How to Prepare for Cluster Software Installation

  1. Ensure that the combination of hardware and software that you choose for your cluster is currently a supported Oracle Solaris Cluster configuration.
  2. Read the following manuals for information that can help you plan your cluster configuration and prepare your installation strategy.
  3. Have available all related documentation, including third-party documents.

    The following is a partial list of products whose documentation you might need to reference during cluster installation:

    • Oracle Solaris OS

    • Solaris Volume Manager software

    • Sun QFS software

    • Third-party applications

  4. Plan your cluster configuration.

    Use the planning guidelines in Chapter 1, Planning the Oracle Solaris Cluster Configuration and in the Oracle Solaris Cluster Data Services Planning and Administration Guide to determine how to install and configure your cluster.


    Caution  -  Plan your cluster installation completely. Identify requirements for all data services and third-party products before you begin Oracle Solaris and Oracle Solaris Cluster software installation. Failure to do so might result in installation errors that require you to completely reinstall the Oracle Solaris and Oracle Solaris Cluster software.

  5. Obtain all necessary updates for your cluster configuration.

    For instructions on updating your software, see Chapter 11, Updating Your Software, in Oracle Solaris Cluster System Administration Guide .
