I really would go with the "Oracle Solaris Cluster Concepts Guide" (http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E18728_01/html/821-2682/index.html) first. It gives you a clear understanding of how the cluster is supposed to work.
There are a couple of how-to's on http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/solaris-cluster/documentation/cluster-how-to-1389544.html . I think they are helpful too.
To start deploying HA services, I would go with
a) configuring an HA file system
b) configuring an HA IP address
c) configuring a simple HA service based on GDS (see: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E18728_01/html/821-2848/gds-1.html)
For b) just do a
clrg create test-rg; clrslh create -g test-rg <name of IP address); clrg online -M test-rg
Then you should have an HA IP address that you can switch between nodes.
BTW: The documentation I quote is for OSC 3.3 5/11. If you are on S11 and OSC 4.0 please use http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23623_01/index.html
Could you just clarify your question a little?
1. Are you talking about an external zpool that is providing the iSCSI devices
2. By shared file system, do you mean a failover file system (mounted on one clustrer node at a time) or a global file system (mounted on all cluster nodes at once)
However, if you are trying to create a FFS >Failover FileSystem, you would use the HA-Storage(+) Resource and refer to the "Zpool" property. Use ZFS/Zpool command syntax to set ZFS/Zpool properties (mount point, zoned, etc). There are restrictions regarding using a disk with ZFS as a quorum device. Refer to the documentation or look at Tim Read's books. HTH, Michael
