Before adding an Oracle Solaris host or a virtual machine to an existing global cluster or a zone cluster, ensure that the node has all of the necessary hardware correctly installed and configured, including an operational physical connection to the private cluster interconnect.
For hardware installation information, refer to the Managing Hardware With Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 or the hardware documentation that shipped with your server.
This procedure enables a machine to install itself into a cluster by adding its node name to the list of authorized nodes for that cluster.
The phys-schost# prompt reflects a global-cluster prompt. Perform this procedure on a global cluster.
This procedure provides the long forms of the Oracle Solaris Cluster commands. Most commands also have short forms. Except for the long and short forms of the command names, the commands are identical.
Complete the installation of software of the new node as described in Installing and Configuring an Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 Environment.
Choose "Create a new cluster or add a cluster node", then "Add a Node to an Existing Cluster".
You must also specify a network resource to be used for public network communication on each node. In the following example, the zone name is sczone, and sc_ipmp0 is the IPMP group name.
clzc:sczone>add node clzc:sczone:node>set physical-host=phys-cluster-3 clzc:sczone:node>set hostname=hostname3 clzc:sczone:node>add net clzc:sczone:node:net>set address=hostname3 clzc:sczone:node:net>set physical=sc_ipmp0 clzc:sczone:node:net>end clzc:sczone:node>end clzc:sczone>exit
For detailed instructions on configuring the node, see Creating and Configuring a Zone Cluster in Installing and Configuring an Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 Environment.
# clzonecluster install zone-cluster-name
Press the Return key.
Follow the clsetup prompts. This option tells the cluster to ignore all requests over the public network from any new machine that is trying to add itself to the cluster.
clsetup(8CL) man page.
For a complete list of tasks for adding a cluster node, see Figure 14, Table 14, Task Map: Adding a Node to an Existing Global or Zone Cluster.
To add a node to an existing resource group, see the Planning and Administering Data Services for Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4.
