimum of 6 Gbytes of available hard drive space
Actual physical memory and hard drive requirements are determined by the applications that are installed. Consult the application's documentation or contact the application vendor to calculate additional memory and hard drive requirements.
The Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.1 and Quorum Server software require the Oracle Solaris 11.1 OS. The Oracle Solaris 11.0 release is not supported for Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.1 software.
In addition, to upgrade directly to Oracle Solaris 11.1 software, before upgrade the system must run a minimum of Oracle Solaris 11 with SRU 10. Oracle Solaris software does not support direct upgrade to Oracle Solaris 11.1 from less than Oracle Solaris 11 with SRU 10.
This Oracle Solaris Cluster release works with Oracle VM Server for SPARC 2.1, 2.2, and 3.0. This software was formerly called Sun Logical Domains (LDoms).
The following describe the supported and restricted uses of the SR-IOV feature of Oracle Solaris 11.1 for use with Oracle VM Server for SPARC 2.2:
An SR-IOV device is not supported for live migration of the HA for Oracle VM Server for SPARC data service. This restriction exists as of initial release of the Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.1 software. Contact your Oracle support representative to learn whether support for the SR-IOV feature becomes available.
An SR-IOV device is supported for normal migration of the HA for Oracle VM Service for SPARC data service. This support requires that the SR-IOV device path is identical on all potential primaries of the data service's resource group.
An SR-IOV device is supported with an Oracle VM Server for SPARC logical domain that is configured to run as a cluster node.
The following table describes the volume managers that work with Oracle Solaris 11.1 on the SPARC and x86 platforms. Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM) is not supported for the Oracle Solaris Cluster and Oracle Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition 4.1 software.
