Hi,

I have a 4-node Veritas cluster running on Solaris 10 OS and I would like to add a one node to this cluster.

I can do this without stopping the whole cluster right?

So basically it would be something like this:

1- Where can I fnd the list of packages required by VCS for SOlairs 10? - Its not in the installation manual....

2- After the packages installation, add the license to the new node.

# cd /opt/VRTS/bin
# ./vxlicinst -k XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXX

3- Create and update on each node this file /etc/llthosts with the new node name.

4- Create the /etc/llttab in the new node:

> cat /etc/llttab
set-node De6
set-cluster 10000
link nxge2 /dev/nxge:2 - ether - -
link nxge6 /dev/nxge:6 - ether - -

How do I know these links?

5- After set the files run:

# /sbin/lltconfig -c

6- Config the /sbin/gabconfig and run the -c opiton afterwards;

7- Then just add the new node to the cluster and start it in it..

===


Am I missing anything?

Tks,
Joao
