Joining the new nodes to the clusters

You must add the four new MetroCluster IP nodes to the existing MetroCluster configuration.

About this task

You must perform this task on both clusters.

Procedure

  1. Add the new MetroCluster IP nodes to the existing MetroCluster configuration.
    1. Join the first new MetroCluster IP node (node_A_1-new) to the existing MetroCluster IP configuration.
      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.

      Type yes to confirm and continue {yes}: yes
       
      Enter the node management interface port [e0M]: 172.17.8.93
       
      172.17.8.93 is not a valid port.
       
      The physical port that is connected to the node management network. Examples of
      node management ports are "e4a" or "e0M".
       
      You can type "back", "exit", or "help" at any question.
       
       
      Enter the node management interface port [e0M]:
      Enter the node management interface IP address: 172.17.8.93
      Enter the node management interface netmask: 255.255.254.0
      Enter the node management interface default gateway: 172.17.8.1
      A node management interface on port e0M with IP address 172.17.8.93 has been created.
       
      Use your web browser to complete cluster setup by accessing https://172.17.8.93
       
      Otherwise, press Enter to complete cluster setup using the command line
      interface:
       
       
      Do you want to create a new cluster or join an existing cluster? {create, join}:
      join
       
       
      Existing cluster interface configuration found:
       
      Port    MTU     IP              Netmask
      e0c     9000    169.254.148.217 255.255.0.0
      e0d     9000    169.254.144.238 255.255.0.0
       
      Do you want to use this configuration? {yes, no} [yes]: yes
      .
      .
      .
    2. Join the second new MetroCluster IP node (node_A_2-new) to the existing MetroCluster IP configuration.
  2. Repeat these steps to join node_B_1-new and node_B_2-new to cluster_B.
