You can perform administrative tasks on a cluster that is running disaster recovery framework by using the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager browser interface or the command-line interface (CLI).
The procedures in this guide describe how to perform administrative tasks by using the CLI.
The disaster recovery framework supports Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager, a browser interface tool that you can use to monitor disaster recovery framework status and perform various administrative tasks on your cluster. For specific information about how to use Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager, see Chapter 12, Using the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager Browser Interface in Administering an Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 Configuration and the Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager online help.
You can use Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager to administer the disaster recovery framework only after the disaster recovery framework has been enabled by using the geoadm start command. For information about enabling and disabling the disaster recovery framework, see Administering the Disaster Recovery Framework.
Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager does not support creating custom heartbeats outside of a partnership. If you want to specify a custom heartbeat in a partnership join operation, use the CLI to run the geops join-partnership command.
To access Oracle Solaris Cluster Manager, do the following:
Log in as the root role or a role that provides solaris.cluster.modify and solaris.cluster.admin authorizations.
Table 1, Disaster Recovery Framework CLI lists the commands that you can use to administer the disaster recovery framework. For more information about each command, refer to the Disaster Recovery Framework Reference for Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4.
