IBM Rational ClearCase support for AIX PowerHA

White paper


Abstract

This document describes AIX PowerHA concepts, explains AIX PowerHA configuration, and provides instructions for configuring IBM Rational ClearCase on AIX PowerHA. This document describes the similarities and differences between configuring Rational ClearCase on AIX PowerHA and on Veritas Clustering System (VCS). Further, the document outlines what can be expected of ClearCase performance when ClearCase fails over in the AIX PowerHA environment.
