Will this node be a cluster member (Y/N)?
What is the node's DECnet node name?
Enter the 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 ($) or underscores (_). This is the name you specified in step 12 of the installation procedure.
What is the node's DECnet node address?
Enter the DECnet node
address; for example, 2.2. This is the address you specified in step 13 of the installation procedure.
Will the Ethernet be used for cluster communications
(Y/N)? (Alpha only)
Enter N for an OpenVMS CI-only
cluster or DSSI-only cluster.
Otherwise, enter Y.
Enter this cluster's group number:
Enter a number in the range of 1 to 4095 or 61440 to 65535.
Enter this cluster's password:
the cluster password. The password must be from 1 to 31 alphanumeric
characters in length and can include dollar signs ($) and underscores
Reenter this cluster's password for verification:
Reenter the password.
Will MYNODE be a disk server (Y/N)?
Enter Y 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.
Will MYNODE serve RFxx disks (Y)? (Alpha only)
Enter a response appropriate for your DSSI configuration, if such
disks are available.
Enter a value for MYNODE’s
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 values.
Does this cluster contain a quorum disk (Y/N)?
For CI-only, 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.
