You must install the Geographic Edition software on every node of each cluster in your geographically separated cluster by using the pkg add command.
This procedure explains how to install the Geographic Edition software. Perform the procedure in the global zone for each node of a global cluster or zone cluster that you are configuring in a partnership.
Before You Begin
The following manuals contain information that can help you plan your configuration and prepare your installation strategy:
Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.3 Release Notes – Restrictions, bug workarounds, and other late-breaking information.
Documentation for related third-party software products.
Before you begin to install software, make the following preparations:
Ensure that the Oracle Solaris OS is installed to support the Geographic Edition software.
If Oracle Solaris software is already installed on the node, you must ensure that the Oracle Solaris installation meets the requirements for Geographic Edition software and any other software that you intend to install on the cluster.
The repository setup process depends on whether the nodes have access to the Internet or whether you are using an ISO image of the software.
The certification page is displayed with download buttons for the key and the certificate.
In the following example, the repository name is https://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/cluster/.
# pkg set-publisher \ -k /var/pkg/ssl/Oracle_Solaris_Cluster_4.1.key.pem \ -c /var/pkg/ssl/Oracle_Solaris_Cluster_4.1.certificate.pem \ -O https://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/cluster/ ha-cluster
Specifies the full path to the downloaded SSL key file.
Specifies the full path to the downloaded certificate file.
Specifies the URL to the Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.1 package repository.
For more information, see the pkg (1) man page.
Oracle Solaris Cluster software, which includes Geographic Edition software, is part of the Oracle Solaris Product Pack. Follow online instructions to complete selection of the media pack and download the software.
# lofiadm -a path-to-ISO-image /dev/lofi/N # mount -F hsfs /dev/lofi/N /mnt
Specifies the full path and file name of the ISO image.
# pkg set-publisher -g file:///mnt/repo ha-cluster
# pkg publisher PUBLISHER TYPE STATUS P LOCATION solaris origin online F solaris-repository ha-cluster origin online F ha-cluster-repository
For information about setting the solaris publisher, see Adding, Modifying, or Removing Package Publishers in Adding and Updating Software in Oracle Solaris 11.3.
If you do not get any error messages when you use the –nv options, run the command again without the –n option to actually perform the installation or update. If you do get error messages, run the command again with more –v options (for example, –nvv) or more of the package FMRI to get more information to help you diagnose and fix the problem. For troubleshooting information, see Appendix A, Troubleshooting Package Installation and Update, in Adding and Updating Software in Oracle Solaris 11.3.
# /usr/bin/pkg install ha-cluster-geo-full
Output is similar to the following example, which checks the installation state of the ha-cluster-geo-full group package.
% pkg info ha-cluster/group-package/ha-cluster-geo-full Name: ha-cluster/group-package/ha-cluster-geo-full Summary: Oracle Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition full group package Description: Oracle Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition full group package Category: Meta Packages/Group Packages State: Installed Publisher: ha-cluster Version: 4.1.0 Build Release: 5.11 Branch: 0.22 Packaging Date: Sat Oct 22 07:28:36 2011 Size: 77.00 B FMRI: pkg://ha-cluster/ha-cluster/group-package/ha-cluster-geo-full@version:dateTtimeZ
