cluster setup

Setup wizard

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

Description

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.

Parameters

None

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.


Do you want to create a new cluster or join an existing cluster? {create, join}:
create


Do you intend for this node to be used as a single node cluster? {yes, no} [no]:
no
Will the cluster network be configured to use network switches? [yes]:
yes

System Defaults:
Private cluster network ports [e0a,e0b].
Cluster port MTU values will be set to 9000.
Cluster interface IP addresses will be automatically generated.

Do you want to use these defaults? {yes, no} [yes]:

It can take several minutes to create cluster interfaces...


Step 1 of 5: Create a Cluster
You can type "back", "exit", or "help" at any question.

Enter the cluster name: cluster1
Enter the cluster base license key: ABCDEFGHIJKLMN

Creating cluster cluster1

Starting cluster support services .....

Cluster cluster1 has been created.


Step 2 of 5: Add Feature License Keys
You can type "back", "exit", or "help" at any question.

Enter an additional license key []:


Step 3 of 5: Set Up a Vserver for Cluster Administration

You can type "back", "exit", or "help" at any question.

Enter the cluster administrator's (username "admin") password:

Retype the password:

Enter the cluster management interface port [e0c]:
Enter the cluster management interface IP address: 192.0.2.60
Enter the cluster management interface netmask: 255.255.255.192
Enter the cluster management interface default gateway: 192.0.2.1

A cluster management interface on port e0c with IP address 192.0.2.60 has been
created. You can use this address to connect to and manage the cluster.

Enter the DNS domain names: data.example.com
Enter the name server IP addresses: 192.0.2.147
DNS lookup for the admin Vserver will use the data.example.com domain.


Step 4 of 5: Configure Storage Failover (SFO)
You can type "back", "exit", or "help" at any question.

SFO is licensed.
SFO will be enabled when the partner joins the cluster.


Step 5 of 5: Set Up the Node
You can type "back", "exit", or "help" at any question.

Where is the controller located []: Sunnyvale
Enter the node management interface port [e0c]: e0d
Enter the node management interface IP address: 192.0.2.66
Enter the node management interface netmask: 255.255.255.192
Enter the node management interface default gateway: 192.0.2.1
A node management interface on port e0d with IP address 192.0.2.66 has been created.


Cluster setup is now complete.

To begin storing and serving data on this cluster, log in to the command-line
interface (for example, ssh admin@192.0.2.60) and complete the following
additional tasks if they have not already been completed:

- Join additional nodes to the cluster by running "cluster setup" on
  those nodes.
- For HA configurations, verify that storage failover is enabled by
  running the "storage failover show" command.
- Create a Vserver by running the "vserver create" command.


In addition to using the CLI to perform cluster management tasks, you can manage
your cluster using OnCommand System Manager, which features a graphical user
interface that simplifies many cluster management tasks. This software is
available from the NetApp Support Site.

Exiting the cluster setup wizard.

Step 1 of 3: Join an Existing Cluster
You can type "back", "exit", or "help" at any question.


Enter the name of the cluster you would like to join [cluster1]:

Joining cluster cluster1


Step 2 of 3: Configure Storage Failover (SFO)

SFO is licensed.
SFO will be enabled when the partner joins the cluster.

You can type "back", "exit", or "help" at any question.

Enter the node management interface port [e0c]:
Enter the node management interface IP address: 192.0.2.67
Enter the node management interface netmask [255.255.255.192]:
Enter the node management interface default gateway [192.0.2.1]:
A node management interface on port e0c with IP address 192.0.2.67 has been created.
