This section describes how to add a node to a global cluster or a zone cluster. You can create a new zone-cluster node on a node of the global cluster that hosts the zone cluster, as long as that global-cluster node does not already host a node of that particular zone cluster.
Specifying an IP address and NIC for each zone cluster node is optional.
That specific zone cluster will not be able to configure NAS devices for use in the zone cluster. The cluster uses the IP address of the zone cluster node when communicating with the NAS device, so not having an IP address prevents cluster support for fencing NAS devices.
The cluster software will activate any logical host IP address on any NIC.
If the original zone cluster node did not have a IP address or NIC specified, then you do not need to specify that information for the new zone cluster node.
In this chapter, phys-schost# reflects a global-cluster prompt. The clzonecluster interactive shell prompt is clzc:schost>.
The following table lists the tasks to perform to add a node to an existing cluster. Perform the tasks in the order shown.
