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.
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. See Intra-cluster LAN below. Power source Direct from power mains, power conditioner or uninterruptible power supply (UPS) using any power conditioner or UPS.
