Connecting and Installing the Clusters

Figure 8 illustrates the cluster configuration the example configuration uses. The secondary cluster in the example configuration contains one node, but other cluster configurations can be used.

Figure 8  Example Cluster Configuration

image:Figure illustrates the cluster configuration used in the example configuration.

Table 24 summarizes the hardware and software that the example configuration requires. The Oracle Solaris OS, Oracle Solaris Cluster software, and volume manager software must be installed on the cluster nodes before Availability Suite software and software updates are installed.

Table 24  Required Hardware and Software
Hardware or Software
Requirement
Node hardware
Availability Suite software is supported on all servers that use Oracle Solaris OS.
For information about which hardware to use, see the Oracle Solaris Cluster Hardware Administration Manual.
Disk space
Approximately 15 Mbytes.
Oracle Solaris OS
Oracle Solaris OS releases that are supported by Oracle Solaris Cluster software. All nodes must use the same version of the Oracle Solaris OS.
For information about installation, see the Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.3 Software Installation Guide
Oracle Solaris Cluster software
At least Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.1 software.
For information about installation, see the Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.3 Software Installation Guide.
Volume manager software
Solaris Volume Manager software. All nodes must use the same version of volume manager software.
Availability Suite software
Different clusters can use different versions of Oracle Solaris OS and Oracle Solaris Cluster software, but you must use the same version of Availability Suite software between clusters.
For information about how to install the software, see the installation manuals for your release of Availability Suite software.
Availability Suite software updates

Example of How to Configure Device Groups and Resource Groups

This section describes how device groups and resource groups are configured for an NFS application. For additional information, see Configuring Replication Resource Groups and Configuring Application Resource Groups.

The following table lists the names of the groups and resources that are created for the example configuration.

Table 25  Summary of the Groups and Resources in the Example Configuration
Group or Resource
Name
Description
Device group
devgrp
The device group
Replication resource group and resources
devgrp-stor-rg
The replication resource group
lhost-reprg-prim, lhost-reprg-sec
The logical host names for the replication resource group on the primary cluster and the secondary cluster
devgrp-stor
The HAStoragePlus resource for the replication resource group
Application resource group and resources
nfs-rg
The application resource group
lhost-nfsrg-prim, lhost-nfsrg-sec
The logical host names for the application resource group on the primary cluster and the secondary cluster
nfs-dg-rs
The HAStoragePlus resource for the application
nfs-rs
The NFS resource

With the exception of devgrp-stor-rg, the names of the groups and resources are example names that can be changed as required. The replication resource group must have a name with the format devicegroupname-stor-rg.
