Configuring the service group for Sybase from Cluster Manager (Java console)

A template for the Sybase resource groups is automatically installed with the VCS agent for Sybase. Using the VCS cluster Manager (Java console), you can view the template, which displays the Sybase service group, its resources and their attributes. You can dynamically modify the attributes' values as necessary for your configuration.

To configure a service group from the Java console

  1. Make sure that the Sybase type definition file is imported in your configuration.
  2. Launch the Cluster Configuration wizard using any of the following ways:

    • From the Cluster Explorer menu, select Tools > Configuration Wizard.

    • If no service groups exist on the system, Cluster Explorer prompts you to launch the Cluster Configuration wizard. Click Yes when prompted.

    The Loading Templates Information window appears, and launches the wizard.
  3. Review the information in the Welcome dialog box and click Next.
  4. Specify the name of the service group and the target systems on which the service group is configured.

    • Enter the name of the service group.

    • From the Available Systems box, select the systems on which to configure the service group.

    • Click the right arrow to move the selected systems to the Systems for Service Group box. To remove a system from the box, select the system and click the left arrow.

    • Specify system priority for the service group to failover. System priority is numbered sequentially, with the lowest assigned number denoting the highest priority.

    • Select the Service Group Type as Failover and click Next.

  5. On the Would you like to use a template to configure the service group? dialog box, click Next to configure the service group using a template.
  6. Select the SybaseGroup template to configure a Sybase service group.

    If applicable, a window opens to notify that names of some resources within the new service group are already in use. Resolve the name clashes, if any and click Next.

  7. Click Next to create the service group that is based on the selected template.

    A progress indicator displays the percentage of the commands that are executed to create the service group. The actual commands are displayed at the top of the indicator.

  8. After the service group is created, click Next to edit the attributes of the resources.

    The left pane in the dialog box lists all the resources for the Sybase service group. Select a resource from the left pane to list the attributes on the right pane. The attributes in bold denote mandatory attributes. You can modify the attribute values as given in the procedure that follows.

  9. Click Finish to accept the default values and complete the configuration.

To edit the Sybase service group resource attributes

  1. Select the resource from the list on the left pane. The resource attributes appear in the right pane.
  2. Select the attribute to be modified and click the edit icon in the Edit column.
  3. In the Edit Attribute dialog box, enter the attribute values. To modify the scope of the attribute, choose the Global or Local option.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Repeat the procedure for each resource and click Finish. Edit the attributes for all the resources according to your configuration.
