(see Version History at the end of this document)
Introduction
This document defines the supported HP NetServer LH3 configurations with HP Rack Storage/12s and /8s
and 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.
