This article is intended to help a new or experienced Oracle Solaris administrator to quickly and easily configure an Oracle Solaris Kernel Zone in failover mode using the Oracle Solaris Cluster HA for Oracle Solaris Zones agent. For more details, see the Oracle Solaris Cluster Data Service for Oracle Solaris Zones Guide.

About Oracle Solaris Cluster Failover Zones

Oracle Solaris Zones include support for fully independent and isolated environments called kernel zones, which provide a full kernel and user environment within a zone. Kernel zones increase operational flexibility and are ideal for multi-tenant environments where maintenance windows are significantly harder to schedule. Kernel zones can run at a different kernel version from the global zone and can be updated separately without requiring a reboot of the global zone. You can also use kernel zones in combination with Oracle VM Sever for SPARC for greater virtualization flexibility.

This article describes how to set up a failover kernel zone on a two-node cluster.

Creating a Server Pool for Oracle Solaris 11 Zones [38466]
Big advantages to pooling your zones

Owen Allen writes, "I talked a bit last week about creating Oracle Solaris 11 zones by following the zone creation how-to. If you're creating zones on at least two systems, it's a good idea to create a server pool for them. A zones server pool lets you group 2 or more global zones (hosts) that have the same processor architecture. The hosts must share storage resources and have access to the same virtual and physical networks..."

How-To: Creating Oracle Solaris 11 Zones [38355]
With Ops Center

Owen Allen writes, "If your environment uses Ops Center, you can use a profile to quickly create new zones with a specific setup. The profile specifies the OS version, zone configuration, storage, and file system for the zone. Once you've created a profile, it automatically generates a deployment plan, which you can run to create a new zone. At runtime you specify the target system, and the name, IP address, and network resources for the new zone, edit any of the info from the profile if you want, and schedule the zone creation.

We've put together a how-to that walks you through the whole process, so take a look..."
