Administering an Oracle® Solaris Cluster 4.4 Configuration

Performing Zone Cluster Administrative Tasks

You can perform other administrative tasks on a zone cluster, such as moving the zone path, preparing a zone cluster to run applications, and cloning a zone cluster. All of these commands must be performed from a node of the global cluster.

You can create a new zone cluster or add a file system or storage device to an existing zone cluster by using the clsetup utility to launch the zone cluster configuration wizard. The zones in a zone cluster are configured when you run clzonecluster install –c to configure the profiles. See Creating and Configuring a Zone Cluster in Installing and Configuring an Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 Environment for instructions about using the clsetup utility or the –c config_profile option.

You can also use the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager browser interface to create a zone cluster, or add a file system or storage device to it. You can also use the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager browser interface to edit the zone cluster's Resource Security property. Click Zone Clusters, click the name of the zone cluster to go to its page, then click the Solaris Resources tab to administer zone-cluster components, or click Properties to administer zone-cluster properties. For Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager log-in instructions, see How to Access Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager.

Note -  The Oracle Solaris Cluster commands that you run only from a node in the global cluster are not valid for use with zone clusters. See the appropriate Oracle Solaris Cluster man page for information about the valid use of a command in zone clusters.
Table 18  Other Zone-Cluster Tasks
Move the zone path to a new zone path
clzonecluster move -f zonepath zone-cluster-name
Prepare the zone cluster to run applications
clzonecluster ready -n nodename zone-cluster-name
Check the status of cluster interconnect of exclusive-IP zone cluster
clintr status -Z zone-cluster-name
List information about the private interconnects configured for the zone clusters
clintr show -Z zone-cluster-name
Change the monitor_timeoutand monitor_quantum values corresponding to the private interconnects of the zone cluster
clzonecluster set -p monitor_quantum=900 zone-cluster-name
clzonecluster show zone-cluster-name
Restore the nodes from the United Archives
Configure or install a zone cluster from the United Archive
Use a command:
clzonecluster clone -Z target- zone-cluster-name 
[-m copymethod] source-zone-cluster-name
Halt the source zone cluster before you use the clone subcommand. The target zone cluster must already be configured.
