The following sequence is recommended for installing and configuring the Sybase ASE product and SPS software. Each of these steps links to detailed tasks.
After you have performed these tasks, you will be ready to create the SPS resource hierarchy to protect your Sybase ASE Server(s).
Resource Configuration Tasks
Describes the various functions you may perform on your hierarchies using the LifeKeeper GUI: create, extend, delete and unextend.
Once you have completed the setup tasks described in the previous section, you are ready to create and extend your Sybase ASE resource hierarchies.
The following tasks are available for configuring the SPS for Linux Sybase ASE Recovery Kit:
- Create Resource Hierarchy – Creates a Sybase ASE resource hierarchy
- Delete Resource Hierarchy – Deletes a Sybase ASE resource hierarchy
- Extend Resource Hierarchy – Extends a Sybase ASE resource hierarchy from the primary server to the backup server
- Unextend Resource Hierarchy – Unextends (removes) a Sybase ASE resource hierarchy from a single server in the SPS cluster
- Testing Your Resource Hierarchy – Tests your Sybase ASE resource hierarchy
- Create a Resource Dependency. Creates a parent/child dependency between an existing resource hierarchy 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.
