How to install Solaris Cluster 3.3 on Solaris 10 ?

Here we will see how to install oracle Solaris Cluster  3.3 u2 on Solaris 10 x86 system. I haven’t showed any interest on Solaris cluster but getting many requests to write about it. So i took some time and now i am back with Solaris Cluster series articles which will help you to setup the cluster from scratch.Our goal will be making high availability zones using the cluster service. Here we will just see the installation part.

I have used Solaris 10 update 11 for this setup.
