Applies to:

Oracle SuperCluster T5-8 Half Rack - Version All Versions and later
Oracle SuperCluster T5-8 Full Rack - Version All Versions and later
SPARC SuperCluster T4-4 Full Rack - Version All Versions and later
Oracle SuperCluster M7 Hardware - Version All Versions and later
Oracle SuperCluster M6-32 Hardware - Version All Versions and later
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)
Background: The Oracle SuperCluster uses a partitioned infiniband fabric in order to segregate traffic . All database and exadata traffic utilize the default partition key (PKEY) of FFFF and the ZFSSA access is over what we refer to as "the storage network" on PKEY 8503.

Goal

This note will assist you in setting in configuring the proper components in the global zone that will then support creating the storage network IPMP group in the Solaris 11 local zones on Oracle SuperCluster.
