This is a HowTo based on the OpenSource Linux Cluster solution PaceMaker/ Heartbeat.
Openindiana HA Cluster HOWTO and Package to install via pkgadd
nstaller script, 29.4.2012 (thanks to TheMoron, who send me the script)
Look at the scripts, first run clusterbuilder.sh on both nodes
then setupHeartBeat on node 1 to create the configuration file (is copied to node 2 automatically)
after this: Pacemaker is installed and Heartbeat is running as a service
see install log at booki.cc (work in progress, If you are experienced with PaceMaker/ hearbeat: Your contribution and help is welcome)
Documentation for HA+Pacemaker:
A Linux version of HA+Pacemaker setup. Solaris OSes would need svcadm scripts to automatically start services at boot up.
My intention is to collect infos about a very basic entry level config build from two OI nodes.
You should be able to evaluate virtualized and build in hardware with the same config.
Example and goal:
A two node OI cluster with shared iSCSI or SAS storage and High Availability for CIFS and NFS services
Any suggestions for such a as easy as possible default (virtual and hardware) config, experiences, comments, persons working with it or on it..
please discuss at http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1685548
This is my first cluster with this solution, so I need help to build such a default config.
I will write down my current state at http://booki.cc/howto-setup-openindiana-ha-clusters-in-esxi/
This is a open book, editable for all and I hope for a working config if some more users help to write such a first howto
A suggestion for an entry config from TheMoron with dual path shared storage:
Supermicro 6036ST-6LR. It is the base of Tegile's cluster config as well as iX's TrueNAS pro.
That system is active active hot pluggable, only $3K barebone, two motherboards with 16 dual path bays.
