Administering the Cluster Interconnects

This section provides the procedures for reconfiguring cluster interconnects, such as cluster transport adapters and cluster transport cables. These procedures require that you install Oracle Solaris Cluster software.

Most of the time, you can use the clsetup utility to administer the cluster transport for the cluster interconnects. See the clsetup(8CL) man page for more information. All cluster interconnect commands must be run from a global-cluster node.

Note -  You can also use the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager browser interface to perform some of these tasks. For log-in instructions, see How to Access Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager.

For cluster software installation procedures, see the Installing and Configuring an Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 Environment. For procedures about servicing cluster hardware components, see the Managing Hardware With Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4.

Note -  You can usually choose to use the default port name, where appropriate, during cluster interconnect procedures. The default port name is the same as the internal node ID number of the node that hosts the adapter end of the cable.
