This procedure defines interconnect component as any one of the following components:
Transport junction (switch)
This section contains the procedure for adding interconnect components to nodes in a running cluster.
Before You Begin
This procedure relies on the following prerequisites and assumptions:
Your cluster is operational and all nodes are powered on.
If virtual local area networks (VLANs) are configured, more than one cluster might be impacted by removing a transport junction. Ensure that all clusters are prepared for the removal of a transport junction. Also, record the configuration information of the transport junction you plan to replace and configure the new transport junction accordingly.
For more information about how to configure VLANs, see Configuring VLANs as Private Interconnect Networks.
You can also add an interconnect cable, switch, or private adapter using the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager GUI. For GUI log-in instructions, see How to Access Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager in Oracle Solaris Cluster System Administration Guide .
If you are adding a transport junction, you do not need to shut down and power off the node. Proceed to Step 2.
If you are adding a transport cable, you do not need to shut down and power off the node. Proceed to Step 2.
If your node has dynamic reconfiguration enabled and you are replacing a transport adapter, you do not need to shut down and power off the node. Proceed to Step 2.
If your node does not have dynamic reconfiguration enabled and you are adding a transport adapter, shut down and power off the node with the transport adapter you are adding.
For the full procedure about shutting down a node, see Chapter 3, Shutting Down and Booting a Cluster, in Oracle Solaris Cluster System Administration Guide .
If you are using an Ethernet or InfiniBand interconnect, see How to Install Ethernet or InfiniBand Transport Cables and Transport Junctions for cabling diagrams and considerations.
For the procedure about installing transport adapters or setting transport adapter DIP switches, see the documentation that shipped with your host adapter and node hardware.
To reconfigure Oracle Solaris Cluster software with the new interconnect component, see Chapter 7, Administering Cluster Interconnects and Public Networks, in Oracle Solaris Cluster System Administration Guide .
