    I have one request. We have a server with zone configured already. We are planning to install and configure solaris clustering (2 node clustering – (zone clustering for the existing zone). Zone is arleady running on seperate LUN not in the rpool. Can you please let me know the steps to configure that.

    For example, we have a server A, Server B and Zone name already configured on Server A is zone-A. Now we want to setup clustering so that Zone-A can failover to Server B.
    We already have private network setup on these servers.

    @Ram, for the complete steps we nned to set up the same environment. But yes this can be done and is now a days widely used by many clients having VCS. For zones to be included in the VCS you need to craete a seperate Resource Type for Zones. This resource type will instruct VCS to failover/failback the zones from one server to other one. Apart from that rest of the configuration will remain the same for VCS. Additionaly you also need to specify the zones dependency as well. Also if you are doing this first time in your environment, Symantec will help you with some pre-defined steps for how to step up zones in VCS. Hope this helps.

    Grateful if someone can advise on the licensing required based the following hardware setup: there are five servers and one standby server. In the event of failure of any one the five servers, the services on the failed server should be failover automatically on the standby node. A quick response will be highly appreciated. Thank you.
