Add new node for Veritas Cluster in Solaris 10

Created: 07 Dec 2013 • Updated: 10 Dec 2013 | 6 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi,

 

Sorry if Im not asking this at the roght place... Im noew here..

Im trying to add a new node to my Veritas 3-node Cluster. The Nodes runs Solaris 10 SPARC as OS.

So, the first thing I notice was yhat the new node does not have the VRTS packages for Solaris, so I have to install them... thi thing is.. where I can DL them? IO do not have the Veritas CD anymore... The package list is below.

VRTSaslapm

VRTSat    

VRTScps   

VRTScutil 

VRTSdbed  

VRTSfssdk 

VRTSgab   

VRTSllt   

VRTSob    

VRTSodm   

VRTSperl  

VRTSsfmh  

VRTSspt   

VRTSvcs   

VRTSvcsag 

VRTSvcsea 

VRTSvlic  

VRTSvxfen 

VRTSvxfs  

VRTSvxvm 

====

Also I have connect for the HB network the interfaces igb1 and igb2... I cant see them in the ifconfiog command.. is this something to worry when creating the llttab?

I was planning to do something like this:

set-node NEWNODE

set-cluster 10000

link igb1 /dev/igb1 - ether - -

link igb2 /dev/igb2 - ether - -

 

root@dp-node9 # ls -la igb*
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          29 Dec  5 17:22 igb -> ../devices/pseudo/clone@0:igb
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          51 Dec  5 17:22 igb0 -> ../devices/pci@400/pci@2/pci@0/pci@6/network@0:igb0
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          53 Dec  5 17:22 igb1 -> ../devices/pci@400/pci@2/pci@0/pci@6/network@0,1:igb1
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          51 Dec  5 17:22 igb2 -> ../devices/pci@400/pci@2/pci@0/pci@7/network@0:igb2
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          53 Dec  5 17:22 igb3 -> ../devices/pci@400/pci@2/pci@0/pci@7/network@0,1:igb3
root@dp-node9 # pwd
/dev
 

Is this correct?

 

Tks in advance,

Joao Telles

Hi Joao,

LLT works on mac protocol ..it is absolutely normal that LLT interfaces will not be visible in "ifconfig" command ...

to check LLT status, you need to see

# lltstat -vvn | more

Here you should see the interfaces configured for LLT .. the node from which you are running the command will be indicated by " * "...

Secondly, How did you install packages ? VCS provides easy installer method which will help you to install all the required packages ...

Are you using VCS Java GUI to add the node to cluster ? If yes, refer below article

https://sort.symantec.com/public/documents/sfha/6....

If you are using command line to manage the cluster, refer following link

https://sort.symantec.com/public/documents/sfha/6....

you can also install VCS using "responsefile" .. this is an easy method to perform automated install ... read here on how to perform this task:

https://sort.symantec.com/public/documents/sfha/6....

If you went for manual installation .. refer below documentation (considering you are using 6.0 version)

https://sort.symantec.com/public/documents/sfha/6....

https://sort.symantec.com/public/documents/sfha/6....

 

If you are new to product, would suggest to read out the admin guide so that you can gain more knowledge on the product & administer VCS

Tks for the reply.

Is it absolutely mandatory to - Install VCS and required patches on the new system. -.

Is there a way to maybe rync the Veritas SW to this new node and apply the license later? I have the license but I dont have the SW CD-Rom to do the installation in the new system.

Hi,

yes, it is must to install VCS & VCS related patvhes & highly recommended to keep same level of OS patches..

If you don't have CDROM, What I could suggest is using a flash archive method ..this will require OS tasks like creating a flar & using the jumpstart method to install the product ..

Refer to below article.

https://sort.symantec.com/public/documents/sfha/6....

 

Please note above articles are for VCS 6.0. if you are using any other version, please select the right guide from below link:

You can download Symantec products from FileConnect if you have license and account with Symantec.

http://www.symantec.com/downloads/fileconnect

If you have the base version of the product, the patches can be downloaded from SORT https://sort.symantec.com/patches.
