: Say if I need two or more servers for the licensing server process,
: either clustering config or failback config. How would the hostid
: going to be assigned?
That question didn't really make any sense. However, I am going to try
to answer it.
In a Sun Cluster environment (regardless of type), you install the
operating system and configure the machines as individual machines first.
Then you install the Cluster software and then the Volume Management
Software, then you create the virtual hosts and processes.
So, you would have (at minimum): 2 Servers, 1 Adminin Workstation, 1
terminal server, and one external disk cabinet. You would have to have
a minimum of 5 ip addresses. Your host table on each machine would look
something like this:
188.8.131.52 aws # Admin Workstation
184.108.40.206 tc # Terminal Concentrator
220.127.116.11 node0 # node0
18.104.22.168 node1 # node1
#22.214.171.124 node3 # node3
#126.96.36.199 node4 # node4
However, you really should have duplicate cards (2 qfe cards work great)
in each server to allow failover between the cards before having to
failover to the other machine. In other words, each server would have at
minimum 2 physical interfaces (in addition to the private cluster network
interfaces) for every virtual host/process.
