Two technical presentations published at the Open HA Cluster community page
By tf on Nov 10, 2007
The first was given to the Cluster Technology Forum in August 2005. At that time, SC 3.1 08/05 with the HA-Container agent was just released. The presentation explains how some SUNW.gds-based agents are changed in order to work in the traditional RGM model as well as within a non-global zone, which is under HA-Container agent control. The content still applies to the GDS-based agents today with Sun Cluster 3.2 and Open HA Cluster. It helps to understand the code flow for the different deployment scenarios with zones.
The second was given to the Customer Engineering Conference (CEC) in October 2006. It explains the two principle models on how Sun Cluster 3.2 interacts with Solaris Zones. Both models are explained and contrasted with decision criteria as to which model to choose, based on application and service requirements.
