You can install Geographic Edition software on a running cluster without disruption. Because the Geographic Edition software installation process does not require you to restart Oracle Solaris Cluster software, the cluster remains in production with services running.
For zone clusters that are already created, when you install the Geographic Edition software, the software is propagated to the zone-cluster nodes by default. If you create a zone cluster after Geographic Edition software is installed in the global cluster, you must install the Geographic Edition software in the new zone-cluster nodes.
This section contains lists of the tasks you need to perform to create a Geographic Edition configuration.
Before you begin administering the Geographic Edition framework, you must identify the Oracle Solaris Cluster installations you want to host protection groups. Then, you need to adjust the Oracle Solaris Cluster configuration and environment to support the formation of partnerships and protection groups with the Geographic Edition framework. The following table describes these prerequisite tasks.
After you have completed the prerequisite configuration tasks, you can install and configure the Geographic Edition software as described in the following table.
