Introduction
This document defines the supported HP NetServer LXr 8000 and A3661B High Availability Disk Array
Model 30/FC (LXr 8000 / Model 30-FC) configurations for Microsoft Cluster Server. These
configurations minimize single points of failure (SPOF), provide maximum availability, and have been
certified by Hewlett-Packard and Microsoft. 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.
