How to Install a Zone Cluster from the Unified Archive

You can install a zone cluster from the Unified Archive. The clzonecluster install utility lets you specify the absolute path of the archive or the Oracle Solaris 10 image archive to use for the installation. See the solaris10(5) man page for details regarding supported archive types. The absolute path of the archive should be accessible on all the physical nodes of the cluster where the zone cluster will be installed. The Unified Archive installation can use either a recovery archive or a clone archive.

If you prefer to use the command line rather than the interactive utility to install a zone cluster from an archive, use the clzonecluster create –a archive -z archived-zone command. See the clzonecluster(1CL) man page for more information.

  1. Create a recovery or clone archive.
    phys-schost# archiveadm create -r archive-location

    Use the create command to create a clone archive or the –r option to create a recovery archive. For more information about using the archiveadm command, see the archiveadm(1M) man page.

  2. Assume the root role on a node of the global cluster that will host the zone cluster.
  3. Install the zone cluster from the recovered or cloned archive from the Unified Archive.
    phys-schost-1# clzonecluster install -a absolute_path_to_archive zone-cluster-name

    The absolute path of the archive should be accessible on all the physical nodes of the cluster where the zone cluster will be installed. If you have an HTTPS Unified Archive location, specify the SSL certificate, Certificate Authority (CA) certificate, and key files using -x cert|ca-cert|key=file.

    The Unified Archives do not contain zone cluster node resources. Node resources are specified when the cluster is configured. When you configure a zone cluster from a global zone by using the Unified Archives, you must set the zonepath.

    If the Unified Archive contains multiple zones, use the zone-cluster-name to specify the zone name of the source of the installation. See the clzonecluster(1CL) man page for more information.


    Note -  If the source you used to create the Unified Archive does not contain the Oracle Solaris Cluster packages, you must run pkg install ha-cluster-packages (substituting the specific package name, such as ha-cluster-minimal or ha-cluster-framework-full). You will need to boot the zone, run the zlogin command, and then run the pkg install command. This action installs the same packages on the target zone cluster as the global cluster.
  4. Boot the new zone cluster.
    phys-schost-1# clzonecluster boot zone-cluster-name
