Perform this procedure to install Oracle VM Server for SPARC software on a physically clustered machine and to create I/O and guest domains.

Before You Begin

    Observe the following special instructions:

    • If you create guest domains, adhere to the Oracle Solaris Cluster guidelines for creating guest domains in a cluster.

    • Use the mode=sc option for all virtual switch devices that connect the virtual network devices that are used as the cluster interconnect.

    • For shared storage, map only the full SCSI disks into the guest domains.
