Creating a Resource Group

A resource group contains a set of resources, all of which are brought online or offline together on a given node or set of nodes. You must create an empty resource group before you place resources into it.

The two resource group types are failover and scalable. A failover resource group can be online on only one node at any time, while a scalable resource group can be online on multiple nodes simultaneously.

The following procedures explain how to use the clresourcegroup command to create a resource group. See the clresourcegroup(1CL) man page for more information.

For conceptual information about resource groups, see Chapter 1, Planning for Oracle Solaris Cluster Data Services and Oracle Solaris Cluster Concepts Guide .

Note -  You can also use the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager GUI to create a failover or scalable resource group. For GUI log-in instructions, see How to Access Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager in Oracle Solaris Cluster System Administration Guide .
