Solaris Cluster 3.2U2 is now available

Guest Author

On behalf of the entire Solaris Cluster team, I am happy to announce the release of Solaris Cluster
3.2 1/09
today. This new
release brings more features for high availability,
virtualization, disaster recovery, flexibility,
diagnosibility, and ease of use. This release also brings support for latest versions of many third party software applications.

If you would like to run Oracle RAC in Solaris Containers non-global zones, also called a zone cluster, check it out! If you would rather choose whether or not to have
a device fenced in the event of a failure, you have the
option to do so. Now, you do not need to create a separate
partition for /globaldevices before installing your cluster.
You can use ZFS for your root partition. "Exclusive-IP Zones" are now supported with Solaris Cluster
to help you isolate Solaris Containers at IP level. A new
configuration checker helps to ensure that your cluster is
not vulnerable in the event of failures.

    The link for ipod versions of Optional Fencing and Agents is broken. Can you please fix them. Thank you.

    The links should be fixed now. They had an extra space at the end of the file name. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Solaris Cluster 3.2 1/09 is only supported on Solaris 10 x86 on the 64-bit platform. There is no 32-bit version that is supported.
