Hi Ravi

There is more to configuring a cluster than to add resources for filesystems. You need to configure a Service Group with all resources that make up the application/service with dependencies between the resources.
We cannot cover this in a couple of screenshots.

Best to either attend a 5-day VCS training course or download manuals from

Scroll down to Veritas Storage Foundation and High Availability,  find your version under the Solaris column, and click on the 'Product guides' link.

Suggested downloads:
Veritas Storage Foundation and High Availability Solutions Getting Started Guide
Veritas Cluster Server Administrator's Guide
Veritas Cluster Server Bundled Agents Reference Guide
Veritas Storage Foundation and High Availability Solutions Replication Administrator's Guide

Do you have basic knowledge of Volume Replicator? Best to understand the basics of VVR before you try and configure it in a GCO cluster.
If not, you will need to download and study 
Veritas Volume Replicator guides as well.

Supporting Storage Foundation and VCS on Unix and Windows as well as NetBackup on Unix and Windows

Please reference to the Admin Guide:

The Chapter 5 "Administering the cluster fromClusterManager (Java console)" will be helpful for you.

Probably you can start looking into VOM. VOM provides end to end visibility of both the storage and availability side of Datacenter. VOM has ability to configure VCS objects like Service Groups/ Resources and Configure Fire Drills on top of them.

Configuring VxFS File System and other SF side operations can also be done by installing an SF Administration addon on top of VOM.
