Microsoft Cluster Server. These configurations minimize single points of failure (SPOF, SPOFless ) and provide extended availability. The specific configuration certified and supported by both Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft is defined, as are other guidelines to assist you in configuring your clustered NetServers.
LANs: Client LAN Any NIC that is HP and Microsoft approved. See Client LAN below. For a SPOFless cluster, two D5013B NICs configured with AFT is recommended. Intra-cluster Embedded NIC with crossover cable, or, configure as a VLAN through an (Heartbeat) LAN ethernet switch.
Shared HP Rack Required Storage/12FC Host Bus Adapter Model HP Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter - HP D8602A No. of controllers Driver Hhba5100.sys 2.06 RAID level 0, 1, 3, 5, 10 For SPOFless configurations a fault tolerant RAID type, e.g. RAID 5, is recommended for all shared storage.
HP Rack Storage/12 Optional Number of cabinets: 1 – 2 Model HP Rack Storage/12 – D5989B plus two D6025B SCSI cards for each cabinet Status SCSI ID 5 (fixed) Disk SCSI IDs 0 – 3, 8 – 15 (fixed) Disk drives: Same as HP Rack Storage/12FC Cables Any HP LVD SCSI cables from the following list:...
Fibre-channel HBA with GBIC 6-port Fibre-channel Hub with GBICs NOTES 1. The HBA and NICs may be installed in PCI slots as follows: Client LAN in P1 HBA in P8 Intra-cluster LAN (embedded NIC) 2. The bottom two shared storage devices are SCSI HP Rack Storage/12’s and are optional to the cluster configuration.
Power Cabling to Separate Power Circuits (SPOF)
Fibre-channel HBA with GBIC 6-port Fibre-channel Hub with GBICs. Each copper cable goes to Port ‘x’ on the RS/12FCarray controllers. NOTES 1. The HBA and NICs may be installed in PCI slots as follows: Client LAN AFT team in slots P5 and P6 Intra-cluster LAN (embedded NIC) FC HBA in P8 2.
Power Cabling to Separate Power Circuits (SPOFless) NOTE: Redundant power cabling requires 4 Power Supplies...
Fibre-channel HBA with GBIC For a direct connection, copper cable goes to Port ‘x’ on first RS/12FC array controller. NOTES 1. The HBA and NICs may be installed in PCI slots as follows: Client LAN AFT team in slots P5 and P6 Intra-cluster LAN (embedded NIC) FC HBA in P8 2.
Versions 13 October 2000 Removed “required” from hub spec. 5 September 2000 Corrected power supply notes. 25 August 2000 Labeled drawings with ‘x’ and ‘y’ rather than explicit ports. 23 August 2000 Added 800 and 933 MHz processors. Changed boot device specs to include DAC.
