Introduction
This document defines supported HP NetServer LH 3000 configurations with HP Rack Storage/12FC and
Microsoft Cluster Server. These configurations minimize single points of failure (SPOF, SPOFless
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.
This guide is prescriptive; it describes the configurations supported by HP. Any deviance to these
configurations can result in an inoperative cluster or an operating cluster with degraded performance,
hidden SPOFs, etc., and therefore will not be supported by HP.
