Resource Group Manager Administrative Interface

Oracle Solaris Cluster provides both the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager browser user interface and a set of commands for administering a cluster.

Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager

    Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager is a web-based tool that enables you to perform configuration and administration tasks, including the following:

  • Configure new cluster components.

  • Administer a cluster.

  • Create and configure resources and resource groups.

  • Configure data services with the Oracle Solaris Cluster software.

See the Administering an Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 Configuration for instructions on how to access and use Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager. Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager provides online help for most administrative tasks.

clsetup Utility

You can perform most Oracle Solaris Cluster administration tasks interactively with the clsetup(8CL) utility.

    You can administer the following Oracle Solaris Cluster elements with the clsetup utility:

  • Quorum

  • Resource groups

  • Data services

  • Cluster interconnect

  • Device groups and volumes

  • Private host names

  • New nodes

  • Other cluster tasks

    You can also perform the following operations with the clsetup utility:

  • Create a resource group

  • Create a zone cluster

  • Add a network resource to a resource group

  • Add a data service resource to a resource group

  • Add a file system to a zone cluster

  • Add a storage device to a zone cluster

  • Add a network address to a zone cluster

  • Register a resource type

  • Bring a resource group online or offline

  • Switchover a resource group

  • Suspend or resume the automatic recovery actions of a resource group

  • Enable or disable a resource

  • Change resource group properties

  • Change resource properties

  • Remove a resource from a resource group

  • Remove a resource group

  • Clear the Stop_failed error flag from a resource

Administrative Commands

The Oracle Solaris Cluster commands for administering RGM objects are clresourcetype, clresourcegroup, clresource, clnode, and cluster.

The clresourcetype, clresourcegroup, and clresource commands enable you to view, create, configure, and delete a resource type, a resource group, and the resource objects that are used by the RGM. These commands are part of the administrative interface for the cluster, but are not designed to be used in the same programming context as the application interface that is described in the rest of this chapter. However, the clresourcetype, clresourcegroup, and clresource commands are the tools for constructing the cluster configuration in which the API operates. Understanding the administrative interface sets the context for understanding the application interface. See the clresourcetype(8CL), clresourcegroup(8CL), and clresource(8CL) man pages for details about the administrative tasks that you can perform with these commands.
