Overview of Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager

The Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager browser interface enables you to configure new clusters, launch wizards to perform cluster configuration tasks, graphically display cluster information, check the status of cluster components, and monitor configuration changes. Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager also enables you to perform many administrative tasks, including administering the following Oracle Solaris Cluster components:

  • Data services

  • Zone clusters

  • Nodes

  • Private adapters, cables, and switches

  • Quorum devices

  • Device groups

  • Disks

  • NAS devices

  • Node load limits

  • Resource groups and resources

  • Disaster recovery framework

The Oracle Solaris Cluster manager can be installed on Oracle Solaris Cluster nodes or as a standalone package without installing the Oracle Solaris Cluster software. The manager can then be used to access Oracle Solaris Cluster nodes in global clusters or zone clusters to configure and manage these clusters. The Oracle Solaris Cluster manager is backward compatible. For instance, a manager of Oracle Solaris Cluster version 4.4 can connect to a cluster running Oracle Solaris Clusterversion 4.3. Once logged in to a cluster node, you can log in to other cluster nodes using Oracle Solaris Cluster manager, and then use the drop down menu to go back and forth between clusters that have been logged in to, making it easy to manage multiple clusters using the Oracle Solaris Cluster manager.

Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager currently cannot perform all Oracle Solaris Cluster administrative tasks. You must use the command-line interface for some operations.
