The logical hostname is a special high-availability (HA) resource. The geoadm start command configures the logical hostname that corresponds to the cluster name. The IP address and host maps for the logical hostname must be set up before you run this command. Before assigning hostnames, familiarize yourself with the legal names and values that are described in Appendix B, Legal Names and Values of Geographic Edition Entities.
For more information about using the geoadm start command, see Enabling the Geographic Edition Software.
The following table lists the Oracle Solaris Cluster and Geographic Edition components that require IP addresses. Add these IP addresses to the following locations:
All naming services that are being used
The local /etc/inet/hosts file on each cluster node, after you install the Oracle Solaris OS software
For more information about configuring the IP address and host maps during the installation of Oracle Solaris Cluster software, refer to Chapter 2, Installing Software on Global-Cluster Nodes, in Oracle Solaris Cluster Software Installation Guide .
