How to Configure a Zone Cluster from the Unified Archive

Use the clzonecluster command to launch an interactive utility to configure a solaris, solaris10 or labeled branded zone cluster from the Unified Archive. The clzonecluster configure utility lets you specify a recovery archive or a clone archive.

If you prefer to use the command line rather than the interactive utility to configure a zone cluster from an archive, use the clzonecluster configure –f command-file command. See the clzonecluster(8CL) man page for more information.

Note -  If the zone cluster that you want to install was already configured using other supported methods, you do not have to configure the zone cluster from a Unified Archive.
  1. Create a recovery or clone archive.
    phys-schost# archiveadm create -r archive-location

    Use the create command to create a clone archive or the –r option to create a recovery archive. For more information about using the archiveadm command, see the archiveadm(8) man page.

  2. Assume the root role on a node of the global cluster that will host the zone cluster.
  3. Configure the zone cluster from the recovered or cloned archive in the Unified Archive.
    phys-schost-1# clzonecluster configure zone-cluster-name

    The clzonecluster configure zone-cluster-name command launches the interactive utility, where you can specify create -a archive [other-options-such-as-"-x"]. The archive can be either a clone archive or a recovery archive.

    Note -  The zone cluster members must be added to the configuration before a zone cluster can be created.

    The configure subcommand uses the zonecfg command to configure a zone on each specified machine. The configure subcommand lets you specify properties that apply to each node of the zone cluster. These properties have the same meaning as established by the zonecfg command for individual zones. The configure subcommand supports the configuration of properties that are unknown to the zonecfg command. The configure subcommand launches an interactive shell if you do not specify the –foption. The –f option takes a command file as its argument. The configure subcommand uses this file to create or modify zone clusters non-interactively.
