Introduction
This document defines the supported HP NetServer LT 6000r configurations with HP Rack Storage/12FC
and 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; 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.
