Administration Tools

You can perform administrative tasks for an Oracle Solaris Cluster configuration by using the command line or the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager browser interface. The following section provides an overview of Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager and the command-line tools.

Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager Browser Interface

Oracle Solaris Cluster software supports a browser interface, Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager, that you can use to perform various administrative tasks on your cluster. See Using the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager Browser Interface for more information. You can also get Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager log-in instructions at How to Access Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager.

Following are some of the tasks that you can perform in Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager:

  • Create and update a zone cluster

  • Create resources and resource groups

  • Add a file system, logical host, or shared storage to a zone cluster

  • Create an Oracle Database data service

  • Manage nodes in a global cluster or a zone cluster

  • Add and manage quorum devices and servers

  • Add and manage NAS storage devices, and manage disks and device groups

  • Manage disaster recovery framework partnerships
