After you install Storage Foundation and High Availability (SFHA) and create a cluster, you can add and remove nodes from the cluster. You can create clusters of up to 64 nodes.

To add a node to an existing SFHA cluster:

 

  1. Complete the prerequisites and preparatory tasks before adding a node to the cluster.

 

Before adding a node to an existing SFHA cluster, verify that you have met the hardware and software requirements. You also need to prepare the new node.

For information on preparing to add a node to an existing cluster, see:

Before adding a node to a cluster

 

  1. Add a new node to the cluster.

There are three ways to add a new node to the cluster:

 

  1. Update the repository database (only if you are using the Storage Foundation for Databases (SFDB) tools).

 

If you are using Database Storage Checkpoints, Database FlashSnap, or SmartTier

for Oracle in your configuration, you have to update the SFDB repository to enable access for the new node after it is added to the cluster.

For more information on updating the SFDB repository, see:

Updating the Storage Foundation for Databases (SFDB) repository after adding a node.

 

Veritas Storage Foundation and High Availability documentation for other platforms and releases can be found on the SORT website.
