3.2.2 Setting up the cluster
We set up the clustered servers based on the following sequence of actions:
1. Prepare AIX 5L Version 5.1 for clustering. Install the necessary AIX fix packs.
2. Set up HACMP/ES v5.1.
a. Install and set up HACMP/ES base software on both nodes.
b. Install and set up the latest clustering fix pack for 5.1 on both nodes prior to the initial
c. Complete the HACMP/ES planning worksheets.
Refer to “HACMP/ES planning worksheets: Completed” on page 58 to see the
worksheets used for this test configuration.

a. Application servers and resource groups for DB2 UDB and EnterpriseOne 8.9 software
(see Figure 3-2) were included.
Resource Group rgJDE controls the application server asJDE, service IP addresses
and shared SSA vgJE and vgJDE2 volume groups dedicated to the ttclrs1 node.
Resource Group rgDB2 controls the application server asDB2, service IP addresses
and shared SSA vgLData, vgJRData, and vgIndex volume groups dedicated to the
b. Application scripts to start up and shut down application servers in the event of failure
or resource group migration were added.
The resource groups were defined as cascading without fallback. See Chapter 6,
“Application script examples for EnterpriseOne 8.9 with HACMP/ES” on page 41.
For HACMP cluster setup, follow the guidelines in HACMP for AIX 4.5: Enhanced Scalability
