cluster setup

Setup wizard

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

Note: Use of this command to join a node to an existing cluster is deprecated and might be removed in a future release of Data ONTAP. From a node in the cluster use the system node show-discovered command and then use the cluster add-node command.
The cluster setup command runs the cluster setup wizard, which can be used to either create a cluster or join a node to an existing cluster. When you run the cluster setup wizard, enter the appropriate information at the prompts. You will be asked to provide the following information to create a cluster: You will be asked to provide the following information to join a cluster: The cluster management interface is used for managing the cluster. It provides one IP address to manage the cluster and will fail over to another node, if necessary. This is the preferred IP address for managing the cluster, but you can also manage the cluster by logging in to the node management IP address of a node in the cluster. Since the cluster management interface must be able to fail over, the port role for the interface must be "data" and typically the best choice for an IP address is one on the data network. The node management interface will not fail over, so an IP address on the management network and a port with the role "node management" is the best choice. Alternatively, you can assign an IP address on the data network to the cluster management interface - if that is better in your network topology - but the port must be a data port. The two examples below illustrate the cluster create and cluster join operations, respectively.

Examples

The following example shows the create option of cluster setup.
node::> cluster setup


Welcome to the cluster setup wizard.

You can enter the following commands at any time:
  "help" or "?" - if you want to have a question clarified,
  "back" - if you want to change previously answered questions, and
  "exit" or "quit" - if you want to quit the cluster setup wizard.
     Any changes you made before quitting will be saved.

You can return to cluster setup at any time by typing "cluster setup".
To accept a default or omit a question, do not enter a value.

Cluster "cluster1" has been created.

To complete cluster setup, you must join each additional node to the cluster
by running "system node show-discovered" and "cluster add-node" from a node in the cluster.

To complete system configuration, you can use either OnCommand System Manager
or the Data ONTAP command-line interface.

To access OnCommand System Manager, point your web browser to the cluster
management IP address (https://192.0.2.60).

To access the command-line interface, connect to the cluster management
IP address (for example, ssh admin@192.0.2.60).
