Assumptions:
All files are copied or Downloaded to home folder of Solaris SPARC Machine
There are 2 Solaris machines named Machine1 & Machine2.
Installation Directory will be opt folder.
Mozilla is installed in /usr/sfw/bin folder.

1.Pre-requisites
a.You must be the root user
b.Must know basics about Solaris System & Commands.
c.Must have all the correct versions of Installation files.
2.Download below files from IBM
3.Copy to the solaris system
4.unzip & Extract the downloaded tar.gz files by the following command
>gunzip <filename.tar.gz>
The above command will produce a file in <filename.tar> format.
Use the below command to Untar the file.
>tar -xvf <filename.tar>
The above command will produce number of files and folders.

5.Before installing export mozilla home(export cmd given below) if you are installing from remote computer.
(Optional if installing from local machine)

> export BROWSER=/usr/sfw/bin/mozilla

7.Execute the following command to invoke the installer.
> ./launchpad.sh

8.In installer choose the install IBM application server option.
continue installation and provide the product install location /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer
Then Choose environments “cell(Deployment Manager and a Managed node)” & Click on next.
Give administrative security username & password if you want else skip it , click next to start install.
Keep all other values default.
Once installation finishes click finish.
This finishes the installation of IBM AppServerm in machine 1.
Installation in machine2 will be done after installation of IBMIHS and Plugin in Machine1.

9.IBMIHS and Plugin installation in Machine1.
>Unzip & extract the tar.gz file same as done previously in step number4
>Invoke the installer by using ./launchpad.sh command.
>choose “Launch the installation wizard for IBM HTTP Server” option.
>accept the license agreement and click on next to begin installation.
>give the product install location value as /opt/IBM/HTTPServer
>Give HTTP Port: 80 and HTTP Admin port : 8008
>provide the username and password to create a user ID for IBM IHS login or If IBMIHS security is not required skip it.
>Check or uncheck the option for setup IBM HTTP Administration to administer HTTP server according to requirement.
>Give “Webserver1” in webserver definition field and local hostname for Application server(Here Sunfire1).
>Check the “Install the IBM HTTP Server plugin for IBM HTTP Server”.
>keep all other value default during installtion.
>Once installation finishes no need to install plugin again because the IBMIHS 6.1 package automatically installs Plugin too.

10.Installation of IBM AppSerever in Machine2.
>unzip & Extract the downloaded tar.gz files by the following command
>gunzip <filename.tar.gz>
>The above command will produce a file in <filename.tar> format.
>Use the below command to Untar the file.
>tar -xvf <filename.tar>
>The above command will produce number of files and folders.
>Before installing export mozilla home(export cmd given below) if you are installing from remote computer.
(Optional if installing from local machine)
> export BROWSER=/usr/sfw/bin/mozilla
>Execute the following command to invoke the installer.
> ./launchpad.sh
>In installer choose “Launch the installation wizard for IBM application server Network Deployment” option.
>continue installation and provide the product install location /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer
>Then Choose environments “Custom” & Click on next.
>Give the Deployment Manager hostname i.e Machine1 , SOAP port number (default:8879).
>Give administrative security username & password if you want else skip it , click on Next.
>choose Federate the managed node later with AddNode command and Click next to start install.
>Keep all other values default.
>Once installation finishes click finish.
>This finishes the installation of IBM AppServerm in machine2 too.

11. Regular Configurations to make the Systems Up.

>Navigate to location /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/ on Machine1.
>Do a “ls -ltr” to view the profiles present.(Here Dmgr01(as Deployment Manager Profile) & AppSrv01(as Application Server)
>Go to Dmgr01/bin and execute the following command to make the Deployment Manager profile up & Running.
>./startManager.sh to start the deployement manager.
>Go to AppSrv01/bin and execute the following command to make the AppServer Profile up & Running.
>./startNode.sh
>Now Navigate to location /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/ on Machine2 Containing only AppServer.
>Go to /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/ and do a “ls -ltr” to list the profile present( Here Custom01)
>Move to Custom01/bin and run the following commandto add & federate the Custom01 profile to the AppSrv01.
>./addNode.sh sunfire1 -profileName Custom01
>If the above command shows error in execution then check the date & time in both systems,If you found any time differences between the two systems then synchronise both the systems time.
>After Successful synchronisation run the same command(given above) again to add node to Machine1’s node.

12.Create & configuring  WebServer for the cluster environment.
>As we require WebSopheres java to run the script to configure WebServer.
>Go to location /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin folder in machine1 and from there run the following command to automatically configure the webserver for Machine1 and Machine2.
>From the /opt/IBM/Websphere/AppServer/bin folder run “/opt/IBM/HTTPServer/Plugins/bin/configurewebserver1.sh”
>The above command will create and configure a new WebServer for the Machine1 & Machine2 Cluster environment.
>From here all other configurations can be done from the WebSphere Console.
>Default Console Url: http://Machine1:9060/ibm/console
