How to Configure the File System on the Primary Cluster for the NFS Application

Before You Begin

Complete the procedure How to Configure a Device Group on the Secondary Cluster.

  1. On nodeA and nodeB, assume the role that provides solaris.cluster.admin authorization.
  2. On nodeA and nodeB, create a mount-point directory for the NFS file system.

    For example:

    nodeA# mkdir /global/mountpoint
  3. On nodeA and nodeB, configure the master volume to not be mounted automatically on the mount point.

    Add or replace the following text in the /etc/vfstab file on nodeA and nodeB. The text must be on a single line.

    /dev/md/nfsset/dsk/d200 /dev/md/nfsset/rdsk/d200 \
    /global/mountpoint ufs 3 no global,logging
  4. On nodeA and nodeB, create a mount point for metadevice d204.

    The following example creates the mount point /global/etc.

    nodeA# mkdir /global/etc
  5. On nodeA and nodeB, configure metadevice d204 to be mounted automatically on the mount point.

    Add or replace the following text in the /etc/vfstab file on nodeA and nodeB. The text must be on a single line.

    /dev/md/nfsset/dsk/d204 /dev/md/nfsset/rdsk/d204 \
    /global/etc ufs 3 yes global,logging
  6. Mount metadevice d204 on nodeA.
    nodeA# mount /global/etc
  7. Create the configuration files and information for the Oracle Solaris Cluster HA for NFS data service.
    1. Create a directory called /global/etc/SUNW.nfs on nodeA.
      nodeA# mkdir -p /global/etc/SUNW.nfs
    2. Create the file /global/etc/SUNW.nfs/dfstab.nfs-rs on nodeA.
      nodeA# touch /global/etc/SUNW.nfs/dfstab.nfs-rs
    3. Add the following line to the /global/etc/SUNW.nfs/dfstab.nfs-rs file on nodeA.
      share -F nfs -o rw -d "HA NFS" /global/mountpoint
