Acceptance Test for SUN Cluster



  • 1. Linker ld
    all: Have a question with respect to the linker 'ld' on Solaris 2.8 We use a machine (say A) for our loadbuild. Our patch team (which patches fixes) uses another machine (say B)to build. The problem encountered is this: Machine B installed some OS patches. Hence, the code linked in that machine using 'ld' produced different size executable and sharedLib than what was produced in Machine A. To ensure both machines produce same size executable, there was a proposal to put the linker 'ld' in a repository like ClearCase(CC). this way the linker used is the same. I guess i could put 'ld' on CC. However, iam not sure whether that alone would work? are there any other libraries which 'ld' needs which should also be in CC? Also, is there a chance that some other OS patching in the future could cause the 'ld'(which i put in CC) to fail in future? Thanks for your time in advance! Madhu
  • 2. netra x1 serial console multi user login
    hi there on my netra x1 configure on the boot prompt to use seriala for in/out is can succesfully login in single user mode and acces the machine but if i switch to multiuser mode (exit/ctrl-d) apparently the tty settings change in such a way that a lf or cr gives a new login prompt but trying to login with a username (eg.root) gives an emptyline and the login prompt again. i tried every possible option in /etc/ttydefs and /etc/inittab and basically am stuck getting this machine accessed after single user mode any suggestions? regards hoyte swager XXXX@XXXXX.COM
  • 3. Fault tolerance with RAID
    Hello. I am not that familiar with Solaris, and have to face an issue I'd appreciate some help with. I currently have and use Solaris 8 on a small SPARC (Ultra Enterprise 2), with no particular problems. However, we are about to purchase a larger machine, that will most probably have RAID support (with hot swapping). So I have some simple questions: 1. Provided we have hardware RAID support, is there anything that has to be done from inside the OS? I mean, is hot swapping and all the features of RAID transparent to the sysadmin? 2. Can this whole idea of having mirrored disks be applied to the OS' filesystems as well (eg. /usr) or is it used only for data filesystems? (eg. /var/mail). Sorry for not being specific enough. In general, any good resource regarding RAID and Solaris would be mostly appreciated. Regards, Greg
  • 4. Job ID page question
    Is possible to disable the job identification page? The first page that prints out when you send a file to the printer. I have edited the interface script file for the printer but couldn't get rid of it. Thanks for any info.

The last time I had to test this I merely went to the production node 
and pulled the power cable with a boatload of oracle transactions in 
progress. =)


Similar Threads:

1.Sun Cluster + QFS or Sun Cluster + Veritas

Right now I've got some 3.5 Veritas Clusters running Oracle8
that are due for an upgrade.

I'm playing around with the idea of getting rid of all of
our Veritas software and replacing it with Sun software
(since cluster is now free).

So it would be:

Solaris 10 (01/06 HW release, latest patches)
Sun Volume Manager
Sun Cluster 3.1

I've used Veritas for so long now & am weary of mixing it in
with Sun Cluster.  Ideally - I'd like to just go with one vendor
for my clustering.

Is MPXIO comparable to DMP?  Are people actually running Sun volume 
manager under production Oracle DB's?  I've used SVM for mirroring
boot drives on web servers and app servers but never in the database

I've read that QFS can do the volume management all on it's own -
is that what people are typically using with Sun Clusters?

I'm reading the FAQs and white papers right now but would love to
hear from some people with real world experience with the stuff.


2.Clustering Sun: Sun cluster or Veritas?

Any of you have experience with Sun Cluster software and/or Veritas

I have worked with IBMS HACMP but none of the other solutions.  Even
that was fairly simple active/passive clusters, nothing too fancy.

Any pros/cons to running either Suns cluster software or Veritas' on
Sun systems? Probably either V880s or V1280s.  I have been looking at
the docs. on Suns site about Sun Cluster 3.1 but of course that is
just technical info, always best to hear from others with real
experience too :)
