This procedure uses the Oracle Solaris pkg command to install Oracle Solaris Cluster framework package groups and individual packages.
Follow this procedure to perform one or more of the following installation tasks:
To install the Oracle Solaris Cluster framework and data service software packages on each node in the global cluster. These nodes can be physical machines or (SPARC only) Oracle VM Server for SPARC I/O domains or guest domains, or a combination of any of these types of nodes.
To install data services.
Before You Begin
Perform the following tasks:
Ensure that the Oracle Solaris OS is installed to support Oracle Solaris Cluster software.
If the Oracle Solaris software is already installed on the node, you must ensure that the Oracle Solaris installation meets the requirements for the Oracle Solaris Cluster software and any other software that you intend to install on the cluster. See How to Install Oracle Solaris Software for more information about installing the Oracle Solaris software to meet Oracle Solaris Cluster software requirements.
Choose which Oracle Solaris Cluster software packages to install.
The following table lists the primary group packages for the Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 software and the principal features that each group package contains. You must install at least the ha-cluster-framework-minimal group package.
However, you can add or remove other, optional packages without removing the ha-cluster-minimal group package.
If you choose to install the ha-cluster-full package, the GUI will be installed automatically. If you choose to install another package, you can manually install the GUI later.
As the root role, use the following command to start the pconsole utility:
adminconsole# pconsole host[:port] […] &
The pconsole utility also opens a master window from which you can send your input to all individual console windows at the same time.
During the installation of the Oracle Solaris OS, a restricted network profile is used that disables external access for certain network services. The restricted services include the RPC communication service, which is required for cluster communication.
# svccfg -s svc:/network/rpc/bind setprop config/local_only = false # svcadm refresh network/rpc/bind:default # svcprop network/rpc/bind:default | grep local_only
The output of the last command should show that the local_only property is now set to false.
Alternatively, if your user account is assigned the System Administrator profile, issue commands as non-root through a profile shell, or prefix the command with the pfexec command.
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/repository-location/.
# pkg set-publisher -p \ -k /var/pkg/ssl/Oracle_Solaris_Cluster_4.4.key.pem \ -c /var/pkg/ssl/Oracle_Solaris_Cluster_4.4.certificate.pem
Specifies the full path to the downloaded SSL key file.
Specifies the full path to the downloaded certificate file.
For more information, see the pkg(1) man page.
Oracle Solaris Cluster 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 -p file:///mnt/repo
Before installing the Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 software on a host upgraded from Oracle Solaris 11.3 to 11.4, ensure that consolidation/cacao/cacao-incorporation has been upgraded to Oracle Solaris 11.4 version. For example:
# pkg list consolidation/cacao/cacao-incorporation NAME (PUBLISHER) VERSION IFO consolidation/cacao/cacao-incorporation 11.4-126.96.36.199.0.1.0 i--
If the package version is still from Oracle Solaris 11.3, upgrade the cacao package on all nodes.
# pkg update consolidation/cacao/cacao-incorporation
Use pkg list to confirm the package was updated.
# pkg list consolidation/cacao/cacao-incorporation
# pkg list -a package-name # pkg publisher PUBLISHER TYPE STATUS P LOCATION solaris origin online F ha-cluster-repository 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 Updating Systems and Adding Software in Oracle Solaris 11.4.
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 pattern to get more information to help you diagnose and fix the problem. For troubleshooting information, see Appendix A, Troubleshooting Package Installation and Update, in Updating Systems and Adding Software in Oracle Solaris 11.4.
# /usr/bin/pkg install ha-cluster-package
$ pkg info -r ha-cluster-package
Package installation succeeded if the state is Installed.
For instructions on updating your software, see Updating Your Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 Environment.
If you want to install the Oracle HSM file system software, follow the procedures for initial installation. See How to Install Oracle HSM Software.
