Introduction
This document defines the supported HP NetServer LP2000r configurations using the HP Rack Storage/12FC
and Microsoft Cluster Server and one or two HP Rack Storage/12s. These configurations minimize single
points of failure (SPOF, SPOFless

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.
