How to Add a New Logical-Domain Node to an Existing Cluster by Using the Oracle VM Server for SPARC Template for Oracle Solaris Cluster

Perform this procedure to add a logical domain as a node to an existing cluster by using the Oracle VM Server for SPARC template for Oracle Solaris Cluster.

Before You Begin

Perform the following tasks:

  • Ensure that the Oracle Solaris OS is installed to support the 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.

  • SPARC: If you are configuring Oracle VM Server for SPARC I/O domains or guest domains as cluster nodes, ensure that the Oracle VM Server for SPARC software is installed on each physical machine and that the domains meet Oracle Solaris Cluster requirements. See How to Install Oracle VM Server for SPARC Software and Create Domains.

  • Ensure that the cluster is prepared for the addition of the new node. See How to Prepare the Cluster for Additional Global-Cluster Nodes.

  1. Use the ovmtdeploy command to create the new logical domain and add it to the cluster as a new node.

    For more information, see “Establishing a New Logical-Domain Cluster by Deploying theOracle VM Server for SPARC Template for Oracle Solaris Cluster” on page 122.

  2. Use the ovmtconfig command to configure the new domain with the system andcluster properties.

    For more information, see “Establishing a New Logical-Domain Cluster by Deploying theOracle VM Server for SPARC Template for Oracle Solaris Cluster” on page 122.

Next Steps
