node be a cluster member (Y/N)?
the node's DECnet node name?
DECnet node name (for example, MYNODE). The DECnet node name can
be from one to six alphanumeric characters in length and cannot
include dollar signs ($) or underscores (_). This is the name you specified
in step 12 of the installation procedure.
the node's DECnet node address?
DECnet node address; for example, 2.2. This is the address you specified
in step 13 of the installation procedure.
Ethernet be used for cluster communications (Y/N)? (Alpha only)
for a CI-only or DSSI-only OpenVMS
Cluster. Otherwise, answer Y.
cluster's group number:
number in the range of 1 to 4095 or 61440 to 65535.
cluster password. The password must be from 1 to 31 alphanumeric
characters in length and can include dollar signs ($) and underscores
this cluster's password for verification:
be a disk server (Y/N)?
if you want local disks to be served to the cluster (mandatory for local
area and mixed-interconnect configurations). See the HP OpenVMS Cluster Systems manual
for information about served cluster disks.
serve RFxx disks (Y)? (Alpha only)
response appropriate for your DSSI configuration, if such disks are
Enter a value for MYNODE’s ALLOCLASS
In an OpenVMS Cluster environment, the
allocation class value cannot be zero if the node serves DSSI or
CI disks to other cluster members, or if volume shadowing will be
used on this system. In either case, the ALLOCLASS value must be
a number from 1 to 255.
HP recommends that you thoroughly
review the chapter on cluster storage devices in the HP OpenVMS Cluster Systems manual.
This manual also includes the rules for specifying allocation class
cluster contain a quorum disk (Y/N)?
SCSI, local area, and mixed-interconnect configurations, enter Y
or N, depending on your configuration. For most DSSI systems, enter
Y. However, if you are adding a two-system DSSI configuration to an
existing cluster (in which case you might not need a quorum disk),
you can answer N. If you enter Y, the system asks for the name
of the quorum disk. Enter the device name of the quorum disk. For
information about quorum disks, see the HP OpenVMS Cluster Systems manual.
