Public-Network IP Addresses

For information about the use of public networks by the cluster, see Public Network Adapters and IP Network Multipathing in Oracle Solaris Cluster Concepts Guide .

You must set up a number of public-network IP addresses for various Oracle Solaris Cluster components. The number of addresses that you need depends on which components you include in your cluster configuration. Each Oracle Solaris host in the cluster configuration must have at least one public-network connection to the same set of public subnets.

The following table lists the components that need public-network IP addresses assigned. Add these IP addresses to the following locations:

  • Any naming services that are used

  • The local /etc/inet/hosts file on each global-cluster node, after you install Oracle Solaris software

  • The local /etc/inet/hosts file on any exclusive-IP non-global zone

Table 1-2  Oracle Solaris Cluster Components That Use Public-Network IP Addresses
Number of IP Addresses Needed
Administrative console
1 IP address per subnet
Global-cluster nodes
1 IP address per node, per subnet
Zone-cluster nodes
1 IP address per node, per subnet
Domain console network interface
1 IP address per domain
(Optional) Non-global zones
1 IP address per subnet
Console-access device
1 IP address
Logical addresses
1 IP address per logical host resource, per subnet
