Hardware Installation and Service View

To hardware service professionals, the Oracle Solaris Cluster software looks like a collection of off-the-shelf hardware that includes servers, network devices/equipment, and storage. These components are all cabled together so that every component has a backup and no single point of failure exists.

Hardware service professionals need to understand the following cluster concepts.

  • Cluster hardware configurations and cabling

  • Installing and servicing (adding, removing, replacing):

    • Network interface components (adapters, junctions, cables)

    • Disk arrays

    • Disk drives

    • The administrative console and the console access device
