Before continuing to set up the LifeKeeper hierarchy, determine the IP address that the SAP resource will use for failover or switchover. This is typically the virtual IP address used during the installation of SAP using the parameter SAPINST_USE_HOSTNAME. This IP address is a virtual IP address that is shared between the nodes in a cluster and will be active on one node at a time. This IP address will be different than the IP address used to protect the database hierarchy. Please note these IP addresses so they can be utilized when creating the SAP resources.
