The following setup is required for clustering the MySQL database files with Novell Cluster Services:
Novell Cluster Services must be installed and configured as described in OES 11 SP1: Novell Cluster Services 2.1 for Linux Administration Guide.
MySQL must be installed on every node in the cluster where you want MySQL to run. The installation is described in Section 3.2, Installing and Enabling MySQL.
The SAN device that you want to use for the MySQL database must be accessible to all nodes in the cluster. It will be activated on only one node at a time.
You must create a shared Linux Logical Volume Management (LVM) volume group where you will store the MySQL database and configuration file. This setup is described in Section 3.3, Creating an LVM Volume Group and Logical Volume.
