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. This guide is prescriptive;...
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. Redundant power distribution units (PDU’...
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. Cabinet HP Rack Storage 12/FC – D5991A RAID arrays Not more than 8 physical drives per logical array and not more than 8 LUNs are permitted per cluster.
may not be used for client communication. NIC: Model Embedded Any that is on both the HP Tested Products List and the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility List. Driver Hptxnt5.sys 4.02.27 or later Vendor supported driver. No. of NICs 1 minimum For SPOFless, 2 NICs configured as a fault-tolerant team are recommended.
Fibre-channel HBA with GBIC Fibre-channel Hub with GBICs. NOTES 1. The HBA and NICs are depicted in PCI slots as follows: NetRAID-1M in P1 D8602B in P2 D5013B in P3 2. The bottom two shared storage devices are SCSI HP Rack Storage/12s and are optional to the cluster configuration.
Power Cabling to Separate Power Circuits (For SPOFless with 2 hubs, connect second hub to PDU that first hub is not attached to)
Fibre-channel HBA with GBIC Fibre-channel Hub with GBICs Each copper cable goes to Port ‘ x’ on the RS/12FCarray controllers. NOTES 1. The local array controller, HBA and NICs are depicted in PCI slots as follows: NetRAID-1M in P1 HBA in slot P2 D5013B in P3 2.
Fibre-channel HBA with GBIC For a direct connection, copper cable goes to Port ‘ x’ on first RS/12FC array controller. NOTES 1. The local array controller HBA and NICs are depicted installed in PCI slots as follows NetRAID-1M in P1 HBA in P2 D5013B in P3 2.
