Once you have completed the setup tasks as described in the previous section, you are ready to create and extend your Oracle resource hierarchies.
The following four tasks are described in this guide, as they are unique to an Oracle resource instance and different for each Recovery Kit.
- Create a Resource Hierarchy Creates an application resource hierarchy in your LifeKeeper cluster.
- Extend a Resource Hierarchy Extends a resource hierarchy from the primary server to a backup server.
- Unextend a Resource Hierarchy Unextends (removes) a resource hierarchy from a single server in the LifeKeeper cluster.
- Delete a Resource Hierarchy Deletes a resource hierarchy from all servers in your LifeKeeper cluster.
The following tasks are described in the GUI Administrative Tasks section within the LifeKeeper Online Product Manual, because they are common tasks with steps that are identical across all recovery kits.
- Create a Resource Dependency. Creates a parent/child dependency between an existing resource and another resource instance and propagates the dependency changes to all applicable servers in the cluster.
- Delete a Resource Dependency. Deletes a resource dependency and propagates the dependency changes to all applicable servers in the cluster.
- In Service. Brings a resource hierarchy into service on a specific server.
- Out of Service. Takes a resource hierarchy out of service on a specific server.
- View/Edit Properties. View or edit the properties of a resource hierarchy on a specific server.
Note: Throughout the rest of this section, configuration tasks are performed using the Edit menu. You can also perform most of these tasks:
- from the toolbar
- by right clicking on a global resource in the left pane of the status display
- by right clicking on a resource instance in the right pane of the status display
Using the right-click method allows you to avoid entering information that is required when using the Edit menu.
